Vaq. How are you doing now?

The only adjustments I made were replacing vanilla extract with lemon extract, and adding more lemon peel.
This recipe yielded three dozen cupcakes. I ate at least six!
If you make them, come back and report!
SunnieP, is that the same as switching it to desktop mode? I'm so not tech savvy..lol! So far I've left it off of "mobile", and I'm able to post, so I guess this works.
I'm only 39 +3, and I'm already having the "this baby is never going to come" feeling. I don't know why I feel so hopeless all the sudden... my third baby was 8 days "late", so I shouldn't be surprised. Just so tired of the misleading Braxton hicks, I suppose.
Ultra, how are you feeling?
Ugh, contractions every 5-10 min yesterday afternoon/evening with some extreme low back pain, and then stop. Nothing at night to keep me up. Very tiny amount of bloody show in mucus this morning. No ctx yet today. This start/stop early labor is so frustrating. I was hoping to wake to water broken, or full out labor, sheesh.
Such a strange circumstance for me. If I could pick a time for a baby to be born it would not be right now! I am 38 weeks and think I'm getting close! My friend just passed away a week and a half ago due to serious kidney problems, huge shock to all of us. And then just today my husband's uncle just passed away, also very unexpected, kidney cancer ironically. My 6 yr old has the flu, my family is out-of-town to be there with family after the loss of my husband's uncle. Ugh...wondering if the stress is speeding up the process. If baby comes, he comes. It will be a very happy break in the madness.
So anyway, the midwife yesterday said I am a loose 1 cm dilated, 50% effaced, and Zero station. She said the baby is very low! I'm pretty sure I have been losing the mucous plug over the last week. Have been having BH contractions noticeably for the last week or two. In the last few days they've been stronger and more frequent but still irregular. I have been pooping a lot, which I hear your body may do before labor to clean itself out. Have been nauseous and sometimes light-headed, and kind of anxious and excited for the baby. Generally just feeling "different." In different circumstances, I would be walking up a storm and naturally inducing to get labor going. But with everything going on, I am trying to take it really easy to see if he'll wait at least a few more days. So that's my crazy early labor story. :/
