Oh, this thread is insane!! I read thru everyone's posts and want to reply to all but yikes!! Willemsmama-
don't worry, I think we are all excited for you, as are your midwives, that your body is gearing up for the birth, rather than thinking you're crying wolf! Any day now!Jenn
So sorry Ben is having a bad week, I know that is really hard to take. I would have cried, no doubt about it. I'm glad the bus is going ok though laisett (and anyone else new?)-
A big welcome to you! So glad you found us!toddler stuff-
Oh I am soooooo glad to hear I'm not the only one having problems!! Our ds who for a while was the BEST sleeper ever, now is taking HOURS to go to sleep for naps and bedtime- he will get out of bed repeatedly, sometimes it's after 12mn and he's still up! Or he finally falls asleep by 3 or 4 pm when it's time to wake up! Then he's so cranky and we have a bad day b/c his sleep is all messed up. And he makes all this crazy demands all day long and if we don't comply *immediately* he throws a fit! I can just imagine being in labor and him having tantrums or refusing to go to bed!GBS-
OMG, with everything going on I forgot to take probiotics! And I am usually big on that! My swab is this sat.- I decided to do it, I won't get abx but I'd like to know in case we have a hosp. transfer and so we can be careful and avoid vaginal exams, etc if I'm positive.MW home visit-
Sounds like a lot of us are having our home visits! Mine is Sat.! I have felt so stressed about the house being dirty- I am cleaning continuosly, I kid you not- and the place is a dog-hair infested wreck, STILL! It is pretty much impossible to keep a house clean with a toddler and 2 large heavily shedding dogs. I will be cleaning and scrubbing throughout my labor!! Otherwise I almost have everything on the supplies list- the carseat came yest. and dh has to install it, and my friend is loaning me a crock pot tomorrow and then my list is complete!My physical update-
My back is absolutely Killing Me!! I haven't been able to get to the chiro in a few months, and I have been desperate for it! I'm finally going on Sat. We drove 8 hrs in the car on Sat., then Wed. we went to the pumpkin patch and ds insisted on being carried the entire time, with a 1 hr drive either way, then the horrible chairs at work with no back support, and today another 1 hr drive each way to a work conference, and sitting there for 8 hrs in another awful chair- My back is screaming!!!
I'm not really getting many/any BH. I feel slightly bruised/mildly painful in my cervix area since having sex in a different position the other night. I feel some pressure on my pelvis, but nothing painful- I never had this last time! And the baby's butt is pressing SO HARD into my ribs, it is breathtakingly painful at times! And just think, I could have 6 more weeks to go
Whew, well that is enough for now! Gotta get to bed, lots to do tomorrow before Saturday's mw appt!
