post #22 of 51
I had a nice, boring 34 week appt this week. Got my cervix checked to get cleared to go to disneyworld for my birthday. Still long and tight. Somehow, that was a disappointment to me. I know I am still early, and I'm sure I won't deliver till 40+ a couple, but with all the bh and pretty 'real' feeling ctx (though not in any organized way, just a few here and there strong) I was hoping I was getting prepped and moving! I am anxious to meet him too Still nowhere for baby to sleep yet, except my chest or the swing! still need to buy a car seat, some diapers (I have 3 diapers-that ought to last an hour!) get registered at hospital, make/buy DD's big sister present, wash all clothes, clean out 'guest (ie, junk catchall) room for my dad visiting next week, and all the help after baby boy is here. Oh, and a million things to complete at work for maternity leave. And, tomorrow is my birthday-I'm going to Disney!!

Kothi - thanks so much for the update! It's wonderful to "meet" one of our DDC babes a little more thoroughly; she sounds divine

Happy early Birthday, avasmom! Have a great time at Disney.

Happy Valentine's Day to all the rest of you mamas! Anyone doing anything really special? DH and I are just planning on a relaxing evening at home, but we've been so busy lately that it feels like a luxury

Thinking of our FIVE (!) DDC babies... :

38 week appt

So I went to the doc this morning, still about 80% effaced, 2cm dialated. The babys head is at a +2 station. Just reminded me to come in if I have any leaking water since I went so quickly last time. Didn't really say anything about how long, but can they really?


So does the head desending have a lot to do with timing?

Good job with staying so positive Kothi!
How is your son doing?
post #27 of 51
happy birthday tomorrow Leigh! Have a good one!

OMG I'm gorging on chocolate. I'm embarrassing myself!

Oh Kothie she sounds so sweet. Glad that all is going good with her.


_on the homefront things are going well here. I am officially off terb for the long run. I took myself off due to the risks associated with it. I am doing a little bit of work here and there. Nesting like crazy, but really trying to remember that baby needs to stay put. We know have everything we need for baby...except a sling which is on the way. Today is bag packing day.

Kothi, my second little guy spent a week in the nicu with lung issues, pm me if you want to went about nicu's, stress etc. I'm so glad to hear she's doing well. I'm tired of all the danged snow. Pushing the stroller to get my older ds from school is doing a number on my back, I hate that people don't shovel. Luckily my chiro is helping a lot. I'm relieved to be at 34 weeks now, every milestone we pass without the pre-e showing up again is a good one.

Kothi, I'll be praying that your beautiful little girl can come home soon!

Just had my 36 wk MW appointment--she came to my house for the first time, which for some reason was so super exciting. I heart her--she's so awesome.

Baby is vertex, nice and low, great heart beat and kicking like mad, so obviously doing well. I have all my HB supplies at last, though I still need to try the adapter on the faucet, if I can find the wrench to get the faucet thingy off.

dh left this morning for a conference--he'll be gone until Sunday . Hoping I can survive the w/end with a crazy toddler: I'm sooooo tired, heavy, and just wanting to lay around and watch tv all day (not exactly conducive to finishing the chapter I'm working on).

I really want to treat myself to a new baby carrier, but can't decide which one to get. I guess I'm torn between a pouch (Mamma's Milk or similar) and a wrap (Gypsy Mama bali breeze). I really hate all the fabric and the heat of a wrap, but they are def more versatile. Any thoughts?

WHERE did you find the adapter?! We can't find the bloody thing at any of our hardware stores!
post #33 of 51
I got it--and the hose--at Big Lots! What a bargain. I hope it's the right one!

Kothi, So good to hear good news! Your description of your little girl brought tears to my eyes. She sounds absolutely precious.

I think nesting has set in here. I cleaned the kitchen all day today. I even made DH move the fridge and cleaned real well behind it. It was gross back there.

Other than the nesting, no other signs of labor starting soon. That's ok though. I've never been real confident in the DD since its based on my LMP. I'm ok with her cooking as long as she needs to.

I'm tired now. DH and I are relaxing tonight. We'll go out tomorrow as it's the anniversary of DH proposing.

I just cleaned both bathrooms! I mean walls, floors, under the sinks, every little nook and cranny. They are soooo nice right now!

Hope for me that I do not go into labor since DH is out of town and a 6 hour drive away! I don't think I will seeing as I am only 36 wks but oh that would suck if I did!
post #36 of 51
Kothi, thanks for all the details on the little sweetie pie!


I had my u/s and me appt today. During the u/s the baby was confirmed vertex! I was really thrilled. The baby was also sleeping or being uber quiet, but we got to see practice breathing, sucking, the baby's tongue, and so much more cool stuff. Apparently the baby has hair and weighs about 6lbs 10 oz. They almost sent me for an nst because the baby was so calm during the u/s, but before the mw appt, they had me eat a lollipop and the mw felt movement so she was ok with sending me home without the nst. I was grateful for that. They did the GBS test, but if I am still preggo in a couple of weeks they are going to have to redo it since I am on abx at the moment. The abx can cause a false neg.

Part of me doesn't want to go into labor before 2/21 because the 20th is DDs birthday. A part of me is ready to get this pregnancy over with though.

Having a busy week with work... I got my Peri to move my CS from 38 weeks to 37 weeks (March 7) to which he quipped "By the way I'm going out of town on 2/19 and won't be back until 3/4 so I expect you'll deliver while I'm gone" WTF??? *I* know I won't go to 37 weeks but her refuses to even attempt to schedule earlier

IN the meantime, dh and I DTD on this most amorous day and all of a sudden I'm contracting like crazy and trying to decided if I should make the hour drive to the hospital. My cx have looked like this:

1120
1130
1135
1139
1144
1148
1152
1154
1156
1204
1208
1214
1224
1229
1233
1238
1243
1249
1251
1256

Any suggestions?

Drink some more water and lay down a bit. If they slow down, get some rest, if not call the doc.

I should add that I am the wait and see type of person.
post #40 of 51
Drink some water, take a bath. I would wait and see but I don't fully know what your situation is with having to have a c/s and any baby worries. If you are worried call your doc. Can't hurt if you are not in labor they can just send you home.
