Wait. So the choices are between a clean house and a baby?!?!!

Amber, good point about the protein. I haven't been doing as well as I should be, because I've just not been as interested in eating. I've also been just sitting and reading more than I usually do, so maybe eyestrain is contributing. Who knows!

sounds like lots of cleaning and preparing going on...I need to get cleaning and decluttering.

I am feeling like crap physically because of this darn cold I am trying to get rid of. My dh and ds2 are also dealing with it so hopefully we can clear it up before baby shows up.

I got some blood work and urine work back today and everything is great....so provided my blood pressure doens't go up I am back on for a homebirth!!!

Hopefully baby shows up sometime next week while my midwife is on call.....

Tonight is LLL meeting so that will be nice to get out of the house and away from kids who are driving me bonkers!!!

That is about it for me right now.

The bathroom is clean!!! And the laundry is doing it's thing! : Gosh, I've been so productive today!

I'm getting the acne, too. After 7-8 months of perfectly clear, now I'm breaking out? I hope that's a subtle sign of impending birth. I'm sorry others have it too, but it's good to know I'm not the only one.

I haven't done much cleaning, but I did get 3 loads of laundry done and the dishwasher is running now. That's not too bad considering the complete lack of ambition I seem to have these days. Now, I need to figure out what we're having for dinner.

I just scheduled my acupuncture "induction" for next Wednesday! She said to bring someone with me to drive "just in case." I don't have high hopes of it happening the first time around, but now I am feeling a little nervous! I just really want to avoid a medical induction due to my continually rising BP...

Good luck!! When I've had acupuncture it's been extremely effective and I've seen it do wonders for others too! At the very least you'll get to spend some time relaxing while the needles are in! I always felt so refreshed afterwards.

Oh Stephanie sorry to hear about your fall! I'm sure your LO was well protected in your tummy. I hope you're feeling better soon.

JMarie: Happy to hear that you're GBS negative.

Em: That sounds like mucous plug to me. Very similar to how I lost/have been losing mine.

I hope the mamas who aren't feeling well today feel better soon!

Like many of you, I've been cleaning today! I have a very regimented cleaning schedule usually, but I did a lot of tomorrow's chores today. I just couldn't control myself. I also attacked the grout in our 6x6 shower. The house kind of sparkles now!

I still feel great, but I seem to get tired really quickly now. I kept having to stop cleaning and take breaks. Maybe I'm sitting on my butt too much lately? With the baby at +1, it's a bit of a challenge to move around, but I've still been going to yoga once a week and taking strolls or going shopping to walk around some.

i'm still preggers and need to be cleaning house too....notice I'm on the computer!!! Today has been a LONG day. I was up all night because I was too anxious to sleep hoping that the BH would pick up....then I ended up napping until noon. I haven't done much since then. I've given DD a bath, washed some diapers, put away some laundry. I REALLY need to vac our bedroom and mop all of the floors....we'll see if I get to it though!

I took a long soak this afternoon (after all that cleaning), and the baby was moving around SO MUCH that she was making waves in the tub. DH doesn't believe me, but it's true.

I'm so astonished by how strong she is now. I guess she's pretty much ready for the world.

Ok, so I decided that I am too huge to clean... No, but I am keeping it to the basics. Oh...when will this baby come!!!
post #51 of 54
I am all for this baby coming this weekend, cause my house is clean and I know it isn't going to stay that way! It's just not possible

Off to put my laundry in the dryer and deal with all of that before DH gets home and we take a walk. I want to bring this baby down... right now it's high enough to give me heartburn yet low enough to be annoying and painful, so may as well just be one of the two, right?

Any of you 2nd (or more) time mamas have a baby who has dropped? I want this baby to drop...

Our dining/game room is all vacuumed now. I'd forgotten how tiring vacuuming can be. You know, maybe if I did such on a regular basis instead of just when I realize I could knit a new dog from all the fur on the floor, it wouldn't take so long... hmmm...

Today is my due date, and the phone calls have started. My aunt has been calling every few days for the past week and a half, but I just let the calls go to voicemail. : I've also gotten lots of questions about induction - my BIL's girlfriend thought I'd for sure be having the baby today and was a bit surprised to hear otherwise! I'm in full nesting mode and have washed just about every piece of clothing and bedding we own. I'm also almost done with my PhD applications, so here's to hoping!

I'm having some maternity photos taken tonight, and I'm really excited!! We've been meaning to do them for weeks, but for various reasons it hadn't worked out - better late than never! : One of my husband's closest friends is taking them, and I know they'll be gorgeous.

I agree with previous posters about being all spacey and having an unusual amount of acne. Hopefully it means impending labor.... :

Wow, it sounds like we're cleaning maniacs today. I've often thought that I'd love to do a cleaning coop with friends, and it sounds like (if we lived anywhere near each other IRL) we'd be perfect candidates for each other! I got everything (but less than I had intended) done before my friend arrived at 11 this morning. Lunch was great, and we had great conversations. (DD just added 3 : emoticons to my post while I was peeing-- not really in context, however.)
I showed her DD's school, just in case she needs to pick her up there or something while I'm in labor. DD was so happy to see this friend, and had already told her teacher all about our lunch plans. Too cute.

Something weird happened while I was cleaning today which made it clear that I need to slow down. My middle toe on my left food suddenly fell asleep and would not move. I was down on the floor, and perhaps not paying attention to what my limits were. Still, it was odd. I moved the toe with my fingers and it went right back to where it was. It didn't affect my workout after lunch, and I was able to go a mile on the treadmill, but I increased it down by 5-10 minutes, walking at a slower pace.

I'm so excited about tomorrow! I get to visit my old work to drop something off and be oohed and ahhed over, then go in for a massage, go buy something to wear at my maternity photo shoot on Friday, and then meet DH for lunch at this lovely little bistro for lunch. I've only been there once before, but I AM GOING TO GET DESSERT. I rarely order dessert out, and rarely with DH in tow, b/c he's diabetic, but this place is so good at their desserts (I've heard) that I can't wait. Moreover, since the place is all fresh, seasonal, local fare, I can't wait!

I'm almost scary ready for this baby to come, as far as finishing projects is concerned. For some reason I was deluding myself that if I put things off, the baby wouldn't come until I was done. Silly, huh? I've given up on the deep cleaning plans, however, and am saving them for my mom when she's here. I'm going to ask my dad to build me my "ultimate" compost enclosures in our garden.

I hope you all had a nice, restful day, with easy labor for those of you who who are in it.
