Congrats Kaitlyn! I bet that is a load off of your mind.

Counting down the last few hours of my twenties now...


So far the big birthday plans for tomorrow are grocery shopping, haha.


I forgot Friday was the 13th...wonder how many LO's will decide to make their appearance then!

Thanks HCM! Today I've had massive boob pain. I hope things start happening soon.

Hang in there, ladies!

Started typing this yesterday & got distracted.


Congratulations Kaitlyn!


Happy Birthday Chili! Mine was  the 9th. I turned 38. Dh very kindly told me a few times that it was my 30th birthday.


Still pregnant here too. Baby is LOA, though & much, much lower so yay! for that. Sadly, being lower doesn't seem to be helping with reflux. If anything it's actually worse the last 2 days. I seem to be peeing less though, at least at night, which is odd. But nice.


Had a nice quiet birthday with just family. We ordered in & dh made me a cake.

My ob is pretty laid back but said he wants me to come back on Thursday for another check and if fluid is lower than we'll talk about inducing between Friday and Monday. I know that's four days away but I just don't even want to face the thought of induction. It makes me feel all crazy. I just want to be able to labor at home and do my own thing and not feel like someone is watching my every move, etc. I've been having random bouts of "real" ctx and last night they were intense enough to wake me up but since about 4:30 am yesterday, pretty much nothing. Not even many bh! Blah...


The newest studies show low fluid is not a reason to induce unless there are other issues. Just make sure you're really hydrated, since that can help with levels. I'm really curious what the actual numbers are, because I've heard a lot of low fluid stories and most of them, the women actually have low normal levels, not truly low. 


Gloria Lemay has a couple good articles on low fluid http://www.glorialemay.com/blog/?p=306 & http://www.glorialemay.com/blog/?p=60
