Congrats to the new mamas and babies!! The stories are wonderful and so inspiring, can't wait to add one myself! And all these happy, healthy babes...what a wonder!
Sorry to those stuck in periodic laboring...I am 39weeks today and haven't really had any contractions or anything, but unlike last time I'm not really doing any of the things that could get that going (no sex, nipple stimulation, etc.) I found the stop and start so frustrating last time that I'm trying my best to just wait for baby this time...like Tracy was saying, you can end up with lots of labor but no baby, but the ideal is a little labor and an easy birth. Who knows if I'll make it much more in the patience department, though!!
Funny thing happened, all last week baby's butt was causing a major ache in my belly and gave me a round patch of stretchmarks right where it stuck out. So two nights ago I was talking to the baby and saying how funny it was that with Peri I got to enjoy learning the shape of one of her feet which was constantly sticking out of my side, but with the new baby I was only learning about his/her round bottom...and after that baby shifted away! So after mom's election on Tuesday (for town commissioner) I hope to have a little talk with baby and welcome him/her to come out...we'll see if it helps!
Oh, and I still don't have a middle name for a girl, but Suwannee is definitely the first name. I sure appreciated all the suggestions, but nothing's sounding quite right. Funny thing is, I love Suwannee Rose, but that's dd's middle name
so no go. Hehe, got a bit of time, though, and maybe I'll just have to branch away from nature names to more traditional ones. Though I've tried them and none sound quite right. Anyone else still having name dilemmas???
