Okay, let's start a new one. I hate having to read through 7 pages to find out where I last was!!!!!!!!!!!

So, the final stretch is on!! I cannot believe how many of you mamas are having serious signs of impending labor. I am due the first week of April but still have nothing but minor bh sporadically throughout the day. Now I am not trying to rush things, I love being pregnant, but I am sooooooooooooo curious to see if this is a boy or a girl. It is the tie-breaker in our house and I have no inclinations one way or the other. Strange, I dreamt the right sex on both of my other babies, I just KNEW who they were. This time, 36+ weeks and I have NO IDEA.

Are any of you planning a hb? What have you done to prepare the other children in the house ( if they will be there)? I think my kids feel that this is just another day in the life............ which in a way it is, but I suspect it will be a bit more of a bloody, intense day lol. My mw is looking for a birthing video to show them, hopefully she will find something that shows how it is all good and kinda scary rolled all together. We will see.

Stay healthy and happy moms. This is the final stretch for real this time!!!!!!!!!!!! I am thinking of you all--
Maria

Hi mamma's!!

I'm doing well. Dialated to 1-2 cm for 2 weeks now. He has really dropped -- even the dr mentioned that his head "was right there."
I was just released from bed rest (thank goodness!!!) and am now working again part time until baby decides to show up. Hopefully he'll be here sometime in the next week. I'm soooo uncomfortable with him so low! I have to run to the bathroom every 45 minutes!

dh and ds are getting excited. Both ask me daily if the baby is coming today. :

We're still trying to find *the* name, but are not having any luck. Right now we're thinking about Jacob Evan. Then again, who knows... I'll probably change my mind in a week!

We're planning a hospital birth, but wishing we were back in Michigan to be at a birthing center rather than a "labor and delivery ward." We're not close enough to a hospital with a birthing center rather than a maternity ward. Figures... Insurance companies are such a bummer... But I'm pretty vocal about my and baby's needs, so I'm not too worried about it.

Does anyone else have insomnia? I'm up 3 times a night for the bathroom, but then just can't get back to sleep. It's so frustrating! Then in the evening I'm soooo tired

And I thought that you're supposed to get this sudden burst of energy... That was the last 2 weeks for me. Now all I want to do is lay and rest. Oh well...

Good luck mamma's.
I hope to read all about your babies in the next couple weeks!!!

Posted this on the last one, but then I saw this one:

Wow... things sure have been going on w/ all of you...
Contractions, bedrest, visits to the hospital! I'm sure that's not fun.

Things have been boring here by comparrison. However, yesterday I hurt myself pretty badly. I picked up my ds to carry him to the bedroom, he was not behaving and was struggling.
Somehow, it feels like I pulled my muscles waaay down low in my pelvic area. It's been hard to walk and sit and lay and move. I took some tylenol and a bath last night, and was hoping to feel better this morning. It feels a little better, it is getting easier to walk but it still hurts to move and get up and down. I go to the Dr. tomarrow for my regular appt.

she's here.....

Soleil was born March 12 (over two weeks early!) at home, in the water, w/her daddy catching her. She's beautiful and healthy and we're doing great. Labor was around 1.5 hrs. and was the most enjoyable labor I've had. Really great.

Just wanted to LYK. Hang in there mamas.

Oh, that's exciting indigolillybear! We're shooting for March 17 to get an Irish baby!!! :LOL Really, after next Monday, my OB doesn't care what happens, as long as Adam is healthy. Meaning, he won't try to stop labor. I've BTDT, so, we'll see!

Congrats indigolilybear! Sounds like you had a good birth too! Enjoy your new little one!



My dh is out of town this week, so it really sucks me being in pain and not able to do much. My ds is acting up today cuz rather than fighting him I let him eat a bunch of junk earlier. My bathtub facut broke and I don't wanna call the apartment manager to fix it. I have my Dr. appt and my ds' music class tomarrow, so I'll let you all know how that goes.

Congrats Indigolillybear!

I'm getting anxious for my app in the morning, but afraid I'll be leaving dissapointed. I so want things to be *happening*!

I'm flipping back and forth between wanting to not be at home to keep my mind off things to wanting to curl up in a little ball on the couch!

Yes I still have insomnia although it hasn't been as bad as it was in the past, and gee whiz we are going through toilet paper like crazy, I think I'm peeing every 15 minutes.

I've gained about 35 lbs so far, but I can't wear my maternity pants anymore, the ridge along where the panel is cut out, cuts into my stomach when I sit down. I've broken out some summer dresses but I'm freezing in them so I have to wear a jacket -it's not a pretty site!

Sarahmae1, hope you feel better soon.

Congratulations, indigolilybear!!

I am feeling like this baby is never going to come. I feel too...normal to be only 2.5 weeks from giving birth! But the dr said today that I am 50% effaced and 1 cm dilated, so I guess it's starting to get real. I am still very active each day and without discomfort. What a change from my first pregnancy. This baby has become quite a mover the last week, too. Up until now, she was more quiet. I thought they were supposed to slow down as birth neared, but I guess not this one! Feel good, everyone.

Indigolilybear----yippie for you. Sounds like an easy labor and delivery!!! Enjoy your family!!!!!!!

I too have insomnia on occasion. What happens is I am so tired I fall asleep reading to the kids then don't wake up until after midnight when hubby comes in from his studio (he is a glass artist and works in a building out bacK), I cannot fall back asleep. But if I force myself out of the warm space of the kids room, I can come to the computer and stay awake. Then falling back to sleep after pee breaks seems easier.

Teachma, I hear what you are saying, I am nowhere near the physical signs of impending labor. My babies have always taken their own sweet time.

Christymama- let that baby inside you get nice and big, they seem so much healthier to me when they have a little chunk on them-- my first was 8lbs, my second was 6.5lbs and he seemed so tiny and fragile compared to his sister as an infant. I hope this time to go somewhere in the middle of those two! 7.4-7.9ish!!
Who can really tell??

Goodnight all- happy last days of pregnancy..
peace--
maria

Good morning all_-
I hope everyone is feeling better, still hanging in there anyway. This morning my workout is much slower paced. My 4 miles daily is becoming 2 miles and these are starting to hurt. I have such pain in my pubic bone, I mean like bad.

Anyone else feel tired atmost time throughout the day?? We have a busy week at dd's school- exhibition night and stuff like that-- hope I can stay awake to attend or she will be sooooooooo disappointed.

Thinking of you mamas-- maria

Hola, Chicas! Happy St. Patrick's Day! I hardly got a wink of sleep last night. I slept better in the hospital, if you can believe it!!! I kept on prowling around the house. I figure it's because I slept so much in the hospital, my body said, "NO MORE!!!!!" Some contractions, but nothing to write home about. I am bored silly because I really can't do anything. I mean, no one is here to stop me, but, well, hmmm...

Sometimes I wish I stayed in the hospital because at least there were PEOPLE around! :LOL I'm such good friends with the staff on antepartum that I felt very comfortable in there. Ah, well, I just got notice from our insurance company that they will not cover stomach stapling... And I thought I could ask my OB to throw that in for fun.. He'll be in that area anyway when he does the c-section, so why not? J/K Adam has got the hiccups right now and I'm debating on going out to the mailbox to mail our bills. Must do that or else we will have late fees... Can't afford those.

Oh, well, glad to hear everyone is doing well and wishing their babes will come soon. I'm going to pack Adam's bag today. I mean, it's not like he needs anything right now... :LOL

Maria, my 4 mile daily walks (on the treadmill, slight incline) have now decreased to 2.5 miles, very minimal incline. I totally know how you feel!

Well, hangin in there is just how I feel this week! My dr. thinks I may have torn a ligament down near my pubic bone, he says it will heal slowly on its own.

I'm a little frusterated because for the last several weeks I have been 'nesting' and it felt good to actually keep up w/ the house work for once, and get some things done that need to be done before baby comes! However, now that I am in pain I haven't done a thing all week and our place is a huge mess again, and the laundry is piling up!

Good news is that everything else w/ me and baby are still going really well. I am now going to be going weekly, and at my next check they will do the group b strep test and check dialtion. He said its not really nessisary since I'm having a c-section, but that they like to do the test just incase my water breaks before my scheduled date. I gained one more pound, so now I'm still down 1lb. from my pre-preg weight (total of 10lbs. lost and 9lbs. gained) which is good. Hopefully I'll come home weighing less than I did pre-preg!

Sarah : , mama to Lucas (8) , Ryan (5) : , Andrew (1yr) , and someone new : due early Dec.

I had my app today, they did my strep test-I get to find out results on Friday. (Please be -, please be -, please be -)

Blood pressure was good, I gained another 1 and 1/2 pounds (35 total now), I'm efacing, she didn't say I was dialated but she could feel the head. I've been busy reading the March mama's thread, and it's getting me ancy again

We've had snow the last few days, but it should be warming up again this week soon!

For some reason I woke up vomiting this morning, don't know why, of course I was looking for it to be a *sign*, LOL. I try to make everything into a sign! Anyway I felt better after a few hours and was reminded how wonderful it is to not be in *that* stage anymore!

It really won't be that long now! We just have to keep telling ourselves that!

We're off to have italian tonight! I really don't want any of the food though just their wonderful focacia bread and olive oil butter! YUM! I've beeen craving it like crazy.

I think I'm going to go to my grandma's next week, I've got to get myself and the kids out of the house! We only have one car so we spend ALL our time at home-we got to get out!!!!

Baby has hiccups ALL the time, I never noticed this with my others!

Bye all!!!!

Indigo-

I'm so happy for you! I love the name Soleil!!! Your birth must have rocked. I'll take some of those vibes-thanks! Enjoy your babymoon. I'm thinking of you.

Well, I pretty much stay in hemmoroid hell. Two babies pushing down all day is just not helping them heal. It'll be over soon.

I bought a little pool yesterday for the birth. I didn't want anything to big or bulky because I don't really envision myself hanging out there for too long. Went to Toys R US and the only small one they had was a Dora the Explorer pool with a ring toss game on it. I thought that would keep me occupied during labor.

I've ordered all my diapers and will have everything I need by next week. My blessingway is a week from Saturday so there's that to look forward to!!! I'm 36 weeks tomorrow and I told these babies that if they are cooked in two weeks they are allowed to come out! If I have to go 4 more weeks till 40 I think I will be very uncomfortable, but whatever will happen will. I think they are close to 6 pounds each now. They have no room left. There are always body parts sticking out. I look like something from the circus!

Take care ladies. May be a few days before I catch up again. It can be hard to sit at the computer.

The leaky breast thing just doesn't happen to me at all; I don't know why. With ds, I nursed him for 2.5 years and never once wore pads- I just never leaked. Of course, it could be different this time, but I have no leaking so far...And strangely, not peeing too much either. But man, am I hungry!!! I am now gaining weight rapidly, but I figure if I am suddenly so hungry, I really should eat, so I am. My blood presure is still 110/70, total weight gain is around 35 pounds, and I have 2 weeks and 2 days to go til due date. Still exercising nightly for 45 minutes or so. THe only bad news here is...Group B Strep positive. Yuck! I wasn't last time, though my dr says I probably tested false negative then. So I guess I will do the antibiotics. Anyone else?

I forgot to mention that my GSb came back Neg this time around. But I had it withthe other two babies SO I am going ot be treated as if I was Pos anyhow .. Makes me feel better because i know you can test Pos then be neg at time of birth or Test neg and then be post at time of birth.. So for me I am just going to go ahead with the antiobotic..
I wonder why i am such a leaky facuet.. I started to leak early with all my pregnancies But i never breastfed sooo maybe I have backed up milkers:LOL Gonna be breastfeed this time though I have gained about 18 pounds so far.. I to have started to gain weight more towards the end.. well I better get going shopping wore me out.:

Congrats Indigo!

Everyone sounds like they're doing relatively good.

This is def. a TMI post for me:

I had a dr. appointment yesterday and I was 2 cm 60% effaced and baby was at a -1 station...however, my dr. told me she was stingy with her stations. :LOL

Yesterday, I had like 6 bowel movements, and then yesterday afternoon I had a lot of pelvic pain. It wasn't accompanying any type of contraction, so I'm wondering if things were just a little upset from her checking me. I also was really itchy down there and thought I might be getting another infection (bacterial vaginosis or yeast infection). Or maybe things were just feeling itchy because of the pressure and all the bowel movements I had. Once my husband got home, I was able to take a nice bath and relax and the pelvic pain went away..

This morning my itchiness was gone but I started to lose my mucous plug. I thought I might have started losing part of it a week ago...but I just had one little glob so I'm wondering if it was just something else. But, today I definitely was losing it. With my daughter, I pretty much lost all of it the same day all at once and that was the day I went into labor. However, I've hardly had any BH contractions at all today, and I usually have those pretty frequently.

Can I just say I'm feeling pretty great? I know I know some of you hate me...but I swear I feel so good I can't believe that it's almost time for her to be here. I hope my recovery is swift and painless unlike what I went through with the delivery of Genevieve. I actually told the dr. yesterday that I did not want to know how many hemorrhoids or what degree of episiotomy or tear I have after the birth. She said "why don't I tell you how GREAT everything looks" :LOL She is so funny. I told her not to lie to me.

As a side, this is not the same dr. that I had as an OB when I was pregnant, nor is she the one that delivered Genevieve. What wound up happening after my delivery with Genevieve was that I never healed completely...the perineum that is. There were gaps. 3 months after the delivery I had surgery...basically I had another episiotomy to correct the other one. Done by a different dr. I'm so glad I got my 2nd opinion!

Hope you all have fantastic week!

Mrs. Edwards, that's awesome! I hope everything goes well for you!

Christy, of course your GBS came back negative. It's just harshin' your mellow!!! :LOL

Teachma, you are an inspiration for us lazy pregnant mamas! I wish I could actually move without pain.

mum2lillie, the vision of you sitting in a Dora the Explorer Ring Toss pool is just too too funny for words. I'll let the smiley do the talking. :

Bellafinn, I hear you about making everything a "sign" Here's your sign... :LOL I check
every time I wipe after peeing to see if I can see the slightest tinge of blood. TMI, I know, but true!

Sarahmae1, I know all about the nesting instinct. I haven't been able to clean now for about a week and I am frustrated because DH thinks cleaning is running the vaccuum over the carpet. Yes, it is, but, hey, what about the dust on the furniture, hmmm?

Hey, mommajubilee, do you itch pretty much everywhere? I can't sleep in my PJs anymore because I ITCH! DH was nice, though, he gave me a back rub last night. I think it was to silence my bitching!! :LOL

Christina, where are you? Are you doing okay? How's your bedrest going?

Love2all, you are awesome! I wish I could even move more than a quarter mile a day. DH says it's because you were in good shape before your pregnancy. I agree. Way to go!

Well, ladies, Adam currently weighs, according to ultra sound a healthy 5.7 pounds. I went to my appointment this morning at 8AM . Doc says therez no change in cervix, still 50% effaced and closed... Thank goodness. I gained 2 lbs in two weeks which is normal... Adam is apparently coming in at 36 weeks gestation, so he's a bit large. We're already calling him Chunky Monkey.

Talk at ya later!

Ummmm, Christina, getting dinner out of the oven is not considered bed rest, ya know. :LOL I got in trouble for vaccuuming today. DH came home and said, "Why do I see vaccuum cleaner tracks on the floor?"

He told me to try and leave it for him....

Hello all-
GoodWillHunter, you really rock taking time to personally acknowledge all of us. I love reading all you write except that often you make me laugh so hard I gotta pee!!!!!!!!!!1

so, I have had 3 completely *non-medical* pregnancies, so forgive my sounding stupid but what is this group b stepp test everyone is having and why so late in pregnancy??

Oh we had an appointment with mw today and the kids got to watch a video of some births. I have been trying to prepare them but did not know if I was doing enough. DD watched but DS just wanted to play. We were at MWs house and her 2 sons were home and my ds is CRAZY about big boys who will give him even the slightest bit of attention. He is the one who I worry about more with the birth, he is such a mommies boy ( and I mean that with lots of love and respect) that I worry about how he will react when he sees blood and other stuff coming out of me. I guess all I can do is keep talking to him about it.
good news is that my fundus height is more in line with my *due date*. i am now 36cm at 37 weeks, yippie!!!! I have been on a high protien diet for a few weeks and it is paying off.

Christymama- what grade is your dd in? It sounds like she is doing great at school, you should be proud!!! Isn't it nice to have kids who enjoy learning!!

That is all for tonite- hang tight everyone, it is not even April yet!!!!--

love2all, Group B strep is an infection that can pass to the baby during a vaginal birth. Mom is treated with antibiotics to prevent the infection. Piece of cake. Not really, but, hey, it sounded good.

DS3 is walking around with a blanket over his head. He should be asleep, but he drank half of my Dr. Pepper earlier. Oh, well, guess he'll party with the rest of us for a while.

Love2all~ my dd is in the 2nd grade. She will be 8 in june.. I can not believe how time has flown by! Yes it is wonderful that she loves to learn! The only thing that sucks here is that they dont have a gifted and talented program until the 4th grade and the 4th grade is middle school here: So she has been getting bored in class and the teachers all try and keep her intrested in things.. Like her spelling list is at 4th grade level now and so is her reading. So she isnt even with the class on them things.. Math is does really well in but she would rather read! BUt yes I am very proud of her! She gets her smarts from her daddy!
My dh put in his vacation for when the baby comes.. He is taken the 10-25th off.. Then another week in June for my and dd#1 birthdays! His is all paid too.. which is nice!
Being in the sun the past few days have worn me out.. I get to sleep and wake up like 2 hours later feeling like i have slept all night! So then its hard to get to sleep.. I guess its our bodies way of letting us know right now we better get use to less sleep because when baby gets here we wont be having much of it!
Well See all ya mama's later!!!

Hey, Christy, that's great about your DD... My DS1 is like that. He took the test for GT and they told me he wasn't creative enough... Yeah, right. They just don't know him very well, do they?

I'm going to be doing some illicit house cleaning today. DH won't dust. I have no clue why, but he won't. Sigh. What a dweeb.

So, off I go to be BAD!

I'm going to hell. Or the hospital, either one is fine with me. At least my house will be clean!!!!!!
