I feel like I'm "coasting." 13 days for until I hit 40 weeks.
I do feel tightening and something a little extra now & again--like a sharp pain up inside. But, other than that, I still forget that I'm pregnant unless I look in the mirror or feel the baby move or sit down (when I feel my belly).
I just went to my reminder sheet to see if I need to update it...
For some reason, I'm not at all motivated to do the perineal massage. Does anybody have words of wisdom to inspire me to do this?
And, I find myself seldomly doing kegels. Any inspiration there?
I still haven't gotten in the exercise groove either. I find myself doing stuff around the house, but that's it. Is anybody else working out?

We had a realtor at our place yesterday so we could get a listing! It looks like I won't be in my hometown forever!
Dh is considering Vet School for fall '05 at UC Davis, as he wants to specialize in holistic equine care. So, maybe I'll be a West Coast girl sometime in the next few months (keep your fingers crossed that somebody will buy our home within the next few months).
Then, maybe I'll get to bond with other AP moms! and dd will have playgroups!
