Hi, I can't get over how I am 36wks. already...BLAMO it just happened! Yet it is now going so slow...I am very anxious to have this pg over with! It was an unplanned yet pleasant surprise but I have been perpetually pg for 3yrs. straight!! I am nervous about having a 16mo. old and a newborn but it'll be fine...we'll manage. I know SO much more this time around than I did with our first.

I am SO uncomfortable. I shouldn't have done it but at my 36wk. appt. last Friday I had my OB check to see if I was dilated b/c I have been having some pretty harsh contractions, some BHX, some all over. Yet nothing was happening...sigh. I am now feeling VERY menstraul, like I am getting my period or something. I did demand the GBS test b/c I did have it with my first child yet I don't want IV antibiotics if I don't have too. We'll find out if I got it or not this Friday at my 37wk. appt. I sure hope I don't.

There is so much I should be doing to prepare for this new arrival but I have SO little energy especially with a 15mo. old at home. I know, I know...

At least I can see the light at the end of the tunnel now (or so I tell myself). In a matter of weeks it WILL be over with!!

Take care all...

I know what you mean! I can't believe I am 36 weeks~ I swear I just found out I was pg! :LOL Besides the sore hips, I feel great! Much better than last time! I have to go pick out paint today so DH can paint the nursery this week. And I need to get a few more things for baby (co-sleeper, sposies for first few weeks, etc.) and myself (post-partum supplies). I cannot wait to have this baby. We are having ALL of my greandpa's 6 siblings & their spouses visit the area in early May for my grandparent's 50th wedding anniversary (May 14) & I would if they could all see the baby! I am starting to get impatient!

I can't believe it either!!! I feel pretty good as far as pregnancy goes. I have the hurting hips but that is about it. No swelling or anything like that - YET!!!
I am ready and I am not. It seems like the weeks are flying by ever so quickly. My horomones have been raging off and on like crazy and making me seem like a nut case but I keep telling myself this is just part of it. Hopefully, DH can keep telling himself that too and he won't want a divorce in the next few weeks!! We have everything we need and all I need to do is get some stuff organized.

My bestest friend bought me an electric breast pump and I am so excited about it!! She's awesome!!!

Woo hoo for 36 weeks!

My birth tub was delivered today and is making a horrid screeching sound as it heats up the water. I'm going to have to check about that.... But seeing it here in my bay window of my living room makes me realize how close everything is getting. Wow.

Sounds like I am not the only one suffering through hip pain. I was doing well until last weekend, when suddenly it started feeling like I was about to snap in half and become paralyzed!

Here's to no more crazy discomfort...
