I am praying for a Feb. baby, so hopefully this little babe will cooperate with us...we'll see.
We still don't have a boy name at all.
A doula who married a cop & became a mama to 3 boys: G 12/22/00, my rainbow baby B 2/2/07 and L 2/10/10 my CBA2V baby, waiting for my little caboose late February 2013 & always remembering my two angels 2006 & 2012.
Happily married, busy mom to a houseful :-)
Expecting again early Oct 2014!
Anyway - it's close but not close as everyday feels like 30 years.
Amy - Blessed wife to Jesse (the best dad in the world), mother of 10 on earth plus 8 in heaven. PROUD to be a Catholic! :
I've got the clothes washed and diapers washed too, all I need is to get the cosleeper up in our room. But if need be, DH could always do that after the birth, we've got plenty of sleeping spots that we wouldn't need it set up immediately anyway. I should probably clean up the car seat though. I think that's really all I have left to do.
I would be fine with the baby coming now (except that I'm not at all caught up at work!), but it really would be better if his class was over.
I definitely don't feel birth is imminent. I had some contractions over the weekend, but nothing timeable. It did make me feel like my body was doing something. Hooray for subtle labor signs!
Mama to my beautiful Ana Carolina (2/07), Isabel Cristina (6/10), and #3 on the way in August 2013!
My doc laughed when I said 3 weeks. He said, "now you're being greedy" He's just happy I've almost made it to 36 wks. I don;t care what he thinks, I have stuff to do and they don't 'feel' cooked yet. My 40 weeks aren;t up until the 28th, so there's just no hurry.
Besides, I keep getting all this baby stuff that has to be washed. I'm drowning in laundry and they aren;t even here yet. Why do peole give so many clothes? How about some toys or anything else? :
My midwife also said the baby has definetly engaged, is very low, and my cervix (as of last week) was dialated a fingertip. YAY!!!! I'm all of a sudden starving and I have had menstrual-like cramps over the past three days. I have suspicion that I will not make it to my due date. But whenever she comes, must be the right time.
and i have a batch of chocolate cookies on the stove cooling!
what else could you need?
(actually i have cooking to do this weekend, so another week would be great really)
