Jokerama, I'm sorry to hear about your grandmother.

I'm sick today. I started getting a head cold last Wednesday, and it's still here! In fact, I think it's a little worse every day now. I'm hoping this is a case of it getting worse before it gets better, and that tomorrow or the next day I'll be ok. I can barely breathe right now, and my nose keeps bleeding because I have to blow it so much. :

dh is going away for a conference this w/end, thurs-sun. Apart from being vaguely anxious (but not really) that I'll have the baby early (I'm 35 wks), am not looking forward to wrangling a toddler by myself all weekend.

I also think I have a UTI (the first I've had in my life) . Not sure what the heck is going on with my body--I'm taking so many probiotics, but there's obviously a bacterial issue down there... Just cured a case of BV with garlic, but I think it's migrated. Gah.

In better news, I think I have all my HB supplies. Found a pool hose at Big Lots for $6 yesterday (was looking at $30+ everywhere else)--yeah!
awww. Take some Alacer Emergen-C packets, the cranberry kind. They really help with UTI's somehow.


Anybody else secretly hoping labor will start with the full moon/eclipse that is coming?

Due with number 5 in August. We do all that crunchy stuff.

I'm not too awfully achy, except in the evening. Then it catches up with me. I do have this one persistent ache in my mid back, right around bra strap level. It's not really bad, just always there and annoying. I think I must be sitting strangely to accommodate my tummy or something.

I love Zantac. Without it my reflux would be driving me nuts.

Right now I'm working on the sewing projects for the "baby's room" I'm making a crib dust ruffle, curtains, and changing table pad cover. Wednesday, on the way home from my 37 (OMG I'm 37 wks!!!!) week appt, I'm stopping by the fabric store to buy more fabric in order to make a ring sling.

I'm kinda starting to panic that this little one will come before I have everything ready. But I'm really looking forward to meeting her too.

Oh yea, and I have between now and Sunday to convince DH that we really do need to go to the 2 or 3 more Bradley classes we'll have before the due date. It's not that he's un-supportive, it's that the instructors are. . .kind of idiots. They know what they're talking about, they just . . .lack interpersonal skills in a big way. I mean last week the husband actually asked the sister of one of the other mom's what clothing size she wore during class. It was the first day he'd ever met her.

My favorite thing about them though is DH's nickname for the wife. It's Orgas-mo because during the 1st class she described, in detail, how she lost the ability to orgasm after the birth of her first child due to damage to the PC (Kegel) muscle, how that affected her relationship with er husband and how, in graphic detail, she needed her husband's help to learn to exercise it. That was a level of TMI my somewhat shy DH was just not prepared for.

Kristy, wife to Josh proud mama to Katie: since 3/08 and Emma since 8/12.

I am working FT (from home since the bedrest) going to school FT this term to get as many classes completed before the baby is born (I am about 9 classes away from comps, then starts the dissertation) and trying to stay awake long enough to have a coherent conversation!

It seems like every time I start to drift off someone calls or there is some fire I need to put out. I completely sympathize and can't imagine doing all this while already taking care of a LO!

Hang in there! :

I am hanging in there. I got my first "you look like you are about to pop" comment today. ER, no, I have 7 weeks left!

What is new is the pain in my hips. Sounds like I am not alone there. I have to sit/lie down ever so carefully.

DS has been getting over being sick and is feeling better but his sleep schedule is really screwy. NO NAP yesterday and looking like today too. But that means he will go to bed very early and maybe I will get some more work done around the house. Today he also has a rash and I am worried about that, not sure what is going on there. I am just monitoring it at this point to see if it is going to fade or get worse.

I do have more energy these days and have been I suppose nesting. Cleaning like crazy around every corner and behind all the furniture!

Jokerama, so sorry about your grandmother.

Hey me too. It's driving me nuts!

Jokerama, I am so sorry to hear about your Grandma.
Kim, I'm sorry about your eviction notice. I hope you get something worked out, fast.

I'm totally a member of the achy club.. Ow. My. HIPS. Getting into the driver's side of the minivan was just about killing me today. For some reason, lifting my right leg up causes excurciating pain.

In a bad mood about hospital billing and insurance. Grrr. Our new health plan has been denying my claims for my visits to my grief counselor since October. Wouldn't it have been nice for them to tell me -- like, in October?

It's freezing here. Around 10-12 degrees. :

My DS turned 4 this weekend; that was fun! He's so proud of himself.

I have been nesting on and off, when I don't feel too contract-y. My nesting is paying off, as I keep putting things on ebay. Like, all that cute maternity clothing that doesn't fit me any more. HA HA!

ANyone else down to about 2 outfits that cover the belly and/or don't show your crack?

Jokerama, so sorry about your loss and Kim hang in there with everything going on. It sounds like there are a lot of mammas out there with lots on their plate.

I visited the MW today and it was all good. I guess I'm getting a little more achy and tired too, but nothing terrible. Just regular pregnancy stuff. Tomorrow is my Monday and I'm not really looking forward to getting into my work week... It will go fast though, I'm trying to get a ton done before DS makes his appearance!

Take care ladies and have a great evening!

I am 38 weeks on Friday. My husband and I have been bickering for about a week straight. I swear my daughter feels the vibes becuase she has been a handful, which only makes everything worse.
I am anxious, and the weather is so yucky, who wants to go do anything. Plus once you do it, is it as great as you would have hoped? YOu are huffing and puffing and tired. So forget it, I will stay home and complain more, ha ha!

I can't wait to go back to the doc, last week I was 2cm, 80% effaced.

Hey, thanks for writing my post for me, Katherine!
You just have to exchange "10-12 degrees" for "4-6 degrees"; the HIGH here yesterday was -2. That is not a typo...

Also, we finally got the crib put together and sidecar-ed, and today I did my first ever load of baby laundry!

s again to Jokerama and wowbaby42

ETA: beautiful pics, Allison!

After bath tonight I put on a shirt that has fit me till the end in my last two pregnancies. I wore it last week and had inches left. Well tonight it is so tight around my belly. Uncomfortable!!!! And my feet are swelling.

But I washed a ton of stuff today. Well mostly diapers. Unbleached prefolds are taking forever.

Lilkat: Thanks. It was so much fun taking the pictures.

Allison wife and mom to four.

I just wanted to say I hope you have already contacted a housing advocate. I am pretty sure that can't be legal in any state. Good luck and I hope you can work it out.

Jokermama, s wishing you healing in coming to terms with your gandmother's passing

This baby has no room left, I swear! He presses so hard sometimes against the fron of my belly, and there is a patch of sensitive skin or something, that literally HURTS as he presses on it. It is above my belly button, just on the right.
We picked up our raw milk from the co-op last night and all the way home I kept a bottle of it on my belly. Relief! He finally moved several hours later. I don't know if it's when he sticks his bum there, or a knee, or what.......

Due with number 5 in August. We do all that crunchy stuff.
