Yay I was just thinking about how few early babies we have, but they should start coming every day now!

I am personally really excited that my due date was officially moved to March. My OB had me at April 1st, but I knew that I should be earlier. After a bleeding/early labor scare, I asked my midwife to recheck my dates. I was really worried that if I did go early, my baby would be unnecessarily separated from me. So she checked my early ultrasound and changed my EDD to March 28th. Not a huge jump, but it means that I only have to hold this baby in for seven more days until my birth is considered non-emergency by the hospital.

Also, she checked me due to the scare and I am 2cm. I know that doesn't mean anything, but I having a hard time not thinking I will go early I was 3 1/2 when I got to the hospital and had my son four housrs later.

My pregnancy ticker on my livejournal says I have 6 days left! Crazy! I don't expect to have a baby by my due date, but still crazy that it's so close!

As I was putting clothes in the dryer this morning the thought "Holy Cow it's March 1st!" sprang into my head. I can't believe it.

I was officially full term yesterday (37w) and I couldn't believe it! I'm really excited to make it to March! DS was 2 weeks old at this point and we already had one ptl scare, but I don't think this babe is coming any time too soon! I did go ahead and install the carseat yesterday, though I don't know why, I guess more to see how they would both fit and to remind myself of how to install the infant seat. And I guess cause I'm really anxious to meet this little one!

me, wife to dh, the movie geek (7/01), mama to ds1, budding Star Wars geek (10/05), dd, budding princess of the dirt (03/08) and ds2, budding extrovert. watch out! (8/10).

YAY! I'm 37 weeks now, too. So, anytime in the next couple of weeks would be just dandy. I may not be completely ready but I don't even care. I want to hold my baby. And I want to stop contracting all day and all night, every day and every night. That's going to be so nice.
Maybe I'll have dh clean the car. Last time I had a baby, dh cleaned all the toys and crayons and school papers out of the car, vacuumed and washed it, and I went into labor the next day.
Oh, and the heating guy is coming to work on our tankless hot water system. If he fixes it so I can take a hot bath, I am going to be sooooo happy! I will take 3 baths a day til the baby gets here, for sure. (only option up til now has been a lukewarm bath, o boiling water on the stove to add to the bathtub.)

It's my due date!!! No real progress on labor though. (TMI?) DH and I DTD on Thursday and I got some really good contractions Thurs night and Fri - but everything's calmed down now. (He's not feeling well, otherwise I'd follow through with that strategy a bit more today.) I'm so ready to meet this little person.

I'm ready, but baby isn't quite yet. Though this thread reminded me I do still need to get the car seat from storage, at least give the cover a wash...

We cleaned out our car this week and I just got dh to get the carseat down from the attic today! Had some definite cx's in Target today, which made me realize that this could actually happen any time! I think it was just prodromal/positioning work, though, as they seem to have subsided.

I can't believe it's March! I'm 38w tomorrow. Where did the last 38w go??? Seems like we were just setting up this DDC

I just remembered I need to put the new parts in our britax seat.:

Other than that, I am ready. I am so sore and achey down there and now have trouble getting the pee OUT when I need to pee all day!

But the other night I tossed and turned dreaming of my 3rd c section. I don't want to be stressed about it.

And I forgot last week to schedule my OB appt for this week So now I need to call in, tell them that, and after I get over the embarrassment, ask when I can come in to sign release forms and talk about uber important details!

I am a train wreck if I think too hard about all this!

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