i am still here. went for a walk last night and was really crampy and kept having sharp pains in my pubic bone. when I went to bed my right leg was killing me. Every time I wake up to pee its because I am having a really strong braxton hicks. my pelvic girdle and lower back is killing me but I dont think this baby is coming out. I have totally lost my zen and just want to sit down and bawl. grrr

tomorrow is my due date and i keep telling this baby to just come already.

the calls have begun. my mil is calling every day and my aunt calls just to see how i am. well how do you think i am? i am uncomfortable. i am not a turkey cooking that they have to keep checking on. it pisses me off.

i also was complaining that i really would like my bedroom back but know i will cosleep with this baby so i can't do anything about it. well she still cosleeps with her sonwho is 12 and daughter who is 11. so of course she thinks i am jumping the gun. i already said i wasn't moving dd out just that i really would like my room back. anyway it rubbed me the wrong.

Angela, your Zen-ness inspires me.

39w today. Still no sign of anything close to a baby. I lost 4 fundal cm, though, so baby is WAY down in my pelvis. Now we just need to get him/her out!

I've been cleaning, but what's really bugging me is the stairs. We have a black cat who likes to play on the stairs and off-white carpeting. Needless to say, it looks AWFUL. There's no way I can balance the vacuum AND vacuum the stairs, so I have to leave it for DH - who KNOWS when that'll get done. :

It's a beautiful day out, but surprisingly cool for May. I think I'm going to take the dog and get a milkshake.

Thanks... it's more just zen because lying on the floor having a temper tantrum doesn't do much good...

Forget zen. I'm freaking depressed. I keep breaking out crying. Today's my EDD and I never in a million years thought I'd still be here this far along. I keep thinking "what if my baby doesn't want me anymore?" - silly, I know, totally not logical. But it's been such an emotionally rocky pregnancy, with a lot of me being pissed off about being pregnant in the first place, and I'm feeling totally racked with guilt and . . . arghhhh!

Anyway. Labour vibes to all. I'm going to go crawl under a rock or something.

Still here too. 3 1/2 hours of GIO last night didn't even help. Not even with a nice natural shot of oxytocin. Guess baby isn't done cooking yet.

DD's preschool class took a vote today. 10 out of 12 of these 3 to 5 year olds think I'm having a boy.

I'm due Wednesday. I'm as ready as I think I'm going to get.

Dinner time! Spaghetti at my house! It's kosher and vegetarian (though not vegan - we've got pasta, of course), so everyone is welcome. It's also LOADED with basil. Lots and lots of basil.

Good morning all.

Well, bloody show again this morning. Of course, since I had it 2 weeks ago, I'm really trying not to get my hopes up . . . I'm slightly crampy. Today, both of my doulas are available! So . . . it could be a really good day.

I STTN last night. Bizarre. Today is a nice, cool day and NOTHING is going on. I made it through the big service I had yesterday. I'm still banking on MW thinking I won't be pg through the weekend.

Happy Memorial Day to us?

Still here, due in four days. At my next appt (my due date) my doc is going to strip my membranes and if I go to 41 wks they are going to want to section me again.

I've been eating so much pineapple, basil, spicy food and taking epo that I'm sick of it all. Why can't ice cream be a labor stimulator??

We've been DTD, acupressure w/ my chiro and I'm off to the zoo today to do another round of laps.

Having contractions, strong then always slacking off.

Trying to stay zen with the big clock ticking away over my head.

Me too, the clock is the same for both of us.

We dtd last night and while I had a lot of intense cramping, it never went beyond that. We also went to a party at Pump It Up (indoor gigantic blow up house thingy's) and I bounced around for awhile, it was fun but exhausting. Didn't seem to do much either so I guess it's really not my time.

I'm doing ok good with the Zen, just going along with the day and enjoying the last few days with just 2 boys. We had a nice lazy, snuggly morning watching daddy do some projets around the house. We have other projects to do this weekend but aren't putting any pressure on ourselves to get them all done. What gets done will get done and what doesn't can wait.

DH and I are going out tonight for date night, I'm looking forward to that.

My boys are so cute. My 5 year old loves to put his hand on my belly when I"m putting him to bed and feel the baby move. He's nicknamed him 'Leo' and last night he said "Hi, my sweet Leo. I can't wait to meet you" Today my 2 year old said "Come out play baby" How cute is that?

Yep..and with all this cramping I wonder how close I'm going to cut it...seriously. I don't think anything is going to happen 'soon' but I wonder how close to Wednesday I'll get.

It's funny ever since I found out I was pg and did my own math, I thought today would be 'my' day. Since it's already 9:30 here, unless something happens pretty darn quick..I don't think it is! That's ok though, I'm happy for all the other mamas who had their little ones today. I still have tomorrow....
