How y'all doing?
I thought for sure yesterday was the day for no known reason but I woke up this morning still pregnant I am now going to ignore that feeling if it comes again.
I am 38 weeks today.
Hope everyone is having a great weekend - we just had some fantastic oatmeal banana waffles with strawberries! :
I got all of my final lab work back last Tuesday and everything was perfect. No gbs, thank goodness! And she even said my iron was up from the last time, even though I haven't specifically tried to do anything for it (it was acceptable before). As a long term vegetarian and 6 year vegan, I always love hearing that my iron is good.
So, despite the discomforts of heartburn, restless sleep, being big, squished stomach, swelling feet, severe distraction at work, hot flashes, am I forgetting anything? I'm happy. Now that we are term, the baby could come any day, but I'm requesting either Father's Day or Solstice.
My last day of work is June 6th- that will be wonderful.
Thought things might have been getting started last night. Had pretty regular but very mild cx from about 9 until I went to sleep. Got woken up a couple times by stronger cx. But when I woke up this morning, saw it was light out and wasn't having any more cx, figured it was all just practice.
So I'm suffering from a cold, for the first time in well over a year. I was so happy to have avoided catching a cold throughout this pregnancy, when it seemed like everyone around me was getting sick, and here I am at 38 weeks, sick as a dog. I was hoping to have this baby ASAP, but now I'm grateful that she's staying put while I recover from this cold. I can't imagine dealing with labor while sick.
Ugh, and the pubic pain. My pubic bone is on fire!

Lots of BH but nothing more exciting then that.
I took a big fall yesterday after dd threw herself down in front of me in a tantrum at the park. While I was laying on the ground catching my breath all I could think is, oh thank god! Maybe this will put my into labor!

I am at school right now, on page 15 of a 20 page paper!!!!! I plan to finish up as much as I can today. My last day of work is also this friday and dh has his very last architectural licensing exam on Tuesday the 10th. I just walked to get some soft tacos and had some major electric zingers to the cervix! I am 37 weeks on Wednesday and so in my mind anytime after the 10th is good for me. I'd still love anothe cancer baby (silly, silly me) but a healthy term baby is way more important!!
Can't believe how close it is all getting.
Had a strange labor dream though, that was a trip. If kiddo decides to come in less than 5 minutes of labor though, I'm down with that. A girl can hope. Might freak out the hubby, but I don't really care at this point as long as kiddo comes out.
(If you're curious, 2003, 2006, 2008, 2010, and yes, it's a busy house)
Seriously? Two more weeks? He needs to be punished for even hinting it could be that much longer!!!!
It hit me walking down the stairs last night... June 1st... Due June 25th... thats 20 DAYS!!!
Like my math?? Thats what I thought!! I can do 20 days... I CAN'T do 30 days...
I'm SOOO excited I WILL have a April baby, a May baby and a JUNE baby...and in that age order!! LOLOLOLOLOL
Feeling good over here - I owe it to an awesome pre-natal yoga class and swimming (er, I mean, floating) in the pool for 2 hours yesterday.
My due date is June 30th and I really hope that I give birth on that day. I know it's so rare to give birth on your due date, but I really don't want to go early and don't want to go late either.
Wife, mom to DS (4), DD (2) and baby heart 2.7.13
I'm...moody, on most days, weepy on bad days. Everything annoys me. DH annoys me. DSS REALLY annoys me. I sleep ok 1 night out of 2, which isn't bad. I'm getting a bit bored with being at home, but at the same time, I can't imagine being anywhere else (or working still!). I've gone swimming a few times, which has relieved the back pain, and I try to do my Hypnobabies religiously.
I'm generally lonely since I have no super close friends in Montreal; if it wasn't for MDC, I'd go nuts!
I've resigned myself to the fact that baby is another month or more away, so if she does come early, it'll be a nice surprise!
Sending good vibes to everyone!

And I had a dream last night that we went to Vegas and I caught my DH cheating on me. What is up with that?
I'm 39 weeks tomorrow.
