Well and I NEVER thought I'd even get CLOSE to the full moon and here I am praying we're one of those statistics (though the moon has NEVER been a birth factor with any of my other 3 childre).

I swear I'm going to name this child "Irony".

It's never worked in my other pg's either.

But, I figure if nothing else at least it gives dh his last chance since it won't be happening for awhile after the birth.

So an update from my earlier post.... I decided to walk today just for my own personal accomplishment. I made it a total of 6 miles! Not bad for being 39+1. If that doesn't trigger anything (and I'm pretty sure it didn't), this little guy is perfectly content where he is!

On another related note... do you think it's okay to ride a bike being this pregnant?

I'm good - better than yesterday. The day started off really stressful - bill paying day, finding charges on accts. that shouldn't be there:, etc. but I moved on.

I feel pretty good, getting things done. Found 1/100th of a piece of my plug I still need more time but finding that itsy bitsy piece motivated me to do a few things. I really can't keep him inside forever!

Just going to keep on trucking and hand over my to do lists to whomever comes by to help after the baby is born.

38 + 4

Nothing going on here - at least baby wise. For the past two nights, I've gotten intense lower back pain. Has this happened to anyone else. My back doesn't bother me during the day. But, it has been so bad the last 2 nights.

Our washer is finally fixed. WooHoo! I've been catching up on doing laundry and spent some time at the pool today.

Is it lower back pain w/ctx? Those are the only ctx I pay attention to - it usually means I'm birthing Since you aren't birthing yet - maybe it means you are going to birth at night or it could just be a pregnancy pain that happens when you sleep. I am no help

As an avid bike rider, my thoughts are this: if you've been riding all along, and are a strong rider, go ahead. Your baby is in a very vulnerable position if you were to crash or fall over or get hit, and since your center of gravity is way off, all those things are more likely.

I wouldn't ride in traffic and I wouldn't go fast. Last PG I rode a more upright style bike as my pregnancy advanced which was more comfortable. This time I didn't ride past the first trimester. I don't know why.

ETA: I would also avoid mountain biking and riding in groups. People always crash in groups...
