...now if only I could sleep at night! *YAWN*
it seems that as soon as I it is bedtime I can't sleep, even though I have been a walking zombie all day.
hope life is treating everyone else well.
I'm due Aug. 26th, and next week I'm getting a pedicure, and the week after, a haircut and brow arch. Whoo!
Hopefully we'll be able to go out to eat one more time before we have a baby in the house, too.
My grandmother has been encouraging me and DP to DTD constantly to bring on labor. Between her and mother, they keep telling us to have more sex as if we're both not really tired in the evenings. DP is under a lot of stress at work right now and trying to get his staff together before I go into labor.
He finally took out his contacts last night and put on his glasses and I got so turned on. I have this thing for men in glasses. Yea, he will DEFINITELY get some tonight regardless of how tired we are.

oh yeah and today is my B-day so who knows what we will be doing today... maybe it will bring on some labor
I still haven't had any braxton hicks or anything just occasional period like cramps. Who knows when this girl is coming...
I feel like just going out and baby shopping, we really havent bought anything other than labor supplies, most of our friends are going to be handing down stuff and we still havent had a baby shower yet although two are planned in the next 3 weeks, right now from looking at the inside of our home you would have no idea that we are about to have a baby. Maybe thats why I want the crib so bad, at least that says "baby" since nothing else in my home does.

Pregnant again after IVF, EDD July 6, 2015!
I wonder if this "readiness" is what's contributing to the crazy amounts of contractions I've been having. Lots of tightening, twinges, crampiness, and two visits to the bathroom...gotta wonder. I don't want to get my hopes up, as my DD isn't til the 8th, but hey, you never know!
I had my 13 year old daughter ON my birthday, it is cool but not exactly what I wanted to be going through on that day
Well this morning I had my mw appt and she swept my membranes. That was slightly uncomfortable but it was okay. I am at a stretchy 4 she says and baby is still way down low.
That was about 3 hours ago and I've been having contractions since, but if any of you remember, I have been having contractions for almost 2 weeks. These feel "different" though, a little more intense and a lot more pressure.
I went to the bathroom and have some blood tinged mucous but I've been losing my plug for over a week and she just did that sweep so it probably isn't TOO indicitive of anything.
I'm hoping today/tomorrow is it. My due date is tuesday but I've been SOOOOO miserable with all this stupid contraction, crampy stuff and have been getting so little sleep that I just want her to come already.
I'm sick of being watched like a hawk by everyone, and everyone asking me if I've had this baby yet. NO STOP ASKING! Even people at DH's work are constantly asking him this every day that he goes into work.
So, contractions coming about every 10 minutes right now, I hope this is FINALLY it and not some more "false labor"
Good luck to everyone

|I still don't have the crib (which I was going to wait until a few months anyways) and now I feel unprepared because I dont have it even though we probably wont use it... Why is that?|
I bought bottles, nipples, formula, and soothers...
no idea why...none of the other three kids ever..
I've breastfed for over 5 years of my life....
I bought a crib set (with dust ruffle, bumper pads) for the first time in my life...its all set up although storing laundry I am going to use bassinette cribside until we figure out how this kids going to want to sleep...
I am exhausted.
I am going into labour tomorrow I keep telling myself so I want to sleep today, go out for nice dinner with dh and go for a long (as long as it takes walk) good news...he called now I have to pick the restaurant!
I have no idea of what restaurant to choose...
My dilation changed from this morning to this afternoon...
a good 1-2cm change for the better but it regressed from earlier on in the week...I was a solid four+ a day or so ago, this morning a solid 2+and more posterior...now this afternoon back to four...odd..
8 might be enough?
Or maybe 9 will be?
EDD September 18, 2015
I went to bed at noon because I was feeling a bit crampy and uncomfortable, and fall sleep! WOW THAT FELT SO GOOD! I am not sure how long I napped but woke up with hunger! Then I made myself some snapper fillets over spaghetti; went to the pool for a few minutes and started prepping dinner with my mom. I am having so much darn pressure in my vagina and rectum, and lower uterus. My tummy is been contracting all day but I haven't time them, nor do I want to do it. I am really trying to get on with my life and do everything like I normally do. They can be very painful but I am pretending that they are not happening
If I am still preggo tomorrow morning, I am going to go watch Orgasmic Birth at a birth center
: : : : : : :
Nothing major, just a bit but its encouraging! I don't think she'll be born in the next hour so I won't get my July baby but that's ok.
I told dh that I'd shoot for Satuday to maximize his days off.
