I'm only just over 34 weeks, so I've got quite a lot of time left. My comfort level with UCing is 36 weeks, but I don't expect to go until 40+ weeks. I'm ready to be done though.

I'm 34 1/2 weeks right now so still have to get to 37 before I'm considered term and eligible for my home birth. I'm more worried about going overdue than I am about going early though!

Engineering Mama ~ I hear ya about the curtains, I have to get some up in my living room too! Right now we only have a portion of the window covered and I really don't want to feel I can't walk around naked in labor without having the whole neighbourhood talking.

We moved in our house in June and don't have curtains up yet either. We seriously need them. They have been purchased, and some are getting made by MIL, but we don't have hardware yet. One more thing to do...

We've been here over a year and only just put up curtains about two weeks ago, but we're on the third floor and we face a secluded courtyard so it's not a huge deal. It was just ugly!

I hit 37 weeks today! I am nowhere near ready though. I was having some contrax last night and a few today though. Baby started to drop lower last week and my hips pop if I am not very careful when I roll over so I know he is low.

I think we're on the same schedule! Could we be UCing at the same time? :

I'm only 33 w 2d, so I still have a while. Although my home visit is in 2 weeks, and we'll be cleared for HB at 36 w (8-31). I can't believe how quickly the time has flown by!

I'm so glad I'm not the only one with curtain issues. We actually have the curtains and the hardware...just can't convince DH that putting them up is a priority. I love him dearly but the man is the ultimate procrastinator. I think he's figured it out since I had a meltdown about it last week.

Good luck to everyone heading into this last month. Happy birthing vibes to one and all.

I have a curtains issue too! Have them but keep forgetting to buy the hardware. Our big front window really needs to be covered up.

I'm jealous! I'm only 33 weeks but I'm more than ready to be 36-37 so we can start seeing some "action".

I will be 37 on Sunday. My midwife said yesterday that with the feeling size of the little bub that she would be comfortable with delivering at anytime, Though I have a feeling it will be a little while before he wants to make an appearance.
he's way to happy pushing his big bum up into my ribcage.

I'll be at 37 weeks in two weeks. I have a feeling she'll come a little later than 40 weeks.
I can wait; I still have to wash all of her clothes, get a car seat, crib, and everything else a baby needs! Yikes!

I sooooo relate to this. I'm 37 weeks on Thursday and what does dh want to do?

Build a picnic table and sanitize the pop-up camper that we got on freecycle last month.

I had a MAJOR meltdown last week (the week before?) about it. I think he finally "got it" that clean diapers and the birth tub are more important to me than a picnic table at this point in time...

...yea, I'm hormonal!...

I'll be 38 weeks on Monday. DD was born on her due date, so I'm hoping for right around 40 wks or a little after for this one. We are finishing our basement - and still have lots to do!! (And they're so much easier inside than out!)

Wow! You are really close--could be any day!!!... I hear you on "they're so much easier inside than out" This is our first, but that makes so much sense to me. I know how to take care of my pregnant body, and by extension this baby, but when it's on the outside, things are going to be a bit more complicated!!! 36 weeks on MOnday, cleared for homebirth then, expecting the baby 40-42 weeks....

I dunno. I'm really ready to find out what outside is like. Inside has gotten old!

I'm full term today!! Now if these contractions could make up their mind what they want to do, I'd be happy.

I've always thought that babies were easier outside than in, because I am not so exhausted and have better patience.
