I'm almost 36 weeks, still hoping for a dec baby, but I'd definately be ok if she decided to be a thanksgiving baby!

Jessica, mama to Emma, 7, Mattie, 5.5 and Lilly, 3 and someone new this Halloween-ish.
I'm SO not ready so I don't want the baby to come early ... none of my other five have come before 39 1/2 weeks so I'm thinking I'll be giving birth right around my due date. Here's hoping anyway.
Well I'll be 36 weeks on Thursday. I had DS at 37 weeks with preterm labor at 35 weeks. I've been having contractions now for two weeks, I was already 80% effaced and 1-2 cm at 33 weeks, so I'm "resting" now and just waiting for baby to come! I'm hoping to make it to Thanksgiving since I'll be 37 weeks that day. My DS was perfectly healthy and big, my midwife thinks I just cook babies faster than the average lady So you may be seeing my birth story soon, but hopefully not TOO soon!
Currently growing number two!
I found out today that my baby is in a good position!: After having an OP baby last time and this baby being in a funky position until now I was stressing about it. I couldn't be happier now!

I also figure that by keeping myself busy with fun projects that I keep the focus on obssessing about when the baby will come. With my 1st I quit work on my due date b/c I was sure she was coming within a day or two and it was such a mistake - I ended up bored at home for a whole week wasting maternity leave time and just totally focused on when I'd go into labor. Don't want to do that again It's a good time of year to keep busy.
Seriously I'd really love him to come before christmas. I hope he listens. I don't feel anywhere near labor right now.
I lurk on a rather mainstream bulleton board, and it's AMAZING the difference between how many early births there are on there compared to on here. Maybe there's more members, or maybe their cases aren't being managed as well.....
I was 37 weeks yesterday and I'm really hoping baby comes maybe a week early. I'm so done with being pregnant. I haven't been having any contractions, though, but I do have a "feeling" that babe will be early. I just can't imagine going past. I"m due December 8. I can definitely feel babe on my pelvic bones, it kind of hurts!

I would love for babe to come early (if he's ready!) but not next week, since my doula will be out of town.
