But ds2 walked right up to her and said pointing "That looks like a ninja!" All I could think of saying was "I suppose she sort of does look a bit like one" and then I smiled at her. Sheesh. Kids say the darndest things! I say hello or good morning to her all the time now, so maybe it was an icebreaker, but goodness. I tried to explain how people wear different kinds of clothing around the world, but ds2 wasn't interested.

Ok... back to pregnancy talk now, lol.
hehe. Sounds like you handled it fine. At least he didn't say "mom, that lady's really fat." I always feel bad for the parents in that situation.

Thanks. Well, when I was pg with ds2, ds1 (who was also 3.5 at that point) and I sat across from a very large woman on the bus one day. Ds1 said VERY loudly pointing "Look mommy! She has a big baby in her tummy!" When I didn't answer because I think I was trying to pretend he didn't actually say that, he repeated it even louder. I felt sooo bad for the woman.

I guess it's that age... they're brutally honest. Like when I asked who made the big mess in the living room yesterday and ds2 answered enthusiastically "Me!"

And now they've started up again this morning. Luckly we just happen to have our MW appointment today. I'm wondering if its the crazy amount of beans I ate yesterday or did I over do it cleaning...or is this really the start of labour, just in a more mild way.

They feel like rolling waves of discomfort in a crampy way in my lower belly. Plus the baby has moved position somehow, so I'm not sure if its just a new uncomfortable position its found.

I'm 35 weeks today and SOOOO not ready for this baby to come. Because of our bedbugs I'm VERY behind with baby preparations and I NEED to get to 37 weeks to have my home birth...so 'stay in there little one'
Hang in there, Dawn. And come and join us in the prodromal labour support thread if you want.

lilgreen, we had a very similar experience when we lived in student housing. Our neighbour's son thought that the burka wearing women were ninjas, and my daughter thought that they were "dressed up like a ghost".

Well Ninjas are awesome, so that is kind of cool. I would love it if some kid walked up to me and said I looked like a ninja!

I went on a total nesting rampage today, y'all. I mean like 5+ hours straight of organizing, decluttering, moving stuff downstairs, loading my car up with Goodwill stuff, sorting clothes by child (Brynn, baby boy) and size/season, hanging pictures in Brynn's room, hanging a shelf in the bathroom, doing baby/homebirth laundry.... whew! : I just couldn't stop myself, but it feels SOOOO good to have it all done. I'm not sure I'll be able to *walk* tomorrow, but hey, you can't fight the nesting instinct.

Oh and I'm going to a consignment sale on Friday morning (I LOVE consignment sales!) so I hope to get a few more newborn/0-3 clothes and whatever else looks good!

[QUOTE=ShineliketheSon;13327155]Thanks for the advice about my acid reflux. I ended up drinking lots of water and working on the computer so I was upright for an hour then went back to bed with my pillows stacked up. It took a while to fall back asleep and it was hard to wake up with the hour change but I've been okay today. I've been eating small meals all day as we are supposed to do anyway. And drinking lots of water and not laying down after I eat. My throat already feels better.

I'll admit, I haven't read the whole chat thread, so someone else probably already posted this, but I get reflux/heartburn terribly bad throughout most of my pregnancy. It's definitely getting worse right now in these last weeks. For the first time I recently tried baking soda water and it really worked. For a while at least. 1 teaspoon dissolved on 6 oz or so of water. One night I drank it almost right before bed and it was enough to let me fall asleep. Another night it wore off before bed and I ended up with the Tums anyway. Tonight I had it before dinner. It seems to at least soothe and take the big edge off the acid. It kind of feels good to have the big burps that go along with it, rather than all the tiny burny ones that get stuck.

I remember so vividly having my son at the birth center and him being less than a couple of hours old and drinking Sprite LAYING DOWN and being so excited that all the heartburn was already instantly gone! Funny what we remember.

Well tomorrow morning DD and I will be off to the Capital building in Iowa to lobby for licensing Certifitied Professional Midwives. Please pray we have a good turn out and that I don't stumble over my words...we are soooo in need of more midwives in the area and especially to get someone to practice in the beautiful birth center just sittin empty here! I wish I would have been able to birth there, but hopefully all my efforts and the more efforts of others in Iowa other women will have the chance!

I love the name zavi. We are having a Zebadiah or a Zalya, so I am offically a z junkie. Xavier is latin. I'm bi-racial and as a result know tons of black people and not one of these are named Xavier. - Well, I do know a biracial guy named xavier, but his white mama named him this! I don't associate xavier with "black" at all. And just to be a brat to DH - many "Black" people have been naming their babies "white" names for quite a while! I think that Zavi is original and strong.

I had a scare today. I was standing in the kitchen and I felt a tearing pain on the left side by my scar. Then I kept feeling burning pain and some more tearing pains on an off for a bit. I called my OB and she sent me to the hospital for testing. The baby was fine, placenta is well attached and my scar area looks fine. I haven't felt the pain any more, so I am grateful. I missed my hair appt. for the third time and I felt like a dweeb for being so sensitive, but I'm happy I went or I'd be worrying right now. I had to swollow my pride and call my OB, better safe than sorry.

I have lost all ambition for nesting. I'm so jealous of *Amy*'s 5 hour nesting binge. Please send me some of those vibes!

That would have scared the crap out of me mama (as a previous c-sec) and I wouldn't have hesitated to call my MW. You did the right thing! I'm really glad everything turned out OK!!

I am 35 wks today!!!! I'm relieved to make it here. DS4 was born at 34 wks and was in the NICU for a week.I was told when he was born that if we had made it to 35 wks he probably wouldn't have been in the NICU for more than a day. Well now I am here and a weights been lifted.Just hoping this lo won't go as long as my older dds and will be here in 3 wks not 6!

I have to say this its March why the h*ll is it 0 degrees out! Come on Spring! We had a glimpse this past week w/temps in the 30s but now 0! I'm done.:

We had our last childbirth class tonight and I have been going through phases where I am scared to get it out to scared of actually having a baby to totally calm about everything! I think those videos are meant to scare you (last night we watched one on post partum). Overall it was a good movie with a good message though. I know I will be fine, but this is definitely an anxious time in our lives, isn't it?

And yeah Nancy, sometimes I just look down at the massiveness that has become my belly and I wonder how the heck I'm going to get this little guy out. Thankfully, I heard that I might feel that way at some point and its totally normal and we all do this, right??

I've definitely had my moments!! I'd say about 98% of the time, I feel confident (excited, even) and prepared, and then 2% of the time, I think, "Oh my god, I can't do that again!!" I guess one way or another, they are coming out!

Fairymom, congrats on making it to the 35 week milestone!

I'm just waiting for my MW and doula to get here for my home visit. The house is so clean and smells so good; I'm sure it won't stay this way for the next month, however! This morning, DH said, "I'm so excited for our homebirth, honey." It definitely put a smile on my face.

No going back now. DH asked, "Are you ready?" and I said, "Well I don't have a lot of choice in the matter anymore..." So very true. Baby will come, it's gonna hurt and be amazing and I'll feel like I can't do it and what was I thinking and oh my god and then he'll be here and I'll remember the power of women and our bodies and our capacity to bear what we need to in those painful, joyous moments of birth... there's nothing more awesome to me, in every sense of the word "awe."

One way or another, we're all going to go through that rite of passage, whether for the first or last time or something in between.

VERY well put Dawn!! As a friend's sister told me (which I think I've mentioned before) there is an end in sight and the baby will come out and then you will have this perfect little baby!!!!

Yep...the whole physiology of the birth thing is a little crazy. Let's take this big, big baby and shove it out into the world through this tiny, tiny opening. Eh? Great idea!! There's this little sculpture in the lobby at my bc that has a woman squatting to give birth and her belly has this giant, open circle. I always think...well if that's how our bodies worked none of us would be terribly worried! But it always heartens me to think that people willingly do this a second time and often more. Benefits must outweigh everything else.

I think I overdid it on the sewing, staying up late and caffeine yesterday. I haven't had coffee in a couple of weeks and I got a cup from a coffee drive thru in town b/c DH wanted me to pick one up for him and it smelled so good...bad idea. Couldn't sleep for hours and had terrible dreams and now I feel like poopy.

Just this week I've started to remamber the pain of childbirth- something I've never done in past pgs and find mysefl remembering ds4's birth more vividly and the pleasure of that last push to get him out and how good it felt to be done (he was born w/his hand IN his mouth) and that helps to push away the fear of the pain agian. My motto: walk through the fear, get through the pain and the end is bliss!

Where's Dawncayden?? How are you?? (you never know when someone goes missing for a few days, or even hours in this case, lol....)

Yay for being 35 wks, fairymom!! I too have been remembering the pain of childbirth, but also those last pushes felt so good that I look forward to it all - well, kind of.

Nancy, lol. I feel like that sometimes.

Kate - I hope your fingers become a little more responsive and you don't hurt yourself! careful! Ohhh.. I just saw your note about overdoing it. Rest up and take care!

mamamccloud - I like the way you think!

Thanks for the feedback on Zavi!

I had a lot of painful contractions last night and through the night. I kept thinking 'if the next one hurts more, I'm calling the m/w'. But they never really increased in intensity. I'd have one painful one, one plain ole bh, a semi-painful one, another plain bh, etc. Today they've been just mildly crampy and not quite so regular. Oh well, it's for the best since I have a paper to finish today and class this afternoon and ds1's parent-teacher appt.

Dawn posted on the prodromal labour thread last night after her appointment. She was still pregnant then

I'm going to be a practice pregnant woman for a group of nursing students learning abdominal palpation today. I had some students attending a parent-infant drop-in group that I facilitate, and when I told their instructor that I was going on maternity leave she got very excited. They're always looking for pregnant women to "practice" on. I hear they're also going to ask me lots of questions about what it's like to be pregnant, my birth plans, etc, so I think it's a good opportunity to be an example of plans for homebirth, etc.

I find Ina May's writing helpful for the fear of being big enough to get a baby out. Better than the "that's the downside of bipedalism, ladies" attitude that some other books have : I'm still in the excited place about labour and birth, but I had a pretty good experience last time, too. I remember how much transition sucked, but loved pushing and the rest wasn't too bad. Even at its worst, my plan was to labour another hour and then see about transferring for pain relief.

Oops sorry
dealing with major 3 year old meltdowns the last few days so I often have time to read updates from you guys but no time to write my own updates.

Yup, still pregnant. I haven't felt contrax like that since yesterday morning. I've cut out rr tea and am taking it easy.
MW says it 'could' be soon, but who knows, I could still be going to 42 weeks. I'd be happy to go to 42 weeks with the amount of stuff I still have to prepare

I'm only 34.5 weeks, so I shouldn't be close. I was late with both my other boys, too. Maybe I'm subconciously willing the contractions to happen, although consciously I realize that it would be best for the baby to stay in there for at least a few more weeks.

Dawn - thanks for the update! Three year old outbursts are the worst. They're too big to hold, too independent and stubborn to redirect. Plus with all the anticipated changes going on in their lives, I figure it makes their outbursts that much more intense.

my back is really hurting bad today. I took tomorrow off work but dh and I talked and I think I'm going to go out on short-term disability until the baby is born. Got a lot of mixed feelings bout it but I don't see that there's much choice in the matter, especially when a guy who got run over by a fork lift and went back to work unloading boats the next day says its time to give it up :

One of the twins is sick. We're going to keep him home with me tomorrow (and both of us go to the dr) and send the other twin to daycare. This should be interesting

Stay away from the shoulders got stuck stories nancy. or read up on the gaskin maneauvre so you know they can get unstuck

mum to Christopher (6/98) Elizabeth (2/05) twins Aaron and Dominic (7/10/06) and new baby Eden (4-18-09)

I'm sorry about your back and sick child.




I have one recovering child and one that is just getting sick. And I managed to get off the couch to catch up on laundry, dishes, etc.. today and now I'm paying for it. My foot is numb and swelling even more, oh joy.

There is no way to happiness, happiness is the way.
