I dreamed last night I gave birth to 5 kids...yea, i don;t think so!

Went to my appointment this morning

They did a non stress test today, baby passed.

Last week I was down 1 pound for a total of 19 pounds gained over all...still the same at 19 total gained.

She sweeped my membranes again, we'll see if it does anything this time. My appointment on Thursday yeilded nothing, so we'll see... It was more pressure than last time and I've had more bleeding afterwards this time.

I'm still at 4 cent and as ripe and soft as I can get without actually being in labor.

I have another appointment on Thursday. I'll get a quick ultrasound, just to check fluid levels and everything then another non stress test.

Baby will definitly be here on Tuesday. I have an induction scheduled at the hospital for Tuesday morning. I'm going in at 7am. She'll start by breaking my water, then see if that sets me into labor. If not she'll start a slow pitocin drip to start labor.

So his eviction is set now wether he likes it or not.

: Mother (4/11/06) to Josephine and (4/23/09) to Oliver and baby (due June 1st)

Babies: Angel (6/29/02), Tiberius (3/8/11), Lillianna (12/27/11)

I know I shouldn't say this, but it would be SO awesome to have my water just break. At least I'd know that this really is it. It's not going to fade away, change, whatever. I would know in the next couple days, I would be holding my new baby in my arms. It could even break right here at work, that'd be fine with me. (My boss would freak! She's not a mom type.)

.I too wish my water would break. This is how it happened with DD and I knew imeidatly and 4 hours later she was here....why can't it just happen on demand???
I don't know, you guys... my water has officially been gushing out since 10:45 this morning. It's now 5:20 pm and I've had maybe two feelings that if I concentrated really hard I could notice and could possibly call a contraction.

I had pineapple about an hour ago and meanwhile I'm just listening to DH fret about whether or not to call the birth center to give them a heads up. (I say no: water breaking "starts the clock" and I don't want to end up transferring to the hospital if I don't need to!)

I'm still giving my DP crap about rushing to call my CNM the first time I went into labor 6 years ago. Then he rushed me into leaving my warm and comfy bathtub so that I could labor for nine hours in a frigid hospital room with little privacy. : I'll never be rushed again.

It's so weird with water-breaking. I feel like you just don't know if something serious is going on silently, or if you should just sit tight. I agree that being in the hospital too soon would suck.

Question about heart rate. Is it a cause to be concerened when the babies heart rate is at 128 and mine in the low 100? This morning I had a MW appointment and the doppler said 128 mine in the 100s then again at 98. I've been resting for 40 mins now and my heart rate is 112. I've been trying to get and keep my heart rate down! To no avail. I'm worried. At one time today, I believe my heart rate was so high that I was starting to go numb in the ears. I was begining to tune out, like the vision dimming and my hearing was not all there. What is really strange is that my blood pressure was good, forget but I do remember a comment saying it was nice healthy blood pressure.

Anyone ever experience this?

Writing down "contractions" again. Apparently, nighttime is popular with the goo-goo.

I'm just not in the mood to worry about someone else's comfort or make conversation. At least I can escape to work.
Oh great fun. I hope you are able to escape some.

to all the inlaws people

Nancy - Yay for fake ctx, at least something is going on!!!

I bought a bathing suit today, the top is maternity, the bottoms normal. I didnt think it was a waste of money cause its SO hot here and its a tankini top so I can use it all summer!

Rode my bike, PURPOSELY, up 2 hills near me and nothing, no ctx, no peeing myself, I wasnt even out of breath! I may be more fit now than when Im not preg!!

Did some cleaning and organizing and dd went to bed on her own at 815! She also made the CUTEST thing for the 2 mws and her teacher. She took mason jars and divided up a huge bag of m&ms and color-layered them in the jars. THEN she attached a tag she made to her teachers with pretty yarn and it said "To the best teacher ever" This was all unprompted!!!!I feel like the luckiest mom tonight!

actually, Im noticing there are crickets all over the house, I think DH left the cricket box open again.: maybe not the LUCKIEST, but close!

Do you have lizards? Can you let them loose to deal with the crickets?
