Ok, so just one, but still ... if that isn't enough to make you feel like things are getting close, I don't know what is.

(Of course, I may well have a June baby, but that's something I'd rather not think about.)

Wow, I hadn't seen that yet! I still felt like our ddc babies were early, I know there are April ddc mamas still waiting to have their babies. Yep, I think in the next couple weeks we'll be seeing lots of birth stories and announcements!

Which does, of course, make sense, since we're not quite halfway through April

You know I am actually very shocked that there were no micropreemies in this ddc. It is actually very good all things considering.

I know, this is nuts! We still have 2 weeks of April left!

As I was puking in my OB's trash can today:, she said, "You're almost done. Just 6 weeks to go..." :

I had an appointment today. We're just trying to get me to 36 weeks, which is two and half weeks away. That is my target and I feel like my body is prepping for that week. I measured 44 weeks today. At my last appointment, which was three weeks ago, I measured 39 weeks. The crazy thing is I did not gain any weight.

Before I left my midwife tells me to start preparing myself for the possibility of going to my due date or very close to it. She says she has had someone go to 40 weeks with twins and that it could happen. Plus, my last two babies went over 41 weeks.

The thought is just not something I want to begin to accept with the way that a feel. Another six weeks of this?!?! I'd be happy with 38 weeks honestly, but anything over that and I KNOW I will be going crazy. What if I end up with June babies?!?!

This is totally me and I'm being induced in two weeks. EEEEEEEPPPP!

I go between total denial to "I can't believe we'll be holding our baby in two weeks! WOOT!" Mostly the first b/c this pregnancy has absolutely flown and 2 weeks from now seems way too soon since I'm only like a few months pregnant in my mind!

ROTFL ROTFL This is SO me right now.

Last night, when I'm moaning about my swollen feet, my husband says "Well, at least you only have four weeks to go."

I nearly panicked "No! I'm going to go two weeks overdue, I know it! Six weeks! I have six weeks, over a month!"

This is me too...

Does anyone else feel like they're in one of those dreams where you are trying to run, but can only run in slow motion? That's how I feel when I look at my to-do list. Every morning I start out with 3 or 4 big things to do, and by noon I'm lucky if I've accomplished one or two things, and am too worn out to do anything else other than occupying my 3-yr-old. And lately "occupying my 3-yr-old" often entails popping in a DVD so that I can rest.

Freedom is slavery.

That's a great description. I have all sorts of grand ambitions, and some days I get a lot done, but other days I just sort of zone in front of the computer and then get stressed out and mad at myself because I get nothing done.

Not sure I really want to admit how much time my kids have spent watching pbs kids go lately.
My energy is coming, right? Of course, then I'll probably let them stay on the computer while I scrub my bathroom.
I hope my MIL comes back soon!

Uh, I hear that... my son wakes up and is like, "Elmo?". That SO needs to stop once this baby is born, but I feel like I"m walking in a fog AND I'm trying to pack my house for our move THREE WEEKS after this baby is due to be born. My mind reels.
