Michigan native living in Jersey with my hubby, sweet girl (4), wild boy (2), and baby girl due Dec. 18th!
I am definately feeling like this is the end but crazy to think that I could still be pregnant for another 6 weeks?? I HOPE not!!! Yikes!!!
And on the other hand, I will miss my belly. I love it sooooo much!!
And omg, I am hugely annoyed by anything and will cry at the drop of a hat. Just feeling so touchy these days!! I told my mom yesterday that if labor starts in the day, I am sending my dd and the dog to her house so I can labor in peace. Every little thing/sound BOTHERS me.
Have any of you tried Papaya Enzyme for your heartburn? This is the first pregnancy I've used it, and I have to say, it works really well for me. Just make sure you get a quality brand. The first bottle I had was, then my husband ran to Walmart to get some more, and they didn't work nearly as well.
jamie. crinkly (not quite crunchy) mama to 3 amazing little girls, an awesome little boy, and a baby girl making her debut at the end of this summer.
Boy / Girl Twins born 5/5/2010!!!
I did just have a serious spurt of nesting energy though. I have everything I need for labor and PP, except some lanolin, pretty much all laundry is clean, the walls and doors are scrubbed, the kitchen is as close to spotless as it can get, and I hung up our new message center. I also installed the car seats yesterday.
The birth tub also arrived today and is humming away in the family room.
Now I can relax and enjoy my mini nap (the insomnia is always present, so my naps are very short now), and the date night to follow.

Expecting #8 on Dec 6th, 2011
I really don't like eating these days with how low carb I have to be for the blood sugar numbers I need to stay low risk. It is bothering me so much. Between the heart burn and painful gas I hadly sleep. I was up at 3am last night in a warm bath just to get the pain to be a bit less.
I keep telling myself I can do this and that baby will run the house when she comes and who knows if sleep will be more or less and recovering from the birth might not be as easy as I think it will be and having to take special care of my female parts and what if breastfeeding does not go smoothly how much I might cry over that again (as I have my other babies) and for now I think I can more than do past my due date when I get to thinking this way. Not to mention I am simply not ready.
I feel for you though, not too much longer now and you will hold your sweet one!
I've been in denial I'm even pregnant to be honest. I feel so far behind. I'm 33.2 weeks and feeling more like 20. I honestly am not sure why my brain is so far in denial. I feel way better than my last pregnancy, so I am thinking it's just a healthy feel good thing. Course, I have another month til I'm full term so I am actually hoping to feel done by around that time, otherwise I don't think my mind will be in the right spot of birthing time....does that make sense? Now I just feel weird.
DH has been watching me, giving me the weird eye lately and mentioned something about my carb cravings right before birth and how at the store he grabbed some carby foods...I had to remind him I've got another month yet I think he's more ready than I am at this point!
Midwife. Mama to five. Love is still the greatest.
