I woke up SIX times to pee last night. UGH. I guess that will soon be how often I am waking up to feed these babies but still -- it was painful. I do want AT LEAST another week as I want to make it full term but man - I am tired.

it can't be long now...because I'm 2 cm dilated (and extremely mushy/stretchy), have sharp pain from a baby butt in my ribs 24/7, and that head that keeps jabbing me in the cervix!

I am only 36 weeks and feel like I have probably 5-6 weeks to go, so I'm not counting on going early...just being silly and complaining a tad bit All in all I've been blessed with a very comfy pregnancy

Cuz after an entire pregnancy of waiting five days between poops, I'm now having "the squirts" once or twice a day. Feast or famine around these parts, I guess.

Me+DH+DS1+DS2+Dog=me and a house full of guys, which is really just peachy, thanks.

...because after an entire pregnancy of being like "sure, whatever, I'm pregnant again," all of a sudden I feel the need to fold tiny articles of clothing and read pregnancy discussion board threads.

... because I drank three bottles of water yesterday and peed ONCE.

And then woke up four times overnight to pee.

I'm a freakish water-retainer, though. Last time around, my CNM couldn't make heads or tails of it. I just puffed up and puffed up and puffed up and puffed up, and she kept saying, "Usually when people retain THIS much water, it's accompanied by other issues." But nope, no high BP, no protein in my urine, no pitting on my ankles, even. Just really, really puffy .

both! I retained masses of water when pg with DD, but not so much this pregnancy. Hers was a summer pregnancy though and this one is winter. Anyway, I sweated bucket loads for a week solid after DD was born. I had lost 20kgs (44 pounds) by the time she was a week old.

yes please!! 44lbs would rock kinda makes me think of that film tank girl - where they suck the water outta ppl and they shrivel up

PIE - kinda mixed results... laying on my back is super painful but when DH gotta good grib and pulled it REALLY helped, but then he couldnt let go cuz it's instantly hurt....cue really UNfrisky awkward man-handling of me to roll off the bed together, while still applying traction, until i could get feet on the floor due to darn leg cramps haha yep, pregnancy ROCKS.

Yup, that's me.

FREAKY SACKS OF WATER UNITE!

I had to have a catheter after DS's birth (lots of tearing), so I'm not entirely sure, but it came out pretty quickly. Like DH had to point out to the nurse that the bag was full, because it never occurred to her that it would be full so soon.

Me+DH+DS1+DS2+Dog=me and a house full of guys, which is really just peachy, thanks.
