Am I the only one still stalking October's progress? I've been reading their birth stories and watching who goes into labor. And now I get to do that *here* more, too! We've already had so many November babies go early, I can't wait to hear about the rest of us!

Well, we managed to borrow a carseat yesterday, and I'm going to have the rest of my hospital bag packed by today, so I am officially ready.

(which means, of course, that I'll be pregnant until December now...)

Can't wait to read about all your babies coming!!

I'm picking today to nest - that works right? I'm so tired of having a cluttered house.

I have been totally nesting (though not due until the 26th). And the last 8 days I DROPPED in a crazy manner---I went from big, to huge, to gynormous!

But we had some fun last night: Pumpkin Belly!

Finally, NOVEMBER!!! This calls for some dancing veggies


I WILL have a baby this month, and I'm hoping for sooner than later considering it's only 5 days until my due date. There really is an end in sight!

I can't believe it's taken me this long to realize we live really close to each other! I was born & raised in Philly & now live in the 'burbs. We should meet up sometime!!

And your boys are a couple of the most gorgeous boys I've ever laid eyes on!! Look at those dimples!

I really wanted to do the pumpkin belly thing too, but lacked the motivation. I guess I still could...

Me, too. I about died of excitement when I lost a big (though not bloody) huge amount of mucous the other day. My body's doing *something* at least!

Having been through 2 inductions I would never have another for anything but a very validated medical reason as I know it's worse than going through this for another month! But non-medically done inductions do sound good. EPO, pineapple, sex, I'm trying it all already! Baby will come when ready, but I can gently nudge.

And that's awesome about it being the first boy in 50 years. How cool is that!

I've been crampy all this morning - uncomfortable, but not anything I'd call a contraction. Blech - if I'm not due for another couple of weeks, and if the baby isn't going to come for a couple of weeks after that, then just please leave me in peace until then!

I'm excited it's finally "baby month" but DH left this afternoon for a business trip. I really want to just settle down and be ready for my girl to be born but I can't let myself feel like that until he gets back. He comes home on Friday and I'll be 38 weeks then so it's not likely I'll have this baby while he's gone. Still, I'm feeling like this is cutting it close and I have a busy week and am feeling overwhelmed and teary. Welcome to November!

With DS, the bloody show came in the middle of the night only after I started early contractions. Now I'm worried I'll miss it if it comes during the night again since I pee in the dark so as not to wake DS. Every time I pee at night I wonder "did I get my bloody show and I just can't see it?"

Happy birth month, everyone!!
