isn't it a weird mix of anticipation for things to get started but also needing to get things done so okay with a few more days (or weeks)?  maybe that's just me feeling that way though. </p>

<br><br><p>I couldn't have said it better myself. Anxious and excited to meet her and experience labor but so not ready for her to be here yet.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Finally finished washing all my (hers?) cloth diapers! I bought organic cotton and hemp prefolds that needed to be washed over and over to prep, 8 times total! Just need to put the diapers together with the covers and cut up & sew some cloth wipes from a few old receiving blankets that my sister in law handed down to me from her son. I do have some baby clothes to wash still, maybe a load or two. Not too much to do as far as baby stuffs, but enough to make me want her to wait until due date (2/13).</p>

<p>Weird day today...started with ctx irregular but all less than 15 minutes apart for several hours and then...nothing.  I am feeling huge and puffy today and very, very wiped.  I keep waiting for the bloody show which is sort of the hallmark sign to know I'm having some actual cervical changes.</p>

<p>well, today is my birthday and i doubt i will give birth in the next 4 hours so no sharing here.  i am really glad to have a few more days at least b/c i am exhausted!  why?  last night, i went to bed around 10pm just feeling weird/off.  woken up at 1am to crampy stomach and bad pains but not contractions.  it felt like food poisoning.  paced the halls between my room and the bathroom for the next 3 hours.  so gross.  was sick all morning and afternoon then just really weak and tired since.  totally wiped out.  we ate pizza (gluten free and vegan, supposedly) out last night and it was yummy but it may have made me sick.  DH and the girls are okay though thankfully!  not at all a fun way to ring in my birthday.  i am getting ready to sleep now but was trying to decide if i should at least TASTE the amazing carrot cake DH made for me when he came home from work early to make it... </p>
<p> </p>
<p>would appreciate this babe staying in at least a few more days so i can get my strength back up.  i feel trashed.  so, like rin and kaydove, i want more time!</p>

<p>Feeling happy and relieved here.  Midwife (CNM) wanted us to do an ultrasound to make sure growth was ok after a couple of weeks of slow fundal height increase, and baby was smack dab in the 50th percentile.  <img alt="orngbiggrin.gif" id="user_yui_3_4_1_2_1328134063041_164" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif">  Plus my fluid levels are healthy, nearly 3 times what they were at the end of my last pregnancy.  I'm "due" on sunday but I'm feeling so happy to be able to let baby decide and not have to spend these last days worrying.  Added bonus - he's LOA for a change.  </p>
<p> </p>
<p>Gunter, hope you're feeling better!</p>
