Angela I am <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> at the "lay off the candy" comment. I can relate!<br><br>
Remijo - yikes with the teething. I'm clearly not wise because my wisdom teeth have never surfaced. I'm crafting up a storm (or should be). I thought I was going to be able to get more done with the ILs and the 'rents here but I spent so much time entertaining/cleaning/organizing that I only crossed ONE item off my holiday gifting list. Bah.<br><br>
The whole car seat thing has me feeling <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/dizzy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Dizzy"> My DD is such a bean, there is no way I feel comfortable having her FF but I have no idea how to fit another seat in the car without facing her forward. Even if we went directly for a convertible seat, I'd still have to deal with turning DD FF, getting NB wrapped/slung every time we left the car and making sure DD was holding my hand while we walk the block to the house and up the 2 flights of stairs.<br><br>
Kim - I love all the names, esp Hazel and Gwen.<br><br>
Our babe is still completely unnamed. I should be more concerned.<br><br><br>
What is it with MWs "requiring" a dozen baby blankets for the birth? I swear we didn't use any at DDs birth. We are so strapped for money that I can't really justify buying more... time to get crafty with the fabric stash.

Hello December! This will very likely be the month we will meet Isobella... I cannot frikken wait. I am serious. I really, really, really really REALLY want to fast forward to birth day. Argh! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">

This month will very likely pass without so much as a hint to baby. Though it will be fun to hear so many birth stories and see all the little ones swaddled and loved. Yay for being close.

Trying to deny that it is December and how crazy the next few weeks are going to be. We are due Jan 1 and hoping to meet baby this month hopefully right after Christmas but before is welcome <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

I just can't believe it is December already!<br><br>
I have reached my "safe zone" so I could have the baby tomorrow! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/yikes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="EEK!"> Not that I intend to, but still. I have had a back ache for two days and come & go contractions for a week (leaving my stomach feeling like I had done hundreds of sit-ups the next day). And my LO that has been "nursing" (really just attaching after he finishes his bottle of milk) has decided to start nursing in earnest again. So, now my breasts are very tender again (something I was so happy to be gone with when he slowed up his nursing). And him crawling all over my big old rounding belly at night as he wants to switch sides is just SO uncomfortable!<br><br>
I am 35wks now, and my OB would love nothing better than to induce me at 37wks. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> And as tempting as that is sounding right now, I told her I don't "do" inductions unless I feel I really need one. So, she has graciously said she would "allow" me to go to 39 wks. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/biglaugh.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="laugh"> If she only knew that I planned to UC!<br><br>
I am just waiting to see how all my labs come back as well as my GBS test this week. My b/p is slightly higher now than it has been running, but nothing really noticeable to anyone but me. So, I guess the meds are working to keep it all level. My wonder is if meds to keep your bp down really keep the problems away or if they just mask them. I guess we will see. And very soon.

What is it with OBs "allowing" the pregnancy to continue to a certain point?! I hate the use of the term "allow" when it comes to pregnancy/birth. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/irked.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="irked"><br><br>
I met with a homeopath earlier this week, and am waiting on a remedy that will hopefully encourage my platelet levels to stay high enough to make a home birth safe. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/fingersx.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="fingersx"><br><br>
I can't believe it's December... baby due next month! Yikes! But it still feels like ages away because of Christmas falling in the middle of now and then. We should probably start getting things together for the birth, but haven't yet... Same goes for family Christmas gifts. I am feeling very disorganized!

I can't believe it is December! It is very likely that we will meet these babies this month! (I am hoping they come around 38 weeks or so).<br><br>
I am 34 weeks now and I only have 3 weeks to go until I reach my goal of 37 weeks!!<br><br>
Faliciagayle- We are doing bucket seats for the babies. It would just be too hard to do anything else in the winter.<br><br>
Crunchymama- I have been thinking about you and your platelets!

yikes! december! lol! after our trip to my out-laws for thanksgiving, i came home with a nasty cold/sinus thing and have been sick for 5 days now. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"> thankfully dp and our son are ok. we decided to give all of her immediate family gift cards for christmas, so that at least is taken care of. my family (in scotland) will be getting gift vouchers.<br><br>
we haven't put the tree up yet, but it's on our list. our diaper stash is about ready and i picked up several really good deals in the black friday / cyber monday sales, yay! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> some of the newborns arrived yesterday and they are SO CUTE (lol, and i'm not even the pregnant one!)<br><br>
dp is still trucking along. no signs of baby dropping - she's been having indigestion/reflux for the last few weeks. and...there are now red stretch marks popping up everywhere on her belly.<br><br>
it's amazing to think that for some of the ladies here this is baby month! wow!<br><br>

I am also stunned that it's December! It's hard to believe this baby will be here....so soon!! I'm due Jan. 3 and if baby doesn't come in December I'm hoping the full moon on December 31 will coax him or her out <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> Midwifes are required to "report" if I go to 42 weeks and apparently must turn over care to an OB if I go 43 weeks. I think they have some tricks up their sleeves to avoid going that far over if possible. I start weekly "cervical ripening" acupuncture treatments next week too.<br><br>
We are pretty much set up except for cleaning up the 2nd bedroom where we want to set up the birthing pool. I wanted to have it done by 37wks...which is a week and half away! Unfortunately, I've been having really bad muscle spasms in my back and DP works 12-14 hour days right now so there is not a whole lot of cleaning happening at the moment. This weekend will be a busy one!

I'm due Jan 20th so I still have plenty of waiting to do... although IMO 6 weeks is plenty short enough to feel panicky and like I'm running out of time!! I was due towards the end of the month with my last pregnancy and it was exciting/frustrating to see everyone (just about!) go before me and meet all the babies!!

December! I can't believe it's here! FINALLY.<br><br>
I'm hoping I have the baby by the end of the month, around December 28-29 would be perfect, thanks! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"><br><br>
Seriously, though, this month can't go by fast enough. So much going on, family party on the 13th, school finals on the 18th, DD's birthday party on the 20th, Christmas and then the final weeks to obsess and clean. I'm really, really looking forward to school ending and that being removed from my plate.<br><br>
Most excitedly, I cannot wait to start hearing all of your birth stories! I know we'll start having some sooner rather than later!<br><br>
I still have a lot of cleaning to do. We need to switch DD's sidecarred crib to DH's side of the bed and I need to set up the co-sleeper. Planning to have LO on my chest but need the co-sleeper for diapers <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1"> and to have a place to set her down safely momentarily during the night.<br><br>
Unfortunately I have zero energy to clean and only slightly more motivation. I've been having lots of contractions, too, had a long stretch of them last night. I called the Dept. of Health to request an Out-of-Hospital Birth Packet (last time it took them more than a week to get it to me, super annoying since it's an extra hassle to get a BC here after more than 10 days after birth). Big surprise the clerk said I needed to wait until after the baby was born to request a packet -- um, NO. It's just a paper packet, just send it! Luckily I downloaded the same thing off the state's website. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/irked.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="irked"><br><br>
I'm starting to lie awake thinking about labor and coping skills. I think part of me has forgotten the reality of it...I'm trying to prepare mentally, to visualize that "place". Visualization helped a lot last time and I feel like I'm running out of time...

I got my packet too (San Diego co). I am trying to get all the things covered. Got my ultrasound report, but had to go back because they won't accept a electronic signature (but the IRS sure will). Now I have to save two pieces of mail with my name on it before and one piece of mail after the baby comes. Geesh- the things they make people do. At least I got the proof of pregnancy thing over with, that was the worst. Planning a UC shouldn't be so hard. And I may end of in Family court <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/irked.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="irked">. Although I hope I get a clerk who is feeling generous and will just give us the birth certificate no problem <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up">. And when I ordered the packet I asked for two in case the kids scribbled on one or something. At least I didn't have to wait on hold forever unlike most other places.

I read that and was thinking, "the STATE will send you your birth supplies?!!? In the US?! Wow! But you have to wait until the baby is already born? Well, that's just because they are trying to dissuade people from having home births... "<br><br>
And then I realized you meant paperwork... Silly me...<br><br>
We *do* get an "out of hospital birth pack" from our midwives, supplied by the National Health Service. I think they just called it the "home birth box" last time. Probably get ours brought over about 37 weeks, so just after Christmas.

Seriously, I know! I always just think, PLEASE, can just one thing be easy? I literally had to jump through hoops of fire to register DD's birth. We're in Riverside Co. (not too far away!) We had a midwife, too, and I still had trouble getting a SSN (2 trips down to the office with baby), paperwork for my maternity leave and the whole hassle of the BC. They were just incredulous that I had neither a hospital discharge record nor a vaccination record. I tried to explain the born-at-home concept and again, they told me they'd need the hospital discharge record. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/irked.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="irked"> It was that hassle that had me thinking I'd have all the paperwork ready to go this time. We've got the jump this time!<br><br>
I was talking to one person from the state - I don't remember about what - possibly Family Leave and after I explained DD was born at home, she simply stated, "Well, I don't know what to tell you." Is there someone there who does know??? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/irked.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="irked"><br><br><div style="margin:20px;margin-top:5px;">

If the state did issue birth supplies, I'd bet my last dollar they'd arrive after the birth. It seems like nothing can get done in a timely manner around here.<br><br>
Does the box contain all the medical supplies for the midwife? It's so great that homebirth is so supported in the UK and probably makes possible transfers so much easier if they need to happen. I dread the possibility of being faced with that and being treated like I've had *no* prenatal care.

Still reading up, but wanted to say- this is my DD too! My milks been gone since she was 5 mo old, and she was content to nurse only before naps and bed time but now she wants to nurse allllll day and alllllllll night. I'm considering bringing her back into bed with me because she wants to nurse and/or cuddle my boobs the entire night, even while sleeping. Except our bed isn't big enough for me, DH, a toddler, and a newborn. Sigh.

This was me with my son! I was due 7/18 and he was still one of the last babies born b/c he was 11 days late. I'm starting to hope this little one is late too b/c looking at my pregnancy ticker today I realized I only have 47 days until my due date. With all the craziness of Christmas it's going to fly by.<br>
I think this is the first item I've posted in these chat threads b/c I usually have DS on my lap or pulling at me lol Some exciting news with us-We've finally decided homebirth is the best option for us so I met with a great midwife last week, and have my first prental visit with her next week. I am SO excited. I never thought I would get to a point where homebirth was something I would be interested in, but I feel so at peace with our choice. I was starting to really stress about traveling 45 minutes away to the birth center in possible snow and very cold temps.<br><br>
Anyone else have a baby that is still flipping from head down to breech? None of my kids have ever stayed breech long enough for me to notice they were breech. This little booger will not stay head down and it's starting to make me a little nervous. I mean, mulitple times a day s/he flips back and forth! I know I sitll have lots of time and it's not a huge deal yet, but I can't help but worry a little.

I never do much with visualization. I can't even THINK too much about the birth part or I get tingly scared/ excited and I can't function because I'm so excited, let alone make real labour visulizations. I looked at the scissors we're planning to use to cut the cord, and I had to go sit down. It's ridiculous!<br><br><div style="margin:20px;margin-top:5px;">

Tree- on the list. Not sure when we'll do it, since DD is 1 and likes to destroy things....<br>
Diapers- I REALLY need to get on that. I need a few NB diaper covers, some prefolds (what the heck size prefold should I get? Preemie? Infant? No clue) and I want to buy some One-Size diapers as well for once he gets a bit older.<br><br>
I bought a crapload of fleece (seriously, wayyyy too much fleece) to make diaper covers and sleepsacks, but IDK when I'll get the time to do anythign with it<br><br><div style="margin:20px;margin-top:5px;">

With DD, I didn't get a single stretchmark until 37 weeks. Just when I thought I was in the clear... not fair!<br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br>
DH and I are having a "thing." He feels unloved and I feel like he never listens to me or helps out. No idea how to fix it. He asked that I act like I love him and my reaction was "What?!??!" It's true. He's trying to be nice and helpful, and I'm just angry all the time. Really not sure how to fix it.

<div style="font-style:italic;">Anyone else have a baby that is still flipping from head down to breech? None of my kids have ever stayed breech long enough for me to notice they were breech. This little booger will not stay head down and it's starting to make me a little nervous. I mean, mulitple times a day s/he flips back and forth! I know I sitll have lots of time and it's not a huge deal yet, but I can't help but worry a little.</div>

Yup! Making me nervous too.<br>
He was breech until about 26 weeks, I think? Stayed solidly head-down until about 30 weeks and the last 2 weeks he's been going around and around. He was breech when I got DD down for a nap, and is back to vertex now.<br><br>
Make up your mind already! (but please, decide on head-down, thanks!)

This is a tough time. It will work out.<br><br>
I will read all your birth stories!<br><br>
Emailed MW with sense of panic that she wasn't going to get to the house before the labor, so we've got our house date all set.

Heh.<br><br>
Recently discovered some strange policies about NY state - refusal of antibiotic eye ointment and Vit K shot (even with a planned HB) is grounds for referral to Social Services. Never dealt with a policy like this, it's kinda freaking me out.
