Re: Lil Shamrocks - February chat (1 more month!)

Next month! Woot woot! I'm beyond excited, though really I have 8w1d left until my due date.

If she were born today we would NOT be ready. I was planning to sort and wash all the clothes this week so we'll see if I get it all done. Plus I still have to get the bassinet out of storage. And find my smaller size dipes which are also in storage somewhere. And DH is out of town 14 of the next 21 days.

35+2 today! I've been having a lot of contrax the last 3 days. They come and go in mostly timeable (6-10m) spurts, and sometimes last a few hours. Nothing painful but there are a few that will take my breath away. Sitting or laying is when they happen, not while walking or moving. I hope they're doing something! I'd love to go into labor spontaneously instead of the planned induction we have.

We'd be ready if she came today. The carseat is the only thing left that needs to be installed but that's no biggie.

One more month? That makes it sounds MUCH closer than it really is. I'm looking at it in weeks still... 8 left - so 2 months here.

Got our carseat yesterday.
Bid on a diaper bag on Ebay, will know tonight if I got it.
Working on sorting/organizing the baby's room this weekend.
Nearly to the leg split on the longies for baby's coming home outfit.
STILL have to decide on a name since we both decided the one we had chosen does not work for us.

I am 35+4 today. Thought I was going to deliver last night. Think I ate something bad and I puked the whole night, contractions like crazy. They calmed down finally but my poor body aches so bad I don't wanna move. I'm bummed because there is on o way I can go to school and with baby coming I'm already missing a weekend so I'm gonna have to drop. Really hoping they don't drop me from the entire program since I can take same class same time next year and still graduate on time.

If baby came today,eh.....? Got a few things to buy and need to rewash car seat cover. Otherwise, think we are prepared.

I'm glad we weren't the only ones! Not that the name was bad, but after saying it for months it didn't really fit any more. Our new one just seems like such a better fit.

That sounds icky! I hate the after the throw-ups soreness. Makes me feel like if I just worked my abs more it wouldn't hurt as bad (yeah right). I hope everything works out with your school.

Oh man, one more month! With my family history of delivering at 37-38 weeks I only have about 6 weeks left! I don't know about you ladies but I am SUPER emotional lately. I seriously just cried for 20 minutes because I love my kids SO much. I kept hugging them and crying, they both looked at me like I was crazy. One of my DDs patted my back and said, "Ok mama?".

I downloaded the song that my DD1 is dancing to at her recital in June...totally started crying while listening to it.

I'm 36 weeks today ! We are probably doing the induction in a little over 3 weeks. I can't believe how close we are to holding our little man !!!

I'm away for the weekend with DD and DH. It's DH's birthday so we thought it was the perfect excuse to get in one more weekend away as a family of three before the crazy starts. We got a new diaper bag, a Ju Ju Be Be Prepared, so I've been playing with packing it and we are just relaxing watching movies and playing games.

I was 1cm on Thursday and I've been having contractions more and more the last few days. My MW said they would stop labor until 37 weeks so we need I make it one more week and then I'm all for getting the party started!
