I keep telling myself that - this is my last pregnancy and I know I will really miss it when Hiccup is here and outta my belly - the big belly, the kicks and shoves (even though they're painful at this point!). So I keep reminding myself that I really just wanna soak up every last day here, no matter how many or few that may be!

Good growing Bennett!!!

AFM: I'm gonna scream right now. FIL didn't come at all today, so the room isn't finished being painted - which means it'll be Friday at the earliest that they'll start the flooring. I had wanted this to be done in the week of spring break. It should be done and rooms and kids should be moved around. Instead, they're taking their time. And driving me crazy.
To top off that, DH put the boys' booster seats in his car (I assume anyways, they're not in the van or the garage). I got myself and all the kids ready and shoved out the door to go to gymnastics... only to find no seats, so we couldn't go anyways.

I think I'm gonna leave for town when DH gets home. I just don't want to be here right now.

Had an appt today. No news. My parents are driving down Saturday so I will be more at ease once they get here.

and even weirder that her first baby was born so similarly to my first baby... it's like the twilight zone
My fundal height always goes down at the end when the baby drops, so maybe that's what it is. So funny about the same birth experiences; maybe you will be sooner than you think! And quick! Almost everyone seems to have had very fast births on here!

That sounds like a rough day! You should get out when DH gets home; get away from the stress for a bit!

I keep sending DH for little pick-up items too....we haven't been on a full trip in at least that long as well. And our food budget is starting to show all this eating out.

42 wks?...you have to fight tooth and nail to go 8 days over in my area, so that's awesome that they give you that option.

That sounds like a great organization.....is it just a local thing in your area?

Sure hope this on call dr is comfortable delivering me in the tub since that has been the plan since the beginning. Baby could wait a couple more weeks to come and it be a moot point, but I at least want to know what I expect if baby does come in the next week. I am sad about the idea of a different dr.
I have that issue every-other weekend. My OB's rotate weekends with another practice. I had a Dr. that I knew, but hadn't seen my whole pregnancy with DD. Hoping that if I go on a weekend again it's one of my own. Oh well if not, they really don't "do" that much anyway.

It's how they calculate how successful an induction would be - or, at least, how they should do it! It should always be figured out before attempting an induction. I mean, if it's a non-medical-reason one, kwim?
here's a couple links that explain the scoring and whatnot - one two
I want a date too!!

You always give the neatest links. Thanks!

Me too. She's due 3 days before me AND this is my third AND they've been expecting this baby for weeks. Now that we're in the "safe zone" he's decided to camp out I guess. Not that I think he should come now or earlier, but it's just frustrating when they're saying anytime and then the baby just waits it out. Also makes me feel like that four weeks of bedrest was ridiculous. Just wish I knew when for sure, bc I'm SO uncomfortable......sorry for the whining! I feel such mom guilt ab this stuff!

I wouldn't worry ab it if he didn't measure you last time.....probably made it up to cover his own butt.

I need to remember that too. We take one at a time and this could be my last as well. Who knows? DH keeps telling me to enjoy having two kids, bc soon we will have three. I know I should be soaking up the time with them, but in the moment it's just hard to bc I just feel like crap most of the time. I struggle with the guilt of wanting this baby in for his safety and wanting him out for my peace of mind and comfort. I feel so selfish. I think God is trying to teach my not to judge other moms who talk ab wanting their babies out b4 the due date. I completely get it now, but not before this. Early on I was adamant ab no induction b4 41 wks and many other things, now I have changed my tune ab so much.

That would be frustrating even if you weren't pregnant. Sorry.

I think that's why I had those contractions and pressure and then poof - nothing.
Because now I can see how so many women get excited and then disappointed.

God is always trying to teach me things.. it gets old
I guess I should feel special since instruction means I'm loved, right?

I forgot to mention that I am gbs -! I thought for sure I would be this time bc everyone else seemed to be. I thought my luck would run out. So I am excited I have one less thing to worry about on my hour and a half ride to the hospital! Keep baby inside until get to the hospital is all I need to think about lol!

The foster clothing organization was started by someone I know who fosters locally, so yes, currently it is a local organization although they have sent clothes overseas so would probably be open to outside areas in need.

I only missed being pregnant with DS for a little while, my belly was so quiet it was weird and a little sad not to feel him in there.

But I am really not a happy pregnant person. It gives me horrific acid reflux that makes me gag and my throat burn badly, I get really bad migraines, and I get dizzy/weak easily. To top it off, I also get pregnancy rhinitis so I am on rhinocort prescription nose spray for that.

Nothing life threatening but just day to day misery, mostly the acid burn in my throat. Pepcid is a godsend and milk is soothing for it so I drink a TON of milk, a gallon a day some days because everything else causes intense burning. I am so sick of drinking milk!!! So I won't miss this. It was all gone instantly when DS1 was born. I am very thankful for that.
