    Joan-Good luck with the gbs swab and the sibling class.

    Jill-Sorry you are dealing with all that unemployment paper work. I hear being unemployed is a job in itself because of all the paperwork.

    Jessica-Sorry about your fish, that would make me sad too. I get emotional when my plants die. Have fun at your mom's though, hope the roofer reschedules.

    Alissa-Wow how awesome that its your last week of work. Im so jealous!!

    Aimee-Hope you have a nice easy week. Only a couple more weeks until your LO is here!

    Adriana-I have been looking for some already painted letters too. Part of me wants to paint them myself, but Ive got too many projects started that I need to finish. Sounds like you had a productive weekend though!

    AFM-Ive been up since 3:30am. Couldn't sleep so I just decided to go ahead and start my day @ 5am. I worked 13 hours yesterday, so today is going to feel long. I have to skip my lunch hour for a client meeting, so I'm hoping to leave early at least by 5pm. I'm ready for things to calm the eff down. If I go past my due date I might take some days off before the baby comes. I don't think I could handle this intensity of work at 40+ weeks. Oh and it would be nice if winter could just end already. I can no longer wear socks or boots. Yesterday it was in the 30's. The whole reason I moved back to Texas is because its usually warm by March. Boo. On a more intereting note...I meet my doula this weekend. We have only spoken on the phone and by email so far.

    Oh fun!! I toyed with hiring one, but decided against it ... just didn't think it was for me. I do believe in their benefits though, and I'm really interested to hear how your experience goes! I hope she takes great care of you.

    Heading out in a few minutes to Anchorage. I think I have everything packed. whew!

    I have my NST and BPP and then OB appointment this morning. It will be interesting. I am still coughing (been a month now) and saw my regular doc yesterday. He thinks I may have pertussis, which would really be a bad thing if I went into labor this week. SO please send me NO LABOR vibes! I started antibiotics for it yesterday and I am at risk of passing it on for 5 days. Pertussis in a newborn would be very bad. We did cultures and will know in a few days if I am positive or not. If I am and keep junior baking for a week or so, then he will have some awesome immunity to it!

    Also, my doc said my GBS came back positive. Just what I needed. I swear anything that could be out of sorts is out of sorts with me this pregnancy! It will be interesting to see what the OB says today. I am allergic to the 2 most common antibiotics given for prevention. argh.

    Cristan - What a mess!! I'm grateful for being part time military sometimes because they vaccinated me against pertussis. Hubby still needs to get it though!! Ugh ... and Group B Step?? I'm so sorry.

    Elizabeth I have had the same issue the last two nights. one night i was up from 12-2 for no reason and then last night I fell asleep super early but was up from 9:30-11. i had nothing on my mind (i was singing Doc McStufins one night thanks to my DS)... Iti s the worst and makes for a LONG day.

    Cristan: that is horribe that you have all this going on... try to stay positive and maybe it will work itself all out.

    AFM: I am so sore and exhausted. I want ot make it to my date so badly and it is all I think about. I can't stand it at all. I am trying to wrap everything up each day before I leave here and not leave anything hanging over like correcting and stuff because I am so worried. Hopefully it is all just mental with me. With my DS I realized that I had 10 days off before my c-section because it was our April vacation week... but this time I am going on the same gestation day but working up until the day before blah! Oh and this paper and slideshow have not moved forward really... got a little done today and then we had a lockdown drill and I got sidelined.

    WOW!!!! Everybody sounds so busy and it's getting to the countdown before some of us give birth to some beautiful wonderful little babies. I hope everyone is staying healthy and positive, i know i am trying. AFM This past Saturday my hubby and I went to tour the hospital and go through a childbirth class. It was super awesome and it made me feel a lot more comforting but I still am stressing a lot. Trying not to but it's really hard. This week I will be relaxing and hopefully some nesting. And I have my other baby shower this weekend! So i am excited! Not much longer. I am 34 weeks today! YAY!!!

    So.. my brother is on the way to Conn. (really really long story). He called me this morning at THREE AM - left a voicemail. I was asleep on the couch (sometimes I can't get comfy in bed) and I struggled with answering it, because...I mean, it's 3..he might be in trouble. So I listened to the voicemail. He was calling to tell me he loves me and he's gonna miss me. *eyeroll* Right. That's why you live two streets away and I haven't seen you in three months. I texted him that it was sweet, but totally could have waited until 5AM, when I would be at work.. Then I couldn't go back to sleep. So I got up and went on in to work. I'm supposed to be there at 4AM anyway, but there's no POINT for me to be there that early so usually it doesn't happen.

    Worked. Went to my doc appt. I am positive for GBS. Every question I asked her about water breaking and/or labor starting she just kept saying, "Oh you'll know". I got up from the couch yesterday and there was this...wet stain right where I was sitting. I know it's from me, but I didn't feel it coming out. Apparently if my water breaks I'll feel it coming out. I'm getting my car inspected in about an hour and then I'll probably come home and sleep. Or I might do that now...lol

    Jessica I keep getting the same answers when I ask about this stuff. My DS was so much easier but I think the 10 days being off before helped with that. TMI but my discharge has been a lot the last couple days and I keep wondering if it means anything but I am sure it doesn't lol...

    From what I hear the positive on GBS is pretty simple to make it through. 3 of the girls preggo when I was with DS had it and it was no big deal but I guess I am lucky it doesn't matter with the c-section.

    AFM - well I got one section of my paper done... these are just drafts so I left it pretty messy so I had stuff to tweak for the final draft. I now need to do the lit review which he said I can use part of from another class so that shouldn't take me long either! Leaving work in a few and have everything set in case it is the last day lol... Kind of stressful not knowing. I have an annoying parent meeting tomorrow morning that is one that we keep passing out the same crap and hear from mom that she is going to fix stuff but nothing gets done and I just get so mad wasting my time away from a class to deal with it... I have no problem if something changes but to take me away from 19 other students annoys me. Ok time to pack up and waddle to my car!

    I keep asking my midwife those questions too about how I will know I'm in labor and when to call and when to head to the hospital and she keeps telling me they will give me that info at 36 weeks. I dont see the harm in knowing now.

    Cristan and Jessica sorry about the GBS. I really don't want it because I want to labor at home and I think if you test positive they make you come to the hospital earlier to start the IV antibiotics.

    Cristan, I'm sorry about the pertussis. This is whooping cough right? That stinks. My midwife just offered me the DTAP vaccine, but I wanted to wait until after the baby comes. I just got one last year anyway when I went to Thailand. Hopefully they can control it with antibiotics and you will be all healed before the baby comes.

    Katie-Did you enjoy the hospital tour? How many childbirth classes do you have? Thats exciting about your shower! You should share pics afterwards. Im having another shower with friends in a couple of weeks. Im excited too!
