Hey thanks everyone! What a nice surprise.

The best news I have to share is that I'm GBS negative! Yahoo So I'll be able to labor as long as I want at home, no worry about getting antibiotics!

Physically I feel fine, I have some swelling in my feet, but that's more weather-related (and the fact that our A/C has been out of commission for the last 3 weeks, new one being installed on Thursday, which is a guarantee that I'll go into labor Wednesday night...) than a sign of anything.

I haven't had contractions recently, a bunch last week, but none this past weekend. I think he knew he was banned from coming on May 30 or 31st. Thomas was born in May, and I really didn't want this one to share a birth month with him. Thomas as the middle child will have so few things that belong to him alone, so I wanted his birth month to be his. Now that June is here, this baby is welcome to come anytime! Yahoo

The only hold up is a name. We're stuck on a few -- none that really grab us. It's different because I've always had baby names just a little while after we found out the gender. I guess it gets harder with each boy as we've used up our favorites! Smile

My ideal birth date is June 7th, as that would make my kids have the dates of 5-6-7-8. (though not in that order)

Thomas, some people feel the middle of the sandwich is the best part! Biggrin

I am so excited for you, Janel!!! Blum 3 And I totally "get" not wanting your kids to share a birth month. I really wanted Tiven to be born in June, not a single family member on either side has a June birthday. And with Weston, I was actually quite relieved when August 1st rolled around so we didn't have me, Tiven, and him all born in July.

Good news about the GBS. Sorry about the difficulty with a name. I don't know what we would have done if we were having another girl since just agreeing on Zoe took months of daily negotiations.

Had my (hopefully last) midwife appointment. Nice and boring, measuring on track. I made an appointment for next week, hoping I won't need it. Though the nurses go on a one-day strike on Thursday, so I'd like to go earlier in the week. Didn't check for dilation -- I'd rather not know, since it doesn't tell me much about when I'd actually have the baby. I've had fast labors, so I could go from nothing to ready pretty quickly.

Got this update from Janel on facebook:
"He's here! 8 lbs 21 inches, 6:57am 6/5/2010. Fuzzi reddish hair. Still no name :)"

Congrats, Janel, and welcome to the world, little one!

Yay!! Congrats on your little guy Janel! Can't wait to hear more, I hope it went well and you and baby recover quickly! A tip just in case, after pains seem to be worse with each baby and my mw told me that laying on my stomach would help and while that advice didn't help while nursing after nursing I'd lay on my stomach (but up on my elbows to protect the sore girls) and it did actually seem to help.

Oh Janel, how fantastic! Eager to read an update when you have a chance.
All I had to do was leave town and look what happened! Wink
Did you knit anything for this little fellow? All the best.
