I bet you were exhausted after all that at the docs office. I really hate when they do that to you, they've done it to me at least twice now As for the drops I don't know. Logan got some multi-vit ones that I was told taste really bad, but I don't know about just iron. Hopefully he'll do good with them.
Hopefully you will be able to find a name in time for baby, or maybe you'll just look at her and know her name. who knows, but I'm sure she'll have a name not long from now.

I think I've been losing my mucous plug for the past few days. I never imagined I could get so excited at the sight of mucous! It's not bloody at all, so I know it doesn't mean I'm about to go into labor or anything, but it's nice to know that stuff is happening!
I'm also excited because my aunt might be coming to visit sometime around July 8. If she makes it here before the baby's born, then that means that she can watch Kevin and my mom can be with me during labor. She was with me when Kevin was born, and even though DH was great, it really helped having my mom there too. And I'd love to have her there again for anti-epidural support, since I know from past experience (and recent conversations) that DH isn't completely supportive of natural childbirth.
It's kind of strange -- on one hand I'm very eager for labor to start, and every time I feel any kind of a twinge I imagine my cervix opening up just a little bit more; but on the other hand, I really hope the baby waits a while longer because I know that would be the ideal situation as far as having my family here in time. But it is really exciting to think that either way, the baby will most likely be here in less than 3 weeks!
Hopefully your aunt makes it on time so your mom can support you for the L&D. I can imagine how frustrating it can be when your DH doesn't see you eye to eye on issues concerning the baby or the L&D. I'm kind of stubborn....so I get my way most of the time
Yay for losing your plug! That's some progress. Hopefully your LO will stay put for a bit so your mom can be with you in labor. I'm having that issue too - my mom's watching my kids while I'm in labor so it's just me and dh. My sisters are supposed to come, but they're 2+ hours away so there's a chance I'll be laboring on my own.
Ugh, I'm feeling so yucky! I have pains in my stomach (like really bad gas pains) and I can't stop pooping. This is what happened about 8 hours before I went into labor with DS! I know the doctor said I'd go early, but this is way early; I'm not even 38 weeks yet!
I'm sure it's nothing since it is still so early. It's probably just because I overdid it at the Chinese buffet last night!
If this is not labor-related, then I know one Chinese restaurant that I am never going back to! I still think it's got to be too early to be the onset of labor, but this is really reminding me of what happened right before labor with DS. I'm having DH put the car seat in the van (which I had wanted him to do this weekend anyway) just in case.
