    Welcome to your lodge Kristen. Great intro, I loved how you told your DH you were expecting (both times)!! I was totally crying along with you as I read Connor's birth story - I can't read Shaylen's without crying either. Having a preemie is such an emotional roller coaster - I am so glad he got to go home with you and has done so well. I look forward to hearing all about Isaac's birth!

    Thank you so much for sharing Conner's birth story. I'm so sorry it didn't go as planned, but in the end you had a healthy baby and were able to deliver vaginally. Those are both very positive things.

    Thanks for shareing so much with us, I just got all caught up and really enjoyed your stories. Your birth story is very close to home for me, while my first wasn't at all preemie (actually 5 days late) my experience was much like yours. I have much hope that your next will be better. My second birth experience was soooo different, and is something that my DH and I really bonded through. I really feel like you'll have a better go around with this birth. I'm excited to keep following your story

    Default 36wk appt.

    I had my 36 week appt and it was great! First I'm GBS --------, so yay for that. Everything as far as bp etc is good. I am a 'very stretchy' 1cm and baby is between -2/-1 station. Cervix is still long. I am not putting any weight into the checks but I don't think i'll be able to resist getting checked each week, hmm we'll see how I feel next week.

    I got to ask her a bunch of questions as far as 'routine' deliveries. Upon admission they need to get 20min of baby hr then i'm free to move about, utilize birthing aides and have intermentant (sp???) monitoring with a doppler. I do not have to have any kind of IV or a heplock. she said that this time baby should go straight from canal to ME!!! I get more exciting with every visit and truly believe that this time I'm going to get my chance and delivery the way we want it. I love how supportive my doc is.

    funny note of the appt, while she was checking me she was saying that my bag was a little bulgy but she said "i won't be pushing on that b/c we know what happened last time!" referring to her breaking my water while checking me with ds. it was pretty funny.

    Anyway all is well, i've had some 'crampy' days this week but nothing really to notice.

    I do have a question, obviously he's low b/c of where she can feel the head. but have any of you guys felt like baby has dropped and then later crawled right back up into your ribs??? I kinda gauge where he's at by measuring where my tummy is from by boobs (lol) and sometimes he still seems so high while other i feel like he's going to explode out b/c i have so much vaginal pressure!!! hope i'm not weird!

    I loved your intro! Welcome to your lodge!

    I'm glad you had such a great appointment - I really can't believe you're 36wks already, where has the time gone?!

    I think it's entirely possible for babies to go up and down a bit. My babies never engage or really go down into my pelvis at all until I'm in labour, and on the few occasions they have they tend to "float free" again. It's really annoying as I'd really like the pressure to be gone from my ribs but ho-hum!

    I can't wait to follow your last few weeks and hear all about your birth experience and see cute little baby pics!

    Love,

    Sarah-Jean

    Mine lock in and stay there from early on, I'm just under 5'1" so they don't have a choice It's very possible that he's moveing around still, infact when my mom was expecting my sister and I they told her we were locked in place one head down the other breech, and when she went in for the c-section on of us had flipped! ANYTHING can happen. Here's to hopeing the rest of your pregnancy is easy.
