Hi Everyone! I didn't know I had a lodge until Janel (camelnoodle) pm'd me and told me! Eek!
I will try to get pictures posted, etc. but our regular desktop computer is broken right now so all I have is the laptop. Anyway, I will be 39 weeks tomorrow! I have been having lots of Braxton Hicks contractions that are new to me since I never had those with the girls. I started losing my mucus plug yesterday, too, so that's progress. At my last midwife appointment on Monday I was 2 cm, stretchy to 3, and 80% effaced. I feel ready for the baby to come, but also feel like there's so much still to do! We have a snow day today from school/work, so I'll try to get some things done today even though it'll be harder with the girls underfoot. DH is here too, so that'll help.
More to come! I'm so excited to have a lodge!!!!!!
Yay! I am excited for you. Not much longer now. How far along were you with the girls?

Just got the girls to bed tonight. We went to the mall so I could walk laps inside somewhere. I walked for awhile and had lots of Braxton Hicks contractions while walking, but nothing since we've been home. I'm doing everything I can think of to get this kiddo to come out and meet us. The housecleaner comes tomorrow so maybe he'll come tomorrow after we have a clean house?
We still don't really have a definite name picked out yet, either. So, we're debating that. I don't want to have him circ'd but DH does, so we're also debating that. It seems there are always loose ends.
I haven't been sleeping well at all- last night I didn't fall asleep till 4 am. My alarm is set at 5 am for work... So, I didn't go in today. Just was feeling crampy and yucky. But, I gradually felt better throughout the day and made it to my chiropractor appointment at 2. She adjusted some things and hopefully that'll give baby permission to turn back around because he's gone posterior on me again... Tonight I'm going to follow the midwife's suggestion and drink a glass of wine to help relax me.
