    That is so funny about being cut off - my DH did that too...until I told him about the 6 week postpartum 'no fly zone'. Somehow he magically got over it and actually went in the opposite direction! lol

    Well... as of this evening 2/3 of my visiting family will have returned home. Dad left yesterday and my sister leaves tonight, both are a bit bummed that no baby made an appearance while they were here but will get over it eventually. My mom announced that she would be staying until the baby is born, and I'm still struggling to deal with that. We had a very calm and respectful talk with her and explained that she would not be asked into the delivery room as Hubby and I wanted to keep it just the pair of us. She 'says' she's ok with that, but still has hints of thinking I'll change my mind at the last minute. *sigh*

    Tomorrow is hubby's birthday, and he's been really great about the fact he could possibly share a b-day with the baby. I've got my midwife's appointment early in the morning and we've already discussed what we could do to get things going for me. Baby is moving and grooving and showing healthy strong progress, but with a history of large heads it would be easier on me NOT to go two weeks over with this one :P I doubt I'll get a sweep tomorrow, but if the midwife offers I'm so taking it! I know... I'm weak! But considering I'm due in four days its not like I'd be rushing things way too early! It's hard to swallow that I think there are only three of the May mommies left who haven't had their babies .... and most of our board went well before 40 weeks I feel broken when I know better that going to term is "normal" sad no?

    Side note, I've often wondered how long people can walk around dilating and effaced... so far its 5 weeks for me! I've been 90% effaced and at a 3 since 35 weeks give or take... so now when I see first time mom's getting all hyped because their doc's tell them they're 50% and at a 2 I want to tell them not to get their hopes up! (they don't appreciate that btw LOL)

    At least you're getting a little more breathing room at home and hopefully your mom will stay ok with you and your DH's decision. My DH was excited that DS arrived so close to his b-day and probably wishes they'd share. He hates getting older

    Hope your MW can help get something going for you tomorrow

    So... I think my midwife is out to get me :P LOL I went in this morning and because it's DH's birthday I took Jayde with me so he could sleep in instead of being annoyed by a hyper 4yr old at 8am. I ran into one of the other ladies from my centering group and we gave each other the old "Sorry to see your still preggers" looks, though she was due today and I not till the end of the week.

    Lost weight... if that is even possible! I've now had a total of 8lbs for the entire pregnancy, so if this kiddo is over 8lbs I'll be lighter than when I started! ROFL She had to take my blood pressure twice because it was apparently very low it didn't quite read right the first time, so I've gotta up my iron a bit just in case. We discussed how I was feeling (dragging the last two days just feeling like blah... mostly because of the non stop rain!) And she decided since I had the little one glued to my leg she wouldn't check me today, and had me book for next week (I'll be 40+4 then) All the while she kept making this crazy sly smiling face while saying she didn't think I had a hope in heck of having this kid before next week.

    I made it a whole hour after my appointment and the contractions started!!!! I've pretty much started at every 12 mins and am now down to about every 3-4 mins... THEY SUCK! But I have a cheesecake in the oven that requires my attention for another hour at least, and guests arriving for a BBQ for DH's birthday (about 15 people) in less than two hours! This is SO the wrong time to have this happen! Thus I've decided I'm going the denial route... and until my water breaks or I can't actually talk through a contraction its just the same old game my uterus has been playing for the last six weeks! LOL

    If denial turns into reality... I'll likely post again ROFL but I'm not getting my hopes up!

    You know, I hear all the time of midwives saying "you aren't going anytime soon" and the woman goes into labor in the next day. I think it is some sort of secret way they have of starting labor lol.

    I do hope this IS it for you b/c I know how fed up you are, but I hope it doesn't really kick in til all the guests leave!

    Well, things are still trudging along, which made for an interesting night (nearly dropped the cheesecake because of a contraction LOL) We made it through the party and even managed to get a few hours of sleep (though not great) last night. I'm hoping this is all going to pick up into active labor soon, since for the first time it doesn't seem to be coming and going. That being said... its not getting stronger/closer together... yet.

    Hubby's got to work today (short day) so for the few hours he's out on site, DD and I are going to go walk the mall or something with my mom in the hopes it pushes things along. I had grand hopes of shaving my legs... but once in the shower I was just to zonkered to do anything but sit under the hot water and relax LOL...that's just as nice right? No one cares if I'm a bit stubbly!

    Keeping my fingers crossed!

    A whole lot of Nothing... I am now officially giving up all hope of having this baby ... ever! I've tried everything (including the cohosh) and nothing is doing a thing. I'm miserable because all those crazy contractions that just show up and vanish randomly are still ever present and I'm sore all over from it. I feel like I've run a darn marathon for the last week straight and the only good thing that has come of this is that I'm SO worn out from just day to day that I am sleeping like the dead! (Yeah not even waking up to pee if you can believe it!)

    Baby is now one day overdue and this is feeling very much like my second where she had to be induced at 42weeks... that terrifies me because of all the issues and complications that came with that! I need this little one to come out now because if he hangs around another week and a half... I am likely to go insane or worse be totally useless for the actual birth because I'm physically so worn the heck out!

    I think I'm going to go cry in the shower for a bit... I feel like the worlds biggest whiner but I can't help it... I'm miserable!

    Oh, I'm sorry. I can't imagine how uncomfortable you are right now. I've been told the prodromal labor is the worse!
    Sending labor prayers your way!
