    Wow you have been through so much. Thank you so much for sharing. I am so happy that you are remaining positive and doing so well this pregnancy. I am glad you have midwives that are supportive and helpful. That makes such a difference.

    Sounds like you've had a ton of different journeys, but I'm glad you've found some good midwives. I can't wait to see how this journey unfolds for you

    So last night was bar none the WORST night sleep I've had in this entire pregnancy! I felt like my hips were actually trying to break apart and thus finally fell asleep around 5am *groan* Jayde woke up at 10:30am bless her for sleeping in so apart from the 30 or so phone calls from 8am on... lol I got some sleep.

    I have my 36week appointment and final centering group today, I'm excited and sad at the same time, the ladies in my group have become great friends and it will feel weird not seeing each other every other week! Going to do my Group B strep swab today, that way its done and over with, I never even made it to that point with Jayde so this time we can go in knowing if I'm positive or not (by luck I wasn't last time)

    What really irks me today, and I totally might be blowing things out of proportion because I'm tired, fat, and generally unpleasant today... Hubby got a call from work that they want him to drive down to a city south of us (about 3 hours away) for a 40 min job... First... its snowing like crazy through southern Alberta right now and so the weather is iffy at best, and second IF I do go into labor while he's gone I'll have to get Jayde off to Granny's and get myself to the hospital (5mins away) without him... and he'll likely miss the birth even IF I could get ahold of him! Am I wrong to be a bit cheesed that he said yes to this job? It was after all an option. He's super stressed about money with the baby coming and the fact I won't be working as much for awhile... but geebuz, its not like its even great money!!!!! grrrrr

    I'm going to try to get through the rest of today without getting steamed about this, we're taking Jayde to the Dinosaur museum to kill part of the afternoon, and also because we want her to have some last special time with just Mommy and Daddy. We're still paranoid about how she's going to react to her little brother since she's been the solo princess for 99% of the time!

    I would be upset about DH taking the job as well. Even if finances were tight. Especially since you have a history of going into labor earlier. Once I hit 35 weeks I refuse to let my DH take any business trips even if it's only a couple hours away and the earliest I've had a baby is 39 weeks 2 days.

    Wow, you have some "big" stories with your previous births. Thank goodness for that random midwife who came in and checked you. I'm so glad the midwives took you this time.

    As for today, I really hope your hubby makes it back quickly!

    I can understand not wanting your hubby to go, I wouldn't either. But I also know men, and the money factor when it comes to new kiddos is very important to them, in ways that it isn't to us. So I can see why he said yes. Anyhow, I am praying he gets home in plenty of time. Hoping you can get some more rest/sleep before baby makes an entrance! Also praying for GBS-!

    My goodness, your intro was intense! Like a movie!

    I also understand you being mad at dh about the job, but it is hard for men to not think of the finances with new babies.

    A movie? Really? I think its like a bad case of Murphy's law LOL (funny enough that's my maiden name) I keep trying to tell myself that everything I've gone through has passed and try to look back on it with as much humor as I can muster, but sometimes when I'm sitting in yet another doctors office explaining all this mess... well it can be a bit much :P

    My 36 week appointment was super quick, I decided not to stay for centering because I really wanted to get a head start up to the museum (about a 2 hour drive) and figured spending more time with Jayde before baby comes was more important than making beaded necklaces with the ladies at centering. Baby is definitely head down, and the midwife was shocked I was walking as easily as I was given just how low he really is! Of course they asked about the contractions which are as unchanging as ever and always poking up at the worst times (like when I'm sneezing, laughing or trying to swallow :P) They decided to forgo a cervical check, not wanting to get anything going if it wasn't headed that way anyway, and I agree'd mostly because I really didn't want to be all crampy and sore while we walked in the afternoon. Heartbeat was strong, and as usual baby kicked the ever living daylights out of the doppler, making sure we all knew that he was less than impressed at being checked on -again-. Hubby is always so proud at his ninja like aim, I however am less impressed as its me between him and the doppler LOL.

    I got my group B strep test done YAY, and got my official folder for any future trips to the hospital. And with the same "No sex, no RRL tea, no strong sneezing, no touch football" warnings the midwives sent us on our merry way, again strict instructions that they don't want to see me again until my appointment next week. I jokingly said now that I've made it to 36 weeks I'm going to not have this kiddo till 42 weeks.

    We headed up to the Museum, and if you've ever heard the old wives tale about bumpy roads causing labor? SO can see that being true. We got half way there and a small little sign gave us warning that the road was officially... not there... Two seconds later and we're off roading and I was secretly wishing I had duct taped my whoohaa. But we made it without any babies popping out between bumps and we had a great time, Jayde officially has decided that the Triceratops is her favorite dinosaur. With all the driving to and from, it was bedtime before we got home and now I'm gleefully curled up in bed not having contractions and munching on doughnuts and coffee :P Life is good.
