    Happy soon to be anniversary! Since it is getting nice out, what about a drive in movie? do you guys have one of those near you? It's kinda fun to get a blanket out and lay in the grass watching a movie.

    Our DD is Addelyn, I never even thought of calling her Ada, what a cute nickname! We just call her Addie.

    We are the worst with dates. :/ We usually end up at dinner and that's it. Sorry no help. Glad things are going well for you though.

    Default 37w5d

    I woke up feeling really achy this morning in my pelvis and back. Usually I go to bed achy and wake up ready to go. Over the last couple of days I have had to time contractions a couple of times but usually after 30-45 minutes of timing they stop... before that they were every 5 minutes and lasting for 1 1/2-2 min. I am really hoping that this is a good sign and my body will start with contractions this time, usually my water breaks and then I have to go right to the hospital. I would really like to labor at home for a while. I am off to the grocery store this morning. Maybe all of the walking/lifting will start some proper contractions or at least stretch my muscles out so I'm not achy anymore. Have a great Monday everyone!

    Good luck! I hope the bouts of contractions turn real for you and you get to labor at home.

    I think the one on one thing is a FABULOUS idea. How cool for the kids. As for date night... what is that. Sigh!

    Default 37w6d appointment

    I love my doctor! I had my appointment this morning and asked him about episiotomys. His reply was that he almost never does them. He said he has maybe 1 or 2 each year that he has to cut. He also said that he can usually make it so that his patients don't even tear. I wish he had been my doctor when I had my first c-section. I think it would have never happened. I lost another lb this week so my total weight gain is only 23 lbs. I am measuring great and I also talked to him about avoiding Premature Rupture of Membranes. He was fine with not checking my cervix unless I decide that is what I want so we didn't (apparently that may have been the reason my water broke before having contractions with my other kids). I have another childbirth class tonight with my doula, should be a good day!

    Thanks for all of your ideas on dates! I think we are going to go to a comedy club and out for a nice dinner. Maybe all of that laughing will start contractions I am really feeling good right now and don't mind keeping her in there a little longer though. I remember hardly being able to move with my other kids at this point. I think the one thing that makes me want this baby out now is when the sun is shining and I see my nice garden outside ready to be planted. I know there is no way I could bend over to get seeds in the ground right now and it is too muddy to sit. Oh well, hopefully mid April won't be too late to get peas, beets and spinach in. Yum! Can't wait for some homegrown produce!
