Been a couple of days of not much action. I'll get in a pattern of regular painful contrax for about an hour - but no more than that. Been taking every day one at a time. Mostly just spending time with DH in the mornings - so nice that he works from home! - napping in the afternoons - and cleaning up as I go. I'm really staying on top of keeping the house super clean and the laundry done as soon as there is enough for a load. I just want to come home to a clean house when it is time!
Not planning anything other than friends hanging out here and there - so no pressure for her to come any time - just enjoying this time as best I can right now
I am glad you are doing well. Enjoy the time you have.
Today is my "prediction due date" - haha! I predicted Feb 6 a while ago. I am soooooo done and so over this already. I know I have 10 days to go. DS was 10 days early so it's possible to happen again. Just feel like crying - all these contractions are really getting to me - I'm so tired - and I'm so excited to meet my little girl. Starting to feel like I'm never actually going to go into labor! PRAYING FOR A SUPER BOWL BABY!!!!!
BTDT with the whole prodromal labour thing....totally sucks! Rest as much as possible through it though. You never know when it's gonna be the real thing and you'll need all your energy!
I agree rest as much as you can. I am sorry.
Sat night I woke up to a small gush of fluid - i was sleeping naked so no pants to check but it did make about a softball sized water spot on my comforter. I jumped up to go to the bathroom and peed. No more fluid has come out since so I'm not sure what that was? I figured if it was my water I would have leaked more at some point right? I never called anyone since it was the weekend... Baby seems to be moving fine - might mention it at my appt Wed? DH and I had DTD that night so maybe it was just fluid from that?
Ps. Exactly this time in my pg with DS I had just given birth - so I have never been "this" pregnant before!! Isn't the next kid usually earlier than the first?? Just being impatient

Hi there, I have just read through all of your lodge, and your birth story from your DS had me in tears, especially the end with God reassuring and comforting you! Anyhow, it sounds like you've been through a lot lately with the house buying, and all the pre-labor stuff. I never had any contractions with my first daughter until after my water broke, so I don't have any advice, but I am praying that your daughter will come in God's perfect timing, and that you will have a lot of energy and peace for the situation. Relaxing and praying is what got me through my first birth, as well as support from others, of course, and it sounds like you have got all 3 this time! Btw, for some people instead of their whole bag of waters breaking, they spring a leak that then stops. It may be something you want to run by your midwife, just to get her input...
