    Welcome to your lodge. I loved reading through your previous experiences and glad that the second one went easier than the first. I'm sure this third one will be great

    Love that picture!

    I've had some cramping and intestinal issues today. It darn well better not be baby because I am not ready yet. I also have plans for tomorrow. A friend I haven't seen for 3 years is in town for the day, so baby has to hold off. I'd like him to wait another 2 weeks!

    ETA: I think he's happy where he is. Everything has settled down. I expected it to, but it's still a relief!

    Glad things have settled down.

    I had a good friend come into town the day I gave birth and I missed seeing her... so I'm glad you'll be able to visit with your friend. I know how it feels!

    37 week appointment... mixed news. I look good. Baby's active and his HR is good. But I didn't gain any weight and my fundal height didn't change. The MW said "Hmm. You're 37 weeks and you're not measuring much. I think I can give you 35cm." which is where I was last week (same MW measuring). So, if there's no change next week they'll probably want to do an u/s. I've been measuring 2w behind off and on, but still... I'm a little nervous knowing that I could go in next week, get an u/s, and if anything looks wrong could be induced. Fortunately, I know my MWs won't want to induce unless necessary.
    No cervix check until next week. Hopefully he's just low. Oh, and after I left I realized they forgot to take my BP (they were down a PA again and she usually does it). So that hasn't been checked since 33w, but I'm not worried. I feel great, had no protein, and have no swelling, and no history of BP issues. And it was low when it was last taken.

    Hopefully he's just low, like you said. Sounds like a pretty good appointment though and it's awesome that you're feeling great!

    I had a real-feeling contraction this morning. It felt exactly like how labor started with DS2 (DS1 water broke) and both my others started in the morning. I spent a while waiting before I realized there wasn't going to be a 2nd contraction. Whew.

    Today I need to deal with the carseats and some baby furniture and get a nap in... just in case. It suddenly feels a lot more real to me!

    very cool. I've had the carseat in now for a few weeks as DH refuses to do them, he thinks I do them better and I secretly agree. Hope you're able to finish your to do list
