very exciting! Try to get a little rest once your mom arrives!

Sounds like it is getting closer to D-day for sure!

How are you feeling today?
Well, I'm still here! My mom got here on Wednesday and we've been really busy cleaning the house. Our landlords wanted to do a walkthrough/inspection of the house and that was supposed to be done by today, but we couldn't get a hold of them so it hasn't happened. But at least the house is pretty clean! I don't really feel any closer to having a baby though...and tomorrow is the "official" due date. Both girls were born on Sundays, so maybe tonight! She's really moving around right now - pushing on my cervix...very fun. Well, whatever helps, right?
So...I'm hoping something will happen tonight, but I'm not counting on it!
You are getting there! I always feel at the very end of my pregnancies that it's never going to happen. Makes no logical sense, but there it is.
It will happen for you very soon!

Nothing last night DH and I have DTD the past 2 nights and nipple stimulation...and pressure points...haha. I guess this baby just isn't ready! Last Sunday I had a couple contractions where I could feel things opening up...it was a very very strange feeling. Today I had one - I thought things may have progressed from there, but no luck.
So, my mom is here until Wednesday morning. I'm thinking that now that I'm past my due date, I can finally relax enough and just accept still being pregnant...haha. I hope that the baby comes before then, but I'll probably go into labor that night!
My mom has been great. She's an awesome motivator. We've cleaned up practically the whole house, she takes care of the kids, cooks dinner, it's been nice to have her around!
Jonny (DH) told me to just assume the "worst" - that I'll be pregnant until September 3 (which is the longest they'll let me go). I told him I didn't want to get there, unless it's early in the morning, because I don't want to be induced! So...September 2 is my new due date, I guess...lol.
I've been taking Dr. Christopher's Birth Prep pills for the past 3 weeks. What I read about them before said to take 1 pill/day the first week (you're supposed to start at 34 weeks), 2 pills/day the 2nd week, 3 pills/day the 3rd week, etc, until a max of 6 pills/day. Well I just read the back of the bottle today and it said the 3rd week on you take 2 pills three times a day (for a total of 6 pills). Soooo....I jumped from 3 pills yesterday to 6 pills today. Maybe THAT will do it...hahaha. Probably not.
You're still well within the range of normal, hopefully your baby will come soon but I'd be surprised if you made it to September
