looking good! that is too funny about the contractions stopping after the burp.
I feel the same way about this pregnancy compared to the first time. Last time as a FTM everything was magical and wonderful this time...between trying to wrangle DS, not getting to nap whenever I need it, etc. on top of more discomfort than last pregnancy...not as magical. Let's blame it on the rambunctious toddlers!
Last night was rough, baby was flailing around all over!! He was stretching and kicking and rolling! So painful! And there were contractions in there and I was hot and my hands and wrists hurt!! Since the contractions were irregular I was pretty sure it wasn't labor but I was kinda freaked out that he was going to break his water with all the jabbing! Obviously he didn't, but it was one heck of I night! I can't wait to get some sleep tonight.
Tomorrow is February 1, which is the day I have had in mind all along. I'm sure it's jinxed since I want it so bad, but I'm still excited to have made it this far. After tonight I get an amethyst in my mommy-jewelry instead of a garnet!!!
I think I'm gonna go make a double batch of banana pudding. And maybe a chocolate cake. I know it's wrong, but at 38w1d I am past caring! :P
I hope the pudding and cake were delicious.

middle boy 8.12.09 @ 39+4 7lbs 9oz, 21" BFed for 13.5 months
little boy 4.26.11 @ 38+4 6lbs 14oz, 19.5" BFed until 26mo and restarted at 30mo!
baby boy 10.25.13 @ 41+0 8lbs 15oz, 21.5"
8.16.12 & 12.16.12
They were DELICIOUS! I had a tiny bite of cake last night and it was just what I was craving. Then I had pudding for breakfast and waking up at 7 to go watch 2 2-year-olds all day didn't seem so bad. I just got home and I'm sneaking bites of cake when DS isn't looking. :P
I can't get over how active Jack still is. He kicks and squirms and gets his feet right up under my rib cage. Seriously, dude, relax. Should be fin to see if he is this rolly polly when he comes out.
I had a false alarm last night. Contractions were coming consistently from about 5pm till I went to bed at 9ish. And they were the pressure kind with the pinchy, ouchy feeling at the end. DS was being such a pain I called MIL to come help me with him and by the time DH got home from work I was debating calling the mw. Eventually they faded off and I was left with no baby but a very clean house since DH and MIL cleaned up in case it was the real thing. I should have false alarms more often just to get someone o come do my dishes!!
Now DH is all set to have a baby. He keeps talking about calling out of work tomorrow and hoping we get the GBS results today, all assuming tonight is the night. I'm trying to gently tell him it could still be a while. /sigh At least he is excited.
If the baby is coming this week I would prefer it to be today or tomorrow so we could get in to see the pediatrician before the weekend. That is one thing I will miss about having the baby at home vs. the hospital, with DS the pediatrician came to us and checked on him all 3 days we were there.
Today would be a cool birthday, 2/2/11.
Well that stinks about the false alarm. So it is 2/3/11 any change?
