    I think Em's idea is a great one. Being able to labor close by without being AT the center would be ideal, I think.

    That is so sweet that Ally is so excited and helpful! Both girls are essentially oblivious arou d these parts

    I do have a friend and my sister in laws that I can go to in labour but again it is all about timing. If it is in the middle of the night then who knows? I am just going to play it by ear.

    I have decided that I hate the 'is this it?' stage of pregnancy and I am trying my best to not think about labour and the signs. This weekend I started feeling icky which is similar to how I felt before going into labour with Ally. My braxton hicks have also really picked up, I was a little bit concerned that I was having any or couldn't feel them.

    Today I have been feeling off too, I have had a weird head ache today. No pain but weird haze at times, where I almost feel dizzy. I am also really hungry lately and just want to eat junk. Emily - mentioned on fb eating some cheerios and then in her lodge nachos...and I would love if I could eat some right now.

    Tomorrow is a full day of appts in the city. I hope it goes well. It is a hard day because no one naps or only in the car and it makes the evening really tough.

    I never had warnings with either of my labors and I still think the guessing game is just hard! Even harder when you don't have a concrete plan worked out, I am sure. You sound like like you are really taking things in stride though, Melynda. I admire that! Hope you have a great day and the girls are in sweet moods. (And that they have nice early bedtimes for you ).

    I'm sorry you have such a busy day ahead, that can be exhausting. The not-knowing of this stage can also be a mental tax, so I hope you (and me, too!) get really clear signs of labor, so you're not stuck in limbo.

    Today went well and not as frustrating and exhausting as last week. I had the apprentice midwife today and I don't like her as much because she doesn't give me the information as she does stuff. Like what my fundal height is. The appt was good but I realized afterwards that if I hadn't had the girls I might have been able to focus a little better. My bp was very low 92 over something and that might explain my headaches from last night. I wish I had asked more questions about it. I am measuring right on or maybe a week ahead. Baby is doing well. I do need to type up a semi-birth plan. My mw's just want to know what my stance on vitamin k, the eye goop and expectant vs. active management of the third stage.

    Are you doing anything to raise your blood pressure? Mine is better now, but was really low before and I understand how aweful that can make you feel.

    What is your stance on vit k, eye goop and whatnot?

    My BP has been really low (80s-90s/50s-60s) this entire pregnancy but I guess that's normal for me. I don't get headaches frequently. Could have been a fluke measurement but still 92 isn't something to worry about. When they first measured my BP and it was like 90/54 I started googling and from what I can tell (and what my MWs have told me) high is way worse than low. Are you well hydrated? Could be simple dehydration headaches.
