Wow..so I was looking at Kristen's ticker and realized that mine was about the same and I only had 16 days!!!!! Whoa! That's craziness.
We were at a family member's wedding Friday afternoon and Saturday...So it was busy b/c I had to chase DS around. DH was being the videographer, so he was only occasionally available.
Today I am boiling/washing the prefolds that I have and the new flips that I bought.
Tomorrow, we are going to a memorial day party in the afternoon.
I'm not really seeing any progression, in my mind, but I feel like I'm trying to will it off...because I'll still be at work. Which of course I'll be at until 39+ weeks, so I feel like I don't want to do things to get labor going, but I don't want to be ultra late either....oh the conundrum
Sounds like you're keeping very busy!
I know what you mean about not wanting to go too early or too late. It's certainly hard to plan one's work schedule, for sure! I went early last time (water broke at 36w 5d) so I didn't have the waiting game, but I have the feeling that this guy will come late.
I hear that! I am scheduled to work until right before my EDD too, but I don't want to go postdates for a variety of reasons...all more important than missing a few days of work unexpectedly, I guess.
You're getting close now no matter what, though! Exciting!
I'm still working on diapers too---but getting close. How do you wash your covers? I did mine in cold with some other baby clothes and then just laid them on top of the washer to air-dry.
I hear you about swelling in the heat. It's hot here and I'm having a terrible time with it.
Sounds like you're getting your diapers ready. I'm almost done with mine too. I think I have one load left at this point and then prepping my wool soakers. We are all getting so close!
I think my insurance problems are cleared up. The patient liaison called me back and said they reran my insurance and besides my copay, 90% is covered until I meet my yearly deductible, then 100% should be covered.
Kristen, I actually haven't washed the covers yet, but the flip covers say they can be washed in warm/hot and line dried. Since they haven't been "broken in" by LO, cold should be great
Hmm....I have my 38 week appt tomorrow. I don't feel like I've had any changes happening. I haven't dropped, not feeling any regular contractions etc.
But like I said, I haven't been encouraging anything either.
I'll fill everyone in on how it goes.
I'm so glad you got insurance ironed out! No more stress about that.
Have you ever used flip covers before? I just saw them recenlty and ordered one to try but have to wait till baby comes to see how they are. I'm curious to see how you like them.

I bet that's a huge relief to get the insurance straitened out. What a pain. I'm also curious about the Flip covers. I've checked them out at the Cotton Babies store but I haven't bought any yet. I love the BG 3.0s, but I went with Thirsties and Bummis covers instead. I would love to hear reviews though because I could probably use a few more covers.
I have Flip covers too...obviously haven't used them on a baby yet, but they seem well made and the reviews I've read online seem really positive. In the smallest position they fit my Green Mountain organic prefolds beautifully, so...so far so good!
I also am going to order some disposable inserts for traveling--that was a big selling point for me. Flexibilty is what it's all about in my book these days!
GREAT about the insurance!! What a load off, I'm sure.
