    That sounds pretty awesome right now! I would love to go this weekend, but it will probably be nex week sometime ... or next weekend. Still its better all around. My boss leaves for Spain on Thursday so I only have a 3 day "work" week and then I don't have to worry about explaining any abscence to anyone.

    My daughter was born on a Saturday, too

    Do you have one of those paint your own pottery places where you live? That might be a fun mommy/daughter thing. Or stay in a bake cookies, do some crafts, and paint toe nails together.
    Thanks. That pottery thing sounds fun...IDK if we have a place per say but maybe I could pick up some fun things to paint from JoAnns...I have tons of paints from my art days...when I actually had time to paint. Even though they are the expensive kind Im sure we could use them for that, its not like I have time or anything. Thanks for the idea!

    Aww don't be! Apparently, so far all dropping has done for me is make me pee myself. Seriously though, I have still been having irregular contrax but now they seem a little stronger and feel more crampy. Im hoping that means hes pressing on my cervix or something and things will start soon. But no impending signs of labor so far.

    DH came home "late" tonight since he was hanging out with his buddis. It made me mad. He mustve known I was really mad because I didnt even bother to call to see where he was. He came home and attacked me though which was nice, but he probably only did it so I wouldn't be mad at him anymore...Im starting to think he's trying to knock this baby out of me. Which is a complete 180 from where he was last week. Men.

    So after work Juliana and I just kind of hung out. We went to the store and got a rotisserie chicken for dinner (I dont cook Friday nights) and just watched some TV and played around with th camera for a while. I should post some pictures once I get some uploaded to photobucket.

    Anyway, Ill update after my appointment tomorrow.

    Sorry about DH acting like an 18 year old again. I am so glad my ILs are here this weekend b/c it is only thing keeping mine from all the World Cup parties with his soccer buddies. He says it would be "rude" not to spend time with his parents...lol....but partying when his wife could go into labor I guess isn't a problem. What dorks!

    So last night I started having some pretty good contractions around 10ish, they were consistently 5 minutes apart and mildly painful. I timed them for a while and went to bed. I know I was having them through the night, I woke up a lot and tossed and turned but was somehow able to get a good amount of sleep. Anyway, they were still going this morning when I got up which was exciting.

    I had my appt. - my favorite Midwife was there and is on call today, wish I was having him today so she could be there but I don't think so. Still it was nice it was her. I told her Ive been having contrax so she checked me and...

    I'm 2 cm, 80% effaced, and baby is at -1 station! YAY! :yay: I'm so excited that those contrax did something. I measured 36 today, from 39 last week, so baby has definately dropped. I feel so much better knowing that these contrax are actually doing something, kwim? Hopefully we'll have a baby sometime soon - preferable NOWish :giggle: (OK, I know it won't be now but sometime this weekend would be nice).

    She talked to me for a while and told me that her student MW is available for all births, so that if I want I can have them call her in when I go in and she will be able to give me a lot of one on one attention. I think thats awesome expecially since DH was not receptive of the idea of a doula - since she is a student MW I don't think he'll feel like shes taking over his "job" or anything like he did when we talked about hiring someone.

    Anyway, everything else is looking good, so now Im just waiting and hoping these contrax pick up. Theyre probably about 10-15 minute apart now but are more intense. YAY.

    After I picked J up from my moms after the appt. I took her to famous footwear and got her some new shoes. I really wanted to get some shoes too but my feet are soooo swollen. I tried on a 7 (1/2 size bigger than what I wear) and it was still too tight. So I guess that has to wait until after baby comes. Now were home and just finished lunch. Its really too hot to do anything today. When DH comes home from work I think were going to go out to dinner or something. That will be nice.

    You must be tiny if size 7 shoes are too big.

    It does sound like you're close! That's so cool about the student midwife. I bet she'll be a great help.
