    I'm still around I have a midwife apt this morning, but aside from that things have been fairly calm. I tend to get contractions for a few hours each day, but they're still spread out so I figure I'm just gearing up. I've been waiting though, I keep feeling like this one is going to start with a gush of water.. so far no gush.

    I've also been using garlic nightly to try to change my gbs status... we do another culture today, and I'm praying it'll come back negative. I really hate anti's during labor, and I'd like to be able to show up early enough to take advantage of the tubs they have for waterbirth. If I test + then I have to make the choice to have anti's, or show up just in time to push Refusing the anti's is only an option so far as if I do and there's enough time, I no longer qualify to deliver at the birth center.

    Cindy~ I do have pictures, but no time to hunt them out right now I'll try to remember to post some later

    Another day and I'm still pg My apt yesterday went well.. we weighed, measured, listened, palpated for position, and redid the gbs test. I'm really, really hoping it comes back negative. If it does, I'm going back in on friday just long enough to redo the test again. Once I have 2 negative results, then I don't have to have antis.

    Today, I'm knee deep in clothes that a friend gave me for the kids. Her kids are just bigger than mine, so we've been sorting clothes that will fit now, and clothes that they'll grow into, and clothes that my kids won't wear. My goal today is to finish that up and reclaim my living room, lol.

    Thanks I'm almost always online, lol, I rarely close my pg.org window. So I'm online even when I'm not...

    We got the clothes sorted and most put away, still working on putting away the boy clothes, but that's a major undertaking in and of itself. The boys are the same size now, so I need to rearrange the dresser while pulling out small stuff to make room for it.

    I'm not due on the 8th I'm simply due during march sometime..... midwives say I'm due around the 15-17th, I say I'm due the 23rd or so.. that said, we weren't sure we would make it to today. I was having surges from about 7 until midnight last night, good, strong, and 5-6 min apart. Never got closer together though, so I never called, and instead we went to bed. They petered out around midnight after lying there for 2 hours. So far today, I've had a few, but no pattern to be seen.

    Dh and the kids wanted the baby to come last friday, my mom's guess was the 2nd so now that we're past both I figure he can come anytime he wants to, lol. In reality though, I've had all my babies on either the full moon, or the new moon. So that leaves tomorrow, or the 21st.. as being the "most" likely dates. We'll see if it holds up or not this time

    Wedding pics... well, the few I have scanned into the computer

    Oh, I think I saw March 08 and thought March 8th instead of March 2008!
    Great wedding photos!
    I hope all the surges you are having at least mean you are close. I am not having much activity in the uterus. Other than LO's wiggliness.
    That's interesting about the moon...here the nurses say they always get a bunch of moms in labor right before a storm. Anything headed your way?

    I figured that was probably what happened No storms coming.... just my history to go by.

    On a VERY positive note... I just heard from one of my midwives. My gbs test came back - this time, so I go in tomorrow to redo it, and as long as it's - and I get - tests at every apt until delivery I don't have to have the antis Makes me super happy, cause I don't like antis during delivery, and I'm a bit worried that this birth is going to be a lot faster than my previous births so they wouldn't have time to administer them twice anyhow.

    Thanks I'm still waiting to hear back on fridays test. I saw the midwife this morning and they didn't have the results yet. She said I'd get a call if it's positive, if I don't get a call, then I'm negative still and have nothing to worry about Theoretically the results should be in this afternoon.

    We've been busy round here the past few days. It's been gorgeous weather, and dh seems to be on a mission to get me to go into labor, lol. Everyday... "let's go for a LONG walk" "lets do this" "lets do that" And everyday, I've had surges, and still have no baby to show for them. Ah well, I keep reminding him that nothing we tried with ds1 worked either. I seem to be destined to either go early (36 1/2 weeks) with NO indications that I'll be early. Or to have surges for weeks on end before finally giving birth. Since we're past feb 29th, dh's next "best" date for me to have the baby is friday. 3-14, otherwise known as pi day.... Although, if the baby is born on pi day, it kinda defeats the purpose of eating pie just for the date. Makes it so we're actually celebrating something else too...hmmmm.... might have to bring that up with him. I'm inclined to hope he comes before then anyhow, lol.

    I'm still waiting for a "surge" of energy... I haven't had any extra energy thus far though. I'm tired, huge, and the baby's head is soooooo low that it hurts to sit/stand/walk/anything! I'm having a hard time keeping up with the kids and dh as far as housework goes, much less getting more done, sigh. Oh well, I'll get to all the extra stuff eventually right? If I don't do it before the birth, then sometime in the next 6 months I should get a chance to work on it.
