    Hi Jenn, I'm afraid I can't answer your questions about the AF but hopefully some of the other more experienced ladies on here can. Keep drinking the water - it's great for you!

    I'm pretty sure amniotic fluid will regenerate, and if you're not noticing any significant dampness or dribbling, I'm sure it's either a very slow leak (if there's a leak at all).

    You're getting close now!

    try sitting or lying down for a while and then get up... if your water did break and lets say baby's head is blocking most of it from gushing out, reclining will give baby a chance to move a bit and then when you stand you may want to have towels around just in case!
    also, gatorade would be a good drink to help replenish fluid...

    hoping it's just paranoia affecting your sense of smell!!

    Hi Jenn-- I found my AF to be a bit slippery...and kind of sweet smelling. Not so much like semen--but sweet (less salty than semen )

    IKJWYM about weird stuff from our hoo ha's during pg (esp this late in the game.) I have plenty of CM and it varies from creamy to clear....so it may just be CM.

    Let us know what they say.

    well, an update: nothing more out of the ordinary. I did the lying down then standing trick, no gushes! and I've felt TOTALLY normal. and I had also read that AF will regenerate, so I've been keeping the fluid intake super-high. so I will mention it when we have our midwife appointment tomorrow and maybe she'll do the litmus strip test just to check on things. it would make me feel better - I didn't use my vaginal EPO last night just in case.
    I'm having some back pain, but I think it's from my desk at work - and it's high up back pain, sort of just below the shoulder blades. so 38 weeks plus and all's well here
    DH was soooo sweet for valentine's day - he knows I've been bummed about my feet swelling so much...so he got me some aveda foot lotion, these booties with microwaveable lavender inserts, and a gift certificate for a peppermint sea salt pedicure! I'm so excited! I may go ahead and schedule that for next week, letting them know that I might have to cancel if I'm in labor...but if I'm not, maybe it will get things moving if the munchkin's ready at all let me reiterate, I'm not in a huge hurry to evict him/her, but I'm not opposed to him/her coming a little on the early side as opposed to on the late side
    ok, time to head home and kick back with those booties and some RRL tea! thanks for all your comments and advice, ladies!!

    The person who does your pedicure might just be able to poke around a little on your pressure points. As soon as I was 37 weeks, I went ahead and had my pedicure and told her to poke away!

    How sweet of your DH . . . could he give mine some lessons?

    thanks for checking in on me!

    All's well, it's just been a fairly lazy few days for me. Friday we had our weekly appointment where we were declared "ready for labor and delivery" by the midwife, who also said everything was looking perfect and that they might do an internal at my next appointment (tomorrow).

    After the appointment we went to a breastfeeding class the birth center offers for free, which went well. I felt pretty horribly queasy during the class, though. Which I later determined was not due to imminent labor but to having drunk 3 large glasses of sweet tea at lunch in rapid succession I hardly ever drink anything other than water or milk, and wanted something a little different. and I was thirsty, so I ended up downing waaay too much sugar. I felt fairly nauseous and generally just kind of off the whole evening, and was really pretty nervous that this was it. So I went and laid down and listened to a cd recorded by my yoga guru, and managed to get relaxed enough to believe that everything was as it should be. and if that meant that baby was coming now, that was ok.

    obviously, false alarm Saturday was great, DH and I hung out, did some shopping, and relaxed. Saturday night I woke up with some moderate cramping, but nothing came of it - and this time around, I was much more at peace with the possibility that it could be something starting. Aside from maybe seeing a tiny bit of mucus plug, nothing else has been happening so far. which is ok

    Sunday was another nice day of relaxing and doing little things around the house. We finally hung a couple things in the nursery, so I think it's officially finished!

    Today is supposed to be my work at home on the dissertation day, and I do hope to get some progress made on that front, but more importantly , I'm going to get my valentine's day pedicure at noon!

    I hope to also catch up some on posts and lodges today...but first, must go get some milk to counteract the reflux from my a.m. OJ...sigh.
