Karly, you do sound happy and cheerful! Yay for Maternity leave!! I'm so glad for you that you have a great mw!, that you're all set up and ready to go, wo being pressured to go! and I'm sorry about your friend being pressured. Have a super great, relaxing day!
Hi Karly. Happy maternity leave! I loved having about one week off before I had Miles. Very refreshing and gave me time to focus and prepare for birth.
Hope your friend gets the birth she desires.
Happy maternity leave!!!
Ya know, if an OB isn't confident in a woman's ability to birth her baby on her own, s/he shouldn't be an OB. But I know I'm preaching to the choir here so I'll keep off my soap box lol I can understand why that would make you sad though, it's a pitty he's giving her doubt esp. considering she's succesfully given birth on her own twice.
So glad to read your feeling well, that's fantastic!
You do sound great! My dd came at 38 weeks and I was really expecting that with my second pg, but he didn't come until 39 1/2 weeks. Babies come when they are meant to come. Yay for a great appt and maternity leave!
WOOHOO for Maternity leave! Enjoy it!
Karly, I'm so honored to be able to share in a second birth w/ you! I'm just finding time back on here, so I need to go back and read your lodge, but I've missed you!
I know you're going to have another beautiful birth!

Hi Ayelet! I have missed you too. The wonderful support you gave me on my last lodge are words that will be in my heart forever. I am so glad you had time to stop by and I hope Tani and Odeliya are doing well...keeping you busy, I am sure!
I bet you have your little man while I'm on vacation. I just have a feeling that you and Aimee (well I know Aimee will, since her's is scheduled) will both have your baby's while I'm gone!!!
So be ready next week! LOL

Just a fly by to let you know that I am thinking of you darlin and that I simply cannot tell you how much I look forward to hearing about your birth and the intro of your sweet son into your family. You are a beautiful gracious blessed pregnant woman and I simply KNOW with all of my being that you are going to make such a wonderful Mom to TWO!
Aww, thanks Melissa!
I got an email update from my friend last night saying that her NST went well and her baby is now engaged in a good position. That got the OB off her back about the induction for now and they just stripped her membranes. She was having a few contractions her and there, so I am sure she is on her way. I feel so relieved. I just didn't want her last birth to be a medical on, as I know how unhappy she would have been and how much anxiety she was feeling about it. (And I also knew she wasn't really informed enough to stand up to the OB and her DH who is a PA).
Anyway, my MW was right when she said I was too cheerful to have a baby yesterday. We'll see if some walking and grocery shopping helps with my too cheerful mood today.
