    The nesting sure has kicked in to overdrive. I'm trying to get the house all tidy before the baby comes, but it feels like a never ending task. I just don't want it to distract me from resting or looking after the baby once it's here. Having a baby this time of year sure doesn't help, there's so much stuff coming into the house!

    I'm very curious to meet this baby and discover if it's temperament is as mild on the outside as it is on the inside. This one barely moves compared to how much my daughter moved last pregnancy. Either that or I'm too distracted to notice.

    Still just continuing to have contractions once in awhile. I'm drinking my raspberry leaf tea and nursing my toddler (I'm going to be tandem nursing soon!), so I'm sure both of those are hoping with the uterus toning. I've been thinking about getting my pool inflated though it's a pain to 'store' once it's up. I'm just a little anxious that I'll have a quick labour and things won't be ready when I need them. I can't even remember when I inflated the pool last time!

    I bet it would great fun you and DD to play in when it's up early! If you feel like you need it up it's going to be worth it to walk around it for a few day I'm sure nurseing a toddler isn't going to hurt the contraction situation!

    The pool is up! That was quite a work out. I'm glad it's done though, I hate to think of one of my support people being busy doing that while I'm in labour. Now I just have to keep the cat from using it as a scratching pole. My little girl LOVES the pool, she was climbing all over it as I got it inflated, then she threw her bath toys in and had some fun in there for awhile (without water). It's just a bit too tall for her to easily climb in and out of, so she's asking for 'help!' pretty often.

    The baby's movement has been really zilch today, but I've been having lots of movement over the last half an hour since I drank a sugary drink. I have my 38 week home appointment in about half an hour, so will see what the midwife says then. My Mum tells me that decreased movement is a sign of impending labour! I wish!

    We had to take Desana to the doctors this afternoon because she has a nasty cough. He said she has a mild ear infection and gave us a prescription that we can fill later on if she ends up with a fever or the cough gets worse.

    Midwife is sending me in to the hospital for an NST because of the decreased movement. Just a precaution, but as a homebirther this freaks me right out!

    I'm sure everything is fine but it's better to be safe than sorry! Keep us updated!

    NST was fine. The baby didn't move at all for the first half, then they gave me some juice and got me on my side and there was lots of movement. It was an experience.
