Thanks ladies for all the kind replies! The last few days have been no fun..I have been sick with a cold, but I think today it is finally clearing up a bit! DS has been sick for a few days also now. I guess I am glad we are getting through our first colds of the season early though before LO arrives! I think it would be peer torture to have a cold while being in labor!
I think I have decided to see the OB just one more time! I hope I am not tempting fate by doing so, but feel it would be good to get a copy of my latest tests. LIke I said I also want to get checked to see in comparison to DS at 37 weeks where I am. I am SO curious to know when I will go into labor. My midwife said she will check me at any point if I want her too, but I know it's not necessary so I feel silly asking...I think after this week I wont ask to be checked again until more like 39 weeks if nothing is happening by then!
DH found out he has a fly out interview out of state for a day and a half October 29th and 30th....so we are hoping she is here by then for sure! If I don't start showing some signs in the next few weeks (bring on some contractions) of labor starting I am going to start doing something about it...I don't know what yet, but I will think of something! I don't remember any hard contractions with DS, just a few hard BH, but I also didn't go past this week of pregnancy with him either, so I'm hoping my body starts doing something here!
Hope your little comes before your dh flys out
I had an OB appointment again on Thursday and decide to let them check me. I am 1 cm/60%/and baby is -2 station. I really hope she isn't settling in for too long! I want her to come in about a week and a half...haha like I get to choose that huh? I am still taking the EPO, and RRLT(pregnancy tea)...I have yet to feel any painful contraction though! I am kinda worried about not feeling any contractions yet...I hope it doesn't mean I am not progressing! We have gone on walks etc and I feel my tummy REALLY tight, but never anything even close to painful or timeable...I am begining to wonder if I will be pregnant for 42 weeks this time!
I didn't get contrax with DS until after my water broke, then out he flew! Hopefully you'll get lucky and not have to deal with all the pre-baby contrax. that seem to be driving a lot of moms nuts right now! YAY for 1cm/60%/-1!! You're on your way!

What a great intro! I hope that you are able to get the natural homebirth that you are hoping for!
I hope that LO decides to show before DH has to leave for his interview. DH was supposed to go on a business trip around the 25th of this month but luckily they decided he didn't need to be there considering that we have a baby due the next week.
