    Hang in there, Mindie! ***hugs***

    I didn't know about your other births, either. I hope this one is everything the two of you could ever want.

    Whoo Hoo, I can suddenly breathe!! I am guessing he has gotten the hint that it's been long enough. Now my bottom half hurts a lot. I had some EWCM yesterday, but not much to write home about.
    Had an ultrasound Thursday and the guess he is in the 8 pound range. And he is ROA! My biggest baby so far as only been 6lb, 10oz. I know late ultrasounds can be off by a pound or so, but still..His head alone was measuring 40weeks and 1 day!! The only part that was measuring at 37 weeks was his thigh bone.
    The perinatologist was cool as hell when I "came clean" about the homebirth. He said there is no medical reason or anything wrong with the baby to give me a reason why I can't and he was happy that I have really done my "homework". I have never had a baby doctor tell me that!
    The midwife is coming today for my home visit and to make sure everything is ready and in order.
    I am in such bliss right now!

    It sounds like he has dropped! Yay!

    That is cool that the peri was supportive of your homebirth plans! Don't worry about him measuring big, your body knows how big of a baby you can birth!

    I feel you - this one was measuring 39w4d at my 37 wk scan. But we can do it!! Yay for ROA, baby dropping out of your lungs, and a cool peri! Not too much longer now!

    Home visit went great. She doesn't do internals so I have no idea if I am cervically changed or not...Hmm, She said she can feel his head NOT engaged in my pelvis when I am laying down, but when I stand I can most definitely feel and see the difference.
    I was kinda disappointed to wake up this morning still pregnant. I have been handling this whole thing great (worked with a physical trainer up until Oct 30th) but now, I feel emotionally and physically drained. DH has to work tomorrow and the thought of being here alone with my 2 toddlers scares me to death. I have made it this far without b*tching too much about the discomfort, but now it is all out painful at times.

    Taking care of two toddlers are the end of pregnancy is my idea of torture, so I understand completely.

    Hope baby comes soon!
