    End of next week?! Eek! I do believe in a Mothers intuition, though!!

    I'm glad you had a good weekend. Sounds like Cupcake has dropped a bit for you. Do you feel like you waddle like a duck yet?? Are you putting everything in one bag, or are you bringing his diaper bag? I found that the easiest way, with Callie.

    Happy belated Anniversary!!

    That's a strange answer... because it's tradition? uhm ok... so it's time to break with tradition.... Yes! you be the trend setter! You CAN do a natural child birth in the hosp. Know what you want, ask questions, and stick with your plan. I know you are doing that, just want to encourage you. I've had 6 ncb's

    sounds like you caught that nurse off gaurd! LOL at tradition!

    For me, I plan to get checked. I am WAY too much of a control freak to not want to know. :rofl:

    And we will see if you motherly instinct is right about next week! Thats exciting!

    I'm interested to see is my mothers intuition is right also! So far I haven't been right about anything though! lol! Dh knew I was prego before i did, I thought for sure they would tell us we are having a girl- but they say it's a boy! So what do I know! lol! My mom and Dh have a bet going (they bet on stuff all the time). Mom says I will go before my DD, DH says after my DD (though he is hoping for the baby ASAP). It's a $5 bet so there isn't much riding on it, they just like to harass eachother, lol!

    Kara- I never thought about packing his diaper bag with his stuff. I was figuring I wouldn't need it at the hospital, but that would be a good idea! Thanks!! You know me and all my baby STUFF how does a person limit the cloths, lol! I wish he would drop more so i can breath again!

    I have a question for all you BTDT's.. When they check you what exactly are they checking for? I know to see if you are dialated.. but what else? My SIL (who is the l&d nurse) said they will want to check me sometime to make sure he is head down.. How can they tell that? I thought thats what they felt on your belly for?? They have told me the last few times he is head down with out checking me.. Maybe I need to go read some more...

    Hopefully someone will correct me if I am wrong but they are looking for:
    1) Dialation
    2) Effacement
    3) Station (meaning, how far down in your pelvic cavity the head is)

    For me, I like to know....it just like I checked my self during TTC, I just like to know what my body is doing. I dont *think* it will stress me out too bad if I am dailated and not going into labor or not dailating....its just that knowledge that I like. Like I said: Control FREAK

    How are you feeling today Nicole? I woke up feeling great - which suprised me because I had very interrupted sleep. Marcus was having a series of bad dreams, and kept me up most of the night.

    I'm feeling pretty good today, thanks for asking. Had a pretty good day at work. They are having a mom-to-be shower for me on Friday! I'm excited about that. I do notice I have to sit up straighter to be able to breath better. I have been bouncing on my birth ball some in the evenings that feels good on my back. I'm still lucky I only get up about once a night to pee.

    DH thinks my belly is dropping. I kinda think that also, the 2 pair of non prego jeans I have are fitting alittle diffrent.

    Congrats on your lodge! It is interesting to see how things differ between the UK and most other places. We don't get any internal checks normally until we are in labour (or at least think we are...in the case of false alarms!). My midwife has always been able to tell me position and station from feeling my belly alone. I don't think I would be too happy with weekly internals. When I had a false alarm with ds2, I found it very painful as wasn't in labour and my cervix was still tucked up towards my back. Mind you, things progress different with second or subsequent children I guess.

    first off, I can't believe you are still wearing your non prego jeans! That is awesome! Second, I think I am going to hold off on checks now until 38 weeks. I had one yesterday and it wasn't too pleasant and they couldn't really tell me much from it because my cervix was so high. I think it was wise of you to resist the temptation for now!
