    My kiddos are starting to get excited for their brother to be born. It's pretty darn cute.
    My MIL has called me THREE times today. This is the due date and I guess that's why. She talked to DH briefly. I don't feel like talking. What am I supposed to say?? Yes, I am fine, yes I am still pg, yes, the baby is fine, No, I am not going in for an induction.
    I swear, EVERYONE asks me that! It is driving me crazy! This is the due date, and why should I go in for an indcution because the baby did not come by now? People are so conditioned for that. It's nuts.
    Done venting. I had a really good day, cleaned a ton, ran my errands, fed the kids and put them to bed. Now I am ready to relax.

    {{{Hugs}}} I can totally relate... I had people asking me when they were going to induce when I was 36 weeks.... And I didn't even make it to 40 weeks.

    Well the only thing that happened today is the hemorrhoids got worse and are now bleeding. Gee that is so pleasant.
    Since the kids went to bed I feel TONS of cxns, which I haven't felt this frequently since Monday. It's like my uterus took a little spring break. Just waiting for them to get stronger of course.
    The other exciting but stressful thing is that someone wants to look at our house next week (we aren't on the market yet, but of course we would sell it by owner if they wanted it) and here we are waiting for baby!
    Hopefully in the morning my veins (the nice term) will have settled down and I'll be able to move around better. There are some "hot spots" around the house that need to be straightened out.
    I would like for either that or labor of course.
    Maybe now that Leigh is having hers, mine can come!
    The kids have been talking to baby brother through my stomach, encouraging his birth. Maybe he wants to come out and play. But he has the best hiding spot right now! And nobody can tickle him!

    I'm feeling you with the veins!! Are you taking anything for it? I'm on metamucil, prunes and pear juice - yummy......

    Are you getting enough time off your feet? I know that makes mine worse. You should be resting anyway, you deserve it with 4 kids and being so pregnant!!

    Am going to make sure I check in on you, I hope it all starts soon for you!

    Thank you Vicki, I think I will pick up some prunes and stuff tonight.
    I know I don't get enough rest time and that makes it go in cycles. Oh well, can't be too much longer I guess.
    My 5 year old's birthday is tomorrow and she gets so tickled when I say maybe brother is waiting to be born on her birthday.
    I worked really hard today and plan to keep working hard tonight. The house is looking great. Poor DH really is stressing though. It will all be ok I tell him.
    I am surprised how calm about everything I am feeling despite hormones, etc. I feel very blessed to have a calm feeling. Is that what you call the Bubble of Peace? I really think I have it.

    Default This could be it!

    Good Morning!
    I have been up for over an hour and have some pretty uncomfortable contractions going on. For sure different than my cxns were even yesterday. Hurts all around the back and down my legs a bit. I am really bad at timing them but my best guess is about every 4 minutes.
    I just woke up DH so he could shower and then I will. I will call my mom to come over when I am SURE, but I am pretty sure it will be today.
    Yay! And my OB is back from vacation today! YAY!
    Now we just need a NAME>>>>
    I can't wait to meet my little guy!!
    And thanks to everyone who helped with with the induction thread. I think these cxns are a pretty good case in my favor

    I just finished reading your induction thread and wanted to pop over here to lend my support. My little girl came at 41 weeks 3 days and she was healthy and beautiful. Wishing you some easy labour vibes and a quick, wonderful birth. Good for you in sticking up for your right to birth on your own.
