Lodges? anyone need one soon?

Are we missing any lodges we should have? Anyone in August or September?

I won't need mine until September 17th. So close and yet so far away! Smile

yes, 36 weeks unless you have a history of being early or reason to expect you will go early, then a couple weeks before that. Smile

Yeah, no danger there. I already told my work I'm not starting my maternity leave until the Monday nearly a week after my due date, unless, of course, we get a surprise Wink
(I would be thrilled for numerous reasons if she DID decide to come at more like 39 weeks, not the least of which is my DH's week-long vacation inconveniently timed right BEFORE my due date...but I'm definitely not expecting it!)

I will. I'm aiming to have all my important work done by Oct 1 (both at home and work) and just working ahead on the "nice to have done" things after that, so she can come whenever she feels like it and it won't be a big deal!

Leigh I keep checking your ticker! I swear I feel like time is barely moving! Excited for you! I promise I will start a lodge for you at 36 weeks.

Barely moving? How is it possible that you have a FOUR MONTH OLD?!

How's it going, by the way? I remember four months being one of my absolute favorite ages. Still an infant but getting SO much more interactive and fun Smile

Ok your pregnancy is barely moving for me. LOL. My son is growing too fast. He's almost half my height already. Haha. I'm only 5' tall. Henry is doing well. He was super colicky, but at like 3 months 2 weeks, something switched and he has been a lot happier. He's adorable. I kiss him way too much. He laughs and grabs on to me now and is desperately trying to get his toes into his mouth. He's not a fan of sleeping, but I knew what I was signing up for when I started TTC.

So glad you're out of the woods on the colic! I hope it continues to get more wonderful from here Smile

I'll hopefully need a lodge soon. sigh. darn previa.

Elizabeth - I hear you on having a tall son! I swear, that's why I've been asked so many times whether I'm the nanny (well, and I'm a young mom for my area). My oldest is already 4' tall and he's not even 6 yet. eek. I'm 5'4" and he looks huge next to me.
