    Just wanted to let you know that even though I should be buried in my exam I've been stalking you ... from my phone ... while I take potty breaks. Having evoked that image in your head, now I'll retreat to lurkerdom with one final "WOOHOO! You're getting there! HB here you come! Luv Ya!"

    You're getting so close! I had a lot of those annoying daytime contractions and not as much at night. I hope baby lets you sleep! I love how everyone calls the house phone when DD is asleep. It never fails!

    I could have written that!!

    I hope they either cut it out or amount to something!

    Me too! I had contractions that were 30 sec long and two minutes apart for the entirety of my final month with ds2. And they did not feel like bh ctx at. all. It sucked. I told my current mw about it, and she said that it means the uterus is aggravated (or something like that, I don't remember the exact term). She told me that if it happened to me this time, she'd have me off my feet as much as possible and give me some herbal supplement that would make the ctx die down if they weren't real. Don't remember what the herb was, either, but maybe your mw would know?

    Hope both of you feel better soon! I guess all I can say is that I empathize!

    I knew you'd be around somehow....but from the bathroom.... that I didn't expect

    I went to Kohl's this evening to walk around during the storm while DH put the kids to bed to see if I could get the ctx to be consistent. No such luck. I only had about 3 while I was there for an hour and now that I'm home (eating ice cream) they're all gone. I'm too exhausted to not be able to sleep tonight. I wanted to nap with the kids but it was so hot in my house due to the spaghetti sauce I had on the stove all day long that I just couldn't lay down without sweat rolling off of me so I gave up. Then after DH got home a huge storm rolled in and the tornado sirens went off so we went down to hang out in the basement and I made DH do some projects So, really no excitement from me today!

    I have my OB appt tomorrow afternoon, bleh!

    I hope it's your last OB appointment! I have to agree that it sucks driving in to pee in a cup, get measured, etc. then leave...and I only have a 10 minute drive.

    I just read through your whole lodge. Now I'm hungry for bacon and chocolate cake. You should have some sort of warning posted!

    I hope that this labor and delivery isn't quite so exciting as the last one.

    I'm feeling very "on the clock" right now. Had my OB appt today which I was NOT looking forward to. Besides it being a complete waste of gas, I knew he was going to have that approaching 40 weeks talk all ready for me and he did. He wanted to strip my membranes which I declined, he wasn't pushy really about it but wondered why I didn't want checked. I just told him it's not something I'm comfortable with. I had a 39 week check with DS several years ago and thought the dr was trying to strangle me through my vagina and it freaking hurt. Since then I haven't had one when not in active labor. He said if I wanted to change my mind he swore he wouldn't go digging around if he couldn't feel my cervix he would leave it be. I told him I appreciate that and it really should be an unspoken rule to not go digging around in a woman's stomach searching for her cervix but I just don't want that information right now, no matter what the number it won't put me in a good place so I'm better off not knowing anything. He talked about how shortly I'll be pushing 41 weeks and we need to have a serious discussion about what our plans are going forward and blah, blah, blah 42 weeks, stillbirth, dangerous, blah, blah, blah. I told him we'd talk next week (if there is a next week), that right now I'm enjoying my last time being pregnant and would really like to wait to think about problems when they become real and not just possibilities.

    DH has been pushing me to go out walking, which I know I need to do, but he's also been pretty frisky lately as well. I know these are the only things in his arsenal to prod things along and he's excited and anxious to meet his child. But it's getting very frustrating. I'm going to talk to him tonight about it. I don't want to be put on anyone's timeline, not his, not the dr's, no one's!!! This pregnancy is very bittersweet for me. This is the last child I will EVER feel kick inside of me, the last time I'll ever grow a baby, the last time I'll ever be excited over labor beginning. I want to enjoy it and not feel like everyone is trying to get this kid evicted. DH had to go to his BIL's tonight so I had him take both little kids, DD1 has v-ball practice so I'm checking out for a bit, which is what I desperately need to do. I need everyone to go away and leave me and my baby in peace to enjoy each other as it should be!!!!! If I didn't think everyone would have a freaking conniption I'd wish for a 42 week delivery but that would be incredibly stressful for me because of everyone else.

    I'm not in a good head space tonight so I'll catch up with you girls tomorrow when I've had time to pout for a while and come back around!

    Aw. I feel for you, hun. I can't imagine what it would be like to know that my pregnancy was the last one! I totally understand that you want to savor this. That's actually how I felt about ds1! I was actually kinda sad about it when labor was over.

    I think you need chocolate.
