    Sorry you have had to deal with m/s through the whole pregnancy. That's awful! Glad you are more comfortable with the new dr and hospital. I am like you and if I am not comfortable with a situation I can't bring myself to do it. Like giving birth in our closest hospital unless it is an emergency. Or have my MIL watch the boys while I am laboring up stairs. I just hope and pray Lukus comes before next Friday or waits till after the 24th to come. Or we will have to use my MIL. :-\

    I love getting to the weekly appointments! It does seem to make the last part go by a little bit faster.

    Congrats on your birth lodge, Kristen! I enjoyed reading your stories and can't wait to follow the last few weeks of your journey! You were a HUGE source of encouragement in my last few tough weeks with Laszlo - I'm thrilled to return the favor now

    Colin's coming home outfit came today, yay! I am kinda silly and love to dress my kids up when they come home

    I am going to put the carseat base in tomorrow and then we are good to wait around and be patient (ha!) SIL just hit 38 wks and I am kinda hoping her baby comes soon b/c I think it will be a nice distraction for the next few weeks. I have my 37 wk appt on tuesday and am going to resist my urge to get checked b/c it really doesn't matter if I'm dialated at all. I don't think I will get checked until i'm 39 wks, just b/c my curiousity won't hold out that long lol.

    Wow...reading your first birth story was interesting b/c there were some similar threads to Phineas' birth but your overall experience made mine seem almost like a walk in the park. I understand what you mean about not remembering parts of the birth & shortly after due to being on the magnesium. One of the reasons DH wrote the majority of our birth story was b/c I couldn't remember a lot of what happened. Having skin to skin contact right after birth was so important to me but I don't remember much of it. Pictures taken of me right after birth, I look miserable and not all there. Anyway, I'm glad your second birth went so much better...it gives me hope

    Christina~ I hate the pics with me in them after his birth, i look horrendous!

    'full-term' today, woot! babe's movements are getting slightly painful, sometimes it feels like he's going to rip open his water bag! ds2 is getting over a cold and we are all hoping that nobody else gets it. I would be so bummed if either of my kidlets couldn't come see us in the hosp. Pretty sure I'll be moving my bed to the couch in the next few days. having lot of hip pain and I sleep so much better slightly upright on the couch. Getting so excited for Colin's arrival!

    37 wk appt was nice and boring. No weight gain (yay, i'm big so that's good for me) measuring 35wks and gbs - . Having more noticeable bh's accompanied with shooting cervix pain (fun!) Having a very 'i'm bored wish baby could be here' day. In the grand scheme of things 3 or so weeks is such a short time but like i thought January is kinda dragging !

    we are getting horrible rain/flooding and that makes it very, very easy to not be antsy for this baby to come in the next week. A friend of mine drove the hwy between our town and where our hosp. was and it's pretty bad with a few creeks that are now flowing over the hwy. so a big no thank you to that!

    Love the coming home outfit! Totally worth him dressing up for.
    Yay for hitting full term this week! Hope the couch helps with your hip pain. Its the worst trying to sleep through that.
    Keep him baking till that storm passes so you don't have to be out on the road. We are expecting big rain like that today and everything totally floods. So not fun to be driving in normally and in labor would be even worse.
