    Ooh, I'm so glad the OB stepped up and has decided to take care of you until your regular Dr. gets back! Honestly, if I were you, I think i might prefer to be delivered by the OB, especially since he hasn't mentioned anything about an induction!

    Not sure what I have going on right now, but its pretty painful I am feeling really crampy, tried to time it, but doesnt seem to be close to regular. I am torn between thinking it is contractions, and that it could just be a bowel thing, as I keep having to go to the bathroom as well. I only had one tightening at my NST this morning, so it would surprise me if this is it, but we will see.

    Have a feeling it was an upset stomach paired with some braxton hicks, cause it seems to have gone away now. I am still having 'tightenings' though, but they are back to being mainly painless. I am glad that wasn't it, cause my kids start a short gymnastics program tomorrow, and I really dont want them to have to miss it. So I am back to aiming for Saturday

    Saturday is my birthday, and I'd be delighted to share it with your baby!

    I'm so glad to hear that you're feeling good about your care now. Your OB is absolutely right; delivering babies isn't a normal job. That's why I love midwives, helping babies into this world isn't just their job, they truly embrace the birthing process & their mamas, it's a way of life for them. That's also why I love my HMO. The doctors have regular hours in the clinic and at the hospital, so they can have a life and I don't have to worry that whatever my ailment is is keeping someone from their kid's birthday party or that my doctor is running on 23 hours without sleep because he was in the clinic all day & then called in for an emergency all night & then back at the clinic all day again. That's no way to be providing medical care.

    I envy all you ladies who can have midwives. I didnt know any better with my first, and we dont have any in the area that we live now.

    I am much happier with what the Drs are saying now. I just wish this baby would come out NOW! I never had braxton hicks with my others, and I am finding I really dont enjoy them I am totally ready to have a baby!

    I just got off the phone with my MIL who is supposed to be arriving on Monday to help me with the kids when DH is in court. She cant find her credit card, and still has not booked her flight! This is pretty typical of her, but, oh so, frustrating! We asked her to come that week, as DH cant be home during the day, and I am glad she is coming, but I hope the baby comes soon, since she will be staying until after that anyways, and she tends to drive me a little crazy at the best of times. For example, we asked her to come on the weekend so that DH would be available to pick her up from the airport, but she chose to come on Monday afternoon instead, for no particular reason, which means I will have to pick her up. No big deal as long as the baby hasnt come yet. If I am in the hospital then DH will need to find someone to watch the kids, and to pick her up from the airport, which we were trying to avoid in the first place. And that is providing she actually gets here on Monday, as she still hasnt booked her flight!!!!

    So that is my frustration today Hopefully she will call this afternoon and have everything worked out......that is also her MO, to worry everyone else around her when it is really unnecessary. I am hoping that I am in the hospital for as much of her visit as possible anyways I think that might make me a bad DIL, but............I have no good justification, I am just a bad person.

    I'm pretty sure that doesn't make you a bad DIL so much as a totally normal one! Except for me it would be my own mom, not MIL Hope everything works out stress-free in the end!

    My goodness! My reaction would be that if she can't get there when someone can pick her up, then take a cab! We'll do our best, but if she can't do hers, that's her problem! Don't take responsibility for her inability to plan!

    Sorry about the BH... they aren't always much fun!

    Ditto this! This is the reason why cabs & airport shuttles exist; no one ever wants to go to the airport unless they're the ones flying! Don't go out of your way or create additional expense for yourself when she's unwilling to do her part to help. She's wanting to be there on Monday & hasn't yet booked her flight? That's going to cost her a fortune!
