    Oh, don't worry...I'm a keep-you-posted-aholic And I have Wendy's number to text when things get real, so she can update in the October board. Feel free to XP here for me if you want

    That said, I'm going to stick with thinking I have at least a few days yet.

    So cute that Adair wants to meet her so badly. What a great big sis she will be. Love the idea of the animal births. You know my friend Kayla. Well she gave me a Bradley method book and her oldest daughter (3) asked to see it. So Kayla just explained that is how babies are born and mommies have to push them out. She was so fascinated with the pictures. I love when parents don't try hide it or make it seem weird.

    Looking low there Leigh. Any day now. I can't wait to know her name!

    If I'm ever pregnant again I wonder if my DS and DD will ask about babies and such.

    I can almost guarantee it, Mel! Start preparing your answers now (In all seriousness, one of our favorite books is "Baby on the Way" by Dr. Sears and one thing I love about it is that it has little text blocks "for the very curious" that you can choose to read or skip depending on your child's age/level of interest. They have pretty great basic explanations of pregnancy and birth in very simple, kid-friendly but straightforward language. Good books always make life easier when it comes to these things... )

    No real news today...we did DTD last night but so far I pretty much feel the same today as the past few days. A few good but very sporadic contractions, very low baby with almost constant pressure behind and just above my pubic bone, only comfortable sitting with legs WIDE...but nothing that makes labor seem imminent. For some reason she is way more active this morning than she has been lately, and keeps giving herself the hiccups! Hehehe...it's slightly uncomfortable for me to have her wiggling around quite so much at this point, but still pretty darn cute.

    I bet if you keep DTD daily it'll get her moving.

    yeah, my DH has missed our usual labor-prep method. I always figure that a month without it is coming up (with the way I tear) so he might as well get some while he can. I just hope the placenta has moved enough that if it triggers labor tonight everything goes smoothly.

    Oh, and I do think it works. I didn't plan to test it this time, but I kind of have. With DS1 I was 1cm and 50% from 36.5 weeks, with DS2 I was 2+cm and 50%+ from 38w. DS3 never got checked, but had him at 38+5. With all of them were were DTD often, including daily after 36-37w. This time (without DTD) at 38w I was 3+cm long and closed. I've had many fewer contractions and early labor signs since 36w than I had with any of the others. I suspect if we didn't DTD I'd easily go past my EDD. I don't plan to test it, though.
