    Glad I'm not crazy to think so Still feeling pressure low and central today too, so yay. Hopefully I will get a little closer to my due date this time, at the very least! 8 days over was totally normal, but annoying!

    Hm. So I was reading my old lodge, and it sounds like I was feeling just about exactly the same last time at this stage (with the weird shooting groin pains and even some nausea I totally don't remember!) so I'm guessing this little lady is about on schedule with her sister. If I can get her even a few days early, though, that would be awesome. She IS in a better position than Adair was--has been LOA for a couple of days, which I can clearly tell because of her feet kicking frequently and HARD way over in my far right side. So I'm happy about that. Adair was ROT from 32 weeks on with very little change once she settled there. I'm sure that contributed some to my long, slow labor.

    It's funny that you had trouble telling if she was head down, but can tell she's LOA. I hope she stays in a good position for you!
    I think my baby is mostly LOA/OA, but I'm not completely sure.

    Well, I have trouble telling head from bum but trying fiercely to make a hole out the right side of my body with her little kickers is pretty unmistakable!

    LOL about the feet kicking you so much that you can tell it's feet! I agree that you look much lower this pregnancy.

    So glad DH is better! Love your belly pic. You are definitely lower this pregnancy. Hope she decides to make a timely arrival.

    I have this mini glow in the dark clock I keep by my beside. Its perfect. Fits in the palm of my hand, not too bright so it won't wake the baby and has a nice orange color. I use it sometimes to check if henry is ok. I actually in the beginning kept a nursing basket at my bedside that had all my supplies in it, nipple cream, burp cloth, wipes, water, nursing pads, painkillers (for my tear).

    Nausea is a good sign I think. I had a nausea a few days before Henrys birth.

    Well that's good news since I was super nauseous last night and she feels really low again today. I don't think we'll get a 10-4 birthday, but I think I'll try to get some extra walking in throughout the day (I work in a big university library and it's easy to take some quick laps around the floors ) Had some pretty decent contractions yesterday too, although they were one-offs, nothing regular. I do think we're heading in the right direction, though. My boobs are getting kind of heavy and sore feeling too...getting ready to be of use again!

    Thankfully we got a great night's sleep last night, too. We went out for burgers and Adair fell asleep on the 5 minute drive home at 7:30! DH and I indulged in two episodes of Orange Is the New Black and then slept very nearly through the night. I didn't even get up to pee. Needed that!!!

    Those are all really good signs! I think Sunday would be a good birthday. Adair is 7/6/10 and this one would be 10/6/13. I'm weird but I just love things like that. As much as I didn't want to go even more overdue, I was kind of bummed that Weston didn't hold out for an 8/7/09 birthday.
