    Welcome to your lodge! I'm so impressed with the number of August mama's on the BN board. It's making for an exciting time over here!

    Hello, Hello!!!!

    Thank you everyone for the welcome! This will be my... 4th lodge... I'm sure nothing much has changed, other than the perspective of time and the consequential lack thereof!

    I will try to get some things organized and typed up when I get a chance, but just thought I'd stop in and say 'Hi' since Gardenbug told me that I had a lodge.

    Yes, I think I am the "last" of the August group, but since I have a history of babies being early, we'll have to see whether I'm actually last to go. Midwife thinks 'boy' because of heart rate (120 at yesterday's appt), and both Reed and Leo were 37wk 5d, and 37wks. Personally, I'm hoping for a little longer, but we'll just have to see. Ivy was 40wks on the dot. As the MW joked a couple appts ago, maybe I should get an ultrasound just so we have a better idea of when baby will be born, and when she should take her holidays!

    Sorry it;s been a while - It was really hot here yesterady and I was just exhausted from the time I woke up.

    On the other hand, DH put up the back gate (we haven't had one on one side of the house for about a year), with a latch that the little ones and the dog can't open, so we feel a little safer letting the kids go out in the back yard to play while we were in the kitchen!

    Also, our electrician neighbour came over and he and DH re-wired the hot tub. It hasn't been wired for 2 months and that's where I plan for the birth to be. By last night it was up to 35.5 C, so we're almost there! Just need to to tweak the temperature to get it to 37C.

    As for names... DH and I actually have some ideas! That doesn't mean we'll be any quicker on the final naming!

    OK, everyone expects the whole long story… and I should go back and summarize my previous 3 birth stories, and how DH and I met, but I’m not going to do that right now. Here’s a brief summary:

    - DH and I met in 2005
    - DH has a son (Skyler) from a previous marriage – now 13yo
    - We got married Sept 2006
    - DS Reed born Father’s Day 2007, 2 days before my birthday and 2wk2d early. Water broke at 1am, screaming DSS and his friend throughout the day that I almost strangled, active labour started at about 1:30pm, born at 3:51pm, in our back yard hot tub, 6lb, 0oz.
    - DS Reed passed away Sept 2008
    - DD Ivy born May 2009 on her due date after about 3 episodes over the previous 2 weeks where we actually called the MW because contractions were 4-5 mins apart, only to fizzle after 3-4 hours. Ivy has been an opinionated and active troublemaker since then! Water broke at 1:30am. Active labour started at 3:30am, born in birthing pool in sunroom at 5:15am, 7lb 3oz.
    - DS Leo Sept 2, 2010, at 37 wks on the dot. Water trickled at 6:45am and continued all day, but no contractions all day. (And now I can’t remember clearly so it may be wrong). Midwife came by around 6pm, still nothing. Left at about 6:45pm. Active labour started around 7-7:30ish. Called the MW back. Leo born about 8:45pm, 6lb 6oz.

    So, here are the patterns so far (watch none of it hold):
    - if it’s a boy it should be early
    - birth day generally starts with my water breaking, then nothing for a while
    - Once active labour starts it’s fast, intense, and short (and getting shorter each time)
    - Midwife is generally there with about 2-minutes to spare!
    - Babies are generally small

    As for what’s been happening recently. I had a midwife appointment last Friday (July 27). Baby is head down and engaged (has been since 32 weeks), mostly to my left. BP 97/60 something. Baby is very low, measuring at 32 weeks (I always measure small). Heart rate 120 – MW says ‘boy’, DH says ‘girl’. I just can’t decide. I was sure girl early on, but just have no idea at this point. I have a preference for either! I think DH is actually hoping for girl slightly. He always had a slight preference for boys prior to Ivy, but he has commented on several occasions about how much it surprises him how much he’s enjoyed her way more than he ever expected. She’s a bit of a daddy’s girl right now and he loves it! Just found out that I was vit. D deficient back in February (not surprising in the north!), but I’m sure I’m not now since I’ve spent the past 2 months in the garden! I’ll have to watch out for that in the future, though.

    Other than that, my MW is planning holidays from Aug 10-20… She’s hoping/thinking baby comes before she goes, but who knows. I hope baby waits until NEXT week at least. Right now I have a bit of a cold. On the other hand, I had minor contractions all night last night… couldn’t decide if they were real or not. They are definitely more noticeable than the tightening from Braxton-Hicks, but not really worth talking about. All low and periodically in my back. In fact, I don’t think I told DH…

    That’s all I can think of right now!

    Oh! Friday should be my last day of work!
