Catching up... wow! That baby looks about to fall out in that last picture!! So low!! Hope you're feeling better!!
That cake is lovely. How wonderful that you got a surprise shower. People can be so good, hey?

Looks like baby girl is still working on getting into position. If she keeps going, she's going to just fall right out!
Yay for a surprise shower! A crafty shower has to be the best.
That is awesome that they threw you a surprise shower. That cake looks wonderful. I hope you have an easy trip to and from your dr appt today.
I haven't been on much because work has been so nuts. I am trying to wrap up things before this baby comes, but I finally got to catch up on your lodge. You look great! She really is sitting very low! I can't wait to see her pics when she decides to make her arrival.
Jackie's been quiet today. Anyone heard from her?
Boring 40 week appt! MW was happy to see that the PUPPS is getting better. I keep itch cream on me at all times and reapply as often as needed, so it doesn't look as red since I'm not scratching myself mad. All vitals are perfect. Confirmed Zoe has dropped quite a bit by my measurement (as if we had any doubt lol). No internal, which the MW was happy to see someone informed about how it won't tell when you go into labor. She assumed no internal, but did ask. Zoe kept kicking and shifting just enough to make getting her HB difficult. MW asked Zoe to stop moving so she could just get a number for her records. The MW I saw today and my favorite MW are the two on call for the rest of this week and the weekend. So now is a great time Zoe to get the MW that we love! 41 week appt will be Tuesday due to the holiday (kinda expected that). Will be an NST in office, quick u/s, and meeting with an OB to go over results. I told DH he has no choice but to go to this and screw his training. His commander is annoyed apparently. I get that DH is behind, but if anything is up they'll send me across the street to the hospital. Not a great thing for me to do alone with Aiden! Not too worried about hitting 41 weeks and if for some strange reason I do it's the OB I talked to about the VBAC and RCS risks earlier in pregnancy. He was very clearly pro VBAC then and today's MW assured me that he's not one to get paranoid unless there's truly something concerning that would even make her paranoid. She'll also be the MW in office that day if I want to talk to her about anything. I feel good about Tuesday if that were to happen. But I'm doing lots of visualizations and positive affirmations that I AM going to go into labor tonight and it'll be a fantastic VBAC. I'll repeat this every single day if need be!!!!

And in case you're wondering you'll get seated and served really fast at a restaurant (even though there's a wait for everyone else) if you admit that today is your due date. Pretty sure having the toddler in my arms helped.
