    Ooooh, BH are good! Every little bit helps even if she doesn't arrive today.

    What's your notification plan, here? Do you have a birth buddy and will you be sending texts?

    Agreed--you really NEVER know! I was one of the annoyingly slow ones and had ramped up BH's for about 2 days before Addy finally got serious about making her appearance at 41 weeks. My BFF who just had her baby never felt a single BH, never had any sign of anything happening AT ALL, until one night she woke up with a contraction and BAM, she was in labor. Due date baby nine hours later!

    My guess is Wednesday. Sorry that's not convenient with your appointment, though. Maybe you'll go into labor on the way up and save a trip?

    Claire is my buddy from the Nov BB and I have her number. Plus I have Anna's. Plus there's FB messages. Just promise no squealing in excitement, posting, and tagging on FB. And if nothing else my BFF WILL know what's going on even if things go sour and she can update here (her name is Beccasweet).

    So the BH died out when I went to bed. Woke up feeling perfectly boring as usual. Woo.

    My 3cm friend from college I posted about? She did go into labor on her own in the middle of the night and I'm petty sure had her son a bit ago this morning! Glad she did go on her own and wasn't induced (I was fearful of that happening with Thanksgiving and her EDD being Friday). Though I can't help but look at my tummy and go "Really Zoe?! This boy's EDD isn't even here yet! Can you take a clue?" 9 days till 42 weeks, so she's got plenty of time still at least.

    I'm happy for your friend, but I can understand your annoyance, too. I shared a due date with DH's college roommate's wife, but our kids are a month apart because she had hers at 37 and I had mine at 41.

    I guessed Wednesday because you sound like where I was on the 4th of July. Having just enough BH to get hopeful/mildly excited, only to have them die out and feel like I'd be pregnant forever again a few hours later. Hang in there!!

    Just noticed a bit of pink spotting. Feel like it's just another small sign that leads to nothing. Ha ha. OH well eventually something real has to happen right? My BFF thinks I'm going to have a short labor because of how much time my body is taking to prepare for labor this time and I keep having all these little good signs.

    Oh and DH? He hates my friend's husband and told Zoe before he left today that she has to wait until tomorrow to be born because he doesn't want her to share her birthday with his kid. Seriously?!

    Trying to find someplace to go and walk around today. Hoping that Aiden will nap in the stroller. More and more he seems content with this. Just not sure if I can manage the get the stroller out without pain. ha. But it's not like I can throw him up into a cart effortlessly either to say the least.

    OOH! Spotting is definitely a good sign. I think that means some dilation/mucous plug loosening is starting to happen.

    I redouble my prediction of a Wednesday baby. Although I would be thrilled to be wrong as long as it's in the SOONER direction

    Hurray for pink spotting! I think your BFF may be on to something with the quick labor as your body seems to just be giving you all these little teases. As much as it doesn't give you time to rest, at least you're getting a more rested child with DS sleeping in the stroller. Hopefully it's encouraging Zoe to consider coming soon too!

    Oh and if Miss Zoe is born today, DH will forget all about the guy he doesn't like. Her birthday will obviously trump his so he can get over it.

    I think pink spotting sounds very promising! I mean, that has to mean SOMETHING! I am so excited for you to go into labor. I hope that this labor is very smooth and easy for you, but I really believe it will be. You are so laid back about the whole thing that I feel like that just has to transfer to your body and to Zoe.

    I walked for 2.5 hours this afternoon. I went up and down every single aisle at TJ Maxx, Ross, and Bed, Bath, and Beyond. I even walked from one end of the shopping center to the other and back again. Aiden slept for a good portion of it. The pressure I had yesterday came back and oddly enough feels like she's lower? Seriously doubt she can get any lower without just plopping out though.

    Okay, I'm going to be lazy mom and order a pizza for DS and I for dinner. And clean. Maybe Zoe wants to come home to a clean house. Which it's not. lol
