    Hope the Chiro today works wonders for you pelvis. Wow, 3 miles, that is a lot of running at 39 weeks!!! Good idea to save up days at work for after baby arrives. I kind of like working until the end so that it keeps my mind off of obsessing about when baby will come.

    The pain is much better but am waddling REALLY bad now!! I know I have to take it much easier with the running. It is like I get this obessive thing when I step on the treadmill I want to do at least 3 miles and I have a certain pace I want to maintain. It is really stupid but it is like my brain won't let me get off the dumb thing or just walk!

    My 39 week appt went well. GBS is negative, all my blood work (that they ordered for the palpitations) came back normal and I am measuring about 36cm. I am getting very annoyed that I haven't lost ANY plug yet! I know it is stupid but it makes me feel like labor is so far away. Obviously I could lose plug later today and end up having a baby tonight but to me not seeing any of it is now getting discouraging! I really can't complain though because overall I feel great and am sleeping fairly well too. I am very prepared to go over so I am trying not to stress and just enjoy every last minute as this is my last pregnancy (*tear*).


    Here is a pic from yesterday, 39 weeks

    You look great!
    I'm glad the pain is better today. And yay for a good appt. yesterday. I forgot that you said you run on a treadmill. I was wondering if all the neighbors were amazed to see a 39 week preg. lady running past their house...lol.

    Totally try to enjoy your last few days of your last pregnancy. I know its hard not to get impatient but it will happen much sooner than later this far in the game.

    You really do look great! All belly though! Wow! I remember when my shirts would hang open like that at the bottom. My guess is that you are VERY CLOSE!

    Are you or DH planning on doing anything permanent after this kid BC wise? I know I'm not that far from having to say, "this is my last" myself, but, I honestly can't imagine it. You're sad about it too... is it a financial decision, or just what you know is right, but still a tough decision to make?

    Thanks! Yeah I am sure people would think I was a total nut if they saw me out on the street running. Lol

    Thanks! Yea my shirts all hardly fit. If I didn't always have a spandex tank underneath everything I would show skin in half my clothes. I thought the full moon was gonna work its magic but nope!
    I am not sure what we are gonna do BC wise. I am not going to take any sort of pill so my hubs will have to suck it up and wear condoms. We wont don anything permanent at this point. Garrett would go tomorrow and get the big V if I let him but I think 28 years old is just too young to do that. As far as #3I being our last it is a financial/my hubbys sanity reasoning behind it. My husband could not handle anymore chaos! Lol. Each day I feel better and better about being done having babies. Plus my plan is to go to school to be a CNM (as soon as the kiddies are in school full time) so I will get to be around preggos/birth/babies all the time then! Hoping that will fill my needs


    So now for more unpleasent news. As if it wasn't bad enough to get stomach flu at 9 months pregnant I now have pink eye in both eyes!! My kids must have brought it home from daycare this past week. My eyes are swollen/bright red/itch/hurt/feel like they are on fire/and full of goop! I mean seriously this isn't even fair! I got some antibiotic ointment and it is starting to get some what better but wow so annoying. On a much better note I am currently at my SIL hair salon getting my hair cut and highlighted so at least my hair will look good! Lol I would really prefer to keep the baby in another day or so for this to clear up. the midwives take a billion pics at the birth and the last thing I need is some crazy goopy eyes! Lol lol

    Oh my goodness!!!! That is so not fair! I hope the pink eye clears up very quickly for you!

    I agree with you that 28 seems young to make a permanent BC decision. Your family is so cute though...can't wait to see who you're about to add. And who knows, maybe you will get that, "Yes, this is IT!" feeling when you meet this little person.

    I can't believe you have pink eye now. What are the chances?!?! So not fair in the least. Hope it totally clears up quickly and doesn't spread to anyone else in your family.

    Yeah, I agree that 28 is still way young to go get the big V even if you all have decided that this is your last. That will be so exciting to go back and get your CNM once all your LO's are in school full time.

    So do you guys have some boys and girls names (or maybe even 'the' name) picked out for you suprise LO? You don't have to share the names at all. I'm totally having a hard time picking names for our little suprise. We 'think' we have a boy name picked out but haven't a clue when it comes to girl names other than a family middle name that we will use. There seems to be so much more to consider this time not knowing the gender for #3.

    Well I am still pregnant and still trying to get rid of this stupid pink eye! I wills say it is 100% better than it was over the weekend but my eyes are still red and itch. I have had a little bit of mucous plug come out and do feel "crampy" from time to time but nothing consistant. If it is anything like my last 2 I won't have much of anything go on until I am acutally in labor. I have never had to guess when I am in acutal labor so that is good. I am still working (here right now) patients are pretty shocked when they ask me my due date and I say tomorrow! It is pretty funny. I have everything ready to go when it happens so now I just wait. I have an appt tomorrow and I am guessing I will make it to it. I mean I ran 2 miles last night and walked 1 mile and didn't feel a single thing after that! so I think this baby is nice and cozy inside and it may be a few more days.

    As for names if it is a girl it will be Teagan and if it is a boy we are down to Grayson, Mason, Weston, Corbin. My fave is Grayson but my husband isn't in love with it, he likes Mason and Weston best. I am just hoping it is a girl and we don't have to think about it! lol
