    Sooo...I got up to go to the restroom in the middle of the night, realized my phone had never gotten turned back on, which means I had no alarm to wake me up. I went to turn it on, dropped it, and broke the screen so that the display no longer works...No bueno when your phone is all touch screen! I'm ordering a new screen in hopes that it will fix it, but it won't be here til Monday more than likely. Ugh.

    Kati - Sorry about your DR. Sounds a little scatterbrained. Holidays getting in the way or something?

    Jana - Bummer about your phone!

    Jules - sent you a PM with FB info.

    Roxi - Feeling any more ready for your exams. Good luck tomorrow and Thursday. I'll be sending good thoughts your way.

    Steph - I think we are all anxious for our babies. You're in good company!

    Maddie - How are you doing?



    My big concern right now is that I tested + for GBS. I have refused and refused and refused so much as a hep lock while I'm giving birth, and having been concerned about it because I go so fast. (My first was 5 hours and the OB missed it. My second (3 yrs ago) was born in 45 minutes, and was born unintentionally at home because we didn't even make it out the front door.) However, being + for GBS throws a wrench in things. I know that mamas who are + are hooked up to an IV and given anti biotics to protect their babies while being born. However, my births are so fast, that we would barely be getting an IV up and running before Baby Girl is born, and therefore she wouldn't be getting any of the ABs that would have to travel from the IV through my system and into her little body and be ready as she moves through the birth canal. My MW stated that since I birth so quickly, she knows the IV ABs ahead of time probably won't make it. When that happens, the baby has to stay in the hospital for a minimum of 48 hours after birth to be observed for any signs of infection. IF there are any signs, baby is immediately given an IV and ABs. I hate the idea of my newborn having an IV, but I understand it would be helping her.

    So here is what my thoughts are
    1) I trust my midwife, and her experience, so do I continue with what she and I have discussed all along, and simply call the ambulance as soon as I realize I'm in labor?
    2) Do I try to schedule an induction (UGH!) which I would absolutely HATE, and would open doors to all sorts of other possible complications?

    This is my last pregnancy, and I have really really worked to plan for a birth I can be happy with. But now, I have this huge issue. I feel that I could make the choice to go with option two, but even that doesn't guarantee she won't get sick, it doesn't even guarantee she would be protected from getting sick. So is it worth throwing my entire birth plan out the window when it may not help her at all? Ugh, I'm so frustrated, and so confused, and so irritated. I feel quite helpless to be honest. I feel my body could make my baby sick, and -- bring on the guilt.

    I'm sorry to hear you are GSB+. I am too. :/ Hmmm.... i don't know... Definitely call the ambulance if you feel like you might be in labor... or maybe talk to a neighbor and see if anyone can give you a ride right then that way you get there faster... When on the phone with ambulance you might wanna tell them about the need to get to the hospital quickly because of quick labor/gbs+ It might be good to set an induction as well though... :/ IDK darling sorry.

    Kati- I'm sorry about your dr... That totally sucks. I wouldn't feel very happy either!

    Jana- totally sucks about your phone. I'm sorry. I have an iphone so it's really important not to crack my screen too. hang in there! I hate being without a phone.

    Roxi- good luck on the exams!

    Jules- I'd join a group on fbook. I'm on my april blossoms group for my DS

    Steph- I'm totally feeling anxious about getting baby out. I feel like I'm in this weird limbo....

    I'm doing okay.... Today my contractions have kind of picked up again... TONS of pelvic pressure when walking around. I feel like I might be in early early labor.. but i can't tell. His butt hurts my ribs... :/ Tomorrow is my dad's birthday.. it'll be funny if I go into labor tonight and have him tomorrow.

    Doc sent me to L&D again today because of the cramps & contractions but was a false alarm. But it was the last straw for my reserves to cope with exams and the rest of this pregnancy so I've decided not to write. I'm going to ask my doc for a letter to the college about the troubles I've had which will then let me request that I get to write next year instead. Unfortunately it will only be in May/June if they let me... and I'm not sure I am able to cope with all stress again but with a little baby this time... but at least it will be an option. I am also going to do the barest of bare minimums from now until the baby is born and anything I can't deal with we will have to get some help in.

    If you're willing to do an induction couldn't you get put on the antibiotic IV for a while before actually starting the induction process? That way you're ensuring that you and BG get enough of the ABs before she pops out....

    Marie I would schedule the induction. That way you can be sure to get all or most of the antibiotics in you and the baby. I had it with Sydney and went in around 9am and didnt have her till after 6pm I was able to get all the antibiotics in long before she finally came(contractions stopped after my water broke) and had to up the pitocin with me to get them going again. My cousin had it with her son and he ended up getting sick and being in the NICU for a day or two. Hes 2.5 now and you can not tell he was ever sick.

    As for my dr I think its the stress of the upcoming holidays, the practice, his family and everything else he is tryng to get done. Who knows....

    This afternoon I had been sitting working on my reports for about a hour and when I stood up it felt like she was going to drop out of me she moved down alot. So tonight Im taking it easy and did for the rest of the afternoon. I just need to make it to friday when my dad will be back in town and will be able to watch my other kids. If I have her before then idk what I will be doing with them......

    Sorry to hear things are still "not happening", Maddie. But at least it gives Dax more time to bake.

    I am so over being pregnant now. Just let me hibernate until this baby is born and I will be a much happier mama.
