update

I have 3 1/2 weeks before my due date. Had Dr. Apt yesterday where they test for step b. She also checked me and I am.1 cm dialated but head is not engaged at this time. My rib pain from baby is getting worse and worse every day. Either butt or foot are constantly in my rib and it feels like my rib is fractured. I seriously cried myself to sleep last night from the rib pain. I told my boss yesterday that I will be doing very little the next three weeks. My last day of work will be june 21 and due date june 24....unless baby arrives before then. Yesterday was my last bi-weekly apt. From here on out it is every week. If baby is not here by june 21 I am seriously considering having her strip my membranes as I did that with my daughter at 4 days overdue and it worked.within 10 hours. Not to say it will be successful this time but it doesn't hurt to try. Even though u can be dialated for a month at a 1 or a 2 but I am excited because at 4 days overdue with my daughter I wasn't dialated at all.

Other then that.... my lil Emelia will be 2 years old on friday. Still working on potty training.

Sorry about the rib pain. My friend ended up with a fractured rib while pregnant and her dr advised her to take benadryl before bed because she wasn't able to sleep from the pain. And I can't believe you're getting so close already! Hope Emelia has a good birthday on Friday! Is she excited to be a big sister?

I don't think she fully understands that she is going to be a big sister.....

WOW I can't believe you're so close already! Sorry about the rib pain :/ They say subsequent babies often come sooner, so maybe you won't have as long to wait! Kieran was 8 days past his due date and Rowan was 3 days past.

I hope to to God I don't go too far past my due date. But he will come when he is good and ready.

Fingers crossed that you don't go past your due date and don't have to put up with that rib pain much longer.
Any special plans for Emelia's birthday?

We are going to have cake and ice cream at my house for immediate family. Did not want to do anything big this year because I am huge and pregnant and ready to pop.
