Something you want to share (good or bad!): I was terribly sick yesterday (my gross "popcorn disease" again). I took the kids to church then came home and napped for most of the day. Didn't eat anything all day until about 9 pm when I felt up to eating a little piece of cheese bun and some grapes. Hoping today is better!

Any signs of labour? Naw baby is low and head is "right there" per the doc but no dilating and I doubt I'll go really early not that I'd complain if he came next week!

How much weight have you gained? OY. A LOT LOL I did last preg too, oh well

Are your hospital bags packed? No....but the room is almost done just need a crib mattress!

Something you want to share (good or bad!): Nothing exciting here....just eager to have my baby in my arms!

Baby's Name: Carter Matthew

How old is baby? 6 days

Are you BF? How is it going? Yes. My milk supply is steadily increasing. However due to my tear and the amount of swelling in my bottom it is difficult to get in a comfortable position for baby and me. So I'm pumping and feeding him that way until I can sit comfortably. He nurses sometimes but it frustrates both of us because we can't get a good position right now. I'm hopeful for next week.

Getting much sleep? I'm getting plenty of sleep actually. Waking up to take care of him is something I look forward to.

Your favourite thing about your Sweet Potato: His sweet baby smell, the little noises he makes, his smiles when he has gas (lol), and most important- the snuggle time! I can't get enough of him!

Any signs of labour? Uh, no... except I had lose BM this afternoon which was really odd. And more braxton hicks, as of yesterday they are a little uncomfortable, and my back is slightly tender, boobs too... probably all in my head.

Next appt: Tomorrow at 40 weeks

How much weight have you gained? I dunno.

Are your hospital bags packed? This afternoon - finished up after my episode in the loo

Something you want to share (good or bad!): My favourite MIL (I have two as DH's parents divorced, this one technically SMIL) has volunteered to come stay whenever we need, if we like (we like we like!) We're to just call & she'll get on the ferry or plane so she can help, she will cook meals for us, take care of the dog, entertain DD, whatever we need. She's a gem, she makes up for my own mother. Smile And she is a flippin gourmet cook. Today she has got shingles which is not dangerous for anyone except a newborn - so, asked me not to have the baby till Friday when she's officially done her medication and can come as planned, non-contagious. Friday sounds about perfect to me Biggrin
