When's that baby coming out? PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE COME OUT SOON! 6 days overdue. Induction will be on Friday if he's not here already.

Any signs baby is on its way? Not really. I have about 6-7 contractions every day. They are about 2-3 hours apart. I'm very uncomfortable, but nothing major is going on. I had a bit heavier discharge this morning but nothing like a mucous plug or blood came out.

What are you wearing these days? I have 1 pair of jeans that fit, then I spend most time at home in yoga pants or sweat pants. I have about 3 shirts that are still long and stretchy enough.

Anything left to do before baby comes? Nope, just add the last minute things to the hospital bag (camera, cell phone, chargers, etc). I keep cleaning my house and then it slowly gets messy again LOL. This waiting sucks!

Is your name choice finalized? LOL, I asked this because I was wondering if anyone else hadn't decided yet either! DH and I never really decide for certain until after baby is born. We have 2 or 3 choices, and I think we both know what we are leaning towards, but we won't decide until after he arrives.

Something you want to share? I want a baby!!!! Not a belly!!!! I have terrible insomnia. I just lie awake all night turning from side to side. I should start getting up and cleaning bathrooms or something.

When's that baby coming out? gosh, who knows! i've been hoping for a due date baby so i can enjoy thanksgiving with my family. i really would like that. but i'm feeling really crappy! i have a doc appt tomorrow and we'll see where i am. i was 2cm last week. wonder if i still will be??

Any signs baby is on its way? don't know! i feel so much pressure and just feel so...yucky. but i've never gone into labor spontaneously so i'm not sure what to be looking out for (you know, besides those lovely and painful contractions!

What are you wearing these days? i have a pair of sweats on right now with a big sweatshirt. i taught mommy and me class today in a pair of maternity corduroy pants that were killing me! couldn't wait to get them off! if i DO make it to thanksgiving, i'll be wearing black stretchy pants and whatever shirt i can fit over my body!

Anything left to do before baby comes? nah, i guess not. i'll shove my phone and chargers and camera in the hospital bag when the time comes. i really didn't do all that much for this little baby but that's mostly because we've been showing the house and i didn't want to put the swing and pack n play out yet. DH can do that at home once the baby comes.

Is your name choice finalized? not really - i'm sure we'll go back and forth after he arrives - just like we did with thomas!

Something you want to share? i've been indulging in nyquil or tylenol pm for the last couple of nights. i've been so desperate for sleep. i asked the doc about it at my last appt and he told me that at this point, you just gotta do what you can to sleep. i love him. it's helped a little. i won't be sleeping for so long after the baby comes that i just HAVE to get some rest now!

When's that baby coming out? Hopefully VERY soon (and naturally). No later than Turkey Day.

Any signs baby is on its way? Contractions are more frequent. Other than that, he's sitting comfy as if he's got all the time in the world!

What are you wearing these days? Whatever I can fit in. God bless yoga pants.

Anything left to do before baby comes? Everything. Still working. House is a mess. But, whatever doesn't get done... oh well!

Is your name choice finalized? Yes. Langston.

Something you want to share? The sheer stress of this waiting game should be enough to induce, but apparently, according to my doctor, my uterus doesn't seem to realize that it has birthed a child before. All I want is a few centimeters... is that too much to ask?!

When's that baby coming out? Never? Tonight? LOL I have moments where I feel like such crap I think he MUST be on his way then I feel totally fine and assume I'm imagining the crap feeling.

Any signs baby is on its way? No major contractions, BHs, tightening, a little back discomfort but nothing I can time or I think is "it"

What are you wearing these days? Whatever I can jam my giant self in to. I have like 3 shirts for work and wear them weekly. It's sad. At home old t shirts of DHs and pj pants. I'm lookin' hot

Anything left to do before baby comes? Not really.....

Is your name choice finalized? We have gone back and forth and not really talked about it with family which apparently according to my mom today hasn't gone over well with them - whatever - but I'm 99% sure it will be Rory, Rylan is still the other 1%

Something you want to share? I'm definitely a member of the I want a baby not a belly club!

Copy and cut isn't working!

Maya is four weeks tomorrow and as calm as can be. She's gained a pound since her birth and I'm feeding her a bit more often during the day to speed things up. She does between five and seven hours at night, feedsfor ten minutes then drifts right to sleep for another three or four (the dream baby!!) she's started to lift herself up more and more and follow movements and sounds with her eyes. We also see a lot more arm and leg movement.

It's my birthday tomorrow Smile

How old is baby now? 3 days!

How big is baby? Not sure at the moment until he gets weighed tomorrow, but he was 8lbs, 14oz at birth, and 8lbs 6oz at discharge from the hospital.

Any exciting milestones? He smiles!

How long is baby sleeping at night? He is up every 3 hours right now, but he wakes up on his own to feed, I don't wake him.

Anybody already having fun with DH in the bedroom? My goodness, no! We are only 3 days pp... this made me laugh, though!

Something you want to share? We are finally almost settled in the new house! I have brand new Kitchenaid appliances, but no countertop. That is on order. I am trying to convince dh to buy me a Dyson vacuum today. Hehe Smile Oh, and my stove doesn't work. Brand new from the store, and the repair guy is trying to figure it out right now. Ridiculous. At least I have an excuse not to cook! haha.
