    Most recent appt: Tuesday 10/16 check up, Wednesday 10/17, last sonogram!
    What did it entail: Strep B & HIV Test at the check up, along with an internal because baby is so low (no dilation), and the last sonogram was to check the placenta, fluids (which were all good) and baby's weight!
    Next appt: Tuesday, 10/23

    Anything else you want to add: I have to learn how to savour these last few weeks of being pregnant because I feel really blessed that I've had such a great experience wtih my first pregnancy. I love having her with me at all times and feeling her move, and i'm enjoying these easier moments before life gets totally different (not that those times won't be wonderful too), but I think i need to stop and smell the roses instead of saying "i can't wait" all the time

    Name: Harmony

    Pregnant
    Due date/how far along are you: 36 weeks 4 days
    Are you working?: No
    Most recent appt: Yesterday
    What did it entail: cervical check, ultrasound, NST, GBS test
    Next appt: Next week Thursday
    what does it entail: Just a regular check
    Bag packed?: No
    If not, when will you?: Um, soon?
    Any signs of labor?: Nothing recently, but a few weeks ago some major BHs
    What, if anything, are you doing to get things going: When I get closer I'll probably do some of the fun old wives' tales just to pass the time
    Anything else you want to add: DH and I were talking last night about how different it feels this time getting closer to the due date. Last time we could think of nothing but baby the whole time, but this time we have so much going on with life that it just doesn't feel like we've got a baby coming in the next few weeks. It's a bit weird-feeling.

    Name: Jackie

    Pregnant
    Due date/how far along are you:
    I am 36+2 today. EDD is the 14th, but I've got until the 28th.
    Are you working?: No.
    If so, When do you plan to start maternity leave:
    Most recent appt:
    Yesterday!
    What did it entail: Since it was my 36 week appt, I had the GBS swap. I love my practice - she only swabbed part of my vagina because as she said "baby won't come out of your butt." When feeling for baby's position I told her where the head, butt, legs, etc all were (Zoe is currently breech). She didn't believe me (Zoe isn't a big kiddo judging by how easily she flips still and MW feeling estimates) until she brought out the doppler and what she thought was the butt started hiccuping! I had a good laugh. She's not concerned one bit that Zoe isn't head down right now. Everything looks great though.
    Next appt: Wednesday (10/24).
    what does it entail: Since I am a seeking a VBAC and Zoe is head down, I do have to see an OB so I can get a quick u/s to make sure all is okay. Thankfully they don't trust weight estimates at all. They just want double check position and to make sure she's not engaging a leg or butt if she's still breech, and to check my scar real quick.
    Bag packed?: Nope. I know I'm no where near labor right now. lol
    If not, when will you?: I have it on my calendar to pack next week. Maybe I will; more apt to wait another week. I do have my list so it's not like it'll take long. I'll at least start washing all of my nursing stuff, my "going down" clothes, mama cloth, etc.
    Any signs of labor?: Nope!
    What, if anything, are you doing to get things going: Right now I'm just doing exercises to keep my uterus and pelvic muscles properly lined and evenly stretched. Should help give her the encouragement to flip back easily and once head down settle down some. I'm also listening to my hypnobabies VBAC tracks which is full of positive affirmations and hypnosis to get baby to settle head down and choose her birth day.
    Anything else you want to add: My lodge has started! YAY! (link in siggy)

    Heather - my computer does the same thing and i have a best friend that is a huge techy -he insists that the mouse is ultra sensitive and if you are typing and your hands slightly graze the mouse pad that is what happens - he suggests to just try and keep your hands as far away from the mouse or hold them up higher when typing. i try this, and it's been working, i still have the occasional time where my hands graze it and i get the cursor to jump and it's SOOO aggrivating..... but it's better since i'm aware of why its happening

    I know how you feel Harmony! I am still amazed I will be holding and caring for a newborn soon. Life can calm down please. My dad recently had heart surgery and then had an emergency trip back to the hospital and spent about 5-6 days there and now my mom is having part of her lung removed and tested for cancer next week. On top of the normal I already have a crazy 4 year old and a 6 year old.

    It is weird!
