    Thinking of you Mary, I am still hoping it turns out to be something benign. Let us know when you can.

    well, I just packed my hospital bag. I don't think I've ever done that before 36 weeks before. But, I guess I need to be ready to go anytime. I didn't put any baby stuff in, but I did pack a camera, just in case. And I posted emergency childcare numbers by the phone, in case I have to call an ambulance. And in my cell phone in case something happens while I'm away from home.
    I hope I never need any of these preparations, but denial wouldn't help at all.

    I definitely should have waited for an evening when DH was home (he's working late again). Now I'm feeling all depressed.

    Mary: Lots of Ps and Ts for you. Hopefully it's just a precaution or something. Thinking of you.

    Virginia: Oct 8th sounds great! LOL. I'm happy to send some long pregnancy vibes your way; I definitely hate the waiting game at the end but am very grateful that all 3 of my babies have gone full term then beyond. Just one less thing to worry about.

    Katie: Rory sounds a lot like Brekke in that she wasn't a very happy infant but once she started being able to talk she got soooo much better. Dane actually talks even a bit better than she did at this age, but I'm sure it has something to do with his big sis talking nonstop all day long and they are pretty glued together most of the time. Anyway, life is definitely easier with a talker. One of my close friends has a son who is almost 3 and he doesn't articulate anything very clearly and I've seen how frustrating it is for both her and him.

    Got a bit of a nesting bug today I guess...I've been replacing light bulbs, organizing the kids' toys, cleaning out the closet for donations, and basically just trying to get things put away. You'd think all this activity would give me contractions but the only time I have any is when I sit down at the computer. Go figure.

    Virginia - I hope you don't need that hospital bag for a long time.

    AFM - brain scans are done. Feeling depressed and scared. Just want to crawl in a hole somewhere. My neck and head have started hurting so much... I'm actually getting scared it's something even worse than MS, and MS is horrific. Ugh. So depressed.

    Eta - forgot my whole point of posting.. they said it takes a day or two to get results to the doc, so I'll potentially know something next week.

    Mary - I have been thinking of you! Are they testing you for MS? I thought MS was a pretty extensive disease to diagnose? I rode with a woman who went through multiple scans, tests, etc. for months and months and still didn't get a diagnosis. I guess I didn't realize a scan could tell you! Either way, keeping you in my thoughts! I hope this is nothing!!

    Virginia - I think I'm late on this, but congratulations on another boy!! You are going to have your own football team soon! Why did you pack your bag so early? I must have missed something. Is it because of the previa? I need to go back and reread...!

    Ash - Ooo, baby may be here soon, yeah? Nesting is a good thing.

    Sorry if I missed anyone!

    AFM - We have a couple interested in our house! Finally. They have come back twice now and are "ready to move forward", but they want to talk to our neighbor. Sigh. He was arrested 6 years ago (a month after we bought the house, no joke!) for child pornography. Argh. He is a nice guy who got caught up doing something stupid as a teen, but now he's registered on Megan's Law and the chick is concerned. I can't blame her, obviously. We are SO CLOSE to selling. They love the house. Argh, so yeah. They want to meet him and talk to him so that they can get "past this hump" and put an offer on the house. He has offered to talk to anyone who might be concerned, so that's good at least. Now we just have to set up the meeting. Hopefully they will then put an offer in on the house!!

    Jen - I hope you're able to sell the house. Good luck! I had to pack my bag because if I have any bleeding I need to get to the hospital ASAP because the previa puts me at high risk of a prenatal hemorrhage. And I could end up there a few days before being sent home or I could end up hospitalized for the remainder of the pregnancy, however long that is. It's pretty scary. I'll probably be okay for a couple more months, but some women start bleeding around 20w.

    Virginia - I hope your preparedness is just good planning and not needed. The only full previa person I know was lucky enough to have no complications. She has a lot of funny stories about her toddler who learned to do things like climb from the back of her SUV right in to the shopping cart and then back b/c she was on an absolutely NO lifting restriction for most of her pregnancy. But her baby girl was full term and healthy so that's my hope for you!

    Mary - I hope you can get your results more quickly and it is only good news!

    Jen - YAY for a potential sale fingers crossed!!

    Amanda & Ashley - HEYYY

    Yay for Friday tomorrow. Work is a circus and I'm spinning like crazy. Sigh. Nothing much planned this weekend though and that is always nice!
