Just wanted to say "Hey!"... and post a little update. We made it through Hurricane Irene this weekend with little more than rain for a whole day and some winds Saturday night. But, I did have a ton of BH contrax that started Saturday afternoon and continued until like 2:00 am Sunday morning... they got most intense when the air pressure from the storm was the lowest. Several people told me that the low air pressure experience during a hurricane can bring on labor. I was so nervous about it actually being the real thing and having to drive through the stormy weather to the hospital, because some of them were quite intense and they were close (3-5) minutes together for a few hours, affecting my back as well. I threw a few more things in my hospital suitcase, so now it is completely packed except for last minute stuff like makeup and hairdryer and I-pod. We just decided to go to sleep and see what would happen and everything calmed down in the morning. I had a friend in town all weekend from St. Louis and we just relaxed and talked and talked and watched a movie (at home) and got pedicures and played with the kids. DH was amazing this weekend, cooking us all kinds of yummy food and cleaning up the kitchen and watching the peeps so I could have girl time. It was just what I needed. So now that I've hit 38 weeks and I got my friend visit in, I'm totally ready for baby to come... at least physically... mentally, I'm still a little nervous about the whole natural labor thing again (even though my last two labors have been great). But none the less, I think we are ready for baby day now.
