Quinston, you poor thing. If that didn't bring on labour, then you can't be ready yet. I'm still hoping you get your Leap Baby.
alibaba~81, how late was your DD? DS was 3 days early, so I'm hoping for around 20 March. I don't want to go too early though cos I need DH's 2 weeks off work to seemlessly merge into the school holidays (he's a teacher) so we get 4 weeks... I'm also hiring a TENS machine, used one last time, not sure how much it helped but it did distract me a bit.
3cubs, not long til your scan now, how exciting!
SusieBlue, the heat and humidity really knock me around too, but really this summer could have been a lot worse.
elle-M, so adorable, thanks for posting! Sounds like a great birth too. I've heard that the uterus contracting while feeding is much more painful second baby, I wonder why?
AFM, last week of work, yay! Then next week I still have DS in childcare 3 days, so I can rest and get stuff done. Then I'll be 38 weeks so it can happen any time after that. We got DS's new carseat last week (Maxi Cosi Complete Air - love it) so put that in yesterday and cleaned his old one to get it ready to put in for baby. It was disgusting, there was quite a buildup of raisins and muesli bar crumbs under the fabric! Hospital bag is 90% packed I think. So next week I need to cook some meals to freeze and then I think it's pretty much under control.
Insomnia is starting to get to me, I was awake from about 4am either cold or sweating or being punched from the inside or not able to get comfortable with my sore hips. Finally dropped off around 7am, and DS woke up at 7.20am... yawn! So as much as I'd like to take your advice of sleeping now, elle-M, it's just not happening! I think I'll be having a nanna nap in my office after lunch!
Countdown is on - there are 5 of us in the next month! How exciting! Oh and 4 babies from my DIG (16-31 Mar) have already made an appearance, so it really could be any day for any of us!
