    Anyhow, after he told me about the induction, he walked out....it was then that I realized I needed to ask about the GBS test.

    So, I HAVE to ask next week FOR SURE!


    Lisa, I hope your appt goes well! The fair sounds fun, but how are you gonna do the Walk for the Cure? I would have to stop all the time to go potty! :)


    Karma, looks like you will be the next Mommy since Noah is too comfy in here! Yay!
    Wow, I really hope Noah comes before the 5th or he's not born until the 6th because I would HATE for my baby to share a birthday with an EX. I'm sure Jay would hate it too, I know Steve would. LOL.

    Isn't it funny though, a few weeks ago we were thinking we would be early and now it's starting to look like our little ones are going to stay put. I told Steve at lunch today that we need to start having sex more so I can get things moving in there. He said he was happy to help.

      Lizz, I am HUGE, and everyone is different. My best friend had a baby almost 4 weeks ago and she only gained 11 pounds her entire pregnancy. Her baby was 7 pounds .05 ounces. I popped at like 12 or 14 weeks or so....I bet it will happen soon then you can wear your maternity clothes. I never felt Noah move much until after 20 weeks.


      Karma, looks like you will be the next Mommy since Noah is too comfy in here! Yay!

      I went to my doctor the week before I was due and I was only 3cm dilated and the baby hadn't dropped yet. He scheduled an induction for the Monday after I was due. I think that totally scared me into labour!! I went into labour Tuesday (the same day of my apt) and had my little girl on Wednesday. That and I did TONS of walking and I had a membrane sweep.. which hurt more than my contractions!! If you really want to get the ball rolling I recommend you ask for one.. just be prepared for about 45 secs of torture!! My daughter didn't drop because her arm was stuck. So. after almost 12 hours of labour they gave me the option of c-section or forceps.. I went for the forceps even though I was terrified. It turned out to be the best decision I made though.. they did an awesome job and she didn't have any bruising or marks :) Anyways, I went way off topic there..
      I hope you go into labour before the 5th and don't worry.. baby doesn't always drop. Sometimes they will drop when you go into labour :)
      GOOD LUCK!

        Martha - Noah is way comfy in there....

        I just got back from my appt. It all went well. I gained 4 pounds, heartbeat was 156, bloob pressure 120/76. He also did the GSB test today. He said they like to do it between 33-35 weeks - whatever, it was just a week early. They said they don't like to chance me going into labor early and not knowing. He also said my cervix was still closed and he felt a little hand when he was in there. o.k., so that's a little freaky girls!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! He felt his hand with his fingers. WTF!?!? What happens when we have sex. A peepee is bigger than a finger!!

          OMG, I'm laughing so hard right now.

          That is kind of creepy though, now that you put it that way.

          Good to know your appointment went well other wise! Do you go back next week or in two weeks now?

            I know Karma!! They say sex doesn't hurt the baby and not to worry about it. All I keep picturing is Luke grabbing ahold....rofl!!!

            I go back in 2 weeks, then every week after that.

            We did our last child birth class last night. She had a pedi in there and she answered so many of our questions and told us what questions to ask when trying to decide which one to go with. I guess I should start that mission now.

              I have read a little about membrane sweeps, guess I should read more about it. I am such a wuss when it comes to pain though.

              Was the forceps decision a hard one? Did they let you know if there would be any complications or risks?

              I hope he drops on his own and that I dialate on my own. I've heard contractions are way worse when you are induced.


              Lisa, that is NUTS!!! What did James say? I don't think Jay would want to have sex anymore if I told him that! ha!


              Oh, and Jay has no idea hat 11/05 is my ex's b-day. I didn't tell him...they don't exactly have a great relationship with one another (ha!) and I don't want him to have a negative reminder of that day (IF he is born that day).

                What? How could he feel a hand if your cervix was closed? Isn't that between your canal and the baby? Are you sure he wasn't joking?

                  If your cervix is closed, he didn't feel a hand. He couldn't feel a hand unless you were dilated to at least 2-3 cm, and even then it would be hard and that would mean the baby was in a really funny position- he's probably be talking c-section if that's what he actually felt...

                    I have no idea. First he said that he was breech, and I was like...what??...He wasn't at my sono, then he said, oh that was just a hand....no clue if he was joking but it sure didn't sound like it.

                      He's definitely head down and has not said anything about a c/s.
