My muscles separated a while back. (I think lol)



I'll pack my bags next week, get carseat in the car the week after that. I'm exhausted this week with p/t conferences, halloween, and a dr appt tonight (it's an hour drive one way..)

At my appt we talked and he's got one week to flip. Then we're scheduling a U/S to check fluid and size. Then we'll talk about possibly scheduling a section or attempting to turn him.



Let's just hope he does his job in the coming week. :) She gave me some ideas to possibly encourage him to move or to push on him a little at a time to help him along.




Also got a flu shot. :/ Never had one before so I'm really nervous that I'm going to get the flu bc of it.

We're waiting until he comes naturally UNLESS we have to schedule a section but we'll see.



I have 1 week to get my lessons together for my mat leave. Totally NOT ready for that. At all.

Quoting mama $teffy*34 weeks*:" Hey mama's. I'm curious but does my daughter HAVE to have the flu shot so she can see her newborn brother in the hospital in December?"


That is up to the hospital where you are delivering.

Maybe check this out! My boy is transverse so I'm going to try inverting myself a bit each day so encourage him to move. Might also have DH lay on my lap and talk to baby.



And if all else fails there will be some frozen foods on the top and some warm clothes on the bottom lol

Quoting vxgonzalez:" <blockquote><b>Quoting **Louise**:</b>" Was just wondering how many of you ladies feel ... [snip!] ... by!"</blockquote> I feel ready. It might just be I'm tired. I have a lot of pelvic pain & my belly button hurts! :("


Pelvic pain is annoying. There are times after I've been sitting for a while that I'll get up and can barely walk because he is so low already. So much different than my first pregnancy.

I have a hard time walking/getting up quite often. But I think my muscles are just strained down there because it's not from him being low. I think my uterus is low but not him! :(

Quoting Landon's Mommy *34wks*:" I agree, the pregnancy has just flown by! I am 50% ready for labor lol mentally.... no. Physically.... ... [snip!] ... I want everything to be 100% ready for her & it's not. Still a few more things to get finished before her arrival!! "


I feel like I have everything I need but I know I'll have to buy diapers and my husband still has to get stuff down out of the attic. My boppy is up there and so are bottles and who knows what else. I think the only thing I will need right away that I don't have is diapers. I don't want to buy newborn size though because my first was in size 1 when he got out of the hospital. I should just buy some size 1's and hope they fit.

Ok so what is up with pooping every time I go to the bathroom now? I was perfectly happy with once a day. Glad I'm not constipated but still. Every time!

Same here! I never had any of this kind of pain but I do know your body is different after having your first! I can't get over the Belly Button pain! lol
