That's awesome, I'm glad she's refunding those fees for you. :) And tell that little boy to stay put! He just wants out of there I guess lol. Hopefully he can hold off for a couple more weeks. I feel you on the back pains, that's what I was getting the other day when I called out of work. I didn't know there was a thing called "back labor" where you get contractions in your back.. I dunno if that's what I got the other day but I couldn't even sit up for most of the day.



I think if I already had a kid, I'd still have a baby shower. A new baby's a new baby, why not celebrate it? I'd just tell people not to worry about gifts, but that's just me. And I hear you on the baby showing up early.. I'm freaking out thinking she could be here any day now and I barely have anything! I mean, yeah, I have the big stuff.. but like the changing table is at SO's sister's, the car seat and stroller are at my mom's, and the damn crib is just in pieces on her bedroom floor. If she were to come now, we'd be screwed too, so don't feel bad.



And nope, no weird baby dreams. I've had vivid dreams throughout this entire pregnancy, but none of them have to do with the baby. With my last pregnancy, I had a dream that I got a call from my doctor saying the baby weighs eight pounds and they needed me to come in for an emergency c-section.. which was crazy, because shortly after I went into labor and had to go in for an emergency c-section and he was just under eight pounds (7 lbs. 13 oz.).

You ladies sound like me over here!! Im going crazy trying to prepare for "just in case" and I feel so UN-prepared. I did come home after a HORRIBLE day at work, to find my new car seat my mom had sent me and my closet organizer for the nursery. I have spent all day today cleaning my breast pump (hasn't been touched in 4 years)..yuck! And all the parts to it. I still need to wash Madie's clothes and set up her co-sleeper in our room so DD1 and Ares (dog) can get use to it being in there and wont mess with it as much when Madie gets here. lol Only a little longer mama's and our little ones will be here! My baby shower is May 25th and I pray this girl stays put till then.



Kirsten - keep us updated on little Aaron!! Hes an eager one isn't he!
Auntsissy- CONGRATS on your little man! He's adorable and LOVE the name!
All new mamas- Welcome and congrats on your LO's

lol I'm worried mine will come before her baby shower too.. with my last pregnancy, I had my baby shower planned for about a month before LO was due and I ended up having him before the baby shower. With this one.. my shower is about a month before she's due also, so I'm freaking out thinking she's gonna follow in her brother's foot steps and come out crazy early. I would be having it a week earlier, but apparently that day wasn't good for a lot of people so it's going to be the day before mother's day. :)

lol.. welcome new mamas, and beautiful pic of baby boy! Nice shot! I wish Claire wasn't so obscured by whatever it was in all her photos, but yeah.



I'm sure things will end up coming together last minute for us. We'll probably be bombarded by visitors and such that they are sure to pitch in and help put things together or help set things up and such when our little babies are here. I bet its hard for some of the men to set things up because they gotta work until the baby is here so they can take time off so I think we just need to try to relax and focus on getting done what we realistically can within our means.



Exciting to see the baby photos pour in soon enough. (but hopefully not too soon!)

K 3-5 mins apart, again. IV fluids didn't stop them at all. Brethine shot did, til it wore off. I'm still only 1 cm n 50% effaced so nothing they can do. Still in my back like waves of pain but the monitors weren't picking them up. Heading home so Tylenol, heating pad, rest, kinda on bed rest now :( def still on pelvic rest :*( 2 more wks if he can hold off at least. And take that stupid terbutaline pill "as needed"... Yeaaaa ill deal w the pain screw taking that everyday!



Aww cute photo! I read the posts in here even though I may not respond to them. Hang in there ladies usually nesting n all doesn't happen until 36 wks and on. So ur still on track :)

So any first time moms pick out a pediatrician yet? I'm not sure when I should try to meet with the one I picked out.

For any ladies who still need to do a birth plan, I did mine on www.earthmamaangelbaby.com.



Aaron is just too spunky! He really wants to break out of jail now.. I hope you can manage to hold on longer, it's crazy that this keeps happening and its worrisome that you have to change up things to try to keep him under wraps. Ugh! Keep up that rest!

Thank you :p he will be here 38 weeks. My doc takes him because my high risk factors he said he is at risk the longer he stays in, Sally came at 38 weeks also. Perfectly healthy.

Alisa, is it going to be a c-section or are they going to induce you..? Sorry if you've already told us this, it's hard to keep up with so many ladies on here lol.



And I have a question for you all.. I posted on my FB asking people to let me know if they'd like an invite to my baby shower. Well.. a few girls from high school who I haven't seen in years, but randomly talk to on FB occasionally, are asking me to send them invites. Is that weird..? I feel like if they wanna come, they can come, but at the same time.. I dunno, I guess it's weird because we haven't really kept up with eachother or even really talked much, so.. I dunno how to feel about it..

With my son I invited some HS friends but they didn't show up. I did the same with this one and asked my FB peeps who would come to the party and it's mostly guy cousins &uncles.. Kinda weird but, in my family the guys tend to be super fatherly if that makes sense. I'd send them invites if they don't cost to much to make. :)



My SIL does all that graphic design & cards stuff, if you need them done? Well, I think she still does it..

Nope, not weird at all. I would send them one and if they come..Great! And if not, oh well. I didnt keep in touch with ppl I went to hs with but since having a baby and expecting another, you'd be amazed at how many ppl will pop back into ure life. Lol
Btw ladies I have an issue with my DD1, so she gas for a while now had allergies and she was on zertec twice a day.. Well she hasn't been coughing in months and Sunday night she woke up with a bad,wetish, croupy cough and was running a fever. I gave her ibuprofen and delsyn and next morning was fine except cough. I gave her more meds and sent her in to daycare. Picked her up and the lady said she wasn't really herself but had no fever just was coughing. Also informed me one of the other kids had walking pneumonia!! So I get her home, few hours later, fever again 101.6 so gave get more meds and cough meds along with Claritin for runny nose (thinking irs allergy related) and she's fine all day today except for cough. Took a nap and woke up at 5ish and fever is back 101.7 and cough is still here. She seems fine other than the cough but idk what this could be.. I only work M-W-F and I need those hours but not if my DD us gonna need me home with her. Any suggestions? I'll be making her a doc appointment for Thursday if she is feeling okay enough tomorrow. I dont think this is contagious, no one else in the family has it as of now and I dont see us getting it. I just wish I could do more for her..
