Quoting DifferentDay:" Heading to hosp. Contractions still 4-6 mins apart so they wanna do a labor check. Tg for our friend/neighbor. ... [snip!] ... wake the girls n then took them for us :) so it's just hubby n I yay he can stay in triage w me now. Will update in a few hrs."


Ahhh good luck! I'm hoping he comes because I know you're getting tired of all the random contractions and labor scares. Tell that little man to make up his mind! And keep us updated! :D

It's official.. I have the best fiance' ever. I've been feeling really down lately because he hasn't really been doing much around the house as far as cleaning and helping me pick up goes, and I've been getting really stressed having to be the one to stay on top of all the bills and, on top of that.. our shitty no sex situation is really bringing me down. Well.. I have a hard time saying things without getting overly emotional, so I'll often send him an email because it's a lot easier for me to type it all out and have him read it so he can fully understand what I'm getting at. So the other day I typed this long email about how I wish he'd help more around the house, how it's hard for me to do everything because I'm 36 weeks pregnant and in a lot of pain, how I wish he'd pay more attention to when bills are due because I hate having to be the one to remind him, "Hey, this bill's due today!" or "Hey, can you cover this much of this bill?" (it seriously stresses me out), and how our lack of a sex life has been lowering my confidence a lot lately. Well.. the day I sent him the email, he came home and apologized and said he got so used to me being the one to remind him about the bills and he realizes how it's not fair on me because it's our home, not just mine. Then yesterday when I got home he had done the dishes. :) And.. this may be TMI, but we had aaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhmazing sex last night. It wasn't the boring sex we usually have where it's in and out and done, it was like the sex we used to have.. it was actually fun and I didn't feel like he was forcing it (the rare ocassions we do have sex lately, I feel like he's only doing it for me). It was awesome and I'm so glad he's really trying to keep me happy. :)

My name is kristina. :)



I have a 5 year old son and almost 3 year old daughter! We are expecting our third on June 24th.



I'm a nurse and still working full time, although I think I may take leave soon!



At my last appointment which was earlier this week baby was 5lbs and looking good. Dr said it could be anytime in June.

Ugh I wish my water broke already :( they're 4-5 mins apart since 8am yesterday. I'm still only 2.5c. So got sent home. Just woke up to see if they've stopped n had 2 just laying in bed. Sooo nope. Ha I did nip stim in the hosp n brought them to 1-2 mins apart until the nurse caught me :p then I got lectured on not being 38wks (37 n 5dys!) w.e my midwife said I can start that stuff if I wanted. Asked if I wanted pain meds but I'm not in any pain so I said no. I gotta go to my AIL wedding today n hubby has to work so this will be fun. On a good note, the exam didn't hurt this time :) maybe sex w hubby helped that problem. N I'm gonna discuss it w my mw on tues but I think I may let her strip my membranes to get my cervix going esp if I'm still contracting then. He's dropped down from -2 to -1 or even 0 the nurse said he's super low n I think 2 is crowning.



Yay for fianc

Thanks! Sounds like you are having a long early labor. I hope things progress for you soon. I would hate to be sent home from the hospital empty handed!!

Has anyone got a prenatal massage? My sciatic nerve and back are killing me! I'm tempted to try it out...

I got one with my last pregnancy and it was ahhhmazing. It was one of my mom's friends.. she has a room set up in her house where she does massages for people. I know that may sound weird, but she was very professional and I was very comfortable. I think I need one more now than I did then though but I can't afford one right now. :?

I think I'm going to just do it. I will try anything to just feel better. I'm at work and feel crippled.

Welcome new mommy! My due date is just a day after yours but yeah I feel you on it could happen any day though in June. She keeps sitting low and killing me one day and then helps me take the edge off the next day only to slam down on me again out of nowhere. I definitely was considering a prenatal massage too because the hubs tried to give me a massage last night and it felt so good.



Only problem is I don't have money to spend either so I'm gonna just keep poking at the hubs to do what he can.



I'm glad SO is trying to step up and take care of your needs, so it sounds like you guys just have to keep at that communication! That's awesome news :D



And yes, Aaron does need to make up his mind! Poor little thing. I can't wait to hear from Alisa on how things are going. Hopefully tomm will be an update.

DH rubs my back sometimes but I feel like I need some professional help! I have never experienced this pain before.



I really wanted to work as long as I could so I could have more time off with the baby but at this point I feel like I can't do anymore.




Has anyone in here had their baby yet? I bet it will start anytime! There at a ton of members in the OP!!

One of the girls got her c-section on Friday but we haven't heard from her since Thursday, still waiting on an update. :P I think another girl had her baby a week or two ago..
