No POAS yet! I think I just o'd within the past two days or so but then again I'm not sure. I'll definitely keep you ladies utd.

How is everyone else?

Emma I'm so glad Olly is doing so well and that you are feeling better!

Glad to hear that all is going well, Emma! It'd be nice having an easy baby with another little one running around as well.

No POAS for me, either. I have finished round 3 of Clomid and am waiting to see what comes of it. I have stopped tempting for a bit, as I found my mind on my temps too much the last couple of cycles. I will just BD every other day or so, and maybe start tempting again in a week or so just to see where I am at. I know my temps well enough now to know if they'd be pre or post ovulatory.

Jess and Puppy - Fingers crossed for you ladies! I have a good feeling about things. After all, someone has to hop on the preggo train this next month or so once I hop off. So sending you lots of baby dust!!

Emma - So glad you and Olly are doing well and you are starting to feel recovered and getting back to your old self. Have you gotten out for the first time yet or are you still mostly resting at home?

I'm doing well. I'm officially 37 weeks now. It was weird waking up yesterday morning and thinking, okay, so this could in theory kick off at any moment now! I've been thinking the past few weeks every time I had a little gas cramp or something silly like that, that one day soon I might feel something like that and have it actually, really be labour. Just on time to feed into my paranoia, yesterday I started having some mild period like cramps and fairly noticeable BH and dull low back ache. My midwife always asks me if I get BH and I've been like, um, I guess! Sometimes it does feel tighter or I get some pressure in there, but it wouldn't be something that stops me in my tracks and makes me think, whoa, what was that?!? But yesterday I definitely got a few. I've been totally of the mindset that nothing is happening anytime soon. I don't have anything major ready. Baby clothes aren't washed (well, the 3-6 month ones are! Just not the newborn ones!). My 'just in case I have to go to hospital' bag isn't packed and frankly I don't even have most of what goes in it. We are woefully low on toilet paper and groceries, etc. So it did sorta freak me out a little when I started feeling a little twingey yesterday because I was like shit! I am so not prepared! And it would be just my luck to go into labour and have nothing ready! So today, I'm finishing all my errands, washing all baby clothes and bedding, packing my bag, etc.

I had my appointment with the midwives yesterday to go over my birth plan. I think they tend to make some special efforts to go through it all with you when you are planning a home birth as they want to make sure you understand what all you need and various scenarios when they might recommend a transfer. It was really nice. I had two midwives all to myself to ask lots of questions and we went through my birth plan line by line and discussed it. They were pleased with everything and took down all the directions on how to get to my house and then sent me home with my box of home birth supplies (they usually give you a kit to have in advance with everything they need so they don't have to go all the way to the hospital before they come out to you). As I write this, I'm literally sitting next to my two gas & air canisters, which is really weird.

We also practiced blowing up my birth pool last night and figuring out where everything will go on the day. I put on some candles and my birth music and got in to give it a go. It was sooooo relaxing and comfortable! So at least I feel like I kinda know what we are supposed to do just in case anything happens sooner than I expect. I'm probably the only pregnant lady ever who isn't in a hurry to give birth, but I'd really love a couple weeks off to relax and get things in order. But the joke would be on me if I went into labour soon. I just hope it's not before Thursday because I have a massage and facial booked and I've been really looking forward to that these past few weeks!

Okay, off to the shops. I have some maternity pads to stock up on!

Just a quick update while I can still see straight! Our little munchkin decided to make an early arrival on Friday at 37 + 5. I woke up to my waters going at 2am and when the midwives arrived at 9:30am I was fully dilated! Josephine Rose was born at 1:55pm at home on our bedroom floor! I totally didn't believe she was a girl and the midwives had to double check for me. Will update more soon but someone is hungry now.

Hope you all are going great!

Congratulations, can't wait to see pictures - I bet she is beautiful! Looking forward to hearing your birth story.

Jess, how are you feeling so far this month? Looks like you have ovulated, which is always a step in the right direction!

Hey puppy!
I'm doing well. I'm currently experiencing one of my favorite pre-PMS symptoms, starvation! I have O'd but I'm not sure if it was CD 14 or CD 18. I never saw any fertile cm. If it was cd 14 then I'm definitely out because we did not bd. But if it was cd 18 we have a good chance. I refuse to test early though...so I probably won't test until 2/18 or 2/19.

How about you? Any good news?

Yeah, it's hard to tell by your chart!

I am not sure about me -- I decided not to tempt this month, for the most part, to avoid stressing myself out. I thought that by not obsessing about my temps, my body might just work better! It's wishful thinking, probably, but we shall see soon. I may check to see where they are at sometime this week -- I'll know if I have ovulated or not, as I know where they generally are pre- and post-ovulation. I also have bloodwork to test progesterone (for ovulation) this coming weekend. If it doesn't show anything, I am not sure if I'll be upped again, or just referred to the FS.

Either way, were BDing to cover our bases!
