Jo, that is an excellent point about insurance. I'm fairly certain they would cover things, but I really should check. I'm enrolled in a Healthy Maternity program. We get extra points towards our deductible. I need to call them for a check-in anyways. No, DH just asked about travel and she was all for it.

Helena, my in-laws are seriously technologically impaired. They haven't bought a new computer since 1998. Yes, that is right... the 1990s. I told DH we need to get all of his siblings on board to buy them a new computer. Hence why my MIL gets huffy when she doesn't receive constant photo updates. I told her to get on facebook. If we do go I will try not to have too crappy of an attitude, but I can't promise anything.

So our agency director just dropped by to say Hi and grab some food. His comment: "Wow, you're over halfway baked and not really even showing!" I laughed inside because when my grandma saw my pictures on facebook she called and asked if I was sure I wasn't have twins. I love how people have completely different perspectives.

Oh, Kellen, what a tough situation! I agree with what all of the other girls said! There will be plenty of other holidays when you can drive out to see them. Your priority is kicking you in the bladder! It may put a strain on you and DH momentarily, but ultimately I think he'll love and respect that you're protective of the baby.

Luckily my mom only lives an hour away, so it isn't too far of a drive for us. Even THEN, I've been having dreams about going into labor at her house on Christmas I think our bodies and minds are just getting ready, and staying close to the "nest" is what we're programmed to do right now.

Sierra, I'm so sorry for your sister! How tough to have to move again... ugh. On the plus side, you can get the nursery all ready now

Thank you, Jo! I can't believe we've all made it to 3rd tri too. Second tri actually flew by! I've still not done ANYTHING to prepare for baby. I've been thinking about making weekly jobs to do (like put together crib, organize clothes, order car-seat cover, etc) and do one at a time so I don't feel so overwhelmed.

It was quick wasn't it! I have a feeling that with Christmas these next few weeks will fly by too!

Kellen, if you do agree to go, then you should tell him that you are reserving the right to cancel at the last minute if you don't feel up to it. You will be tired by then. I found it hard enough to cope with the inlaws for a week at 23 weeks and I had much more patience then!

I feel a bit bad because we will only be staying at my mum's for about 3 hours on Christmas Day, but she said we can't bring the dog because my Grandma will be there and she is frail and my dog is huge. That's fine but I'm not leaving him alone on Christmas Day stuck in the house for more than 5 hours! Even that feels mean to me as he's not used to being on his own. I actually think when it comes to it, I will be pleased that we will be going home early as I will want my comfy sofa and be very tired!

No results call today from the doctor. Does that mean everything is okay? I got so busy at work that I forgot to call to get results. My pelvis and vagina have been hurting on and off today, but nothing like yesterday.

Anyone else getting sharp "twinges" around where your cervix is (or at least that's where I'm assuming it's coming from)?

Yes!! LOL It's the weirdest feeling. To me it feels like something is scratching at my cervix from the inside. It's random and infrequent, but I know exactly what you mean.

at biting...lol.

I had DH take a 3rd tri pic today! I'm not feeling super cute these days, but I don't want to have this baby and have NO pictures of my pregnancy. Anyhow, here it is! Excuse the sweats, it was just after pilates.

Lovely bump, wamommy!

And yes to the cervix twinges...both of my babies are breech, so I'm getting lots of kicks in that area, that'll definitely wake you up!

I got a call from my doctor's office today, the fetal fibronectin test was negative, which means it's very unlikely I will go into labor in the next few weeks, yay! Also, my liver enzymes and blood count were within normal limits.

Great news dragon, beautiful bump wamommy. I haven't had any scratching by the cervix yet but I did with my last and I remember describing it as like him using his fingernails. When he was born he had really long nails!..
