This carpal tunnel is getting ridiculous. I was up for at least an hour last night cuz of the pain. Different positions and my splints weren't helping either. I just had to deal until I got tired enough to fall back to sleep. My hands are still hurting this morning and I feel swollen af. Baby was feeling painfully low yesterday, but no sign of my mucus plug so far. And it looks like the change table (at "MIL"'s place) won't be ready for pick up this weekend. *sigh* On the plus side, BD's car will be ready for Monday.

Sorry for the little bitch fit. Just needed to get this off my chest. Still thankful for my active little man and really hoping I can make it to my EDD despite all this discomfort.

Leson that's so cute! They mentioned that at my childbirth class, having something nice to do for yourself every day passed your due date

Re: gestational age, my O date was a bit confusing and could have been one of three days but my initial three scans all point to the same day based on measurements. Which is off from my ticker by one day, the ticker was based on the earliest o date. So I'm curious to see if that and his growth matching that means I'm going close to 40.

Re: dilation and effacement agreed. I was 2.5cm and 75% effaced at my 36 week appointment. My BH have all but stopped the last two weeks. No sigh of baby. I did get some nassssty BH last night that was so uncomfortable it woke me up and I had to do some breathing, but nope. Nothing lol.

Pretty glad BD gets his car Monday! Any chance of calling it quits at work? I know you can push through and do it, but you mentioned it's just a job band your body is clearly telling you to take a break . Sorry if I'm overstepping. I always eye roll when people tell me to take time off from work lol

Afm about to go wait 3-4 hours in line to buy crap from a pop up store for SO to surprise him. I very rarely surprise him because he wants to know as throws a hissy fit until you tell him. So all last night he was whining about not getting morning cuddles and why I was leaving before he wakes up. I wanted to be like stfu it's actually all about you, dummy! But I want to see the look on his face when he wakes up to his surprise present. Especially since I already got him an exhaust for his motorcycle and Nick Offerman stand up tix for Christmas so he is totally not expecting anything.

I'm just 4 days away from 41+1, but I guess a lot could change between now and then.
Absolutely nothing until I had my bloody show the night before around 8pm. We'd been out shopping all day, followed by a spicy dinner, and a quickie once we got home I had a cervical check that night due to some strong braxton hicks, she was only 3/5 engaged and my cervix was closed, high and unreachable. I was told there was no chance I was having a baby any time soon. She arrived at 9:41am the next morning after a very speedy labour. Until my bloody show, no signs in the slightest.

I have spent today non-stop shopping trying to find a birthday present for my mum, and taking advantage of the next sales. I picked up some awesome unisex dinosaur onesies, and several other bits for all of us. Now I just need baby to arrive so I can't start dressing him/her in all these cute sleepsuits!

Dobby - Nah, I'll be ok. Actually, unless something happens, I'm gonna be staying home on Monday cuz we're a little low on work. So, I'll get an extra day of rest. Maybe I'll put together the swing and bouncy chair I have.

As for BD's car, it's now been pushed back to Tuesday, but no biggie.

Anywho, I went to a BBQ BD's family was throwing today. It was nice to see everyone, including BD's preggo cousin-in-law. She's 13 weeks behind me. Can't believe the next time I see everyone, the baby will have arrived. : )

Congratulations to all the ladies who have had their babies already! May you all enjoy and countinue to be blessed!

Can't believe I'm actually sitting here on my due date without the slightest signs of going into labor. Can't lie, even though i feel a bit disappointed or rather anxious is a better word that I have not given birth yet I can't help but feel accomplished that I am fortunate enough to have made it this far. All a waiting game now I suppose.

Pretty- you look great love the hair color! I actually bleached and dyed the back half of my hair awhile back hot pink and it was so cute and edgy. Loved the way it looked when I wore it up in ponytails or when I wore it down and it would be a bit of pink peeking through. Definitely miss it!

I've been very very crampy today and my back really hurts. I've also noticed quite a bit of mucus everytime I've wiped today... Hoping this is progress!!!

Well, I had a pretty productive day off.

Had my 39 week OB appt. Everything was still lookin' good, except that I'm still packing on the pounds and swollen as ever, but those are issues that were concerning me more than my Dr. I told her I'd had a lot more lightning crotch and pubic soreness and she offered to check me and do a sweep, if I wanted, but I decided to wait til next week (when I'll be 40w3d).

Then I took care of a little business at the bank, picked up a seat protector, fold-able baby camping chair and 2 nursing bras from BRU, got home and assembled the baby swing, bouncy chair, put a bag in the diaper genie, and started charging the baby monitor. Can't believe I'll be meeting my baby in a matter of days.

Oh, and BD and I picked up a few pieces of clothing over the weekend.

I have my "40 week" appointment today since my due date is tomorrow. This is the last of the seven doctors in my practice I hadn't seen yet.. I am so hoping there is progress as this is day two of just feeling crampy. Thankfully it's my last day of work and my parents come in from Florida tomorrow which I'm super excited about.. I just hope that them coming in triggers peanut to come.. my hips are so sore it's insane..
