I had an OB who only did a check & sweep at 39 weeks. I thought that was pretty good/normal!

I 100% agree about people who don't think they can labour their babies. Or "scheduling" conflicts! or my best friend who had a c-section at 38 weeks because she was breech... Ok 1. there is still 2+ weeks for that baby to turn... 2. WHY if you are doing a c-section do it at 38 weeks? whats the rush? to beat the baby into labour. wouldn't she be able to say "im having contractions" and then they do a c-section? is it early c-section or EMCS (which i wish upon NO ONE!). i dunno seemed rediculous to me.

Ya, I agree - doing a c-sec so early isn't the best idea BUT it seems to be easier for them to plan it. DH's friend had 2 c-secs for breech babies- one at 37 weeks, the other was 38 weeks.... My SIL had a breech baby turn at 38 weeks, so it's still possible!

My cs is being done at 38 weeks, but that is because of the risks of me going into labour. But one thing the OB did tell me was that cs are much easier to recover from when your body hasn't been in labour, and less chance of complications during surgery before labour has started.

How is everyone doing? JCh- are you feeling almost there??

I'm doing not so bad. The temperature has dropped a few degrees here and that along with switching my winter duvet off the bed has really helped me sleep the last few nights and that has made all the difference! My poor husband is cold at night but I told him too bad!

I am soo stiff, but it gets better throughout the day as long as I keep moving. When I get up in the morning I can just barely bend my fingers. Last night I did some yoga... it felt great but caused some BH and then I had to pee every hour last night. I am guessing baby has dropped even more!

As for the blanket situation... I think I've spent 85% of this pregnancy sleeping with no covers at all!! Now what I've done is put my own comforter on my side of the bed and the duvet on DH's side... so that if I want blankets I don't need to steal them back after every trip to the loo! DH is a total thief!!

Today is "finally install the car seat day" and of course it's POURING outside. Figures!!!

That day is coming up for me too! Also packing the hospital bags. I bought some big black panties for afterwards but I have no idea what size I'll be so I bought 2 sizes! I'm also wondering about pjs- I know I want dark ones and I got some amazing black ones for Christmas but they are too nice to ruin. I'm wondering what other stuff I should be getting ready.

I bought some black hipster undies too and have bought an assortment of pads/liners, etc. I hadn't thought about the jammies.... hmmm, maybe I need something more than my black yoga pants.

I am struggling with buying a nursing bra! I am still squeezing into my normal bras (at the last clasp) but I know I am going to go up in size when my milk comes in. I bought one nighttime nursing bra (sports bra style) but I am thinking I should go buy one nice normal bra... I just can decide the size. I normally wear 36C... should I get a 38D or assume that my expanded girth will go back to normal?! LOL

Oh, and DH could not be convinced to help with the car seat today... so now tomorrow's the day!

I think that after engorgement your breasts should go down to the size they are now? Or at least that is what I've heard. I plan on buying one nursing bra, preferably something like what you have until afterwards, then I can go buy more. Mine are just so expensive to start out with that I don't want to buy any and not have them fit!

Mine (boobs) were all over the place.. I think i hae a few in seeral different sizes. Actually my FAV ones are from la vie on rose (not sure if u have one near u) they are like $10 each (awesome!) but have an underwire (which is not recommended but never gave me any issues). I do have a few $$$ ones from the maternity store and some of the night ones. I honestly wore them alot between washes. Just amke sure u have pads in them to prevent leaking all over them or u will e washing a lot. Sour BM does NOT smell nice lol

I didn't think La Vie en Rose had nursing bras. Thanks! I will check them out.
