    I kept meaning to post here, but I've been so busy with work: tax season and training my replacement!

    Besides heartburn, achey hips/joints and sleeping poorly I'm doing great. We have our c-section scheduled for March 13th, so a little under 5 weeks to go.

    I hope everyone else is doing well. We are so close! Yesterday, my dad said "It will be a relief when the baby is finally here. You're almost done." So true! Obviously once they are here we will have new worries, but it's different. :hugs:

    Lamago yes it is. We had one done around 28 or 29 weeks I think? Terrible I can't remember but it was neat and totally worth it! Do you have the option of doing one?

    Baby Camden as been measuring large (4 weeks ahead) for quite a long time. I am 36 weeks tomorrow and see the perinatologist to see what he recommends and we will decide if we will induce at 37 or 38 weeks. I am trying to avoid a csection if possible. With gestational diabetes you can't tell if they have the shoulder issue until birth. My last u/s had estimated him at 8lb10oz already. Hopefully that proves to be inaccurate at the specialist tomorrow.

    8lb10 already! I hope they have that wrong. I have heard that determining weight through scan or measurements isn't always accurate.

    DH doesn't want to get in the pool with me but will help me with massages and encouragement. Which is fine by me. I have explicitly told family members that I don't want anyone else at the hospital until our little man is born. My soon to be sil said she would be over when they hear I'm in labour. I was very gracious and just said thank you but I don't want anyone else there but DH. I've said they can visit us in hospital once he is born. Is anyone else having to set ground rules for family/friends?

    Peachy, that's the best one I've seen. We decided not to do one. Hope the specialist gives you a more reasonable measurement.

    I haven't had anyone suggest being present during labor but I'm sure my family while in the hospital waiting room.

    I can't believe we're getting so close!

    Flou - I am jeleous of your water birth plan. There are no hospitals in my province that offer it. I could have gone with a midwife in Winnipeg and had one, but I didn't feel comfortable or confident with the midwife I was given. Hope all goes smooth for you :)

    Peachy - 8'10 already! Holy cow! With half a pound added weekly at this point I sure hope they are off! My last was an even 9lbs so I'm a little worried about this one being bigger....the doctor said yesterday that baby doesn't feel overly large at this point :)

    So who in here is due first? I can't remember.....

    I had my 34 week check yesterday and all is well. Baby is still head down but not yet engaged. I didn't gain any weight in the last 4 weeks! I was surprised by that as I feel like I have gained. BP was nice and low. I go in next at 37 weeks at which time I'll have my GBS swab done. Only weird thing going on is a numb spot on the top, right dude of my bump. I pulled a muscle there a few weeks back while coughing and once the pain subsided it just went numb?!?! Doctor figures something has been pinched and should heal up soon or after baby comes.

    That's from the first page! I'm actually scheduled for a c-section on March 13th though, so my babe won't be making an appearance any later than that.

    Flou, my ILs were originally planning on being out of the country for the entire month of March (plans were made well after we told them of the pregnancy). DH ended up telling them that he was disappointed and upset with them for not wanting to even be in the country when our baby is born and MIL did a complete 180 and started talking about moving in with us for a week or two! We had already talked about it in advance luckily, so his response was a quick no. He told them that they are welcome to come visit at the hospital, it would be appreciated if they wanted to take DS on a day trip here or there and help with laundry or housework but that if anything else was needed we would let them know. MIL is still trying to wiggle her way into spending a night- or several- (they only live 40 minutes away). Our answer will remain consistent though no matter how many different ways she tries to present her case!

    I had the feeling like AF is coming for most of today. My lower back aches and I did have that dull menstrual like ache for a few hours. But I don't think it is necessarily going to happen soon. I've still got just over 2 weeks until my edd. I think it is actually because of bubs' head engaging and him pushing down. He has definitely dropped tho.

    Im hoping to go a little over my due date.. Trying to manifest the 20th.

    I'm also not having anyone come to the birth other than hubby. My mom tried to insist, and I had to be firm about my decision.. She was a little hurt but I'd rather that than have my labor stall out bc my mom is annoying me or something.

    So anyone have weird weight gain? From Jan- Feb I gained 2 lbs, then Feb 1- Feb 15 I gained 10 lbs, then since Feb 15 I've LOST 6 lbs! So now I'm at a net total of 31 lbs. And I only get weighed at doctors appt so it's always same scale.

    Glad that everyone is doing so well, I can't believe our rainbows are practically here!

    Hi ladies!

    My section has been moved up to this Friday because we discovered the cord is around baby's neck. I'm excited but worried, I just want everything to be ok.

    Swamp, for the weight gain thing- I was gaining very slowly (14 lbs in 32 weeks) then in the last month I've gained almost 10 lbs! Dr is not concerned though and at the end is when the baby gains quickly.

    Good luck to everyone!! So close now

    Foosh - That's a little scary that the cord is around baby's neck! Glad they are aware of it though. Friday?! 2 days till you meet your wee one!

    Swampmaiden - Lets switch due dates. I'll give you the 23rd so I can move up a few days ;) I'm really hoping to not go late. As for weight, I'll update tomorrow after my appointment!

    How's everyone else?!

    Foosh I hope everything went well for you yesterday and you have a healthy little rainbow to cuddle.

    Not much to report here. I had one day earlier in the week where it felt like my period was due but it all went away. I guess its just my body gearing up for the big event. I am not due for nearly another two weeks but I hope he doesn't keep me waiting too much longer after that.

    Still no baby announcements, eh?!

    SM - My weight the other day was up another 9lbs. The appointment prior to that I stayed the sane for 4 weeks. So in total I am up 29lbs.

    Flou - Seems like the period cramping is pretty normal. It really could happen any day now though!

    Afm - Dr informed that baby has dropped low in my pelvis which explains my need to pee every 2 hours at night! She didn't do an internal so I have no clue what my cervix is like. Next appointment is on the 16th.

    Hi ladies, Charlotte Louise was born yesterday at 4:35 pm; 6lbs 14oz. The cord was wrapped tightly around her neck twice but she did amazing. We are both doing well, I'm not on any pain meds and should be released tomorrow!

    I hope everyone else has the same success.

    Congrats Foosh :)

    Very happy to hear that things went well, despite the possible complication!

    Im about to hit 39 weeks on Wednesday... really hoping the baby can hang tight until just past her due date. Adult schedules being what they are and everything lol
