We got our notice today that a 2-bedroom apartment in our building is going to be available to us on May 15th. I'm really excited about having more space and for Marcos to finally have his own bedroom, but I'm kind of stressed out with the move. At least it's within the same building, so we don't have to be carrying the furniture too far or load everything onto a moving truck. My grandparents were talking about coming for a visit so I might ask if they want to help us out by babysitting Marcos while DH and I do the move.

Still hanging out waiting! At my appointment today she offered to do a stretch and sweep but I declined, I'm not quite ready lol...but we'll do one next week. When I was leaving, she said "see you next week...or sooner!" CRAZY! That's awesome about the apartment! Our old place, you couldn't move within the building, they didn't allow it. Stupid! Luckily we got a 2 bedroom in the first place. But I still don't understand their policy (something to do with cleaning costs etc.?).

I wasn't offered a stretch and sweep until the day after my due date. I was 2 weeks overdue in all, and I had two stretch and sweeps but it did absolutely nothing. One of my friends had one at 39 weeks and went into labour that evening, so maybe it does work for some (or maybe it was a coincidence?) I even tried raspberry leaf tea and acupuncture when I was 1 1/2 weeks overdue, yet nothing. Then the day before my c-section I got desperate and took some castor oil. Cleaned out my bowels but that was pretty much it!

I went 10 days over with my first son and 8 days over with my little girl. I was never offered any stretches or sweeps so on, actually I was never even checked until I got to the hospital for my induction both times. Lucky, my last little baby decided to come at 38 weeks! LOL

It will only work if I'm ready to go into labour anyways, so maybe next week I'll be more ready lol. I've been drinking the RRL tea since 34 weeks and will start EPO this week. I'm relatively laid back right now so not too fussed. We'll see if I am overdue and what my mindset is LOL.

Hoping you won't go overdue. It sucks! I hope my next pregnancy is not 42 weeks, that's for sure!

So we went to see the apartment today... holy cow! The man who was living there had been in that apartment for 30 years, so that's pretty much how long it's been since it's had significant updates. Everything in there is super old, the bathroom is from the 70s (the toilet, sink and bathtub are dark brown!!!), the doorknobs, light fixtures, dirty curtains, ceiling fans... everything is OLD! Our master bedroom has a dirty dark brown shag carpet with a pole in the middle of the room (he was an elderly gentleman and it was to help him get out of his bed). My superintendent says they are going to be doing a lot of renovations in there but she doesn't know what exactly - she'll have a list in a few days from now. It's kind of scary because we have to commit to taking the apartment without even knowing what it's going to look like by the time we move in! On the one hand, if they redo the whole place from top to bottom it's going to be awesome because everything will be brand new... but on the other hand, if they only do limited renos, it's going to look so dumpy! We're going to wait until we see the list of renovations they plan on doing before we commit to anything. The bathroom seems to be the dealbreaker... that thing definitely needs to be gutted. What a nightmare!

Levi John arrived early this morning at 12:50am after less than 2 hours of labour and pushing combined, in what was almost a homebirth. 8lbs 12oz, 22 inches long. We are all doing fantastic! I will post more later!

It is taking me longer to write the birth story than the whole labour time LOL. Still tweaking and such - I'll link it probably tomorrow. Still need to pull pictures off the camera The cell phone pictures I can access via FB are awful.

He is so beautiful Jess! I absolutely love the picture with Cam, you and Levi. How does he like being a big brother?

He's adjusting really well Kelly! He looks for him when he wakes up in the morning and after his nap. He yells "baby!" and wants to kiss and hug him all the time. We're still working on "gentle" though...he's only 20 months old so he's a bit heavy handed and we have to watch him. We had our one week appointment today with my midwife, and Levi's already regained his birthweight! He was born at 8lbs 12oz, dropped to 8lbs 3oz and was 8lbs 13oz today. His colour is good, poops and pees a lot, sleeping decently (for now lol)...busy with 2 boys though!
