I know I've been MIA quite a bit. Things seemed to be quite heated in here and I didn't want to jump in.

Today marks 38 weeks and I'm more than ready! We have the house all set up and I can't believe how well it works. It's such a tiny place I didn't think there would be room for any baby stuff but we were able to rearrange and make room for everything including a swing! We were blessed with two wonderful baby showers. One was from my friends and family, the other from the ladies at work. The majority of our items came from that. I'm pretty sure we have more clothes than he'll even wear lol!

I've been having lots of BH for the past couple weeks. Went up to L&D last Friday after work because they were 6 minutes apart for over 2 hours! Thought for sure it was the real thing, but nope. I was however dilated to 2 cm at that point, but of course as soon as they started monitoring me, they started to taper off and sent me home. Nearly every night I'll have a good couple hours of consistent BH. I'm kinda wondering how much more I'm dilating with them. Oddly enough, by doctor didn't check me at my appointment on Tuesday, so hopefully he'll do that next Tuesday at my next appointment.

As much as I want to hold my little one, like NOW, I'm more than happy to wait. My back has been killing me lately, and my pelvis is still ripping itself apart, but luckily I only have one more 4 hour shift at work then I'm done. So I think that will help me get through this pain. Knowing an end is coming helps for sure. We won't be pregnant forever ladies!

Isn't it crazy how fast things went by!??!

Glad to hear you had great showers, I had two too and he is definitely one spoiled little boy! All of his stuff is put away, and I'm amazed at how well it fit into our place too. But, we also moved a lot of our stuff out to storage for now...

I also think that he probably will never wear all the clothes he got! We have soooo much 0-3 and I'm pretty sure he's going to be a pretty big boy.

I've been having lots of BH as well, but only barely 1 cm dilated as of yesterday. I THINK he's hanging on until at least his due date- maybe longer. I'm super uncomfy but a big part of me still wants him to come late- if he comes 10 days late I get to stay out on leave until the day after Christmas. I can't help but think that would be pretty awesome!

You're getting close! So glad that you had great showers and you feel ready for LO to arrive. Now you get to relax and play the waiting game.

*Excitedly expecting baby girl number two!*

Thank you to Babydoll213 for my fabulous siggie!

It's hard being due near the end of the month isn't it?

Glad you got the house sorted though, mine is still a bit of a mess and I still have to fold and put away all the 0-3m clothing x.x so tired recently!

Appreciate being able to put your feet up after your last shift, you worked a lot longer then a lot of the people I know!
