3 weeks to go! I'm really in the home stretch now. I had my Group B Strep test last week (negative, thank goodness) and did an internal exam since I was already undressed. I'm a fingertip dilated and 50% effaced! There's not much going on down there, I'm only having BH contractions a few times a day, a little bit of cramping and pressure, but I think he'll stay put for at least another 2 weeks. I'm having non-stress tests at my weekly OB appointment but they have been fine so far. I'm still frantically trying to get my work done, I'll feel much better once I wrap everything up. Unfortunately I've had some angry and complaining clients over the last few weeks but I'm doing my best and realize I can't please everyone. I'll update again next week. Fingers crossed that he comes a little early!

Still hanging in here at 35 weeks! Just a few weeks till October 12. I'm hoping I'll go a little early this time. It's more difficult at this stage for me than it was with Baby S. The baby's head is really low, and when he moves it around it feels really uncomfortable against my cervix and also like I might pee my pants! I'm as big now as I was when S was born, I can't even imagine how I'll be in 5 weeks. I'm running out of maternity clothes that fit. I'm still working a lot (though I have blocked out some "work at home" days so that I can rest). The Bunny is helping me more with S and around the house, it's getting too hard to wrangle our very energetic 2 year old. We're pretty much ready for the arrival of (as yet nameless) baby brother, I brought up the infant clothes, bassinet, etc. and made some cute curtains for his room. A friend will lend us her crib when her toddler is done with it, until then he'll sleep in the bassinet or rock n' play. S is still in his crib, we're keeping him in it till he's ready to go to his "big boy" bed, which is currently in baby brother's room. I'll try to update more often from here on out!
