Still here...and still pregnant!

I should be used to it by now, right? I've seen 4 due dates come and go. I scheduled a non-stress test for one week from today, but am really hoping I'll never make it to that appointment. After seeing the midwife this morning, I am feeling a little better about the baby's lack of movement yesterday. I know it's just getting really cramped in there for the poor kid. These last few days of pregnancy are always the toughest and I'm just trying to hang in there. I've been "sleeping" (if you can call it sleeping!) in the recliner to help with both my back pain and my heartburn. I am REALLY looking forward to the day very soon when I can lay on my stomach in my own bed. It will feel like heaven!

Other than my own physical limitations, all is going well. My mom has been a tremendous help to me and has washed up all the baby clothes (better late than never, huh?). She has also been cooking for me and the boys. Maybe I should request something spicy to help get this show on the road!

Thank you so much for all your well wishes! I'm really thinking I'll have something to report by Friday or Saturday.

I've heard that some people believe in eggplant parmesean. Maybe an Italian dinner out with Hubs? A walk and then more rest? A conversation with baby that everyone is ready to meet him now?
Yeah to mom for the cooking. Stay hydrated!

Thanks for the advice. Kinda tough to stay hydrated when I'm having to pee every 1/2 hour!

More contractions tonight, but nothing regular enough to get excited about. Sweet Mother of God, what is the hold up???
