Yeah it's pretty much impossible to tell when someone will go into labor. I got really annoyed over my first cervix check because they're useless. As was proven when I was at nothing (0 and 0) on Wednesday and showed up at the hospital on Sunday at 2 cm dilated and 90% effaced. Things happen when they happen!

Yeah I didn't even get cervical checks for that reason. Clarissa came at one day shy of 41 weeks with no warning either it just started.

The ring sling I had was a handmade one and it seemed too big for her and the fabric just wasn't working for her size so I had to get a new one. I just got it this past week so hoping to use it more now. I also have an ergo but haven't been out a lot with our stupid weather so haven't used it much yet. It's great though, really comfortable. I can see using it on walks a lot when the weather warms up. Sigh. Spring where are you?

One month to my due date, one week left of work.



And a friend I met through another online dog forum surprised me with this today in the mail. She knew I was upset that my baby wouldn't have a Pitbull in her life so she made sure there would be a little Pitbull in her nursery:

Allison, I can only imagine how uncomfortable you are. ): I'm approaching 30 weeks and still pretty small, thank god, but I'm still super uncomfortable.

Her head keeps dropping and then walking is nearly impossible. One more week of work!

TEE HEE I was so mad I was barely showing but now I'm 8 months pregnant and look about 4 months pregnant and I can still tie my shoes and shave my legs no problem

On the downside no one gives me their seat on the subway and I just look chubby not cute and pregnant...I guess it evens out.

I'm having a really hard time finding a pediatrician. I tried the insurance company's website - half the ones listed are specialists listed as general practicing pediatricians. The closest one I can find is 40+ minutes away. It also doesn't help that our insurance is going to change a few months into the baby's life, so I'm trying to find one that takes both, which seems like it's really limiting.

I'm so truly jealous MM-- I'm currently at work hiding in a back office because I had to take my shoes off since my feet are so swollen.
