37 weeks yesterday, AND I have a 5 year old. :) It has been a busy week - lots of birthday fun. Today we are taking it easy, which involves Sophie playing with/reading her new birthday stuff and me laying down and drinking raspberry leaf tea. Because yeah - 37 weeks! While I am all for letting baby come when baby is ready, I'm making sure he feels invited to come AT ANY TIME NOW. Though this is also a week off of the topical steroid, so next week would be probably better. :p That said, if I had all the time in the world to myself I would be spending it eating (gluten and dairy free for at least one more week to see whether it helps my skin), sleeping, walking or swimming, drinking mama teas, doing yoga, having sex and taking evening primrose oil. And whatever else there is that encourages a ready baby to be born! As it is I'm just doing as many of those things as I can fit into a day and hoping 3ish weeks passes quickly. And that I manage not to get staph again in the meantime. :/

Baby is practicing breathing (I saw it on the ultrasound) and is in launch position. We are looking forward to meeting him...

Wow, I can't believe you're already close to popping! Glad things are moving along and many crossed fingers and toes for an easy delivery followed by a quick recovery of all skin issues!

Soon! Should the skin thing pretty much resolve once baby is here? I hope so! I bet Sophie is excited. :) I forgot how close their birthdays are, Ari is five as of last week too.

There's no guarantee the skin stuff will stop after he is born, but that is the hope, yes! They feel it's an inappropriate immune response to the pregnancy, so the hope is one my blood clears of baby whatever, it'll start to ease up. Fingers way, way crossed.

Yay for launch position! All those things you're doing to encourage baby to be born sound like things I would love to be doing, too. Sadly, I cannot claim needing to welcome and encourage a baby to be born to take the time to DO those things. Can't wait to hear about the arrival of the new little one!
