    @78h2o: I keep forgetting to call our family photographer. I'd love to do a family shoot in our neighborhood before we move to the burbs.

    @78h2o: We will do newborn photos with the same photographer that did P's. That is, if this baby EVER comes out (okay, my due date isn't until Friday, but I'm getting anxious because my in-laws are coming two weeks after the due date, and I really don't want baby to be much younger than two weeks...and also, I have 3rd trimester insomnia, and haven't gotten more than about 3 hours a night in the last week. Plus, I'm just being whiney... )

    @Jess1483: Hugs, enjoy the quiet of just one kid! Two kids is a different experience, easy at some parts, tougher at others. I agree with my parents' neighbor who said that the second kid just fits in with the family and routine.

    @cascademom: Yes, I'm really trying to enjoy my last few days with just my big guy. I was doing really well with that until I started to stress about the in-laws' visit. And the not sleeping. If I'm not sleeping, I want a good reason!

    @78h2o: precious! We are getting newborn shots! I got a package that included maternity, newborn, 6 months and one year shots!

    @78h2o: @hocuspocus @MrsBrewer: super cute photos!

    I was debating about doing newborn photos and then had DS early so I am now just looking into it. Little behind the curb but I wanted more family photos then just standard newborn ones.

    @hocuspocus: She is so gorgeous! Looks like she has dimples?!?

    @MrsBrewer: Aww, so sweet!!!

    @rpparker: That's great! We already paid for our newborn pics, but I was thinking we should have done a package like that. Maybe I will see if we can convert? Our photographer is relatively new, so she's pretty reasonable (newborn pics were $150 for a 4 hr shoot and a cd of all pics). I should lock her in for milestone pics before her rates go up.

    @cascademom: Well, the in-laws have decided not to come until August, so that takes the pressure off a bit. DH's grandmother is in the country from abroad so they were going to try to make it, but they think she's too fragile to make the trip, so they've changed back to the original plan. Easier on us, a bummer that she won't get to meet the little one (this time, at least). A little less stress on the time-line, though!

    I don't want to admit this, because it'll probably be the end of them, but I've had contractions all day, and they're now regularly a minute long and 5 minutes apart. I still hesitate to call them "real," though, because they're nothing like the contractions I had with DS. I don't know when/if to call or go in, though... My only concern is waiting too long since I'm GBS+, but I think I can wait until they're legitimately painful (they make me catch my breath now, but I can walk/talk through them, sort of...)

    @Jess1483: That sounds really promising! If they get any closer together, I'd call and at least see what they say.. Are your parents going to watch P? It might be a good idea to have caregivers ready to go in case things turn fast and furious. Good luck! I hope this is the real deal... I had a ton of "false labor" with both kiddos and I know it totally wears on you! .(... since, of course, it is always at it's worst when you're trying to sleep!).

    @78h2o: @MrsBrewer: ugh. Another false alarm. I went to bed and they faded (again). Still having them, still painful, but not as regular or as painful. This is so frustrating! I'm glad I didn't go in, though. My parents will come take care of p (they live about 7 minutes away), and I feel like they've been on call for two weeks now.

    When they got painful last night, I was also having some really intense radiating nerve pains down my left leg. I've had them on and off through pregnancy, but not this often. I kept having to fall to my knees because the leg couldn't support my weight. So that seems like a fun addition to the contractions.

    My husband has two important meetings this morning he won't have to reschedule. So that's a plus, I suppose. And I did get slightly more than 3 hours of sleep last night by sheer force of will, haha.

    @Ash: Congratulations on your little girl! Sending good vibes to her in the NICU. Hope you are healing well. Looks like I might be a June mama with you. My amniotic fluid is measuring low. I go back tomorrow with the potential for "go time" if my levels haven't increased.
