I'm glad to hear this! We're expecting baby #2 any day now and our son just turned 3. :)
I am only 35 weeks and already totally wishing I'd go into labour. I don't remember feeling this way last time, but I think that's because I was SCARED and now I've been through birth once, so I am not as terrified. Maybe I should be! Wishing you a quick and easy one!

When I was seven months pregnant with my first, my last trip was to go visit my parents in Oregon. When I went through US customs (I live in Canada) the agent asked where I was going, and then..."are you going to pop while you're there?" I still had 2 full months to go, and was by no means huge at that point, but still... Now I'm at 27 weeks and feel huge and clumsy, but my doctor was on me at my last appointment to "eat more". I'm just sick of the once-over and thoughtless comments EVERY. SINGLE. TIME. I see certain people in my life. Argh. Another good one, with 1st baby: my MIL, who was blind, by the way, repeatedly told me I'd "better watch myself" about my weight - and the first time she told me it, I'd gained only 3 lbs net, so I was absolutely flabbergasted. When I'd hug her, she'd grope my back to see if there was more to hold onto. When she said it again at the middle of the dinner table in front of guests, my husband freaked out and called her on it. They didn't speak again for two months.
Can I be a preggo pal too? I'm 14 weeks along with my second! With my son, I lost about 7 pounds in the first tri, and it took until 20 weeks to get back up to my pre-pregnancy weight. Made up for it in the 3rd trimester and gained 31 total, although getting the flu the week before he was born took off 5, so net was 26 pounds. This one, I was a size smaller when I got pregnant (although the same weight, thanks to lots of marathon-training muscle) and I've lost 10 pounds - the nausea has been relentless and I can't even be in the same room as a piece of meat. Weird. People keep asking me what diet I'm on and what workouts I'm doing. It feels kind of weird. I am getting a belly though, and I bought some maternity jeans last week. "Skinny" maternity jeans. I think it is messed up that I couldn't buy "skinny" jeans until I got pregnant and puked a lot. It's all good - I'm one of those people who can't take off the last 10 lbs of baby weight until they stop breastfeeding, so I should be puffed up something fierce by this time next year!

Shawn has had a pretty serious back injury in the past. Maybe it flared up. He's a wonderful colleague.
