Quoting Kimberly!=):" Today sucked. Worked for a total of like 53 minutes today and then went home sick. And I called off ... [snip!] ... I'm getting married six weeks after LO is due so I hope I can shed some of these pounds by then... but i'm not stressing. "
Yeah looser stools the closer you get to delivery are a common thing in pregnancy. I'm not sure why, I can't remember. Just remember that much. lol. I am due the same day as you! 34.5 weeks as well for me.
Definitely been going more frequently than i was in the beginning of my pregnancy. I've not been able to sleep too much at once either. I keep waking up starving but I always feel full after I only eat a few bites of something. Must not be much room left in there for food. lol.
As far as packing for the hospital - you may want to call and ask your hospital to be sure but most that I know of will provide you with everything you need while there. The things you pack are just extra ya know. They will have hospital gowns for you and mesh underwear and giant pads, soap, shampoo, etc. For the baby they will have tons of diapers, wipes, and onesies and formula if you are wanting that. also they usually have paci's if you allow your baby to have them. Any of the diapers and wipes that are left over when you are done get to all be sent home with you too. I was also sent home with my sons' first bathtub and bath sponge as a bunch of other random things. I definitely overpacked the first time I went! This time I'm gonna try to pack just some things for us both to wear home from the hospital and then maybe some stuff to keep my comfy while im there. I think I wanna bring my own panties since i dont care for the mesh, just get some in a larger size for cheap that i can throw away later. make sure whatever you pack you don't mind getting blood on it because that's a likely scenario. i may bring m mp3 player and some hard candies to suck on during labor since they wont allow you to eat anything.
