Sorry I haven't updated.  Here is a quick update on the status of our little Boo;
My Ultrasound to measure just how big this little guy might be has been rescheduled for this Thursday, the 10th @ 8pm!  And get this, they want me to drink 12 ounces of water 30 minutes before the apt time & NOT use the bathroom...I sure hope they don't mind cleaning up after me LOL!
On Friday, the 4th of July I had some intense pain "down there".  Not contractions, but certainly something I never experienced with the girls.
Since Sunday afternoon I have been having contractions VERY sporadically.  And they stay with me if I'm sitting, walking, and even laying down on the left side.  (And yes, I am staying very well hydrated.)  So I know something is starting to change.  For those that are curious, they range from 8 minutes apart to 14 minutes.  I always get at least a few to deal with.  
To be honest, at this point, I would love to have this little guy 10 days before the due date.  Why?  Because it would be on my birthday.  Now how cool would that be?  I mean, I don't really celebrate anymore anyway, so I'd love to share it with my son.  (That sounds/looks weird, my son, wow.)  But on the other hand, my stomach hurts so bad from stretching so much, my hips are killing me, & sleep, well, hopefully I'll be able to get some sleep by this time next year ;-)

Ok, well, if the Ultrasound Tech gives me any info I promise to share it with you by Friday.  Otherwise, my next mid-wife apt is next Tuesday evening.
Thanks for your prayers!

I'll be praying for you. I know all about the hip pain. Elek was lying on my left hip the last 3 1/2 months of my pregnancy. There were day that I limped because it hurt so bad!

Also praying that Baby Boy sleeps through the night...instantly!!
