Doctor Appointments:
November 20 (37.4 weeks) 38 week check up (with nurse) FORGOT

Based off my LMP I have a due date of Dec 8. Ultrasound measured for a due date of Dec 7. I was tracking ovulation with temping and that gives me a due date of Dec 11. My Dr is choosing to go with Dec 7 and I there fore will be moving these posts to Saturdays and going with my Dr's choice. 

Baby Names:
We all know now its a girl so HER name is Mya Sue 

Food cravings: 
I can't really think of many cravings besides loving the smell of my washing machine right after I wash a load of clothes LOL

FALSE LABOR! Yesterday I had "contractions" for 45 minutes and thought I was possibly in early labor. After getting baths for our girls and walking around cleaning, they stopped. I go to the Dr Wednesday and am debating the cervical check or not because it most likely will send me in to labor like it did with Madison and Macyn

My hips and lower back have been hurting more than normal (I'm sure preparing for birth) so I wake up time with my outer hips feeling like they're burning if I sleep on one side or the other for too long. When I get up to go potty it can also be hard to get up because I'm really sore.
