ROFL! What are you wanting to do differently? Are you having a c-sec or induction?

I hope you have that baby soon! I ALWAYS have many days, sometimes even a full week of labor that comes and goes, it's exhausting. Nothing this time, though. That is awesome that you got the house clean! I'm in the middle of doing that now, as I have a very strong feeling I'm having this baby in the next week or week and a half. Definitely in the next 2 weeks. I usually know about a week before hand, so we'll see. Of course, it would be nice to have relax time after I get the house completely done, and I'm estimating it will take me until the end of this week atleast.

I was spoiled with a 6 hour and 2 hour labor for my girls, so I'm not sure what to think about this several days in labor thing. Hubby went to work today and chasing the kids isn't exactly easy mid contraction!
On a better note, I was so convinced I was going to have a baby last night that my house is now very clean and I cooked a ham and made 7 freezer meals. With my last baby, a whole bunch of people told me they would bring meals and only 2 actually did, so I took matters into my own hands. If people bring me food, it just means I'll have to cook less later.
I hope that baby comes for you soon!!
