Re: This is just CRUEL.....
I can relate. My first was 36, 2nd was 38+3. With #2, I felt I needed to be ready at 36w, then spent then next 2 weeks twiddling my thumbs--and you can believe I was an emotional mess with nothing to do!
I'll be 32w tomorrow, and this time, I know better. I'm holding off and dragging my feet with just about everything. I'll still be prepared at 37w (planned HB) because my labors tend to be really quick and intense, but in the event I end up pregnant beyond 38+3, I'll have knitting, sewing, and NaNoWriMo to occupy me.
