So, when you are done giving birth, hop on Amazon and order a carseat with two day shipping, delivered to your neighbor or parents if they are nearby, or send your DH to babies r us. You should have one by the time you leave the hospital.
LOL you are too funny!!!

This baby won't come early. Watch. I'll be pregnant till 43.5 wks.
This totally happened to me! We had nothing ready, no carseat yet, no hospital bag packed yet, Christmas morning 35 weeks and water breaks! My baby shower was to be 3 days later! Yea it was a bit stressful but we managed

Hope your bubs stays put!

thanks! I am trying. I have 3 kids, and I can't stand a mess, so it's very hard. But I am trying.

I'm def not dehydrated.

I have no idea what this is.

It is so out of character for my body. My last 3 pregnancies were pretty much without any issues at all. I don't get it. I know it could be nothing. But it's annoying and a tad scary

I'd be worried also! When I was having contractions at 37 weeks in my second pregnancy (due to a stomach virus, I'm sure), I drank some rum. Just 1/2 a shot about 1 hour apart, but it helped me. In Spritual Midwifery half of the birth stories are "I started feeling contractions so I got drunk"....lol. I don't recommend that, but a little bit of something might help calm contractions. Losing the plug would worry me more, and I don't know that there's anything you can do about that.

Thank you! I appreciate your input!!

The only pregnancy where I had some early contractions was my 2nd. But I was, like 30 wks (IIRC - it was still early), and they were just painful BH contrax, no discharge or other changes. I also gained WAY TOO MUCH weight, (like 60+ lbs!) and my poor body was so stressed from that (this time I've only gained about 30 so far).... and my MW rec'd that I have a drink and relax. It DID help me.

I am not opposed to one drink here and there in pregnancy, I guess I just hadn't thought of it....

I will try a wine cooler tonight after the kids go to bed.

I feel pretty tired and raggedy right now. I did try to lay down, and I managed to "rest" (while my 22 m/o napped, and my 6 y/o and 4 y/o played a LOUD game of legos) for about 45 mins. I drank a BIG glass of water - probably at least 16 oz - which is a lot for me to fit in my preggo belly! - and I did have 2 contractions while I was laying down.

I feel like a ran a marathon. But I haven't done much today, really.

Maybe I'm getting sick or something??
