[Pregnancy Filter]Did you/your partner deliver early? Baby measured big?

Help ease the mind of this mama. When I went to the maternal fetal specialist two weeks ago at 33 weeks, my baby was measuring four weeks ahead for the head and stomach - in the 99th percentile. I am 35 weeks and extremely large and uncomfortable. Your experience and anecdata appreciated - did you have a big baby and did you deliver early? How did you get through the last weeks of pregnancy with a large baby? [more inside]

Baby countdown - how should I spend my last weeks before I'm a mom?

I'm on maternity leave now, at 32 weeks, since my job is very physical. I'm still feeling really good, though sometimes a little tired. What kinds of things should I be doing with my day to make the most of this time? What do you wish you had done before becoming a parent? Looking for all kinds of suggestions, from health-related to frivolous splurges.

What do you wish you'd brought to the hospital when labor started?

My wife and I have our hospital bags packed, ready to take with us when we're heading to the hospital to have the baby. We've got the various odds and ends like a change of clothes, toiletries, chapstick, devices & chargers, camera, etc. If you've done this before, what do you wish you'd brought (or what did you make sure you brought the second time)?

C'mon, baby! Don't say maybe!

This is not my first baby. I am close to one week past my due date. No signs of labor. First, tell me how to survive because my first baby was here by now and I just cannot do this much longer. Second, why haven't I gone into labor yet and what if I don't? [more inside]
