    That elusive "3-0" was a goal for me - and here I am, with no major issues. I delivered DS at 35 weeks due to toxemia, so I'm staying guarded and reminding myself anything can happen. But I'm trying to make it to at least 36-37 weeks before a c-section.

    I am starting my maternity leave soon too. I'm taking vacation 11/20-11/27, and then the official leave starts 11/30. So less than two weeks of work left for me, and I can't wait. I am finding it difficult to do my daily activities. Just bending over to pick something up, makes me see stars.

    I'm in quite a pickle too, but it won't change anything. My healthcare benefits are drastically changing between 2009 and 2010. If I deliver this year, I pay $300 and that's it. If I deliver next year I have a $5500 deductible before insurance covers anything. But my peri has told me he does not see me going into 2010, but I also have to keep in mind the boys could be in the NICU regardless. So just some stuff that's been going through my mind. But this is not determining my delivery - that's not an issue for me, I just want them here and healthy.

    Anyways, I'm rambling - but wanted to share my milestone. It's down to the wire now and I can't wait!

    Congratulations!! I'm 21 weeks and really hoping to make it to 36, as well.

    I wish health insurance was more stable from year to year...

    Keep us posted on your progress!

    Holly we are in EXACTLY the same boat. I had my ds at 35 weeks due to Pre eclampsia. I will be 30 weeks on Wednesday. My company also switch insurance palns starting enxt year that will have a higher deductible. I of course want healthy babies more than anything but I hope I have them before the year is over.

    I have made plans to start my leave on December 1st. I have vacation the week of Thanskgiving so I figure I just ahve really 2 more weeks of work.

    Good luck to you!
