Well, not gonna have a May baby after all! Working on 2 wks past "due" now, and I'm beyond frustrated. I think I've finally accepted that it will just happen when it happens. I thought it was starting the other night-- 1 min+ ctx 10-15 min apart all night long (They weren't that strong, just enough to keep me awake : ). I got up the next morning and went for a walk, and they started getting stronger and closer together--but then it just STOPPED : ) Baby is...
I used CPFs from day 1 w/ ds, and I had 36 nb dipes and 12-14 covers in each size. For him, this was NOT enough! He pooped constantly those first couple of months, and I was having to wash every day to keep up. He went through 15-18 dipes a day!! This time, I bought 3 dz more nb size to add to my stash and 8 more covers. I'm hoping that will be enough so that I will only have to wash every 3rd day like I did when he was older and wearing the reg size (I have 4 dz of...
Well, still no labor, but at least my mom hasn't called today! Yesterday, she kept calling, but I never answered. When dh got home, I made HIM answer it and told him to tell her I was in the shower. I guess she finally gets that I don't want to talk to her. She totally got her feelings hurt when I told her I don't want her at the hospital with me (she was there last time), and I'm afraid she's going to try and show up anyway. : I'll have to check the moon phases to...
Thanks you guys! I am trying hard to just relax today. I turned off the phone and the answering machine, and my mom freaked out and called dh at work : I give up. I'm just going to have to start laughing about it I guess. I've been having some pretty good braxton-hicks this afternoon--keep sending those labor vibes!!
When will this end?! I'm at 41 wks now, and NO signs of labor. My first was a week late, but I was at least having contractions off and on for several days before he arrived. It doesn't help that all of our family keeps calling. The other day, my mother actually said to me: "Well, it looks like you're going to need another c-section this time, so why don't you just go ahead and have it--we're ready to meet the baby!" Arrgghh! I think I'm now going to have to turn off...
I soooo feel for you!! I was unbelievably sick for the first 5 mos of both my pregnancies, and tried all the "tricks", but nothing seemed to help much. Have you tried ginger tea? That was easier for me to drink than plain water. I also chewed a lot of mint gum right after and between meals, and it helped sometimes if I ate small meals every couple of hours instead of three squares. This time around, having a 2 yr old to take care of all day made if even worse,...
I'm so sorry.Wishing you health and healing.
Thanks! Yes, I'm planning a VBAC this time, and I guess that's why I'm so nervous. I really hope labor starts before they start wanting to run all the tests, because I know that path will lead to c/s fast, especially if they think from the u/s that this baby will be bigger than ds was. I didn't go into labor with ds until 5 days past my due date, so I shouldn't be surprised that it hasn't happened yet. Friday I was having mild contractions all day and thought it...
I'm trying my best to just relax, but I'm getting anxious this time around. It doesn't help that everyone keeps calling to "check" on me. I think I'm going to have to just unplug the phone. My CNM wants to do an u/s and non-stress test at 41 wks, and now I'm starting to worry that labor won't start before my appt and the doc will try to push me into another c/s. I'm ready for this baby!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Please send labor vibes my way, and if anyone has any...
My mother is driving me insane! I'm days away from my due date, and she's been calling me at least twice a day. We have caller ID, so I don't always answer the phone when I see it's her, and when I do I usually regret it. First, she asks how I'm "feeling", then, when tell her nothing is happening, she acts like I'm trying to keep something from her and starts asking a million questions about what happened at my last checkup, what's going to happen at my next checkup, am I...
