Hello EDD - now's where the baby??? - Page 2

post #21 of 28
Janis... You do have a valid point. lol

I am going to a hospital with a midwife... it's what makes DH feel more comfortable, and I honestly am too scared to do a homebirth myself. My MW is awesome, and she is really laid back, but she is really concerned about my swelling and my fibromyalgia is starting to flare up a bit with the additional swelling and shifting of my hips. For medical reasons I'd have to consider induction but am praying so hard it does not come to that. I'm trying everything natural and just praying. MW is praying with me too and checks in making sure I'm doing the EPO and cohoshes and such. She knows how much I don't want a chemical induction.

She's had plenty of moms go past 43 weeks (better not be ME!!!!).

I think by 43 weeks many of us would be wondering if the baby could just be pulled out ... <sigh> terrible joke!! I got very little sleep last night

I'm already plotting if I go past 41 weeks, that I'm just steering clear of my OB's office and the hospital to avoid all ways of somehow getting roped into induction or scared with some NST results to go the route of a repeat c/s. I know I'm going to hear the "dead baby" issue sooner than later.

I feel like mine is ready to fall out. No need to pull.

I truly don't mean to sound heartless or dismiss any valid concerns ... I know that there ARE risks. I'm sorry for fibromyalgia and other issues. I hope that you don't need an induction.

As long as I don't have any risk factors, then it's nobody's beeswax how far I go with this pregnancy.

But, I really am finally DONE with being pregnant. I only just got here a day ago, though. MW thinks it's funny. (it is funny) I've known her for 6 years, she delivered our DD2 - she's never seen me happier. But she has seen the subtle change in my demeanor in the last 48 hours, too. I *wanted* to be done a week ago, but I just couldn't face it. And NOW I *am* done!

However, I don't want anything forcefully evicted from my uterus. (I say that today ... ask me Monday. )

Janis - - if anyone deserves to feel that way, it's you! Maybe you feel that way cause that babe is finally deciding it's time! ::

I was frustrated then panicky. I am so thankful everyone let me vent, too! DH was getting how I felt - though he did try! I really felt like something was wrong. But again, I think panic set in because being so late is so foreign to me. Today is the first day I've really felt decent in awhile. ( you can see from my other posts today). I know the fatigue will set in again soon.

Each day is one less to go through, right! That's what I'm telling myself now - one more day closer (or when I'm really aggravated - I tell myself "24 hrs LESS" lol! The number is bigger and sounds better I guess, lol)

Thinking of you!

two days ago I was in the WORST mood--cranky and inconsolable now I am back to just waiting. I'm 40 weeks, 5 days. Baby will come when baby is ready--I just have to keep telling myself (and everyone else) that. I dont want to let myself get too down about it--baby has to come out at some point soon, right?

My EDD Jan 13. My first went to 42 weeks. I know this is likely cause she was ready but my first labor started 18 hrs after I went skipping outside for maybe 10 mins. Jump rope would probably have been similar I just remember each skip feeling her head bumping my cervix. I must have looked very strange but who cares right?
Just in case this helps anyone...good luck!

woohoo! .... Yes, I'm *still* pregnant!

I'm going to try a different tactic today ... I'm going to be EXCITED about being 100 days overdue. I'm hoping to join my mother and kids for a day of shopping. :

Maybe if I plan things and do things, then the baby will decide it's ready??

The weather is dreary here. Our housekeeper came back from her holiday sooner than expected, so she's here today cleaning. Yay!
