That's happening to me, too!! My best friend text'd me today with "No labor yet?" Um...yeah, sorry, had the baby and just decided not to tell anybody.
And bless my poor MIL's heart, but I can't even call her anymore without her getting excited. (Both MIL and best friend are going to be at the birth).
I still can't believe I feel like giving up already and I'm only 38/2! I went and saw a friend who's a midwife the other night to make sure baby was head's down (because I couldn't tell) and as she's feeling around she just gives me this look and is like "You know this baby is huge, right?" She said it's easily 8 1/2 lbs already and so far engaged that she couldn't even FIND the head - the shoulder was all she could find above my public bone. I feel like I have a giant bowling ball between my legs, AND we think the hand is by the head because something is constantly hitting/pinching my cervix. I want this baby out now!! I've started pumping (had supply issues that nobody could explain with DS and had to supplement with formula the entire time) in hopes it'll help with my milk AND that the stimulation will help bring on labor. I tried eating pineapple yesterday but it was so acidic I thought my tongue was going to melt away. I've doing EPO both orally and an insert at night. PLEASE come out!!!! I'm afraid the newborn diapers I worked so hard on for so many months are going to be useless by the time I have this giant baby.
