Starting a new "who's left" thread - Page 2

post #21 of 88
I'm still here, was due yesterday, so 40wks 1 day. First babe, so not surprised I'd be a bit late, but still wanting to meet babe since I am a bit nervous about something going wrong (I hung out in the loss forum a lot last year after a miscarriage, and have probably a few more fears of birth than I would have otherwise)

it doesn't help that the babe has moved anterior (which I know is good for birth) but I don't feel movement as often or easily as a few days ago so I keep freaking myself out. I'm super comfortable staying pregnant otherwise though, which kind of makes me feel like Ill go late! I am NOT looking forward to all the comments at work though. I took today off, hoping babe is just a day late instead of a week, but it'll probably be more like a week

37 weeks and still here, in no particular rush. Trying to enjoy the last moments of being pregnant and just having us as a family. Also trying to enjoy sleeping through the night for the last time in years.

I'm 37 wks, and happy to see there are lots of us due at the end of the month! I was hesitant to kind of assign myself to this DDC, even though I'm barely active, since I'm due the 28th and my last 2 babies were 10 days "late". I've been hoping from the beginning that this baby won't wait so long. I've been having dreams of having the baby NOW and reading/hearing all kinds of "early" stories, it has given me false hope. Today, I'm feeling more settled into the "three more weeks" idea. I have stuff to do, the kids have swim lessons, etc. I'd like to have the baby before July 4 b/c my parents are coming that week and they leave early the 5th. I'd love for them to be able to meet the baby while they are here. And I don't really want another holiday baby (#3 was labor day weekend). But whatever. "Babies are born on their birthdays" has always been my motto. It's SO HARD to surrender that control though. Ugh. And my back totally aches tonight from being on the computer this evening, so now I can't sleep and I'm BACK on the computer. smart. I need a bowl of cereal and to listen to hypnobabies and go to bed. We'll see how that goes! I have my midwife's home visit tomorrow, so I need to clean my room too. Bleh. blah blah blah. Guess I needed to ramble that out. Hope we all have a GREAT week and that some of you have your babies!!! Oh and dh is gone all week, so I don't need to have mine yet anyway!

I'm 37 weeks too... I'm not expecting to have this baby before my due date, though I would be happy if he arrived a little early
post #25 of 88
I'm here, 38 weeks on Wednesday. I want a weekend baby, or a baby when my DH is working locally and not 2+ hours away so I'm content to wait now. I was hoping over the weekend just because he was around and I overanalyzed every little cramp or uterus twitch I generally feel pretty good though, except for my hips and pelvis aching. I'm still thinking the weekend of the 20th or so. . . . we'll see!

Still here. 37 weeks 3 days and nothing happening. I'm convinced this is going to be a July 4 baby.

For me, she needs to wait minimum until Wednesday. THEN she can come out. I'm just 37w2days today though, so I believe I'll be around for several more of these weekly check in "Still Here" threads.

I'm still here... 39 weeks, 5 days.. and nothing really going on. Some random crampiness and I am definitely not comfortable but nothing that really seems like a sign of something happening. Hopefully I am just one of those people that just GOES into labor!! My mom flew here from Washington State to help out and take care of DS when baby makes an appearance and she can only stay so long so hopefully this baby isn't incredibly stubborn

Still here. I've stopped counting how far along I am though. Vampyro (new baby nickname) seems determined to suck me dry again after my hard one 2 point gain (hemocrit stuff). I need to get one point higher and then have this baby before I can fall again. I can't walk or be on my feet much though so it's hard to get him convinced it's eviction time. I've thought of some funny shirts I could make for the preggo set....maybe a t-shirt that says NO LOITERING over the belly.
post #30 of 88
I'm here too! 38 weeks and 4 days. I thought this kid would be early since my first two were 2 weeks early and my last one was 3 weeks early.
post #31 of 88
I'm here and waiting pretty patiently. I am 40 w 1-3 d (depending on due date). I got myself in a tizzy last pregnancy when I was late so I am determined to not do that again! This time I feel quite content to wait but I also wonder if that will delay the baby coming?

I am bored though!!! I haven't had things planned since I don't know when the baby will come, but I am going stir crazy sitting in the house. We usually are up and out of the house every morning for at least part of the day. I went ahead and made some plans for the next three days so I have something to do! I get my nails done tonight so I am looking forward to that.
post #32 of 88
still pregnant and it's still OK: 38w5d today. yesterday would have been PERFECT as my doc was on call and my bf/child care person didn't have her kids with her which made her SUPER flexible, but since you can't will a baby into being born, today i'm feeling content to just hang until SHE'S ready. tomorrow i might feel differently, who knows....

i'm SO with y'all on the contractions coming and going.....just either come or GO already! LOL

How's that going for you?? I'm battling some bad anemia myself and its getting so discouraging. After doing SlowFe (doubling the dose), Floradix and altering my diet majorly I still only went from 9.3 to 9.7 in 4 weeks. My crit went from 28 to 29.3 which isn't too bad. I'm supposed to be re-tested this week and I'm 38 weeks so I'm hoping its a bit better before I give birth.

Still here at 41 weeks. I cried when I got ready for work this morning. I honestly did not care or pay attention when I was "past due" with DD and DS, but I seem to be teetering on the edge of emotional imbalance here, and I need to get baby out and get my hormones back on track. It was seriously depressing when I was begging DH to ... ahem.. help me out with some prostoglandins, and he kind of gave me a sympathetic, "If you really need me to." (It really is not very fun when I am huge and unwieldy).

DH and I DTD last night and afterward I got "Well, there, I did my part." I didn't know whether to laugh or cry! BTW, it completely doesn't work.

Still here! Kind of sucks to have had "early" babies (one 17 days early, the other 5 days early) because when you get past the point you had the earliest, you think each one is late. KWIM?

38+, 3cm dilated (not getting checked anymore because it doesn't mean anything, I know), very soft cervix, BH at some point throughout each day that make me wonder - today?

Just trying to spend as much time and do as many activities with the kiddos as I can before life gets REALLY hectic!
post #37 of 88
Me too.. 37 weeks tomorrow (Tues).. I will welcome this baby this weekend or any other weekend after (DH works out of town, home on the weekends).

aww I am sorry. I told dh yesterday he had to "help out" and of course, he got a horrible sunburn at the pool so that wasn't even close to an option.

rivkah, I was soooo there with the last baby, esp. Going "late" is just such an emotional rollercoaster. w/ Clementine, I hit 41 weeks, had another prenatal that I was really hoping I wouldn't have to go to b/c I wouldn't be preg. anymore, I was so weepy all day but held it together and didn't cry until dh got home. We were talking over dinner, and I just started BAWLING!!!!! And seriously, it didn't stop for about 2.5-3 hrs. It was HORRIBLE!!!! I've never ever cried like that before. I was really stressed out b/c our movers were coming in a week to pack us out to move cross country. It was not fun. But after that total breakdown, I felt very emotionally stable, and I the baby was born that week. We moved a week after she was born. My mom said "God's timing is rarely early but never late" and it is so true. Anyway, just saying I totally relate. You can have some really bad days, and that's ok. But then it's usually followed by some good ones!

this is totally true! i'm really trying to stay relaxed with this one, as dc 1 and 2 were early (3 and 4 weeks!) and dc 3 was "late" so i was an emotional mess and begged for an induction at 40w3d. the bad part is that i had let myself FORGET that my due date was actually a week later -- they had moved it up at an u/s @ 15w and i totally bought into, even though i knew when i conceived. bad bad mommy! so, i was really only 39w+ and miserable. the emotional/mental side of the end of pregnancy is really so much worse than the physical (for me, anyway!)
