I would get excited about that!

I know what you mean though. I've been cramping all evening and baby is lower in my pelvis, but I'm still hesitant to get excited even though I'm 40+2. I did call the sitter to put her on alert just in case, but I also said it's probably nothing and I won't meet my babe until the 4th of July

BUT, I hope we are both holding our little ones soon!

yeah, I'm annoyed by my body signs too! I would think this being my 4th, I would have some type of pattern or normal signs or whatever. But instead, I'm having all these contractions and pressure, etc but then it goes away. Comes and goes all the time. Ugh............ "each preg. is different!" is what I keep getting told. "don't compare!" So we'll see what happens. All of them have been born on the weekend though......... whatever. I just want to quit having this in my brain!!!

Ugh. I'm still here, and now NOT wanting to go into labor until after tomorrow, because it's our youngest daughter's bday and I just want to relax with her and our family.

Raise your hand if you think I'll have this baby tomorrow.....lol!!!

That's exactly how I feel!! I'm anxious about getting someone here in time to take care of DD, getting to the hospital in time, and dealing with labor pain. I'm even a little nervous about nursing (last time HURT in the beginning). I've had too much time to think it all over, and I'm just over it now! Let's get this show on the road!

I'm also nervous about getting to the BC in time... and I really need this baby to come on a weekend, because DH works out of town I don't want him to miss it!

I had contrax all night again, I couldn't sleep from about 2-6am, then finally fell asleep and now they are gone

Yea, my DH works 2+ hours away most days. A weekend would be very convenient.

I've been having gobs of mucous again and some diarrhea. My hips, pelvis, and upper thighs are even more achy than usual. I really hope this means that the baby is settling in lower and will come soon. I am grumpy and my son is driving me up a wall. I can't stand to be around him right now and I feel awful for saying that. I hope this is all normal and just hormonal. I am feeling so ready to be done already.

Still here. Kind of wanting baby to wait until Sunday night or Monday b/c my dr. is out of town for the weekend. I'm sure the on-call dr. is fine, but I've never met him so would be a little more uncomfortable, and not as sure of how to ask questions, etc.

As far as signs of labor, I was at 4 cm earlier this week, plenty of painless contractions that come and go, and my digestive system seems to be...clearing itself out. Also have lost a few pounds which is kind of a bummer- it sounds really silly, but I worked really really hard to gain them .

Next appt. is Monday and I plan to ask more questions about the results of my biophysical profile. Did everything look great, or just so-so? Baby was not very active during it and it made it hard to get the results they wanted I think. I am afraid induction will come up again- dr. did not push it last week (he's concerned about baby's growth possibly being restricted...hence the biophysical profile, hopefully it's nothing) so I'm hoping he'll continue to be OK with the "well, let's just be patient" route.

Sounds promising!!! I hope this weekend is it for you so your DH won't miss it!

Same here, I was so ready too <sigh>.

Anyone else finding it hard to cope with the pain and discomfort? I just cried and cried yesterday, because I'm tired of it. I feel like a big baby because this pg is much less painful than my pg with ds1 (with ds1 it was constant pain, with this one it comes and goes), but it still hurts, and I'm just so so so done.

I'm tired of being in pain almost every time I get up to walk somewhere, I'm tired of having to wake up at 4am because my knees hurt and the only way to make them feel better is to walk around my house for 10 minutes, I'm tired of the ITCHING freakin' everywhere- my whole vulva itches, my belly itches, I have an itchy hemorrhoid. Even my ear piercings itch- I've had them for well over 10 years, and haven't had a problem with them for years and years.

When I stand up, it feels like the baby is stabbing me over and over in my cervix. It hurts- I can barely get from my couch to my kitchen without leaning over in pain. I really hope this sensation doesn't continue or get worse in labor

The one and only benefit I can think of is that I am soooooo not afraid of labor pain anymore. I don't care how bad it hurts, at least I'll know the whole thing will be done and over with soon!

There will be NO MORE babies coming from this body! (of course, that's what I said after ds1, and this baby had his own ideas, so...)

Becky- I'm right there with you.. I am sooooooo uncomfortable today, I do want to cry. I feel nauseous too, but am forcing myself outside to run errands... hopefully getting out will help.

I agree, I really don't remember my other pgs being THIS miserable..maybe they were & 13 years in between just dimmed the memory. I had contractions last night & was so excited I didn't even care if it hurt, then they stopped

Sorry to flood the thread... but I am soooooo uncomfortable, I feel like dying and crying! The baby is moving around so much he is making me sick.. he is kicking me so hard I should have bruises by now.. it hurts I feel like crap... nothing will make me feel better than getting this baby OUT!

(((hugs))) becky. That sounds aweful. This was me last week, up until Tues. Then my butt started feeling much better and life has become more pleasant. My hip area hurts a lot to walk--I barely can w/o a limp--so that's annoying. The chiro is a help, but the adjustments just barely "hold" for a couple days and then we're back to square one again. I'm going to get a massage next week so that is something to look forward to.

I am due tomorrow, and last night I did the math, and July 12th I'll be 42 wks. So I've mentally adjusted my due date to that and somehow that gives me great comfort!! lol I can totally imagine having a baby on the 10th or something. My parents are visiting for a few days next week and I would LOVE for them to have a grandbaby to see, but I'm not going to pressure myself. I like the new "due date" in my head and feel positive about the next two weeks.

So that's how I feel today, I'll probably be an emotional basketcase again in a few days, I'll let you know!!

Thanks for all the hugs

to you LizzyQ. I'm feelin ya. I just want him OUT so I can start to remember what it's like to not be in pain and discomfort all the time.
If there were a chance he would be too early, I'd feel bad for feeling like this. But I'm at 40w- he'll be JUST fine coming out now! (Plus, I'm pretty sure that wanting him out isn't going to make him come any sooner. lol)

I hope this thread is quiet today because you're all busy having your babies Or enjoying the beautiful weekend.... It was such a perfect day here, would have been a great birth day. We took a hike in the woods and had contractions the whole time I was walking, but when I sat down they stopped. Oh well.

Tomorrow is my due date. I'm trying to find things to do this week to keep myself busy so I don't go crazy.......

Hope everyone is feeling good today

Not having a baby here...

spent the afternoon at a gem/rock fair with my friend/doula, and nothing (except a couple pretty opals for cheap)...

I'm discouraged - DH goes back to work out of town tomorrow morning, so I'm going to be telling the baby to stay in instead of come out for the next 4 days
