Gravity is MEAN! When I went swimming last week and I had to get out of the pool I was like 'WOAH! Gravity is a mean mean thing' LOL! Also due the 28th here.

Birth tub is set up in my living room so PLEASE little one come soon. I'm 39 weeks today though... so I guess he still technically has a week (or two or three.... yikes at that thought). But I am READY!!
post #45 of 70
Add me to the list! I am at 40 weeks + 4 days right now. Ugh. First one was a week early so I wasn't prepared for the frustration of: why hasn't baby come yet, grr. Plus I have had tons of regular BH for weeks that just don't turn into anything.

I'm at 39wk +3days...not expecting to go early, but just like everyone else, at this point I wouldn't mind if I did! I seem to be leaking fluid and have been all week, last night was the worst and I had non-stop BH...but nothing else. Cleaned the parts of the house that needed it today and finished aaaaalllll the baby laundry. We also installed the car seat today, so I guess we're as ready as we're ever gonna be and I am REALLY excited! Hugs to all you other mommas!!

so far I've tried rrl, sex, pineapple, castor oil, nursing and blue cohosh. I guess baby wants to live in their forever. Forgot to add walking, swimming, lunges and squats.

I'm thinking of taking castor oil tonight I'm sooooo miserable DD2 was 10 days past her EDD and I was totally fine with it, but this baby feels much bigger (his head is way low and he still has his butt in my ribs! what gives?!) and I'm just so tired of my back and hips aching. Plus my mom is here and has been for a week, and leaves a week from tomorrow. I really want her to be here for the birth and afterwards, so I have help! I feel like the time is a-wastin'!

I am still here!!! My due date is August 3rd yet I had thought I would go earlier because of past issues with preeclampsia. Luckily, it has stayed AWAY so far!

I can't believe we will be meeting our sweet babes so soon! I found out I was pregnant at 2 weeks so this pregnancy has been a LONG one!

That is the worst--doing the castor oil and having it not help. I did that with my first and it was another week.
Now on my 4th I'm thinking of castor oil again (as I'm doing everything else, and these cx still won't build), and I just don't know if feel like dealing with the yucckyness and then still not going into real labor.

add me to the still pg list! I keep having mixed emotions about it-- I am trying to love every second with dd as the "only" - but I am so dang hormonal and emotional - and I think she is getting so excited about baby brother coming that she has been acting a little nutso, so there has been alot of frustrated, growly mama around here. Part of me is unsure as to if this well be our last, so trying to take in all the emotions and even the physical aspects of it all and "Savor?" it for what it is...
Another part of me is so totally DONE that done doesnt even explain it.

Due the 20th here.

I'm still here. Due July 28. I don't feel like anything is getting close, but I do still have another 2 weeks (atleast). Hopefully I won't go over! My first was born on her due date. I have good days and bad days. Sometimes I am feeling pretty impatient.

Still pregnant and ok with that. I'm due in a few weeks and somehow I "feel" like I'll give birth that week.
post #54 of 70
I am now 40w (dd 7/12) and trying to think about what else to do to encourage this baby to come before 42w. It just seems like none of my kids wants to be born. I have never gone into labor on my own b/c of circumstances and I am really wondering how long it really is going to be this time if the baby gets to choose his/her b-day. 43w? 44w? Or longer?!?

We have tried my MW's 3H's (hot food, hot bath/shower, & hot bd) everyday for the last week. I really though that since I am almost completely effaced this time at 38w (I never really dilated or effaced any even by 42w previous 2 babies) that I actually had a chance of going into labor on my own before 40-42w. But now, I am not so sure.

So, can you find good red raspberry leaf tea locally or do you have to order it over the internet?

Sending all of you labor vibes!!! :
Even having to deal with postpartum aches, I feel sooooo much better with all the baby and placenta weight gone!
It is not fun at all these last few weeks -- hoping it will be over for you ladies soon, and that your little babies decide to come out to meet you not long from now!

Come on babies!!

I get mine at my co-op. I think it's probably cheaper to buy online in bulk, but I always forget until mine is GONE. i've been drinking it since I found out I was pregnant, but now I am making it a lot more strong.

I'm due on Sunday. My birth tub is set up and taking up my ENTIRE living room... we even had to scoot the couch back so it's blocking the door to our porch (which we luckily don't use that much, but it is also the door to get to our mailbox HAHA)... so I'd prefer to go into labor relatively soon!

Still pregnant- my due date was July 6th- im 41 weeks. Ive had pre-labor since last Monday- lost part of the plug, no bloody show, tons of the 'just kidding!" contractions and 1000000000's of phone calls. No one will leave me alone even if I ask. I'm worried about the doc trying to get me to come in for induction- so far they have been fantastic, but I'm getting anxious, antsy and want to meet my son!
Its hard to not think about it and I am trying to keep busy day to day, but going into labor is always in the back of my mind. I know tons of moms and NONE of them went into labor on their own, and none of them did it naturally so I have no one to really talk to about this! yikes!

Still here too! Due on 7/19. I had contractions all night long last night and am still having them this morning but not as strong. I did a little researching this morning about prodromal labor and it seems like some of my symptoms fall under prodromal labor and others fall under active labor. No bloody show or mucus plug yet but contractions are radiating back to front and are pretty regular regardless of activity. Certainly didn't get much sleep last night!

Logistically, we really are not ready for the baby yet. Clothes aren't all put away. Sam is still in Anika's room instead of his own which is where he is going once we are done painting and buying a bed and all that. No bag packed for the hospital. House is a mess.

Physically and emotionally though - I am SO ready!!!! I want to meet and cuddle my little girl!!! I figure as long as I've got boobs and dipes - I'm fine with the other stuff getting completed after she arrives. I just can't wait to begin my baby moon .

This is so me! I can't put all of the girly stuff in the nursery until DS is moved out, and we can't move him out until we finish painting and whatnot in his new room. Also, I just ordered some more XS diapers and covers, so I'm hoping they get here before she does.

ETA: The baby's mostly going to be in our room for a while, but I still need a place for all her stuff, and I wanted to move DS before she came so hopefully he won't feel like she's kicking him out.

40w 2d and counting here. I prefer to say we are "above average".

My biggest gripe is acquaintances asking if I am dilated or effaced. When did my cervix become a topic of casual conversation? They seem all confused when I tell them I don't know and I don't want to know. It's not like it makes a difference, you worry either way. I just expect this little one will come sometime this month (EDD July 12)

It could be a while, DD was 41w 5d.
