Pregnant mamas - check in!!!

post #1 of 189
Thread Starter 
With all these announcements, it must seem overwhelming for you moms who are pregnant! My 1st baby was due Aug 26th 2003, and came Aug 30th (I was glad he at least made it into the Aug DDC), so I understand some of your envy, if you have any.

So who is still with baby within???

Still pregnant and not due until the 24th. hopefully, I will stay in the August group, too

Still pregnant, and I'm on modified bedrest and preeclampsia watch. On the other hand, the baby's size estimate is only 7 pounds, 14 ounces at 38 weeks, so I think I did pretty well with the gestational diabetes management.

Me too....my due dates have ranged from Aug 11th to Aug 19th depending on when/who/how it was calculated. But...this is my second baby and I went early with my first so I wasn't exactly expecting to still be pregnant right now! lol Just making sure to enjoy the time with my 4yo DS and finish up last minute projects while trying to take it easy.

yep, still pregnant - was due the 8th, but tend to cook my babies for a while and didn't have any u/s for dating, so who knows!
It would have been nice to have the baby earlier, maybe for the novelty factor of a baby that is under 9lbs and actually looks like a newborn. I'm pretty sure she will still be born in august - hoping before the 23rd as i'd like another leo not a virgo.

*wave* Still hanging in there :-) Due 8/30, I usually go early, and we have a few reasons to think it'll be sometime this weekend, but we'll see. Whenever it happens I think it's going to go fast...

Pregnant and due Aug 24th, too. Been having contrax off and on that are timeable and moving closer together in the evenings that peter out after a couple of hours, with other sharp pelvic and cervix pains, and mucous off and on for TWO weeks. Desperately trying to have a good attitude and patience. Some days are better than others. Hopefully today will be a good day. Dh and kids and I are going downtown to walk and that will be fun....

I'm here! I'm basically 41 weeks now. I'm having frequent contractions that I can feel and lots of bloody show so hopefully those are signs that I'm nearing the end. I refuse to get discouraged! I'm trying to stay as active as I can and go on with life.

3 days shy of my due date, and still *very much* pregnant!!

Lisa, that sounds very promising--I'm looking for your big announcement soon.
post #10 of 189
I was due the 7th/8th... with a personal guess date of around the 13th (so either 40+ or 41 weeks right now). Still pregnant. Really ready for this babe. They're going to push rc/s hard on Monday.

I am 38w1d today and due on the 27th. I did not sleep at all last night, so Have been crying and such. Dh had not really been helping out this week or last and I am just finally breaking down. I can't figure out if I am overreacting or if he really is letting me down. Sigh.

I just want to rest today, but I can't.

Still pregnant...

My due date from LMP is Aug 17th, but I know the conception date - so I'm looking at Aug 21stish...been dialated to 2 and 70% effaced for almost a month...my daughter came 18 months ago at 38 weeks...this little girl is stubborn...having on & off contractions & cramping for over a week - started primrose oil 2 days ago & had bloody show since then???
post #13 of 189
I am here - due 8/25.

I don't think I am close but maybe that is wishful thinking. I know most of you seem to want to have their babies sooner, I would be totally happy with going until my due date or later!

I am uncomfortable, but I still have things to do and I am also hoping this baby will be a Virgo - my son is a Leo who loves being the center of attention and I think two like him would be difficult.

I am still here, was due the 11th, though m/w's had me today at the 14th. Either way I am ready to be done! Right now I am eating pineapple and getting ready to go get a massage. I am ready to be done!
post #15 of 189
Yup, still here. Due date of the 8th and a personal estimate date of the 12th. As you can see neither panned out. Getting a little edgy as I had to start my maternity leave and everyday without baby now means one day less with him before going back to work.

My midwife is going on vacation on the 21st and my mom is leaving the same day. So it pretty much means I have a week to convince this little guy to come join us.

I was 8 days past EDD with my first so if the pattern continues I still have at least a few more days.

Still here. 39 weeks pregnant minus 2 days. Never thought I'd make it this long since I have/had a subchorionic hematoma which often causes preterm labor. But yet...here I am.

The miserable part comes and goes and I cannot wait to be done being pregnant. Hats off to those who enjoy this time, but I do not like it at all. Can't wait to just be holding my baby.

Hugs Pernillep... sounds like we're DDC-twins! Let's see if we can both get these munchkins on the outside this weekend!

(wanna race? )

I'm 38w and still here. I have a cousins reception tonight I want to go to, so baby can't come until at least tomorrow WHo knows though. I'm still just having as many BH as before. My feet have started to really swell. I tried to put one of my toe rings on and it wouldn't fit. I've been having really bad heartburn too but that might be because I have been eating really late lately. I am hoping to stay in the August DDC but I finally counted when 42 would be and that's Sept 11th. It helps to tell myself that date now to make things seem a little better even though I'm miserable.

39 weeks today!

DS was a 43 weeker but I am not going for that this time around, lol. I am hoping to hold out 'til Mon since one of my MW's is out of town. I'm selfish and I want them both here for the birth Nah, I would be happy with either MW, but I really want to share this experience with both of them. Pretty sure baby will stay in a bit longer anyway

Good luck Mamas!

Thank you, GenomicsGirl! All these birth announcements do make pregnancy seem a little passe...

Still-pregnant sisters, solidarity!

I'm really hoping for a nice weekend birth for you!

I'm sorry! I have had pretty severe sleep deprivation intermittently during this third trimester, and I feel for you! How rough that he is not helping out. If he's not helping out, there's no doubt he should be helping out, so maybe a gentle mention of that is in order? It seems like you've been really gung-ho and active--maybe he doesn't realize that you need more help?

My official date is August 26, but I'm in no big hurry. I'm sleep deprived, struggling with RLS and not totally blissful or anything. But I'm used to being pregnant, and I get teary when I think that this big momentous experience is almost over. I like feeling my baby so close inside me and it seems kind of shocking that he or she will be newly separate from me not so long from now!
