I am glad Christmas is over

I am also sick of being pregnant and want it to be over with
post #162 of 188
Sam.

When I was pregnant with ds2 a friend was pregnant with twins through IVF because not all her dh's sperm were good swimmers. I visited her one day when I felt massive but she couldn't get up off the beanbag she had sat down on and she was swearing like a sailor at her husband for getting her into this state. If I could have magicked those babies out of there for her that day I would!

You are absolutely entitled to be fed up and done with being pregnant. MOan at us here if no-one IRL will listen

Thanks

I have a massive bruise on my tummy where I bumped into a doorway after misjudging my girth - I feel like a massive, tired, emotional, achy whale.

Oh, Sam, I'm so sorry. Are you in "any day now" mode yet? And a big : to everything OF said.

Mum's going home today and I'm freaking out. I'm not bouncing back after birth this time the way I have before, and still feel woozy when I stand up for too long and absolutely exhausted. Bedtime last night sucked deeply, though. Sam is cluster feeding throughout the day and evening, Skye needs and expects a story before bed and then will snuggle down and go to sleep by herself. River's usual routine is story and then someone sitting with him while he goes to sleep, which is usually 10-20 minutes, can take longer. So why did last night take three people three hours?

ETA: Baby has a name. He is Samson Elessar- Sam for every day.

Samson...I like that name. Flapjack, so sorry you are not bouncing back like usual. That is how I felt last babay. I sure hope this one is not the same way. I really like my ability to bounce back.

I am hoping this WO will come out today! Ugh! He is just being stubborn. Actually, I was joking with my LO (who is now 17months) that it was his screeching that caused my labor to stop. He LOVES to screech. And I just know that it must have scared the WO so that he decided it was safer inside rather than out yesterday.

Maybe he will come tonight while the LO is sleeping and quiet!

Hey! A girl can only hope!

Samson is a wonderful name

Thanks for all your support I am nearly 36 weeks so I still got a few weeks to go if they don't come early.

I am loving and grateful for my kids helpfulness, Jack and Ruby folded and put away laundry for me, Lottie and Maddy are making dinner and James offered to do grocery shopping for me

I hope your birth is soon and goes smoothly Jenny

Thank you! So do I!

I know I am close, already had hours of good contractions as well as lost my plug and had a bloody show, but it all stopped (most probably because I was exhausted and I lay down to take a rest). I am truly hoping it all starts up again very, very soon.

It'll mess up your signature if he turns up today, though The nice run of 00-02-04-06 and so on...

Samson is a wonderful name! I hope you are feeling stronger soon.

baltic, I get how you feel and hpoeyour bruise isn't too sore. that everything happens at the right time (before you explode mentally or physically and when the babes are ready). I love your children's names that you listed. My own Charlotte is Charlotte when written by me or for introductions but has a list of nn: Lottchen, Lottie Lou, Lola, Chuck(ie)....

kidzaplenty!

My own house seems to be settling into a routine for the rest of break for which I am grateful.

It's a baby boom! What a terrific way to end a year and begin a new one!

So, I have a question for all you MOMs. I am being drowned by stuff! How do you organize all the stuff it takes to run a large family? We have 4 littles so we are a family of 6. That means 6 jackets, at least 6 pairs of shoes, a million toys for 4 different age groups, 6 different sizes of clothing, 4 bikes, a thousand other little odds and ends. So how do you keep stuff for each family member organized? Do you limit the number of each item a person has? Please help!!!!!!!!!!

By the way flapjack, I love the name Sam! Kidzaplenty, wishing you a peaceful delivery.

Totally.
Anyway, Jenny, hope you have a good birthing experience when he does decide to come.

Helen, what a great name!

And Sam, I hope they stay in 'til week 37 anyway, so they're not preemies, but not a day longer. Hope you have a good birthing experience too when the times comes.
But yeah, I get the sick and tired of it part. s

I know! But these hours long contractions just do not feel good!

For the last two nights I have had painful contractions that last hours, only to fizzle out as I get exhausted. I don't want to do this for another week.

Besides, I have one daughter born in an odd year, and I thought maybe she would like company!

Thanks mommajb I've just realized we both have children named Ian (my eldest) and Charlotte my Charlotte gets the nicknames Charlie and Lottie (which is often shortened to Lots).

Any more progress on your labor Jenny?

Nope. No more progress. My contractions have stopped again (though I still have massive pressure as well as all the aches and twinges of labor are still there) and my b/p is on the rise (150/85 as of an hour ago, even with my meds, and had 144/90 this morning). I suspect my b/p is about to go out of control. My head is beginning to ache as well as all the other signs.

This thing NEEDS to come out! I just wonder how much longer I can hold out before giving in to a medical induction. I feel so exhausted and sore right now that I don't feel like having a baby. But it must happen eventually.

I am hoping that if I can just get some rest tonight, perhaps things will kick in for the final wave tomorrow! I think I will see how it goes until Thursday night before I do something more drastic (like take a couple of large doses of CO). If my b/p remains high or goes up, and I can not get this thing to come out, I will have to likely go to the hospital this weekend to evict him. NOT something I want to do.

Here is hoping he chooses to make an appearance before then!

Sounds like you're so close, Jenny.

Thanks for asking, she's doing mostly fine now, her lungs and respiratory issues are back to what's normal for her. And her feeding situation is getting better, it'll be fine very soon. So, very soon totally recovered. And that's excellent!
We ended up in the hospital on the 25th though, after the presents she had a major seizure that turned into a string we couldn't brake with the meds we have, so we had to call an ambulance (she was headed towards status epilepticus, and that's dangerous, life-threatening and can be very harmful). So they knocked her out with strong meds at the hospital, stopped the seizures, and she needed to stay for a few hours to sleep it off, we couldn't go until it was mostly out of her system. But she was breathing on her own the whole time, she hardly ever does that when she gets these meds, with lots and lots of o2, but still, that was good.
She slept most of the afternoon and night on the couch at home, but the day after she was back to herself again.
And, we kicked the nurses out the 20th! That was so good. They were wonderful and good to have too, but I was so sick and tired of no privacy 24/7. It's a lot less fuss now, less medication, less feeding mess in the nights. So we just take turns at nights, it's fine.

We're on vacation now, we left on the 20th and are staying until sunday I think. It's so great to have all this time together, our oldest girl is with us too, and I just love it. We all do. We're having so much fun and enjoying this so much.
And Tiny has finally reached 11 lbs (5 kg.), 19 weeks old. And, we might have found an adoptive family for her, I got an email just an hour ago. From the family who our last emergency care baby went too as well, they are interested (even though she is delayed and might have some neuro issues) and have contacted our CW. They are a wonderful (AP) family, and is letting us stay in touch with our last guy, so that would be so great.

Allrighty, that was like a novel.
Jenny, sounds like you are close, I'm keeping my fingers crossed that he chooses to come out without intervention.
