OK- who's left? (still waiting)

post #1 of 161
Thread Starter 
let's do final countdown together!

me: i am finally cleared to do a VBAC at the birth center (after scares with placenta previa, low amniotic fluid, etc), healthy, and my birth team is rarin' to go. the last week i have had two bouts of prodromal labor- one for 5 hours, another for two. our ultrasounds indicate we are having a boy, and my official due date is jan 22.

what about all y'all?

i'll be 40 weeks on monday...trying my hardest to be patient, but it's getting difficult...had prodromal all morning and afternoon yesterday, piddled out around 4 pm...nothing else since then. bleh.

I'm still here, but have already scheduled surgery for a week from today (!!!) due to a pesky fibroid. But still here...

I'm not due until the 27th, so I've still got plenty of time to hurry up and wait. I've been increasingly uncomfortable these days, but nothing that makes me think this baby is going to come early. Lots of BH contractions but nothing else. My parents don't arrive until the 24th and my mother is part of my birthing team, so I hope the baby stays put until then.

I am still waiting. My due date is Jan. 21. I have settled into the idea that it may be awhile yet because there is nothing going on. I was having some bh's a couple weeks ago, but now even those have stopped for the most part. My daughter was early, so this waiting thing is new to me. I purchased some yummy treats to have after he is born, since I have gd. I can't wait!

I'm four days overdue by ultrasound, two by charting. I've been pretty sick with a cold so I think the baby is waiting. Planning a second home waterbirth with midwifes and doula.

I was due on Tuesday, but no baby yet. My midwife swept my membranes at Tuesday's appt. I've had a little lightly blood-tinged mucous discharge since then. No more BH than I has before. I was at 3 cm and 80% effacement at the appt. I am just really hoping that My birth doesn't coincide with another of my midwife's patients. We thought I would have birthed by now!

It's my due date and I'll cry if I want to....

Today's my "official" guess date and I'm still here!! No real signs of labor, but I didn't have any last time, either. I'm crampy, having some light BH, and the baby's head is pretty well stuffed into my pelvis, but other than that....all quiet. Oh, and I'm fighting a cold, which sucks. Lots of chicken soup and lemon water for me today.

I'm here.... not due till the 26th tho. I'm totally okay with still being pregnant. Last week was very emotional as somehow I convinced myself I will have the baby at 37w. But now I feel like there is still a lot to get done, and so I'm just going to ride it out and let the baby come when its ready.
Though I am very uncomfortable and sleep is tough.

I am due Jan 24th but thinking it might be longer than that. I have been having Braxton Hicks and start with achings and discomforts - so far the pregnancy had been very easy on me. Now my left hip is bothering me and my mind is a bit crazy, feeling moody and nervous.

I'm here. EDD is the 20th. No signs of anything yet. Lots of BH but not much else. My mom is coming on the 20th to stay for 3 weeks and I really want to have the baby within a few days or before she gets here so I have as much help as possible. Contemplating trying castor oil on Sunday but DS was a week late so........

DH and DS have had some horrible cold this week and I'm ready to pull my hair out if they don't stop coughing in the next 24 hours. It's really bad so I'm keeping my distance.

we are still here. due date is sunday (by our calculations) and tuesday by the ob's "wheel of fortune".

we are just back from the ob. our little guy wasn't moving as much as usual, so dp called and they asked us to come in. the nst went great - he eventually did start bopping around and his heartrate was fine. dp is having minor contractions, some of which she can feel and some not.

the ob did a quick u/s to check on fluid level and that is also fine. he is head down and engaged. we are just waiting for labour to start at this point.

we really don't think he is coming any time soon.

Not due until the 26th, but I am guessing I will go VERY close to my EDD.
I'm good with that though.
I does kinda freak me out that I am due in, umm, 11 days though!
post #14 of 161
My official due date is also the 22nd. I had my membranes swept on Tuesday and that gave me a couple of days of crampy, labory, pressure-y feelings, and I lost my mucous plug completely yesterday....and then nothing. My prediction has been this weekend, during the new moon, since all my last three girls were born during the new moon, so I am still holding out for that!

We are planning our first UC water birth, and the hospital is right down the road if we feel the need to transfer.

I'm here

Due the 24th
Lots of prodromal stuff but all of the sudden I feel great.
Two coworkers had their babies in two days, but I'm happy for them, I really am.
DS1 came at 42+3 and was so healthy for it.
I want big, chubby, healthy, yadayada but I hope it's not quite that long this time.
post #16 of 161
Due in 7 days. Feel like crap and resting now. I'm really mad at my MW who was convinced I'd go by now. I wish she'd have kept her trap shut and just waited to see what would happen. Otherwise, I have no expectation of going before 40 weeks as I'm generally a 41 weeker.

My MIL always recommends lemon, olive oil and sugar if you like. I take this every time I have a cold and it always helps a bunch.


ETA: I am due today too!!!! Oh Well~ I knew this day would be uneventful. Still here and chugging along.

I'm here. Due date is this weekend or mid-next week, depending on who you ask.

I'm a little nervous because I went to 41 weeks with #1. Unfortunately, my doc is going to do a Doctors without Borders type program in early Feb, so I really want to have this baby before she leaves!
post #19 of 161
I'm due Jan. 27, so I'm 38 weeks +2, won't be surprised if I go over. Absolutely nothing going on whatsoever but a couple of mild Braxton Hicks per day, feel great, busy getting the to-do list done.

Must admit I visit the Feb club, too.

Well, I'm due on the 28th. I have had some BH, but nothing *really* strong. I went 41 weeks 1 day with my last child (my 1st) and I'm hoping I dont go that far this time. I know that my due date is only almost 2 weeks away, but I am really REALLY ready to have this baby now. I dont think I have ever been so sore in my whole life. All these weird aches and pains are showing up ALL over my body....it really sucks!! Well, its good to know that the pain will be over with (hopefully) before I know it.
