OK- who's left? (still waiting) - Page 6

post #101 of 161
Anyone more overdue than me? I went to the hospital today for a fetal assessment, thankfully everything looks great so no pressure to induce yet. I'm 41 weeks today by my dates, 41+2 by my first ultrasound. The baby is measuring small (just over 38 weeks), which I've been saying all along but I am sure of my dates because I was charting to conceive.
The good news is that last night I started losing my plug and have been losing it all day today. Last pregnancy I had my daughter within about 24 hours of that happening.
If I haven't had the baby by Monday I'll go back in for another assessment. I really have no idea when it will come, but I'm in an ok place now to keep waiting.

ah, thanks for the laughs. yeah, i just sort of keep sitting there after i'm done for a while, usually there's more in about 15 seconds.

I pee so much esp at night that I've been half wishing I had a catheter so I wouldn't have to leave my bed every hour at night!

I took my ds swimming today (which was amusing since I can barely stretch into my bathing suit, the molded bra wasn't even really over my boobs. lol) and when the woman at the counter asked when I was due I lied and said in two weeks because I've heard that they have kicked out full term mommas before.

I lost my plug 2 days before giving birth to my daughter... I lost some last night and again at 3 this morning during my routine 2 hour bout of false labor in the middle of the night. I'm 40+1 so nowhere near as far as you... but I hope we both go quickly! My uterus actually ACHES from all this false labor. It feels like terrible menstrual cramps. I want to think that's a good thing but at this point I'm pretty convinced that nothing my uterus does means anything. I'm really demoralized this morning, I really thought last night was it. I think that EVERY DAY . And DH is being kind of a jerk about it because he's mad that he has to go to work. I told him this morning that I didn't feel like chatting about how hard this is for OTHER PEOPLE right now especially since he woke me up with "do I have to go to work today?" and not "how was your night/how are you feeling/good morning."

/rant

How is everyone today?

so, help fill it in for me, a first time mommy. how do you lose some of our plug? i have seen an increase in CM, but i was thinking it was just discharge, not losing my plug.

i guess i was thinking that you lose your plug in one big plop and it would be easily noticable.

^^^ My daughter's plug was completely whole. I haven't lost this one's yet. God, I want to see that damn plug already!!

I keep asking this kid to come out and the little jerk won't even drop. Blah, I'm tired.
post #109 of 161
Still here too, and 9 days from the EDD. DH is starting to drive me nuts too asking every day and calling in the middle of the day if this is it. No, when I feel some contractions that are regular at all I will tell you!!!! It HAS to happen soon for all of us!
post #110 of 161
Lauren, I could have written your post word for word! I have about an hours worth of contractions every evening. Every morning my husband asks if today is the day and if I'm in labour yet, and says he can't focus on work until I have the baby. Pressure much!!! Every night when I get the contractions he asks if this is it... if I knew I'd tell him! It's hard not to get your hopes up. At this point I'm just trying to breath through it and accept the contractions whether or not they are the having the baby soon ones or not.

My plug has been coming out in pieces, but some fairly significant. It's like really really thick discharge that's a yellow type color and thick and stringy... like when you blow your nose and you have a bad cold. I know, sounds gross. Some people have blood with it as well but that's not been my experience.

This is exactly how it's been for me for all three pregnancies.

Yesterday was my birthday. Obviously, baby wants his own birthday because I am still pregnant.

We went out for dinner, had to park 2 blocks away from the restaurant so I walked a good amount right there. Then after dinner, we needed to go to Costco and so I was walking around Costco for 20 minutes. Then, later we DTD for the first time in a couple weeks. I was hoping all of that would've gotten something going but alas, I woke up today feeling like I normally do every other day. I have been feeling totally zen about waiting and waiting and waiting but I am starting to get to that point now, I'm done. Tomorrow will be 41w.

We've been thinking about taking DD somewhere "special" to have a fun day with her before she has a little sibling cramping her style. LOL So, maybe I can get some more walking in with whatever we decide to do.

OP here with an update about me.

My due date is tomorrow, and I am in really annoying slow early labor and have been for almost two days. The contractions have finally gotten more intense, but are only 7-10 minutes apart. We were really hoping that today would be the day, but so far...nope.

Still here. Getting paranoid (very unlike myself) and very impatient (much like myself, hehe).

It looks exactly like boogers. I know for some women it's very noticeably a plug, but for me it's like chunky yellow boogers I know. The plug can regenerate, too, so you might lose it and then lose it again later on. Wish the stupid thing was attached to a timer so we could all guarantee labor once it popped out! I lost some more this morning, 2 days after losing a bunch.

So, my uterus took last night off and I got some really good rest. I'm hoping that between that and losing more plug, that the next time contractions start up it will be the Real Thing. I'm definitely optimistic if not about today, than about this weekend. I'm definitely feeling nesty and a bit manic this morning, but how many times has that happened ? Anyway, it's about time for another huge rush of births for us, don't you think?? So many of us are at 40w or over that it seems like we are "due" for a bunch of birth announcements.

Jepardy music continues--I can't spell Jepardy

Went to appt and I was not leaking. I'm due on Sunday and I vow today I will not be crabby.

I am having stronger BH every few minutes this morning. I really hope they turn into something. I am not getting my hopes up until they become painful.

40 + 6 today. Lost mucus plug last night around 3:30am, after being woken up by really strong contractions - I thought I was on my way!! Oh, no, of course not. That was just a tease. After finally managing to get back to sleep, no contractions to speak of yet today. Ugh, this is frustrating! Dh kept asking me if he should cancel his clients and stay home today - I'm like, how the hell should I know??

Still here...

My daughter (who uses "the other day" for any day yesterday or before and "the next day" for any day tomorrow and beyond) told me, without prompting, "the baby is coming tomorrow night." That will put me at 41 even...
