40 weeks today...and not hardly a twinge. i get little cramps every now and then, but they never progress into anything, haven't lost any more plug, no bloody show....gah!

time to start turning inward and seeing if there's some kind of mental block going on...

Still here and still enjoying being pregnant, but soooo excited to meet my little man!

Hanging out feeling sorry for myself... I guess I should make plans to go ahead and teach this week I had my sub lined up and everything.

I feel like we need a thread titled

"Who's still here and has absolutely nothing happening"

I feel great. Nothing coming out, no contractions, etc.

I don't want to go late and have to fight the VBAC-skittish caregivers.

I'm about to leave to go see my back-up midwife for a stretch and sweep. I'm 1 week overdue today by my ultrasound date. Both DH and I are well and truly ready to have this baby out! I hope it gets something going, but I guess we'll see. All the phone calls have started, and add to that my Mum just had to go back to hospital (and she's in Australia, I'm in Canada). I'm just stressed.

Just checking in. Still pregnant, still nothing. Hardly even a BH. Whatever.

39 weeks today. Nothing happening. Not getting too antsy yet, but I really hope I don't go past my due date (January 25).

Went in today for a weekly appt. No change since I was there last time. I did have some more mucousy type discharge this morning. I'm 40w3d today. My very supportive OB is going out of town tomorrow thru Sunday. Neither of his partners are VBAC friendly. He told me one will not do a VBAC and the other one may possibly do it. So, as much as it pains me to think about being pregnant for another whole week, I'm kind of hoping he doesn't come until next Monday when my OB is back.

As far as the questions and calls, I'm going to go biserk. My husband is also really starting to grate my nerves - asking every single day how I feel and if I think today is the day. I do not want to take my dd to preschool tomorrow because I know her teacher & all the other moms are going to ask me when the baby is going to come out. Ughhhh. If I could just avoid people in general, this whole going "overdue" would be alot easier.

YES!!

Originally I just told everybody "end of January" when they asked and for months they were fine with it. Then I switched it to "middle of January" (no idea why) and since it's 1/18 and that's the middle I get asked allll the time when he's coming. Hell if I know! Then I was bitching to my old man about "I'm tired of people asking when he's coming and calling and emailing and blah blah blah all the time"...he told me that they're excited to meet our son and I'm being selfish. SELFISH?! Dude, that did NOT help!

We won't forget to call them and accidentally take the kids with us to the hospital. It's just not going to happen.

When anyone from the "inner circle" (so to speak) just can't control themselves anymore and has to call for an update, I'm just DYING to say, "OHMYGOD!! We had the baby last week!! Did we forget to call you?! I am SO SORRY!!!!" I mean seriously, mom, MIL, FIL, sisters, brothers, best friends... you are going to know! I promise!
This is what I've been saying all along!! I mean, we left the IL's house last night and MIL says "the phone is by my bed, don't forget to call me!" Hell-OO, you are watching the kids so, duh, I'm gonna call you! I told DH we should call her in the middle of the night just for the heckofit, and when she answers all excited be like, so, whatcha doin?

meh I'm still here! I'll be 39w tomorrow. My son was born at 39w. But I think chances are very slim that the baby will be born tonight. DH thinks I'm going to go overdue, I just hope I don't go all the way into February, I just might have to kill someone.

Jumping into this due date club late..basically to complain along with y'all.

Pregnancy is super easy for me until the last few weeks - 37 is when I started wonder why I decided to do this again-this time. Kidding, sorta. I'm 40 weeks plus 1 day and wishing, willing, begging this little baby to come join the party.
I can't sleep, I can't sit, I can't walk, I can't lay down, I can't shave, I forcing myself to fake it around my two year old and engage him when I want to curl up in bed till I go into labor..I hate my Hypnobabies. Hate it. It's really starting to grate on my nerves. If Dh is still married to me after this pregnancy - bless him. I'm SO sick of just doing anything, I dont' want to leave the house, I'm totally out of clothes to wear. So Zen? yeah, no. Not at all.

My midwife's other client's water broke

That means good news for me...as long as I don't go into labor tonight

We got half of my huge list of to do's done & will attempt the other half tomorrow...as I turn 39 weeks!! I'm so happy!!! My goal is to get as close to my due date as possible.

Is that the Jepardy music that I hear...

40+2 today. yesterday dp felt crappy, had lower back pain, pelvic pressure (lots of it) and small contractions that were somewhat regular. today she still feels crappy and has some pressure and some random contractions. it looks like babe dropped a little more. she is working from home now.

even with all that, i don't think we are any closer to our wee man arriving!

I'm still here too...had a checkup today with u/s (I am measuring at 41 cm fundal height, so they wanted to check fluid levels). It was cool to see her, but now they are estimating her at close to 8 lb...1.5 lb more than my last two! Here she is if you want to take a peek:
Face view #1
Face view #2
No cervical check (fine by me!), and bp, urine, etc. looks good so I go back in a week unless I get lucky and she decides to come sooner. 11 days till the due date!
