Then baby works his/her way back out of my pelvis a bit overnight, and I wake up with nothing.

This is me too. Lather, rinse, repeat every morning since about 32 weeks.

My midwife leaves town tomorrow for a week . I really hoped the baby would come before she left. I'm 39 weeks tomorrow. It's possible I'll still be pregnant when she gets back but I have my doubts.
I keep having evenings full of contractions that go nowhere and it's really getting to me, probably more and more as her 'travel dates' approach. Tonight is our last chance before she's gone.

I think my cervix is softer, but it's not any more dilated. It likes to hang at 1 1/2 to 2cm. Oh well. Life will go on.

Is it naptime yet?

Good luck and ELV, Niki!


In other news, I had some cramping and got all excited about it, then realized I just had to poop.

Ha ha, this happens to me every day! Argh. I told DH "I'm just going to start pushing the baby out now, whatever!"

I'm going to try to stay distracted today, somehow. Really I still have a week to go until my due date...I should have never let myself think this baby would come out a week early like DD did. I'll know better next pregnancy.
I totally did this with dd2 and for some unknown reason I'm doing it again. Even though dd1 was born 12 days past her due date I convinced myself that dd2 would be born early. As it turns out she was 8 days "late". It was torture and I promised myself that if I had any more children that I'd never convince myself I'd go early again. Here I am driving myself crazy wondering why the baby isn't being born. Dh and my dds are not helping.

On a more positive note I've been able to appreciate all the things I can do before the baby is here that I won't be doing after. Like today, we're going for a nature walk and a play in the park. Once baby is here it will be many weeks before I am willing to do something like that with my girls.

I finished my to-do list on Sunday. It didn't seem to get me anywhere. I hope that you have better results.

This is happening to me too. Last night dh got a real kick out of watching me waddle to the bathroom. I could barely walk the baby was so low. Woke up this morning to a big fat baby butt way up high.

I'll just agree with everything said to Niki:P Grr but seriously ELV!!!!

Nothing new here. Peed about 90 times last night. Got no sleep because of severe cramping. The usual. Like Pepper I'm trying hard to stay busy. I've got some work to do for my classes (which it looks I'll be finishing). I made supper and a lentil soup which should last. I need to run to the store to get some more things we forgot to pick up...then tonight I'm cleaning my kitchen including the floor (hands and knees time). I'm hoping that all this will not distract me but utterly exhaust me so that maybe, just maybe I can get some sleep.

Due date is next Friday!!!!! Can not believe i made it this far!

I just realized that the diaper covers I have made are totally not going to be kind to an umbilical stump. So much for the completion of my to-do list.
I guess I'll at least have something to keep my hands busy for the rest of the day now..

Something to do at least!! Are you knitting or sewing the covers?

I'm finishing up a take baby home sweater that I started with the hopes of not completing.

Oh and have I mentioned that my FIL is coming at some point? Yeah no fixed date. GRR. So basically I feel this intense pressure to keep the house really clean until he decides to show up. Plus I have to ENTERTAIN him while dh is at work. And we all know how lovely that will be if I'm still freakin' pregnant. I figure it would serve them both right if I go into labor the day he calls from the train station to pick him up.

My baby is crammed nice and low, and she stays there. The upside is no heartburn, the downside is all of the peeing and pressure.

I can't collect the eggs out of the back of the chicken coop without peeing my pants now, can you believe that? You have to squat down and lean way over to get them. My DH is horrified and amused at this problem. I've been making him collect the eggs now, and every time he bends over the tiny bantam rooster flies up and pecks DH in the butt.

Oh and I have so had the series of cramps-get excited-poop thing happening. Argh! My only consolation is that's how I ended up walking around at 5-6cm for a week with DD...I would get cramps and poop a lot and it was actually contractions that were doing something.

I'm not having anything today though. Just a busy squirming baby. I'm waiting on the midwife to get here at any moment for our appointment, then she'll be gone for a week. So I guess unless the baby comes out tonight I'm going to be crossing my legs and telling her to stay in until next week...

I'm planning on sewing them. I'll be stuck with polar fleece, since the thrift stores seem to be fresh out of wool sweaters at the moment. I should have stocked up while I had the chance!
I'm still kicking myself for not getting the mustard colored sweater they had last time. Poo would never have shown up on that color.

I'm going to try the Wee Weka FOE gusset cover pattern, but I'll be altering it to scoop down in the front, and also tweaking it a bit since I'll be lining them and using regular elastic (FOE is pricey!).
I'll probably use the small size instead of the newborn size.

I plan on using prefolds and pull-on soakers (Katrina's pattern) most of the time, but I think wraps might be best for the newborn days and for when DD and DH want to help at diaper change time. I might also work some more on throwing together some contours with old t-shirts.

Yay, I'm going to be busy, instead of just sitting here and overthinking about what's keeping baby from coming out here to meet me!

(if anyone wants links, let me know)

DH and I DTD last night. One contraction and a whole lot of nothing out of that one.

So I tempted fate and bought a maternity swimsuit (for $4!!!) for the retreat I'm going on this weekend. So excited to be going to a place with a pool!!!

And nikirj, ELV and we definitely hate you!!

I changed my picture on Facebook to this:

Cranky Pregnant Lady

because I'm so sick of people harassing me about whether I've had a baby or not. IDIOTS! WHY DON'T THEY BELIEVE ME WHEN I SAY I'M GOING TO BE PREGNANT FOREVER?!!?
post #119 of 360
Awesome.

I feel really bad for my cousin - she's due tomorrow, I think (the 14th) and her stupid childless friends keep posting "STILL PREGNANT??? ZOMG!!!!!!" all over her Facebook. Worse, she's an OB, so all of her OB/nursing friends keep telling her to make sure she doesn't go into labor until X time so they can be on duty. Poor thing.

Part of me is vindictively happy that she's made it this long, though. She was the one who was telling me to just induce when I was whining about being pregnant with DS on his due date, and then announcing to everyone that no woman in her family had EVER reached her due date.

You guys crack me up

I'm still here at 11 days past my due date. Yes, better don't touch me or might infect you with baby that cooks for a year syndrome. DH said I'm like a horse. No, really, it was funny. Can I get a prize for being the most overdue in our DDC right now? I think I'll give myself a couple of extra muffins for that. I feel horrified for ever considering March DDC

Symptoms are non-existent for the day besides a couple of BHs. No mucus either, like none. Tomorrow is my third NST appointment. I can just see doc's face now, when I show up, and, of course, the assistant will have to make a comment about me still being there.

Go Niki! Good luck mamas, don't despair, what's a few more days/weeks/years LOL
