Liberty was born on 40+6, so if no baby by tomorrow this will be my longest pregnancy EVER, which doesn't make me feel too thrilled! I have contractions but no show or anything like that, nothing makes me think anything is happening anytime soon
I do not WANT to go beyond 41 weeks, I don't! Can't I throw a fit and make 2 year old logic work for me???
I've thrown a few temper tantrums
I'm still pregnant. But it sure feels good when i'm in the midst of them. Today i told poor dh not to do anything if he can't keep it up in the manner that i do, that i'd just do it ALL myself until the baby came. I love him, he didnt say a word and started cleaning, folding laundry and is now bathing the dog. With out a single word or dirty look. I went and got in the shower, came and had some fruit salad and escaped online. He came over kissed me on the head and asked if i felt better and apologized for not being as good a housekeeper as me.
I feel like an arse.
I think my biggest complaint is also the contractions. They either need to let up, or do something. I've had weeks of prodomal labor now. And the last 3 days i get ctx that i can't really sleep through, but don't go anywhere. Keeps me from napping and whatnot so i'm annoyed. I'm ok with labor starting, but this false crap is driving me batty.
Last night i got SOOO excited. I had a bit of mucuus when wiping and thought that it would figure, i'd go into labor when the power was out. Then one of my many trips to the bathroom i sat down and the floodgates opened. I thought my water had broke, it was THAT much pee. And i'd only peed 15 mins before and not had anything to drink in between. I got my hopes up for all of 2 seconds. Of course it wasn't, i just must have had a lot of pee held up by the baby's position. Which i am relieved to say is head down today, baby was transverse yesterday and it hurt like heck.
I'm over being pregnant.
My 'no colic from overdue baby zen' is gone. Today i want to give birth. Doesn't help when dh tells me that 41w2d is a hell of a long time to be pregnant, i try to tell him others go even longer and i very well could be since there are no signs of anything.
And since when did pineapple start labor? DH was looking up natural induction methods (much to my pissiness) and he said pineapple is now listed. I eat 2 pineapples a week and have this entire pregnancy LOL. What in it supposedly sends women into labor?
