OMG. I want to have. this. baby!!! - Page 3

post #41 of 57
Actually, the one thing I really, really want done before baby comes is my car. My accident was 2 months ago, and the body shop still has it! I want to be the one to pick it up, but I don't want to haul a newborn to the body shop. If I'm being optimistic, I might get to pick it up tomorrow, but in reality, it could easily be late next week.

I'm so sick of driving borrowed/rented cars. I'd really like to have a few days to enjoy my convertible before there's a baby in the back and the top has to stay up. Plus, it's just one less thing to worry about, which would be nice.

today is our 3 year (dating) anniversary.

I suppose it wouldn't be HORRIBLE to have her today...

I'm having a lot of back pain coming and going (resting didnt help it) but cant say if its early labor that's lasting longer than it did with DD... or if I really just hurt my back.

Done!

Well, after our little scare the other night, we have all the homebirth stuff (excepting the actual birth kit which is on its way) now. It's all over the floor in shopping bags, but at least its in the house now. I need to braid a cord tie, too. I thought the idea was neat, and I'd like something to use in case we truly need to cut the cord and the birth kit and/or midwife isn't here yet. I need to wash the clothes, too. Last night we got side-tracked, but maybe tonight dh can move a bunch of heavy stuff around for me so that I can put things where they'll be easy to get to.

I agree, I'm getting really crappy sleep right now. I'm so uncomfortable. I think I'll sleep more with the baby here!

What does one look like when they look "birthy?"

I will take just a little bit. Only 35 weeks, but being a VBAC, I will take what I can get.

Just enough to help ripen things along.

And it's soooooo not fair to post this. Now I'm going to be neurotically checking this thread for updates today.

I've been having contractions for a week. Yesterday I had them all freaking day long. I am exhausted. I mean, I fell asleep sitting upright while talking to the kids yesterday exhausted as in, these are REAL contractions and they are slowly wearing me down.

I've got the brethane but I can't take it if someone isn't available to help with the kids.

I'm starting to break mentally. I mean, I know I need to realistically hold out another week, but I'm just not sure I can take it for another week. I'll be 36 weeks on the 29th.

Oh, and the discharge is nasty. Just gross. I've gone from 0-3+, as a bit stretchy and funneling. Good fun, not.

My wrecked car hasn't even MADE it to the body shop. I don't see it happening any time soon either. They're already estimated it will be 2-3 weeks at the body shop once I pick one. But I'm not entirely convinced they're not snowballing me on the damage either.

I think we should all get in line by "guess date" for the labor vibes. Except maybe poor Crafty...she's miserable!

For me, I did not have that much warning, other than all of a sudden I was OK to have the baby. No more labor fears, no impatience, just a sense of "I can do this". And I had him the next day.
But also, being extra nesty, mood change, etc. My mom would get really cranky right before her births.

I'm 38w today, and this boy is going to stay around longer than his brother. I truly have not felt that shift. It's getting close though... I don't think it will be another week.

Oh you are sweet! Fortunately, I'm September 1 EDD anyway, so I wouldn't be cutting too much.

I am having a 90 minute massage today. Last week this started some very strong contractions that unfortunately amounted to nothing. But it was only 60 minutes...and a week earlier. Here's to wishful thinking for today!

Although this baby is STILL not low enough I don't think and I need to just get with the realistic program. I doubt he'll be anything less than a 40 week butterball. We don't make microwaves in my family, apparently.

I may be regretting giving away my labor vibes since this morning I found out optimal timing to have her and still make it home for a wedding I am VERY excited for (my little brother) is before labor day weekend =(

No takebacks! j/k Hope you get the very best birthday for you and little Mae.

Mae - I'm missing my little brother's wedding because of this baby, and though I couldn't be happier about the babe, it's a sad thing to miss. I hope your little one comes at just the right time for you to do it all!

Liz - I can't count the number of times I heard, "We're almost done." or "Maybe a week and a half to go." I get that it was a big job, but enough is enough already. And is it too much to ask for a realistic estimate of timing? Not an exact deadline, just something this side of absolute fantasy. Sorry you're just going into being without your car at such a bad time for it!
