Where are my late Oct due data mamas? - Page 2

post #21 of 34
I'm not due til the 26th. I'm thinking I'll go early since I did with my first, but if I keep thinking that way I'll still be pregnant in mid-Nov.
I've been super nauseous that past two days and only feel like eating a couple times a day. My back has also been very sore.
I have all the NEED to get dones, done; the car seat is installed, clothes and diapers are washed and put away. However the other things (mostly sewing things) aren't done and really need to get going on them. I have to finish his quilt, cause its what we'll use to cover him in the car. DD is getting a life-size newborn doll, so she can take care of her "baby" while I take care of the baby and it only came with one diaper, so I'm making more so she can change it. My SIL asked me to make a runner for her sons dresser, and I'm only about 1/3 of the way done with the babies halloween costume. None of them need to done before baby come, but like I'll have time after he does . O and I need to clean the house and get a few more meals in the freezer.

OK now I'm overwhelmed, glad I have 4 weeks left.

I'll be here for a while. I'm due on the 23rd, but my babies like to make late appearances, so I won't be surprised to go closer to Halloween. My son's birthday is Nov. 1, and I know it's possible that they will be sharing a birthday. I feel bad about that, but he says he doesn't mind. Anyway, I have just about everything ready (due to my early compulsive nesting behavior), but I don't expect a baby anytime soon. Sigh.

I'm due the 31st. Based on past births I feel I'll go early so I'm having everything ready by the 37th week. So far I have done only one thing on my rather extensive to-do list. I'm waiting on that nesting thing to kick in.

Our edd is the 27th. I went 40w5d with my first so I'm not expecting anything early but the last month is just the WORST!!

I've been forcing myself to relax lately, which really isn't working. I can't wait to be 37 weeks, then I'll start dancing and having a lot of sex and mentally preparing myself for this baby's arrival... but until then every twinge gives me a little panic like "I'M NOT READY YET!!"

Everything is ready for the birth, though, which makes it worse because I feel like I don't have anything else to do.

I'm due 11/1, but have been lurking here from the start because my others were born at 37 and 38 weeks, and I'd be a bit surprised to even make it to late October.

Yeah. I'll relax a lot on Monday, when I'll be 36 weeks, and my MW will be willing to do a homebirth. Not actually going to start encouraging it until after 37 weeks, though. 36 is just a bit earlier than I'd prefer, regardless of discomfort.

Well at my appt today my cervix was closed and high and the baby's head was so high my ob couldn't even feel it! (She palpated my stomach though and said he's definitely head down, just very high). So I'm definitely not expecting to have a baby anytime soon I'm fairly certain I'll be pregnant forever.

I'm due 10/30, but boy do I feel like I'm going to go early! We're having a little girl - our first. Very excited. Starting to put together the hospital/birth center bag this week. I finish work this week to start prenatal leave (we have 4 weeks "use it or lose it" in California - not sure about other states). I think I'm almost just as excited about being done with work!

So at the Dr.'s yesterday, he told me: "we won't try to stop labor but we'd prefer you made it til 37 weeks." I hadn't asked anything about that, we were just talking about how my BP had been high and he had measured and felt my belly. (I'm measuring a week ahead) Would you take that as he thinks baby will prob. come early? I did have DD at 38.5 weeks. I just thought it was weird that he brought that up out of nowhere.

waterlight- You're in Half Moon Bay? I'm in Pacifica and also having a girl, due 10/31! We should meet up sometime.

What's this "4 weeks use it or lose it" thing? I know you can get 6 weeks of baby bonding time paid at half your current salary once the baby is born through EDD. I'm happy about that! I'm just wondering what the thing is you're talking about?

I'm due oct 22nd but my uterus is confused and so I don't know if I will go tonight or be over due. The nurse at l/d last night said my uterus needs to sh** or get off the pot. I did dialate 1 cm from 8pm -9am today so that is good (I'm now a stretchy 3. OHHHHH AHHHHH). I'm 37 w (I say today, mw say tomorrow) I'm trying to just forget about the whole giving birth thing from now on. After 4 times to l/d b.c my uterus hates me or hates this baby, maybe both, I'm now going to think I will never deliver. Then when I go into labor I will be shocked and happy whenever that is.

Well my doula thinks I'm going to go this Saturday (which is weird because I've had the 2nd stuck in my head!) so we'll find out in a couple days if we have any psychic ability or not

I don't really have time to have this baby any earlier than the week of the 25th, so I hope he plans on staying put no matter how uncomfortable I am lol.

Late October too!

Doesn't it feel some afternoons that time has stopped? Come one October, get a move on it! I'm expecting the 23rd. But truly if baby wants to amaze the me sooner, I would be thrilled. Ok, equally terrified and thrilled. I don't remember my other babes kicking and shoving me around so much. I think we are about as prepared as we are going to be.....
