End of the month due date mamas - Page 5

post #81 of 89
Just had some swelling in my feet today. That's new. I'm more tired today too, but I didn't get much sleep last night and none the night before. So I think 2 days of little sleep is getting to me today. I might lay down for a nap soon since DD1 is napping right now and DD2 has her Rapunzel movie on. She has watched that movie every day this week and last week. At least its a break from the Tinkerbelle movie. I like it, but not everyday. So I'm hoping she'll find a new favorite or go back to another one soon. Lol.

We're at 40 weeks today. My partner's been off for a week because work is idiotic and made her come up with a date she thought I would go into labor. So now, she will have less time to spend with us once the baby gets here since she only gets one more week of paid leave.

Monarch, your midwife sounds like my drill sergeant of a wife, except yours sounds nicer. She's got me running up and down stairs, nursing DS, trying plan humpy hump, and nothing seems to be working. : I lost my mucus plug a while ago, baby's really low, lots of contractions, and still nada. I'm not getting too impatient, but my partner is. Tomorrow is our next appointment and I think we'll see what she suggests.

I've been losing bits of my plug off and on for over 2 weeks now. That is the frustrating part.

quasar- I understand your partner's dilema. She wants to spend as much time with the baby instead of possibly spending most of the time off without baby.

Lots of strong cx last night, but nothing. Had my membranes stripped at my mw appt, figured why not at this point. Had a little spotting afterward, nothing dramatic.

I was actually starting to get used to being pregnant...then saw a cute little foot today while I was taking a bath (through my belly, obviously!) and got all excited/impatient to see/meet/hold her again...Can't be TOO much longer!

I had a spurt of energy this afternoon. Cleaned my bedroom fan blades and then cleaned my DS8's walls in his room. He had a layer of dust on the walls. His room is the worst and I can't seem to keep the dust from collecting on the walls. But for some reason I got to it right then. Then wiped the rail of the wall as you come down the stairs. So got all that done. Yay!

Hubby is watching Babe In The City. ROFL!!!!!!! Of all the movies he could be watching... this is the one he picks. He baffles me sometimes.

Hello due/guess date! Now, where's my baby?

I don't think I've ever been so emotional/tired/inpatient/physically over it in my life. I just keep thinking that everyday without this baby is one less day that my sister and DH are here with me. I'm having a hard time staying positive.

I hear you! I was crying this morning in the shower because I am just sick of it-- I broke out in a rash all over my belly and it itches like crazy. Getting ready to call my midwife, I think. I am so grouchy, I feel awful for my children-- they deserve a more pleasant parent!

That's really, truly for the mamas who have partners that will be spending less time with the baby as the pregnancy goes longer and longer.

Yesterday I took ds to the park and he dislocated his elbow, so we spent the evening in emerg waiting for the MD to pop it back in. I was bawling after he went to bed because I realized it is one of the last days we get to spend just the two of us before the baby arrives and he ended up hurting himself. I felt terrible that it happened because I don't hover over him the way some parents would with a 27 month old

I woke up with one (one!) massive contraction last night that shot down my legs and lasted just over a minute. I thought I might be in labour because with ds I went from nothing to full-on active labour. It just triggered some abdominal cramping and eventually I fell back to sleep.

Be well everyone!

I guess I'll be having a November baby. Due date was Saturday, 10/30. Nada. So uncomfortable, not sleeping at all, I just want to whine! Plus, my blood pressure was elevated somewhat at last OB visit, and now I've had headaches for the last two days. I guess I better call OB's office when they open this morning (yep, I've been online since 3am because I can't sleep).
