I have been a total grouch, Sarah! I didn't want to bring the debbie downer to the DDC (and also, I usually log on from my blackberry and this new format constantly makes it crash which is so annoying), so I have been kind of quiet. I folded and sent DS1 to visit the grandparents for the week. He may come back Sunday, or I may ask them to keep him until the baby is born. I half want him at the birth and half prefer he not be there--this is an HBAC and in case of transfer, we don't really have anyone to watch him, so one of my MWs would have to stay with him and miss the birth. And I have been sooo tired and pretty worthless lately that I thought he would have a lot more fun with people who have energy, and he is! He loves visiting and while I miss him, I know this is best for now. I was really hoping to go into labor tonight with the full moon, solstice AND lunar eclipse, but no dice yet. Mild cx, nothing too painful and definitely not timeable, mild back pain but they may be from my soft mattress (and this is how my nights have been for awhile, so nothing new). Hubby is snoring SO loudly, it's driving me crazy! He is on the couch and I am in the bedroom with my ears plugged watching tv and trying not to feel too sorry for myself.
I don't know if you guys remember bebegim from our DDC. She was more active in the beginning of the DDC and then kind of quieted down. I just wanted to share that she got her HBAC. Baby boy was born on 12/17 (two weeks past her DD, on my DD lol). 10lb2oz! I am so proud of her and she is giving me great inspiration for my own HBAC.
DoomaYula--that is my worst nightmare. I told my MWs to not even tell me if a January mom has her baby soon. Seriously.
Coraljean--tons of LVs your way. Are you going to try anything else in the next couple days? I did acupuncture a week or two ago, but it was mostly to keep my blood pressure, which has been rising, down. My MWs have someone they recommend, but she's really expensive and we didn't really budget for it (but I will make room if I get desperate LOL)
Sarah--Wow, I hope you go this week! I told this little guy that he is allowed to come on any day except Jesus' birthday or the eve of his birth LOL So, I'm hoping he comes before Thursday. It is weird b/c I have never been pregnant this long. I had my DS just shy of 39 weeks. Of course, I do NOT want to repeat his birth experience, so I am trying to be patient, but I am still whiny and feeling sorry for myself lol My mom never went overdue, so I was hoping that would be me too, but my MWs said often VBACs go a little later and looks like they were right. Pooh! lol
