Anybody think you'll go soon? - Page 2

post #21 of 48

3x- I keep teasing DH Im going to deliever on Superbowl Monday (Sunday there=Monday here). Hes team didn't make it so he doesn't care. I just really don't want to because i know how distracted military people can be during big games and I don't want something messed up because they want to go watch the game.

post #22 of 48

Yup. I think I will.

We'll probably start talking induction in a couple of weeks. He's 37 weeks on the 26th (at the latest, two different due dates). And we'll have to see from there. I probably won't go a day past 8th for sure.

Which means about 2-4 weeks. I'm guessing 2-3.

post #23 of 48

I don't think I will but I would LOVE to!  I'm not 36 weeks till Saturday so anytime after that I think I'd love to go.  I know a 36 weeker could have it's share of problems being a little on the early side but it's considered term right?  I just feel so tired and my history tells me this is going to be never ending.  My first was 43 weeks and my second was 42 weeks and a day.  I know in my head I will most likely be a couple weeks late but I feel ready NOW.  I don't have everything together but physically I don't care, I'm not enjoying it that much any more and I would love to see what we are having and just have my babe with me!

According to the clinic I go to full term is anything between 37 and 42 weeks. You are "past due" until 42 weeks.

post #25 of 48

Yeah, full term is not until 37 weeks. A 36 weeker is technically a preemie, and it'll say so in papers.

That's why I really want to get to 37 weeks, to avoid the preemie thing completely!

And yeah, you're not on overtime until 42 weeks.

Yeah, a 36-weeker is a "preemie," but you're not likely to have many problems if that happens.  Lots of 36-weekers don't even need the NICU at all, and at this point, the chances of developmental issues from prematurity are extremely slim.  The biggest hurdle for most 36-weekers, I think, is that establishing breastfeeding can be more difficult than with a full term baby, but it's definitely a hurdle that can be overcome if so.  I breathed a big ole sigh of relief when I hit 35 weeks last Friday, and although I want him to stay in there and cook a few more weeks, it's so beyond good to be at this point!

post #27 of 48

Yeah, I'm 35 weeks tomorrow (wednesday) and I'm so relieved to have gotten here too, and 36 weeks will also be awesome. However, full term would rock. I so want to have a full term baby.

And I would be more worried about breastfeeding and such too, with a baby now, not the preemie issues really. But I would love it to go smoothly, all of it, and hitting 37 weeks, or even 38 would make that more likely. And obviously best for baby to be 37 weeks or more.

Oh, gosh, I know.  I was really nervous at 28 weeks, but genuinely thought, "Ok, I'm going to be having this baby soon, so, all right," at that point.  Now as we come closer and closer to full term, I want it so badly - and it's actually within reach.  I'm having major anxiety attacks in a way that I haven't yet in this pregnancy, because I actually am believing that I COULD have a full-term baby, which I haven't believed at all through the course of this.  It's wonderful that at this point we're past all of the really scary preemie stuff, and I'm so grateful for that, but, of course, now I want more!  I'm okay not having the VBAC that I wanted, but I would be so, so happy to have a "take-home" baby.  And I'm 36 weeks on Friday, and my BP is still 120-130's/80's!  It's feels like so close I can taste it!

post #29 of 48

Yeah....I guess I knew 37 weeks was full term.  I was thinking that 36 weeks is when we are able to deliver at the hospital we want to, if you are before 36 weeks they send you to the bigger hospital that has a nicu and it's not as natural birth friendly.  I know in my mind I want a term baby and I know that I will most likely reach 41 or 42 weeks but I'm really impatient!

post #30 of 48

I had a dream last night that you were the next one up nosce

post #31 of 48

After I hit 36 weeks we are cleared for our homebirth, I plan on being pregnant until at least 38 weeks though. DD's birthday is on the 4th of February and her party is the 5th. I'm okay with anytime after that. :)

Ah, we're so alike sometimes, you know exactly what I mean! When he almost came at 25+6 weeks I was like "it's almost two weeks more than 24, almost three weeks more than 23 weeks, this'll be ok", and I was also very relieved to hit 28 weeks, big milestone. And then as I've hit 30, 32 and 34 weeks I've been more and more awed. (Every week, or every day, really, you know.)

And now, when I'm so close I so badly want a full term baby! When I had contractions every 2 min. last week and we thought I'd give birth that day I was like "It'll be fine if you come now, but, couldn't you just have waited a tad longer?" Now that I'm this far along, I just really want to reach 37 weeks! So close I can taste it, you said it. It really is.

Here's to full term babies for the both of us!

 

post #33 of 48

I have had a feeling this one will be sooner than later, lots of pre labor signs so I'm just hoping to get to 37 weeks. Even if the baby is perfect we can't opt out and leave at 12 hours like we want if the baby isn't full term (we'd have to stay the 24hr at least)

 

I have had a feeling this whole pregnancy this baby was going to be in the 20's date wise, so...really that means early or 41 weeks...

 

I will be so happy when this is over, I've been so paranoid during this pregnancy, even now I'm still not really believing this is real. Going through IF with DS makes this baby almost seem magical and I'm still trying to wrap my head around a live baby to bring home (I haven't had loss, but fear it.)

 

Plus, I've had to take a bath the past 4 nights in a row to check for preterm labor, verse BH.... I'm so glad I know how to check my own cervix!

post #34 of 48

Wondering even more what will happen--just got back from the MW where I was hooked up to a monitor for about 45 minutes, showing contractions about every 3-6 minutes. I'm 60% effaced, and 2 cm dilated...all of which would be alarming if this wasn't my 3rd baby :)  

 

I don't know, i feel weird today, was awakened at 3am with contractions strong enough to make me gasp, they lasted for 2 hours before I managed to fall back asleep.  And they've been coming all day about 10 minutes or less apart...but not getting noticeably stronger right now.

 

I'm only 34 weeks today, so eep!

Eep! is right. Not that I'd wish it on anyone, but here's hoping that this is some prodomal labour and that baby stays in a little longer for you.

This is my first Post. EDD is feb 18th . But I feel huge and misable this is baby #4. I don't remember feeling like this this early. I sure hope I go soon. As soon as I hit 37 weeks in two weeks. It is hard for me to walk there is so much pressure on my lower stomach and bones I seriously waddle like i just wet my pants and have to pee every10 mins. I don't know how I could take much more of this.

post #37 of 48

Big hug Mimihol, that sounds miserable.  Hope you are able to put your feet up and relax some.

post #38 of 48

Mimihol- Welcome.gif Hopefully you can find some relief soon! Ive been having hip/back problems but they come and go so 90% of the time I can at least function.

My due date is feb 14th and i feel exactly like you do, I hope we both have some relief.

post #40 of 48

I delivered on my due date with #1, and 4 days late with #2.  However, I feel like I'm going to go early this time.  I am 37 weeks.  I've never felt Braxton Hicks before, and I'm just feel SO uncomfortable!  I wish she would stay until her due date - my to-do list is a MILE LONG.

 

I can't believe how many babies have been born since I was last online.  Any chance we could have a list put up?
