Who's Left? Roll call!

post #1 of 268
Thread Starter 

Since, while I'm very happy for the latest flood of babies (what is it with Friday night around here - that's two in a row we've got slammed on!) I feel like this:  bawling.gif

 

Come and keep me company! 

 

Who else is left?

post #2 of 268

Me! Feeling restless these days, there isn't anything left to do to get ready. 

 

post #3 of 268

Me!  Cleaning, again, today.  You know, just in case today is the day.  Yeah right!

 

I am feeling pretty patient.  Until he kick my ribs and rams my cervix at the same time that is.  redface.gif

 

I'm at 39 weeks today.  We'll see if I'm ready to inact project Stripping of the Membrames For Mostly Selfish Reasons on Friday.

I am due on Monday. Have a midwife appointment scheduled for Tuesday and am going for the stretch and sweep if nothing has happened by then.

 

Hang in there mamas our times are coming!

Not due for a couple of weeks, but I'm feeling like I could go at any time...keep having intense contractions every day but they're always sporadic irked.gif  Everything is technically done but I would like to vacuum and do a few chores that I keep putting off because of lack of energy...blah.

post #6 of 268

Still here! My due date is February 25 and I don't think I will go early. More than likely I will go into March a bit or close to it.

 

My midwife said her other February moms-to-be both went a week early on the exact same day and their labour started the exact same way. Now they are just waiting for me. I told them not to hold their breath LOL

I was due the 8th....

Had my first NST today and the baby was completely freaking out, wouldn't stop kicking and moving and it took them forever to get a baseline heart rate.

At first my BP was high but then it came back down, I think because they had my laying on my back which made it hard for me to breath.

 

Bad news is the baby is no longer engaged.  MW said I have so much fluid (I was measuring 45 weeks, last week...) that the baby seems free to move around and that's what it did.

Ugh.  Trying to be optimistic but have another NST and an US scheduled for Wednesday.  Hopefully things will happen before then....

I'm still here too. Not due till 2-23. I swore I wouldn't get impatient this time around but... AHHHHH! I am READY. I was having contrax last night for a long time, but not having them now. It's hard to not get excited when that happens, and disappointed when it stops. Oh well, what can you do?

 

Michelle- I hope your baby engages and stays put soon! 

 

Rainbow: I hear you on the lack of energy! I wanted to shampoo the rug but the thought of renting the machine and dragging it around and so on is just too much. I also wanted to paint my bedroom, but that certainly isn't going to happen! It's a chore just to throw together something for dinner!

post #9 of 268

I'm still here. I won't be online after Sunday, though, because we're off to Estrella War. We'll be back on the 21st, which is the day before my due date, unless, of course, I go into labor, in which case I'll come back sooner!

post #10 of 268

I'm still here - due the 20 or 22. My last baby was born at 37w2d so we ended up getting ready early just in case and now we're stuck waiting. I don't mind the waiting for baby exactly but I'm so exhausted and suffering from SPD (or PSD or whatever the acronym is...orngtongue.gif) and having a hard time with the other two kids that every weekend I just dread having to spend another whole week home alone with them. I keep hoping I'll have the baby so that dh can stay home with us.

 

I'm feeling like the baby is never going to come...

  Same story here, I'm due the 23rd. DD came at 37w5d so we were prepared early and now... Well, I'm really hoping that I go into labor so I don't have to go back to work on Monday.

 

post #12 of 268

I'm here too! My due date is tomorrow (by ultrasound) or Wednesday (by unreliable cycle dates) so hoping something starts happening in the next couple of days.

 

I'm only just starting to get uncomfortable, sore and so.frickin.tired I'm like a zombie. I sleep A LOT. And lay around a lot. And feel bad for not being able to play with the kids or even read to them for very long because I get uncomfortable staying in one position for too long. They have been great though, totallly understanding and really good at playing by themselves or with each other & letting me rest. I have been cranky a few times with them & apologized & ds says "it's ok mom, it happens to everyone" happytears.gif

 

Luckily DH is now off work til the 28th so baby can come anytime!!! I still can't believe I'm having another baby though LOL

SO glad to find friends!  grouphug.gif I suffered from PUPPP last time (an itchy rash all over your belly) so I didn't have this gradual collapse into being done.  I'm not sure what to feel or what to do with myself.

 

What are you all doing to keep busy?

Although I have felt great this entire pregnancy, and SWORE not to get impatient until at least 41 weeks, I have been in this boat the last few days! I am 39+4 and feeling all this pressure of family trying to make plans to visit from out of state and DH trying to decide whether we can make plans to go to dinner, etc. - like I need to hurry up and have him by a certain time, to accommodate everyone else's schedules!! Ridiculous, I know, but it's how I feel and it's making me crazy!!

post #15 of 268

Still here.
Due 2/22

Baby is so low and the pressure in my pelvis is intense... it hurts to sit.   *ouch* Had some bloody show on Tuesday but nothing since then.

Trying to stay busy with some last minute crochet/crafting projects to pass the time since the craft swap was a fail (for me at least). Also trying to entertain my almost 2 yr old twins who have suddenly become super clingy and want to be in my lap all the time.

We're all getting over a cold here, hoping little man stays put for at least another week to give everyone time to get healthy.

Glad to see there are others still pregnant! Although I love seeing all the new pictures of all the babies... stillheart.gif

post #16 of 268

Still here although I mostly only lurk these days... 

 

MW has me due Tuesday the 15th and the ultrasound had the 20th and I figured the 22nd based my thermal shift charting waaaay back when. I was firmly stuck on the 22nd as my edd until I hit 37 weeks since I've been contracting steadily and noticeably since mid-January. I figure since I have a whole week of time to spare from my figuring I'm going to count Tuesday as week 39 all over again in lieu of 40 and going...

 

my first was born at 39 weeks on the dot and my second at 41+ something or other... I really, really wanted this one to be more on the early side. 

 

Baby's been really engaged for weeks but fluid is still quite high. Could be tonight, could be in two weeks. Trying to stay positive, not being patient enough with the end of this pregnancy nor with my other two children :(

post #17 of 268

I'm still here. Not due til the 27th, but I'm with Lyterae and wish I'd just have the baby so I don't have to go back to work Monday either!

post #18 of 268

I'm tempted to make a trip to Hobby Lobby to see if I can find a craft project to entertain myself with. I'm bored and I can't seem to focus on anything.

 

post #19 of 268

i'm so glad to see so many feb. 22nd mamas! alas, i'm not alone in the wait! :) i guess that's not to nice to say, but it's nice to feel. i'll actually be surprised if we go before march ( i don't mind happy surprises like that though! hint, hint babe!), but i'm mostly good with that. i have myself been cranky, and found myself apologizing for being grumpy to dh, but that's really been in the evening/nights, when i'm overly tired and trying to get comfortable in bed! :) particularly when he's trying to snuggle and i feel too crowded... :( in the days, i'm still doing good...but also have varying degrees of tired. 

 

on the question of what to do to occupy time....trying to have an appointment/meeting a day...still working, napping, reading more, not cleaning! :) i figure cleaning can be my early labor project! thumb.gif and working through anything birth related that i feel needs to be done to help prepare for a smooth birth, i think i'll pull out the art supplies this week and do some birth drawings...oh yeah, and putting off talking with family who seems to think babe should already be here...when i haven.t even reached the edd! seriously!?

 

the good news...february is a short month!

the bad news...then march starts and the babes didn't necessarily get the memo about making their entrance for our february due dates! :) 

 

soon mama, soon! we've waited lots of months already...i guess we can go a few more weeks! :)

I'm due 2/15 and waiting patiently. My daughter was born 2 weeks before her EDD so this last stretch has been really difficult for me. I'm contemplating having my Mom come down from VT either tomorrow or tuesday to help out. I just don't want her to be waiting around. Hmmm. I've only been sleeping about 4 hours every night for the last week. My midwife offered to break my water last thursday due to my bag of waters bulging and being just abour 5 cm dilated. I declined that for now but may do that this week. I do want to have a water birth if I can though. I feel like all I do is complain now lol!
