Me!!  I love being pregnant, and am petrified at havign a newborn and two year old, but I am definitely excited to meet this little one!

 

Due date is today, and although I didn't expect baby to arrive today (my first was 10 days late), I was hopeful.  I want to meet this baby and see what sex they are and get to know them, but know part of me is all done with work and I just really want to start my mat leave (measly 2 months, but still)!  Some very mild cramping and the occasional painless contraction, but nothing other than that.  I am so hoping to go into labor with this little one rather than PROM and pitocin as with my daughter!

 

Hope to see more babies soon though (including mine!)....love the birth stories!

with my first I loved being pregnant, and wanted her to stay put. this time I've pretty much hated being pregnant the whole time, just a much harder pregnancy on me physically and emotionally and I'm ready to be done feeling like this.

Sara, I meant to say *queen* bed, not twin.  We have a beautiful king-sized bed in storage, but no room for it right now.  I'm really missing it, especially since I can't sleep without my U pillow.

 

Vegan Emma and Camille, so glad you're enjoying pregnancy.  I actually feel well enough that I could keep going.  I'm getting my tubes tied, so I know this is the last couple days of pregnancy ever.

 

ForestMama, Oh I hope you go soon.  Glad you got out and felt a little better.

 

I finished a giant stack of mending last night but I have so much to do tonight and tomorrow night. 

 

The friend that was going to watch our kids during the c/s Thursday decided she was going to take them out of town to her sister's house, and her sister just posted on FB that her kids are puking.  I was in tears last night to DH because I don't want our kids out of town while I'm having surgery *just in case*.  I tried to explain to our friend that I am worried that something would happen to me with a 3rd C/S, and she TOLD ME NOT TO WORRY (she doesn't have any kids, but is great with them).  I also told her I don't want to get stomach virus and don't want the kids or the baby to get it.  And she told me it's not contagious . . .

 

I know she thinks I'm crazy, but the last thing I want to do is vomit and have diarrhea right after a c/s, LET ALONE have an ill newborn.  My kids LOVE her niece and nephew, but I don't think baby sister's birthday is the right time to take my kids out of town.  I was sobbing about it last night.  Child care is such a difficult thing for us.  Part of it is me - I don't trust anyone, you know?  And I get all weepy and clingy and get Special Snowflake Syndrome at the end of pregnancy where I feel like no one but me can do anything right for my kids.

 

So now I guess I need to make different arrangements, and it's so hard to find someone to stay with them all day.  Everyone works!  Ugh.  I thought we had it figured out, and now it's the last minute and I'm scrambling.

 

If she had just *asked* us instead of making plans, but now her sister doesn't have childcare and she's locked in.  I hate that everything feels so hard.  I try to be so generous about stuff like this.  I can't believe we're in this dilemma at the 11th hour.

post #164 of 389

It's my due date! I can't believe I made it this far, I really, really can't. As far as loving pregnancy... yeah, not so much. I enjoy the second trimester, after you can regularly feel the baby kick but aren't yet huge and super uncomfortable. That's about it. I will say I was not this anxious to have my second baby, when my first was only 15 months old. But I really can't stand the last few weeks of pregnancy, and this is not just the longest, but the worst.

 

ForestMama, I totally feel you.

 

Baby feels soooo low I can't believe it. I have to spread my legs quite a bit just to sit up straight, which is new. She also feels really big in there, I am starting to get a bit nervous about pushing out a big baby! My others were 7 lb 7 oz and 7 lb 1 oz, and both were born at 38 weeks, so I am pretty sure this one will be a lot bigger. Here's hoping I'm wrong and I have another 7 pounder! At 37 weeks my midwife thought she was about 6 3/4 lbs, she seems to take up SO MUCH MORE SPACE now.

 

I am really worried about not knowing when to go in and having a fast labor. I've done some reading on prodromal labor, and it sounds like a precipitous birth at this point could definitely happen. And then when I read that you should go in when you can't talk or walk through the contractions.... I could always walk and talk through them until I hit transition. And with my second, she was born within 10 minutes of transition ending. And I don't want to be in the car during transition, that sounds awful!!!! So I am getting a little on edge about things. I am not at all afraid of labor itself, but I am nervous about giving birth in a car or at home by myself, things like that. If I had realized that things would be like this I probably would have looked into a home birth more. Depending on how things go with the birth my next one might be at home! That just doesn't sound so pleasant, either... I have no tub, just showers, no room, three dogs and two cats... arg. Look at me borrowing trouble-- we're not even 100% that we are having another!

Wow Lyss, that's just....not okay.  I'm so sorry that you're in this situation.  Argh, I wish I could help!

 

So, I'm having a really frustrating day (which, I'm sure, isn't helping my blood pressure).  My sister is here until Thursday and I'm sort of stressing because I'd REALLY like her to be here when the baby is born.  She offered to come down when I was told that I WAS having the baby Thursday night, and now she's just....here.  She's been really helpful with the kids, but I just really want her here for the birth.

 

Then I called the company that handles our short-term disability to tell them that I was on bedrest and they weren't particularly helpful at all and the lady got huffy when I told her that I didn't know the dr's fax number.  She basically said "well, call back when you have it and we can get the process started".  Fine.  So, I call the dr's office and the nurse doesn't see anywhere in my file that I'm on bedrest.  So now there's an email put out to my OB to get confirmation, I have to fill out a release for my records and the nurse told ME to get the forms to them so they could fax them.  Wait.....aren't I supposed to be on bedrest to lower my blood pressure?????  

post #166 of 389

Nah, I'm happy to stay pregnant for as long as possible too. I haven't prepared much at all, at home. And, I'd like to have some time off of work before the baby comes. i'd love to go 40+ weeks. I was 41.5 weeks with my first son before I was induced. I keep catching myself assuming that I will go that long this time, though in reality I have no idea. I keep hoping!

post #167 of 389

You were posting at the same time as me, Lyss... so sorry to hear about your troubles, that sucks!!! I would be upset, too, and don't think you are being unreasonable at all. Who wants their kids to be far away at such a time? And who wants their kids staying with people who have a stomach bug? Bringing it home would just be icing on your cake. Good luck, I really hope you can figure something out!

post #168 of 389

I missed all these comments when I replied last, somehow.

 

Oh, thank goodness! I was miserable for  you in that twin bed! What an awful turn of events for Thursday :( I get you on the childcare thing, it is SO hard! <hug>

post #169 of 389

Lyss- Sorry you're having to deal with such a stressful situation!  I hope you guys can figure something out.

 

Squrrl-I feel you!!!  Fingers crossed for both of us.

 

I wanna have this baby!  I had a good appointment with my midwife yesterday.  She said all my contractions sounded encouraging, but that the baby's head wasn't very low.  She suggested I do some belly lifting during the random contractions I've been getting to try to get the head down in the pelvis.  I feel like the baby may be a little lower today, but I'm still not feeling much pressure on my cervix.  

I had four strong contractions in a row last night around 3 a.m., but of course they stopped.  Which was probably good because I needed some sleep.  

And then of course DD woke up with a fever this morning, so we're both vying for position on the couch today.  

post #170 of 389

Lyss- You decided to go ahead with the scheduled c/s?  Is your dh going home with them while you stay overnight?  If that's the case, it possible to find someone to watch them at the hopsital in the family waiting room or a park by the hospital for a couple of hours, just while you are in surgery and recovery with dh?

 

I'd like to go at least 40 weeks myself, Emma. I typically always have more that I'd like to get done before the baby comes, and I make small babies to boot. I feel like they need that time in utero! This is really the first time I've gotten it all done in time. My mom is coming 5 days before my actual EDD, which is stressing me out. I'm hoping that it helps keep baby in!

post #171 of 389
I want to post more but will have to wait until I'm on my computer not phone. I just wanted to say that my reasoning for wanting baby out now is that my leave (6w) started yesterday. I was just getting too uncomfortable at my desk and walking back and forth, and with the prodromal stuff I thought I'd have baby by now. I hate the thought of missing weeks with her at the end, so I want her here asap! Having newborn is challenging, but I'm ready to start the next chapter and finish this one. smile.gif

That is totally understandable!!! I wish you were able to take more time off :(

it must be really hard to have such a small amount of leave available and have to start before baby arrives. the maternity leave situation in the US is ridiculous. 

 

 

Lyss, I totally agree about the kids not being taken out of town and not being exposed to a possible stomach bug. I'm sorry you're having issues with childcare. I understand about not trusting a lot of people to take care of the kids. I'm really lucky to have a lot of family in town, and I have a couple of friends that I trust, but that's about it.

Hey!  I figured out the multi quote thing!  I'm so totally dangerous now.

Yuck.  Who needs that kind of frustrating BS right now?  My sister wanted to come but she lives on another continent.  I am REALLY regretting not having her here.  Is your sister far away?  And I hate all that paperwork.  It all has to be signed, etc., and what 40w pregnant woman/mother with a newborn can take care of all that stuff?  It seems so unnecessary.

Katroshka, I can't believe you're still waiting!  It does sound horrible giving birth at home alone or in the car (or in the entrance to the hospital, etc.).  I'm sure you will be more mindful about leaving earlier?  It's hard to balance not waiting long enough and waiting too long.  At least you don't have to worry about being turned away!  Sorry you're so uncomfortable, and hope you are smelling that sweet baby smell soon.

I hated it at the beginning, but am feeling a little more indulgent now that it's nearly over.  Although knowing I don't have to wait probably makes it better.  A sideways, back-up baby is SO uncomfortable.  From my hips to my belly.

How far along are you?  My DD has an ear infection and DS has a cold, so I know what you mean.  But they get SO energetic at night.  It's like little irritating tornadoes making messes.  I hope the baby dropped down for you.  It's frustrating not to have any control.

I'd like to go at least 40 weeks myself, Emma. I typically always have more that I'd like to get done before the baby comes, and I make small babies to boot. I feel like they need that time in utero! This is really the first time I've gotten it all done in time. My mom is coming 5 days before my actual EDD, which is stressing me out. I'm hoping that it helps keep baby in!


This is the first time I haven't had a desk job while pregnant.  I think all of the activity of being a SAHM has made pregnancy much more bearable, and I think this baby will be smaller because I get so much more exercise.  Why is it stressing you out your mom is coming?  Hope you enjoy the time with no to-do list!

 

I am going to go ahead with the scheduled c-section.  The childcare stuff is so awful.  Our friend is going to take the kids to school in the morning, so if I don't get bumped by an emergency c/s, then surgery will be over by the time the kids go out of town.  They will have fun and be happy.  Our friend promises she won't take them if there are any signs of sickness in the kids.  It really threw me for a loop that she made all these plans, etc., without going over them with us.  I don't think she has any idea how stressful this all is, or how much I hate leaving my kids with people.  DS is nearly 3.5, but he still puts everything in his mouth (beads, toys, etc.).  My mom offered to fly out for a couple days to be here for the surgery, but it's so much money and I know I will really need her help when DH goes back to work.  I'm just going to accept that I did the best I could to figure out the childcare stuff.  It's not what I expected or wanted, but if this unplanned pregnancy has taught me anything, it's how little control I have over my life as a mother-of-2-soon-to-be-3!

 

Thanks for all your kind comments.  She is generously staying the night Thursday and Friday so DH can be at the hospital, which helps a lot.  The baby was head-down for a little bit yesterday, but then turned again sideways, which is SO uncomfortable right now.  It really hurts my hips and my belly and ribs.  Why she is back-up, hands-and-feet down, I can't understand.  She likes that position!  I thought about trying another chiro, but we have so much going on right now with DD's troubles at school, my working at DS's co-op, both kids being sick, etc., that it is just an incredible amount of work scheduling things.  Just going to weekly OB appointments has been hard on us, and I've had to juggle stuff.  We have a lot of friends that I would ask for small favors, but not that many that could fit two more carseats in their cars, etc., to help us out with this kind of stuff. 

 

I'm looking forward to smelling that sweet baby smell and meeting this little one on Thursday.  And getting my tubes tied.  I can't imagine trying to get someone to stay with THREE kids so I could have a fourth!  Maybe if we lived closer to family or something.  But we're so far away.

 

Oops:

I totally get it..  6w feels really short.  I hope you have her tonight!

Maternity leave in the US is lame! I read that we are on the bottom 3 for leave with like New Guinea or something. Crazy. The worst thing is that when I left Thursday I said bye to my boss and that I'd see him after a while. He said "yeah, see you in a couple weeks. Well maybe even a month, huh"? I thought he was kidding so I laughed a bit as I was walking out. Then I realized he was serious. Seriously clueless! My HR manager knows I'm taking 12w so I'm going to ask her to pass the message along to him. It's a bummer because I was going to see if I could take the extra time I'm missing with baby off since it's all unpaid leave anyway. Now I'm feeling like I shouldn't ask if he expected me back in a few weeks. I haven't even had the baby yet! Also, last Thursday when he said that his wife was 2w post pardum and he wastelling me how she was still having such a hard time healing and such. WTH?

This is exactly how I feel.  Although I have not practised my hypnobirthing at all, or even checked to see if my TENS machine works, so I should probably ask baby to wait at least another week!

 

post #177 of 389

Maternity leave in the US is totally shameful. It is really easy to be pregnant being a SAHM, and then of course being a SAHM with a new baby is far less stressful than having to immediately start thinking about returning to work. I can't imagine how difficult that must be. I have much respect for WOHMs, I think that's a much harder job than mine.

 

Lyss- I'm actually not stressed that she is coming, rather I'm stressed that she chose to come only 5 days before I am due. She is the support person for my girls during the birth, so I want her here for the birth! kwim? I have no reason to think I'll go early, but still, #3! 5 days seems like cutting it a bit close!

 

We have a difficult time being comfortable with childcare too. I much prefer having close friends or family with them, and we have only been here for about a year so we are just starting to make those types of connections. I don't honestly know that we will make many, since we are only here for a few years. It's frustrating. I'm glad you are okay with your friend taking your kids ultimately, though. And it's great that dh is staying with you. The nurses were helpful after my c/s, but not that helpful, I needed a person there full time.

 

Stelly- you have TENS?! What's that like in labor? I've never actually met a person who used it!

post #178 of 389

this is how hormonal I am, we were watching the Sesame Street 20 year anniversary special on Netflix and they were talking about Mr. Hooper dying, and I started crying. 

post #179 of 389

Had my 38w appointment yesterday and after feeling the baby the MW said she would not be surprised if baby was about 8 pounds at this point!!   DD was born around her DD at 7lb 7 oz so it seems like a bigger baby for me this time around!  DDs delivery was pretty fast, not much pushing, so I feel confident my body can handle a bigger baby but I was not really expected that number.

 

Up until that moment I have figured I will go overdue (baby still high, no signs of labor any time soon) and I was perfectly fine with that, I have not felt anxious at all about getting things going.... within about 2 minutes of leaving the MW office I switching to thinking about what things I could do to help get things going.  I don't really want to have the baby now... and had a good talk with myself and imagined what I would say to me if I posted on here about starting to get worried and wanting to speed things up at this point.

 

1) only 38w.... chill out.... a lot can happen in 2 weeks

2) Feeling baby size from the outside is not an exact science

3) Even if baby is 8 pounds now, that's fine... I delivered my first fairly easily and my body can deliver a 9 pound + baby.  Have confidence.

4) First babe I had zero signs of labor, she had not dropped, and I ended up with PROM and pit and I know for a fact my body can go from 1cm dialated to birthing a baby in just a few hours.  I also doing want pit again if possible, let my body get ready on its own this time.

5) repeat #1

 

------------

Lyss - glad to hear she has agreed that if the other kids are sick she won't take your kids there.  You really really don't need that. I agree that I can't imagine making plans like that without asking you first.

 

I expect to see more babies soon - good luck to you all!  

 

 

 

 

I am going to try to increase my walking and make sure I am doing my yoga etc (I have been bad about it the last few weeks).  I figure it is not only healthy but in my head I will feel like I am doing things to encourage baby to drop and my body to get ready for labor - but still just encouraging it to get to that point when its ready and now before.

 

It is hard to get good walking in here though, a snowy winter in MN = lots of wet/icy/snowy sidewalks.

Wow. There's so much going on. Even babies! Finally! We've just been busy sorting out the car stuff. It's almost all taken care of but all of the driving and skipping naps have left DD and me exhausted. I'm 38 weeks today! This pregnancy just flew by! I have a MW appt today and an appt. with a family Dr. tomorrow. We don't have anything on Friday so it's nice we won't have to run around. My mom and dad should be here next Friday.

 

Hugs, Lyss. I hope everything gets sorted. You'll be holding your sweet babe soon!
