I'm another 4/11 mama:). I know there were a LOT of us due that day!
Anyone else not in labour? - Page 3
Ha! That IS funny. My DS was 5/6/09 and it looks like you had your last LO in 4/09. We have alot in common. :-)
I've been told several different EDD and they are all this week...4-5, 4-9, 4-11. Soooooooooo im just wondering and waiting! I really dont want to go much longer as my 3rd baby was 2 weeks early and was 8+3 and my last baby was right on the due date and was 10+2. i just am a bit scared to have another 10pound baby!
LOL, I'm sure I won't be first. But, baby seems to be back to anterior which is good. We did the rebozo for a few minutes and I'm not sure if that did it or if he turned before. I'm just trying to encourage him/her to stay in that position now at least for the evening. Granted, I am only 39w so baby just might need more time. But, I do feel this baby is big. DS was 9lbs 2oz at 38w3d (OR, 39w3d at the most) so I feel this baby will be close to that weight. Part of me in being a VBAC wants the same size or bigger just to stick it to anyone who secretly things big babies can't be birthed.
Let's both go into labor tonight then and we can keep up a good track record together hehe.
I'm due on the 12th. I am feeling way more prepared to have a baby these past few days but I'm still hoping for 40+ weeks. I'd like to go at least until the 15th because then my whole birth "team" will be here. Baby is still moving like crazy - going from left to right and I still feel very comfortable during the day and still sleep well in the AM. Sleeping at night isn't great but it's been that way for a while.
I'm due the 13th - so very close to the 11th lol. Lots of early labor but nothing drastic enough to bring baby yet. Been happening for 2/2.5 weeks now. Not sure I'll notice the difference between the early stuff and when it turns into active! we shall see though!
Would love to send some baby labor dust and would love some in return
Ok. Can intestinal cramping be contractions? I feel terrible right now - very sore 'roids/bottom and a lot of intestinal cramping and diarrhea. I never get intestinal bugs. What is this? I want it to go away or else be real labor! I had chicken, sweet potatoes and mushrooms for dinner. Now I have to go to the bathroom again and am afraid of the pain that will ensue as a result of these loose BMs. Sorry, tmi. This is day 4 of all of this but it's especially bad tonight.
I've had lots of false labor. Saturday was my last night working and I was convinced I was in labor the whole night. Once I got in the car to go home the contractions died out and by the time I got to bed they were done. This is the third time I've had consistent contractions for over 4 hours and then they stop. I guess it's a good thing because I'm battling a sinus infection right now.
I just hope the baby comes before next Tuesday. My mother and sister are coming to visit and I really don't want to deal with labor while my mother is here.
same here! except i dreamed that the baby had turned breech and i was starting labor. i was frantically trying to text the midwife, but my fingers weren't working well. i finally gave up and tried to call her, but i couldn't figure out the phone at all. and then crazy dream stuff started happening. the baby was moving a LOT before i went to sleep last night, so i think my fear that the baby is going to be posterior is getting to me
count me in on the labor dreams. But I have them EVERY NIGHT! Literally every single night I dream that I'm in labor and that my water broke or I"m having contractions, etc. Then I wake up to be profoundly disappointed! It's HORRIBLE!!!! lol. I think I have contractions alot in my sleep and this is what's causing it. Like I think they're just not bad enough to wake me up but enough that subconsciously my body knows they're happening. When I wake up to go to the bathroom at night I feel them (and am disappointed that my dreams earlier int he night weren't real) but they're not bad enough to keep me from falling back asleep. *sigh* oh well.
As for size of the baby... I'm actually on the other end of that. DD was 7lbs 5oz at 12 days overdue. DS was only 5lbs 9oz but was born at 35 weeks. I have no idea what to expect from this one since all babies are different, but I'd guess 7.5 lbs or so. Of course now that I say this a whopping 10lber is gonna come flyin outta there. haha! And Cook- I hear you on the "stick it to them" with the big baby thing. :-) I had 2 csections, both "failure to progress". I'm going to send my birth story with photos to my old OBs office and show them that if they "allowed me to progress" this is the result.
Can tonight be our night? please? P L E A S E???? haha.
Yep, there are enough of us due that no one will be left alone for a bit :)
Any day now is fine with me, I had a growth u/.s just to double check things b/c i am measuring 4 weeks behind, but everything looks great :).
Any day would be awesome. I'm getting so frustrated.
Everytime I walk anywhere or try to get chores done, I get contractions now. We walked to dinner last night, not far, and by the time we got back, I was sure that the baby was on his way. Nope, rested and they went away! I'm 38.5 weeks, I realize this can go on for another 3 or 4 weeks. How am I supposed to get anything done? Thankfully, I have 3 daughters aged 10, 7 and 5 and they do a lot around the house for me.
Good luck to everyone and crossing fingers that all of our babies make their way out soon!
LOL. I know- I've become more aware of everyone's due dates lately and know all of us that share a due date! :-) I think you and I are the only April 11th people left. Jennifer was one of us and I think Geist was too (not sure though) I would love to have a 4/4/11 baby but since it's 7pm here and I haven't had much of anything yet I doubt it'll happen today. Tomorrow would be just about perfect though! And 4/5 would be pretty cool since DS was 5/6 :-) We could keep that pattern going. Good luck to you! (But don't leave me!! lol. We have to have our babies on the same day so we can be due date buddies/bday buddies. HAHA)
ETA: oh , and VBAC buddies!!!!!!!!!!!!
Nope, i was due 4/3 and was sooo sure I would have a March baby since my son was due early Sept. and came 2 weeks early in August. Thanks for the congrats...we're slowly settling in and eventually I'll get around to writing down the birth story
my march baby is STILL staying put! i lost a little plug and some fluid yesterday and thought for sure i'd at least be having more contractions, if not full on labor. but nope, still here! at least i've figured out some stuff to do today. my son wants lasagna, and i think i'm going to put some shutterfly books together and work on the baby' baby book. so, at least there's something to *do* today. (besides worry about having no fluid :/)
