Anyone else feel like baby is NEVER going to come? - Page 2

post #21 of 36

Today I am 38w3d and though I would like to go into labor ASAP I also want q big healthy baby and have to remind myself that it will come when ready. I have been exhausted recently though, probably because I have been sewing and cooking up a storm. The freezer is WAY stocked. I have been having more and stronger BH contractions and they have changed to being lower in my uterus. I also have more achy, menstrual type cramps. My hips are killing me though, and that in addition to peeing at least every 2 hours at night do make one anxious for the end. Plus I feel every so puffy, nothing fits and my boobs have grown out of all but one bra...

 

Almost there though! I am sure some of you fine ladies have gone into labor now!

I feel you there I am 38w and feel exactly the same way you do. Same signs, I to am hoping to go soon. My doc sent a induction date of th 25th because baby is showing signs of being big like my first who was 9.6lbs I am hoping to go on my own without having to be induced.

My mom has also gotten the idea in her head that I have to "decide on whether to get a c section" ASAP and has been calling other family members and getting them all worried. I think that my mom means well, but she loves drama and is willing to spin some wild stories in order to get something she wants (attention, sympathy, access to me while I am giving birth).

 

I'm currently just trying to cocoon myself with happy and relaxing thoughts!

 

 

 

 

 


I think ignoring other's needs during these last days and during our labors is the best thing to do. But it is hard. I have slipped and let it be known to my sister that I may not call anyone until after the baby is born. I don't think she plans to be at the hospital, but my grandma does and she is the biggest pain. She literally convinced the nurses to let her and my aunt stay when my niece was born. And who wants to cause a scene when your sister is about to give birth kwim? So I  told my sister I don't even want gma at the hospital because it going to stress me out to have to kick her out of my room as I don't want to hurt her feelings, so go back around the drawing board of it is easier just to not let anyone know. And I love my grandma, it is just that I don't think her presence will help my birthing process and if there is one time to be selfish, it is while you are giving birth imo.

 

As for being pregnant forever, yes I feel that way, I so hope I have dd before 41 weeks as that is when NST start and I will be getting my membranes stripped, would love to to already have a baby in my arms rather than have to do the extra tests and measures. But we'll just have to wait and see. Pregnancy isn't really bothering me, I can last a couple more weeks okay i suppose, lol but I know she will eventually be evicted if she doesn't come out on her own, just hoping she gets to choose her birthday, that is all.

Still waiting here.  My EDD is tomorrow.  I really had hopes that full moon might do something...  I thought I was having contractions yesterday morning for awhile but they stopped when I took a nap.  Nothing today.  It is so hard to be patient at this point.  May 4th will be 42 weeks according to my calculations, my MWs have me as 2 days later so that is May 6th.  I'm trying to come up with a gameplan of what I'm going to do if I get to May still pregnant.  I'll probably try acupuncture or something like that first.

 

My FB status today was "I really wish I was one of the women who could walk into the OB and say "I'm tired of being pregnant, induce me please.""

I am feeling the same way.  10 days past my edd today and so tired I can barely function.

I feel for you mama.  How long will your mw or ob 'let you go'? 

 

It doesn't help that I asked my SIL who is due May 9th if anything is happening and she's 4.5cm dialated and 80% effaced.  What the heck?  Why didn't I get any easy birthing genes?  Her DS came 2 weeks early after an easy and uneventful labor.

post #27 of 36

Yep, I'm here too. EDD was yesterday. The daily check-in phone calls started a couple days ago. Everything is ready for our homebirth, just gotta wait now. It's so hard to tell my daughters that they can't make any definite plans with their friends, just in case. 

 

I'm just tired of this. All of my babies have been late. I know the baby will come when he's ready, I just wish I knew what date he has in mind! :)

 

Oh well, hugs to everyone and I hope we all have our babies soon.

post #28 of 36

I'm starting to feel this way myself. My EDD is today. I've been having ctx and crampiness and extra BMs (though not loose) for a week and a half now. A week ago thursday I was sure I was going to have the baby within the next day but nothing. This was super hard for me to adjust to the idea that the baby wasn't on its way just then. With both my others, once ctx started, the baby was here inside of 24 hours. This drawn out, prodromal-esque thing is new to me. And it sucks. I really feel for you ladies who do this for weeks and weeks. I am feeling thankful that at most I have another 10-14 days of this.

I'm 40w4d today and feeling very depressed.  My SIL who was due May 9th is at the hospital having her baby already.  When DH told me that a couple hours ago I burst into tears.  I'm facing induction next weekend which I do not want.  But half of me wants to just drink the damned castor oil now and get this whole thing over with. 

post #30 of 36

You can definitely add me in this group.  I've had practice labour for over two weeks now.  So many false starts have made me feel like this baby will never leave my belly.  Well I guess he'll get evicted in a week anyway, but it still feels like this pregnancy is never going to end.  I'll be 41 weeks tomorrow.


 

post #31 of 36

I am so ready to be done.  Plus it's been soooo hot the last few weeks and it makes me even more uncomfortable.  My EDD is the 29th so I'm hoping she's born sometime this week.  Plus I'm tired of working too.

post #32 of 36

uh yeah, i am ready to be done, mainly because i do not want to have to be induced at the end of this week. 40+5 today and no sign of baby...I know there is an end in sight but i really want dd to come on her own and don't want to have to labor the entire time in the hospital which is what will happen if she doesn't come by thursday.

 

post #33 of 36

uh, yea! 42 weeks today and I'm now positive that I'm going to be the first person to ever just stay pregnant FOREVER! This is never going to end....

post #34 of 36

Depending on the EDD used, I am anywhere from 41w2d today to 42w. I have been having a lot of timeable contractions since Tuesday, and the ones today were harder to ignore, but they always fizzle out. :( At least my midwife hasn't put any kind of "deadline" pressure on me. Even though I didn't stay pregnant forever with my last one, I still can't shake the feeling that this baby has no intention of coming out, lol. Still hoping for an April baby... I have until Saturday. :)

post #35 of 36

damn.... just typed up a LONNNNNNG message and it got deleted. crapppp. I'm soooo not typing it out again. lol. Basically. 42 weeks. had a biophysical profile this morning which  came back perfect. I'm good to stay pregnant another week at this point. MW appt Wednesday but they won't do any exams or anything, just talk and check HR. Today's my anniversary but DH has to work all day, has class from 6-10pm and then has to stay up all night studying for a test tomorrow morning. His finals start next week and still no baby. yea, that was basically it. Except I was alot more cheery and positive the first time. I just got hit with the grumpies when this thing erased. lol. Oh well, you get the picture. :-)

I feel the same way.  Only 41 weeks pregnant but I've been expecting this baby to arrive anytime since 37 weeks.  I have practice labour just about every day, painful contractions that never go anywhere, or get any worse.  I never had this with my previous kids, so it's been very annoying.  I'm going to have my midwife break my water at home on Friday if no baby by then probably.
