Who else is due at the end of June? - Page 8

post #141 of 303

My baby is here! 

 

Born at 12:56 a.m. ON his due date! My longest pregnancy ever, but I still have technically NEVER gone overdue! LOL

 

Also almost a full pound heavier than my heaviest baby at 9 lbs 4 oz. and just shy of a 15" head. OMG!

Me too.  Exactly.  I was so lazy yesterday... my mom came over in the afternoon and I took a long nap, then when DH came home I wanted another one!  Went to the snack store for popcorn and ice cream and felt better though :)  It's kind of fun to be able to answer "when are you due?" from random strangers with "any time now" or "tomorrow" and watch them back away warily.  Mwa haha.

Yeah. I haven't been to church in awhile since I've been so third trimester blahish, but I thought it might be fun to push myself to go tomorrow since it's my EDD. It would be fun to see the look on people's faces when they ask, "So when are you do?" and I reply with "Today." Although, I'm kind of afraid that I'll then have to endure "When are they going to take the baby?" type comments. shake.gif

People are so scared of me now when I answer honestly that I just give the standard "any day now". If I tell them the truth (that I was due 2 weeks ago) they look at me as if I'm going to explode amniotic fluid all over them!

I meant "YOUR" big squishy...not you. shy.gif

post #149 of 303

Just wanted to pop in and say I had my baby- on the morning after my due date. She's doing great. 9 lbs 21 inches long. Big noggin which explained why pushing took forever

! lol.gif No pain meds. Water broke, then contractions started- total labor time 4 hours 45 minutes!  I birthed in the tub for a while which was awesome... until I got cold. Better go for now. She's looking for milk!

Congratulations Melanie!

post #151 of 303

Who's left standing here? Anyone? Bueller? Bueller? Bueller? 

 

We know that each day is bringing us closer to our babies - let's hold onto that thought! Yesterday was a hellishly emotional day for me. I don't know if it's because it was my EDD or not, but I was weepy all day long. Every little thing made me cry and every thing pissed me off. DH and I fought horribly all day long. I admit that I'm struggling with depression and self-pity today. I really wanted to have a baby over the weekend so that I wouldn't have to work this week. I'm sure I'll be fine once the kiddos are here, but I'm definitely feeling a bit sorry for myself right now.

 

Anyways, how is everyone else holding out?

post #152 of 303

I'm still here!  My due date was Friday.  The last two nights I have had contractions 10-20 minutes apart for a good 6 hour stretch...from about midnight to 6am or so.  They go away as soon as the sun comes up!  I'm crampy right now, but not having contractions...just overall crampy and my lower back hurts.  I keep feeling twinges of pain in my cervix, so I assume it's dilating.  I sure hope I go into labor today or tonight!

post #153 of 303

I'm here too!  Not due until Thursday.  And I waver from YES, let's have this baby NOW...to...well, another week isn't so bad.  

I'll join you on the emotional roller coaster though.  I feel a little loopy!  

But yes, pretty soon we will be snuggling our little babies!

 

 

 

Congrats Melanie!! Glad you two are doing well!

post #154 of 303

I'm here!  Every day ratchets my stress level up another notch.  Still having contractions at night, pretty much exactly like Rach03 described!  (And BTW, good luck!  I hope your labor starts soon!)  I try to get out and walk around as much as possible, but every time some random stranger asks me when I'm due I want to tear my hair out.  The other day I went off on a tirade about how people confuse being friendly with being nosy, and holding a woman hostage while you pester her with questions about her personal life is NOT friendliness, and can I please just have my receipt so I can go?  My DH seems to find my snapishness hilarious, which I guess is good, but I doubt anyone else does.  Anyone know where I can buy a shirt that says "Warning, Not Fit For Human Company"? 

post #155 of 303

I'm still here too.  My due date is on Thursday, so Janae, we can have a race!  Last night, the baby was very active, and I think I was having some super Braxton-Hicks.  I have also had crampy days, but other than that, things still seem to be normal.  I am getting excited, but not quite in a hurry yet.  Part of me is expecting that baby will come late.  We'll see!

post #156 of 303

I have not had any pressure waves yet (aka contractions) except for maybe a random one or two total. I feel like I need to listen to my hypnobabies affirmations (I've missed a few days) as it definitely seems that I'm in a poor mood about it all.I feel like "What if my body really isn't going to do this on its own?" That was the lie I bought into with DS and caused me to allow myself to be induced at EDD+4. On the other hand though, I could imagine that it must be very frustrating for those of you that have had ongoing pressure waves on a nightly basis only to have them fizzle out and not be the "real deal". So I guess if my body's going to wait to have any kind of real sign of progress, I'm okay with my body just doing everything all at once. 

 

Nikie - I completely get what you're saying. I don't mind so much the when are you due question, but when people go much past that I get irritated. 

 

I've actually not gone to church for the longest time.Part of it is that I just don't want to hear comments and/or let people know that we'll be waiting for baby to come on his/her own as opposed to having the doctor "take the baby."

 

Gah - just got off the phone with my mother who called to check and see how I'm doing. Is it terrible that this annoys me to no end? Not just that but she goes on, "Well, no twinges anywhere or back pain or anything?" to which I replied with a very pissy sounding "Nope. Nothing going on." My bad attitude must have come across because at the end of the conversation she informed me, "Well, I won't call again to check up on you. I'll just wait for you to call me." 

 

Anyways, physically I wish I could tune out because I tend to become hyperfocused on every little twinge hoping that it's the start of something more. All I have so far is twinges, a crampy/bloaty feeling lower down, and really achy legs and lower back. So I'm miserable with no sign of real progress. Fantastic! 

post #157 of 303

I'm still here. Due today! I am miserable. I have PUPPP really bad and it's driving me nuts.

 

I know exactly how you feel swimmingduck :hug

post #158 of 303

Ha, Bueller!!!

 

I'm definitely still here as well. I'm officially a 10 month mama - I was due June 12/13 and am not inducing, medically or naturally.

 

Joanna in PA - I'm in the same exact boat as you in terms of what's going on with my body - have had a few crampy days but not consistently. Lots of BH. I would almost rather have fizzly contractions, just to know my body is doing something! Baby still moving around lots and I have tons of resources with evidence that points toward patience and against induction (if anyone wants any let me know!) so at least I'm not worried intellectually. Emotionally is another thing.

Swimming-duck, I hear you. I felt terrible the other day when my mom (ex-midwife and blessed non-harrasser) told me my dad had phoned her to ask how I was (they're long divorced). He said, "I'm not supposed to phone her but just want to know what's going on". Made me cry as the last time I spoke to him I was a real grump.

 

Anyway its funny how many people think we must have had the baby and just not told them. I posted this note on my facebook today which I hope will quell the demands for updates:

 

Dear Friends and Family

 

We have not had our baby yet. The baby refuses to tell us what his/her plans are so we are in the dark too and it is hard! We won't be inducing as long as all is well, which it is, so we don't know when it will happen. We promise to make an announcement here the moment the babe is earthside. I am in hiding but it's only because I am a tired, grumpy bump on a log. Otherwise I feel well and love you all very much.  

 

Love, us

 

Hopefully this doesn't sound too bitchy?

I think it's great, not the least bit bitchy.  I know people are just thinking of us and wanting to wish us well, but the texting and phone calls are waaaaay annoying already and I'm only a couple days past EDD.  I am trying to settle in for what may be a much longer haul, and it doesn't help to have people calling and unsettling me all the time!  Yesterday I answered a call from my mom with "no, I'm not having a baby right now."  She paused for a second and said, "that's good to know, but it's not why I called..." and proceeded to tell me a collection of tiny details from her day.  I know she's just excited, but really!  She's the one who's going to be with DS during the birth, how would it even be possible for me not to call her when something happens?  Sheesh.

Hahaha...I had to laugh because my dad (mom and dad long divorced) called me yesterday and said, "Did you have her yet?" and totally meant it.  It wasn't a teasing "have you had her" it was a serious question.  I was thinking...really?  You think we would have had her a day or two ago and just not called?  LOL!  And I think your FB post is perfect, not bitchy at all.

 

 

I am still having contractions, they are just far apart.  I just had one just now, and my last one was about 30 minutes ago.  It's so weird to me that I'm having them all night long and then nothing during the day when I'm up and moving!
