Who else is due at the end of June? - Page 2

post #21 of 303

I'm due the 19th, but given my nine day late baby, I'm worried I'll go late again.  It's not fun going late!!!  I'm surprised we haven't seen any births yet on the board.  Usually there seems to always be one or two that end up going a little early!

post #22 of 303

I'm due the 29th!   My original due date was 6/23, but it was pushed back after a dating US.  I keep trying to convince LO to move out early, but she doesn't seem interested.  :)  Part of me wants her to be early - I'm definitely ready to be not-pregnant any more, and I think it would be kind of cute if she were born on our anniversary, the 21st.  But then I think it might not be so cool to share our anniversary.  Hard to justify going out for a romantic dinner on our kid's birthday, right? 

post #23 of 303

I'm due the 24th!  It's my third, so I am hoping I may not go overdue this time!

post #24 of 303

yeah, I saw that thread where everyone was all "I'll be full-term in 5 days!" and I'm definitely not there either. EDD should be June 21 or 22. But she'll come when she comes. As long as she waits to come IN June I'm happy (want to finish up clinicals). Ideally I'd like to make it to graduation but if I don't, oh well.

post #25 of 303

We are June 24 over here :) This is my first, so I have no idea about early, late, or on time. I hadn't considered the full moon, but that would be lovely!

post #26 of 303

I'm due June 23. I went late with my two babies before so I have it in my head that we will have an extra week despite that my OB thinks I will come early. We will see who is right. ; )

I'm due June 22nd but my first was born 3 weeks early and was perfectly ready to be born, not on the small side even...so I say baby is coming sometime in June...
post #28 of 303

Just checking in, how are all the late June mamas feeling?

 

I'll be 37 weeks tomorrow and feeling equal parts unprepared and welcoming of this new little one. I know there are things yet to be done, but I also feel like any time he/she wants to show up at this point is fine with me. I'd prefer it to be after my mom gets into town on the 14th though, because we could really use the help with my daughter during and after the birth. 

 

All is well otherwise though, measuring right on, midwife predicted this babe would be about the same size as my daughter was (7 and a half pounds) and next week I'll hear about the GBS test. 

 

Yesterday I had an hour of contractions that were 3-4 minutes apart, and they felt like "real" contractions more than the braxton-hicks warm-ups of the past few months. Cramping and tightening and cervical pressure and all. They were enough to get my attention and look at the clock anyway! Then I layed down and had some water and they went away, but it was a nice little reminder of what lies ahead, and actually got me excited about this labor. I feel ready. 

 

 

post #29 of 303

I've been having more bh this week. I'd had really none up until this point and none with DS. It makes me wonder if I'll be going less over than I did with him. I'm feeling big and clutzy and the heat is bothering me more (90s this week). I'm soaking up these last days as a mama of just one, though, making time to do all sorts of fun stuff with DS. We went to the pool last night and it felt so good to be in the water.

 

I had my GBS last week. I assume I'll hear back next week? Hmmm.

 

We have almost everything on the to do list checked off. DH needs to move some furniture around and wants to organize the basement first. We'll see if it actually gets done before my birthing time. Hypnobabies is still going well. I met with my birth photographer and I'm all set with that.

 

Many people on my birth team, my doula, and several people I have lined up for care for DS, have upcoming travel dates. I'm a little nervous about how all of that is going to work out. I'm trying to put my energy into thinking positive, but I need to line up a few more back ups of back ups to feel totally comfortable.

post #30 of 303

I had my 36 week appt. Friday. I'll be 37 weeks tomorrow. Baby is head down. Butt is against my tummy usually, so I"m taking that as a good sign that baby will be anterior - oh I hope I hope! I had my GBS test - I'll get the results next week sometime. I did a bunch of prevention, so I'm really hoping that it helped! I've got much of my home birth supply basket put together. There's still some things that need to be thrown in there. My mom is going to grab a few things for me. I still need to find something to wear. I found some sleep nursing bras and will wear one under some sort of sleep shirt/ night gown so that I can strip that off and just wear the bra if I get hot. I think I'm going to put a stitch in it though as it's a wrap style and I could see my boob falling right out of it and I'm trying to retain some shred of modesty since I"m having like a zillion people at my home birth. Not really, but it just feels that way since DH and I were the only ones at the birth of my DS. We're having my close friend photograph, my mom will be there as support for our DS, and my SIL will be there as additional support and to help with anything else that's needed, and then of course the midwife and her assistant. I keep joking that I should get party hats and favor bags!

 

Anyways, how is everyone feeling? I actually have been feeling great this past week. I am now doing weekly chiro visits and I really think this is helping. Plus I've gotten a few things scrubbed and cleaned and even though it's taken a considerable amount of physical effort I feel like I have felt so much better getting some things on my list done. My newborn diapers are prepped and ready to go, my mama cloth is out and ready to go for postpartum. We're doing our full run through of the birth pool tonight. We've done a small run through where we did not fill the pool all the way. I'm kind of excited actually. I want to get in the pool and relax! I've scrubbed my daycare room (which is where the birth will take place). My big project for today is going to be putting laundry away and hopefully getting the cosleeper up in the bedroom. We'll see.

 

Anyways, on to impending labor signs. Eh - not much going on here. I've had a few BH. I didn't realize that's what they were at first because I thought BH was going to be painful. It hasn't been thus far. But based on everyone's description, I'm pretty sure that's what it is. It actually feels kind of nice - I don't know - exciting to me for some reason. I guess exciting to know that something is going on that is prepping my body for labor even if that's it!

 

Mentally I'm in a great place for labor. I don't know if it's all the hypnobabies affirmations I've been listening to or what, but I feel like I've gone from apprehensively wanting home birth to feeling like "I'm woman. Watch me birth at home!" I don't feel afraid at all, which given how traumatized I felt after my DS's intervention heavy hospital birth is nothing short of miraculous. I'm just excited really and that's about all I feel. I'm loving the hypnobabies - still can't stay still and spend most practices in center as opposed to off, but just going with it and I know that it'll help when I need it to!

 

As far as being early or late. My DS was induced at four days "late". DS and my body were nowhere near ready. I think I would have gone another week if left to birth on my own. However, he was posterior and I know that can cause labor to start later than it otherwise would. So I don't know if going late is my natural pattern or if I might end up going earlier and/or on time since this baby is anterior (I'm thinking positively here).I'm really hoping for a June baby because my brother's birthday is July 3rd. DS is the 12th. Mine is the 14th and my nephews is the 16th. I'd kind of like for this LO to have a June birthday, but eh - not up to me now is it?

 

Gah - I kind of wrote a book. I have such a bad habit of doing that at times! 

 

Bald Bull's Mama - I hope we both get negatives on our GBS tests. On a different note, I'm actually going to try to make it to the CP group meeting in June since DS doesn't have tumbling. I think the topic would be a great one - especially if I can get DH to come with me. So if you'll be there I'd love to say hey in person!

 

BarefootinBrooklyn - Also hoping for a negative GBS test for you as well! Also, just think those contractions that felt real might have been doing part of your labor, so maybe your cervix will have less work to do by the time you get to your birthing day!

post #31 of 303

I'm due the 21st, my sons b day is the 22nd so I'm wondering if I'll still be pregnant on the 25th when we have his party....lol.gif It's really hard to plan knowing I might have a newborn or be miserable and useless.  I'm having a lot of loose bowels (tmi) Lots of bh contx and lots of cervix pinches. I'm not sure what that's all about but it sure gets my attention! I am tired but am trying to plan my son a super duper 4th bday party since from now on he and baby will likely have combined parties. I'm gbs - and got all my supplies for birth. I've been trying to keep my house pretty clean so when the moment comes it will be tidy. REally just staying busy and hoping the time passes quickly Going to do a belly cast today. It was 105 degrees here last weekend! I don't feel too bad really just kind of wiped out and well grumpy. Hope all the other late june mamas are doing good!

post #32 of 303

swimming duck your post reminded me to say that with my 1st I had a scheduled c section on his due date and my 2nd had a membrane sweep @ 39 weeks I was dialated to a 3 , I have NO CLUE what my body does without interventions! Also hoping my sister can come over for the birth (she has 4 kids and it will greatly depend on if her hubby is at work or not) I lost both of my parents recently and really would love to have her here for support and photography. I have a friend who has volunteered but....long story short she is very much an attention hog and I'm afraid I'll be mean to her if she tries to turn everything into an ''all about her life'' type of thing! I'm just not sure how I'm going to react to people and I'd rather have my sister here if possible she's had 4 births 3 unmedicated so I know she can sympathize and be supportive. My friend on the other hand has no kiddos. She is sad that she cannot have kids and I'm sad for her I just don't want to cause and problems in our friendship. =)

 We didn't buy a pool which in some ways kind of bothers me The main reason we didn't is hubby wasn't 100% sold on staying home until very recently. There is a super freestanding birth center owned by the midwives I'm using about 30 minutes away. So, we've been back and forth on either going there or staying here the entire pregnancy. They have a really nice jet tub that could cause me to migrate there lol! I will make do with the bathtub if I need/ want to use it . I'm still open to a tiny chance that we may end up at the birth center just depending on how things go but I'm pretty sure we are staying right here. It's easier for my sister my kids and everyone else really. SO now I wrote a book.... Also NO mucus plug lost at all yet that I've noticed, just a little bit of creamy cm. By now last time I had been loosing globs. I know it's not a sure sign for all women but I'm wondering if that means I'm still closed. I don't think we are going to do any checks unless I get desperate wanting to know something...So far my midwife hasn't had me remove my pants at all and that's been super! I did my own gbs swab and haven't had any checks.

I think you're wise to go with your gut feeling as far as your friend is concerned. Better to not even go there if it could possibly cause major issues and/or ruin a friendship. Not all friends are great for all things! I have a few friends that I adore that I wouldn't want within 10 miles of me while birthing! 

 

My midwife has also been awesome - no exams. I also did my own gbs swab. I LOVE it - this is soooo not what I had last time around. I HATE HATE HATE internal exams. I seriously think I was traumatized last time as I stopped wearing tampons after that because I now have a mental block around having things shoved up my vag. But I did shove garlic up there to try to prevent GBS - so go figure because that makes no sense! But anyways, it's freaking awesome to go through pregnancy without all of those invasive exams, isn't it?

Hello late-Juners.  I'm glad to hear everyone is doing well.  This past week I've been feeling pretty good, the week before, though, I thought that there was no way I was going to make it to the end.  Mentally, I was having a really hard time.  But, I've sort of pulled it together this past week.  Thank goodness. 

 

I'll be 37 weeks tomorrow and am hoping to make it at least a couple of more weeks so that I can get a couple more weeks of work in and also spend that time with DS.  Everything around the house is ready, and it's nice to sort of just chill.  I had my GBS test last week - I swabbed myself too - and will get the results on Tuesday.  I was + with DS and am hoping not to be this time around.  I'm going to a hospital, but it is very natural childbirth friendly and am planning a water birth. 

 

Anyway, just getting ready and really excited.  Can't wait to hold my sweet, baby girl.

post #35 of 303

I'm due the 23rd or the 26th, either way it's late June, and quite possibly July. I'm hoping for a June birth though, dd was born in June so I'm partial, and impatient. ;)

post #36 of 303

Count me in on the late June-ers.  My due date is the 30th.....and really hoping to go late, still trying to build a house!!!!

post #37 of 303

Im due 6/30-7/1 and feeling impatient!

My ds was a couple of days early and my dd was born on the due date,, so I doubt I'll be having the baby after the dd.. Hoping really that it'll be a bit early but 

time will tell..

I am not at all prepared with things that I will need for the birth so I guess I better get moving :) 

 

Wishing all the mama's here a beautiful birth!!!!!

 

Goddess Bless 

post #38 of 303

Officially due the 25th but I think I will go sometime a few days before. That seems to be my pattern anyways. Up until last week I was fine with waiting and feeling patient but the switch has been flipped and I am SO ready to have this little one! It's so hard being so ready and knowing there are still weeks to go! I have plenty of BH. I'm only 1cm dilated/still thick/cervix still very posterior. I went ahead and had my midwife check me last week since I had my pants off anyway for the GBS test. lol.gif I think I'm only dilated a smidge because this is baby #3 and not because anything is actually happening yet.  

post #39 of 303

Melanie, I'm due 25th as well and was feeling quite Zen as well until the calendar said "June" and I was like hey...that's when I am DUE! I've always been 'due' in the first part of the month with previous pregnancies, so mentally I just think the 'month' I am due. But now...it seems like I should have been thinking July ;) LOL  I had my GBS last week too and will get results on Tuesday at my appointment. I also think I'll go around the 18-22 as that's my 'usual' and this being 5th pregnancy/6th baby, I'm getting used to 'usual' LOL  

 

I am excited for babe, but not yet 'ready' for him to come, so it's okay if he stays in through next weekend! Anytime after the 14th is fine with me! I'm having a garage sale on the 11th, so I need to get through that and also some other things going on with my kids activities and such to make it through. Then we'll have a relatively calm summer to enjoy the new babe.

post #40 of 303

I'm about ready to get this baby out. I'll be 38 wks on Tuesday. Mostly I am just uncomfortable--standing for too long, or sitting for too long, is no fun, and I am still trying to work some days. (At this point I can work basically as much or as little as I want, by shift.) No contractions but some BH. I have no sense of how long this pregnancy will last so I am kind of walking around going "I could go any time but then again maybe not" and not committing to anything more than 3-4 days in advance. It is weird that one of my grandmothers had 3 premature babies and the other had 1 prematurely; her other was born 9 days before the due date; my mom had us both before our due dates too (though not a lot before). So if I make it to or past my due date I will not be following in the footsteps of my foremothers.
