Who else is due at the end of June? - Page 13

post #241 of 303

 

I'm really working hard to fight off frustration. I just feel like my body is doing NOTHING. I mean, I do feel a bit of cramping now and then, especially when I listen to hypnobabies birthing tracks, but here I am at 41+4 and I've never had pressure waves to speak of. No sign that my body is warming up for the main event. I've started to have this fear that the induction happy OB I had with my DS whose internal exams were super rough somehow damaged my cervix and now I won't be able to dilate. I know that's likely not true, but it's just how I feel right now. I lose my home birth in 1 1/2 weeks, which is very far away but it keeps gradually getting closer and making me nervous. I'm pretty sure that I will be desperate enough to try castor oil very soon.

Have you had your mw check you just to see if you are dilating/effacing? Might be a comfort for you to know one way or the other what's going on. And like several other June mammas said - they felt great and then bam, contractions.

 

It's hard to keep the frustration at bay these last days. I'm starting to get really annoyed/scared baby won't come or wondering if something is wrong that's hindering labor (even though babe is still really active.) I've had the "I'm going to have a baby" intuition feeling  for 2 days now but where is baby??? Right now I just want to scream, which is totally not my personality!

 

 

I had DH break out the birth ball and have been doing circles on it. Tomorrow I'm going to do a sweep.

post #242 of 303

Haven't had a check on that. If I make it to Monday I have to do a BPP and I'm sure the doc will check then and/or I'll request it. If it appears that my cervix is ripening then I'll probably follow up with castor oil at home. But from what I understand of castor oil it won't work if my cervix isn't ready and will just give me all of the miserable side-effects. So I don't know that I want to try it if I find out that my cervix isn't dilated or effaced at all. I think I've had enough crampiness that I have to be ripening somewhat, but other times I feel like nothing is happening. So I kind of oscillate back and forth between feeling dejected and feeling hopeful. I had the day off of work today and I think it helped to be able to relax. Hubby and I did a fear release session of hypnobabies and went through a hypnobabies script with me today. It's the first one he's done with me and that made me feel pretty relaxed and calm to finally connect with him on the hypnobabies. So maybe that was a sub-conscious hang-up. Now that it's almost Friday I guess I'm wanting birthing to hold off until tomorrow evening so that I can get one last full paycheck for daycare before starting maternity leave. We could really use the money right now.

 

Klynne - I hope the sweep works for you tomorrow! Good luck!

I wish I knew how I could send you the Hypnobabies Baby Come Out script but I'm not that savvy.

Awww...that's very sweet. I'm not that savvy either and I probably wouldn't figure out how to load it if it was sent anyways! As it is I'm using a borrowed ipod with the hypnobabies stuff loaded on and don't have the computer cord to load more stuff. If I did, I'd probably just download the mp3 from the site! Oh well - this baby is coming whether I have the Come Out script or not! I know I'm coming across as dejected and I am feeling that somewhat, but it was really nice to have the day off of work today. Tomorrow is my last day. I've decided to start maternity leave even though baby is not here yet since I'll be 42 weeks on Sunday and I can't see going another week anyways, so I went ahead and informed my daycare clients that tomorrow is my last workday until after maternity leave. I wonder if the break from work will be enough to let me really mentally and physically focus on getting baby here. I won't have to do a BPP until Monday (I still need to call and schedule - I'm secretly hoping that they won't be able to fit me in until Tuesday or Wednesday), so I feel like a lot could happen between now and then! My DS's birthday is July 12th and mine is July 14th. I wouldn't have thought since my LO had a DD of 6/26 that there was the possibility of anyone sharing a birthday, but who knows? It's kind of crazy.

 

Anyways, I'm going to relax in a nice warm bath and listen to the easy first stage script. I feel like that helps when I listen to it - like I feel my body wanting to birth when I listen to that. And then I'll probably fall asleep to Birthing Day affirmations. After my workday tomorrow I will get much more active about encouraging labor.

for whatever it's worth that script didn't make a difference for me - baby came when good and ready.

Well, I guess I feel better about not having it then. I am trying to remind myself that baby comes when good and ready. It'd be just as well. DS has developed a fever and NOW I'm starting to cramp a bit more - sharper. Don't know that there's anything regular or wave-like yet, but sharper. I'm going to take my bath and see how I feel after that.

I feel a bit dejected - and frustrated, and a little fearful. And all the txt's and calls! My goodness. This is pregnancy purgatory!

We had the same due date and though I really, really, wish you had gone into labor earlier I'm comforted to have a due-date buddy going through the same scenario (misery loves company? ;)).

 

41+4 going on 5. I had bloody show after dtd yesterday evening and kept having it until 3pm today. Cramping and strong bh's accompanying the bloody show and then what happened?? It all stopped. Ay Caramba! I've never had bloody show before active labor, this is all new territory!

 

Kawa - How long did you go over this time? I remember you saying that you usually went closer to 42 weeks, right?

41w4d which is the longest I'd been pregnant since 1994! It was terribly stressful. Not sure if the sweep and castor oil did a thing - didn't seem to at the time - but they were done one and two days before I woke up in labour.

Well the cramping and bloody show sounds very promising. I'm trying not to get my hopes sky high about being crampy tonight because there's nothing regular or wave-like about it and it will likely fizzle out when I go to bed!

I'm 41+5 - I was 41+3 with my first. I didn't expect to go longer than that. I haven't tried castor oil yet, I'm fearful of the diarrhea but I'm reaching the breaking point so maybe.... I have a sweep today. I couldn't help but cry a little this morning. I lost more of my mucus plug last night, it was pink. Had contractions for 5 hrs 3-6 minutes apart 40-60 sec. It all puttered out around 2am.

The castor oil wasn't great but better than losing my homebirth. I cried A TON in the days leading up to birth. It's a hard spot to be in. Your body is working! 

post #252 of 303

Just wanted to share that I was 41+3 on Wednesday and finally had my baby boy early Thursday morning...I was in tears each day before he came, wondering if it would ever happen, and fearing I'd risk out of the birth center. Lots of on and off contractions finally got "real" on Wednesday and my labor was so quick once it really started. A big "hang in there" to all those who still are...

 

Things I was trying, if anyone needs some inspiration...

 

Evening primrose oil

Gelsemium 

Did One Acupuncture appointment on the day I went into labor

Lots of long walks...

How are you doing this morning?

 


Strongly considering castor oil or enema. How have you been feeling after the sweep. Did it help?

 

I've felt more going on today, but nothing super exciting. I got happy when I first woke up because I thought I'd lost a big glob of mucous, but I think it was probably just semen from a few days ago. Grr...I had some crampiness that seemed to come and go. Out of curiosity I wrote on a pad of paper the time for each crampy feeling, but the numbers were just all over the place. I feel like I'm gearing up maybe, but it seems very slow. I'm trying hard not to rush the process and let it take it's course. I think I feel okay taking this approach though because I don't lose my home birth until week 43. So I have one more week to let this baby come in his/her own time. But I'm getting so anxious that I don't know if I'm going to be able to restrain myself from castor oil or an enema. Plus I really don't want to do the BPP on Monday.

Congratulations mama! I have been doing evening primrose oil. I'm not sure if it's doing anything or not. Today was my last day of doing daycare and now that I'm not caring for other people's children all day long I think I will definitely try to do some long walks.

How nice that you can relax. I'm sure your body is gearing up. I can't imagine it not doing anything this far along. Long walks will be nice. Do you have a birth ball? I was doing circles on mine last night, I think it helped move the head down.

 

I expected the sweep to feel a bit rough or hurt. I didn't feel a thing, I wonder if she was too gentle! They said I'd have some more bloody mucus but I haven't really had any. I'm still 4cm but 60% effaced now - I was 40% on Monday, head is now engaged (it was -1 on Monday). Things are progressing, that's encouraging. They monitored baby's heart rate and found no signs of stress. It's still really active between contractions.... which I've had all day.... We rented a breast pump and I'm actually producing a good amount of colostrum already! The nipple stimulation did little in the way of contractions which I think is due to the fact that I'm already having them. I just can't bring myself to do castor oil.


Like you I don't risk out of a home birth until 43 weeks and even then the mw's said they could break my membranes before going in because they would do that at the hospital anyways. I just don't know if I can mentally go that long. I don't want to carry this stress that long.

For a die hard all-natural-let-nature-take-it's-course type home birther this situation is very humbling and eye opening.

How are you holding up? I'm really pissed that I woke up still preggo this morning with no hint of pressure waves. Every hint of my body doing something seems to have stopped. greensad.gif I'm not trying to be whiney, but really? I mean come on. I'm 41+6 here. This is just feeling very ridiculous! Not to mention I have a very sore throat this morning. My DS has had a fever for the past two days and we suspect that it's an ear infection. But now that my throat is sore I'm worried that it's strep. But he hasn't complained about his throat at all. The last thing I need is to get sick right now. And that sounds terrible because of course I don't want him sick either. It's all just bad timing!

 

I may get my walking shoes on while it's still cooler this morning and head out the door and see how far I can push myself. Perhaps I'll walk right over to the drugstore and bring some castor oil back with me. I really wanted to make myself wait until after Monday (when my BPP is scheduled) before trying to push things along, but I'm just getting so impatient! I'm kind of wishing now that I'd had an internal exam at my last appt., just so I'd know. But I can get that done Monday as I'll see my midwife after my BPP. Another reason I guess I felt like it'd be wise to wait to do castor oil or anything. I don't want to try that if my cervix is not dilated or effaced at all as I think I'd just end up with diarrhea and no birthing.

 

I did see some acupressure videos on youtube for induction. Might try those. I don't know. I'm just frustrated. As I said, feeling very moody and pissed off this morning.

 

Now that I'm done doing daycare, we were able to set up the birth pool (minus water) and get the room ready (I'm birthing in my daycare room) so that we have less to do when birthing starts. Yes, I said when. I'm still refusing to believe that this won't happen on its own. But my faith is wavering.

 

post #256 of 303

Hi Crystal, sorry things slowed down again.  I hope you don't have strep throat!  Do you have oregano oil?  I find that gargling it helps when it feels like I have strep throat.  

 

I was up every five minutes peeing last night and every time I got up my uterus felt so hard but no real action.  Every day I wake up so disappointed!  It's harder than I ever could have thought to be at this stage.

hug2.gifIt's great you can let it all out. Keep ranting, I'm sure every one here can understand and it feels so good to have an outlet.

Can you call your mw and set up an apt before Monday? can you reach your cervix? I swear I was checking myself 3-5 times a day every day I was cramping/having light pressure waves. If you're dilated a sweep might be an easier first try than castor oil. I mentioned to my mw's yesterday that I was considering it and one of them said it's having stomach cramps and contractions at the same time. :}

 

So yesterday I had a sweep, rented a pump for nipple stimulation, circles on the birthing ball for 40 min. (20min clockwise, 20 min ccw) DTD and then.... baby came in 1hr and 48 minutes arriving at 2:24am! I was in shock that he was out so quickly!

 

I was hoping we might go right around the same time, for your sanity and mine! Hang in there, I'm rooting for you!!!

hug2.gifRight there with you. I hope to God we both go soon for our sanity! It is really hard to be at this stage. This is my first experience with this since I allowed myself to be induced at 40+4 with my DS. It's an exercise in faith that my body does work. I'm really fighting off a lot of doubt. I don't have any oregano oil, but my throat's feeling better and based on how strep throat kicked in last time I had it, I'm sure that I don't have it. I'm just paranoid I guess because of course it would be horrible to get sick right before starting my birthing! It still feels a bit scratchy. I'm wondering if it's just the AC in the house. I've been keeping the thermostat pretty low so our AC is running constantly. Expensive as all get out, but I just can't handle the slightest bit of heat! So that could just be making my throat a bit raw and achy.

Wow - Congratulations! What a crazy quick birth! Well, I'm not going to worry about scheduling before Monday. I'm just going to kick it up a notch as far as actively trying to get this baby out. That's the thing - I haven't been as active in attempting to get baby out as some others have - I think largely because I was doing daycare full time and just didn't have the energy. Also, I admit that once I got midway this past week I kind of wanted to make it until Friday anyways so that I could get another full payday before maternity leave. Being officially on maternity leave I really do want this baby to come asap so that I can soak up as much baby time as possible before returning to work.

 

Well, I'm going to try the constant circles on the birth ball - doing that now actually as I type. It's kind of funny - it's a bit like trying to pat my head and rub my tummy at the same time. Every once in awhile I lose my rhythm/direction and have to correct myself! But overall I'm doing pretty good. I had to go by the health store and get some body soap. I picked up the castor oil, had it in my hand, turned the bottle over, thought really hard about it, and just couldn't do it. I will do it if it comes to that because well I'd rather deal with diarrhea and stomach cramps during early birthing than lose my home birth. But I'm a week away from that and I do believe that a lot can happen in a week's time. So, as I said, I'm doing circles. It will be time to reverse direction in another ten minutes or so and I'm already feeling crampy. Plus I'm eating pineapple. I'm not used to eating this much fresh pineapple at one time. It's making me feel a bit bleh, but hey, even if I puke it up, if it helps start birthing I'm cool with it!

I will do it if it comes to that because well I'd rather deal with diarrhea and stomach cramps during early birthing than lose my home birth. But I'm a week away from that and I do believe that a lot can happen in a week's time. So, as I said, I'm doing circles. It will be time to reverse direction in another ten minutes or so and I'm already feeling crampy. Plus I'm eating pineapple. I'm not used to eating this much fresh pineapple at one time. It's making me feel a bit bleh, but hey, even if I puke it up, if it helps start birthing I'm cool with it! 

 


lol.gif I had the same deal with the birth ball.

I love your attitude. :) And it makes sense to wait til you are on maternity leave.

Off to rest. So thankful my MIL is here to help DH deal with the kids and house. love.gif

Swimming-duck, thinking of you!  Hoping birthing gets going soon.  You're still not "overdue," that's not til 42 weeks!  All is still normal!  Your body works!  You can do it!!!
