Who else is due at the end of June? - Page 3

post #41 of 303

Glad to see our little tribe is still around.

I'm 38 weeks tomorrow, and keep wanting to melt down as the birth stories come.  I'm glad other mamas have babes in their arms.  That means mine is coming sooner than it was 2 weeks ago.  I'm starting to have little cervix pinches or twinges and a few contractions, but mostly just uncomfortable...

I keep telling DH that I know baby will come when baby is ready, but man yesterday would have been ok with me.

I'm not due until the 26th and I'm pondering hanging out in the July club because all the new baby posts are getting me too . . . I don't even know what the word is!  I'm just not ready yet!

post #43 of 303

spring bride and erigeron I am so with you both!! I'll be 38 weeks tomorrow. Erigeron, my sister had a preemie and did not go past due with any of her 4 my mom also had my brother about 6-7 weeks early. But, as far as my body goes I know I have a history or making it atleast to 39 weeks...I love the stories I actually have not been here much through my pregnancy but am now officially addicted to coming here for the stories and commiseration and chit chat. We officially set the date for my son's bithday party (rented the jumper) it's set for the 25th. I think the only thing that's going to change that is if I'm in labor . I am to the point of saying we are having the party even if we have a newborn and I will take advantage of anyones help offerings. Unless I'm in labor that day...lol I'm printing the invites with this in mind redface.gif

  Swimming duck thanks for responding to my earlier post, what you said really rang a bell with me. Not all friends are right for every instance or circumstance of our lives. I am going to go ahead and pack a bag today in case we do go to the birthing center. I am waiting on  a warranty giftcard for my camera which a certain 3 year old broke. I sure hope it arrives soon so I'll have a camera. Hugs to all the late june mamas! Not too much longer now.

oops double post

post #45 of 303

To make matters even better for me, my mom keeps calling me asking when she should come down here.  My mom and DH's mom live very close to eachother, but it's a days drive away from us.  They are coming down together when baby comes.  My mom is going to be our labor photographer and DH's mom is going to spoil DD for us :)  

But she calls me every couple of days asking, "When should we come?"  "Did they do an internal check yet?"  "Have you had her sweep your membranes?"  "When does your midwife think you will go into labor?"   AHHH!  It's driving me crazy!

 

Anyways, thanks for the rant :)

argh! Hugs mama! My hubby is a truck driver and can be a couple hours away at a time  , he has been telling me to let him know when I am feeling like it's getting close. As of now I'm so afraid of giving him false alarms...He missed the birth of our 3 y/o.

 

post #47 of 303

springbride - That sounds like my mom.  She lives 2000 miles away and is quite anxious.  Funny that when I lived about 30 minutes away she wasn't near as interested.  shrug.gif  My mom's latest is questioning 'when'...When am I going to call?  When am I going to name the baby?  When am I going to tell the rest of the family?  When can she come?  When, when, when!  I give her really vague answers that drive her nuts. 

 

tashantx - My husband is often far away for work.  I'm a bit concerned that he won't be able to make it and then to top it off, our midwife could be as far as 2 hours away if she were at her home when I went into labor.  A little nervewracking to possibly deliver myself!!

post #48 of 303

I'm not too bothered by the birth stories and announcements, they are making me excited though!  The only thing really bothering me, and it has bothered me every pregnancy...as we get close to the end my family members all start calling me daily.  They don't ask any specific or prying questions, but they just want to say how are you, how are you feeling, how are the kids doing, what are you up to.  While I love them all, I'm about ready to silence my phone.  I don't want to talk on the phone all day.  I just want to hang out in as much peace and quiet as a 6 and 3 year old allow and nest.

 

I'm due June 24th, by the way.  :)

post #49 of 303

Due the 25th and I'm back and forth on whether I'm ready.

 

On the one hand I am SO TIRED of going to work.  But having a baby just so I don't have to go to work the next day is probably not the best reason.eyesroll.gif

 

On the other hand I'm definitely not emotionally ready.  I'm mourning the loss of our three-person family.  Terrified of having two children.  DH and I have been so busy we haven't connected with each other in weeks.  We spent all last night arguing and I think in part its because at least that's some sort of emotional connection KWIM?  He says he's given up on trying to make me happy because it's impossible for me to be happy.  He needs someone to pay attention to him.  These are the same issues we've strugged with for our whole 9 years of marriage.  I don't want to pull the pregnant card, but seriously, I have no energy to pay attention to him.  Sex would help, but that's what set off my first labor so at this point I don't want to have sex unless I'm also ready to immediately begin labor.  Moments for intimacy that don't occur at the end of a long/exhausting day no longer happen for us.

 

Anyways, that went in a different direction than I intended.redface.gif

Once again, that would drive me insane. I think I'd just stop answering. Let them wonder whether or not I'd gone into labor!

That's so me right now. I just want to be on freaking maternity leave already. I don't go anywhere for work. Instead between 4-7 children descend upon my house, depending on the day. I'm ready for the challenge of juggling a newborn with my rambunctious and energetic nearly 4 year old. Somehow it sounds easier than running a full-time daycare while 9 months pregnant. But yes, a terrible reason to want to go into labor. Not to mention, we still have a lot of stuff around here that needs to get done!

pull the pregnant card!! DO IT! We argued yesterday too...for similar reasons but I'm the one who feels slightly neglected. It actually had me a ball of nerves and made me so sick, I just don't handle the conflicts well at all. I understand also mourning the loss of what you have now but I think everyone has those little anxieties mama! Everything will be just fine. My husband and I have allways been so close and had a great bond. But, I lost my dad in february of this year and my mom in march of 2010 so I have been so needy and so emotionally unstable this pregnancy I think he feels overwhealmed. Thankfully our arguements ended in some much needed cuddles and loving. I hope the same happens for you and your husband. I feel we really need a strong bond b/c the months to come are going to be testing and I definately don't want any built up anger/ resentment towards him as he is my number one birth support.

So she called me again today, to ask when she should come, so i told her hmm, how about the 18th?  (Due the 20th, it's a whole days drive) seems like a safe bet to me.  I thought this would calm her nerves....yah no!  "Why the 18th?"  Are you going to have your midwife strip your membranes at your appointment that week?  Are you sure that's not waiting too long?  Good grief!  Maybe I'll just stop answering my phone :)  I kind of hope that my water breaks in the middle of the night so I can call her and say "Uh,  hope you're sleeping in your road trip clothes"  lol.gif

Um, definitely pull the pregnancy card!  I did it... we were arguing and I was hormonal and crying.  I just told him, "I'm sorry I'm not being calm, but these are my real feelings and I need your XYZ (support, help, a break with DD etc)  

It helped  *hugs*
 

 

post #55 of 303

It's great to hear from all you ladies.  I was off the boards for ~1.5 days and there are a TON of new birth stories!  Reading all of them is starting to get me more excited about having this baby.

post #56 of 303

I was SO with you who are saying you are tired of going to work. And LO came 3 weeks early! And she's perfectly healthy and 7.8 pounds. Midwife said thank god she didn't go to 40 weeks, because she'd be enormous! So, there's hope! I think this was my daughter's first move as an excellent team player - getting me out of the last three weeks of school :)

 

post #57 of 303

38 weeks and a couple days now. My mom has started calling daily... as if she would really have to call to find out if I was in labor. She's #1 on our call list! As of right now though no real signs anything is going on that would indicate labor is imminent. Although since this afternoon I think I may have dropped... maybe. I don't think it looks like I've dropped but I can certainly feel my belly against my lap a lot more when I'm sitting up. Who knows though- maybe I'm just imagining things. redface.gif I keep wavering between feeling DONE and needing to have this baby right this second and and being at peace with going past my due date. lol.gif And this happens several times a day. I'm also to the point where it seems like no matter what I do I'm *constantly* thinking about labor and scrutinizing everything my body does as a possible sign that I'm going into labor... which is just maddening. nut.gif I know I'm not going to be pregnant forever and it will happen when it happens but not knowing when just drives my controlling side batty! My mom has pointed out to me several times that there will be a full moon this Wednesday. Who knows. I hope you other late June-ers are at peace and relaxing! I'm trying. It's just hard when the end is so close- yet so far away. winky.gif

I could have written your post.  I'm really trying so hard to ignore all the 'signs', but it's hard.  I know it usually leads nowhere and that I will know when it's time, but I wish I had some clue.  I have a busy week ahead, though, with my other kids, so I can't say it would be a good time for baby to arrive...so it probably will.  winky.gif  Also, my midwife will be out of town on this Saturday (my due date) and that is totally a reason for baby to wait until then as well.  HOWEVER, I'm going to guess it will be the next week before baby will arrive.

 

Oh, and my mom is calling every day as well.  It's not like she hasn't known the previous two times, but it's driving her nuts...that and the fact we haven't decided on names.  It's kind of fun driving her crazy, though. 

 

post #59 of 303

My mom was asking every time I talked to her. I told her we actually aren't going to call anyone not on the birth team until afterwards. She sounded kind of disappointed, but understood my reasoning. Honestly, if I could tell her and her not call constantly to "see how things are going", I would, but that isn't going to happen.

 

I'll be 39 weeks on Tuesday. I, too, waiver between thinking something is going to happen soon and thinking it will be after the 4th of July. I sort of have June 25 in my head. My edd is the 21st by my calculations, the midwife's office actually has the 17th by the sono. I'm still pretty comfortable, so fine with waiting as long as it takes. I've been getting a LOT of last minute knitting done, which is super cool.

post #60 of 303

I'm still here too :)  Putting in some lonnnng days around the homestead. If hard physical labor put a woman into labor.....I'd be there!  We flooded on Monday, and it's been a long week with lots of work and long hours. No sign of baby!  Course now, I think I'd like him to stay put until the end of the week so I can get a few more things done, so he probably won't. I too was checkin' out the full moon on the 15th! I wonder how many of us will go then?! I'm still betting around the 18-22 for me, but we'll see! My other boys DOB's are 14th and 18th of their months so I think I need a 16th or a 22nd to keep up the pattern :D
