Who else is due at the end of June? - Page 5

post #81 of 303

I've noticed a decrease in movement, too. This babe hasn't been a big mover to begin with. I actually had a NST last appt to double check.

 

I've definitely been feeling more irritable, I think just from getting uncomfortable.

 

For me, it's really important to only surround myself with positive images/stories of birth at this point. I'm visualizing my birth a lot, always the same way, how it will go, how amazing it will be, finally meeting my baby. Tomorrow is my actual edd. I started listening to my "Birthing Day Affirmations" today. Good stuff!

I've read a few things lately that I wish I had waited to read and I'm having trouble getting rid of thoughts with fear clearing now. But I will keep trying. I've already listened to the Birthing Day Affirmations - LOVED it! 

 

I'm happy for you that you've been able to visualize your birth consistently. I'm working hard on this. I did finally get through a visualization. For the longest time I kept falling asleep every time I tried. Or my mind would wander and I'd forget what I was doing. I don't know if it's because this birth is going to be so different than anything I've ever experienced, but I really struggled with the visualization for awhile!

 

I'm feeling uncomfortable. DH and I had some time without our DS last night and I was really hoping our activities would get things going. But I woke up with no pressure waves and still pregnant. I think baby is comfy where he/she is right now!

I'm totally with you ladies in only wanting to hear/read positive things right now. Of course after I posted about decreased movement this babe put it's dancing shoes on, hehe, and it's been two days of a ton of movement now. I keep getting these really mild contrax that get my hopes up that it's time but they only come like once an hour or twenty minutes or something and then putter out. Boo-hoo. I've gotten super braxton hick-y this past week. Today is my EDD as well and I just feel super ready to meet this babe and not be  pregnant anymore, lol. It feels like I've been preggo for FOREVER.

A massage sounds really nice.  I've been trying not to spend any extra money - we're going to be tight while I'm on maternity leave - but it may be worth it.

 

Today I'm 39 weeks and 1 day.  Heading to the midwife this afternoon, and I think I'm going to have her check me.  I haven't been checked yet, and now I'm just plain curious.  I am physically drained, and it must come across to other people.  The comments from random people in public have been flooding in.  Everybody has something to say about me looking like I'm about to have this baby any minute.  I continue to try to keep a positive attitude and visualize holding and breastfeeding my little one.  Come on baby!!!

 

Is today the turnover from Gemini to Cancer?  I will say that I am looking forward to a Cancer baby.  I don't know a whole lot about Geminis, but my BF from college and both of my grandparents are Cancers, and I get along with all of them so well.  Maybe little one was just waiting for the Cancer sun.

I was just looking this up last night because I was curious what baby would be if born in June. Cancer starts June 21 and goes through July 22. Both myself and my DS are Cancer. He's 7/12 and I'm 7/14. So we will for sure be having a third Cancer in the family! I think Cancer rocks, but I'm biased!

Well, I made an appt. for a pedicure, manicure, and eyebrow waxing for after I get off work tonight. So now for the first time I really do want baby to hold off. I want to get my toenails cute before birthing time. Lord knows it would be a tragedy to have ugly toes in my birthing pictures! My eyebrows do look a bit furry and overgrown right now. I may hold off on the mani because my nails actually look decent. I've been trying to keep up with them in case I start my birthing time. eyesroll.gif My pedi I definitely need though considering there's no way I could even begin to reach my toes right now. They might as well reside on Mars!

 

So is anyone else crazy enough to still be working right now?

 

I'm hoping my new cell phone comes today. I lost mine over a week ago and finally broke down and ordered a new one. What rotten timing! Dh has his, so I'm putting all of the necessary phone numbers into that one, but what a pain!

I would work if I got the opportunity, but that basically involves calling every store in the area and asking if they have shifts for me, or calling the most likely ones. Most pharmacy managers like to schedule 2-3 weeks out (and really, I can't blame them), so they're unlikely to have anything soon. I've also distributed my number so theoretically if anyone calls in sick I might get called and asked to cover. My regular manager is supposed to be keeping his feelers out for anything that crops up for me.

 

It's probably just as well, but I have to admit the extra money would be nice.

Yeah, I've gotten totally antsy in the last, maybe, 3 days. Before, I was, like, Oh, come out whenever, be 2 weeks over, that's fine. But, suddenly, I'm ready! I'm uncomfortable, I'm ready to be able to move around without making loud grunts all the time. I'm ready to meet my baby.

I can totally identify with the grunting!

This! To a T. I'm dying to not be pregnant anymore, even though there are plenty or rational reasons I should be savoring this last bit of a break.

I am!  Though I'm certainly not very productive--case in point that I am typing this at work.blush.gif  I'd LOVE LOVE LOVE to not be at work, but I'm saving every minute of my vacation till after babe comes.  (Though if my due date comes and goes this weekend without a baby I may change my tune and focus on birthing instead of working next week).

 

I'm pretty disappointed that today doesn't appear to be our birthing day.  I've visualized having a Solstice baby for practically this entire pregnancy.  We have two middle names picked out --one is Solstice if she was born on the Solstice and the other is a family name of my DH's that I really don't like.  I was just so certain that today would be the day...

post #92 of 303

I really wish I could still be at work.  I'm not used to be home like this, but there is no way I can walk around work right now.  So be it.

 

I went to the midwife today, and I'm 3 cm and 70% effaced!  Come on baby!

 

Oh, and now I'm wishing I got my eyebrows waxed.  I might have to do that tomorrow.

post #93 of 303

Pedicure, manicure, and brow waxing were just lovely I have to say! The chair for the pedicure is a vibrating chair. It would time out after awhile, but I had the remote to operate it so I could just press the button to start it over every time it timed out. I'm hoping the vibration might do something to spur things on, but I won't hold my breath!

Thanks Kawa. That was beautiful. As for you, dust.gif I'm really hoping to read about your arrival soon.

 

Gah - up at 4:30am. I've been tossing and turning and finally gave up and got out of bed. I woke up several hours ago to my little man laughing in his sleep. I think it's so adorable when he does that. It always makes me wonder what he's dreaming about. And it makes me feel happy that he's obviously dreaming something good! Now if I could just go back to slumberland that would be fantastic. I don't have any kids until 9:30am, so there's potential for sleeping in if I could just get back to sleep!

Laughing in his sleep! I can't remember any of mine doing this. It's sad the way some details are lost.

 

Last night I slept heavy for a few hours, woke near five and realised why - contractions! Irregular but strong. I think today is the day I will meet my son.

I really really hope so Kawa. I think we're all rooting for you at this point!

Hoping this is it for you Kawa! I was up at 4:00 am today as well, no squish here though ;-)
