Ughhh. Hugs to all of you who are going through a rough time these last few weeks of pregnancy.
Another day at the office...I am considering making next week my last week even if the baby isn't here.
I can't believe I'm still here and pregnant. We had an amazing last weekend as a family of four.
Friday evening we ate dinner then went down to our community pool. We had so much fun with the kids! They love the water, and I love what it does to them! KNOCKS. THEM. OUT! Saturday morning we got up, ate breakfast and went down to the beach with my parents. It was high tide, so we couldn't go onto the regular beach, so we went to the "family beach", a tide pool that was calmer and just really nice. We snacked and the kids played in the sand and water. My parents and 3 siblings came with us, and it was just a great day. We went to church Sunday and had planned to have dinner and a Bible study Sunday night with friends, but they got sick so we loaded up and grilled out by the community pool. We stayed well past dark and enjoyed the water. I started having contractions while we were there. I spent more time in the jacuzzi than the pool, breathing through contractions and praying this was labor starting. Through the night, I woke up several times with contractions, and I've had two since waking up this morning. I'm going in for another accupuncture session this morning, so praying this is it!
Happy last full week of May, people!!
Well, yesterday was my due date...but nothing happened. I am actually glad since I was able to celebrate my son's first holy Communion. However, it would be nice to have the baby soon since my in laws are leaving by Wednesday morning.
This house is a mess and I can't seem to keep it clean....ugh!!!
I just did mine online and I am a 6-7 but don't want to be induced, but at least it means that I am getting closer to labor! Tomorrow is my due date and having irregular BH contractions today, but nothing really painful. Sadly, sex and nipple stimulation seem to calm my contractions instead of helping them along, so we may need to stop that! LOL
I'm glad you spilled because I was avoiding this thread for fear I would! Her baby is super chubby!!! I know she'll post pics soon- they're amazing.
Conversation at 2:30 this morning:
Me: I can't take this any more. I want to have this baby NOW.
DH: You mean like TOMORROW night.
Me: No, as in RIGHT NOW!
DH: I don't see that happening
I think the baby is out of room and every time he moves, I hurt to the point where I can't sit or walk. I feel guilty for wanting him to come out ASAP. I never felt this way with my two older kids. I was content being pregnant forever by this point.
Meanwhile, for now I feel loved. I have started to get an influx of texts, phone calls, and facebook messages. They don't come right out and ask if I've had the baby but I can tell that is exactly what they want to know. I'm sure if I go past my due date in a week, that this will get really old. My mom has never called so much (not even when we were expecting our other children). I think it's because she's not banned from this birth and is planning to start her 5 hour drive the minute I let her know we are in labor...and I actually plan to call her for once.
