The. Fabulous. May. Chat. Thread. Week. FOUR. - Page 2

post #21 of 95

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.

post #22 of 95

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!!

I'm heading to work today too! (on my bike, even!) I am due tomorrow, but I think I am going to work until the end, though I'm planning to take Friday off.

I am finally getting more BH ctx (I was worried my uterus wasn't 'practicing' enough, I think it NEEDS it after last time!!) at least one an hour or so, when I get up fast, etc. (TMI warning) my discharge completely changed in the last day too, from nothing to very watery/mucousy on and off. I remember last time when this happened (around 38 weeks) I thought my water broke/was leaking since it would literally 'wet' my pj pants! I think Ill have to wear a pantyliner today, for example. Of course last time I went almost a whole month after these signs! but I figure my body is just gearing up later, maybe?

ob/gyn appt tomorrow, I'm guessing since my frikking jeans still fit Ill still be super high, no dilation, etc. Ill be picking up some zofran today to have at home in case I get the weird puking thing again in early labor.

I'm wondering if its even possible to get Z's quilt quilted before I have the baby smile.gif I'm guessing Ill have 60 hours or so of hand quilting, so probably not - I could get a lot done in early labor I suppose, if it lasts days again, and its the days that Z is at my MIL or in school. I'd like to make some progress at least! I am almost done with the baby hat, that should be done today.

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!!!

Just calculated my Bishops Score online...it's a 3.  I am never having a baby.

Bishop's score is how likely an induction is to work. I was told it last time since I went to 41 weeks - and with a Bishop's score of 0, yeah, not so good - they wouldn't induce me until 42 weeks anyway at my doc so it wasn't an issue, but if I was a good candidate, they might have offered to do it at 41 (I wouldn't have taken it though, my BP was high, but not too bad)

Mine I'm guessing is 0 right now, pretty sure I am still not dilated or effaced, and at -3 station. And on my due date smile.gif

post #29 of 95

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

Hoping that since we haven't heard from rylee since 2:40am her contractions were the real deal. :)

post #31 of 95

Ok I'll spill since she posted on facebook, she had her daughter. They are resting at home and getting to know each other. She's GORGEOUS.

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.

insanely jealous right now :)

post #35 of 95

contraction every 15 minutes...but I am expecting it to go anywhere....would be nice to sleep again. And yes, I do sleep better even when I have a newborn that nurses in the night.....

 

Anyone else nesting like crazy? I am cleaning and organizing.

post #36 of 95
Congrats rylee!!!

Well, after contracting regularly all day yesterday and then even calling my mw last night about them, they slowed around midnight. Ugh.
On the other hand my mw checked me today and I'm 4cm and my bag of water bulges during contractions. She also stripped my membranes which hurt(never did with precious pregnancies) and now I've started losing my mucous plug. She also gave me some herbs to take, so hopefully this works. Though I have my baby shower in 2 hours so I kinda hope it waits until after that now smile.gif
And while I'm ready to have the baby I'm nervous about labor...definitely not looking forward to the pain.

I've been knitting like crazy waiting for the baby...working on a 2nd hat and have also made a blanket and a cocoon. And now I'm going to go enjoy our nice weather and my kids smile.gif

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.

thinking I might need to get some eggplant parmesan to rev things up. Heard of the eggplant parmesean...or primavera recipe that is supposed to make you go into labor?

post #39 of 95

I have heard that the Oregano and Basil are what put you into labor. They have been recommending a tea with these two herbs for me, but I can't get it down. I have been adding them both to my salads and had spaghetti a couple of times adding these both, but it hasn't really helped me!

I am super crampy tonite, which is freaking me out. I really do want another week (I know, sorry! no tomatoes! I know I am weird) but I am planning to take Friday off (the mr.'s bday) and want a day with him and Z by ourselves before the babe comes smile.gif

I'm thinking its just BH ctx that are a bit more irritating than usual. I had some wine and they seem to have subsided some. But I have an ob/gyn appt tomorrow, maybe Ill see some results from this and be 1cm dilated or something, woo hoo smile.gif

I do wonder if biking tomorrow will be tricky or not, my pelvis does ache a bit w/ the cramps. I guess we'll see. If its raining again, forget it! At least I just missed the rain this AM. Its been SO cold and rainy this may! not great biking weather.
