post #1 of 40
Thread Starter 

I woke up about 30 min ago (around 3:15am) with period-like cramping...we'll see where this goes. Today is babe's due date. Might I get this lucky????

Good luck to you, too!!! I'm still just cramping - nothing regular. Did poop but no mucus (I've never had until I was well into labour so this shouldn't surprise me). Happy labouring!!!

YAY to both of you!!!!
 

Can I jump on this train too? I was telling my mom yesterday that I'd like to go into labour that night, after I'd gotten a little sleep. Like maybe wake up to contractions at 2am. Then woke up at 2:07 last night to that achy period-like cramping. Stayed up for an hour with it and had some really interesting sensations but the achiness didn't get any stronger. Fell back asleep after 3am and woke up a few more times but this morning was not in labour. :( However the crampiness is happening on and off this morning so I'm feeling positive. This is my first so I don't really know what to expect from my body but I am crossing my fingers somethings happening. I'm 41+1 or 2 today, and SO READY!!!

oh...I went back to sleep for a couple of hours and woke up to about the same pretty crampy irratic contractions (definately not braxton hicks) lost more mucus and blood and feel so nauseous, I cleaned the house up a bit ordered a pizza for delivery (hoping it helps my nausea and my boys are hungrythumb.gif) and then I think I'm couch camping all day. Tomorrow is my 3 y/o's 4th b day, and if I had the baby today we'd have a 21st 22nd and then my older son is a 23rd of february. Either way I do think we will have a baby by the end of the week. Hugs to the other early laboring mamas!

I finally woke DH up at 6:30 to have him cancel his work day. I got in the bathtub because I was feeling *that* uncomfortable and had him shlep the birth pool up from the basement.. KISS.OF.DEATH. Everything stopped. Not even BH contrax. :( I went back to bed while DH dealt with the kids' morning stuff. Then I sent him to work and took the kids for a walk and to the park. <sigh> We'll see what happens tonight. My MW suggested eating lots of pineapple. Sounds like a good enough idea to me. I was sooo excited about a due date/solstice babe!!!

 

Can't wait to hear from the rest of you out there in labourland!

things have kind of petered out here...I guess I got a taste of prodromal labor. I had it with my last pregnancy too. I am just really tired now and hope to get lots of good sleep tonight.

Same - all signs gone. I'm so disappointed with getting my hopes up - I was so sure. :(

I'm with you all here.  I've been having contractions since Wednesday.  Sometime's they're 10-20 min. apart, for like 8 hours... and they hurt!  Lots of cramping too.  I guess the next wave of our DDC babies are getting ready to come!!!

post #17 of 40

I was very sure a couple nights ago and then, all at once, it halted. 

post #18 of 40

Lots of prodromal labor here too, but nothing that points to it happening soon. I've not gone overdue in the past, but wondering now if I might!

post #19 of 40

Good luck to you ladies :)

 

I woke up this morning with nausea, diarreah and contractions - they almost made me throw up. It's midnight now and they haven't let up all day but some of them have been much stronger than others, being hard to walk thru or talk thru but my doctor said to wait until they are all like that before I go to the hospital. A few of them felt like I was being stabbed but I managed to have a nap, and I just woke up and they are still happening quite strong. I'm really hoping this progresses to active labor tomorrow or the next day *crosses fingers* I'm not due for another 6 days but I've had prodromal labor for 2 weeks but never had the nausea with the contractions or the amount of discharge I've had over the last two days among other icky things!

hope it's labor for you! As for me, I slept SO well last night I am pretty glad I didn't go into labor b/c I was exhausted! Now just back to waitingwinky.gif loosing lots of plug....some contractions and a mild backache. Today is ds2's b day so I'm going to do my best to give him a super special day! That should occupy me enough to take my mind off of things.
