Now, this a.m., they are still there but not as intense. Although, I'm SUPER constipated! ;-( Which isn't a good sign that labor is near. I wonder if the constipation is what is making me feel like I'm having contractions? I'm afraid to take a laxative cuz what if I go into labor and then am pooping all through it. UGH!



I sooooo feel you on the constipation. I am terrified to do anything about. Maybe an enema? That is a lovely vision but might have to happen at this point

Eeek, I feel for you ladies.  I was constipated ALL the way through my last pregnancy and did nothing about it.  I totally pooped all the way through delivery.  But it didn't hinder or trigger things in any other way...

 

This preg had been pretty bad too, but at least things are moving through a little more regularly...

Constipation is so uncomfortable...maybe an enema would help?

 

I hope something more starts for all of us soon.  I'm going to the midwife today at 4pm...not sure what to expect.  I have not had any internal exams so far this (39 weeks) and I have no idea what she thinks about doing sweeps...guess I'll have to wait and see!

 

Good luck to all!

So...according to midwife, cervix is soft but not dilated.  I know that this doesn't really mean anything.  She says she thinks I have a "good sized" baby in there....whatever that means??

ugh, doc appt today, I'm still at the 1 I was at last week :( he said it was good and soft though, last week he estimated it about 50% effaced...I'm just ready to be done, I've had really light cramps all day but nothing regular or strong.  Next week at my appt I'll be at 39+3 so he said he'd do a light membrane sweep, and my MIL comes in town next wednesday, I'm realllllly wanting to go into labor before she gets here.  *praying with my fingers crossed*

That's what my OB said last Friday. I was 39 weeks and my cervix had softened, but no effacement or dilation. I too have a BAB (Big Ass Baby), so I've just been walking a lot, doing some squats and lunges, and trying to get things going that way. I'm also taking EPO, which I hear helps with the effacement/dilation. 

 

I swear, last night I was having some pretty hardcore BH contractions, and lo and behold baby has dropped! THANK YOU JEEBUS, I CAN BREATHE!!! biggrinbounce.gif

I'm trying to keep moving, but in the last couple of days I have begun to understand what SPD is.  My pelvis feels like it's cracking apart!  I don't think I could do a squat if I tried last night.  I have to climb the stairs one by one.  I'm so thankful this only started now, cuz I can't imagine an entire pregnancy with that pain.

 

Midwife suggested RRL/Nettle tea, and acupuncture. I started EPO 1 week ago and I am now booked in for my 1st ever acupuncture session on Thursday morning at 10:00.  The acupuncturist specializes in obstetrics.  When I made the appointment she said that I couldn't go alone. She did a treatment on a full term woman last week and her water broke on the table...I will hope to be so lucky!

 

She wouldn't guesstimate an actual weight...just good sized.  She also said she may be wrong because I am pretty short (5ft1in), so proportionally the baby may just be taking up all of the available room and skewing her impression of how big it is.

Same here. I walked a lot today and had my second round of acupuncture. It's so frustrating. I have so many signs but nothing sticks around. 40+3 for me....

Walking here too and second round of acu as well today- 41 weeks now and so frustrated. I feel like this baby is not going to come out.

I'm feeling like roadkill today. So tired and achy. I was so exhausted when my DH woke me up this morning that I started crying. My abdominal muscles are so sore, too, like I was having BH contractions all through the night.

 

Honestly, I feel like doing anything other than going into labor today. Ugh.

You poor girl; what did you do to deserve that?!?!  Hoping you go soon!
