This week is my "EDD" Or what I consider " EDW" Im pretty sure NOTHING will happen soon... BUT I am soooo ready to met my new little person! I am "due" the 25th , so friday really. But who knows really. My babies are/were all Overachievers of the Uterus!  I am sort of thinking that September he/she will show up? It was such a beautiful day today I couldnt help but take a picture. I LOVE the way the clouds look and the overgrown grapes are hanging, turning green to purple, the other sunflowers are like me, hanging out in full bloom!

 

It seems like EVERYONE has birthed their babies, I know thats not true, I know there are more mamas out there!

 

Who is still baking their little ones?

 

Peace, live and light!

Here! Due in a week. Finally getting the feeling of I AM DONE. So I know it will be soon. DH's last day of clinical work is today and I am SO happy. Kids are going to watch a movie, I'll do some ironing and then wake up in the am knowing that DH will have the entire month of September off. Very cool.

I always love your pictures- you live in an absolutely gorgeous area.

I'm still baking. Somewhere between 41 and 41+5 today. SOOOO ready to meet my little one. Never thought I'd end up being one of the last ones in the group pregnant.

wave.gif Still here too! I am soooooo done! I am due this weekend(Friday/Saturday), but I keep hoping it will happen any time now. We have hurricane Irene coming on Friday, and it's supposed to be a cat 2-3, so I really hope he comes before then! Thursday DH is getting a vasectomy(it was the ONLY date that they had before we moved, so he had to take it...) and my mom flys in that evening then DD1's open house at her school in the evening too, so he can't come then. Haha but that is probably the day he decides to be born since it's such a busy day! I reeeeeally don't want to be driving 40 miles in a hurricane to get to the birth center to have this baby, so I'm hoping he comes in the next 3 days....

I'm still hanging on too. I'm not "due" until 30th, a week tomorrow, so I still have potentially 3 weeks of waiting. I'm trying to mentally prepare for this baby to come Labor Day. DS was a Memorial Day labor (although born the day after thanks to a very, very long labor) and when we realized we were due within a week of Labor Day we joked that it would probably be then. I think my babies may like holidays for marking their arrival.

 

I had the false labor from hell last night, and have decided I'm going to stop torturing myself by thinking it could be any time now. Instead I'm going with Labor Day and expecting NOTHING before then.

 

I also agree with how beautiful your picture is Mama. I do wish it was a bit cooler down here so I could enjoy being outside more.

 

Angie I know what you mean about Irene, as I'm currently in a direct hit path with her too. It'll be my first hurricane here if she does cross our path, but I'm not going to worry about it unless DH tells me to start packing, as he leaves town for direct hits. It would mean going to stay with his family which would really suck this close to delivery, but hopefully it won't come to that.

Oh man! that would prove to be a interesting delivery! better prepare for a homebirth just in case!  It would be lovely if us mamas could pick a week at least for our babes to be born... wouldnt it?!?! LOL.

 

This week week/end will be busy for us too.. Not that I want it to be though. My parents decided they are coming up to our house to "camp" which they have done in the past, they know Im due this weekend, and I REALLY dont want them "hanging out". we are planning ot UC so the less eyeballs on me the better! I dont know why they feel so inclined to hang out THIS WEEKEND! we both told them to wait till after the baby is here to head up. I am sort of thinking that the baby will make a apperance this week, just to prove to be a interesting entrance.

Still here. Due tomorrow, 8/23. I was hoping not to be waiting anymore and today would have been the perfect day numerically, but I think this baby may not be into numeric perfection or have the desire to be a Leo. Oh well. I'll keep my fingers crossed that he will come soon and if not then, he will come later.

 

For those of you in the path of Irene, I will be thinking about you. Hope the storm spares your area!

tiphat.gifI'm still here, too. About 100 weeks pregnant (or 39). Glad I'm in good company!

I haven't been posting much but I'm here!  I'm DDB with AgathaAnn and I thought I'd beat her to it, with all the false labor I've been having.  Since the end of July and we had a false alarm a few days ago that was so convincing we called the midwife out in the middle of the night.  For nothing.  I felt like sobbing; this is so hard!  And I don't have a concrete date to go by so it's a little frustrating.  I have had DD of the 11th (LMP), the 21st (gender US) and the 30th (early US).  Our midwife was not comfortable with the 30th because she heard the hearbeat a week before that so it seems really far off.  She was talking about maybe taking some action by the 25th.  And she recommended homeopathic cohosh, cauliphyllum and cimicafugia.  Anybody heard about those?  From the research I did I wasn't comfortable taking them but it would sure beat a medical induction.

 

And I lurk so I "know" some of you from past posts:

Mamatwo8:  you always have great pics!

love4bob and Lynann:  my dad is in Fort Lauderdale and was planning on coming up tomorrow but the hurricane is hindering his plans, he has a boat down there that he needs to get ready for the storm.  Good luck to you, I hope you don't get caught in it while you are in labor!

FischK:  that's funny, I keep thinking of great sounding due dates and she's not really into that either, apparently!

Mareseatoats: I feel 100 weeks pregnant too.  Sucks!

post #10 of 76

I'm still here too.  40 weeks 1 day

post #11 of 76

I know I haven't been posting much, but I'm still here too. 40+3 today. Nothing is happening so far, so I think I'll be here for a while longer.

 

 

mamatwo8- that picture is gorgeous.

post #12 of 76

I don't post much either. But I'm still here. 39 +3 today. My DD was born at 39 so it was really hard not to get excited about an early arrival. Saturday was a bad day...I just felt totally bummed all day. The cloud has lifted a bit now and I'm starting to focus on the weekend. Hoping it happens then or before then. I was really hoping for the 29th anyway (the back up mw that is super supportive of hvbacs, is back from vacation then)...just hard to keep perspective when you hurt ALL over.

post #13 of 76

I'm still here.  :(  DS was born a month early so I have been ready and waiting since the end of July.  I'm not due until Wednesday, and I had just gotten my head wrapped around the fact that this one might not be born until September, when out of the blue I start having contractions today.  I'm so afraid to get my hopes up (especially with all the prodromal labor going around) but I really hope this is it!

post #14 of 76

I'm still here. I've been more quiet than normal, but I've just been feeling pretty anti-social. DH has been really anxious, and the in-laws are starting to get on my nerves. 

 

I'm half tempted to just be a hermit for the rest of this pregnancy. 

post #15 of 76

I'm here--41 weeks today. :-(

post #16 of 76

Still here too.  40 weeks today! Hoping she magically decides to come today so we don't have to start talking induction....

post #17 of 76

I'm still bakin' too:) I'll be 39 weeks Thursday.

post #18 of 76

Still here! And now we've all got Virgo babies.

post #19 of 76

Yup, it'll be a virgo. No matter what. 

post #20 of 76

Still here, 39+1 today. Trying to ignore anything labor related until either its active labor I have to concentrate through or my waters break. I'm being driven crazy by the prodromal labor tease. If it wasn't all start and stop I think I could wait quite patiently for this baby to arrive whenever they decide to. I'm trying to focus on having to wait until Labor Day.
