I know there's a lot of us left, but all these awesome birth announcements are leaving me anxious and excited to meet my baby! There's no point to this thread, really. I just feel like I'm hanging out, waiting around now. And I've gone overdue with both previous pregnancies, so I don't know why I let myself get so psyched. Who knows.. maybe this one will be different?
Ooh.. just hangin' out
Hanging out too. I'm 38w3d right now and I was just thinking earlier today that we started my ds's eviction process at 38w5d. I will be 38w5d on Monday, which just happens to be my ds's 8th birthday. DS really wants baby born on his birthday, but it's looking like Sunburst is pretty comfy in there and in no hurry to come on out. Assuming everything is going fine (no bp issues, no protein, etc) then we'll discuss eviction notices at 41 weeks (10-19) so I still have a little ways to go.
We are social. We need connection. I get something I need here at MDC - see post count!!
But we shouldn't really have 100 friends due at the same time. It's weird.
I've got my baby in my arms, but he's only here because I got sick. My body couldn't support us both any longer. He got kicked out before he was ready. I had to be induced, with all that entails, risk-wise, for me and him.
It worked out okay, but it was nerve wracking for me.
In my oh-so-vast experience (one other DDC) the unevenness sucks, but it is temporary. Eventually, no one is pregnant anymore, and instead you have a group of mothers with babies and then kids the same age. Of course, I've had it easy as I've been on the early side both times.
to anyone who is having hard time with the waiting.
40 weeks 1 day today, and no signs of actual labor yet. I wake up every night with killer menstrual type cramping, which will last about two to three hours, and then I fall asleep and that's the end of that. I've been feeling like I'm battling a gastro-intestinal bug for the past two weeks, and I'm getting kind of sick of it. I don't know if it qualifies as prodromal labor or not, but it sure is annoying. I've also been getting tons of poking and kicking on my right side, which leads me to believe that the kid managed to turn transverse again. At this point I am so sick of it all!
Sorry, just had to vent for a bit. So yeah, I'm still just hanging out as well.
39 weeks today! No one has expected me to make it this far, baby has been sitting way way down (like his bum is at my belly button, and I'm only 5ft 2in) for what weeks, been having prodromal labour for 3 weeks, lost my mucous plug, had my bloody show.......and here I sit sans baby. Soon enough baby will come. Maybe I'm annoyed because dh won't do anything on his "prebaby to do list" and if I have the baby then he would get off his bum and do it....hmmm maybe that's my problem.
