so... our DDC month is just shy of half over, there must be a good number of ladies still gestating, right?
my EDD is 10-24 so its not even unreasonable to expect to give birth in November!
There is a tropical system coming in today, and it usually brings in lots of babies (per my MW). Here I am being hopeful again
I have put up little signs in the bathroom, bedroom, and kitchen reminding myself that "I will birth when baby is ready".
Still pregnant! My EDD is in 2 days. I have an OB appt that day, & they'll do a bunch of checking up on the baby. I'm a little nervous about it. Last pregnancy I went in on my due date & my BP was up, amniotic fluid was low, and the baby's heartrate was having decels so I ended up being sent to the hospital to be induced. It would be really nice to avoid being induced this time around!
I just got back from my midwife appointment. I have to go have a sonogram this week to make sure he is head down, and to see how big he is. She thinks he is kind of big.
She recommended a blue and black cohosh routine. I feel like I've heard conflicting things about them. I'll have to look into it.
She did an exam, not dialated : ( He is still high. but, my cervix was soft.
I just want him to be here.......I feel like the further along I get the more I worry about him.
Still here too! But won't be going into November hopefully! Now 40+2 (or 4 depending on who's date...). Last app't at 40 weeks had soft, thick 1 cm dilated cervix....labour not looking too imminent. My 4 yr old DD was induced with pitocen at 40+ 3 due to high BP and very low fluid...so I have no idea what it's like to start labour naturally! The induction wasn't so bad, except for the hemorrhage after....
Next midwife appt at 40+ 6...and I'll likely drink a herbal concoction called lemon verbina (mw says she gets it from Germany and mw's in Europe use it quite a bit and that it works well). Anyone heard of this or had experience with it?
Hope your babies arrive when and how you hope :)
I'm here. My EDD is the 22nd. I am mostly a lurker. ;) I am not ready to give birth yet. It takes me awhile at the end of pregnancy to come to terms with all the changes that will be happening when baby is born. I have a hard time giving up baby because I enjoy being pregnant for the most part and it is bitter sweet when they are outside the womb. I'm getting excited though. I originally didn't want to go much past my EDD, but I cannot, cannot imagine I'll have a baby by the weekend!
Mostly a lurker - but I am STILL here. Not due until Sunday (23rd), but I "feel" overdue! I had bothof my DDs by now - so this is the longest I have ever been pregnant! I was 3+ cm and 75% effaced last Thrusday and the Dr stripped my membranes but nohting happened - she thought I owuld deliver within a couple of days but so far nothing more than a couple of bouts of mild ctx for a couple of hours...hopefully it has done something though. She did say that when you have those bouts of ctx when the real thing comes it is usually faster. So I am staying at my mom's house bc she is much closer tot he hospital than I am - I live 1.5 hours away on dark lonely roads with no cell phone service. My DH hasn't been able to join us here and was planning on just meeting us at the hospital when the time comes, but he is finally able to come today. I think maybe my body is waiting for him to be here with me! Do you think that could happen?? Maybe tonight is the night! It's funny - I never think of having a baby during the day - I always went into labor at night!
