Late February Mamas? - Page 2

post #21 of 39


OMG me too. And my family actually. It's either "OMG, you look like you're about to pop" or like yesterday I had some guy ask "How far along are you, 6 or 7 months?"  


Well which is it people, am I bursting at the seems or do I have another 3 months to go!??! I personally don't think I'm all that huge. I out grew maternity shirts with DD and I'm not quite there yet with this one.

 

Hang in there mama. goodvibes.gif Energy sent your way!

I shouldn't be complaining already, but this entire pregnancy was very hard . Looking forward to baby being earth side.

Hoping to get a boost of energy right before baby comes. My 2nd was a week late and I was cleaning and hiking like a maniac many days past my due date i can't imagine how I did that.

I went for a hike today got home at 2pm and have been in bed exhausted and achy ever since..lol

But this heartburn is driving me mad, I am so uncomfortable in any position.

So, anyone still hanging around trying to pass the time like me? I've been spending way more time in the Early labor signs...or Mean Trick thread than I care for! Yesterday I spent the afternoon making 15 pints of strawberry freezer jam, just to pass the time. I'm ready for baby and can only do so much cleaning. 

DS has been wanting to make a toy for the baby, so I think we'll get started on that this afternoon. Some hand sewing should take up some time. 

What's everyone else up to?

Yup, I'm just hanging out.  Today is my actual due date, which means I've been fielding messages, calls, etc all day.  I just want to put up a virtual sign that says "Go AWAY! I will tell you when I have the baby".  But I think that's too mean.  People are just excited, but I don't want to hear it.  I don't want to talk about it anymore. 

 

Everything is clean. Everything is organized. Everything is ready.  And I'm uncomfortable sitting, standing, lying, doing yoga, walking, everything.  Just trying to pass time!  I was thinking about going out to a movie, until my husband reminded me that I've gone into severe back spasms every time we've gone to a movie since early November. So that's out.  Now it's just ist on the couch and eat chocolate cake, I guess?  Ugh!!!!

Yep. Last night...middle of the night...began early labor. Ctx woke me up...I was getting psyched, but I also felt like "if this happens NOW it's going to last forever" cause it just wasn't as strong as it's been for my other 3 kids births. It lasted for a few hours and then petered out. Had a few more ctx this morning but that was about the end of it. My due date is day after tomorrow. :/

I am runnning out of things to do to past the time.  I can't get comfortable either; which leaves out things like going to the movies.  I'm trying not to be cranky with my kids.  I know it's me, not them.

I'm totally with you.  I'm out of things to do.  Last night I had regular 8min Braxton Hicks for a few hours, and then nothing.  I've had no show, no other symptoms.  I'm sick of everyone "JUST CHECKING IN!" over and over again.  I'm thinking about unplugging completely- no phone, no internet connectivity, no facebook, no nothing until after the baby, just to get everyone off my back. I can't get comfy either, and I'm trying not to be cranky with my saint of a husband.... it's totally me. 

 

C'mon babies!

 I have been knitting baby socks and watching Downton Abbey on pbs online to pass the time. I so wanted baby to come today! I am going to walk to the grocery store for pineapple later. Maybe something will happen still today. I should know after my son being 6 days late that there really isn't anything you can do to make things happen faster, hikes, sex, pineapple.....

post #28 of 39

Ooo Downton Abbey! We just started watching and I would love to watch season 1. That's a great idea! We've been doing our sewing on baby toys and I'm still trying to do a lot of cleaning and trying to stay busy. It's just hard and I keep thinking, "How have I been a SAHM for this long and I am totally out of things to do??" What have I been doing all this time and why am I out of things to do now?

Maybe I can think of some freezer meals to make tonight. eyesroll.gif *sigh*

Sorry, jul511riv.  

 

I feel ya. 

post #31 of 39

40 weeks tomorrow. Agree that I am soooo tired of people checking in. Um, listen, if I had the baby there would be an announcement. If I am in labor and I need help, I will contact you. Jesus.

Well it doesn't look like I will be sharing my birthday with the babe as there are only 4 hours left in the day.

Long walks and pineapple doesn't do a thing but I have been having really strong BH that actually go into my back and make me breath with them after DH and I do the deed.

But then when I wake up in the morning they are gone and I feel fine. SO frustrating.

I am planning on this being my last pregnancy and I am wondering if  I am subconsciously holding onto this pregnancy as long as I can. My husband is currently laid off and I am a SAHM and we are not in a good place financially now so I don't feel ready for another babe at the moment. But babe needs to still come out. I feel like it is my fault that babe isn't coming "on time". But i just don't think I am ever going to feel "ready" this time around.

I am 40 weeks 4 days today.

So nice to have a place to chat with other mamas who can relate. We do have a group of stubborn babes don't we?

Good luck to all the other mamas who are waiting. Labor vibes to all!

Well, my water just broke!  Husband got back on another train to come back home (he was literally in the station), going to eat something and rest before contractions start.  I'm strep B positive, so I'm hope they start soon!

 

Good luck to all mamas!

 

Jul511riv, I hope you feel better and unplugging does you good...

Yay! Good luck to you! Easy labor and birthing vibes for you. smile.gif

Yay TeamGR!  I can't wait to hear all about your LO!

 That is the same thing that my husband will end up having to do if I go into labor during the week.  He takes a branch line down to the main line and then into the city.  The hurry home plan includes taking one of the pretty much hourly main line trains to SoNo and then taking a taxi home.  The darn branch line options are slim in the afternoons.

Exciting!!! Can't wait to hear!
I had ctrx all night and morning with blood and mucus plug. Hopeful hopeful.

Good luck ladies! Come on babies! I am hoping we all have some action this weekend. We are running out of February!
