Anyone else doing this?

post #1 of 25

Does anyone else compulsively check the boards during the day to see if anyone has had their baby yet? :P

LOL I'm glad I'm not alone!!

I mean, I'm reading everything else too, but impatient me is all "COME ON AND HAVE THE BABIES!!!!!"

My husband said he's going to move out if I hit 40 weeks and still haven't had the baby, because I'm so impatient now that he can't imagine what I'll be like if I go past my due date...

Yikes! I'm not even ready to think about this, honestly... this is the first time I'm at the beginning of the month for a DDC, so the idea that I could be one of the first is freaking me out!

yes! I've been doing this. I'll be very surprised if our DDC doesn't have at least a second birth by this time next week :)

I wonder who will be next!?!  :D

I have definitely been doing this. I am due May 8th, but my mommy instinct is telling me she will be early... of course, it's probably just wishful thinkin. My OB said yesterday that they won't try to stop labor at ths point. So we're just waiting until she's done cooking.

I hadn't started doing it yet...but I think I have been in denial about how close that we are :D I am so excited, but I also have somuch that I want to have done/cleaned/etc. before our little Captain Seahorse arrives :)

 

Anyhow...now that someone mentioned, I will probably totally be doing it :D

I woke up this morning with the feeling that someone had a baby last night or really early this morning. I keep checking to see if I'm right. :P

I've been checking! What might be worse is that I was stalking the November DDC's baby pics because I cannot wait to see babies! Is that creepy? I'm "due" May 6th, but I have a feeling she'll be early (my MW says all first time moms think that).  I had a dream about my baby last night... every time I said "you're so cute" to her, she'd say "I know".  So strange!

Has anyone heard from smilingsara lately?? I just realized I haven't "seen" her online in a while.

I'm here! Just reading along, as I don't feel I have anything good to say... Baby has been very inactive today, but he is still safely inside! I do keep having labor dreams though! 

 

Thanks for asking about me! I feel loved!

that is rad!   I love that "I know." 

 

I go back and forth between wanting to have the baby now! And then knowing it is better if baby stays in for a few more weeks.... We have the car seat, we've hired the PP doula, we need to do a few more things and DH needs to finish some work and stuff... but other then that, baby coming now or in 2 weeks would be just fine.... waiting 4 weeks seems like a long time... even though I've waited this long.  I just really want my body back!

Count me in for birth announcement stalking. :-) I made the mistake of drinking a small cup of coffee last night at 9 (WHAT WAS I THINKING?) and so I was up until 2 or 3....finally resorted to combing through the birth stories forum and the April DDC...
I have two friends who are due next week and I am on pins and needles. smile.gif

Add another one getting misty over birth stories.  April DDC is a place of pure joy right now.

Yesterday I started frantically sewing my double sided diaper wipes, sling and anything else I could think of! I need to clean today, and bake. But we'll see how much I get done before I burn out. :)
