Blessed, you crack me up!

 

Denver, good luck!!

 

And thanks for all of the encouraging words about big babies. I had my acupuncture appointment last night and so far nada. My cramping has lessened and I'm just hanging out, growing a baby.

Yay! What fun it will be if we've three birth announcements today! (Sandy, maybe Denver - and someone else -- Goddess??).

Blessed - I totally have that weird low down thing going on too - yesterday dr said its very common for second (third, fourth, etc) time moms to say things feel that low... I had that same feeling the other night of not being pregnant from essentially the waist up but feeling all sorts of weird stuff around the pubic hair line ... Really odd.

All this talk of sunny side up babies, I think mine switched into posterior yesterday too. So I am going to work from home all day and focus on getting him back into position. Little squirmer.

I am fascinated by all this mucus plug talk and wonder if I will see mine this time around. Last time, granted it was 2 in the morning when I woke up in labor, but I had some blood on the toilet paper when I wiped and no remarkable discharge as far as I can recall. I feel like I would have remembered something like a mucus plug if it was anything like what you all are describing! smile.gif

I am feeling ready to go into labor maybe... As soon as this weekend is over smile.gif. I learned yesterday I'm gbs negative !! Woo hoo - maybe all the probiotics worked because I was positive last pregnancy? Feels like all systems are in place to have babe any time -- but I don't really feel any early labor signs at all yet - and at work the other day a woman told me she has the strongest feeling my baby will come May 20!! Nooooo!

Denver- so exciting!!! I hope you're getting some rest :)

 

I think my water broke too... I wish it was a gush so I'd know for sure.  It's been leaking out (really falling out) since 4am.  I'm running out of underwear and pajama pants!  We emailed our doula to describe it and she just texted back that yes, it sounds like my water broke.  This is my first so I'm just playing along and waiting to see what happens. smile.gif  Our EDD was May 6th.

It sounds like lots of babies may be on the way.  I anticipate getting no work done today since I'll have to be obsessively checking the boards!  Good luck everyone!

I had contractions yesterday evening for a couple hours at 3 min. apart starting when I was making dinner.  Some were painful and they were really long, over 1.5 min.  Thought *maybe* my body was gearing up for the real thing, but I had company come over and it fizzled.  Is it possible that having company could contribute to that or was my body just pulling another pre-labor warm-up on me?  Ah well, another day.  Time to focus on something else.  I am so excited to read some birth stories here soon!

me too! so happy I'm working at home today so I can check obsessively! What H Jane described is how my water broke with DS - gradually over the course of several hours and many pairs of underwear until finally I was like, this is crazy, I need to go to the hospital (but by then I was also having contractions every 2, 3, 4 minutes so it was all pretty intense). How exciting! Yay May Babies! Finally making their appearance joy.gif

Wooohoooo!!!  carrot.gif  Let the floodgates open!  banana.gif  How many babies will we have today?!broc1.gif 3? 4?  How exciting!  :D

 

 

As for me...still nothing.  I was so restless last night trying to fall asleep I thought for sure I'd be in labor by this morning, that made sense in the middle of the night.  lol  But alas, there is nothing going on here.

Aaaaaand the board stalking will now kick into high gear. Come on little babies! This is so exciting! :-) That is like 4 or 5 I think...Denver, Goddess (she said Thursday, right?), Sandy, H Jane and...someone else, right? I know I'm forgetting.
Either way! YAY! Yay yay! Good labor and delivery vibes to all of you! joy.gif
