OneMore - so happy to hear she is doing better. Maybe some babes just need more time to adjust to life outside? I know I would. Good to hear she's latched on and is alert.
Meredith! What! Yay. Can't wait to hear your birth story!
Wow everyone. So many babies born. Such exciting and unique birth stories all of them. Anyone else become a waterworks when you read birth stories? I was like this when I was pregs with DS as well. I remember DH and I made the mistake of watching Knocked Up when I was pregnant with DS and rather than be frustrated by what an idiotic movie it was, I remember balling my eyes out at the birth scene. Anything - from the most real birth story to a dumb Hollywood movie birth scene gets my tear ducts flowing. Oh well.
As for me... remind me I'm not the only pregnant woman left, please!
I am still not in labor and it is crazy to me. So so totally different from DS. I'm dilated at least 4 cm, have officially lost the mucous plug (eww is right. It looked kind of like an oyster? or a slug?). Had bloody show two nights ago. Had constant low level cramping contractions for the past two days. But nothing doing? OK, so I know SOMETHING is happening. I know I just need to trust that my body is doing what it has to do to gear up for labor. But ... come on baby! And also - I think this is a big baby. Like, a really big baby. a little nervous, as I did push DS (he was 8lb 10.5 oz but had a REALLY big head LOL) out for 5 hours. I have some PTSD about that.
Baby is SUPER ACTIVE. I feel like DS was less active when labor was close but maybe I just don't remember. Anyway, I would really love for baby to come by Sunday. Monday is a terrible day. First, the "post date" ultrasound (it's my EDD. doesn't really feel like post date!), another Dr appt, and my CRAZY FIL COMES on Mondays. I really really really can't stress enough how badly I want baby to be here by Sunday so I can cancel on FIL, don't have to put myself or baby through an ultrasound, and just be on the "other side" again.
I am totally losing my mind. I just need to put on some good music and relax.
