Hi Everyone! How exciting to see all these babies coming now, I can hardly keep track already! It's like Christmas morning every time I come back to this site..... Best wishes to all of you who are still waiting!!
Sallyrae - hope your mom's prediction is true... IF you're ready!!
Lily - happy EDD day to you (hang in there)!! Enjoy your visit w/your sister, hopefully she'll get to meet your LO very very soon! (I'm betting that you'll still have yours before mine comes!)
Andaluza - Moms can be weird sometimes, huh?! I did not hear from my parents at all over the weekend, whereas everyone else seemed to be coming out of the woodwork checking in for updates....
Sarahdb - I want my body back tooooo!! I've been trying so hard to be a good sport throughout this pregnancy, but now (post due date) I'm just starting to get stretch marks - and that's the final straw!!! I totally agree that watching all the fit athletes on the Olympics only makes it worse, too!
LeAnn - ahhhh, the beach..... I would sooo love to be there right now, showing off that crazy belly! Look fwd to your pics.... :)
AFM - 1 week past EDD and....still here waiting for baby! Had a(nother) burst of nesting energy return over the w/e, so we ran lots of errands and I scrubbed the house AGAIN, hoping for something to start. No dice...... I just ended up sore as ever (again) and now I can barely walk (but for the wrong reasons!) Oh, and I ate an entire pineapple (in one sitting) both Sat and Sun.... that didn't work either - not even a cramp!
We have an u/s first thing tomorrow to make sure all's still well and then Thurs is the deadline for them to "induce" - starting off w/Cervadil and then Pitocin, if absolutely necessary. I really wish we could have the u/s today, but it's a holiday here. I'm going to beg them to try the Cervadil tomorrow while I'm there and not wait to Thurs (although I am in NO hurry for the Pitocin). Really the only thing driving me to get this baby out (NOW!!!) is my in-laws and stepdaughter's arrival this weekend. Obviously DH and I are not going to get that "1st week alone w/baby" that I hoped for, but I'm settling for even 2-3 days alone before they come.... I really need that time/space!! I know my in-laws will be helpful, but they are very high-energy - which can wear me down pretty quickly. I also need to be rested/adjusted enough so that I can give my step-DD the love and attention that she needs (she's 10 and I haven't seen her in months). DH does not agree w/my "complaints" about this, saying that I'll only be stressed if I worry about it.... but I think my concerns are realistic! Now, I'm worried that if I indeed have a meltdown next week, he's going to say that I brought it on myself! ...... I need to get him reading some first-hand updates posted by new mama's here on MDC, to get a sense of what I'm "worrying" about!!
