Who.is still waiting? - Page 2
Whoa, really thought something was going to happen last night...contractions woke me up, but stayed irregular and didn't really increase frequency. Stopped by morning. I'm losing a lot of chunks of white mucus but nothing bloody. And soooo tired. We had family movie night last night and I fell asleep while watching Finding Nemo...at about 7:30!!
There's a full moon next weekend though!
I think I might be "winning".....42+1 today....not the record I was going for! DD was born at 42 weeks, so I was really hoping yesterday would be the day. But today is the day that I said this whole time "I'll just plan to be pregnant until January 21st, and if he comes early I'll be happy!" Well, it's the 21st! Time to come out little baby!
Yesterday and today he's felt really low, to the point where it's horrible getting out of bed and getting started walking after sitting in a chair or in the car or anything. I certainly hope he doesn't plan to stay much longer, I want to walk normally again at some point! No regular contractions though, just random ones here and there.
I am feeling the same way as you describe physically. After my bout of tons of contractions on Fri night & Saturday the baby definitely went lower & walking is painful. I sympathize.
I am having tons of bloody show again this morning, but unlike my other pregnancies (in which I was holding a baby 24-72 hours after the show), it doesn't seem to mean much this time. I was no more dilated or effaced on Saturday after bloody show all evening Friday & all day Saturday. I have no clue how I could've had that much show & no cervical progress, but it's making me try to just ignore the copious amounts of show today. This baby just isn't coming out.
Still waiting!! In the beginning of this pregnancy I thought the baby would come on her due date which is Sunday but as I got more uncomfortable I started to think she would come early. But now I am back to the Sunday plan. I got acupuncture on Monday and the contractions have stepped up since then so much so that sleeping is tough but other than that things are good. Acupuncture again on Thursday evening.
41w now. Like 2 contractions a day lately, less than I got at 6 months. I thought Friday or Saturday, then thought any day now, now I just give up. My midwife gets nervous past about 41.5w and wants to talk castor oil etc when we meet this Friday. She's afraid of getting in trouble I think and it hinders her practice in so many ways. I already tried castor oil it didn't work, did a gentle membrane strip myself when I found I could reach, nothing happening.
42+4 today...this is getting ridiculous...I ate super spicy indian food last night, thankfully it also tasted good
Funnily (or not so much?) the reason I hired the midwife I chose is because she has had a 43 week baby and a 44 week baby, both perfectly healthy, and she's perfectly comfortable with waiting it out so long as the baby is moving and heart tones are strong. I had really hoped we wouldn't even have to deal with being so far "over-due", but in the back of my mind I knew it was a possibility with how DDs birth went at 42 weeks...that girl was not ready to come out yet!
I've been feeling more optimistic the last couple of days after a few days of wanting to scream GET OUT GET OUTGETOUT!!!!!! I know he'll come out any day now, I just wish it would be today!
