so i've been proud that my dates are somewhat accurate.

 

Kellybeth- have you been a vegan all these years?  as a raw foodist, many people didn't get periods (and i didn't get them regularly until after my first baby) and i know many vegans who didn't have regular 'cycles', and i had 4 a year.  but conceived each baby first try!  

 

i always feel like these little people are specifically and blessedly chosen for this time.  and such blessings!  now to meet them!

nope, not a vegan for too long. i had issues when i was younger with my ovaries that were supposed to leave me infertile. 

 

i cannot wait to see baby pictures from our group! we're all so different but all so connected. 

i have had the poos all day today and super crampy. blech- i wonder?

I have!

 

6 every day, like clock work. I'm going to keep with with it until she's born but I'll be the first to admit that I'm really, really tired of them. Maybe I'll check this recipe out

I'm waiting for my poos to start.  :p

This morning DH was asking if I'd call him if my water broke today and I said no, but I would text.  Last time it was 20 hours after water breaking before labor started.  It was suuuuper annoying to have him home and all of us just waiting around for something to happen.  But both times I had the poos right before or at the onset, so I think that may be my cue for the real thing this time, too.

some mild, but low, sporadic contrax today.

And I got my music playlist done.  Hopefully I actually like it while in labor.

I have too!  I don't mind them too much, but am getting a bit tired of them too.  Definitely keeping me regular though, considering I am taking iron supplement too.

Babies may be coming tomorrow!  I've got a good feeling about it.  I'm having more frequent non-BH along with nausea, and it just feels like this may be it.  We'll see.  I'm going to bed early and try to get some sleep.  Both of my friends who will be with me as doulas want as much advance notice as possible, and I'm trying to decide whether it's worth calling them or not.

Good luck, Brambleberry!! If labor is starting I hope you can get some good rest first.

 

I've been poopy and crampy today, too. Still not thinking it's gonna happen soon, am more thinking it will be next week, but you never know!

post #108 of 195

Brambleberry, so excited for you!!!! Good luck, Mama!!

 

Loveandgarbage, same here. Poopy and crampy, but I feel like it'll be months till birth, lol!

Question: How long after getting a cervix check should I still be spotting for? My appointment was at 11:15am and it's now 10:05pm and I'm still spotting.

Totally my opinion, not medical advise at all... Could be into the next day.

Is it mucousy?

I was feeling so anxious to get this started and now I am worried about having the flu in our house when the baby comes.

 

Oh no! how is she feeling now? 

 

My 2 yr old came down with a fever and no other symptoms this evening, tried to blame it on teething (she is getting 2 yr molars) but then i tried to feed her some toast for dinner and she threw up right away and i put her to bed..  i've been feeling like i'm coming down with a cold or something -- i am now completely for keeping the baby IN until this passes!

I ovulated on day 35ish this time - i was having cycles with late ovulation and a 6 day LP and then BAM pregnant ..  by LMP i was due over a week ago - in reality its a week from monday.. glad i keep track of these things - i also had an early u/s with a due date of a week from tomorrow..  i'm just going with the slightly later date for my mental health..   

 

i made another 20-something half pints of strawberry jam this afternoon.. froze another 12 pints of strawberries.. walked the mall this morning..  i can't believe i can be on my feet for basically all day and not be completely exhausted or have a baby just fall out of me..of course now with DD2 sick i don't want to do anything to encourage labor ... yet i have another fairly long list for tomorrow (i need to make corn muffins, biscuits (for strawberry 'short cake'), mop, clean bathrooms, laundry, etc)

So exciting! Have a restful night if you can.

I've been in bed lying awake for two hours now. Can't fall back asleep bc I feel nauseous. We ate dinner around 8 and its now 532 here and I feel like it just didn't digest and it just sitting there, burning, waiting to be thrown up ? Ultra uncomfortable bc I'm tired and have a busy day ahead of me. Contemplating f I should just try and see if my body wants to. I've been trying to hold it down, laying down it burns though. Ehhhhh!!!!!!!

I HATE that feeling. I had a lot of that from 30-35 weeks. My sympathies to you. Do you have a decent digestive tea or tonic around?

I had some nausea last night too, no fun! Hope you feel better now and are sleeping.

 

Today, I am so over pregnancy. I want a baby by the Superbowl. Soooo, any of you ever started labor super rapidly with NO signs other than extreme annoyance? Ha. A girl can dream.

post #119 of 195

lots of contractions yesterday evening, and regular ones for a little over an hour (from 4-5 AM ish) that kept me awake last night... they are feeling a lot more "real" too. On a scale of 1-10 (1 being braxton hicks and 10 being transition/pushing contractions) I'd say they were about a 3-4.. but I am wondering if my weak round ligaments are contributing to the pain and is totally tricking me out. I thought for sure (for the first time this pregnancy) that "this was it" this morning. oh well. :/

 

SO glad its the weekend, DH is home, and we have a few little things planned. And Monday morning I have my 40 week MW appt and Monday night we have a dinner DATE! So a few things to look forward to, to keep me busy if baby decides not to come in the next few days. :)

Oh my, this was totally me during the night!! I still feel sick and full at 8 this morning. :/ It seems like I just didn't digest my dinner. Yuck!
