post #21 of 281

I'm 32 weeks and honestly hoping I go early. I'm just done being pregnant and I don't think I can last another 8 weeks. I was not this "done" with either of my 1st two - but I feel so big and uncomfortable and like I should be farther along that I'm just done. I know being uncomfortable is no reason for baby to come early, every pregnant woman is uncomfortable, but yeah 8 more weeks is gonna KILL me! Could be even longer too as DS2 was 11 days past his due date before I went into labor.

 

With both my babies I went walking at the mall to try to induce natural labor then went home and took a nap, waking up to my water breaking both times. Well DS1 my water broke the next day. Maybe I'll go mall walking this weekend...LOL.

LOL, no mall walking for 5 weeks, missy! 

I'm in this mindset I'm having Calliope early, though I bet 37,38,39,and 40 weeks are going to pass me by haha. Part of me thinks if I don't go in early April, I won't have her until May.

jeez I feel the same way at almost 31 weeks. I just want to be done being pregnant. My outlook is probably more realistic at 5-6 weeks than 8+ but we'll see!

(((HUGS))) Bedrest makes it SOOO much harder! I spent about a month on bedrest with my last pregnancy (had a subchorionic hemorrhage, but baby held on, praise God!!) and it seriously felt like ten million years. So miserable. Rest assured you are NOT an awful mom!! Carrying a baby for nine months is HARD WORK and I think we're supposed to feel DONE towards the end of it!

I have been feeling so done too. Although I am not uncomfortable at all other than some indigestion and heartburn. I'm just mentally done, like senior slack in High School. But when I think about that really baby could come anytime in April, and today is March 1st, I know I should just enjoy my time hauling around 1 kid and not doing the newborn thing quite yet. Like today I went to the bank, gas station, grocery store, had a massage and chiro adjustment, and now can just dink around getting little things done around the house and none of that would be happening if I had a newborn at the moment. Plus, I still need to get a pedicure! haha.

Thanks! And it sure does make it hard! I was talking to my grandmother the other day and telling her how "done" I was... And she reminded me of me saying the exact same thing back at 28 weeks! LOL and I've made it 7 more weeks... So I suppose I can do a little while longer...

I would kind of like to go anytime after term (37w) which I hit March 22nd. That being said... I know I could go beyond the 40w but my OB won't likely let me go beyond 41w which I'm okay with with one exception. If I'm not softening/dilating then I will be resistant to induction because I do not want to end up with a c-section. I also realize that by that point I might not care anymore and just want the baby out. It's all so crazy to think about because we really have no idea what will happen.

Mine previous babies have been on time. My midwife is flying across the country for 5 days the day after I hit 38 weeks.  I'd really like to be 39 weeks plus before I have this one! So maybe this one will be right on time like the others. Realistically, this should be my last baby so I'm really not in a rush.

I am getting to be SO EAGER to find out who's gonna go next!!! I am 37w3d so someone here has gotta be like 38w1d if my math is right!  WHERE ARE THE BABBIES?  :)

post #34 of 281
I keep having bloody show, but that's about it other than baby moving around whenever I touch the top of my belly (which she so does NOT like hehe!) Its not a whole lot, just some when I wipe.

Brooklyn, firespirit is due the 29th, so I think she is just ahead of you if I'm correct.

Yes, she is late March!  So technically she is even further along than someone due on 4/1 would be.

 

Bloody show is pretty darn promising...although I know you don't want an emergency section!

Yeah, we've got some pretty comfy babies in there! I think they are all waiting until it's spring, which is officially tomorrow, though it's still so cold! I'm only 34-2 now, but I'm really thinking it will be in the 38s, since that's my typical pattern. I'm curious if I'm dilated at all, since I'm usually at least 4cm at the beginning of my 9th. I won't check until then, I don't want to rock the boat and I guess I don't really want to know yet...it would make me too nervous.

Baby is comfy over here lol ironically! NEVER EVER thouht I'd still be pregnant at this point LOL I'm 38 weeks 1 day today and just got back from the doctor and I've basically made NO progress since last week! I'm still just barely 1cm.... She did say tho I was a bit "mushy" and last week I was "firm" soooo I guess that's a little progress? Lol after all we did to keep her inside! This.is.hilarious. LOL!

I hit 37 weeks this upcoming Friday and I'm good to go at any point after that... I can't believe no one else has gone yet either!

post #39 of 281

I agree that our babies are comfy! I just don't feel like mine is going to be ready terribly soon. I'm 37w4d and people are starting to ask when I'm due and commenting on how enormous my belly is. Today I told a woman that it'll probably be at least 2 weeks and she disagreed! lol I guess time will tell :-) I'm not feeling rushed about it. With DD I was SO done being pregnant at this point, but this time I'm really still enjoying it. I feel pretty good. Mostly just tired, but that's bearable. I think I just know it'll be a little tough to adjust to having 2. We'll work it out, though!
