The max he would have let me go is to the 18th but I allowed to be admitted on the 11th. I'm feeling okay about it and I'm just anxious to have her here. Though it's not surprising that this morning I woke up leaky and nauseas. Maybe she'll come on her own before tomorrow night/Friday morning!
Hopefully your feelings this morning are/will lead to your little one coming on her own, but either way, I hope you have a peaceful, smooth labor and delivery! Good luck!

The night before I had one VERY strong transition-like ctx when I laid back down after going pee (that is exactly how my previous labors started), but that was all I got. I've been contracting today but just lightly, mostly BH-like, not really crampy at all. Been back and forth to the toilet and just had some more red-bloody CM...although I'm thinking that after the several times I've had that in the last month it is just one more thing that would mean something for everyone BUT me. LOL The last couple times I've checked my cervix over the past couple days it has usually remained stringy red bloody CM but this is the first time in a little while that it's actually come OUT. LOL
At least I know not to get my hopes up much anymore.... I still hope I go very soon instead of waiting, as like I mentioned in a previous post, little one's u/s measurements (which were right on last time for DS, and are almost identical to each other) put baby at 40+ weeks in size already. Hoping that could be off a bit, or I go right away. LOL
I've been the same way, 1babysmom. I've never gone on my own, so every little thing, I'm like, "What is this?" "Is this something to think about?" "What's going on??" and probably driving myself crazy in the process. When the lady at WIC asked my due date, I told her the 27th, and then said, "But I'd be okay to go now." and she said, "We don't want you to go too early." I was like... "I'm almost 38 weeks, unless by some miracle I have a (super quick) spontaneous going into labor, I won't be having this baby before I'm 38 weeks, so I'm pretty okay with saying that." It would be a welcome change between DD, who was born at 35 weeks, 5 days and super tiny, and DS, who was born at 41 weeks, 5 days, and twice DD's size. I'm pretty excited for baby to get her, finally, I think.
