As it turned out, I didn't have time to post in this thread. Labor took just under 5 hours!!! Baby Girl arrived 10 days early on Sunday AM.
"I'm in labor!" thread - May 2013 DDC - Page 3
My EDD was May 1. So at least I didn't have to worry about going longer than 40 weeks and being induced...such a relief!
7 lb 11 oz (exactly what the ultrasound estimated a week prior)
Whole lot of cuteness!
We're doing great. The good thing about delivering at 5:44 AM is that they had no problem discharging us after only one night. It is so much nicer to be at home.
I will post more in the Birth Stories thread....

Congrats Phils and Pace, that's great! I still think I am in shock that I will also be holding my own soon... I keep telling DH we are in D-E-N-I-A-L
Us too.....mayyyyyyj denial. We are still crossing off things from our to do list which is still quite lengthy and just tonight we washed and folded onesies together and were both in shock at how small!
I puked this morning and my stool was loose. I started to get excited that maybe my body was getting ready, a little early. Then I remembered that DH had an upset stomach and yucky stools yesterday. Oh these last weeks. Silly me. No signs of anything which is best. I find myself oscillating between not feeling ready and "Oh my gosh, get this thing out of me." My brain is still not grasping that it's an actual BABY in there.
Part of my problem was I never felt a contraction last time until I was hooked to the pitocin drip! I don't really know what the early ones feel like? I haven't told my sister to drive down yet.
i keep false labouring (like contractions 3-5 minutes apart.. back pain all sorts..) then stopping again..still having mucous plug coming out and sometimes bits of blood.. but seems ok for now.. altho seeing ob on mon to potentally talk about induction (im due may 9th) congrats kate, philsbabymama and paceman so happy you all have healthy beautiful babys :) xxx
Oooh, jealous of you mama's due sooner than me. Baby is loooooowwwww in my pelvis and I'm starting to feel really "pregnant" for the first time this nine months ... waddling, exhausted, sore belly. I'm really hoping she comes "early"- anytime after 37 weeks is fine by me. Getting everything done in the next week or so (I'm 35 weeks now) and keeping my fingers crossed .... will keep walking a ton, cramming down pineapple, and hoping for the best. Unfortunately will probably have to start having sex soon :/
