Also, I just started sprouting up little red stretch marks.... ahhhh! 

post #82 of 124
I can't recognize my belly. It looks like one big stretch mark. I even got some on my hips and back. I feel disgusted when I look at it. I love seeing my big belly, with my cloths on, but I almost start crying when I take them off.....I never thought it would bother me, I really don't usually care what I look like. How do you other girls cope?

Sorry you're having a rough time with body image. I'm too tired to really care anymore. I know that stinks as far as being helpful but it's all I got lol
Big hugs to you beautiful mama!

If you go past your due day but are spot on about your LMP and the one US confirmed the dates what does this mean? I've never gone past a due date. Technically today is the magical day. I thought I was having some great contractions last night but I fell asleep hoping they would wake me up. The didn't. Trying to stay positive but I'm getting annoyed. My mom calls everyday wanting to know if there has been any 'progress'. Same with a few friends and MIL. Ugh.

Monkey pants. It's completely normal. Some babies need a little extra time to cook. It's frustrating, but your little one will be here before you know it. hug2.gif

 

My first 2 babies came before the EDD and my third came a week after.

I have pain just below my sternum, in the center of the very top of my stomach just below my bra line. Noticed it last night. Feels like a pulled muscle. Anyone else ever experience this? I am will be 39 weeks tomorrow.

I'm so tired of people asking when I'm going to have the baby considering that "whenever she wants to come out," doesn't seem to be a sufficient answer. The response is always "when is your due date?" I then go on a rant about healthy gestational periods varying and that I'm 39 weeks right now, which could mean I could go into labor NOW or in 3 weeks. There is normally a moment of silence and then "yeah but what day is your due date." Cuss.gifdizzy.gif

Lol. Stubborn people! So far everyone's been willing to accept my "July-early August" answer to that question, thank goodness. Though I know I will begin to feel pressure once August comes if there is still no baby!!
post #89 of 124

Oh man, there was almost some family drama earlier in my pregnancy when I wouldn't say more than "July." I am due right in the middle of the month, so I figure the whole month is/was game for her arrival. Thankfully, most people either figured it out or were okay accepting that I wasn't going to say anything more. But those people that kept pushing for the due date - gah! I feel your pain, inconditus!

I need to read some more birth stories!! C'mon babies!!!
post #91 of 124
Mine was trying to burrow out of my stomach butt first this afternoon and as that wasn't working, switched to really bearing down on my cervix with that little noggin. It was pretty comical but really uncomfortable. DH is making plans to go to a ball game about an hour away this coming weekend and I'm fully supporting it thinking Murphy's law might get me into labour! Lol

Oy. I'm a week overdue, awkward as all get out--and managed to dump an entire cup of coffee on my one nice outfit + the living room sofa today. I almost cried. We cleaned and cleaned, but the living room still smells of coffee. Thank goodness it was black, I guess....

Ellis, I had similar sternum pain as you Except it went away when the baby dropped. Before that it really hurt, like a shearing, torn muscle feeling. The baby is now super super dropped, my belly has been sitting in the tops of my thighs for weeks now and I've developed a super not-sexy pocket of fat right where my belly meets the Thighs. Ugh. It's like a jibbly, waggly, fat pocket that hangs when I look at it from the side. Wtf? Where did it come from? Will it go away? 7 days of serious Braxton hicks, emotional basket case, cramping... Thought for sure baby was coming. Nope. At 40 weeks now, had 3 strong real contractions last night, major cramping, BFF's with the toilet and poof! By morning, nothing. Tried to get my bf to DTD to speed things up and that was just pointless for a hundred reasons. Shouldn't have showed his where 0 station was 'cause baby is just too close for comfort, haha! Geesh. Really miss skinny sex. Pretty sure baby is never coming out. Sigh.

My pain went away too! So maybe my baby also dropped. I will ask my midwife when I see her tomorrow. 40 weeks! You're almost there!

Just wanted to chime in and say thank you to all you ladies who whine! I have been reading all the complaints, and it is so nice to know I'm not the only woman who has perfect enjoyable pregnancies.....mine are filled with misery with a great prize at the end.
post #96 of 124

It really is nice to see. I don't like being pregnant at all, but I love the fact that I'm pregnant.

I'M GOING TO BE THE LAST PREGNANT WOMAN ON EARTH!!! 

 

Ok, maybe just on this board and in my local meetup group.

 

Seriously though, locally, everyone was due in May/June and has babies at home and stopped coming to our walks and cafe meet ups, which is understandable, and while a few are starting to come back, it's with cute month-old babies that definitely do NOT help me remain patient waiting for my own!! lurk.gif

 

And here, I think me and rainbownurse are the last due, and I am going to be as frustrated as all you mamas due at the beginning of the month have been, but all alone and surrounded by baby pictures and birth stories to be jealous of. whistling.gif

 

So that's my big WAH WHINE of the day:

 

I AM HUGE AND ALL ALONE. eyesroll.gif

Cynthiamoon I feel like I'm right there with you and that I'll be pregnant forever. It just doesn't seem like this baby wants to come out although I have to remind myself that they all eventually do. And I'm not even to 40 weeks yet (39+2 today) so I shouldn't really complain. I saw my dr this morning and he said he doesn't intend to take any action other than waiting until 42 weeks, so as much as I don't want to go that long it was reassuring to feel like I'm not on the clock.
post #99 of 124

I had a total zen moment at the lake yesterday and have decided he will come when he's ready. 
Or, I'll just cross my legs so cynthiamoon isn't the last one to give birth.

I got my first "how far dilated are you" text today.

Rainbownurse those questions make me crazy!!! I've gone past my due date and when people ask when I'm due I say Now!! Had one smart ass actually ask if i was in labor right then. Uhhhhh.
