Also, I just started sprouting up little red stretch marks.... ahhhh!
Whiner thread - Page 5
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."
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!
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!
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.
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!!
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.
So that's my big WAH WHINE of the day:
I AM HUGE AND ALL ALONE.
