Kail, I'm pulling for you!!!! I remember that stress just a week or so ago. We closed on our house aug 12. I've been effaced for months now so I hope it means you've got a few more weeks to get settled!
In Labor or Warming Up for Labor Thread - Page 5
Livingsky; good luck!
It's so frustrating that nothing is happening here. I'm due on the first day of the month yet everyone seems to be ahead of me! I woke up this morning with literally no energy; getting out of the chair is too much effort. That's what I really hate right now; being so heavy and tired and completely lacking any form of energy. I just wish my body would get a move on, but there is no sign at all. Ugh.
Hope to meet this little one today!
Today I had some very intense braxton-hicks after doing some shopping. They were very low and felt different than the BH I have been experiencing, as not only did it make me very short of breath, like I just couldn't get enough air in, but it felt like I had a belt on that just kept cinching tighter. The first one lasted over a minute and then I had another one 10 minutes later that lasted about 30 seconds or so. After I got in the car and sat down, things started to normalize. Baby has been very active these last few days. S/he dropped last week and I am feeling a lot of pressure down below now, stools are softer and I am experiencing a lot more mucous. I think things are starting to move in the right direction.
I'd love some of that energy this way if your up for sharing
letniaLynne- FWIW, when my mom was pregnant with my brother, she walked the zoo the day before her water broke and she went into labor. Fingers crossed for you!
I'll be 37w tomorrow. I went into labor with my 1st the night before I was 37w as well, so I figure anything can happen!
I've had a few contractions here and there throughout the weekend, but nothing worth getting excited about. I just hope I can keep my laid back view of not really caring when I finally do go into labor for the next few weeks-but I'm optimistic because with my other ones I was already antsy by now.
While stupidly trying to rock my daughter to calm her down I feel a little gush. It turns out I had to go sit on the toilet because I feel like I'm peeing myself. Embarrassing. I ignore it. Now it's happened again. It smells like pee but a little sweetish. Worrying. I'm only 35 weeks!
Someone posted a very good set of things to determine if your water is breaking or lol it's just incontinence. Hoping its the latter... Google isn't helping me. Ugh. It's 1am! I am going to try and go to bed but worrying...
Tilly; I hope it's nothing to worry about, good luck!
Livingsky; that must be so frustrating! I hope the contractions pick up soon. On the positive side, I read that it could mean a quicker first stage of labour which is always good!
I was 39 weeks yesterday and not a sign to be had. I ate curry and DTD, and all that happened was I had a really bad night's sleep and hallucinated about My Little Pony. I think it's pointless for us to DTD anyway because isn't it the sperm you need to get things going? Well thanks to those bloody things that might or night not be warts, we have to use condoms. I really am doomed to be late.
