Soooo, looks like a few of our October mamas are going to birth in November. Hope you always consider yourselves "october mamas"!

I've updated the list and removed alot of names that we haven't heard from in ages. If anyone wants to be added back just PM me...

This just *might* be our last weekly thread here. Join us in the Life With a Babe forum as we continue this amazing journey together!

Hey, thanks Piglet for rubbing it in! Yes, it's November 1st, and still no baby in sight for me. 5 days late and no contractions. I'm growing bigger and grumpier by the day. I just want to meet this babe already. We've tried lots o' sex (much to Damian's delight!), nipple stimulation, and lots of walking. But nothing. Nipple stimulation brings on contractions for about an hour and then they stop. Walking does didly squat and sex, well, it makes DH smile, that's about it. It was so nice having Damian home for the weekend. I was able to rest and nap when I needed, but today he is back to work, and I have to be the parent. And all I want to do is crawl back in bed.

Trying really really hard to be patient....

Congrats on all the new babies. I skimmed the last thread but my mind is blanking on me...

Hang in there ladies!!!!

Oh crumb I just posted on last weeks thread.

Well, no baby for us yet. We had a mid-Ocober due date :LOL So I am over 2 weeks 'late'

Have tried cornsilk and homeopathic black and blue...not a darn thing :LOL

I have developed a terrible cough that causes me to gag and prevents me from talking easily. I told dh its hard to hold my crotch, head and cough at the same time. And I have got sore tummy muscles from coughing.

Once I get over the cough I have castor oil waiting should I get brave enough to try it...

My poor dh has been off work for a week waiting for this baby to come and taking care of me and the girls being my fuse is rather short. I feel badly for him burning his maternity leave and no baby.

to the other October mommies who are still waiting...

MomtoL&A- major s...to be so far overdue and also not feeling well...you poor thing!

Ah Soogie, you made me laugh..at least your DH has a smile on his face

Ember's birthday is Nov.6 so I think that Nov. is a good month to have a baby in too I posted labor vibes for you this morning in the other thread
post #6 of 82


YAY!!!! Another baby boom!

Congratulations Nancy, Amy and Sunshinegal!!!!!!!!!!!!

Welcome Henry, Lillian and Fiona!!!!!!!!!!!!!

: : : : :

Oh, Ekathrina, I sure hope this is it for you!!!!

momto l&a - I really hope you get your turn soon too, you've been waiting soooooo long! I think my son has that same cold. He has such a nasty cough! I bet that would be painful at 42 weeks!!!!

Soogie, :LOL Hope your attempts to start labour will soon be successful, but at least you have a happy hubby in the meantime!

November is great! My son was also a November baby!

Maybe we should say October/November mamas. Well, it had to be some of the later Oct ones inevitably. It wasn't gonna be the kid tho. That baby wasn't even going to be born on the 31!

I let d ()h have it. I feel better now. :LOL I think I might move the changing table in the living room. Then everybody who wants to see can and not all my laundry and messy dresser.

I have to visit LWAB! after diapering. I need to wash dipes today! :
post #8 of 82
Oh Piglet is on the ball as usual and I posted on the other thread....

Still here...guess this baby didn't want to be an October baby after all...

Tried lots of "natural inducers" these last few days and nada, nothing I know, I know, when the baby is ready...but that does get old doesn't it!!??
And then DH has the nerve to tell me that he cleared his schedule to take this week off but "can't" take next week off because of his meeting schedule so I better hurry up! Oh the foolish man...he should know better than to say something so dumb and maddening! I just gave him "the look"

So just waiting and need to get a new "going home" outfit since the other one was a pumpkin outfit!

So happy for all you mamas holding your babies Enjoy!

to you, pregnant mamas!

Momto l&a, I would really recommend avoiding the castor oil, but that's just based on my experience last week. It really was a nightmare for me. Pooping during hard contractions is not fun at all. It was probably the most unpleasant experience of my life! Of course, maybe you have done it before, and had a different time.

Gotta go, Levi wants his nursers.....
post #11 of 82
Just have a bit of time to send CONGRATS and welcome to babies Tara, Lillian and Fiona!!! : : :

And to those still waiting, I hope it all starts soon for you!

Hey.........................I'm not on the roll call!

Well.I just found out that my mom erased my entry to all of you. I was writing to let you know Angelo Richard had arrived!

He was born on Oct 22 at 140am 7lbs 10 oz 20 in long

I wrote a huge letter to all of you but Angelo needed to nurse. So I ran in the other room to nurse him........having trouble doing two things at one time still........my mom got on the computer. I asked her if she posted my message and she said yes.

I just started reading last weeks posts and apparrently she did something wrong. I had no post!

I haven't been on except like twice since he was born. Congrats to all of the mommas who have had there babies. Birthing Vibes to those who have babies that are so comfy in the tummy they don't want to come out! They will soon. They just don't realize how fun it is out here.

I will post Angelo's birth story and pic soon!

You're on, AngelBee! Congrats on your son!!
post #14 of 82
Well life with babe is fun. Very challenging but very fun. I had two days of anxiety attacks and freaking out how in the world am I going to do this but now i feel better. Tara developed jaundice. We have to have her on the bili blanket (since there isn't much for sunlight) so needless to say waking her up to nurse is quite fun. : I have to say I like the ped. we picked out. He is really nice.

I read some tlak about natural vs pitocin induction. Now that I have expreince w/ both I much prefer a castor oil induction than a pitocin one. I'll post my birth story soon. Happy birthday to all the new babes!

Happy laboring to all you mommas left. You have my strongest labor vibes going your way.
post #15 of 82
YAY!!! Congratulations Angela and welcome Angelo!!!!!!


Momma2Liam - Sorry to hear that your little one is jaundiced. I hope she will be better soon! I know what you mena about no sunlight! It's been gloomy and gray here for most of the past 2 weeks! Can't wait for another truly sunny day!

Ekathrina has didn't post at all last night, hmmmmmmm . . . .

Congratulations AngelBee!!!!

: Welcome to the world Angelo!!!!!!!!!!

Poor little Harrison was soooo gassy last night. I had a falafel for lunch, which was very very yummy by the way, but my poor little guy paid for it dearly. He would begin to relax and fall asleep and then all of a sudden his eyes would pop open and he'd strat to wriggle around and make little fussy noises. I would change his position he would have a little burp and spit up a bit and then fuss until he drifted back into a light uncomfortable sleep. This went on for almost 2 hours. Finally at 11:30pm he gave up 2 humoungus burps and fell dead asleep for the night. Didn't even wake up to nurse until 5am.

Congrats and Angela and welcome little Angelo!!! I have been wondering about you! :

Oh and I too would recommend the castor oil over pitocin.

Ekatherina...I am hoping this is it for you
post #18 of 82
Hey yeah where is Ekatherina? I hope she's MIA 'cause she's holding a sweet little baby right now.
post #19 of 82
Ah Harrison, you poor gassy boy!

I keep expecting Willow to get fussy and gassy or something. My diet has been terrible, darn that halloween candy!!! I can't stop eating tons of chocolate because it's just so tasty!!! Luckily it doesn't seem to be affecting her (knocking on wood). I need to go eat something healthy now.
