Is anyone else still waiting?

post #1 of 29
Thread Starter 
My EDD isn't until the 20th, but I'm getting impatient with all of these March babies arriving. I'm afraid it will be April before I get to see her.

Just feeling sorry for myself.

I know EXACTLY how you feel! I, too, am due March 20. I even lost my plug along with bloody show (sorry TMI) last Thursday. On March 7th I was 2.5 cm dialted and 25% effaced at -2 station, then March 14 I was still 2.5 cm dialted 50% effaced but went -3 station!! I am going in reverse. This is my 3rd baby and I never thought I'd have to wait until my EDD. Oh well...I guess they will come when they are good and ready....lol. It's so tough waiting though isn't it? My 2 little DD's are just as anxious as I am waiting, DH is driving me nuts too...lol. Good luck to you, hopefully we won't have to wait much longer, I mean really it's the 17th already!!!! Happy St.Patty's Day!
39w4d......3days to go!!!

Yep. I'm due on the 21st, but dd came at 39w4d, and I went into labor at 39w3d... so in about eight hours, I'm going to start thinking of this baby as officially 'late.' I really was not mentally prepared for this, and I'm in SUCH a bad place, mentally.

I'm here too, and I probably will be for a while. I'm not due 'til the 23rd and my babies were born 3 weeks and 10 days past their due dates, respectively. So, I'm not even expecting to go into labor until the last week of March at the earliest. I could be an April Mama too!

I did have an internal exam today, and am fully effaced, 2 cm dilated, and the babies head is right in there! So conditions are great once things start rolling!

This is likely to be my last pregnancy, so I'm trying to enjoy the remainder of my time. I probably won't ever do this again, so I'm savoring it!

Good thing I'm still feeling great! It would be a lot harder to keep up this attitude if I was feeling crappy!

Count me in -- my EDD is the 21st, but my first dd was born at 38weeks and 6 days, so I figured this baby would be early too. In addition, labor with dd #1 was sudden and obvious...menstrual-type cramps every 20 minutes for 2 hours, then my water broke and I had a fast labor. With this pregnancy, I've had menstrual-type cramps off and on every day for the past 2 weeks!! I keep swearing I'm about to go into labor (usually at night), only to have nothing happen.

I'm feeling sorry for myself too.

Hang in there!

I guess misery loves company.

I was convinced labor was impending. My contractions have gotten closer together and I woke up in the middle of the night and immediately started to clean.

Don't laugh - I was worried that my friend who was coming over to take care of DS would be horrified to find out that I hadn't done the dishes. I not only did the dishes - I did laundry, reorganized the bookshelves, did paperwork, cleaned the downstairs bathroom, and finished our taxes. I would have vacuumed and cleaned the upstairs bathroom, but I was afraid DH would be annoyed if I woke him up (or at least think I was crazy).

You might think I was nesting, but I periodically do things like this. Unfortunately, it was probably just me being me. No baby yet anyway.

Yep, STILL waiting. I've said before...ds was born at 38w0d so, I was mentally done over a week ago. I am now 39w1d. I just didn't think I'd still be pregnant. I want this baby here already. I just feel like I am sitting around waiting for something to happen. I do not have the patience or stamina to chase around my 2.5 year old anymore.

I have a mw appt. tomorrow morning. I hope she can help me with this excrutiating one-sided back pain. I suspect the back of babe's head is pressing there and things will get started as soon as this one can rotate to a more favorable position...does this sound plausible? Any suggestions for getting this one rotated into an optimal position? TIA.

Still here too. I am not due until the 23rd and each pg has gotten a bit longer so I am totally expecting an April baby. Doesn't make the wait any easier tho.

Mamadaisy--Go see a chiropractor and ask for the Webster technique. That will really help move that babe!
post #9 of 29
Yep, here I sit,twiddling my thumbs, just waiting. I'm due next week ...but I'm very ready NOW!
post #10 of 29
Still here! Also not due till next week. I wouldn't mind going into April but my mom will be here next week (staying about a week) and I'd really like baby to arrive around the same time she does!
post #11 of 29
I'm still waiting too! I'm okay with it though. When I was pregnant with my daughter I was ALL wound up, this time I feel like a different person.

Warning: pity party in progress

I'm still here, too. EDD was Wednesday. I really thought this baby would be here either weds or thurs. Woke up thurs with regular cx, but they stopped after an hour. Now, I'm just sitting and waiting. My mom is here until Monday, then she flies back to Fla and I won't see her again probably until July, if then. I want this baby to come while she is here. Had LOTS of cx last night and was vaguely nauseous, so I was thinking maybe last night, but here I am still this morning.

This baby likes to torture me ALREADY and she isn't even born yet!

Okay, pity party over.

I am STILL HERE TOO! My EDD was March 10th and here it is the 19th. I think I might just freak out. Then I think, "oh maybe I'll just be pregnant forever." I have gone through every emotion available--please come baby!!!
post #15 of 29
Me too! I'm still waiting!!
My EDD is today, but I guess it's not gonna happen today..
post #16 of 29
I have officially given up thinking I'm going to actually have this baby. Guess you could call me impatient, since my due date is on Monday, so it's not as though I'm overdue or anything. Just tired of waiting, and tired of thinking "today might be the day!" only to have it not be.

I'm basically just a big cranky ornery moody mess, and will probably stay that way until I actually go into labor.

I'm still, still waiting. I swear if I have to answer the question "when are you going to have this baby?" one more time, someone's going to get a pen in the eye.

Hey, that's pretty mild!

I made dh preemptively call or email his parents today. I told him that unless he wanted to see how 'not pretty' the results would be when they called or emailed me (since today is the 'official' due date), he ought to head them off.

Have already gotten two 'checking in' IMs from him, one phone call from my mom, and an email from a friend...

I got so mad that people kept calling that now I am calling them.

Really just my parents and a couple of close friends. Everyone else just gets ignored if I recognize the name on the caller ID. Not very polite but it's starting to get stressful. People all around me are pushing for induction. It makes me so mad!
