So - how many of us are still pregnant?

post #1 of 58
Thread Starter 
Seems like we've been birthing babies like crazy around here - just wondering how many of us are still playing the waiting game?

Any predictions for those still pregnant - do you think you'll birth early/on time/late? I'm still guessing this will be an August baby myself.....although I can hold out hopes that I'm wrong I'm having belly photos taken tomorrow, want to go to my birth circle on Thursday night, still need to get a belly cast done and have my Blessingway scheduled for Saturday. I figure - as of Sunday - I'm ready (and I'll be exhausted)!

I'm still happily waiting. Our washer and dryer both broke on the 4th and the new ones don't get delivered until this coming Friday. I'm duct taping my knees together if I have to, this baby is not getting out until I can wash and dry laundry again. I'll be 39 weeks tomorrow and I think this baby will be late. At least I'm hoping for late. My calendar is still super full and I just don't have time to have a baby! :LOL

I am still here - tomorrow is exactly 2 weeks to my due date. I have all the major stuff done - had belly pics, baby shower, got a new *family* sized vehicle, mostly caught up at work. Just have the little things like putting the car seat in, packing my bag, washing CDs, washing some baby gowns, etc. which I should be able to get to this week/weekend.

DH is home til Thurs AM for the All Star Break then leaves for a 12 game road trip coming back to AZ ON my due date! Talk about nerve wracking! Luckily he wont be far (Vegas, Tacoma and Sacramento). So we wont be making any more trips to Tucson till after the baby arrives which gives me lots of time to obsess about getting things done at home.

My last day of work is the 22nd. I have been SUPER crampy and having a few contractions off and on. I change my mind every day - feel like she is coming soon then feel like it will be Aug. Who knows!? If its not before Thurs AM then I am content to wait til the 26th or later when DH will be close to home.

Ah Morgan, I'm sorry he has to hit the road again - hopefully it will all work out so he makes it back in plenty of time. Hey - if our babies make us wait, maybe we can finally get together after you're done work!

BTW - how did your pictures turn out - we're going to the same place, so I'm eager to hear about your experience

Emily - the picture of you with knees duct taped together waiting for a washer and dryer cracked me up!

Oh you will love Brenda - she is sooo sweet! I havent seen my pics yet - I am hoping tomorrow as that is 2 weeks since I had them done.

I would love to get together - I have a feeling this baby wont be here by the 22nd so after that we have a date! I will pm you my cell number later.

I'm still pregnant. I think this baby will be born July 20th.
Thats my guess.

I am due on the 18th, a week from today. I think I have everything we need for baby, although I have no idea how to install the carseat properly. I'm waiting for the nesting urge to grab me, so that I'll want to make and freeze a lot of postpartum meals. A while back, I had a dream that the baby would be born on July 29th. Well, that's 11 days past my due date, but I feel fine and wouldn't mind waiting that long, since it would be awesome if that really happened!

The full moon is July 21st, just so all you all who haven't delivered by then know..

Still here. I'm due the 29th, and I know the date is accurate because I was doing BBT, so know when I ovulated. Not that it really means anything, because she'll come when she's fully cooked, and only she knows when that is, lol. But at least uncertainty due to time of conception isn't an issue.

DH thinks I'll go on the 24th. A friend today said she thinks it will be the 26th. I really have no idea. A part of me thinks 8/3, but I'm not really positive. I'm hoping it will be at or before 40 weeks, so I can avoid the whole annoying thing of people calling constantly and asking if we've had the baby yet, lol.

Still here, too. I'm due the 22nd. It's the 12th here, so 10 days to go. I'm trying not to make any major predictions. I thought during most of the pregnancy that I would give birth sometime before my due date, but now I wouldn't be surprised to go over a week or so. Today is dd's birthday, although we don't have any plans to celebrate until her Hebrew birthday, but it doesn't look like she and the new one will share a birthday on either calendar unless things get busy soon. Still, it's only noon here, so anything is possible. :LOL

Yep. : Still here. After contractions 5 minutes apart for a few hours and mucus plug galore. Nothing.

I'm still here

38 weeks today. If it doesn't happen in the next two days, it has to wait until after Sunday (we have a wedding!).

Still here! I'll be 39 weeks on Wed, due date is next Thursday. All through this pregnancy I felt like I was going to deliver early, now...... who knows.

I am not having any type of pre-labor stuff going on at the moment but don't recall having much with my son either. This is just the part where I am not good at being patient.

Still pregnant... I'm due on the 20th, but don't really have any clue... I was saying the 8th, DH was thinking the 12th, and really next week would be much better for me. My first was a day early, and exactly 9 months after conception, my second was 10 days late, my third was 4 days late, so I don't really expect this one to be early.

Yup, still pregnant here too! No signs of prelabor, just getting bigger and more cranky and achey (esp. pubic bone and back). I'm due on the 27th, but I have a feeling I'm going to be later! Bleh.

I'm still here. Baby's due date is the 28th.

I'm hoping that the baby is comfy enough to stay put until late July and my BP remains under control as I have a pet bird that has just had a collar put on and needs to be on for at least a week (needs to monitored during this time to make sure he doesn't get his feet or collar caught).

I can't have my parents bird sit as planned as one of their birds is sick and I and other birds can't go near it for 6 weeks.

There is no one else that I trust or everyone else works.

Fingers crossed this baby stays put until late July.

Still preggo here! Had another day of useless, go nowhere contractions Sunday and just realized I have had a few contractions in the past few. I would 'like' to say that it will be less then 2 weeks until he's born but who knows.

That is what I am counting on!

I am 38 weeks today and no sign of any action at all. DS was born on his due date, so I expect something similar to happen this time.

Still here - still pregnant - so I am 39 weeks tomorrow and feel that babe could come this weekend - my dh, girlfriend think so too - I am sort of hoping but I still have the feelings that babe could arrive on dd's birthday! Sometimes I feel like it could be anytime now and then the next within 3 or 4 weeks - it's getting abit depressing really - I'm ready to hold my baby on the outside - MW coming for monitoring tomorrow so I might ask her how 'far' along she thinks I am.

Getting abit done on the pregnancy side of things and all the limitations - but once the babe comes it's just limitations of a different sort!!!! Just want to nurse and have him to hold, really want to hold him - goodness I'm starting to sound a bit desperate!!!!
