post #1 of 30
Thread Starter 
Ok if I get any bigger you can poke my arms and legs in and I will be a beach ball... My dr literally giggled at me and said "oh you poor women"

umm yeah thanks I know I am a big ball of baby!


I feel like I am in labor and have been in labor forever.... I have contractions all the time... then they stall for a few hours... come back... stall... at least I am not on tributaline anymore yay!!!!

Even having gas makes me think i am in labor... I know all about labor I have done it a few times lol

But now everyone is just staring at me waiting for me to either Burst or scream... I feel like doing both.

On the bright side it won't be much longer.


How are you other mamas doing?>

You are doing great w/ twins! Congrats on making it this long. I'm 36 wks w/ my one (#3 though) and I'm so w/ you. Random ctxs, but not as bad as last time when I was on bedrest so I understand you there. I had ctxs for weeks before finally going into labor! Good luck!

I have 5 more days before I"m 36wks....that's if I use 'my' due date of 17 Nov...but I'm thinking this baby may be a few days past that--we dtd 3 days before I expected ovulation--so maybe 20th of Nov would be a better estimate. SO, I'm just 35 wks I guess...
I'm feeling better now--after the stomach flu...and I like the aches and pains of Pg MUCH better than stomach flu!!!!

I'll be 36 weeks in about 60 seconds =)

I'm actually still doing really well (please don't hurt me, mamas!). Zy dropped on Thursday, but my son dropped (the first time) about the same time - give or take a day - and he still made me wait almost 6 more weeks. So I'm not getting my hopes up or anything.

I'm really hoping s/he'll stay put until November. I'm not ready, my MIL won't be here for a few more weeks to help with R and the house stuff... she gets here the 7th and I keep saying the 8th is the earliest I want to go! We'll see, though.

I really need to start getting things ready, though... pull the co-sleeper out from under my son's bed and get it in our room, pack the hospital bag, get the second car seat installed in the car (I'm hoping to hold off on that until toward the end of the month - because my front seat has to get pushed up a lot further for that to fit rear facing). I finished Zy's blanket this morning, I want to get a few more crafty things done... ugh! It's fun when you're not feeling a time crunch - but I'm definitely feeling one now!

I had a really funny thing happen this week. I've said before that my doctor is only at my rural clinic twice a month - so now that I'm going to weekly appointments, I have to go into the city to the main clinic for some of them. I got a call from the main clinic the other day that they needed to reschedule my appointment on the 23rd. No biggie. So I called them back 15 minutes later, and the girl said she could schedule me for November 1st. Poor thing, I laughed at her. I even apologized for it. I explained that these were already the weekly appointments for prenatal care and that my 38 week appointment was on the 30th... so going on the 1st for the week previous didn't make any sense. I said if that was really the only openning they had, I'd just skip it. She went and talked to my doctor's nurse and the nurse said to talk to Dr. P at my next appointment. This is why I made all my appointments already at the main clinic (and why I don't really like going there). They are SO busy. Good sign, I guess, because that means that a lot of people think Dr. P is great - I can't argue them there! So I think I'm going to propose that I go over to the rural clinic on the 23rd, have my nurse do the normal weight and BP check, I'll do the little pee in a cup thing, and have the PA do the measure the baby and listen for heart beat. The only compromise I'm asking for is no internal exam that day... I'm trying to get away with as few of those as possible anyway.

Hope y'all are doing well!

I think I am losing my plug...

and no im not sure because I never noticed it with my others.... I have this stringy white stuff. (so sorry if this is tmi) im not sure if this is my plug or not? i always thought it would have blood in it?

i guess it doesn't mean much though!
post #6 of 30
m2tm - that may be the plug - or at least the start of it. I noticed that the night before (11pm) I lost the same kind of thing with blood tinges in it (4 am).

Yay for babies coming!!!!!!!

I'm closing in on 37 weeks so I'm right there with you!
post #8 of 30
I'm almost to 38 weeks, my EDD is Halloween so I'd been hanging out on Oct and Nov boards. I thought baby was coming sooner rather then later (dd was born right at 38 weeks), but now I'm getting the feeling that this baby is pretty comfy inside.
post #9 of 30
I feel like I'm in labor every night to end up falling asleep and of course no baby. I'm at the earliest 37 weeks 4 days but because of when I ovulated I'm more like 38 weeks. And this baby is looowwwww. I've been losing my plug too and no bloody show with it. We are all getting close, wooohoo!!

I'm 37 weeks or so...

Just feeling alot of pressure. Suddenly, I am moving like a turtle and get tired easily. Nothing bad though.....I am really enjoying this pregnancy :
post #11 of 30
Don't hate me, but I'm actually feeling really great at 36. Nothing too uncomfy to deal with. No contractions at all, but that's how it usually goes. I still think this baby will come sooner than later.
post #12 of 30
At 37 wks I'm actually feeling pretty good. Back aches, hip pain and constant BH really aren't keeping me down as much this pregnancy. Maybe it's because I've been more careful with my weight this time(had so much left over from last time...I didn't need much extra!! )
But I'm still ready to get this show on the road!! DH is freaking out about having the midwife in our messy house.....but if I "popped" tomorrow I'd be happy!

LOL I love that all you mamas that are feeling good say :don't hate me: thats adorable!

last night I took my socks off and noticed this HUGE indentation both my legs where so swollen that it looked like big tree trunks on little feet... my dh got worried and tried to make me call my dr... I didn't because I am not feeling any of the other stuff like headaches or cramps ... just contractions here and there today.

34ish weeks here.

Let's see

Major ctx a few times a day
complete exhaustion coupled with roaming-around-the-house-at2-am insomnia
BAD acid reflux that also keeps me up
dropped baby
and a bad case ofthe grumpies!

But everything is going well!
post #15 of 30
Just about 37 weeks... (once I get to Tuesday I'm all clear to deliver at the birth center, but most likely I'll end up over 40 wks)

Sometimes I feel great, other times I feel like crap... these last few days in Florida the weather has finally cooled down (umm, like to the 70s and 80s!) so I can actually open the windows and freshen up the house.

My dh is so so impatient for the baby to come. I keep reminding him that "Booboo's gonna pick his birthday" and "Don't tell me to bring him on faster; I've got no say in it!" I could easily go six more weeks so I'm just trying to keep chill and not expect that he's gonna come early. Plus the later he comes the more hypnobirthing practice I get before labor!

Losing the mucous plug slowly but Baby hasn't dropped though...I'm not exactly looking forward to feeling like there's a bowling ball between my legs!

I have so much to do before december but I don't even know where to start--we're moving in mid december and so everything has to be packed. And we have hundreds of books, many hardbacks which are NO fun to have to pack up. I get a little : just thinking about it but am too lazy to do anything.

Glad to hear from everyone again!!!! Babies are near!!! I can't wait to hear everyone's birth stories and see pics of all the newbies!!!

I am almost 36 weeks and I must say that I am feeling pretty good. I think that has a lot to do with our new king size bed we just bought about a month or so ago! I am pretty grumpy though and wish I could see into the future so I can see exactly what day I will be having this baby so I can tell DP when to take time off of work!! I really don't want to drive myself 2 hours while in labor so I must say I can see why some people choose to be induced (not something I would EVER do). No BH contractions at all (didn't have any with the first two either), I don't think the baby has dropped yet, and no show of mucous plug.

Anyway, hope things continue to go well for everyone!! Have a great last month!!

I will be 36 weeks tomorrow... am pretty emotional and wish me and dh could keep it together... we were doing fine for a while, but now he can't handle my emotions and I can't just stop being emotional... my midwife did a nonstress test when I was worried about the baby the other day, and while it came out "fine" both she and the other midwife felt a "heaviness" to it that they didn't like and she talked to me about ways I could relieve stress/guilt, etc. so that I wouldn't be affecting the baby so much... I feel really without my dh's support in this right now though, and am really struggling with how to relieve my stress on my own and with tension between dh and I.... I have to go take another nonstress test in a little bit, I hope the baby is feeling better, though with how I feel right now I would be surprised.... ug.

I'm 34w2d and I feel like a giant. I feel like one of those weeble-wobble toys. I think she may have dropped yesterday because I am definately having the bowling ball between my legs feeling. I am having tons of BHs, some that are really uncomfortable. I think this little one may come a little early. I have had dreams that I am in labor every night for the past 5 nights. Something just feels different. This may be a gross question but when you lose your plug is their a different odor to it compared to regular discharge? Also does amniotic fluid have a distinct odor? I guess I am just scared I will start to leak fluid and think it is pee-maybe that's silly but I've never done this before and I am pretty incontinent right now so I do have plenty of gushes of fluid.

Dh and I have been pretty tense. Everything he does is driving me nuts!! I don't know if it is him or me but I am having moments of thinking that there is just no way I can spend one more day with him. I have just been trying really hard to focus my attention on bonding with Lily before she is born and remembering that whatever happens with Dh I will soon having the most precious thing in the world and all the joy that she will bring.

I'm just about 36 weeks and feeling pretty good. I was sick last week with a stomach bug and its taken awhile to get back to "normal" but I'm DEFINETLY feeling a lot more tired these days. I can't believe we're almost here. These last weeks will probably fly by but I want them to go kind of slow since I'm not all that ready but ready too, if that makes sense. I'm excited to hear about all the new babies as they arrive! Take care
