So who is going to be first?

post #1 of 27
Thread Starter 
OK- I as laying in bed (not sleeping of course) and thinking about how NONE of us have had our babies yet! How great that we are all still baking healthy, full term babies! But still... I jump on here every morning looking for a baby! Some of you have to be 37 weeks now, right? And our twin mommies are still hangin' in there? So... Do you think you might be our first? Why?

I was just thinking this today!! I was also thinking there has to be some 37 weekers just itching to have their babies...

I have given birth two other times a couple of days before 38 weeks so I am wondering if I will do the same this time! That is barely 2 1/2 weeks away!!

Not me! I'm 36 weeks today, and my doctor says my cervix is entirely closed.

Which is fine by me -- my daughter was born at 41 weeks, and I'm hoping this one will be born a few days late. The further from Christmas, the better!

How about I bet that I'll be last ?

I think I will be somewhere around 38 wks (jan 8th or so). There are sure to be some babies born by then.

I am soooo torn on this! I want the babies to be big and healthy and well, but at the same time I am nearing 37 wks and just getting so tired of being in pain all the time! Sorry for the whining! I guess the babies know better than me what's best for them, since I can't imagine it is terribly roomy for them in there any more either, but they are being good sports about it!

I might be the first. I know I might catch flack for this but I am having a schedued csection on the 29th of December unless Keagan decides to come earlier than that. My fluids are very low and with the unexplained bleeding, I feel this is a safer way to go so that Keagan and I both can enjoy the birth and time after.

February's DDC has a baby now! Just 30 weeks and in NICU... Just another reminder of how lucky we all are to still be pregnant. I need to remind myself of that sometimes (or will need to in another month, when I will undoubtably still be pregnant!)

Good point.
My dh reminds me that I sometimes spend so much time focusing on the birth and thoughts of baby after it's born that I neglect to appreciate all that is happening/developing/occurring right now.

I have been wondering, too... It won't be me. I am due January 25. Plus, I really want the baby to be an Aquarius. I will still love my baby is he/she is a Capricorn, but... I am, of course, kidding. Sagittarians and Capricorns famously butt heads. Plus, your sun sign isn't everything...

I have wondered how the twin moms are doing. How are you doing, twin moms?

They do? My hubby is a Sagittarius and I'm a Capricorn, and I think we get along famously : Of course, we'll take either, as I'm sure any child of ours will be either a calm Sagittarius or a wild Capricorn Either way, we'll take it.

I was thinking the same thing how none of us have had our babies yet! We really are fortunate. Of course, at 36 weeks, I wouldn't mind being the first... but not until next week... I'm ready to wear my own clothes again...

Well, I'm off to go watch the birth of my best friend's baby today : I can't wait to meet her!

Cveta and I have the same due date (January 4) and we are both pregnant with twins. We turn 37 weeks on Thursday. Woohoo! Pretty good odds it will be one of us who delivers first, but you never know!

I really wanted DD to be an Aquarius! I was due Jan. 31, so we had a fair shot! My DH is a capricorn (jan. 14th), I am an Aquarius (jan. 26th) and we couldn't be more different. This baby is due earlier, 1/17, and we are measuring ahead, so I think I might get DH his capricorn son! We'll see!

Well, the full moon is Jan 2, 2007 so I'm *guessing* that we'll have some babies around that time, if not sooner.

I actually bet I will be last!! Although all my reletives at my shower last weekend are convinced that I wont go much longer (will be 37 weeks this coming sat) - not sure why they said that..... Atleast I didnt get comments about how huge I am, I am heavy anyway, so i think that wards off most of those types of comments, one positive to being fat I guess.

I am with everyone else though that said they are sick of being in pain all the time. My hip, pelvic and pubic bones are killing me - and going to work everyday is pure torture. As soon as I turn 37 weeks if this baby wants to come out I am more than ready!! I am having a home birth and our midwife can't leagally attend until 37 weeks, but I think I am close enough that I dont really have to worry.

My mum was over due with all three vaginal births that she had, the first was 3 weeks and not induced and was stillborn, me and my sister were just a bit over 40 as she was very paraniod. She is convinced that something is wrong with her that her body just wont go into labor and that she may have passed that onto me, but it doesnt worry me (I hate the way some people in the medical field make women feel like they are defective just because one birth did not go as planned). I will refuse an induction at all costs (if it seems safe of course) - but like I started with - my luck is that I will be last!!

I'm 37 weeks now and feeling anxious, but anxiety isn't getting the baby out

I've been fighting signs of pre-term labor since I turned 35 weeks, and evidently I did such a good job of convincing the baby to keep cooking that now that its perfectly safe for it to be born, its seems to want to stay put.

I do think we've been an incredibly fortunate and blessed DDC to not have any NICU babies so far! Here's to all of us making it to term!

I agree! I have been thinking about this for a couple of weeks, actually, and I've just been amazed that no one has had any babies yet. Especially since someone from Feb. DDC has had a baby already. Wow! No babies before 37 weeks has got to be a DDC oddity. We really are blessed.

I am totally getting the "you're going to have this baby early" bit from just about everyone I know. What is that about? I'm measuring the same and weigh less than I did with DS. I don't know why everyone thinks I look bigger. I'm definitely more uncomfortable than last time, and my midwife says the head is already engaged, but still...I think I'll go all the way to my EDD. So 5 more weeks....
post #18 of 27
Wow, this is all so exciting!!!

I don't think I'll be first, but I definitely think I'll be early...I went for my 36 week appt. today (2 days early), and though I'm not dilated, apparently the baby's head is down really far and the doctor said it probably won't be too much longer... :

Of course, according to the moon phase theory, I'm looking at Jan. 4th (which was my original due date!)...it'll be interesting to see what happens.

Yay mamas!!!

Well, I'll be 37 weeks on Wednesday (edd 1/3) and I'd be happy to deliver at 38 weeks.

DH just asked me last night, with a hopeful gleem in his eye "When are you going to start using me as a human induction agent?" Friday honey, Friday.

My DH said the same thing a few days ago!
