I'm almost 39 weeks now, and still pregnant, and at this point, I'm glad. I got really sick over the weekend, and my fever just broke this morning. I need a few more days to recover my strength before baby can show up! (Plus, my 3-yr-old is now sick, and my dh will likely come down with it soon, too.)
So after 2 weeks of encouraging the baby to arrive, I can safely say - hold off, baby! At least wait until this weekend!
We're at 39w1d today. Julieanne's having B-H and cervical pain every night; for a while Sunday night they had a pattern and were stronger, but they fizzled out around 2 a.m. Hopefully it won't be too much longer for any of us!
40 wks tomorrow. I feel pretty awful today. I'm so darn tired. I managed to get to the grocery store and pick up some essentials. I really hope I don't have to go to the grocery store like this again. M/w came over today and everything with the baby looks great. I am grateful for that, of course. I am just not a patient person in general and this is really killing me. My poor kids. I'm so mean.....
I'm 37w5d. I've been in labor for a few weeks now. Back pain and contractions are every 5-10 minutes and every other day they get really strong and closer for a few hours. I don't bother going in because I know they'll just send me home after checking me out for hours. As long as I'm not discharging, I'm pretty much wasting my time and theirs. I know I'm right because my cervix was checked yesterday and I'm clamped shut. I guess I'll just wait to discharge a baby out at home. I sure hope my water breaks with a big gush (discharge), so at least I'll know to go in. I am patiently awaiting his arrival and meanwhile getting lots of work done at the office. There's plenty of time left, so no rush.
Last week, a lady who works at our apartment office saw me and said, "Are you still pregnant?" Hmm, umm.. yeah, I am! I told her I wasn't due for another week and a half. She then procedeed to ask me if I was going to be induced or have a c-section. What the heck is that supposed to mean?? I was a bit shocked and of course said no, but geez. What the hell?
The cashier at the grocery store yesterday asked me when I was due. I said the 7th and she said are you having the baby on that day? I said I didn't know. Not all births are planned, lady. She then proceeded to tell me it was "ridiculous" that I had so many children and she wanted to know if I was even married??!! First of all, NONE OF YOUR BUSINESS, second of all - I wish I would have said "no, I just sleep around and collect babies"
