May 15 - halfway through - who's still pregnant? - Page 2

post #21 of 51
Me. Due Saturday. I had what I think was bloody show last Thursday, but nothing else going on. I can't even begin to predict.
post #22 of 51
Me. I'm 41w. Today was my baby day prediction (just always had this idea that it would be the 15th) and I might make it. Dunno. Lost my plug 5 days ago and the ctx have been much stronger the last 2 days.

Here!

He was "Due" on the 13th (but I thought it should have be more like the 15th or 18th). And my family typically goes later than earlier.

But not much going on. I might have had the bloody show on Sunday, but don't know. And no contrax. Just waiting and trying to be comfy.

Still here at 38 weeks. With my first two I went past 40 weeks, so I am assuming I have another couple of weeks to go. Though I feel nervous that if could be any time now. : I love the epi but hate being on the monitors, the heplock, all the pain afterwards and all that jazz. Officially I am due May 29, but an US tech said more like May 24th. We will see.

I'm due the 28th-- I'm humongous, constipated, losing appetite, and very slowly losing what I think is my mucus plug. I'm not prepared whatsoever, don't have bags packed (which I HAVE to do!), don't have any idea where my mayawrap is that I MUST take to hospital with me. Don't even have my birth plan complete. Maybe I need to get on it. Maybe baby is going to wait on me to get some junk done so she feels like I'm prepared also. What's wrong with me???

Been having slightly blood tinged mucus for the last 3 days. Just got a bit heavier today, so maybe tonight?

post #29 of 51
Me...I was "due" last Wednesday...but did wake up with a nice clear, slow leak this morning No contrax yet, but definitely a water break!

Present!

I'm here - due Saturday. I've been having contractions at night for 3-4 hours for about 5 days. Last night they got fairly intense, and were 3-5 minutes apart. But then they fizzle.

I've decided that if I'm pregnant for another few weeks that this little one just needs more time. I'm patient. I'm patient. (yes.... just keep telling yourself that....)

Here I am... due the 21st. DH sweetly has decided he is staying home from Thursday on, so I am just holding out for Thursday now, but MAN do I want to have this baby already! UUGGHHH

The sad thing is every time I do something with DS I think "We won't ever do this alone again, everything is going to change, how can I do this to him?" and then I feel terrible and irresponsible. Oh well, he got to be an only child for almost 2 years, that's more than his sibling will get!

Are you me? Seriously, I could have written this post. Even down to the maya wrap!

I'm here too, but not "due" until the 30th. I'm still happy being pregnant and have a lot to do as well before the baby comes - washing dipes, packing the bags, a bunch of other random odds & ends...
post #37 of 51
me, i'm still here too. my edd is the 21st and i'm thinking it'll be a few days after that.

I'm here. Not officially due till Memorial Weekend. I'm very antsy and nervous and moody. My first was a few weeks early so I really thought it would have happened with this one by now. We want the baby to come but at the same time are just waiting it out to see what happens. Been avoiding anything that might cause labor just like we have for the past few months. We just moved and I'm too lazy to nest like others cleaning and unpacking and just waiting and trying to relax. I had serious drama yesterday with my x/now step dad, he came over and threatened me that I might be prosecuted for birthing outside the hospital and acused us of being potential murderers. He is completely ignorant and full of it and I proved it to him, why I don't know. He's just a very abusive person. Since then I haven't had the normal amount of Braxton Hicks I was having. I had a leak off and on, and sometimes sharp cervix pains and feeling the baby way down low digging there acompanied by excess white vaginal discharge not unlike when I'm non pregant... and that's gone away too. No sign of a plug really, waiting and watching for that. I think my evil X stopped my progression and maybe it was meant to be so we could get more things ready. We were hopeing to get through this past weekend for our baby shower and made it. Before that I was hopeing to get to 37 weeks so I could feel that the baby is safe to be born, and made it. Now I'm waiting to afford a birthing tub. I don't know what else is supposed to happen before this baby comes.

Also here. Due May 24th. I'm feeling really good, actually. I'm kinda surprised I don't have more going on, but I had a MW appt. today and apparently I'm 2cm dilated and 50% effaced. I know that doesn't necessarily mean anything, but since it took a good 2 days of contractions every 7 mins to make that much progress w/ my first child, I'm totally thrilled! I'm planning to have a garage sale this weekend though (need $$$ to pay the midwife and my hubby's b-day is coming up), so hopefully I'll be able to pull that off before I go into labor. If not, a friend has agreed to sell my stuff for me. I just need to get it organized and marked.

DH: Should I type up some cat care instructions before I go to bed tonight?
Me: Are you asking if I think I'm going into labor tonight?
Dh: well, that and if you do go into labor, will I have time to do it later?
Me: First part, I'll give you 50/50 odds (obviously pulled that number out of my rear, but what the heck?), second part, depends what time it is, if it's in the middle of the night I'm just staying in bed trying to rest, so do you want to get up and do it then?

So he went and did it.

Baby trying to kick its way out through my diaphragm.
