Countdown to Babies. Waiting to hear from 2 moms - Page 6

post #101 of 207
maybe don't put me in red yet, but i've been having contractions 5-10 minutes apart since 6am...and now it's almost 7pm...they're getting stronger and stronger, but we're still trying to decide when to go to the hospital.

so anyone who was just told that they're not dilated---have hope--anything can happen!

fingers crossed that things move along tonight, i may have something tangible to report by the morning!

Just heard from mama2setia on PM:

"Sorry for the lack of activity. We've been really busy lately. I just lost my mucus plug early this morning so I am hoping to start active labor soon.

Will keep you posted."

post #104 of 207
ho hum dee dum..................still waiting on signs.....any sign................
post #105 of 207
still nothing here, but contractions are still 10 minutes apart all day. no mucous plug, no bloody show, nothing else symptomatic, but these contractions are starting to get strong!

when i called the hospital to ask when i should come in (even though i knew the answer), they gave me the old 5-1-1 answer and the nurse sounded really nice when she asked my name and said she'd keep an eye out for me this weekend, because it sounded like things were moving along! that made me feel so much better to at least hear from a "professional" that it could be soon.

full moon full moon full moon!!!!!

I've hunted down a few names from the October and December DDCs to update our list of those who were posting here.

I am assuming barefoot had her baby by now!
post #108 of 207
*sigh* Your list is starting to scare me Gina, I'm beginning to fear I will be the last name on it in black... (I say that kind of laughing and kind of seriously).

I think MandarijnOrange had an induction scheduled for last Friday (she mentioned in the overdue mama thread) but she hasn't come back to post yet... assuming she has babe in arms by now and hope it went well for her!

I will put her in red then, but assume she's delivered!!

I know you won't be the last left in black! There are too many on the list we never hear from. I think we will end up with 10 or so that stay black indefinitely in the end.

Yeah, I think there will be some mamas that we never hear back from. But out of the ones who post really regularly, there are not many of us left! It is amazing to see how much of the list is pink now!

I'm still here. I haven't been posting a lot this whole time, but I'm due Nov. 30th.
I'm being sabatoged by my OB, though. She lied to me last monday and told me I WAS in labor, that I was 6 cm dilated, and HAD to go to the hospital.
She's all about the early inductions, and I think I'd pissed her off by basically telling her to take her pitocin and shove it.
So plan B was to just lie to me about being in labor.
Anyway, so I got a second opinon on how dilated I am...I'm only 3 cm, and the baby hasn't even dropped.

So if any of you guys are in the market for a tale of the chick who got an OB when deep down inside she knew she should proably do the MW/HB thing...hi, I'm mamakay and I'm a total moron for getting an OB when I knew what quacks they are sometimes.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Either way...I'm still here. I think I probaly will be the last of us all. I'm still not due for 4 more days, and my last baby was 2 weeks late.

Wow--that really sucks. Your OB LIED to you about your dilation?? totally messed up.

We were in for a NST on Friday (one day past my due date), and the doctor on call in L&D tried to convince me to induce. and then he said: "Although I guess that you're seeing the midwives because you don't believe in that." (the hospital has a midwifery practice) He just had a dismissive, superior tone and I wanted to smack him.

undercoverhippie, dont worry about being the last name left in black.... I have a feeling I'll be keeping you company cos I have a feeling I am NEVER going to have this baby.... am starting to get quite annoyed & impatient, I'm at 41 weeks and I have had enough.... I cant imagine how you must be feeling by now

hugs

(((HUGS))) I can't believe your OB lied to you! That is really, really despicable! And you are not the only one who went with an OB when you really kind of knew better... I did that with DS. Sometimes we make the choices we have to make... at least you know what is going on, and knew enough to not trust your OB and to realize she lied to you! You have the power and you're not letting her take it away from you, good for you!

I'm glad you found my DH's post about my son's birth! I would have had him cross-post, but he's got daddy brain and had a hard enough time just with the first post!
