Countdown to Babies. Waiting to hear from 2 moms - Page 3

post #41 of 207
Got your PM. NO baby yet! I'm not due until Nov. 25th so I figure I still have a few weeks. At least thats what I'm hoping...we still haven't moved yet!!

I have been feeling a bit crampy though...not like that means anything!
post #42 of 207
Still here--due date 11/18.
Started feeling crampy last night + stronger BH ctx. My Sears Birth Book says that's no sign of imminent labor, though...

I feel like I was having more symptoms last week! No dilation at Dr. appointment, 20% effaced, but none of that really means anything to me right now. I'm missing all those nice "every 10 minutes" BH contractions from last week, and the cramps that were doubling me over at the grocery store!

I feel great right now--what's wrong with me??? :

Still here, 39w today. Nothing doing.... I am not expecting anything until 42 weeks and then I'm going to let myself get angry. Until then I'm doing my best to remind myself of all the women who would be grateful to carry their pregnancies this long, etc.

Today is officially the "due date". I don't see anything happening anytime soon though, but I keep hoping. I am starting to feel like I will be pregnant forever!

I'm still here. No babe yet. I may go out and shovel some snow. Worked for a lady in town for each of her 4 winter babies. LOL!
post #47 of 207
Still here and waiting! No signs of anything happening today - oh well DS 1 is sick and needs lots of mama love right now so I guess it's best!
post #48 of 207
Still here ... EDD is 11/15. No major labor signs......sigh. Incredibly sore through the whole lower back/belly/pelvic area, and tons of vaginal pressure, but no steady contractions, no show, no plug lost. Just a whole lotta nothin.

Blessings and congrats to all those with babes in arms... hoping to join you soon!

WOW!! Thanks for checking in, Mamas! I really expected more babies, but I am super happy just to know everything's going well and you're with us. Keep popping in once in a while!

I am outnumbered (a Taurus with two Cancers and two Leo's in the house... even the dog is a Cancer!) so my request is that we skip over the Scorpio and get a Sag!

He's SO cute! And there's that Asher name again. Two in our DDC. I need to talk with DH about that name again. It's slowly replacing the others and we're at the end, so we better get talking!

Still here. 40+ weeks now. I feel like shit. Between the pubic symphasis pain and the carpal tunnel in my hands I am pretty much physically incapacitated. I was just getting back to a zen point mentally and letting go of the 'any day now' feeling (iloveoregon, I love your sig by the way ), but then I only get 4-5 hours of sleep at night and wake up in agony every morning. DH stayed home from school today to help with DD because it's really hard for me to move around.

eta: Is it stupid that I'm sad because I'm the only one in my little 5 person bracket still pregnant?

Not at all! I feel the same way..
post #53 of 207
I am still pregnant, 38 weeks and 4 days....as of last week I was 1 cm dilated and 50% effaced....I had a little mini-party to celebrate my first centimeter! I was amazed how happy it made me to know that i was really opening!

My paper work due date is the Full moon of the 24th, I'm thinking that might actually be a strong enough force to pull her out into the world...we'll see.
I did have a dream that she was a scorpio and not a sag, but now my feeling is that she's waiting and not near ready yet.....My birthday is Dec 2nd, and maybe she'll even wait until closer to that time....I may end up saying goodbye to november!

Wishing you all gentle & peaceful births!

still pregnant. that is all. :
post #55 of 207
Well... I'm still pregnant. Officially 41 weeks today: Prodromal labor for the last 5 days, on and off back ache, and NOTHING is inducing this babe to come out. Alcohol? No. Sex? NOPE, didn't work. Walking? No. Strong RRL tea? No.

I swear, I'm starting to feel like I'm never going to give birth:
post #56 of 207
I'm still here too, with another 9 days to go 'til my EDD. I had a Dr's appt. today and asked her to do a cervical check because curiosity was killing me. I've been having increased crampiness and shooting pains down my legs ever since she dropped, along with that feeling that she's just going to fall right out...so the Dr. checked me and I'm dialated to a 2, and the baby's low enough that she could feel the head and sac. So, that was my good news for the day and helps me to remember that there is an end in sight and it's going to be soon. I can't wait to meet my squishy little sweetheart!

You can color me!

I've been hibernating offline enjoying our little munchkin. She arrived on
Oct 28th. I'll go post about her arrival when she gets back to sleep so I can use both hands lol
post #58 of 207
I am still here. Baby dropped some time last week and since then I have also had that "baby is going to fall out" feeling. I dont know if I am dilated or anything though, I cant reach.

Thanks for doing this thread Gina.

Now would NOT be a good time for baby, ds has pneumonia. :
