AAHHHH!!! December has a couple of new babies!!

post #1 of 29

Wait! I'm not ready!! A couple of weeks ago, it seemed like this was going to last forever and that I didn't want to wait. I saw this morning that a couple of babies have been born on the December board and it totally freaked me out!! Are we really going to start having babies in about a month?!?Although I'm pretty sure this little one will sit right where it is until mid-January, I can't believe that it's really getting so close. I have so much stuff to do!!!

Hush! I am NOT ready for this kid to come out. UGH!

I think that those people in December haven't really had their babies yet. They're just trying to scare us.

I saw that too and couldnt bring myself to post about it! Yeah its a conspiracy to freak us out definately!

This is my fourth and Im not worried about birth although I know it will be hard and an insane amount of work but it doesnt last, yet its the idea of not being pregnant and actually having a newborn again. I have my hands full with an 18 month old nursling, a 5 year old with autism and a homeschooled 7 year old and I second guess my ability to take care of a newborn on top of it all. I really need a house keeper and I never thought I would say that in a million years!!!

There are a few twin moms who have already had their DIJ babies! I am doing everything I can to keep mine baking for quite a while longer! I cannot have these babies in the next month b/c I'm simply not ready!

I was supposed to have a late December baby in 2002 and she showed up in November....ahhhhh. Now I am due with a late January baby and there is no way I want her/him to show up in late December.

Seems like everyone wants me to have this baby at the end of Dec. Screw that!
Anyway, I can't believe Dec. has some babies already. Thats just crazy, making the time rush by too fast! I have 8 weeks left, I really need to get ready!

yeah i am also totally not ready. i just started thinking about getting ready for the baby. ds was 11 days late. should i expect the same thing for this one or is there actually a chance he might be here at 37 weeks or something?
post #13 of 29
Ds2 was 11 days late as well....wonder if it means all the babes will be late.

This baby will so NOT come out before late December! It'll stay inside, even if I have to keep my legs crossed just to keep it in. :

If I remember correctly, the average first pregnancy lasts 41 weeks 1 day, the average second pregnancy lasts 40 weeks 5 days and the average 3rd lasts 40 weeks 3 days(info came from The Thinking Woman's Guide to a Better Birth but it has been a while since I read it and have lent it to a friend). There is, however, a wide variance in one mother. FWIW, both of my kids have been born the day after their DD. Everyone just assumes that this baby will come then too. I am expecting this baby to be stubborn and show up a week or more late so I don't drive myself crazy!! I will be shocked if this baby shows up early!!

My dd was born a full week before her EDD. I was glad, because, dude, I was done. :

I'm hoping this one comes out a little "early" too :

But NOT TOO EARLY! (I am so not ready...have I mentioned that? : )
post #17 of 29
Well I am due the 22nd, and I keep thinking I am going to go late. Baby and I have discussed that if I am going to go late that he/she is to be born on Feb 4th, which is a very good friend of mine's birthday.

Plus I have this thing with the number 4, it seems to be lucky.

Baby is allowed to be born on the 22nd, 31st, or the 4th according to my affinity for the number 4. We'll see how that goes!

Definitely don't think I am having a baby in December...I CANNOT! I will be driving to California when I am 35 & 36 weeks pregnant. This kid has to wait until I come back at least...or I guess I would have an UC in the mountains of northern CA or OR somewhere!

Oddly, my MIL has issues with the number 4
That would be sooo cool. "Mommy, where was I born?"
"Somewhere between Northern Ca and OR, in the mountains."

Yeah...I was 32wks this past Thursday and dh commented that in 5 wks I would officially be "full term". 5 weeks! AHHHHHH!!!! Dd was born several days before my EDD so I'm not really counting on going late with this one, but 5 wks sounds really soon!
post #20 of 29
I'm not counting on it, but since dd and ds were both quite late (and eventually induced), I'm thinking this one will be, too. We haven't set up the co-sleeper or anything, but there isn't really a lot to do to get ready for this baby...I really don't think we're going to have a December baby.

Scary that we're only 5 weeks from full term, though!
