Still Pregnant Roll Call! - Page 3

post #41 of 369
Still pregnant at 40.3 : A little pre-labor, but nothing to get excited about. I'm about to head out to a midwife appointment that I was hoping not to have to go to.

39+3 here. 80% and 3cm as of last Thursday. Things were going going on Sunday and I almost set up the pool and called the m/w, but we got a phone call that dh's dear g'ma was in the hospital and had been given the "death sentence" and they were gathering family. Things stopped within 10minutes after that. Really hoping baby arrives soon so G'ma can meet her. Lots of contractions, nausea, mucus loss, etc. but no baby yet!

Mostly wishing I could sleep, but things aren't too bad!

My MW appt is tomorrow and I too was hoping I wouldn't have to go. Oh well, 40.2. I hope your appt goes well and she has some good news for you!!

Well tomorrow I'll be 40w6d and I have an OB appointment bright and early. I'm pretty sure I'll be there.

I feel bad whining when I'm not even a week overdue but I'm done being pregnant! I just want to go into labor! BRING ON THE PAIN PLEASE!

Due on Monday, really want to have this baby before Saturday so my MIL does not come to help (she was invited by dh without consulting me and I can't uninvite her -- I am just in no shape to be polite to her and do not want to be feeling invaded and guilty all the time!)...

I'm having lots of Braxton Hicks and twinges but both my boys were late so my hopes are not high.

Am taking EPO this time in hopes that it may help. Have refused all other medical interference -- and the docs are fine with that, since I'm doing great. In fact, I FEEL great, huge but no real health problems to speak of. If it weren't for the MIL issue I could be much more relaxed about when the baby shows up.

Ugh I was feeling nauseas earlier today, lost musous and had some major braxton hicks, but I'm afraid I won't know a real contraction from what I am feeling. My lower back hurts intermittendly all the time because for some reason I've been super gassy/constipated (I know...tmi)
post #49 of 369
I am super super super grouchy today. And I don't know if it's because I'm at the end of my pregnancy, or stuck in the house for almost a week with sick kids, or both. I just feel like a giant negative-energy monster, and it sucks.

That is all.

Still pregnant and now four days overdue. Ugh. I saw my midwife at the Birth Center this morning and she was concerned about the babe's heartbeat. I then took two non stress tests and the baby wouldn't wake up and I failed the test. They sent me right over to the hospital for a biophysical profile which totally stressed me out because if you fail that you're automatically admitted to Labor and Delivery and they start induction. I want to have my baby but I certainly wasn't ready for that. Thankfully I passed and I have this baby before another non stress test on Friday!

I am still here!!!

Due on Easter... I just fig.ed this out yesterday :-P and being told I may go into the start of April (but I think my MW is just saying that so that I will not worrie myself to the end of the earth).

Except for lost mucous, I am exactly the same right now...I feel things that might be a contraction but I don't really know especially since been gassy and constipated. I can't tell if I just have a bad stomach ache or if it's a contraction although I'm told I will KNOW when I have a real one.

This was me today. I woke up grouchy and only was able to shed it after an API mtg and time at the park. I still have 2 weeks, but I am ready. Of course ds & dd were 41 wkr, so it may be longer...

Well I am really annoyed at the moment. I thought I was in labor with ctx 10 minutes apart. They were stronger then the ones that I had the other night. So I called my doula and we talked for a good hour and the stupid ctx became irregular. Ugh. I'm going to go to bed and see if things pic up or stop completely. At this point I'm guessing they will stop.

*sighs*

Not happy at present. I feel very weepy and irritated and generally un-joybells. It doesn't seem quite legitimate for me to be so impatient when I'm only 39 weeks, but I really hate to think what kind of state I'll be in if I go overdue! Plus there are money issues to worry about at the moment, which isn't helping.

The worst of it is, I don't even have any signs of the 'maybe within a week' description! No loss of mucous plug, no broken waters, not even particularly regular bouts of contractions. It's depressing! I feel like I'm constantly on tenterhooks. And my midwife seems to think things are imminent--she couldn't come to my appointment today because she was at a delivery, but rang up to cancel and was saying stuff like 'I'll see you tomorrow, if you don't call sooner'. So that hypes me up, until I remember that she's probably only excited because she gets the whole range of births--early, late and in between--and isn't going on my actual condition. Sigh... Good to get the ranting off my chest; it's nice that you guys understand! And good to have a place where we can all stew and go quietly mad together.

39+1 - mw appt & monitoring yesterday - baby was fine, still totally posterior, head extremely low but cervix "has a long way to go." Tons of weight gain (swelling). Then DH and I went on a very long walk - including a lot of elevation gain... Then from 8pm to 3am I had very close, regular crampy contractions - periodlike + upper thigh pain! Woohoo! I was able to go back to sleep and this morning it's back to painless ctx (though numerous...) but *something* is happening and I think I won't be pregnant forever after all

Come on babies, we can't wait to meet you all!

37+4ish and my doula said some of the feelings I have been having are BH. I was surprised. I have been having twinges - then after a particularly stressful work situation yesterday - I kept feeling this tightness in my belly. Doula said they were BH. Unfortunately I am still stressed which means I can't sleep and am nauseous. I still want baby to stay put until EDD.

I'm still here too, 40+2. I've been feeling pretty good for the most part, but I wish she would hurry up and come out on her own. Because of my blood sugar issues (border line GD) my OB will not let me go past 41 weeks. His original plan was to induce one day before my due date, which I declined. At least he doesn't go by the sonogram for weight, and he doesn't believe in preforming membrane sweeps. But I will have to be induced on the 17th if I don't go into labor on my own.

I've been drinking RRL tea and taking EPO for several weeks. Taking long walks, DTD and nipple stimulation haven't helped. But I have been having lots of pre labor ctx for several hours each day. I don't think I've lost the mucous plug, but my OB wasn't so sure. He said it can sometimes turn to liquid before it passes, so it may not be globby or thick. I was having a lot of thin clear/yellowish discharge up until the other day, (TMI sorry) enough to need a pad. I was afraid my water broke, but we tested and it wasn't amniotic fluid. I'm 100% effaced but not dilated past 1 cm.

Still here!!

I'm "due" on March 21st, but thought it would be sooner..... hoped it would be in order to avoid the insanity of my parents trying to crash our babymoon.... no such luck. They will arrive in my city on the 19th... and be met with a locked door.

It's okay, baby can come when he or she wants to!

Trin.

Is anyone here ever tempted to just sleep on the bathroom floor so you don't have to walk so far to get to the bathroom every 20 minutes?? I seriously though about doing it the past couple nights...I am soooooo tired and then to have to get up to go to work is getting harder every day.
