Still Preggo #3: 5/25 to 5/31

OK, we need a new head count!

I'll start -- still pg at 41w 3d.

Doing OK for the most part. What is the June birthstone anyway?

I'm here too. 39 weeks and a couple of days. Not doing too bad but this constant pressure I've had in my backend is driving me batty. It's been that way since Thursday and it's pretty uncomfortable. Doesn't matter if I sit or stand either. I think this baby may come out the wrong end!

I was up all night last night. I'm not sure if it was the BH that were waking me up and making me have to pee or if it was the other way around. I'm tired.

DH and I had date night last night and it was nice. Went out to dinner and then to Home Depot to pick out paint colors - romantic huh? He started painting our room and will finish up today. We've been waiting since we moved in two years ago to get it done, and it's nice that it will be before the baby gets here.

Other than that I think it's going to be a quiet day around here.

I'm still here too! 39 wk and 4d. DH and I went to the Drive-In theater and saw Iron Man last night...well he saw Iron Man, I saw most of Iron Man- passed out toward the end, I didn't realize it was TWO hours long! Still it was a fun movie to watch.

I've been walking alot and trying to do things to take my mind off things. I'm reading 'Eat, Pray, Love' and that's helping quite a bit.

I had the same thought.

I'm still here at 39w4d. Not late yet, but since DS#1 came 6 weeks early, I feel like I've been pregnant forever this time. I'm very uncomfortable. Also, predictions that this will be a big baby, coupled with the fact that my cervix has done absolutely no preparation so far, has me very anxious, too.

I hope some of the overdue moms go soon. I'm dreading the fact that very soon I will be one of that crowd.

I am here too. 40 weeks today, we went out to a burlesque show, had a heap of fun. I am still going well, although aparently 40 weeks= time to crazy to my mum. So far today she has rung me up, reminding me that we have the same blood group, and to start freaking out how long they are going to "let" this go on. Oh and to demand i use castor oil, because she is worried. As if thats what i need to hear at this point, i mean offers of blood are nice and all but isnt that a bit melo dramatic, also nobody is letting me do anything, anything that is done is because i let them. If she does this tomorrow i will let her know that i wont be putting up with it. Seriously rediculous.

Actually remarkably zen, i find i have about an hour everynight where i get a bit upset, mainly because i would like to be snuggling my baby in bed, but i am happy waiting for when he is ready.

Hey, last I checked I'm the only one technically PAST due left We're not past due until we hit 42 weeks 1 day. 37-42weeks is normal range.

so hang in there! You're merely due, not past due

Still here at 39 and 2. LOTS of heavy prodromal last night that (of course) petered out into nothing. I have a grill-out today, so DH thought for sure we'd be missing it.

Angela, you've got PuppyFluffer with you on the "overdue" list now, I think.

I have officially reached farther in my pregnancy than any woman in my family. Everyone in my family has gone at least a week early, if not more, so I'm getting phone calls left and right. It's a dubious distinction, but I'm sure I'll be proud of it someday. At least the weather's nice and the grills are hot, right?

I am 39 w 4 d. Any day now would be nice. I don't even care that there is a whole lot of stuff I still want done before baby. I'm just ready. My last was three days after her due date, so I think some time in the next week could be it. Dh and I are trying like crazy to induce things. Not because we're impatient, but because we just want to. ;-)
would be a nice side effect though.

Well I had contractions last night while walking that were about 5 min apart and some were making me pause. contractions continued for the next 4 hours although not as strong after stopped walking. but my back was killing me. so I couldnt sleep. so we got up and watched monty python. they lightened up so we went to bed and nothing today. was really frustrating. my parents are down this weekend and It would be alot better for them if i had him before they left as its way expensive for them to come down and they are tight on money. Also my mom has to be in saltlake this next week as my sister is having heart surgery. and I was so relaxed with the idea of going last night. grrr really blows. so I am still here 39 weeks today by my june date.... 41 by my may date. on the upside I got my whole house clean yesterday so that is really nice to have a clean house finally again.

I'm still here! I am 38.5 wks along - my technical DD is 6/4 - but I am a repeat c-section, and I go in on Tues 5/27, so I claim this as my DDC. I am tired, can't sleep well, heartburn wakes me up at night, so I am READY! Good luck everyone!!

Wow, reminding you about a shared blood type? Yes, that qualifies as melodramatic in my book!!

That's true, thanks for the reminder!

I'm still here. Sadly. 40 weeks 4 days. Emotionally exhausted from the last two days. but my kids will be home in a few minutes and I can't wait.
post #15 of 181
I'm still here too! I have different "due dates" based on different methods of calculating. So, with one way I am past 40 weeks with the other way I still have a few days to go! I'm cool with waiting until June, then my kids will all have their own birth months...

I'm pretty comfortable--hips are starting to hurt when laying down though. My appetite is still pretty much the same as always. I feel good, baby is moving lots....I don't think it will be this week for me but you never know! I have been having contractions for the past couple of months but I "think" they are getting more powerful?????

I hope we see lots of babies this week!

One ¨due date¨ I got from the MD was May 11 no mother´s day baby here. But all along I´ve thought end of may was more accurate anyways.First baby.

I´m ok with being patient except when it´s 3am and I´m having stretching in my belly. I just had this full body rash called PUPPS that has cleared up for the most part but for lower belly ahhh!
Still hoping for my dreamed of home birth! I need encouragement though...
post #17 of 181
Still here. MW was calculating my due date as May 28th, OB uses May 30th (which is good, at least it buys me a couple of extra days before any induction talk might start). Wednesday is my last scheduled appointment, but I don't feel at all close to having this baby.

How funny, DH and I watched The Holy Grail the night before last when my contractions were getting bad... they petered out around the same time they created the Trojan Bunny.

39+2 and still here. My cold seems to be coming back again after I *almost* had it gone. It would not bother me so much if the baby did not pound on my cervix any time I coughed. OUCH!

Lots of prodromal labor, but thankfully it seems to peter out around bedtime, so I am not losing sleep. I am being woken up each night with really bad reflux! I will have to thank my midwife on Tuesday for talking me into accepting a bottle of liquid Cal/Mag, talk about instant relief, WOW!

Sophia has definite slow and active times, and the little bugger gets my entire belly shaking every time she hiccups. I think the hardest part of this pregnancy is not the physical aches, but that I have a little baby inside of me and I really want to meet her and get to know her little personality. I feel like I miss her so much, and I have not even "met" her yet.

6 days until my mom comes for a week and I am torn; on one hand I really want her to be here for the birth, even though she has NOT been supportive. I would love to show her how wonderful a homebirth can be, even though she is against it. On the other hand, that is EXACTLY why I want Sophie to come before her visit and just hope we get some good pictures and videos. With my history though, it is a big risk on when I will have this baby since I had Christopher at 41w and Matthew was induced at 40w3d and I will be 41w exactly when she leaves.

I'm here! 40 weeks & 2 days.

Looking forward to this baby getting here - should be here within 2/3 weeks or so I imagine! Can't wait.
