And I wanted to put it out there - where's Changed today??? ELV's to her if she needs them!!
I believe she has a house guest now (maybe her mother - I can't remember exactly?), but it's really close to her due date, too. I remember her talking about 10/7 a lot, so maybe...

I crack up laughing every time anyone uses the :Puke icon. Hilarious.

Similac makes me :Puke:Puke:Puke too - I got something in the mail from them the other day as well and straight into the garbage it went.

ELVs to Tara and anyone else requiring them:

PW: I so hope this is it for you too.

AAM: Well, I finally feel "ready" for babe (39+1 by OV date today) although would be happy enough to wait until the weekend for a whole variety of reasons (including DH's paternity leave) - and I'm expecting to probably wait longer. I didn't have BH with either of my other two but have had them this whole trimester this time and now they're getting "ouchy" so am hoping this sweet baby is getting him or herself ready a little sooner than my previous "slow cookers"!!

Day 7 of labor here. The contractions are a pretty constant intensity - a little stronger sometimes, especially when standing, and sometimes a little weaker when lying down (though I think that has a lot to do with my relaxation, too). They are running 2-3 minutes apart right now. They are always either 2-3 minutes or 5-8 minutes apart. I am so exhausted that I don't even know what to do with myself. I lost mucous plug earlier today (second time I've lost mucous). Last night I swore that was it - the contractions felt different. It was more of a wave from the bottom to top of my uterus instead of an all over tightening. But this morning, they had gone back down to "normal."

ELVs to everyone who needs them. PW - I am definitely feeling your pain and hope you are having your little one right now!

Oooooh! SOMEONE *cough cough CHANGED cough cough* just posted in Birth Announcements! :


Why do I feel sneaky posting that?
post #70 of 94
Aww, thanks for thinking of me. I'll share details when I have an extra hand. :
post #71 of 94
oo-hoo Changed! You made it to 10/7 just like you wanted! Congratulations! :
post #72 of 94
Yay Changed!!: You have been on my mind a lot today...I kinda had a sneaky suspicion you were holding a babe!!! And you made it on the 7th to boot! Can't wait for the details!!

Have you ever shopped at Motherhood and given them your info? Even in you use a credit card they can get your info and sell it to various companies. I hate Motherhood for that reason.
post #74 of 94
I just got my free samples of Similac in the mail, too! I was planning on putting them on freecycle for those mamas who are already formula feeding.
post #75 of 94
I have a feeling Amazon may be up to the same nameselling game as Motherhood. I have never shopped at Motherhood, but sure have shopped at Amazon. Evil.
post #76 of 94
Yay, Changed! I'm so thrilled for you! I can't wait to hear details.

Ugh, Motherhood ticks me off with that. I refuse to give them any info at all - although I remember when I was pg with DS, the pushy cashier actually tried to tell me that I couldn't purchase the clothes without filling out my info! :
post #77 of 94
I did shop at Motherhood! I don't remember giving them all my info... but I guess they got enough of it to sell! :

Just got back from a lovely walk in the park. It's a cool low 60's here today and I'm loving it! Helped with the hip pain immensely too.

Great news! Congrats Changed!: 10/7!

I got formula in the mail from Similac, too. I shopped at Mimi/Motherhood shop in Macy's here. I also had an Amazon baby registry. I don't know where they got my info. I was very annoyed about it, too.

My OB appt went well today. She expects me to give birth "sometime this week" - she's been saying that for three weeks now, though. I'm not in a rush, but DH can't stand waiting! The baby is at +1 now, which I didn't even realize was possible without being in labor! I understand now that it's not uncommon for first-time mothers, though. I'm a bit more dilated than 3 this week, but not to 4 cm yet. Still at 75% effacement. I feel good - no complaints.

I'm off to have a look at the Birth Announcements thread...

can't really say at this point. I took ds3 out w/ me to run some boring errands just to get out of the house. have a hard time walking, out of breath and having to struggle through some contrax but its 5pm and no baby yet...not even close to one. 41 weeks 1 day.

"Maybe they can induce you!"

At this point I feel like a bad mom because I don't have the energy or the patience to play with my kids the way they want me to. My CNM scheduled me for an induction on the 10th, even though I'll only be 41 weeks that day. So the rational part of me says that's too soon to resort to such a measure, but the crazy, done-being-pregnant, feeling-like-a-grumpy-hippo part says bring it on. I just hope I can stay sane a few more days.

Well, on a positive note, happy labor vibes to all who need them! I love reading all the birth stories and seeing the pics of the new kiddos.
omg those comments are going to get someone in my life punched!!! lol!

im right there w/ you on the kid front though. i just do not have hte energy to expend right now.

i agree about 41 weeks too....induction how??? i woudl try ALL natural induction methods before getting scheduled for one.

I do understand about the "sanity" issue though. its not that im not sane...im just getting a bit concerned. my MW (whom i love and wouldnt "require" anything) does recommend a biophysical profile at 42 weeks. argh!!! i do NOT want to go into a hospital so im just praying baby decides to come soon.

I keep telling the babe to wait until his due date so things have settled down some for DH.
this is what happened to us 2 weeks ago. OMG it was so stressful. 3 weekends in a row DP was working, etc. etc. etc. Now he's working from home and I'm really feeling watched right now. Luckily, he's out replacing the car that I got hit in a few weeks ago so hopefully that will take some time and he will go for a joy ride or something!

and OMG my 2 yo just nursed down for a nap about 1/2 an hour ago. amazing!!!! that NEVER happens!! lol!

either that or donate it to a women's shelter. that way you prevent Similac or anyone else from making any more $$$..if you throw it away, you dont do anything to them. OR, you could write "return to sender" on it and make them pay the return postage. yes, im just evil! lol!
