Who Is Still Pregnant? - Page 5

Blech with a side of yuck sauce Changed

I don't care if it would make me into a size 4, I still couldn't eat my :
But....I should

Surely I'd have to go the encapsulation method. I can't even think about sitting in a birth tub with the afterbirth in it. This nurse is too damn squeamish.

Hee! I was thinking of you earlier, and of your thread from a bit back where you said you were going to try every induction method known to man all at once if you went late.

i have permission to bring my placenta home from the hospital, i can even keep it in the little fridge in my room the plan is to cut it up and freeze it to make smoothies. dh will have no part of it, so depending on how i feel when i get home, it might just end up planted in the yard, but i do want to eat at least some of it :

Ok thanks for making me feel a little better. I had forgotten about that thread.

Good call- better start trying all that soon!

I have no right to whine whatsoever cause I am only 37+3... but I have now been pregnant an entire week longer than I carried DS. So in essence, this whole "waiting" thing is new to me, and I'm kind of stumped.

I just don't feel like it's going to happen anytime soon. Cervix is still posterior, baby is at a -3 and doesn't appear to want to drop any further, and I am still 1.5-2cm and 40-50% effaced... no change at all in 2 weeks. Tell me, what is the point in walking if it does nothing to bring the baby down anyway? By 36+1 with DS I was 2cm, 80% effaced and at 0 station, and he was born less than 48 hours later. I know it's better this baby has stayed put longer, but now I am at a loss.

I was in a whirlwind fury again tonight. I am sick of feeling on edge, sick of feeling watched. And sick of my 2.5yo DS refusing to stay in bed. How on earth am I supposed to handle two kids when I can't even handle one???

Thanks for listening to me whine

My due date will be here in 22 hours & 21 minutes, lol. I'm pitiful, huh??

Wonder how far overdue I'll go with this baby? Hopefully not TOO far overdue. Just hoping I don't have a repeat of Friday and that the next time my contractions start she actually comes out this time. I can't wait to meet her!!! I bet she'll be just wonderful! Hopefully my son thinks she's wonderful too, lol... Better enjoy all the time I can with him before she gets here and takes all of his mommy time away from him

If I hear one more person tell me to 'get active' and to walk more I'll scream! It certainly isn't a magic trick to making baby move down. I'm on my feet most of the day, lots of walking, standing and stairs, and baby & cervix are still high (or were last week, anyway). I think maybe for some it *may help, but I also think it's one of those things that your body will do it when it's good and ready, regardless of what you do to help it along, ya know? I was the same with ds, on my feet, lots of walking, and my cervix was still way high until labor.

Though I still walk in hopes that it'll help.. but at over 40 weeks, again! I know it's not really helping all that much!

I'm now 3 days overdue. My mom is driving me crazy, she calls twice a day to see if anything is happening. I keep telling her I'll call her as soon as I go into labor but she still calls. I'm feeling ok though but I'm anxious to meet my little girl.

- can you just ignore the phone when your mom calls? My mom keeps asking "did the midwife say if anything has changed?" which is getting annoying. I keep telling her the mw has no idea when I'm going to give birth anymore than anyone else does! I finally told her I'm not getting any internals done and there's no way to know other than to sit and wonder. And if she keeps calling I'll just let her talk to the machine. Maybe that would help you? Or she might just think you're in labor lol. But being a watched pot is really hard so maybe you can figure something out.

I'm still pregnant. 8 days overdue by one edd and 3 days from an "adjusted" edd. Either way, I'm growing impatient. you would think that with this being my 4th, and all the other ones being overdue that I would be handling this better. But I just want to meet this baby already. And I am tired of the phone calls...I've resorted to turning off my phone. But it's the people I see everyday, other parents at my kids' school, that are really driving me nuts. I just want to hibernate and not see anyone.

I did half in a few smoothies and half into capsules. I haven't taken any of the capsules yet because after the smoothies, I've felt so amazing.

I don't know if many of you remember her, but I used Kundalini Mamas smoothie recipe. She was in my DDC with my 3rd child in 04.

4 days to my due date and feeling kind of sad my baby isn't here today. I need to stop sneaking over and reading the pp thread, it's just making it harder that I don't get to hold and cuddle and nurse this little one yet. First day I've felt *sadness* about it though, I've had plenty of impatience!

I'm planning on doing the encapsulation for my placenta - as a life long veggie I just can't bring myself to envision eating it as it is, even blended in a smoothie. Too meat like for me.
post #94 of 117
Encapsulating would be the only thing I could do (though I'm not.. not sure how to do it or where to get the stuff, and dh is completely opposed, which I can see his side, he's not quite as 'crunchy' as I'd like him to be ). I cannot imagine eating it. I think it's wonderful that so many do and it's wonderful for you, but personally even picture myself doing that. If I'd thought about it with enough time to prepare, I'd encapsulate, though.

Still pregnant here. 7 days until my due date.

I'm surprised at how impatient I feel. I've been telling myself this whole pregnancy that this is my first baby, so expect to be late- probably even November. (27th is my EDD) And now I just can't wait for him to get here.

I was teased with contractions on Friday night and he's felt a bit lower since then, but nothing else.

TMI WARNING!- I was loosing mucus, but since the contractions on Friday I've had large amounts of watery discharge and no mucus. I though at first my water was leaking, but my midwife didn't think so (just thought it was end of pregnancy discharge) and since I haven't had any signs of impending labor I'm inclined to agree with her.

I haven't posted much because I'm exctied for everyone having their babies, but also a bit envious and it makes me want mine RIGHT NOW. LOL. So I've been avoiding the rest of our DDC because I don't need more impatience.

But congrats to all the mamas w/ babies and for the rest of us, I am hopeing we all get to go into labor soon!!

OOH... I was going bonkers when I was pregnant with my son bc EVERYONE would call me... and as soon as I went overdue they called it seemed like 2 times a day each! I finally just turned teh ringer off on my phone and put a message on my answering machine saying "NO I haven't had the baby. YES everything is fine. I will call you when we have an update, until then I'm not answering the phone." My mom (not one of the "bad" people) was a little sad but she understood and now with this pregnancy NO ONE calls except my mom but she's not annoying to me, lmao! I love it! :

So put a message on your answering machine and turn off the ringer, lol... Trust me, it will save your sanity!

You're nicer than me, NDFanatik. I'm just not answering my phone, period. No message or anything. Mind, I haven't been getting too many calls (husband and I were both late so our moms know better) but still. If someone wants to get in touch with me, they know full well their best bet is email.

And I would just like to state, for the record, that if this baby with a due date of the 9th/10th ends up being a November baby then I am going to be PISSED.

to all you mama's.

I am still pregnant too. I have 7 days until my due date but I want my baby NOW. I am just wayyyyy too excited to go through labor LOL and I so badly want to meet my baby and see what he/she looks like and whether it is a he or a she. I have been having pre-labor for about 2 weeks and it is getting really old.

TMI, but DH and I DTD last night and it felt like he was hitting something in there and it was painful. This morning when I woke up I had soooo much pressure in my bum. It hurt to go over a bump in the truck or cough, it was that bad.

I have an appointment with the doctor tomorrow morning and I *may* ask her to sweep my membranes. My BP has been going up and up and I don't want to be faced with induction....which I feel is pretty imminent.

Woohooo!!! I'm 41 weeks today! Why am I celebrating?? I don't know.

My brother's birthday is the 22nd... I did not think I'd come CLOSE to his birthday. Jordan's birthday was 9/29, so I think she's just trying to space herself out a bit from her brother. LOL

I'm at 40 weeks 1 day, and I admit I've been feeling a bit impatient. Mostly I just feel confused by all the "pre-labor" happenings -- an hour or two here and there of tightening/warm-up contrax. I'm really trying to let go of expectations and just take a zen attitude about it. And I want her to pick her own birthday, although the midwife suggested scheduling an induction for around 42 weeks. It's been so long since I could tie my own shoelaces...and I have absolutely no cool-weather clothes that fit me right now. Otherwise I am fairly content. I do wish my friends & family would stop predicting which day she'll be born. It gets my hopes up! and they're always wrong.
