secondimpression, I was sure my 3rd daughter would be born 2.6 days after the new moon like both of my other daughters, my husband, and myself.  she was born at almost a full moon. patterns change. LOL.

Courtney and Cree, baby made 3, added one more then there were 4, sakes alive, then we had 5, another in the mix now we have 6!

I just hope I DON'T have a pattern. With DD prodromal labor started at 36 weeks and I didn't have her until 42+3. I have, in fact, been pregnant forever. Which means I'm that really mean person who teases all my full term pregnant friends who are like "Only 5 days left" and I'm all "or it could be more than 2 weeks!" Usually I add a bwahaha too, because really, it's needed.


Watch, this one surprises me by coming out at 38 weeks.

All my babies have been on the later side of the spectrum (41-42 weeks).  Three induced (yeah, before my hippie life took over full-force... at least with dd3 I had no pain meds... just some meds to get labor going.. ugh)... all inductions at or *just* before 42 weeks.  DD4 came at 41 weeks.  I don't even *begin* to think of birthing/babies/etc until 40 weeks..  Even at 40 weeks would be 'early' for me!!!  (but gosh... now that I've said all that... AND because I'm hoping for NO March baby, this baby will be my only early one... aaaaaaand of course have to be born in March... since three of my four girls already have March birthdays!)

LOL at the PP's! I'll stick with my pattern though, it seems just as reasonable and likely to be accurate as an EDD!


DS was born at 38+6 and DD at 39+6, labor started naturally both times. I'm the only woman in my family to have even one baby before my EDD. Even among my X-IL's and current/future IL's, they *all* went sailing past their EDDs. I'm obviously a freak of nature worthy of a predictable pattern upsidedown.gif


It's Mommy Law!

It's my first pregnancy and so far I have really no symptoms to speak of (at 6-8 weeks).  My nipples aren't sore and my boobs are the same size, I haven't gained or lost weight, I have had minimal cramping, no spotting, no nausea.  Vague food sensitivities and vague sensitivity to scents.  Emotional, but really, no more than usual and craving cheese, but let's face it, i'm always craving cheese.  


I'm not complaining in the least, but I have to admit, I do find it a little unsettling.  is something wrong?

tarabelle, one of my dear friends birthed a perfect baby boy earlier this year after a pregnancy with ZERO symptoms except just ONE morning of exhaustion. So rest assured, healthy pregnancies CAN come symptom-free, it's just the lucky few who experience it. 

Married to my favorite man in '07. Our firstborn came along in April 2012 (HBC), and our second is on the way, due sometime in May 2014 (planning an HBAC).
