Hey everybody, I'm still here! Out of desperation this morning I tried one last ditch effort and drank some castor oil, but nothing... Grandma left this after noon, and no baby so I'm just not going to worry about it anymore.

However with all the bloody show it can't be long!

Christymama: Be happy with your breasts! Mine haven't changed a bit! I'd LOVE to have some "more", I'm sure DH would too!

so here we are, in the final stretch...I'm feeling overwhelmed today and really needy. I'm uncomfortable and think I'm getting sick AGAIN (i've spent most of this pregnancy with some malady or another--and I NEVER got sick before getting preg). My throat feels scratchy and I'm coughing. Need energy for birth. Waaah.

Wish I was a child again...wish my welfare were somebody else's concern.

Christy, great site, you look like a lot of fun and your kids are BEAUTIFUL. Congrats!

Cristymama: Cute site, great pics of you and your family!

I had a great night of sleep last night, and it was much needed! I've had weeks of insomnia and I've been up by 3:00 am every day for the last week. I finally got to sleep till 6:00, yeah!

I feel better physically and mentally than I did a few weeks ago, a little more relaxed I guess. I sure don't know why.

My sons birthday is on Tuesday so I'm just going to try to switch gears and focus on HIS day right now. I ordered him a spiderman cake, and we're all going to a childrens museum on Saturday-assuming I don't go by then, LOL! It will be a nice day.
I need a distraction!

Have a great day!

Today is my due date!!!

but no news :
feeling more pressure down lowand bh but thats it. My doc doesnt like going past 41 weeks so it better happen this week. just told my mom I was in hosp.- April fools joke

went to see eternal sunshine of the spotless mind last night then to italian for eggplant parmigan. too tired and full for sex though- guess you cant do all the wives tales all the time

its really amazing how everyone in society, friends and family etc are just so blasé about babies being born- 'have you had the baby yet?' etc. it just seems so huge an event -that big chubby human coming out of your vagina for goodness sakes!!!! can you tell Im a little nervous?

Welcome to April -I cant believe weve made it!!! And I cant believe with how hard I was trying to keep him in in the first trimester, now Im trying to let him out

have a good day!!!

cute site, Christy!

elsanne and christina...sorry you're both feeling so yucky. having painful gas is the *worst*. I had it the other night and tried using my hypnobirthing techniques to get through it. it didn't make the pain really go away, but i relaxed enough to fall asleep.

wondering about lisa and kaylee....

coco..how was the movie? i really want to see it. my mom will be here Monday. if i haven't had a baby by then, i think dh and i will go see it.

things are on somewhat better terms with dh. it's still touch and go, but we had a good day yesterday. he worked like a madman on the outside of the house...scrubbing skylights, sweeping the roof and decks (we are under a canopy of trees, so lots of leaves), repairing things, etc.

no baby signs here. one bh yesterday, for a grand total of i think three. : maybe she'll sneak up on me!

Well it is our month. Some times it feels like it's gone fast and then sometimes I can't remember NOT being pregnant!

I just had to go to the December mom's thread and read all those post of the mom's just becomming pregnant. I remember so well that first positive pee stick! Then the nerves and such about not wanting to M/C, now we only have DAYS left and it will all be over, well just beginning I guess.

I was just thinking to myself how you start out watching the toilet paper and NOT wanting blood, now I pray for it every day, LOL!!!

Have a good day!

Hey all-
we were down with that yucky stomache flu thing- it worked its way through all of us in different ways. Ds and I got it the least, but I was involved in the care of all the other sickos.

Nothing on the baby front. A few bh here and there, mostly very mild ones, but last night I had 1 contrax that was soooooo painful it kinda got me scared remembering what this could be like. my 2nd was a nightmare, my first was honestly pain free, soooooooo where will #3 be???? Some where in between I suppose. Everyone around me- the other pregnants at the Y have all had their babies, except one who is in labor as we speak.
i am going to get some cloth diapers and a carseat in the morning-- i think it may be time to finish up preparations.

Elsanne-- i so hear what you say about wanting to be the child, I wish to crawl into bed and be cuddled and have someone else worry about the happiness and welfare of the rest of my family. it is a tough job being a mommy. I love my kids but it is so completely full time.
hang in there everyone- love 2 all- maria

Thanks Christy, I am fine. I did not get the sickness like the others did. Ya know those supermom hidden protectors, well, despite all the puke I dealt with, I was really only exhausted and needed some time to myself in bed. i got it and the world is a rosier place!!!

My dd has a show at school tomorrow and then I pland to hit the gym again, I went today after almost a week off and did a pretty good paced three miles. I thought my water was going to burst open there on the eliptical machine lol!!! Honestly, my belly got soooo tight I had to stop at about every 6 minutes, drink a bunch of water, and do some serious deep breathing. Crazy, I live for this shit and it felt absolutely wonderful to be moving my big fat body.

Well, here is hoping my baby comes sometime next week while dd is on vacation- she is in charge of her brother during the birth and if it is in the daytime, I do not want to worry about having to get her home from school. Also, I think with a new baby around the kids will have something to do and maybe even be real nice and peaceful for the week.. One can only dream....

can't wait to hear some stories, they ought to be rolling in soon!!!!!! love 2 all of ya-- happy labor-- maria

Congratulations Kaylee-

Well everyone...I went into labor yesterday morning April 1 and no babies yet. I was very surprised and in denial all day. Felt like I was ready to push in the 5 o' clock hour but was still 8-9 cm. Midwives were here and babies heart tones stayed great throughout everything, but it isn't completely time yet. Everyone went home this morning and I'm at 9cm. Trying to rest and regain my strength incase this happens tonight or in the am. My little babies played an April Fool's Joke on me. The reason things seem to have slowed down is that the top baby isn't quite ready to make her appearance. She's moved several times in the last day so all of the laboring I did helped to line her up a little more. The bottom baby is completely engaged and hanging out in my largely dilated cervix. How fun for me.

I guess I'll have babies soon. Keep you posted! I'm 38 weeks today, BTW!

Welcome Audrey!!! Congratulations little one!




Just thought I would mention that I woke up at 5:30 am and cleaned out the microwave, swept the kitchen floor and cleaned the kitchen. That means it'll be another 2 weeks, heehee.

hi mama's. no baby yet... :

Welcome Audrey!!!

I have an odd question... Jacob has dropped, and now I have all this loose skin on my tummy. I had a dream that I want to the bathroom @ night a couple days ago and my water broke while I was on the tiolet... I don't think that it really did though. I've got pretty okay movements (though they've slowed down *a lot*) and I'm not leaking fluid that I can tell...
Is this normal? Like a week ago, my skin was stretched so tight I thought I'd burst, now I have loose skin all over my tummy... Has this happened to anyone else???

I thought for sure we were having and April Fool's baby, I'd have cx for a hours or so... then they'd quit. And now, no reg cx for 2 days... Had a bloody show 2 days ago, but no cx, nothing... And of course, show stopped that night.

My dad is coming for a visit tomorrow and only staying 3 days, I hope to have a baby to show in that time...

Hope all are well!

mum2lillie~~ You will be having them babies very soon! How exciting for you and a bit frustrating huh.. But you get a big hug and pat on the back from me. Carrying twins to 38 weeks is amazing! Im 39 weeks now and I can not wait until my wee one comes... Having more contractions thent he week before.. they tend ot be a bit stronger and last longer.. But they arent anything to write home about KWIM.. Im tired of being wet down there all the time.. I hate that part.. UGH: Last night I ordered me a Boppy pilliow I finally found one I liked I also ordered some very cute Baby announcements.. I hope they get here before the 13th so I can fill them out while in the hospital.. They are so cute.. they look like little Luggage tags. Very cute!
I thought for sure some of us would have a april fools babies.. Guess the jokes were on us huh! Oh I can imagin some of the March mama's a little jelious that we have had what 3 or 4 mamas that have babies that were due April and came in March!!I think there is still a few march mamas floating around. Well gotta alot of chores to get done today gonna be out and about all day today.. Its all crappy and rainy too. But we need the rain.. Talk to you mamas later
