renae, i'm glad your hubby is such a supportive one i've been telling myself that my baby is ready to come out, but i think i'm holding her back also. i am very worried about how ds is gonna handle being away from me and how he's gonna adjust to the new baby. and then a bit of fear too, i guess. i had backlabor last time and although this one is not posterior, i am wondering if i'm gonna stay strong enough to got w/o meds.
those feelings get a little better every day though. i am ready to meet her/him and have noticed that since i am a bit more relaxed about it, the contrax are getting stronger...i've been having a lot, but they always subside after a couple of hs.
other than that the last few days of my pregnancy are pretty uneventful. my feet are going back to their normal shape, thank heaven, i've been peeing like a horse the past 2 days. i caved and got me some tums for my heartburn and strangely since she moved all the way down and couldn't possibly drop any more, all my pelvic, pubic, back pain is gone. my sciatic nerve is not hurting anymore and i feel much better now.
maybe it's to make good pregnancy memories, my body is probably already telling me, i need to have another one, despite what dh says :LOL

there's a lot of mamas that we haven't heard from, who must be way past their edd, what's going on with you guys, just lurking? this month is almost over, i hope we'll all have true may babies and nobody has to wait forever.
labor vibes to all of us!!!

renae, it souds like you've found a good place for yourself...i'm sending you lots of labor love!

phishmama, i think i'm right where you are. my edd is either monday or tuesday...and i've been having bloody show and contractions on and off. i can't sleep at night because they come fairly often...and then during the day i rest, but i'm so nesting. i can't imagine doing it with a 2.5 and a 5 year old! lots of energy being sent your way.

otherwise, i'm just waiting. though things have started moving along and the babe is soooo far down, i don't expect to meet the babe for a few more days at the least.

can't wait to hear from some of those who've been silent lately!

Allyson Margaret Nicole was born Saturday, May 22 at 12:58 AM after my water broke at 1 PM on Friday. 7 lbs 3 onz. Active labour started at about 7. All natural - at the hospital cos there was meconium. She's doing great, I'm doing great and I'll post the story later. Nurses like a baracuda!

Congrats and welcome new May babies!!!

I was just reading a bunch of posts last night and catching up with all you ladies and thinking I needed to post to let you all know that it's really inspiring to read about all the new May babes *and* about those who are still awaiting their little ones--since I've been a bit more discouraged and impatient of late.

But instead I think I'll have to say thanks...all the good vibes I got from reading last night must have started something. Contractions started around 3am and then I started losing my plug when I got up around 6am. I sent my nervous DH off to work in case this isn't really *it*---just glad things are moving in the right direction!

By my calculations my edd is 5/25...by the mw's it's 6/3...we'll see! At my appt. on Friday she asked if I wanted to be checked and I said okay--only a fingertip and closed inside. She said she was pretty sure she'd see me next week, but that she's also seen women deliver two days later. Who knows??

congratulations pattycakes!! wooohooo!!!!

heatherfeather, hopefully while i write this you'll be in "real" labor.

what's up with the expression "false labor" anyway? it hurts, it's contractions, and they do change something and prepare your body. what's "false" about that? must've been a man to invent this expression....

yeah- "false labor" is the worst term ever. I prefer to think of it as pre-labor or early labor. Early as in two weeks early....

I know I'm new to this board, but I am also very thankful to have a place to read great stories and share the woes of waiting. I was so certain that the baby would be early and he's not here yet. Now I'm just discouraged! My due date is tomorrow and I'm sure he won't be here then.

The thing about it for me is that my dad's side of the family decided to come visit me and are here now and I actually feel bad that I don't have a baby to show off. They flew all the way from New Mexico, my grandmother is almost 92 years old, and I can't even play with them because I feel rotten. So I sent them off today to go to a casino while I wile away my hours watching movies and wishing for labor. I'm upset because there is no baby, and honestly I'm a little mad at them for putting me in this strange position. They leave tomorrow morning, and I'm half convinced the baby is going to come just after their plane takes off. Wouldn't that be typical!

well- that was a vent. thanks for being here, moms. I appreciate you and wish all the still baking moms good labor vibes.

sigh. Yesterday after I posted I started having contractions. that went on for about 12 hours! we called the doula, got the bags ready, went for walks, called the family to let them know, and then nothing. The labor totally stalled out, and I ended up sleeping through the night. This baby is waaaaay too comfortable. We sent the doula home and have been calling all the family back to let them know that the baby hasn't come yet. I am so disappointed. I don't even know what to do with myself today.

boo!

At least today is his due date... although I can't imagine going through that excitement over and over again until he comes. I have his 40 week appointment this afternoon so I can decide to be checked. I'm not sure I need that today, after all I know he's going to come, and I will be pretty disappointed if she says that I haven't dilated or effaced any more.

i guess you all read about one of our may babies was stillborn. i know that most mamas don't like to hear about anything like this on the verge of giving birth to a baby...i just felt though, i had to throw something out there: nature does weird things sometimes. i want to send lots of healing vibes and prayers to berkleyp and lots of strength for anybody else who might not have the "perfect apgar 10 baby". all our babies are alive and perfect, whether they're in our arms or in our memories.

Logan James was born at home on May 17, 2004 (at exactly 41 weeks gestation) at 9:30am. He was 8 pounds 15 1/2 ounces and 22 inches long. He is absolutley gorgeous! The birth was beautiful and amazing. I will post my story later. I just wanted to update you all on my beautiful healthy baby boy! We are all doing wonderfully!

I'm just catching up (well, not catching up yet)... Berkeleyp, you are in my thoughts and prayers. I am so terribly sorry for you.

I'm popping in to say I've been suffering from an epidural headache basically since I last posted... there seems to be light at the end of the tunnel, but I've been thinking of all of you out there in birthing and new baby land. I'm looking forward to posting my own birth story at some point and really catching up.

Things have become really busy around here, but I had a few minutes to come check up on everybody this morning.

Welcome to all the new babies and congratulations to their mommas and families.

I hope those of you still waiting are all doing well and labor vibes to those of you that want them. (I imagine that's getting to be almost everybody by now.)

Berkeleyp, I am so sorry for your loss.

Everybody here is doing well. Garrett was really sleepy for the first few days (I guess maybe because he was a little early?) and I didn't keep him awake enough for feeding, so he got a little dehydrated and a lot jaundiced but we are back on track now. He grew an inch and gained 6 oz from his birth weight at 8 days. His siblings are great with him, but have a tendency to become real stinkers if I'm feeding him and they feel that they haven't had enough mom time.

Well, speaking of that, I better go see how they are all doing. Take care everybody.

I've finally returned and it took me forever to read all the messages I've missed.

Our baby boy, Rowan Skye, was born Saturday May 8 at 9:59 pm. Dh and I joke that we got the whole works just because this is going to be our only child (born from me anyway). The hospital says it was "curse of the prepared with a birth plan." We had lots of natural labor, some epidural and pitocin labor and eventually a cesarean. Rowan was very healthy at birth (he was transverse and refused to come down in my pelvis - in fact he had a ring around his head from being jammed into my pelvis from the pushing - they had to push him back out of my birth canal before the doctor performing the c-section could pull him out - so I'm feeling like this was probably a case where a c-section was necessary). This was absolutely not the birth we wanted, but it went the best it possibly could have considering all the interventions, and dh and I are actually quite OK about it. We've been able to accept what happened and not mourn the birth we wanted to have (most of the time).

Rowan is healthy and eats like a fiend. He was only 7 lbs 9 oz at birth, but up past birth weight 5 days later and up to 8lbs 15 oz at his two week check up. If you are interested in reading the birth story or seeing pictures, my sister in law has made him a web site http://www.stoneandsteel.net/rowan/
I just don't have the time or energy to put the birth story on the birth story link right now. Maybe later I can cut and paste it in.

Congratulations everyone! Good birthing to those of you who are waiting.

Hi-

Morningdove, thanks for posting the link for your birth story and pics. Rowan has such huge beautiful eyes. I agree about your birth - one of those cases where a cesarean birth saves lives and is the absolute right thing. And it also sounds like you labored like a hero for quite a while, too - wow. Congratulations on your healthy baby boy!

I'm busy, too, but am feeling like I am finally getting the hang of Lily's moods and needs. It's been a long recovery for me, so I haven't had a lot of one-on-one time with her until the past couple of days. We're finally getting to know each other and figuring each other out.

Take care everyone-

Sarah

Congratulations MorningDove. I'm sorry things didn't turn out the way you planned, but I'm glad that you are both doing ok (wow on the weight gain!).

emmalola - I hope you're holding your baby now!

Thanks, pattycakes. sadly, I'm still forced to imagine what the little lentil looks like, and have yet to meet him. So I am in for the long haul now- we're expecting this to take awhile. I've finally come to terms with the fact that no amount of overachieving will force this baby to come any earlier. sigh.

berkleyp- I was so saddened and shocked by your post that I just couldn't say anything. thank you for the reminder that we should never take this whole experience for granted. you're in my thoughts.

Morningdove- thank you for the link to your birth story. I really appreciated having the opportunity to read your very balanced and level-headed recount of your birth story. Congratulations!

So now my sweets and I are in the waiting game. I have a few movies here to watch and am looking forward to a little down time before the kiddo comes. Up until now my life was so heavily scheduled, I can see how I had an episode of false labor. It was almost as though he was able to tell how stressed out I was that day and decided to cool it until I got things more under control. Although my body is more than ready to be unpregnant, my mind was still processing this whole transformation. Also, having a true false labor experience forced us to have a little fire drill, and taught us a few things about what we hope to have happen when the actual day comes. So even though it was a disappointing drag to go through 12 hours of false labor and the subsequent let-down, there was a lot to be learned from the experience.

now I am just waiting to hear from renae! didn't her water break like two days ago? eeeeeee!

Hey y'all--

I'm starting to feel better, will post something more later... I've been thinking big labor vibes for all of you on your way... you certainly vibed enough for me when it was my time.

I tried to update the roll call list of babies (woo hoo, love all the pics, all the names!), please let me know if I screwed up, because my head is still kind of fuzzy.

Whoever complained about "false labor" sure nailed it.

So glad to read of all your progress and birth stories! I love reading them all, especially since I feel like I "know" you all after posting for these 40 weeks.

Here phish-y phish-y. Where are you? In laborland I'm sure of it!!!! My condolences. I read that Phish was breaking up!

Sending lots of big labor vibes and healing vibes out to all of you!!!

I have so much to write! I'm suddenly no longer in pain!! Woo hoo!!! (Still dizzy, but hey... )

It seems like half of everyone who is left is in labor/pre-labor/false labor/prodromal labor? Oh mamas, I feel for you... But it will end (I'm living proof).

MorningDove... I'm glad everything worked out in the end. I had an emergency C with ds, and I hear you--when they're necessary, it's a relief to have one. I hope your recovery goes smoothly. What a beautiful boy!

I'm going to work on writing about the birth now. I'll post something later on the birth stories thread...

Oh yeah, I have to add that I was worried about Zeki's weight gain, because I had so much trouble at the beginning with ds, etc. Found out he gained 8 oz. between Thurs (when we left the hospital) and Monday (when I made dh take him to the pediatrician to get weighed). Yea! I think I'll have him weighed again tomorrow... I'm sure he's doing totally fine, but I really like the reassurance.

Hi everyone-
I'm still here. My due date really isn't until the very end of May, so I could also go till the 1st of June. However, I always felt right calling myself a May mama, so we'll see how it goes!

Having lots of Braxton Hicks contractions (especially when I walk--it's one continuous BH) and lots of backache for the last couple days. Some low cramping too. So, it appears my body is doing something, just not quite ready for active labor yet, I guess. I keep wondering if I should be doing something to get it going, but since I'm not technically due yet, I don't really feel the need. Even though we're getting very anxious to see the little one.

DH is done with school now and I'm done with work, so our days are totally unplanned and open. It's a weird feeling, but kind of nice since everything will change quickly.

Here's hoping everything is going well with all of you.

Just wanted to share that my sweet baby boy, Avery Garrett, joined the world at 11:25am on Monday, May 24. He was 8 lbs, 6 oz and 21 inches long at birth, and definitely made his mama work to get him out! He is absolutely amazing, though, and I wouldn't trade a second of the experience for anything. I'll post the birth story later, because he's ready to eat!

Sending all my encouraging thoughts to all you still waiting (I notice lots of people missing) and laboring. New mamas, what a wonderful thing it is!

lukas josef was born on thursday at 12:43. he was 7lbs 11oz, 20 inches long after relatively short labor and 5 mins of pushing. he's nursing like a pro...

hope there's not too many mommas waiting to have their babies, good luck to all of those who are left!

Hey, may mommas.

I'm still not really up to sitting very much, so I haven't been able to read through the thread, but I just wanted to let you all know about my beautiful baby boy Luke.

The short story:
I started labor last Tuesday the 18th. Contractions were between 1 hour and 4 minutes apart till Thursday night (usually about 20 min apart). They never stopped, but they wound up and down for a while. Thursday my doula came over and gave me a message and worked some pressure points. Friday I was ready to go in.

I checked in at 7 cm dialated around noon that day. Luke was born Saturday am at 7:15 am, after 5 hours of pushing, and a great OB who took a chance on vacume extraction at my midwife's urging. I missed that C-sec by a hair!

My stitches and roids are oochy, but my baby boy is just lovely and amazing. I've had great support from my mom and dh, so all I have to do is feed, sleep, and love my beautiful baby.

Peace and

fiddlefern

There aren't many of us left, it seems, but I thought I'd go ahead and post an update today anyway. I started losing my mucous plug yesterday around 4:30 p.m. and have been having off and on bloody show/mucous plug loss since then. No measurable contractions yet, just lots of lower abdominal cramping and backache.

So, that's where I'm at. My body is obviously ramping up for something, but I know it could be a while.

Happy labor vibes to all of us! And, congrats to fiddlefern, jakobsmami & kittymama!

Hi Jacqueline,

I'm a June mama, but my EDD is 06/01 so you and I are pretty much in the same place! I lost my mucous plug last week and am a couple centimeters dilated and very "ripe" (I hate that word!). My BH have become more uncomfortable in the past several days and I keep waking up at 4 am, so I really hope my body is ready to kick it into gear!

Anyhow, if you go into June, please stop by our forum and say hi. Many of us have a long month ahead (maybe even me - my mom went 43w5d with me) and it's always great to keep those birth stories rolling in!

Just updated the status list again... woo hoo, welcome to the world Luke, Cora, Avery, Lukas! (Annika, somehow, I kind of thought Lukas was going to be a boy, but I never wanted to say anything...)

Anyone heard from Owen&mama? I'm also thinking about everyone who posted on the "overdue" thread (you know who you are! )... really hope that when things get quiet, it's because babies are being born.

I finished writing a birth story, but it's *really* long, so I think I'll try to post an edited version sometime this weekend.

Yay, Fiddlefern, Jakobsmami & Kittymama!! Welcome sweet May babes! Congratulations to you all.

Fiddle, I'm glad you are Luke are well. I kept looking for you here and wondering how things were going. Glad to hear labor ended well, although it sounds like it was tough going getting there...

Here's to all the late May mamas still waiting...some vibes for patience during these end-of-pregnancy days, and easy, healthy laboring.

On Wednesday, May 26 at 5:47pm, our beautiful son, Rowan Zachary, was born via c-section after 34 hours of labor.
He is perfect, nursing fantastically (man my boobs hurt! milk came in yesterday. : ) and mom is doing well, with lots of postpartum stuff going on, but all in all I am functioning. DH is absolutely amazing, and I don't know what I will do when he goes back to work later next week.
I will post the whole story when I have more energy. We got home from the hospital yesterday afternoon.
Hugs to all the May mamas, cookin' and done!
