Congratulations Nancy and Amy and Sunshinegal!!!!

Henry, Jillian and Fiona!!!

Nancy you deserve big hugs for what you've been through

Amy, wow, have a baby and get your son dressed up for trick-or-treating all in the same day...that's impressive My dad is a Halloween baby too and it's always been a blast, what kid wouldn't be happy with birthday cake and trick-or-treating on the same night

Meli- that's great news!! Can't wait to hear how your LLL meeting goes

Leita- sorry to hear you are feeling down.

All the rest of you (looks like there are 5 yet) sending lots of labor soon vibes!!! I was one of those that had lots of prelabor teaser contractions, the night before they were 8 mins apart for 2 hrs...so hopefully it means it will be very soon for you too!!

Still here...guess this baby didn't want to be an October baby...
We've tried lots of "natural inductions" and obviously this babe is cozy in there!
So just waiting and tolerating my father-in-law asking me every hour "how ya doing" and "is it time yet?"
Gonna have to kick them out again for a few hrs today!

So happy for all you mamas holding your babies

and now nothing for a whole day....weather sucks and i don't feel like going out....but i read in some place that if you put a piece of chocolate in your vagina...baby will be motivated to come out...:LOL....i think this is the only "natural way" that is left now...

Congratulations to all the new Mamas!!! I've sure been missing out your great birth stories!

Welcome Lillian, Henry, Tara, and Fiona!!! Happy Birthday!!! : They all seem like such healthy babies!!! Way to go Mamas!!!
: :

Regarding using swings and all that stuff, I think it took us about a week to "adjust" our perfect parenting image and realize that we need to be well rested and happy as parents in order to be happy toward Jillian. Definitely much better than getting frustrated at her because WE'RE tired!!! Now I have so much respect for all the AP mothers that have come before me!!!

Hey Susan, I had cracked nipples, but it does get much better. Just make sure the latch is good! I haven't worn a bra yet, and airing my nipples out w/Lansinoh really helped! Hang in there!

Well, just as I was getting over cracked nipples, I started feeling really, really worn down. Eventually I was sobbing to my dh "I just can't do this anymore... I feel sore EVERYWHERE, I'm exhausted, I'm not hungry... etc." 2 hrs later my temp was 102. Turns out I had been coming down w/mastitis... wow what another hurdle!!! I don't really remember 2 days - fever went up to 104, chills, shakes, migraine, and of course one breast feeling like it was going to fall off. Antibiotics have kicked in and I feel great, just still worn down! Basically, dh and Jillian had a lot of time together, so the good side is that he's much more comfortable handling her and suddenly telling me, "no, no, she doesn't like it like that... here's what you do..."

I guess I should check in on the Life w/a Babe thread, but I'm anxious for those of you waiting! Let's see, Ekatherina (sorry about all your starts/stops, wish I could be more helpful, Jenny (crossing my fingers for you to birth this baby by Thursday!), Ann (I won't ask "isn't it time yet?"), momtol&a (great attitude, that you'll have a baby sometime this month! although very frustrating! , and...???
