On the upside I got the most sleep last night than in months! I actually went 4 hrs without peeing LOL That's a record for me these last 9 mos! Not one contrax for the first time in many nights so maybe that means the "calm before the storm" Yah right, not getting my hopes up.
Tried some "natural inducers" this morning and that better help because I don't think that's happening again
I'm starting to worry just a little about the "worst case scenerio" now that we're about a week overdue. I DO NOT want pitocin and a c-sect just scares the crap out of me. I just wish I knew what the heck was going on! I'm not obessing or anything but every once in a while the thoughts start to creep in and I say "let's get moving baby!"

Hoping someone is having some "real" labor out there!!

congratulation erin and jenny!!!

(and hopefully ekatarina too)


hi ann and soogie!

things are going along just fine here.
had a reassuring midwife visit yesterday.
we did a non-stress test but i wasn't at all worried about that.
i know the baby is fine. super active still and i can listen to all the heart accellerations i want to at home with the fetoscope. i'm also perfectly healthy too and not even particularly uncomfortable.
she offered to check my cervix and i was curious so i'm officially 50-60% effaced and 1 cm dialated. baby's head is way low, she said she could also feel it through my cervix.

the reassuring part was that she didn't seem at all worried about my not having the baby soon. i was getting anxious because she officially only attends homebirths to 42 weeks, but she thinks i'll go before then and i got the impression that as long as i'm fine it wouldn't be a problem if i go just a bit over... we'll see, hopefully it won't matter.

Checking in to see how all you pregnant mommas are doing. Sounds like you all are hanging in there. If memory serves me right only one mom has bucked the well-cooked baby trend on our thread here, so while you three (? hoping that Ekatarina is holding her little babe right now) are the last women standing, pregnant that is, you ladies aren't alone in your feelings of just wanting to be done being pregnant. We know what you're going through and how much the waiting sucks!

Good luck and healthy happy labour vibes to all in need!

Hope I'm reading all about your bith stories really soon Ann, Susan and Flitters.

To the last of the pregnant Mommas you hang in there. I know how tough it is and how sore you are. I know you all are ready to get these lil dumplins out. Anyday now they will be out! You soon will be feeling a 100 times better. I know it's hard to think about then when you're feeling so miserable but you're almost there! We all are hanging out with you til they come out! You're in my thoughts daily!

Not sure if we need to start a new weekly thread for the 3 of us
At least this way you all will still get notified when there's a new message...

Nothing new here, went for a nice walk today but it didn't help. My pelvic muscles are killing me though and my hips are so sore. I know they are all loosened up for the big event but enough already!

So hoping for something in the next day or so!!
