So many mamas have had their babies already - I'd like to know who's left!

So, here I am - due on the 30th.

EDD 12/26.

Still here. My friend IRL who was due the week AFTER me had her baby this morning.

I'm not jealous though, she had a repeat c-section due to breech baby and she really wanted a VBAC. I'll take waiting, thank you very much. (On the positive side, her water broke, it wasn't a scheduled thing, so at least her baby did get to pick her own b-day, and I'm sure the CNM my friend was seeing did everything she could to make it a positive c-sec experience...)

DH is predicting 12/28... I don't really care one way or the other, I just want to meet my baby and have my second great homebirth!

Just wanted to send out some warm wishes and positive vibes to those of you waiting. Oh, the feeling of waiting is still very close to me (my babe is only 4days old) and I really, really, really empathize with you.

Hang in there, it won't be long!

Me! Thank goodness!

I'm so dog-tired, sick, my kids are sick...I am having fantasies of just falling asleep for a week and forgetting everything, and waking up in labor...

Mama, homeschooler, midwife. DD (13yo), DS (11yo), DD (8yo), DD (3yo), somebody new coming in November 2013.

I'm still here too, due the 25th. The hardest part is not knowing when he is going to come out. I also hate feeling so vulnerable and needy.

If it wasn't for the two latest additions to my life, my very first hemorrhoid and intense itching all over my body, I wouldn't be so anxious to go into labor NOW.

Lurking and waiting... Due yesterday and getting impatient. I actually had a bubble in my amniotic sac that burst last Saturday, so I thought I was having a baby then. Still no baby, a week later. Trying not to drive myself crazy.

Oh, Rachel, I would be going crazy if I thought my water broke and then it hadn't!

It makes the wait seem even longer. I'm really at that point where I feel like I am going to be pregnant forever. And it doesn't help that everyone calls and asks if I've had the baby at least once a day. But I'm sure you all know exactly what that's like. Anyways, here's some commiserating s for everyone who's still hanging in.

Oh, I'm starting to get "the calls" too. I had forgotten how much this bugged me with my first pregnancy. I try to keep in mind that everyone is just excited like we are, but I'm always like, "We'll let you know..."

I am. I'm "Officially Due" today and and have been rather impatiently waiting for the little one to decide to be born.

I went a full 40 weeks with my daughter (DSs were each born @ 38), so the Infantada is a girl and/or the study stating Dads are to blame for late babies is true (DH's children were late and were eventually induced).

I'm hoping for the former; I don't want to ~still~ be pregnant two weeks from now.

and still here. I didn't think I would be early so that has made the wait easier. Although last time with DD I was induced due to fetal distress so I have no idea what going into labor is like... I have had some contractions, but no real pain.

I was so hoping to have him on the Solstice, don't think that will happen now. I just don't want to go into January!
