Congrats to the laboring mamas! You will be holding your babies soon!

Im still preg. And still no signs. Hubby has been gettign quite a bit of action lately hopeing that would start something... : ~blush~ But so far nothing.

Anyone else still preg or am I the last over due June mama at 40w 6d?

On a side note. Ive been taking this antibiotic for my tooth and while my tooth hurts less now and Im not needing to take so many tylenol Im getting HORRIBLE heartburn from the meds. HORRIBLE. And the bottle says not to lay down for at least 30 minutes after taking them. But they are an every 6 hr medication... Um... okay.. So I have to get up in the middle of the night and take one and then stay up for a half hr? Then try to go back to sleep? thats been working well. I havnt been getting up to take the dose at 6hrs at night Ive been waiting until Im up for the morning which is usually 7.5 to 8 hrs. Best I can do. Oh heartburn GO away!

Grace- ME TOO!

about 5-6 min apart (start to start) since 9 a.m. today July 2nd will bethe day.

painful but I wandered in the garden, toook a shower, took a bath, had a half glass of Riesling -bought last night to bring on labor as midwife suggested but I fell asleep w/out trying it.

Now I can't sit still, cleaned up a bit, swept, doing this, what to do next!?

When to go to the hospital, when to call the midwife, after I finish listening to T.S.Eliot read Prufrock from our Napster file...been listening to Luther Vandross -he died yesterday.

this should get exciting soon but for now it's just real painful for about 30 seconds.

Hi June Mamas

wow, I just quickly read through the posts and what an exciting last few days it's been. I'm so happy for everyone who is in labor right now. Yay!

I had a bit of a scary experience with that blood gush that started my labor. It turned out that I had a partal placental abruption. A very small part of my placenta had separated from the uterine wall which was causing me to lose lots of blood. THe good news was that we knew the baby was fine throughout the whole labor--heart rate was steady and strong so even though I was losing blood, she was fine. There was concern that the whole placenta would abrupt but we were thinking positively and were at the hospital if anything were to happen we could deal with it.

I'll have to type up the whole birth story soon but honestly it was incredibly positive and empowering. I wore my bikini top and my birth skirt and felt so strong and able to handle all the contractions (until the end but isn't that always the way it is! lol). I never got one internal the whole time (until the very end) except upon check-in which revealed I was 2 cm and 80%. I had an *amazing* doula and my favorite midwife who surrounded me with empowering female energy and we rocked that labor!!

This is probably all scattered and I need to get back to the couch as I am still bleeding fairly heavily - they estimated I lost 1100 cc's (?) of blood so I'm pretty weak and pale but otherwise healing appropriately. I can't believe I had a girl!! We really thought it was a boy but she is so beautiful and perfect and a total nursing champ. Oh, her name is Clare Avalon and she was 8.10 lbs.

I hope I'm not forgetting anything! I"m sure I am.

I can't wait to check back in and here about the other babies born

Pepper, I'm so glad to hear from you, and glad that everything turned out ok. I have to admit I was worried about you after that blood gush. I love her name, and I can't wait to see pictures! Congratulations to you, mama, here's to speedy healing and eating lots of iron-rich foods to get up to par again

Congratulations, Pepper - I love the name Clare Avalon.

Good luck, miamom and Pat'sGrace! I hope these babes are easy on us!

As for me - started getting surges last night around 1 AM. They have been hanging around with varying frequency and intensity all day but now finally they seem to be getting down to business - about 30 - 45 seconds long and 5 minutes apart, for a few hours now. And man, these SOBs hurt! Is this supposed to *hurt*?? :LOL We're getting ready to blow up the pool, I think that will help.

Wishing us all peaceful labor vibes -

congratulations pepper!!! so glad everything was ok after the abruption! - and welcome to little clare

go grace!!! and nancy!!! and miamom!!! and famousmockngbird!!!

are there any labor vibes left over for naturalbeauty and me??!! send them to us!
i'm still just hanging around... went to the il's pool and hung around there earlier. dh & the kids swam while i looked at old photos and just relaxxxxxed. it was nice, but i am ungrateful and impatient
dh went to a party at a friend's house tonight, and he better not do anything really stupid, like get buzzed, or just not come home... i will kill him right out. i love being home alone... overdue... with three children who still aren't sleeping although they should have been about 2 hours ago. he bought me crab legs as a bribe... bugger. where's my flaming chocolate??? i hope he gets home soon so i can sleep easy. seeing as how i think that's all i'll be doing tonight, as opposed to laboring. ah, well...

enough of my griping - i don't think there's anyone around to see it anyway!!! :LOL :LOL :LOL

go birthing mamas! may your labors be gentle and beautiful!!!
check in with us as soon as you can!

Well I am still here and still preg. BUT..... I did have my first *show* today. Passed a bit of eggy mucus earlier today. FINALLY... something. Altho not alot and not pink or red tinged. But mucus all the same. I think this baby wants to make a dramatic entrance and come on the 4th. Or maybe he is jsut too comfortable! lol. Organic you still here or are you laboring now too?
