Sometimes I am wonderful, other times the world is falling apart.... Can't sleep to save my life and dd doesn't nap during the day, so I am way tired which doesn't help the emotions or clarity.

I am up nights crying thinking "I can't possibly do this anymore" which started at about 42 weeks last time... this time it happened at 37 weeks. Ugh. If I have 6 or 7 weeks to go I can't imagine how I will hold up. The thought seriously scares me!

Tub is set up and I am gathering things for the birth area, so I feel like the nest is ready. Bebe was "locked and loaded" until yesterday when I jumped on the trampoline for a while with dd. Bebe came out of my pelvis and turned posterior!

I am feeling great about UP/UC... still can't get a straight story for if I had to transport, though. Oh well, must mean there is no transport in my future

I'm doing great. I'm due on Labor Day. Lots of contractions, very tired, and a short temper! But doing fine. My daughter came 11 days past her due date so I'm not expecting anything to happen really soon (though who knows). I also don't have much of a story or even a plan for transport. The closest hospital to me sucks. The one I like is probably 35 minutes. I guess if I need to transfer we'll decide where depending on what's going on. My husband seems completely unconcerned w/ the entire pregnancy and birth as well so I'm basically expecting no problems.

I'm approaching 16 weeks and still happy to be out of the 1st trimester. I am one of those lucky ones that spend the entire first twelve weeks barfing non-stop. I think I lost about 15 lbs. in 3 months.
I've felt occasional bumps and thumps to let me know all is well with the little bean.
Some mamas in my DDC are having ultrasounds and finding out what they're having and there's a tiny part of me that wishes I could know too.
Nursing my 9 month old is positively excrutiating. Ow.

i am 33 weeks. i read here a lot, and sometimes post, but sometimes i retreat and cant read at mdc for awhile because i am feeling very sensitive about this birth and have the entire pregnancy. anyway...

i have a lot of pelvic discomfort recently, and may go see a chiropractor if it keeps up. our lifestyle is a lot different this time than it was with my last 2 and my body feels it-- the other two were city births, but now we live in the country and i work each day at home gardening, canning, milking a cow, etc.

baby is head down and low, but i dont feel like his birth is soon. i havent even ordered my birth kit stuff, though i guess i should.

dh is really confident and relaxed. i am happy that he isnt worried because i am not and his worry could be contagious. he has been with me for the births of his 2 children and knows how to support me.

so all is well, here. the kids are excited! tristan keeps saying 'your belly's big enough, can Toly come out now?'

I'm betting on a birth this weekend, fittingly enough labor day weekend


I've been having contractions off and on for weeks.

Woke up this morning and learned that its not possible to confuse regular mucus with a mucus plug. Not sure if I got all of it out, but I haven't had huge chunks since waking. The initial bit was probably 3-4 inches long and .5+ inches wide. I regretted tossing it right into the toilet- I normally like to investigate things that my body produces a little more closely.

Intestines have been clearing out for the last few days. I'm having intermittant ctx, fewer then most days, but more painful then average.

I'm having some serious lower back pain/aches for no apparent reason.

And baby is low, low, low- theres so much space between my chest and belly now!

Definately not active labor yet, but its coming!

We're ready with supplies and such. I went groccery shopping for snacks and goodies this morning... now I just get to wait and see!!

Very excited!

Mama to Raina (9/06) and Peter (8/09)!

Erin, I'm so excited for you!!!!!!! Wonderful, beautiful birthing vibes to you!!


I have been getting some nausea at night and really hoping it won't last until I have the baby, really I think I had enough of it the first 5mths. Also sleeping has not been happening much for me lately (yet again), it is so hard for me to stay asleep and find a comfortable position. Oh and the BH's this time are not like they were in my other pregnancies, they aren't exactly painful but uncomfortable for sure. Other than those complaints I'm doing okay. I really really can't wait until Oct. (I think I'll have the baby then and not in early Nov). I think this baby is head down, I'm pretty sure what I'm feeling down there is a head.

Labor vibes and beautiful peaceful birthing vibes to those who are close this weekend! How very exciting!

I hear you gals on the lack of sleep, I'm there. I've always had horrible insomnia in later pregnancy, but I think it's starting earlier this time. I'm 27wks (ish) now. This bub is not as active as his older brother and doesn't beat up mom nearly as much. Maybe he'll be calmer as a newborn too? I can't remember my other pgs lol, but the last one is still fresh enough.

He's also still breech at the moment which is freaking dh out but I'm not concerned.

Mostly I'm doing great! Just need a teeny tiny bit more sleep and I'd be perfect lol.

Had my baby this morning.

a boy named Gavin Roxas
born 2:45 a.m after a 4 hour labor
10lbs even
22 inches long, 14 inch head.

The birth was intense, but much better inso many ways than my dd's birth. If this weren't our last baby, all future births would definately be UC!

Time for bed, night!

Whiny mcwhinepants am I.

I've been so sure that labor was ready to start at any time for days and days now. Gah!

I feel like such a loser compalining- I only *just* passed 40w and now all I want to do is complain like every mainstream pregnant I've met.

labor labor labor! I want labor. Active labor resulting in a baby- I'm sick of this prodromal labor.

The end.

Mama to Raina (9/06) and Peter (8/09)!

Labor does not come until you decide you don't want it to start!

With my oldes son. I wanted labor to start, I kept thinking it was started, I kept anticipating it. Right up to the day that we were going out of town. So I decide that, OK, it can start when we get there or when we come back (it was a 2 day trip, and he was already two weeks late, so what is two days).

SO what do you think? Right! I begin labor 30 minutes into the trip!

I'm 25 weeks, and I feel totally gigantic. Chasing an active toddler around on top of it has really not been fun for me. That, and he still has sleep issues, so I'm TIRED alot.

Baby is very active though, I sometimes still think there might be two. The only dreams I've had this pg about babies, have been b/g twin dreams. I was measuring WAY ahead at first, but now only a few weeks...guess I'll know in a few more months if there is one or two in there!!

I've tried feeling, but really cant tell anything.

Well congratulations to you Crystal!! I can't wait to read your birth story!!

I am nearing the end with this sweet belly full. He/she should be making an apperance by early October at the latest. I'm extatic and calm all at the same time. I'm erally trying to enjoy every last minute of being pregnant as this is our last. Nesting is fun and visualizing our birth is becomeing more and more powerful. Soon we should be done all of our "to do's" and then I'll feel really ready!!
