Last night I was having contractions every 2.5 minutes lasting for 1minute 20seconds. So, I called the midwife (they'd been pretty steady and getting longer and stronger for about 4 hours). She came, my doula came, we blew up the tub, filled it up and I was ready!!!
Well, at about 3:45 or 4, things just stopped. I went and laid down and around 4:30 my m/w came in to check on me and we decided to send everyone home. So, now here I am, still pregnant when I thought I'd be holding my baby! : Dh and I took turns sleeping today and I was hoping to kick the boy child out to a friend's house, but it's not going to happen. I just want some good sex and nipple stimulation and get this baby here!!! sigh.
Anyhoo...I'm discouraged, can you tell? Remind me that no one has EVER been pregnant forever!

Kim, Mama to 4 and 1 more on the way!

I've been thinking about you a lot since yesterday afternoon! Just kind of wondering what you were up to...Sorry it wasn't what I was hoping!

It's so hard at the end. Is this the most pregnant you've ever been? Were you early both times?

Thanks everyone for the encouragement!!

Jessica - I had Emma at 37.3 and Seth at 38.2...so on Sunday I will be more pregnant than I have ever been.

It's just so discouraging. I guess it's more emotionally difficult than anything, kwim? I hate to have everyone here, get excited and be ready and then have to send them all home Oh well...next time will be the Real McCoy!

Kim, Mama to 4 and 1 more on the way!

I was expecting her to come early. By the time I was due, I felt like she was two weeks late! And by the time she was 4 days late, I felt like it was 4 months. People are already starting in with the "Maybe the baby will be early" talk, and it's so hard not to get irritated.

More hugs to you. In any case, it won't be long. It will FEEL long, but it won't BE long.

Kim, I don't know if it helps since I *am* a first-timer, but I had a few hours of good, non-BH contractions, and was getting my hopes up, too! Good luck!

I was just coming in to see if she'd been back - Hey, are you having that baby?? Huh? Huh?? We're all WAITING, you know.

(sorry, can't help myself. 6 weeks to go and people are already asking me when the baby is coming. obnoxious, I know. sorry.) But seriously, are you?

Nah, no baby. I have just kind of gone inside myself and haven't been online much at all. I am losing more of my plug and having some contractions, but nothing really regular. Today a good friend took ds so we could see if we could get this little girl out! : But...that and walking and a good laughing movie (Nacho Libre) and still no baby. Who knows, maybe it will be like with Emma...nothing until my water breaks. *sigh* I am TRYING to be pateint. Especially since I am only 38.2...but I am officially more pregnant than I have ever been today. I just keep telling myself what I tell other Moms...the closer to 40 weeks the better, the baby will come when she is ready...:

Kim, Mama to 4 and 1 more on the way!

Ah Kim - I am sorry. That stinks. I know how you feel about wanting her out. I am 38 weeks today, and I have been having some contractions, but nothing like what yours sound like. I just kinda want my body back, but more importantly, I just want to meet her! I am so excited! I won't bother telling you that she will be here soon enough, cause I wouldn't want to hear it either! All I can say is, I am sorry and hang in there mama! You will have babe in arms soon I promise!
