So many babies have been born and its only the middle of the month! So, who's still pregnant?

I am and I have a little over a week until my due date, but I am so ready right now (especially reading all these birth stories)!

I'm still here. I have 3 days until my due date. I'm struggling between my belief that our bodies know what they're doing - and panic when I bite down too hard and have a shooting pain in my mouth. Calm and panic - there's seems to be no in between! LOL. Oh well. It'll be okay. In the whole scheme of things - a toothache is not a big deal. Birthing a baby is.

Still here...my due date is a week away. My patience officially disappeared about 4 days ago especially since this baby has decided that my intestines are a nice place to rest her head, thereby making it impossible for me to, ahem, go. And oh, how I miss going!!! Never will I take it for granted again

Me! Eight days "late" and feeling like maybe the time is approaching. Could just be wishful thinking though. It's hard to be patient with all of these exciting birth announcements streaming in.

Of course with the twins they consider me postmature but I had my NST today and the babies looked great! So I will patiently wait until they are ready...

My EDD is SUnday, but I think I'm in the early stages of labor now....not for absolutely sure, but I've had contractions for the last several hours, although they are mild. I am still walking and talking through them. Called my folks, though and made them promise not to be mad if it's not the real thing! they live 1 1/2 hours away, so it's better safe than sorry!

Hi! Still here!

: Just waiting (trying to be patient - at least I have managed to get the teeniest bit nicer). My EDD is tomorrow. My MW said she thought I would go close to my dd, but not too far after. Considering dd was exactly 2 weeks late, I will be happy if I don't have to do the whole late U/S to check fluid, NST thing.

Some crampy bh stuff, some clear to yellowish mucous here and there, but nothing really definate going on here.

i'm still here, too, due on Monday

cranked out my last official day of work today, whew! brought a bit home with me, but will survive if it doesn't get done...big relief to be done with that

SIL's wedding tomorrow, then I'm free and clear of all obligations YAY!!!!!!! that mean's time for baby to come, yes?

the phone calls began today...grandparents, other SIL, step-mom..."just checking in..." I'm afraid to call anyone because I don't want them to freak out and think I'm in labor

still feeling OK, BH are beginning to ramp up but that's about it

Still here. Not due until Wednesday, but very impatient, b/c I will be induced on Wednesday if she's not here yet (high-risk perinatologist talked us into it for a blood clotting issue, and I'm not willing to fight or pull an AMA quite yet)

So, I really want her to be here before Wednesday, so we can have a "natural" birth. No GIO with my pelvic pain, but this weekend, I may muster through it.

I keep telling myself that regardless of anything, I will have a baby in a week... that's hopeful, at least.... :

Technically I'm 'still here' too at 42 weeks exactly. Last night I lost my plug and contractions started shortly after - right now we're waiting for them to become regular. Hopefully we'll have our son sometime today or tomorrow!

Ditto.

What's up, end-of-monthers??

I had prodromal labor all night last night, and then it quit at dawn. Bummer. But part of me wants to wait till the 31st, so my grandma can be here for the birth. Wonder if that is what made the labor stop.

I'm due the 31st.... my dr and midwife think he'll show beforehand, but surely they're just guessing! : Well...I do "feel" like I'm getting closer, but I don't know if that will be in a week or what....

I know one thing: I am READY!!!!!! Lets get this giving birth thing going!

I'm due *today*. Riiiiiiight aboooouuuuut.... NOW. And here I am, at work, with no signs of impending labor, dreading having to deal with well-meaning people.

When are you due? TODAY??? What are you doing here?!?!?
Haven't you had that baby yet? I hope you're sitting on a garbage bag!
Wow, when are you going to induce?


: Can you tell I had a weekend rife with annoying questions?

C'mon, tadpole... we're ready for you!!!

Magpiedee - You cracked me up. I've heard exactly the same things - even though I still have 2 weeks to go. Still working - and planning to continue right up until I go into labor, like I did last time. Much better to spend the maternity leave WITH the baby if you can! Hang in there.

I'm still here too...due tomorrow by my date (ovulation) or Thursday by the doctor's wheel thing. I don't feel like labor is anywhere close to imminent, but DH just took off tomorrow to help me get the house really clean, so now I bet I'll go into labor tonight just so I miss out on that

Mom to Liz (14) and Dillon (3) and Mitchell FINALLY born 7/11/10!
