I had a Dr. visit this morning, and I'm now dialated 4 cm. I've been having contractions all day, but they are actually starting to get annoying now. Hopefully this won't just fizzle out...

Come on baby!

i just wish he'd make his mind up already!!! i swear i think that i've started labor atleast 3 times and each time it stops. i'm so nervous about this because we've got quite the trek to the birth center and i need to make sure we have enough time to get there. ugh. this is getting old. : granted, i'm glad he didn't come out Monday since we had a really bad storm but they've got most of the roads clear now so any time he's ready...

I'm going to be pregnant the rest of my life. I just am. Last night I got up to pee about 5-6 times, and I didn't have that much to drink, so that was highly annoying. Now I'm just tired. I ache so bad in my hips and just cannot move. I wish I could run away from home but if I did, my body would be right there with me. If we had a nice big bath tub, I would get in it and cry until labor started. Unfortunately I'd probably be in there at least another week..... :

She said as soon as I forget about having a baby I will go into labor...yeah thats easy when I feel like Ive been hit in the pubic bone with a baseball bat..DH siad he did that while I was asleep

I also pulled a muscle in my neck and its killing me ( charlie horsing and what not ) I think I'm falling apart

Can I join the whining again? This is my THIRD day of contractions- but nothing strong enough for me to think it's time to go in. I always think... okay this is it... and then I go to bed and wake up still pregnant.

I'm not even 40 weeks yet, come on!

I'm never having this baby. And no one will leave me alone. I know everybody means well but the whole family calling all the time is making me feel homicidal. I WILL CALL YOU WHEN IT HAPPENS!
I can't deal. And I am such a bi**h that I think my husband may have to kill me if I don't go soon, and I may just let him.
I'm only 3 days late too! What will I be like at 2 weeks or more? I don't know if we will survive! It's not even so much the discomfort (although it's bad) but the not knowing...and worrying about a failing placenta and then just worrying about labor in general.

I'm still alive...no one has killed me yet. as much as I'm no drugs I swear if someone came to my door with street pitocin I might just buy it

I'm going on day 7 of up at 12-4am with contractions that get worse and then stop... sigh and oh yeah the calls :

Thanks for the chuckle.
Wow I haven't had anything near contractions like that! I'd swear I was in labor I think. How frustrating .

I am going to jump in... I need to whine!

I am 4 days past "due", but I have never made it to my due date before. I am so sleepy, my whole family has been sick, my dearly loved and very helpful mom will be here on Wednesday to "see" the baby. I am sick of doing open houses to sell our "other house". And I have no idea of when I am going to fit having a baby into my schedule! I just wish she would come out and I could lock my door and turn off my phone for 2 weeks!!!

And... I have had NO contractions, NO bloody show, NO signs of labor, and a cervix so high and tipped we can't even reach it! AAAAHHHHHHHH!!!!!!

Thanks for letting me get all that off my chest!

I am now 2 days past my due date...while I know its all relative and that he'll come when he's ready...I am still losing it!

I can't talk to anybody anymore b/c I just get pissy with the "still pregnant" comments. Do people maybe think that I don't KNOW I'm still pregnant?!

Grrr.

I'm not due until monday and I have been getting the "still pregnant" comments for over a week now! I have a class tonight that I am thinking about not attending just because I know everyone is going to obsess over the fact that I am still pregnant. BLEH!!

Not in your DDC, but this popped up on 'new posts' and the thread title made me

I joined the pregnant forever club with my most recent baby. She was born 17 days late! Hang in there, mamas, it's hard to wait when you're uncomfortable, but you can do it. Besides, it's much quieter while they're still inside!

No, not as long as my 5 days late babe stays in
Seriously I know the date is fairly meaningless but why doesn't that make it easier?
I think it's just the not knowing. Even if I knew it would be 2 weeks from now, I think I'd be ok. Despite being uncomfortable, the suspense wouldn't be overtaking me like it is now. Also if I weren't so apprehensive of labor, it would probably not be as bad.
I'm probably preventing my own labor :

Lol! If we go by lmp, dd was 2/15, so I'm right there with you. I am going by o date, so it's today. I know a date, is a date but I really thought I would go earlier this time being that it's my 3rd and they have come just a few days earlier than before.
On a funny note, I was going to do some squatting and as I did my first one I split my pj pants big time. Oops!

I'm officially joining this club, even though today is my due date, so there is still time. BTW "street pitocin" could also be referred to a sperm+orgasm. It worked like a charm to start my first labor. Of course, my baby wasn't in a great position (OP) when I used that home remedy, so I ended up with two days of contrx and a c/s. I'm being much more patient this time.

for some reason, this has never worked for us these last few days always seem to be the worst. add to it the problems that ds1 is having... i'm actually GLAD that i have to go to class tomorrow so i get a break from ds1. and ds2 seems to have had hiccups for days. he's sitting so low in my pelvis that the hiccups look really funny.

39w3d with twins today. i'm almost sure i'm going to go overdue, because that's how i roll- my first DD was early by almost four weeks, so by default these two have to be tardy to the party. my kids swear by making mama crazy in every way possible!

my EDD was NEVER a concern to me, because everyone *knew* i would go early, blah blah... we never worried about going overdue, EVER, it was the last thing on our minds, so i never thought i'd have to adjust my frigging EDD just because i was worried about being post-dates! by my absolute LATEST possible conception date i'm due 3/2, so i might be only 38w5d, but still. with TWINS? big, normal-singleton-sized TWINS (we're guessing 8+ pounds each at this point...) WHINE WHINE WHINE. this sucks. physically, i don't even feel that bad (either that or i've learned to ignore it...) emotionally, i feel bad enough to make up for feeling okay physically. i spend at least an hour each day crying because obviously () my babies hate me and don't want to be born because i'm a bad mother, people are annoying me by calling constantly asking me where the babies are, people make stupid ignorant comments that maybe i'm just not "meant to have" these babies vaginally... i have ridiculous crazy dreams that the babies are laughing at me, that they're born weighing 11 pounds each, that they're born crawling and talking... i'm definitely going crazy it's so bad that my husband remarked that he wishes he could go back to work because MY crazy is starting to rub off on him

i'm comfortable personally going up to 41w with twins (41 weeks being by my latest possible EDD, so 3/9...) after that i'll need to personally re-evaluate and if an induction (castor oil/cohosh/whatever the MW wants to do) doesn't work, i'll probably be going in for a repeat C at that point... so there is time. however, i am wondering if i will have a single shred of sanity left by the time i get there :

i know i'm not pregnant forever or even at my EDD yet but it being with twins and all... i guess i feel entitled to vent

full time, single, slightly soggy WOHM to Juliet (12.31.2004 @ 36w5d) and Willow & Adam (2.22.2007 @ 39w5d, HBAC transfer) and... expecting my little womb warrior Eowyn Susanne in September

Oh you're entitled alright!
First of all though congratulations on holding those twins in for so long! 8 lbs each WOW! Secondly . It's GOT to be tough.

i lost my plug over christmas when we all had the nasty puking bug. i have no reliable sign that the end is anywhere in sight. it's just weird because my first was early and now the second, which i assumed would come out faster, is *still* in there. oy:
