So I saw my mw this afternoon. Everything's still good (weight/bp/bg/blah blah blah). I've been having TONS of irregular contractions that I already knew weren't doing anything, but consented to a cervical check just to prove to us both that I was right. And I was. Baby's still head-down but absolutely, positively not anywhere NEAR being engaged. Cervix is still posterior. I'm a whole "fingertip" dilated. Pretty much exactly what I expected.

I've spent the last 3 months (at least) saying that I want to go overdue - to give us more time to get moved into our house - and I don't remember feeling this way at ALL about dd#1 even nearly a week overdue in August in Atlanta ..... but I WANT THIS BABY OUT!!!!!! I'm not willing to interfere in the process to MAKE her come out before she's ready, but damn. I've been having menstrual-type cramps and contractions off-and-on every day for weeks. My hooha feels all swollen and it HURTS. My back kills no matter what position I try to sleep in, and getting up several times/night to pee is such agony that I'm surprised every time that I don't scream. Not to mention the lovely leg cramps that hit most nights. I've had diarrhea for days. I've been SOOOO nauseous tonight. I know that technically I could go into labor any second and have this baby tonight, but I just *know* that the little squab has been listening to mommy and I'm going to be pregnant for another 2 weeks, at LEAST.

Add to all that the fact that I'm scared to death about how the next couple of weeks are going to affect dd#1 (moving to a new house - meaning she's not living with her best friend ever, my niece, anymore; getting her own room - meaning no more cosleeping; getting a new baby sister - meaning she's not the center of attention anymore; going to daycare full-time, meaning she doesn't get to visit with grandma & papa 3 days/week anymore). I'm pretty sure I'M going to have a nervous breakdown, much less dd#1.

hang in there mama. i hope baby comes soon! I'm also losing my mind waiting, and I keep telling myself it could be any time now, but that almost makes the waiting worse bc of all the anticipation. but, they keep telling me that all babies come out eventually. so hopefully your little one will choose to come soon!

oh wow you have so much going on right now. If I was you I would be talking daily with that little one inside of you and letting them know that you are ready for them to come.
