Who else is about 36 weeks right now, due in the second half of May?
Megan Davidson, Labor & Postpartum Doula, Breastfeeding Counselor, Anthropologist, Mom to August (9) and Clay (4), Partner to Shawn.
I'm officially due on May 17th. My doc said I'm dilated at 1cm, and I've been having irregular contractions, so I'm thinking maybe mine might be a little impatient and make it here within the next two weeks.
Married to DH 7 years and have three fantastic kiddos! DS 6, DD 4, and DS 2 ...... lo and behold another is on the way!
Although I just started feeling the urge to nest and made myself a giant things to do list before babe is here. So I have something to focus on for the next few weeks.
DS was born on 41+1 but didn't pick his own birthday (it would've been later). But this time, I have slight polyhydramnios making me bigger, and more likely to go a little early this time. I am trying to mentally (and logistically) prepare for late May and early May, both simultaneously. Blech.

Vanessa... Happily married to a paramedic - celebrating 10 years of marriage! Mama to one crazy 6 year old transformer and one chatterbox 4 year old princess. Daycare provider to many jumping beans I'm expecting my third in late November.
I've haven't been this pregnant in 10 years my last three were all born by now. I"ll be 37 weeks next thursday and really I would be happy with baby anytime after that (hopeing for a homebirth) and if you asked last week I would have told you I could go till the middle of may
but the last few days i've been falling apart. My joints are so unbelieveably painful when I walk and the baby's head has dropped and it hurts to move at all
I have got to settle down. Anticipation is driving me nuts.
Everything feels fine and I wouldn't mind being pregnant for quite a bit longer except that it is really hard to do things around the house and our place NEEDS help! It's hard to clean bath tubs, take out trash, load the dishwasher. But these things will drive me nuts if they're not done and mental stress gives me more ctx than just sucking it up and doing it. Looking at my house makes me want to cry and I can't get anything ready for the birth until these things are out of the way.
I am 1cm and the nurse that checked me last said she could feel the baby's head. I have been doing the prodromal labor thing for about 2.5 weeks now. Cervix is softening and baby has moved down. With my first 3 ( boys) I was induced past 40 weeks. I have never gone into labor or had so many contractions before induction. Maybe this is a GOOD sign.
I'm hoping to go sometime soon....but aren't we all! LOL
caution: one-handed nak
according to my charting im 37+ weeks (due 5/9)
i dont mind the later date seeing as it could give me an extra week if need be before induction even gets brought up. but Ive never been late.
im just not ready to ahve this one really. i think i am then I panic

Anyway, she was born at about 41-42 wks, and right now I'm somewhere around 36-37. I'm nowhere near ready and I don't believe in due dates, but everyone is asking me when the baby is due, and I just say, "in May. Maybe a month or so."
