I suppose you could put me on the "Maybe" list, I started having contractions late this morning, but nothing's regular or intense yet......

I had an NST today (a day before the baby's due, even - don't ask - at least no one's pushing me to induce), and apparently I'm having regular contractions that I can't feel. We'll see if this means anything or if it's just the start of many days of useless contractions.

We haven't heard from Jessica (wwisdomskr) in a few days... I just bet she has her baby by now.

And did yogamama74 have her baby already or am I just confused and sleep deprived?

I think it was yogachick, not yogamama, but who can blame me for not remembering after all these names :

I was wondering about Jessica too. I hope she updates us soon.

At my NST on Monday, the contraction line was completely flat, with nary a squiggle. how's that for disheartening??

Same here. I had one on Monday too...the contraction line was almost totally flat. There was one tiny, tiny hill.

Yes, totally disheartening. I feel like I'll be pregnant forever.

Nope, I'm still here and very pregnant! Baby's taking its time I guess!

Holy cow, I think we are into the 20s now, am I right?!? And only a little over 32 hours of November left...

Please, baby, don't make me have to introduce myself to the December DDC... I am sure they are nice but I like these ladies!

I second that! I never would have dreamed I might be having this baby in December. It seems really weird right now. Even so, I think my heart will always be with the Nov DDC!

Hey, no one is getting out of the Nov DDC for having a reluctant baby! You gals are stuck with us because we're not letting you go without a fight!

And I think we are officially into the 20s... tiffanynm just posted her birth story.

Wow, November IS almost over...

Yeah, just to echo Erica, just cause your babe is born in December doesn't mean you have to leave us. We'd miss you if you left!

Oh, and it looks like we could put HolisticMama in red, since she posted about contractions at 5-8 minutes.

Thanks for the reminder

You know, it's bad enough I'm not getting my Scorpio babe, but I've started getting those annoying email newsletters. Annoying because they start out, "Your baby is almost one month old!"

I almost punched the monitor :

With 19 hours left in November, I doubt I'm going to be one of the last-minute ladies for the month.....At least the contractions are getting more frequent and slightly more intense......Exit stage right, Junior, come on!

Still trying to recover from our home birth and successful VBAC!

NOW! I am going crazy wondering how they are doing! And also, wondering how many are *really* left... I only know for sure about the 4 of us (me, Lizzie, sasha, and dcgrl) who have posted most recently in the overdue thread...

I'm still here. Slightly more optimistic today though. Yesterday and today I have actually have contractions that feel crampy instead of just the BH that I have been having forever. I met with my midwife today and she said the baby's head is engaged more in the pelvis so hopefully this will get me on the path to labor soon. Or at least get me dilated, which I still not at all. I am either 43 weeks or 42 weeks tomorrow depending on the count. We are going with 42.

I haven't had a chance to check in, but Jordan Zoe was born 11/30. My EDD was 11/21 and the doctor induced me 11/29 overnight for no other reason than I was post-due. It was extremely intense, had cervadil overnight, then the doc got impatient, and within an hour broke my water AND started Pitocin (ouch!), but the baby is well, and that is all that matters.

I really want to thank everyone on this list for being there during those last few days. Checking on this DDC and especially this thread was such a lifesaver. Thanks, Gina, especially, for hanging in there even after you had your baby.
