Those with pink have babe in arms now. There are 143 on this list and only 1 mama not heard from but whom must have delivered by Christmas, I assume. So exit stage left, we're done!

I deserve a freakin' medal for alphabetizing 120+ names! I may have goofed a few.

But time.. oh time. I went shopping with hubby this morning and yesterday I had re-pulled that aching groin muscle. So all I can do again is sit and let my tail bone get more sore from all this sitting.

SO sick of this pain!!!!

I didn't realize that this was a separate thread! I saw it last night and then posted to the old thread this morning... and decided that I must be delusional for having thought there were 120-some names.

Okay, I'll help keep this one bumped.

Bless your soul, Gina, that's way more work than I would ever want to do! Tonight's a new moon, which will continue over the weekend. I bet that will get some people in labor (like me! Please!).

hey!

I'm 39 weeks and 3 days, or 39 weeks today (depending on the maths) ...
I'm not as zen as I was, feeling pretty good, but with a bit of nausea and heartburn. Last night a real contraction woke me up at 1:15 am and I thought it was my turn... Today, I'm just crampy and a bit melancholic and sleepy.
An internal check 8 days ago revelled I'm dilated to a 5, so things should be fast... Since I learnt the 5 cm news, i woke up every day thinking "today is the day", and I'm getting antsy... A totally new feeling for me, since my other two boys were born with 37 weeks.

I love lists, so I'm obsesivelly stalking this one! Thanks for putting it together Gina.

Wow, Gina. You're awesome for organizing this! There sure are a lot of lurkers. I'm feeling so much better today than I did the past 3 days. No baby for me today! Which is a wonderful thing. I outlasted the early labor and stalled it out!!! But I'll take a baby anytime Sunday or later.

Feeling different every day... can tell I'm getting closer, though how MUCH closer I don't know!

Back is crampy up to my shoulder blades, but I was still a couple of weeks away from delivering when that started to happen with Pixie.

Belly is just hard all the time now, not only with ctx.

Tiiiired, but I think mostly b/c I have a nasty snotty cold thing going on.

Swollen- more and more in my feet each day. Ick.

Belly button is sore now and belly is shaped differently... not dropped exactly, but I'm feeling like I have to poop constantly and finally feeling some feet in my ribs, which I was told means the baby is straightening to come out!! Yikes!

Ctx getting harder even when they aren't close together.... feel different. Feels like someone blowing up a balloon in me- I'm just waiting to hear a pop at the end of one and for my water to burst. They said it was bulging at visit before last at M/W and NOT to expect a trickle, but an all out flood.

11/13 is the EDD m/w #1 is using and betting on. 11/18 is the EDD m/w #2 is using and she's guessing I'll go 1-2 weeks over. : We'll see!!

Looks like Jojo, MajorGroover and AKmomof2+1inNov are missing, presumed in labor. Possibly monocyte too, but the other three mamas had their water break. Dunno what your criteria is for the pinking of the name, but there it is.

Whoa, you and I think WAY too much alike. I was just in here going through threads to find mommies who might be in labor so I can red their names out. WEIRD. I am just SO obsessed with this list, and no one was reporting births, so I needed another reason to come in and fix things.

Trying to decide if pixiesmommy should be on the list?

Hey, like I said, just before you made the list I was thinking about how cool it would be to have it...

Manda posted elsewhere a few hours ago... and I think that either she or her hubby would have given a shout out if anything were going on with her.

Nothing significant here. I haven't lost any mucous or anything. I'm teasing about eating basil and pineapple, but I'm hoping to hold out till the 22nd.

Don't worry- unless it's a dire emergency, we'll let ya know when to pink me!

So what's up with all the mamas (like 5 maybe??? posting that their water had broke or they thought they were in labor, but no stinkin' updates yesterday!!! I'm sure they're all busy laboring or holding new babies, but I'm seriously going nuts here. NEED to know!!!

I KNOW! I am far too obsessed here and honestly cranky that there are no baby reports

I was just about to post that there better be at least two new babies when I get up!

Aren't you up a little late? Night!

Yes, I'm up far too late! I was asleep, but woke up and couldn't get back to sleep. I've been up for nearly 2 hours. Heading off to bed here in a minute and hoping I can sleep. I feel like a kid the night before Christmas! I'm so excited to see dh!!!

Ugh... DH and I thought last night would be it since I had been having ctx on and off all day, but they fizzled out and NADA today : My mom is picking me up in a few minutes to get me walking around a bit, hoping to start something, we'll see.... I'm now 40w 3d, tomorrow is DD's 2nd b-day and I REALLY don't want the kiddos to share a b-day, I'd like for separate ones.

I pinked out three or four today I think.

It's only a matter of time. Trying to stay positive.
