I'm happy, yet irritated about that. I'm ready for this baby(except for a name ) but I hoped that it would be a couple more weeks.
Definately having contractions..baby is back to moving alot, back hurts still, I feel fluey, shakey, achy, chilly..maybe I should check my temp.?
I'm going to wait for as long as possible. I have my bag packed, same with dd. She's going to stay at her grandma's if this doesn't quiet down.
Temp. is 99.2c

waiting on the power of the three wolf moon.

Wow! Progress!!!! From what I remember, I think our due dates are really close. I just mentioned to dh 30 minutes ago that I felt like things were "going on" down there and that I might be close. Lots of contractions, but they are lower and more crampy. The movements feel more like "grinding" and my back/hips really ache. I'm waiting for more signs.....I hope you have a good and productive night. Keep us posted!!!!!

Happy Mommy to one amazing girl (6y) and one sweet boy (2y), and wife to DH since 7/03 : :

I totally know where you're coming from about being excited but wanting a couple more weeks.

I'm 37w3d and I've been having lower abdominal crampy feelings for about a week. My back has been killing me too, and I can feel baby squirming around way down in my back and pelvis. I just keep ignoring everything though.....I may be in denial. I really need to make it through Thursday b/c DH has a final that morning and I need until then to finish everything up at work. Eeeek.

Keep us posted!

not in your ddc, and i haven't read any of your previous posts but i wanted to mention that those are all symptoms of a UTI or even a kidney infection. not saying you have one, but if you think you could, you might want to call your care provider.

Heh...
So..
Introducing...
BABY GIRL!~ ( , yeah no name yet) 7lbs,11oz. 19in. For 3 weeks early, she's a big one! Completely NCB, which by the way, was absolutely horribly painful but soooo worth it. It was amazing. My doctor was completely hands off, mind you he was on call at the hospital and had a bunch of activity going on anyway Nurses stayed out, my dh was great I couldn't have done it without him
btw, my first dd was born 39w+3, and was 7lbs,11oz. Crazy...
