I'd really like to go past 40 weeks. May 1st sounds like a gorgeous day to birth to me. I've got 61 days till my edd and I am not ready mentally, physically, stuff-ically.

OK, i am so confused. first of all i don't know if i was on crack or what last time, but my math was completely wrong. but more confusing than that, according to my m/w and her little wheel, i go from one week to the next (ie change from 32 to 33 weeks) on a Thursday. at least, that's what i thought i remembered from the last several appointments, one of which was on a thursday! But my due date is April 20th, which is a Sunday? So if Thursdays are right, then i have like 47 days... but if Sunday the 20th is right then i have 50 days?!?!

i'm so confused. and my midwife is out of the country and not reachable for another two weeks (volunteering at a clinic in africa). i'd feel like a total nimrod calling her back-up for such a thing. so i guess i'll just have to live in confusion until she gets back

i did an online calculator thing using LMP, and it said April 20th... so i guess for now i should just go with that. so confused.... so confused....

30 days hath September... um...

I've got 43 days to go I guess. Or 42. Depends on if I count today or not; it seems almost gone already (2 in the afternoon, and I'm not even dressed yet, but that's mostly because I have no clean underwear and my laundry's in the dryer ;-).

Praying you'll have that full 15 days for the babe to grow! What was your original EDD again? You're likely to be our first mama in April!

Thanks, mkmama! My EDD was April 13. It's funny, because DS (#2) was due April 17 and came at 33 weeks on Feb 27. My two girls were full-term textbook September births. Now another April boy, and wham! excitement out the wazoo. I'm glad he made it to March, though.

I'm feeling pretty positive about making it to 36 weeks, though that's a recent development. All the cervical length checks are helping me stay calm.

45 days left here! I actually almost typed months instead of weeks I'm having a hard time wrapping my brain around how soon that sounds! I'm planning on going to at least 41 weeks again though, so I'm sure I'll have plenty of time to feel ready beforehand. In the mad dash to get the important stuff done right now though!

After having a very interesting conversation with my Mum about how long she carried for (38 weeks to the day of conception with all three of us - we were all born on our due date) we recalculated my due date so I have anywhere from 32 to 42 days left to go. I think this babe will be earlier than the LMP estimate.

I also have a second countdown going for myself - the countdown until our new house closes. It's a mere 2 days before my EDD but it's so much more of a solid, knowable countdown, that I kind of like it better. It's also the day that I no longer have to scrub my MIL's ass wax (she smears herself with some kind of chinese medicinal tiger balm and then it sticks to the toilet seat and picks up lint and dead skin cells - can you say absolutely disgusting?) off the toilet seat four times a week so I can go to the bathroom without sitting in it.

That is only 53 days away! And my edd is 55! Oh ho ho I'm getting excited! By the end of the week I'll be in the 40s!

47 days to go here - things finally started feeling "real" over the weekend. LOL I think it's because we started our painting project (our bedroom and dd's bedroom) and once that is done I will be able to pull out baby stuff and start organizing. Plus it will be time to do things like pack for the birth and get his carseat ready.

36 days... I'm sure it will be a lot less. DD was one week early, DS 2 weeks early... so maybe this one will be 3 weeks early?

so that would be how many days? 15...

I'm the same as Blueirises, so 32 days... but I realized "full term" is a week from Friday! Wooo-hooo!

Now that I've got my most favorite newborn clothes out of storage and laundered, I'm feeling like yeah, baby could show up anytime and I'd be cool with that (though after the 37-week mark is, of course, highly preferable!).
