It seems like most of the mamas have had their babies, but I know that's not true. Just wondering who is still pregnant and what is your EDD?

me! EDD 8/23

added: Still happily (though physically miserable) baking my little man - and avoiding the traditional labor-inducing things.

Me.

EDD is 8/16.

It is my first, and my mw seems certain that I'll go about a week after my EDD.

EDD 8/20/08 and still VERY preggos at the moment. I have been having various signs, but no action as of yet.

I delivered my dd1 at 38 weeks and now I'm 39 weeks so much for the theory the first one is always late!

Today is DH's birthday, would be fun to deliver today...but I don't think it is going to happen.

Me! Edd 8/16. I have good days and bad days, but today I'm content with my pregnant state

9/1 here, but still thinking I'll go earlier . I know she's down pretty low. I'm feeling pretty good and getting things done when I have energy.

EDD 8/29

I'm a VBA2C so I'm very excited! Things are looking great thusfar and I had a reassuring appointment today. Have been having a bit of prodromal labor but I think it's position related so I'm working on getting baby in better position.

DD - 8/15
Lots of prodromal labor for weeks now and I'm really tired. As of last Monday I was a stretchy 5 cm and 80% effaced.

I had a BPP and NST today and everything looks good. I have GD so I get to do the fun stuff. I see my midwives tomorrow and I hope I've made more progress.

No matter what I'll be induced on Friday. I need labor vibes!!!

Hold on, let me check.... Yeah there's still a baby in there.

EDD 8/14

I've had a lot of signs (mucous plug, bloody show, random contractions, random loose BMs, nesting sessions, general "funny" feelings..) that have amounted to nothing. I'll probably still be pregnant a week from now.

...Oh, honestly... I'm so jealous of those who enjoy being pregnant. I've had an easy go of it, but I still don't like being pregnant. I wanted a baby but I didn't want one to be inside of my body.

Pregnancy has just been so much worrying and work and strange new feelings, I'm ready for it it to be over. I was ready for it to be over 9 months ago.

Exactly! Every "sign" ends up feeling like one step forward and two steps back. It's frustrating.



Labor vibes especially for you, Cheshire! : : :

Hello, are we the same person? Maybe we're pregnancy doppelgangers. I'm due the 14th and I've spent my day running to the bathroom and feeling sick. Over the weekend I cleaned all of the windows and carpet. I'm really hoping this babe is coming tomorrow b/c otherwise I fear I have a stomach bug or something.

Hey, Due Date Buddy! I hope you either feel better or go into labor!

I was just about to clean the floors!! I washed the window (yes, our tiny apartment only has one window) last month so I wont be doing that again.

I keep going to the bathroom thinking I need to go, but I'm either just gassy or there are unexplained abdominal cramps which I call my random contractions. I haven't had any loose BM's in a few days, though.

I really feel like I wont go for a while, so hopefully we are not the same person and you will go soon!

Wellness vibes to you :

EDD 8/15 and here.

I had 5 months and then 7 weeks between these 3 pregnancies, so I basically feel like I've been pregnant forever. And, yes, I'm one of those who wishes I could do it a ton more times, plus get the gift of the baby at the end

Because of my last experience, I feel really guilty wishing this little guy would hurry up and be born. I'm just so grateful to have such a happy, kicky little guy in my tummy. However, after working so hard to stop preterm labor, now he seems content to stay forever and these two weeks of prodromal is exhausting and driving me batty. Like others have said, I'm cleaning like crazy, too. The house has never looked so good (and, I'm sure, never will again)

Anyone else feeling like they just don't want anyone else around but dp and dc? I'm so hormonal that I start to cry if I even think about talking to anyone today about anything. If I do manage to believe it when real labor starts, I hope I feel like calling my mw in time or it'll be another oopsy uc.

Okay, back to lurking. That was more typed out than I've spoken out loud in days (VERY odd for me, hmmm)

Best wishes for patience and peace to everyone still baking out there, too. And big thank you for sharing all you do on this board. It has helped me immensely to read others going through the same things.

EDD August 15th and still, pretty much, happily gestating here. I love the feel of baby inside kicking and rolling around. I know I will get much less sleep and much more laundry when he/she comes out so I am trying to enjoy the last few days.
