Is this just a big "NO VACANCY" sign?
Ummm this is me since... 20 weeks? If I had some advice I would surely share!!

41+2

I have been having real, yet irregular, contractions that *do not* hurt for days and days - I had to confirm this with my mw yesterday just to make sure I'm not crazy. Got the membrane sweep yesterday, was 2 cm, 75% effaced, 0 station. Ok my mw told me to get up this morning, have sex as many times as possible ("to have lots of orgasms" - ha, are you kidding me, that would have to be accomplished separately so add another line item), eat breakfast, take castor oil dose #1, do an enema, then wait til after lunch, take another dose of CO and do ANOTHER ENEMA. OMG. Right. Surely that cannot all be necessary at this point. Anyway I did the CO once already this week and while it did not start labor it was generally not that bad for me, so I'm doing that part again... howev there will be neither enemas nor sex on the plate today. Then again I never had any idea how much being 41 weeks messes with you mentally - a week ago I said I'd never do castor oil and look at me now. Don't judge me, I'm judging myself enough already

Ok so I did my nightly bounce bounce on the birth ball. First contraction actually hurt on the ball, didn't have too many more like normal but it's becoming more and more uncomfortable, yet they claim she isn't even half way engaged?

What am I missing?


Dh checked me again, no change, but thinks cervix is mid and soft it also hurts now when he touches the OS

here r my fav tie dyed diapers
http://i25.photobucket.com/albums/c6...d/IMG00288.jpg
here is all of them
http://i25.photobucket.com/albums/c6...d/IMG00287.jpg

and these r the solid color diapers i did the color is uneven in the blue green and orange
http://i25.photobucket.com/albums/c6...d/IMG00289.jpg

on the tie dyed diapers i let the dye sit for 4 hrs and i think next time i will let it sit for the full 8 hrs but really even at 4hrs i think they r great
Amanda-those came out so great! Thank you for sharing the inspiration. I'm definitely doing that tonight once it cools off. And I'll wrap them up overnight so the dye stays in awhile. It's over 100degrees F right now, so I'm not going outside until it's under 80 if I want to keep seeing my ankles.

Now, if my toddler will stop nursing in a little bit, I'll be able to read what's going on with everyone on this thread in a little while...

So, it's the 15th here, I looked out the window and we have a full moon or like 98% full. Is the moon full in Europe before the US?? I'm confused.
Also my MW get's the 16th for my edd, but every time i check it on the nett with one of those calculators, I get the 13th?? First day of last mens was the 7th of nov.

Anyways, I guess I'm about 40 weeks no matter what. :

Started feeling crampy and tight at IKEA today, I was so hoping my water wouldn't break as I was sitting on a display chair lol I think I'm about 2cm open, but is that even possible if you haven't lost the famous plug yet??

Oh, and I think the yeast infection is back anyone deal with this right before birth? I don't know what to do about it so close to edd...

I've got three monkeys jumping on the bed!!

Blech, I'm having a yucky day too. My sister got in a car accident today with her two lo's. I picked them up from the children's hospital, they are ok, but my sis is still in emerg. Not a good time to have a baby, so I'm actually hoping not to go into labor for the next couple of days. Go figure, after all my chanting "come baby come" etc I'm really hoping he stays in there.

I am not crunchy enough for this forum. Everyday I get a little crunchier though! :

The moon looks full here too, lol. Our eyes just cant detect that tiny missing sliver, I guess (well, it is like 1/28th of the moon... hard to detect).

My first day of LMP was nov 8 and my due date is today (14th). My MW gets the 16th when she looks at her wheel because it counts days in progress, not days completed and it also does not take into account leap year. Maybe something similar is going on with you.

I think you can loose mucous plug without knowing it. Like it goes in the toilet when you go to the bathroom (and who inspects the toilet water every time!? ), or you loose it in tiny pieces with a lot of discharge so it's not noticeable. Some women never see their mucous plug (but it obviously have to come out if the baby does!!).

Ugh, not a damn thing here.

DH thinks the contractions I DO have mean something. why, yes, they do, they're just helping me progress. I told him not to get excited until I can't walk or talk through them. Right now, I just get them here and there throughout the day and then more at night. But, nothing that can't be breathed through. He was deployed for our first kiddo's birth, so he's really got no idea what is going on and when things will happen.

His gramma is visiting and she's never had a full pregnancy (all her babies were premature! and still living thankfully) so she thinks I should have an induction :P. I told her I declined the induction my OB offered just because there's no real (aka, urgent or necessary) reason for her to come out early. She's obviously very happy in there and I'm not going to force her out early because it's "inconvenient" that she'll be coming so late.
/end rant, sorry. lol.

I mean, I do wish labor would pick up and DO something buuuut if my body doesn't wanna, then I don't wanna force it.

You walk with one foot on the curb and the other foot...not (on the street or whatever). So you're kind of off-kilter. It's entertaining for everyone else to watch, too!

That's right! This year was a leap year, right?

I guess the moons not totally full, but sjeesh, full enough for some birthing vibes ! Baby come out . I think that's why I'm staying up late every night, hoping to feel the start of birth...

I've had the yeast infection from he** this whole pregnancy, would that effect me noticing loosing the plug? maybe the yeast ate it! I didn't have ANY yeast problems with dd and lot of eggy white stuff the last week with dd, so far with this one nothing... since dd was born in the caul I'm not waiting for my water to break lol

I checked my cervix the other day and got freaked out, like I felt an opening and then some thin membranes and the baby's head. Is that right? should it feel like that?

LOL, maybe it did, who knows!? It's all so mysterious.

Have you tried probiotics for the yeast infection? Get yourself some bio-k!! I don't think it will cause any problems with the birth at all.. it increases the baby's chance of getting thrush, though.
