Well, I thought that I would kick-off this week with this thread (and maybe it will bring me some good luck!)

42+2 for me and still waiting. I am a little crampy, but I think that it is gas...

How is everyone else doing today? We haven't had many baby lately, so I'm thinking that we are due for a big baby wave. Labor dust to all

Where is everyone? Usually when I check this thread it is 20 deep already!
I agree with the gas pain...it wakes me at night and makes me think I am having ctx. Such a tease!
Today is my LMP due date. I am getting a massage with acupressure/reflexology hoping to get things moving. My dh is on vacation and I don't want to waste any time.
Still just having BH, some stronger then others, but really nothing exciting. I was hoping we wouldn't make it to our MW appt on Thursday, but honestly I feel like I could be pg forever.
Come on, what are you waiting for????

I was just thinking the same thing, Heather!

Maybe everyone is off having babies.

My due date is tomorrow, based on both LMP and u/s. I've been more and more crampy, especially while sitting up, but when I lay down it goes away. I'm guessing I have a ways to go. Also, baby has had hiccups every day, and according to that hiccup thread, that means it's at least 24 hours before labor will start.

My mom wants me to go into labor Friday, so she can stay for a long weekend. Yes mom, I will try to go into labor on your schedule!

I'm here but have been "laboring" on/off since yesterday. I was prepared for start/stop labor but now that I'm in it it's no fun! Trying to stay positive and rest when I can. It's hard to rest when you are moaning through ctx every 10-15 mins. When I'm up they aren't as intense. I think I'll take a shower.

Still here, still pregnant!

I think I bruised my butt bones sitting (very ungracefully) on the floor with ds. I'm pretty sore, so hopefully sitting on a cushion or on the couch will help!

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

Still here, still pregnant, and just figured out this morning that if it hurts to roll over towards my left to get up, I should try rolling to the right.

Still here..yesterday was my due date according to lnmp. Still feeling pretty good but definitely entering the "I will be pregnant forever" phase...... Having some random contractions but nothing solid yet. I try to remember that with #1, I wasn't in labor or feeling much of anything and then I just was.....

Married to CH (2005) and mother to DS1 (6/2006), DS2 (8/2008) and DS3 Sept 22nd, 2011!

rolling over, particularly tog et out of bed, is a comedy in errors over here.

still pregnant, feeling great.

supposed to get the computer and mattress tomorrow. i sure hope so! bah!

and, i've decided that i'll work through this week (i bet this one's coming in sept!), but not work next week. staying home, relaxing, hanging with a few friends should be a nice way to spend a week. and hopefully, we'll birth next week!

baby is active, getting nice (pleasant too) contractions now and again, and just enjoying it all!

40 +2 here and a false alarm last night! I started having contractions around noon, nothing uncomfortable, about 15-20 minutes apart. DH and I watched the Red Sox game, I took a snooze... still 15 minutes or so. We had dinner, took DS for a walk, during which they were 5-8 minutes apart, and getting stronger. This kept up for the rest of the evening... every 5-7 minutes, so I called my parents (who are going to stay with DS) and gave them the option of coming over then (around 9pm... they live 45 minutes away) or waiting for a call in the middle of the night. They opted to head over, and we visited for a bit before they and DH went to bed around 11. I stayed up for a few more hours, contractions still every 5-6 minutes apart, but really not painful, just uncomfortable. Went to bed around 12:30 and slept on and off while keeping an eye on things... they started to space out to 8 minutes apart, but were getting longer and stronger, wrapping around my back and up my belly. Then I woke up at 7... and nothing! A sporadic ctxn here and there. DH had already decided to take the day off, just in case, so we headed to the bike path with DS for a long walk... contractions throughout the walk, every 5 minutes and uncomfortable, but they tapered off during the carride home and have pretty much stopped. My hips are killing me from walking for an hour, so I give up!!

Sorry for the novel. I have an appointment with my midwife tomorrow, I'm afraid to have her check me and find out that I haven't made any progress, because I know I will cry. I was so sure that last night was it! It was so much easier with DS when my water just broke in the middle of the night.....

SAHM to DS - 9/06, DD - 8/08 and our little surprise, EDD: 3/18/10 :

I'm here too I was up last night with crampy feelings.. not exactly what I would call contractions, but I'm shooting for 8/28/08 so not encouraging anything just yet lol

I had the weirdest dreams last night. Mostly my fears coming out about how we're going to coordinate picking up and dropping off the kids at school and dh at work when I'm unable to drive... in my dream someone stole our vehicle and I was freaking out about how I would be able to pick up our kiddos from school. Anywho I wish the weird dreams would go away.. I need all the sleep I can get

Am I the only one eating chile like there's no tomorrow? Red chile, green chile, I am craving it nonstop! I think it may be a subconscious thing.. with my last birth I had eaten a ton of salsa the day she was born so maybe it's my mind's way of getting the baby to come out lol

7th Heaven here we come! Due date early May

Still here. Still (happily, mostly) pregnant. 39w3d.

Went to OB this AM instead of tomorrow because thought I might be leaking fluid. Kept getting wet spots in my panties. It's just my cervical fluid/mucous, though. Membranes still in tact. A good solid 1 cm, 60% effaced.

He said, "could be today, could be two weeks from now" : No kidding, eh? So glad he's okay waiting this out. Mentioned to me again that we're not post-dates until 42 weeks and at that point he'd break my waters if I'd like. I'll definitely opt for that over RCS, though I sure wish I'd go on my own!

Still here, still pregnant. I am thankful for a full term baby but seriously . . . this is exactly what I went through with my first son - I'm done being pregnant and ready to have a baby. I wonder how many of us will go into September.

I had a NST today to be sure baby is still happy. The OB who read my test was not totally happy about his reactionary results (I think that's the term she used), so she wanted to have fluid levels and other stuff checked at triage via u/s to be sure. He had perfect scores. The OB at the hospital said that he is one of the best practice breathers she has seen.

No signs of labor here - but it is storming. First rain in weeks. Maybe that will get something going?

39wks+2d.

SOOOO crampy still.
Appt with midwife today. 75% effaced, 1.5cm dilated, baby is at +1 station. So 4 weeks of contractions are finally starting to show some results!!!
I'm trying not to get my hopes up though...this could go on for what seems like forever.

Good luck to the rest of you!! Waiting game is definitely NOT fun!

That's really embarrassing. I spelled "their", "there" in my previous post.

I just couldn't not say something.

That's awesome. Did you ask if that meant you had at least 24 hours to go?

oh my! that's it? Well, even if I end up being a september mama, I am staying put with this DDC. Does the last baby out get some sort of a prize? ;-) I should make that my goal. haha

My parents have been here from Michigan for a week now. They are really enjoying their time with DD. Luckily they are retired and can stay as long as they want.

Still here but my due date isn't until Thursday.
Can only go until 41 weeks (I'm trying a VBAC) so I'm hoping for labor soon.
At my last check up I was 100% effaced, -1 station but that is it.
I'm becoming very uncomfortable, but I'll do my best to stay positive.
