I'm 38w 4 days today and I feel like I will be pregnant forever! DD1 was born on her due date and for some reason I was thinking this one would be born 2 weeks early. That time came and went. Now I'm hoping she'll come by her due date and counting down the days but then I realize that she could come 2 weeks late and I get so frustrated.

I'm almost 39 weeks and my OB says shes guessing I'll go to my due date or a little longer. Sigh... I'm mostly just ready to be done working but I don't want to start my maternity leave until the little one is here.

I have less than a week left until my due date, baby must be pretty comfy in there.

Helen, I was just thinking about you last night!

Anyway, baby is happy where she is, although I'm fairly certain she strained one of my round ligaments last night by pushing hard on it. I didn't thinkit possible, but you could literally see her back and butt on one side and her feet on the other and my belly kept flattening out when she pushed. ARGH! No labor signs here either, just 3 episodes of fast moving BH that went away when I moved. I'm in no hurry though.....

No, mine is on November 29. I hope you get to recover! I do NOT want to have the baby before the reunion, because then I won't be able to go.

Yep, I've been saying that for months. Not bad to want to eat at all!

Although, the way things are going, I'm not sure I'll hold out until my due date (day after Thanksgiving).

LOL - I just finished packing the dresser with the last baby "essentials" burp cloths and swaddling blankets. My mom and stepdad are coming to paint tomorrow, and hubby can move into the utility room even if his office isn't done. I just need to pack up the waterbirth supplies and my work is done - or is it my work can begin?

I don't have much time to post either, but I'm due on the 28th, and you the 29th. I always have mine either 1-2 days before or 1-2 days after. Never more, never less. I'm sure we'll be seeing each other around the same time then at the end of the month!

I am still pregnant (37 weeks today) and would prefer to be for at least another month because I am completely not ready. So many things I still want to do and need to do before this baby can come!! I got a little anxious when I got on one day and saw all of the birth announcements!

what were you thinking? that i would be pg forever just like you? no, im not really in a hurry, just sometimes are more challenging than others. if your ligament is still hurting (cuz in know that hurts!!!) what helped me was putting heat on it. i used a rice bag warmed in the micro. it helped immensely the day the baby flipped over and s/he was putting some real pressure on my ligament. loosened it right up.

I'm still going strong. Due on the 14th, and the last baby was 12 days past her date, so I'm just hoping this one pops out sometime before Thanksgiving. My mom and my MIL both always went late, so I'm not even thinking about labor yet.

I'm expecting twins in about 3 weeks.

After a divorce and remarriage (remarriage was 2 years ago.), these are the first (and last) kids me and my new husband are having, since we have enough kids already.

They're going to be a boy and a girl. We're naming them

Thomas Evan and Rebecca Anne

I'm still here as well 38wks +3dys today. I expect baby to come the weekend of my due date 11/8, so Friday, Sat or that Sun. If her timing is like previous pregs. then one of those days should be right on target which will be good because no matter day or nite DH will be at home and not at work.

I hope that everyone can patiently hang on these last weeks, find a lil moment of peace, or comfort before baby comes and each lil bundle will arrive at the right time for mom and baby, not a moment too soon or too late.

I'm trying the rice bag NOW!

Where are you delivering was one thing I was thinking about? I was wondering if I'd see you in the halls or something. I'm at Mclaren. I think it would be hilarious to have a meetup in the hospital after delivery or during labor! For those who don't know, Helen and I first met at a LLL meeting two years ago. I "found" her again here!

how'd the rice bag feel? did it help? i sure hope so. that ligament pain is a real pita (abdomen ). im due thanksgiving. and unless there is something wrong im staying home this time to birth. but the nurses up there at mclaren were great when i had the boys there. that would be hysterical though, having a meetup in the halls! i need to call jeannie today actually, to get my section records. i lost my copy.

Congrats on your VBAC homebirth I hope! Hey, there's a thread in our Tribal Area for MI with a lady asking about birthing with Jeannie if you have time to add info.

I don't think it's ligament pain, I have the flu and everything hurts! ARGH!

Hi also still here. 37 weeks and 3 days so although I was convinced I was going to go into labour last week there is no reason to be in a hurry. Maybe next week!
Good luck to everyone who is waiting!

I'm 37+3 and boy, is my body ready to be done! I guess the babe isn't, though. Not quite. He's so low, and my cervix has opened at least 2cm, and last night he was RAMMING it with his head and then gave himself hiccups (which was weird, because I could feel them outside, on my labia).

I'm waddling a LOT more today than I have ever in my life. With DD, nothing seemed to happen beforehand except I got a few BH contrax the day before I went into labor. She was one of those all-at-once babies.

I'm 38 weeks today, and I've been having regular Braxton-Hicks contractions for the last week... Regular as in every 8-10 minutes, all day long, and every time I change position. It's getting annoying!

No cervical checks yet, but the baby has definitely engaged. My pelvis is spreading out and causing all sorts of minor aches and pains in my hips.

I feel ready, but I haven't yet felt the need to issue an eviction notice to baby. Any time now would be fine with me!
