lol, I know what you mean...

I am 38 weeks tomorrow, and any day from Wednesday on is pretty much okay with me. Tomorrow (the 28th) is NOT okay, because it is MIL's birthday. And there is a part of me that'd rather avoid the 31st, I admit. After that, though... come on, babygirl!

i'm 38+2 today, still no baby but lots of cramping and yuckiness.

i feel like everyone who was due with me has had their baby so its good to see some other 38-39 weekers here that are still pregnant!

Yeah, I'm due at the *end* of the month, so I'm starting to picture it getting pretty lonesome around here by then.

I'll be like, "I had my baby!"

"Helloooooo???"

Oh yeah, that's how it's been for me every time - I am always one of the very last mamas to go, and it's not quite as exciting around here by then, LOL! Well....we'll just have to make it exciting!!

My EDD (from date of conception) is Nov. 8, but the two U/Ss I had said Nov.2. So, I'm clearly due at the beginning of the month, and I'm already feeling a little left out. I'm just so anxious to hold my baby! That, and I would love to not be pg for just an hour. All I need is one hour to nap lying on my stomach. This side sleeping is killing me.

Im 38 weeks today and I suspect Ill be pregnant for a while longer. There does seem to be a lot of babies being born though which is making me impatient. I never was impatient for DD to be born but this time Im starting to feel like I want her out already.

I am just barely 36 weeks too. So lo will probably stay in for at least 2-3 weeks more. If s/he stays in longer, I'm going to go crazy! I've never gone too far past 39 weeks and never as long as 40 weeks.

almost 38 weeks here and still going strong. All my babies come 5+ days later than thier previous sibling, and my last baby didn't come until 40wk2d, so i have been expecting 41 weeks at least this whole pregnancy. Midwife thinks we may go sooner, but I am afraid to get any hopes up. for now it's okay though...once i get the hose and connectors for the birthpool and i hit 38 weeks, i may become more ansy then lol!

it is wierd seeing all these 37 weekers coming! i am midway into my 37th week now!

My first was born at 38 weeks and 1 day. He was almost born at 34 weeks and 1 day, but we stopped the cx. So it can still happen early even though its your first.

I am 37 weeks and 3 days, and have been cramping pretty profusely since last night. Some tightness and lower back pain too, but nothing that kept me up all night. Come on baby!

I'm due on the 1st so I'm almost 39 1/2 weeks I guess. My first was born on his due date, at 40 weeks, my second I'm not sure of because the dates were way off, but I suspect she was right at 40 weeks too. I've had a lot of starting and stopping, but I am really trying to stay patient and plan things and just keep going on about daily life. Otherwise I get sooooo bogged down in frustration.

Even though I'm due early I'll still be reading all the birth stories throughout November with excitement!!

38 months + 3 days here :-)

I have a strong feeling I will go to my due date at least (11/8), so I am not stressed about it yet.

I bet there are a bunch of October mamas still. We are going to be having babies until mid December, I am sure.

yeah, i know what you mean, i was not impatient at all for my boys to be born, and was thrilled that i carried them to 40 weeks, but im getting anxious for this one. i do want a big healthy baby with fully developed lungs, so im *trying* to be patient. though i will admit, i want it born before thanksgiving so i can eat a lot. is that wrong? i haven't been here with my family for thanksgiving for several years and im looking forward to the yumminess!:

Yep, still here, but I'm not surprised at 38w2d. I'm heading off to my aerobics class this morning, I figure every little bit helps move him down!

I don't post a lot, but I'm still here. I'm 35 weeks 3 days, I plan on sticking around for a while. My 10 year high school reunion is ON my due date, I need to hold this baby in until after I go! lol I've been looking forward to it all year. I've never had a baby before my due date, so I don't think I'll have this one before.

38 MONTHS! I bet it feels like that long

I'm 37 weeks today and totally not ready. Midwife brings the birthing tub today, though, so maybe I'd better start my readiness.

Hey, I wonder if we went to highschool together. My 10 year reunion is on the same day. 11/28 right? The day after Thanksgiving. But my due date is 11/16, and I have been cramping and having lower back pain since last night, so I am hoping i will have a month to recover before hand.
