I'm due in 12 days, and it seems like FOREVER, especially since some MDCers who were due around my time/after have already given birth! The last few weeks really seem to drag on.

I'm due the 27th as well! I wouldn't be surprised if I'm the last pregnant one in the DDC. I'm downing the raspberry leaf tea and doing my kegels and haven't had a single cramp or even BH in awhile! We can be pregnant for several more weeks together!

I do not feel close at all. I am due the 17th but tend to go over. I hope I go sooner rather than later but I am not counting on it.

I'm due the 13th and tend to go right on so I am still planning for another 2 1/2 weeks. I don't know if I can do it. I am just so tired all the time.

I am due the 25th but I have been having some things going on. It almost drives me more crazy to know that it could be now or in 5 or 6 wks! It is funny that the shortest month of the year has seemed like the longest! Will February ever end?

I'm due the 7th, but I've never had a baby earlier than eight days. Also, absolutely no change at all cervically, so we'll just say I've got two to three weeks to go. :P

I'm due the 16th... hit 37 weeks today, but I have no idea when this baby will come. He is still sitting really high.

I'm with you. My due date is the 21, plus or minus 5 freaking days!!!

so anywhere from 3-5 weeks still. And everyone is hoping for an earlier baby, so I feel jinxed to go late for the first time ever.

I'm due the 17th and definitely don't feel any impending labor signs. I'm with the PP who said its kind of buggy not to know if it will be tomorrow or a month from tomorrow. I'm trying to focus on the positive. My round stomach makes my stretch marks looks nonexistent. I probably won't lovingly stroke my pp stomach all that fondly.

You're not alone, OP! "Official" due date the 24th, with zero signs of impending labor. And I need all the time I can get, since baby is still not vertex.

I'm due on the 17th, but this is my first, so I'll probably have her after that.

I *did* want her to be a week or two early, but she's breech, so I need all the time I can get too! I've been telling her, "I don't even care if you want to stay in until April, if that's how long it's going to take you to turn around!"

I'm due on the 28th and I don't know how I am going to last! I feel like I am ripping at the seams. I, unfortunately, am rooting for an April birth, as midwifery funding begins in my province in April (and I'd love to see a little money come back to me). I'm torn between wanting baby out now, and wanting to hold on until April! I have a feeling this board will be empty when my baby makes an appearance, so let's promise to check in after babes are born!!!

I'm due on the 21st but both my kids were two weeks late so I'm pretty sure this one will be no different and will show up in early April...

I'm resigned tho and have been telling everyone (and myself) that I was expecting an early April baby. It will make anything before that appear early.

I heard it will only be funded if you start seeing a midwife after the funding kicks in. If you were pregnant before then, you're out of luck. Don't know if that's true or not, though.

i'm due on the 25th and am usually right on time so i have four weeks left. although one of my dd did come at 37 weeks so i am preparing myself for anytime beyond the first week of march.
have been having lots of bh and some cramping but i had that for a full month before my last one was born so i am not getting too excited about that.

Due on the 29th (am I the last), but my longest ever pregnancy was 37w 2d so am hopeful of some action before then. Its been so long since I had a baby I've forgotten what to look for, feels like my first again, but I do feel like he has dropped lower and heaps of quite painful BH.
At least we are right in the home stretch now - remember the first trimester??

Yup, I'm last along with you Lillian. The 30th. Maybe one other mama, too, as I remember. But, yeah, I feel like no matter what, its forever away. My goal is to get to 36 wks for my homebirth, and then after that, I feel like come on baby! I totally wouldn't mind going at 37 wks. Ds was 36, and I felt fine at that gestation, yet this time I haven't felt comfortable or emotionally good since 32 wks. Ugh.

I'm due the 22nd, but I'm really hoping I'll go early! DS was born around 38 weeks so I'm hopeful. I can't imagine being pregnant for 4 more weeks!

They're still working on ironing out the details, and may possibly consider reimbursing for the birthing and postpartum portions if baby is born in April. I'll be sending forms in and hoping for the best no matter what.

I think I'm the winner here: due date is March 31st (okay, there may be a tie: any mamas out there?)
DS1 was born on his due date, I have no labor signs yet, and I don't feel emotionally ready- for some reason, I am starting to feel scared about labor. Like, who's idea was this?
Anyway, as physically uncomfortable as I am, it is probably a good thing I have some more time to get ready.

Due march 25th over here! Yes it feels like forever away one minute...but the next I am like "HOLY CATS" it could be any minute I better get my ducks in a row. On one hand I am in no rush because these are the last few days with my 2.5 year old as the only child...and because newborns are a TON of work. The other hand is saying come on out and say hi little one...I just cant wait to meet you.

I started loosing my mucus plug in the 36th week withDS...so that would be this week...I am definitely paying lots of attention for that. BTW...DS came at 39 weeks exactly.

I'm due March 14th and I think that's when he'll arrive (give or take a few days!) and I guess I'm one of the few who *isn't* ready for my baby to come! I'm 37.5 weeks, feeling good, and still have a few things on my list I'd like to have squared away before baby makes his debut... plus this is more than likely my last pregnancy and I want to make the most of it!

I may feel very differently in a few weeks though

I'm right there with all you ladies...... I'm not due until March 21st (give or take). I'll be 37 weeks on Friday & anytime after that I can have the homebirth I desire.
But I was 10 days late with my son so who knows when she'll actually come.

Oh man..... it feels like forever away!!
