I know I am surprised that there are so many of us at 38-39 weeks and so few babies already. I guess all the may babies really want to be born in may!

Expecting #9.  Always busy hsing.

Thanks for making me smile, I like the title of the thread! I have been thinking to myself "Now flip baby flip, come on let's flip baby flip..." instead of "dip baby dip" (for those of you familiar with the "Tootsie Roll" hahaha ) hoping the Babe will turn heads down.
I have been constantly checking in, expecting to hear more birth announcements, too! I hope everyone's feeling good, at least! Soon enough!

I was a little concerned earlier in the week that if I went now baby wouldn't be in a good position, but I do believe that he/she has moved into a true vertex now. We were oblique for a LONG time and I didn't think it would ever move. But now I have movement right at the top and way down at the bottom. I think we are still posterier though.

Wow, the title of this thread really brings me back!

I volunteer to be next! DD was 10 days late, so I'm perfectly OK with this one being 10 days early!

ScootchsMom, I hope this turns into an "I'm definitely in labor" update from you soon!

I'm not due until near the end of May, so I feel like I have A LOT of waiting left to do. Getting very impatient here...

I'm due May 11, but since I figured out my due date back in August, it's always felt late to me. I just feel like I'll go early. So watch, I'll totally go way overdue.
I'd love to go the 24th. That sounds great. Oh, no, I can't! M has 2 activities that day! I guess I'll have to go into labor that night and have the baby saturday. LOL! Wouldn't it be great if babies could tell us when they were coming?

My uncle asked me last night if I knew when my baby was coming. He said "Is this a scheduled birth?" (And I'm pretty positive he knows its a homebirth!) Oh well. I told him of course not and then everyone commenced to give me predictions on date, time and weight. I have them all written down Not sure what the prize is yet.

LOL.. now THAT is how you know you're getting to the end... you begin rationalizing and plotting what day, time etc would fit most conveniently.. from this day/time to this day/time but then not until Xdays later then this day/time to that day/time... lol I did that REALLY bad last pregnancy!

i'm ready ... wheres the sign up list?!

My baby shower is this Sunday. My uncle bought me a carseat last weekend, so I have that. (FIL gave us a toddler carseat..And said, "same thing." Uhh no? lol) So I'd prefer to wait till after Sunday. Then after that, it's fair game. I would not be upset if this kid decides to come on out.

My dad brought me his schedule since we'll likely end up being induced shortly and he watches the kids when I go have a baby. It looks like the (going in the night before for cervadil) 29th or 30th will work for his schedule, but they told me we may not be able to get a day that we choose. Bah. There should be SOME positive to inducing, shouldn't there, if I have to have it done for medical reasons?! Grrr!

If things go the way I hope I'll have a June baby. EDD is the 17th, but I'm really hoping this one is like DS and goes 42 weeks. I just have too much to get done first. So stay in baby stay in!!

I have to say, you are the first person I've ever seen say they WANT to go late, lol. I hope baby cooperates!

I'm prepared for this baby to come early, just please, please, not the first full week of May... my DH and brother have finals, DH has a big project to finish at work, and I'd like to celebrate my 25th birthday with my family and go to lots of movies that are coming out before we have our little one. And I've got friends coming over the week after that to help take down the mildewed ceiling in the bathroom (I really want that done before the baby arrives). But anytime after, say, the 16th-18th... that'd be fine with me!

I'm not sure what I want....I have alot of stuff to do, but I'm thinking, eh, it does not matter how much time I have, if I continue on my current daily routine (with my 3 year old), it's not going to get done anyway!
I am excited and impatient for baby...but at the same time, despite pregnancy aches & discomforts, I'm pretty darned sure life is going to be alot harder after the birth!
I was all positive about it for a long time, but now I keep thinking about the sleep deprivation, the spectre of crazy tandem nursing, potential sibling jealousy & upsets...aAaaaaaaah! Maybe baby should stay in a bit.
Oh! Also, I'm waiting on upmama.com's new fabrics for my sling, so baby can't come before that's sorted out!
