Can you believe it?

How's everyone doing, and is anyone still pregnant for us to send vibes to?

I wish I could say I didn't know the feeling! You won't be pregnant forever - just keep repeating that to yourself!!! You will have a baby soon - honest!

Yep - June is here and my due date of May 29th came and went
LOL. Trying to be cool because my first due date was June 2nd and then they changed it. I've tried walking only to have my feet swell up and I ate a whole pineapple but still nothing - just sporadic contractions LOL. I guess my little guy is just having too much fun in the bump and he's not ready to come out yet

I'll keep you in my prayers conniebonnie

Still pregnant.

8-11 days overdue (depending on which due date I'm going by).

Getting desperate now, as I really really REALLY don't want to be induced.

Can't believe that out of all the girls in this DDC, I'm one of the last ones left.

I'm still here too. 40+4 as of today. My feet really swelled today, but I was on them a lot. I did a lot of baking and laundry and not so much sitting with them up like I should. Oh well....Maybe all the standing and walking helped a little!

Labor vibes to all who need them!

One upside to being the last ladies in the month - the rest of us will be waiting along with you and will pay rapt attention to your birth stories!!!

Thank you for the labor vibes! : Saw my MW today and she recommended Evening Primose Oil and Red Rasberry Leaf Tea - but with the caveat of "it will only work if my body is ready" LOL

I guess I'll try it to help keep my sanity

Labor vibes and luck to all who are still waiting

Thanks for the vibes ladies! Hopefully it'll work soon

Had midwife appointment again today, with my 5th CTG now. It looked good as always, except this time showed a bit of an irritable uterus, so hopefully that means it's gearing up for something.

Went to the movies this afternoon to take our minds off things (DH finally got to see Star Trek and was giddy with excitement, how cute). Came home and had a sleep. Woke up feeling quite sick. Got diarrhea now and feeling generally sick.

Tomorrow we have an ultrasound to check fluid levels.

Star715 - I haven't tried EPO, but I've been on the RL Tea and heard that even if it doesn't stimulate the uterus much, it's good for recovery afterwards, etc, so it's still a good idea

Smithie - I keep telling everyone that I haven't given birth yet because I want to be the centre of attention

I'm here too, though I have moved over to the June board for the most part. No offense to anyone here, please know I am still overjoyed for all the May mamas and their babies! It's just too depressing to keep checking in over here and reading all the PP questions and stories everyone has when I am so far behind, I am really starting to get some pre-baby-blues.

I have an appointment in the morning, I guess I will find out about an induction date and maybe get a little treat like stripped membranes.

Labor vibes and big hugs, everyone!

I totally understand where you're coming from. It's quite lonely on here when there's not many of us preggers ladies left. I've gone from being really excited about everyone's daily birth announcements to insanely jealous!

Cool - I thouhgt I was the only jealous one. To make matters worse, there were 5 of us pregnant at my job... I'm the only one still pregnant the 2 girls who were due after me have had their babies Still trying to be happy for all who've made it - LOL.

As far as the EPO and RL Tea, it could be wishful thinking but I do feel a lot more pressure and discomfort in my lower abdomen and perineum. I also made an appointment for accupuncture next week just in case I'm still waiting. My MW said that typically the women she refers to accupunture typically go into labor before the appointment

So I made my appointment and hope that I can continue the trend :

I was supposed to have a massage today, but my massage therapist is also a doula who's been at a birth since yesterday and as of an hour ago is still there. I have a MW appt on Friday, but don't think I want to wait that long to have this baby. I'll be 41 weeks tomorrow. I knew that I would go late, but that stopped helping a few days ago!!

I finally made it - my little prince was born on June 4th at 5:21 am, 7lbs 14oz - thanks to the combination of EPO, RL Tea, Acupuncture appointment and the great vibes I received from the group. We are still in the hospital .. I will be posting a birth story sometime later this weekend.

Vibes and luck to all!

I finally had my massage yesterday and at my appt the baby was doing great. I am 41+2 and measuring 37 with baby's head nicely engaged. So now it's just up to her to decide when is the best time to make an appearance. I am not having anymore BH contractions, they are all the real thing, just fairly random and totally pain free. I am hoping with a full moon this weekend that something gets started!
