I am here, 37 weeks. Hoping and praying that something will happen.
Trish~mama to Kaelie 5/03, Amelia 12/13, and someone new coming 11/15, surro mama to Aidan 2/08 & Ellyss 6/09,
Carlin - loving life with DH and 2 amazing daughters
Midwifery Student and Mama to 2 daughters and 3 sons.
I have given birth a variety of ways and I am thankful for what each one has taught me.
I hit 40 weeks tomorrow. I guess I had the 7th in my head for so long (even though it wasn't my due date) that now that it has passed I am just trying to relax and see the advantage of having a few more days/weeks. Go read some of the PP threads in the May 2009 DDC, definitely makes me appreciate a few extra days w/o the ups and downs of a newborn. (After-pains? That is starting to freak me out a bit...)
This babe is still very welcome to come ANY TIME. Please send him or her the memo....we are ready and waiting!
Anyway, I'm enjoying having some time to clean up my umm not-so-clean-and-tidy house!
Today's plan - get a bunch of stuff to free-cycle, cut the grass, take dd to music class and generally just keep moving - it makes the days go by SO much faster. Hang in there mamas, it won't be too much longer!
Anyway, woke up from my nap yesterday and BabyPie had moved. I am ever so thankful. It seemed to be struggling to find a good position and felt like 'his' (dont know gender) head was caught on my pubic bone. PAIN-ful. Now, all that pressure is moving down and out. Feels so much better. Much more like it should. I also woke with the urge to go walking and clean my house. Wow. All that after having Zero energy all week and feeling pretty useless.
Now it is 2 am and I can't sleep. Was having odd cramps and just could not go back to sleep so I got up to eat and see what "the internets" had to offer.
Thinking going back to bed may be a good idea. I have a dreaded appt with my oversight OB tomorrow and I need to be rested. They want a fluid level check and my blood pressure always goes up when I have u/s. Man I hate those things!!! If only I could call and say I am in labor instead of going...
What pregnancy does to my head:
What new babies do for my heart:
SAHM CrossFitting mama to DS (6) and DD (3) and surprise #3 due in September!
it doesn't help that the babe has moved anterior (which I know is good for birth) but I don't feel movement as often or easily as a few days ago so I keep freaking myself out. I'm super comfortable staying pregnant otherwise though, which kind of makes me feel like Ill go late! I am NOT looking forward to all the comments at work though. I took today off, hoping babe is just a day late instead of a week, but it'll probably be more like a week
mom to z (June 2009) and m (may 2011)
I need Bun to wait til after next weekend anyway ~ I have way too much to do this week to have a baby. My schedule is full, kid. Stay put til after Saturday
For me, she needs to wait minimum until Wednesday. THEN she can come out. I'm just 37w2days today though, so I believe I'll be around for several more of these weekly check in "Still Here" threads.
