ME!! Due on Sunday. Went to the chiro yesterday and I think the baby has dropped more since things feel so heavy this morning. But I'm not feeling as horrible and desparate as I was last week (at least so far today!) so that's good. I guess I could do 2 more weeks of this if I had to. I'm thinking of asking mw to do the "stretch and sweep" next wed if I'm still preg. Haven't ever tried that before........

Me!

Today is my EDD and I'm still feeling pretty good. I was miserable over the weekend when I had to miss my cousin's wedding, but now that it's over I'm mentally okay again.

I took DS berry picking this morning and I'm looking forward to some naps this afternoon- one for each of us

I've been having some period-like cramping every morning, early, but it always stops when I get out of bed. Otherwise no indication that anything will happen soon.

Me, but we have some great signs of early labor this morning so hopefully I won't be able to say that for much longer!

Me too! I have ctx all night and day, but they are more crampy at night.

I'm not due until Friday, but I broke down at my appt on Monday and got checked. I was dilated 3cm, 100% effaced and the baby was at 0 station! So, I had my midwife sweep my membranes. She said she could easily stretch me to 4cm. I have had tons of mucous (snot-like with brown blood) and last night after a particularly exhausting grocery store trip, I had red streaked mucous. Hopefully things will get going soon! I just want to meet this little one!!

I'm still here! I think I'm due the same day you are, LizzyQ- June 29 (actually, June 27 by conception and early u/s).
I thought for SURE that last night was the night. Every time I woke up, I had crampy very uncomfortable contractions that went in waves (different from any I've had so far), that happened pretty regularly, and that moved into my thighs, back and upper ab. But then they just stopped. And I was sad hehehe

So I'm still here. I have a m/w appt today, and I think I'm going to have her check me. If my cervix isn't ripened, I'm going to seriously consider acupuncture very soon.

Over here! Due date's the 28th but she's showing no signs whatsoever of planning on leaving her comfy little nest. I'm fine with that for now, I'm in no rush.

Still waiting here too . . . 40 weeks tomorrow. We have no reason to believe that anything is imminent; dw seems perfectly comfortable and happy. Though she did say this morning, "this could just continue for another two weeks?!" which I thought was a good sign, that she's getting closer to that feeling of just wanting the baby OUT NOW. I think it will be at least another week, but I won't be disappointed if I'm wrong .

Still here. edd was June 20th. Still same ol same ol. Ctx on and off, minimal sleep, fun stuff. Don't know if I am dilated or anything. Considering castor oil if she hasn't come by this weekend, but I really don't want to deal with the vomiting or pooping. Oh well.

Baby is still moving around fine, she seems happy in there, darn me for being such a comfy place for her to be....

Hang in there mamas.

I am popping in from the July DDC. I am due on the 1st, next Wed. As of today, I am 2.5 cm dilated and 75% effaced, and the midwife said the baby is really low. I am so eager to meet my little girl. I had my DD at 38 weeks, so mentally I already feel overdue!!

I TOTALLY understand feeling overdue, even before the EDD. Ds was born at 38w, and I'm past 39w now and feeling quite overdue! lol.

My appt went well. She said my cervix was "pretty soft" so I'm going to skip on the acupuncture (getting there would be a pain- I barely fit behind the steering wheel and it's really uncomfortable). I'm going to continue with EPO just because I bought it
He's head down, and engaged but not dropped.
I'm 2cm dilated, and half effaced. Though I know that those numbers are all but useless! It was the softness that I wanted her to check for, so I could plan accordingly.
I opted not to have a stretch and sweep, but did have her massage my cervix with evening primrose oil.

As for feeling overdue-- I am sooooo there! DS was 38w (by my dates) 36 (by my "mw's" dates), so yeah, at 40w4d, I am feeling VERY overdue... Anyone know where the magic "labor button" is???
I will pay to know....

.
I took castor oil with DS1 when I was 41 weeks and the pooping wasn't really that bad. I am a regular pooper so that might make a difference.. I drank a cup of coffee in the morning to clear me out.. then took it with some juice and pooped a couple more times and that was it. No vomiting for me either.

Not telling you what to do either way.. just that it doesn't have to be as messy as it is for some.

I took 2 tbs, and then an hour later took one more tbs. I took it around 11-12, water broke about 4pm, went into labor about 5:30-6:00 pm (had baby at 1:20 am).

Oh it's so tempting!!!!! I'm going to buy some apricots and drink some coffee over the next couple days to try to "clear out", so hopefully it won't be too bad for me either. Thank you for the info!! At this moment in time I am trying to give her till Friday night to come on her own, but we will see if I can hold off that long...



P.S. heeheehee I just noticed that I seem to really like the 'eyes-roll' guy.. I use him a lot!! heehee

Good idea (if you decide to do that.. and/or baby doesn't come first)!

Does anyone else not have a name picked out? We have a list of 4 names, but can't decide on any of them, so we are waiting until the birth to meet him first. We had DS1's name picked out from the beginning.. so it's a little weird.

Yes!! Same here. We have some possibilities, but it's still up in the air. Everyone keeps asking too, which doesn't help

I swear I have looked at 10,000+ names, and I only like 4 enough to use them (I do like others but the last name is very hard to work with).

My MIL, of course, dislikes them all! I sat down with her and looked at the top 1000 names with her, and explained every single one, and why it won't work, or why I don't like it.. we have very different tastes. Finally, after all that I said, "you will love him no matter what his name is"

I still wish we had one that we were set on though.

We haven't really settled on a name. *I* know what his name is though- it's Jonah Xavier. It just feels so right- when I think of him, I think "Jonah" and ds has decided that he is Jonah as well. I haven't told dp how sure I am though.
DP's not totally sold on it, though he likes it, because of the Biblical connotations. He LOVES Xavier, but his cousin has a ds named Xavier, so that's out.

Our other option is Devin Andre, which I like a lot, but just doesn't feel as right as Jonah.

I know what you mean, Becky.. this baby has been "Oliver" to me form the beginning.. but a few weeks ago DH said that not only does he not really like Oliver too much (says the name reminds him of a turtle ).. but he doesn't really like any name at all. The only other name we can agree on is Jasper (the one MIL hates the most)... and I like it enough... but I also have an association who named her son that.. and we also have Griffin and Xavier on our list in case neither of those work, but I am not in-love with any of them.

I was really hoping this was a girl.. I used my most fave boy name on Sebastian already.
