Anyone else feeling like this? Or I am I the only one haha.
mama to DD (7), DS (3.5), and another DS arriving in August!
Some contractions here and there, I even had two that were 8 minutes apart. Means nothing. Ugh....there are so many babies being born every day, it makes me anxious and excited!!
But other than feeling miserable and having pubic pain, nothing real in the labor department.
AND, since I'm kind of complaining already, I've had a few breakdowns lately,DP has ben bedridden by food poisoning, DD just woke up with a cold, and then gave it to me! I have a sore throat and feel like crap all over. WHICH, I might add, makes me even more discouraged because I have read that your body will wait until you're not sick to allow you to have the baby. Now, whether that is true or not, I don't know, but it sure isn't good news right now.
Oh, sorry to rant, don't mean to take over your post...just needed to get that out, I guess.
I got *nothin'* happenin' over here either! Except, I was due on the first! No discharge, no cervical change no contractions... the baby hasn't even dropped!
I'm losing it!
I think I'll have the baby this tuesday or wednesday around the full moon.
I didn't feel any prelabor stuff with my last ds.
Honestly it's weird to be waiting for something so major and just feeling like it's happen anytime.
I did make a "birthday cake" last night. I think we'll just eat it today
Glad there's still some of us left!!!
2-3 cm for weeks now, but no other symptoms that baby will be here soon. No loss of mucous, bloody show, or loose stools. Everytime I see my midwife, she says that she is surprised that she hasn't gotten "the phone call" from me yet. UGH!! Seriously, how can I have a 12hr period with contractions that eventually fizzle out? It's very depressing. Thinking maybe this baby is really enjoying his home a little too much!!
I had mild cx all day yesterday and the day before. Dh keeps telling me that I should at least call the mw, but I haven't because they really aren't anything. It so is messing with my mind, because I am totally ready for them to be something.
Nothing else though.
Plus I keep remembering that each baby is different, and even though my last 2 were at 39, this one could totally go to 40 or whatever.
But goodness there are already a lot of babies in this ddc.
I'm not "due" for 3 weeks, but my last u/s claimed my due date was July 6th, based on her size. I think that got my hopes up a little that this one would be earlier (I know, I know, u/s this late are WAY off).
It's also hard knowing that on one hand I'm very close to progressing...50% effaced and already starting to dialate...but I also *know* that women can be like that for weeks before they progress further.
It's SOOOOO HARD TO BE PATIENT!
It would be easier if there were some kind of countdown clock and I knew when it was coming. The best I can do is figure it'll most likely be in the next 2 weeks. Yikes, 2 more weeks of this!?

Tuesday is a full moon!!!
Lauren - mom to Lolli (09/23/07) and Poppy (07/21/09) and Ozzie (05/26/12)
I guess these are signs of something happening, but I know it csn still be weeks. I really want her to be a cancer though so I hope things continue to increase ...
By the way, I bought a pineapple tonight at the grocery store. I figure I will start munching on it tomorrow. At this point I'm trying anything...it can't hurt, right?
I am actually in no huge rush. I always get this way at the end, FREAKED out that I am going to ahve a newborn to look after, LOL!
Plus it has been unseasonably cool here which has helped. If it were as hot as it usually is in July I'd probably be dying to go into labour!
It doesn't help that both mw and ob told me I probably wouldn't go "late" because of the LO dropping at 36w- now watch me go to 42 after 5 grueling weeks of waiting...
