We're all getting so close! This is about the time it seems that the early babies start making their debut.

I know, wild to think about. I'm 7 weeks to full term and panicking about being ready. There's so much I still want to do before she's born.

Well, not only am I at the very end of the month, but I just know that this baby is happy inside me right now. I don't think I would ever go early. I feel so behind everyone! I am 28 weeks today.

I'm with you Spring Sun. I am due on the 24th, so, I am only a few days earlier than you. Not to mention, the fact that this is my first and the likely hood of having the baby early seems very doubtful to me. Let's just hope that we don't become part of the September babies.

I'm also not due until August 25th, so it's kind of crazy to think of this babe coming anytime soon. But also kind of reassuring to know that if it did for some reason...most likely he or she would do just fine!

My mom had 4 children, and 3 of them were 2-3 weeks "late". And she says with those three she knew exactly when she had conceived. Anyone know if it tends to run in families?

Who in the world ever wants to be that early? Sad fact is though some people are

My first born was born at 35 weeks.

My 3rd was born at 34.5 weeks, but came out just fine and came home with me from the hospital. I hope you were that lucky.

We were very lucky! Though she did have to stay in for a week due to infection (which now I question but I had no idea about birth and was very very scared for my baby).

Because of that though and my bodies reaction now there is some concern I may go early with these twins. So hey I may be one of the mamas holding their babies in a few weeks though really I'd rather not!

I am rather surprised I am still pregnant. I was just hoping to see the third trimester. I was thinking I'd have these babies by now... based on my history. If I make it to 35 weeks like I did with my 4 and 7 yr old, that's only three more weeks!

Another 32 weeker with an August 2nd DD.

My feeling is that we're not making it to August, and I'll probably start thinking "any day now" when the middle of July hits. Joseph was born 3 days before his DD weighing in at 9 lbs.

I am 32 weeks (almost) and my HB MW will attend me with some stipulations at home at 36 weeks. That leaves me 4 weeks to get through at bare minimum.

I spent Thursday with the med-pros due to some ptl... fingers crossed the meds do their stuff and this babe waits till August!

(However, I wouldn't mind if babe decided the first week of August was just right. As a vbac I face a pretty solid 41 week deadline so a little early is a lot better than a little late in my book).

I would have to go to the hospital. Local with midwives at 35 weeks and before that I would be at a larger hospital in a town 20 minutes away. If my placenta does not move I would have to have a C section. If I KNEW no matter what labor was going to happen, I would probably show up pushing. My babe is already engaged and the placenta is really not an issue. Just has to do with Hospital politics I guess.

Sounds like a plan: if preterm, wait at home as long as possible, and then head to the hospital. When I went into labour with dd, I showed up at the hospital and before they even checked my cervix, I was already hooked up to meds to stop the contractions. Had they checked me first, they would have seen that I was already 10cm and there was no turning back! And really, the contractions were probably what made her so ready to come out even though she was early. If I had just had a scheduled c-section, she might not have been as ready.

I, too, hope to go into labour before my scheduled c-section, so that my baby is prepared to leave the womb!

That would be GREAT!

I figure if I show up crowning, they can't "make" me have a Csection? LOL That would be SILLY.

Going early worries me a lot too, but I hope to make it to at least 37-weeks since anything earlier my midwife will transfer me to the hospital; mentally and physically I am not prepared for another hospital birth. But she seems confident I'll go all the way; the earliest I ever delivered was 36 weeks, followed by 40 and 41 weeks so I am hopeful.

Eh. I am due towards the end of the month and I always go late. I don't expect this baby until closer to September

In fact, my friend who is coming to visit me for the birth and after, is arriving on the 19th and I'm due on the 21st.

With my 2nd, I showed up pushing - leaking amniotic fluid all over the hospital with every push down the hall! If my hips didn't twist those babies like a corkscrew, I would definitely have been able to have a VBAC! I hope you have better luck than me, mama! Wait until the last possible minute before going to the hospital

It won't be me. My first was 3 1/2 weeks late. The seconds went right on her due date....So, since I am due in late August, I will just hope that I will not end up in September's DDC...

(ive posted this in 2 other threads, but thought i'd share with ya'll too)
Well, it worked for my girlfriend who as 38 weeks!
She's currently in labor, 9cm dilated, and I am heading up to hospital as soon as I drop DH at work.
She got her bloody show, and first contraction within 2 hours. 9pm bloody show, 10pm contraction, 2nd contraction @ 11. At hospital by 130, her DH called me at 215 said she was getting her epidural (she has had 3 major surgeries due to her endometreosis and opted a long time ago to get the epidural to avoid any of the rough part... I am pro-natural, but I understand in her case), and she just text me at 8:15 that shes 9cm.

Gosh, shes moving quick! I have been pregnant with her the whole time, and Im so exciting it feels like I am the one in labor! ahah I couldn't sleep all night and when I did it was dreams about her little man!

This is so wonderful! Looks like her body is really working for her!
-----------------

She is 5 weeks ahead of me, until her dr pushed her EDD up a week. So she was "really" at 38 weeks instead of 37. It really is putting it into perspective how soon our little one could be here. We had lunch and dinner yesterday and when we were at dinner her first real labor contraction came on. We knew the full moon was going to bring him out a week ago, and sure enough, he'll be here any minute! I am so happy!!!!!
