9/25 due date. Feel like crap! Promdal labor..ugh.

I am already 5 cm, 80% effaced and baby is engaged (as of last Monday). I won't get checked again until I'm in labor.

Getting acupuncture on Monday, we'll see what that brings.

EDD: 9/21

contracting off and on usually irregular during the day then regular in the evening and eases up at bedtime - nice prodromal labor...except that my cervix is changing which sort of defies the prodromal label.

Cervix: 1-2, ~50% effaced, nothing major, but a bit of a start.


I just can't believe I'm still pregnant. My BP is creeping up, but my protein levels are stable at trace to +1, so we're good for now :-)

EDD: 9/15

I have had regular contractions two nights in a row. Two days ago I was checked and my cervix was 3-4 cm. MW came over two nights ago and I was on the phone with her last night. Tonight there's no pattern to them....but contractions are low, crampy and I'm feeling more pressure.
We'll see! I'm okay with going early since my Dr. wants to induce me by my due date.

Still here... EDD 9/26. I have a decent amount of Braxton-Hicks, but nothing regular. Baby has dropped "way down there" according to my midwife, but she doesn't do internal checks and neither do I.

I'm about ready to give this baby an eviction notice! I developed PUPPP about two weeks ago, and I'm itching like CRAZY! It's making it hard to sleep, since every time I wake up to roll over I start itching again. Ugh. Baby boy needs to stay in another week, to give me time to finish prepping the house, but any time after that would be great!!

EDD 9/20

At my apt last week, I was 70% effaced, 1 cm dilated, and fully engaged.

I think I'm having contractions right now, but I'm such a noob I'm not sure.

I keep making deals with the baby. I wanted him to hold out until this past Friday so I could finish up a project at work. Now I want him to wait until Tuesday so I can enjoy the holiday weekend with my hubby. Next week it will be something else... I'm so ready for my baby but NOT the labor!

edd: 9/17

Since my first two were induced at 38 weeks *exactly* (that would have been two days ago if I had an OB this time around) I have no idea how much longer I could go.

Scary...but exciting too...

If only all the laundry was done. Maybe baby will stay in until it's finished LMAO!!

EDD: 9/26/09. I predict a couple days before hand. Dilated to 1 cm, 50% effaced, and I can feel her dropping. I also have two or three contractions every night around 7:30. Isn't that interesting?

Nothing happening for me that I know of. Just posted in previous thread that dd1 brought home some junk from school. She is now on antibiotics and feeling better. I was fine until today. Now, I am starting with all the symptoms she had.
As of August 25th I was 1 cm dilated and was checked again Tuesday...still 1 cm with cervix possibly shortened. How can they even tell if you haven't seen the same doctor twice?

Due 9/14. I am looking forward to feeling a contraction. I didn't have one with my son due to a c-section. Going all natural this time in the hospital. I have hired a doula to help me accomplish this!

nataliekat: Edd 9/10. Feel great! Tired because I was up last night with a few contractions. First time that's happened.

Want babe out because I'm SICK of worrying about my blood sugar. Otherwise, I could stay pregnant forever.

EDD 9/29, 37 weeks tomorrow. Yay for full term.

Having bloddy show, but I have a super friable cervix which lends me to bloody show every time my cervix makes even a little change. Although, I did a self exam this morning and my cervix is way up front and personal these days. I am 1-2 cm dilated, and having mad amounts of BH, way more than 4 an hour. And they are way more intense than they used to be, but still not coordinated with cervical twinges, so I am still calling them BH...maybe they are prodromal labor ctx, but I am not sure what exactly defines this.

Mama to 4yo dd Piper, loving wife to Dave and preggo for the second time...due in Early July!  Hurray!

newmomroxi: EDD 9/25 (according to OB) or 9/29 (according to me)

I'm full-term and was perfectly fine with going past my due date until yesterday. I started having some ctx yesterday afternooon (and loose stools, sorry if TMI) , although with an irregular pattern. Then all night long I would wake up to stronger (still not painful) ctx, period-like cramps, nausea, and backache. I didn't bother timing b/c I figured if it were the real deal I should try to sleep a little more. Well, lo and behold, this morning I wake up and nothing's happening. Seriously, I cannot handle this for the next couple weeks. In or out, baby, no practice stuff allowed!!

Hi Mamas! Libertybelle is still here. Sorry I haven't been posting much.

My EDD is Sept. 23rd. I'm 38 weeks as of yesterday and feeling pretty good. No contractions that I'm aware of, and no internal exams yet.

I went for my first acupuncture appointment today, and had my first cup of raspberry leaf tea. Hopefully those things will get the ball rolling. I'd love for baby to arrive in about a week's time. We shall see!

Married to my perfect match since July 2007 and joyfully expecting our first sometime around September 23rd!:

Due September 23rd, but DD was 2 weeks late, so who knows.

Lost my mucous plug two weeks ago, lots of contractions, and awful back pain. Hoping this one decides to join us a little earlier

Due 9/21, at 38w4d. Seems like I'm having a lot of Braxton Hicks but nothing strong or definitive. Going to acupuncture weekly, hopefully that is moving things along!

had Csection on 9/4/09 gave birth to Oliver Kevin!! Went into be induced on 9/3, 24 hours of labor, no results, broke water, no results, low heartbeat and went into surgery, 20 mins later, he was with us. We were suppose to have a c section on 8/31 but baby (who was breech 3 weeks earlier) had turned and they sent me home. I had a feeling that we would end up having a c section from the start and next time, I can pick my babys bday!

Forgotten to add my name here.

I'm due Sept 20 and feeling great, which is a nice feeling. I don't mind waiting another week or two for this baby to come- it's so hard to feel ready for the transition from 1 to 2 kids and it feels like I've been pregnant for so long that a couple more weeks doesn't seem like a big deal. The past 9 months have flown by so I now I'll be holding a baby before I know it.
