I'm so sorry that things are so rough for you [[hugs]] I can only imagine the mental toll it's taking on your body (which, honestly, could be way worse than anything physical!!).. I hope that baby is simply getting you totally ready for the best, most awesome, swift and empowering birth ever!!! (heck, that's what ya gotta hope by this point, right?!)!!

I know for sure that I am nowhere near on the same level as you.... but...

My body has never spontaneously gone into labor on its own before. I've been induced at 42w or just about 42w all three times before in a hospital. With NOTHING happening prior.

But this time? Gosh.. I've had BHs, I've had back aches, I know my cervix is getting softer.. and just.. it generally feels like this baby is moving towards labor -- which is amazing to me! But with that.. I've gotten eager and anxious.. and my mental state for a while was *very* fragile. I just cried and cried one more for really not much more reason other than I kept psyching myself up every day that it could happen SOON and nothing was happening.

So yeah, for me, it's the mental toll on things. I have everything ready. My girls are VERY READY to meet this LO also.. and dh too (of course, the physical toll on him isn't anything.. so he's happy to let baby bake as long as necessary).

AND! I feel like I have to meet this baby before any name can be decided upon -- and for some reason this time around I'm SOOOO anxious/eager/excited to find out the gender and the name of this completely mysterious baby!

But how do we do that when our bodies are playing these nasty tricks on us?

I, too, and so excited to find out what our baby is and give him/her a name. I think this baby will be a boy- all new territory to me- and I just want to know for sure!!!!
Okay... this did make me laugh out loud... all of it... because I could have written every. single. line!!! lol ... Having never gone early (yet somehow thinking this time is 'different' .. but then feeling silly for even THINKING that!) ... AND, I'm thinking 'boy' this time as well.. and after three girls, gosh.. it would be a shock and I would love to be able to get used to the idea .. and heck.. I just want to hold this baby!!!

(except the roads here are crap today... hmm.... I keep thinking that's BOUND to bring on baby, right?!? lol)

I'm only 35 weeks now, but I was like this with my DD who was born last January. I know how you feel and I wish I could give you a hug. It sucks big time! My mental state was, oh my God, horrible. I am hoping and praying I don't go through this again..

Hope it's all over for you soon, Mama!!
