I'll go this weekend or early next week (scheduled C, vasa previa), but every time I want to say "I'm next!" someone has a baby the next morning. So, who knows? But I'm soon. Heck, we're all soon!

I hope I'm bringing up the rear as well. My sister turns 21 on July 11th and I want to go on her bar crawl with her two hours from home (no, I will not be drinking). I don't want to go into labor then!

I'm afraid to even guess. My EDD according to fertility friend and my ultrasound is actually June 29th. My EDD based on my cycles as figured by my MW is July 3rd. I went a full 21 days over my EDD with my daughter.... but she had her hand on her head and never descended or pushed on my cervix at all until i had been in labour for hours (days!) so i don't know if that indicates i'll go over with this one or not....

This baby's head feels like it's already in my vagina LOL, i seriously can't imagine going overdue this time.... so i guess i'm soon! I'm ready!

Awesome that baby's locked and loaded this time!

So interested about your baby's hand on her head. I keep feeling this little guy rustling his hands around his head but actually, atm I think he's engaged. Interesting though.

I've just recently reached the mentality of "I'm ready to not be pregnant, but I'm not ready to have a baby"....so I'm guessing I still have a ways to go (or maybe that's wishful thinking!). With ds, it wasn't until I fully accepted my fate, so to speak, that brought on labor. I remember thinking "this baby will get here when it gets here and I'm fine with that." The next day he was born.

I'm 36 weeks by the way, so let's hope he bakes at least another week or two!!

Enjoying life with DH since 05/04 and our two boys Oliver 02/07 and Theodore 07/10

I have predicted I will go on the 26th, so I'll have to wait and see. I think there will be at least a few that will come before me.

I'm was thinking I would be bringing up the rear (due July 25th) but now I'm not overly sure. We get possession of our new house in a week and I'm 37 weeks a week after that so I need this guy to keep cooking for awhile......I want him/her to be fat and full term.

I'm so not ready yet!

Still have a long to do list. I figure if I don't get the things done, baby won't come, but I know he/she'll come when ready.

Looks like I'll be sooner rather than later! Yesterday I was saying 2 - 2.5 more weeks. ( I was officially 37 weeks yesterday) But after saying bye to DH and the kids this morning - they are in another state 6.5 hours away for 3 days - I went to my appointment. Along with my high blood pressure that I've had for 5 weeks....good ole pre-e is showing up. had 300mg of protien in my urine. Dang! I thought for sure I was avoiding that! Cause I've gone weeks now with just a trace at 30mg. She said strict bed rest!

We're hopefully getting our new place June 30th! I am sorry you have to move, but now I don't feel so for buying and moving into a new place this close to our birth!


MegViolet- my EDD is July 29, too! That's according to my LMP but I have pretty long cycles and I've been suspicious of the dates all along. Unfortunately, I can't find my datebook wherein I had recorded my cycles (first trimester move right at Christmas-time. yeah, two moves in one pregnancy ).


I hope to be bringing up the rear as well, mommas. I've been convinced that babe will show up a couple weeks early, but maybe I'll be eating my words at 42 weeks That would be okay with me; I'd love extra time to really get ready inwardly. Right on EDD would be nice because
baby would share a birthday with a couple of pretty wonderful people I know.

I guess we'll see!


Happy and in love with my family!

It's nice to know I'm not the only one! I'm itching to get in and start nesting. We were transfered with work but it was a much wanted transfer......we're very close to family now. Luckily the moving is handled for us. The house was supposed to be done June 11th and then it was pushed back and I was not happy. We're still better off then last time..........we moved 7 days before DD's due date and she was born the day after EDD.......that was cutting it a little close Good luck with your move

After false labor on Wed (hard contractions 2 minutes apart and dilated 1cm over a 3 hour period but then everything slowing down and then stopping within 12 hours) but having contractions every 5-20 minutes all day Thur and Fri, I'm just waiting for things to pick up again. Apparently this can last for weeks though (even for a third birth). In the past it has taken hours (12-24+) of contractions 5 min apart or less to get any dilation from me so Wed strong start and then stall has been very different. I feel like I could get things going again any minute but then I might be laying here listening to 4th of July fireworks and still be pregnant. But I'm feeling every instinct to be left alone, in quiet and dark and frequently get urge to squat. We'll see........

I'm 37.6 weeks and ready! I know its early bla bla blaaaa. But I am very excited about this birth, its my first at home!! I want to go into labor anytime. Sunday or Monday would be good. (are you listening uterus, baby and universe!?!!?) I have done everything I can to prepare myself for being patient. Set up things to do every weekend till 42 weeks. Set up a countdown to 42 weeks. And yet... I guess it didn't work. I am ready ready ready. I am so excited for who ever is next, I am obsessed with birth stories. Bring it on ladies!

I really wish I could get the house in order. At least clean the kitchen & bathroom...they are really bad! And with everone gone, its a perfect time. But my BP is really bad this morning My diastolic wont get back down in the 80's. I've been trying for 3 hours to chill and its gone from 102 down to 93-95.

My guys camping at the beach had a rough night - my DH wants to come home this afternoon I'm trying to talk him into going somewhere else that would be fun - after they get done playing in the water today - and geting a hotel room to get some sleep & come home tomorrow. Maybe go visit another state park around there. Dh and DS17yo don't travel all that well, so they were already a little out of sorts and head achy. Everyone was crashing out at 10 last night, when a group of 20yo's started setting up camp & drinking within spitting range. I suppose all the younger kids slept. But between the noise, lights and sounds of a bunch of 20 yo's having sex...Dh & Ds got most an hour or 2 of sleep. If he came home today, he'd have to leave at lunch time to make the 6-7 hour drive before he's totally exhausted. I hope he gets a hotel somewhere away from the beach tonight & gets some sleep, then drives home tomorrow afternoon. They can go to some caverns or a waterfall and have a little more fun. I hate for them to have gotten so exited for there vacation weekend & drive all that way for just a day in the water. I could have planned a closer little getaway for them to enjoy!

I'm moving too! We sold our house and will be moving next weekend at 38+ weeks !! I will be packing this week, but we are hiring movers for the actual moving part. It is just so stressful, we are moving from our 3000sf house into a 1000sf apartment while we look for a business and another house to buy (hopefully only 2-3 months). I have no idea what we are going to do with all of our stuff! (storage I guess) It's amazing what you can accumulate in a few short years...

Oh, and we are planning a homebirth, so I HAVE to get the apartment situated ASAP!

I wanna be next! puh-leeeeaase???
I'm so totally, completely, absolutely ready. Ready, ready, ready. Everything is set, clean and washed, bought and paid for, packed and by the door, squared away, checked off the list, etc., etc. etc!

EDD is July 1st. My latest hopes are resting on the 26th (full moon and all), but really, that is the last date before which I won't be going absolutely insane. I know, I know, that's still even before my "due date"...but everyone got me geared up thinking I'd go early. EVERYONE. Bastards.

My body and the baby don't feel like they are getting prepared for anything. I feel like I could be pregnant for another couple of months at this rate. Not too happy thinking about that...that's impossible right? The baby MUST come out...soon right?
But I've had it up to "HERE" with my aching ribs, peeing, and being uncomfortable in the most comfy place in our whole house- our bed. I just feel like crying every night before bedtime because I know how fitful the night before me will be.

For whatever reason, I had a dream last night that you had given birth. I guess it wasn't predictive?!! Soon soon soon!
