My DH told me to hold off until today, but that would have meant 20 more hours of labor...no thanks!

I would have loved to, but with only 7 hours and 15 minutes left of today and no contrax today it's alas unlikely. It would have been soo cool to have

Well, I had some crazy prodromal labor yesterday from 6 AM to 1 AM.

It then promptly stopped and today, nothing. No baby today for me.

I dunno, this is baby #2 for you right?

my #2 was 8 hours from the moment my contractions started until she was in my arms... and it was about 3 hours before I realized that darn backache might be something more than a backache!

yep it is baby #2, and after I said that I had a 2 minute contraction my first of the day... now my back is aching, but I still doubt it's much.... course I won't ever believe I am in labor till my water breaks... which could be a problem being 1 hour from the hospital, 1 hour from anyone who can come get DS and hubby also working 1 hour away - all in different directions haha

I so wanted an 8/9/10 baby, but I think I'm out of luck. Although, I did have dd in 5 hours, so I suppose if things would just get going....

But seeing as how I am so OVER being pregnant, toxic to be around, in constant pain and ready for baby to be here, I'll probobly go overdue since that is murphy's law, right?

Oh, I totally did NOT want this day to be the baby's birthday! Don't know why, just haven't ever since I realized we were in the range to make it possible.

Less than four hours to go and no signs of labor! I think we're in the clear!

DH pointed out that 6 days before my due date is september 8th... in many places in the world that would be 8/9/10... and for DH in the military it would be 100908

Originally, I was supposed to be induced today due to diabetes.. but both my MFM and OB are letting me go to 40 weeks. So, while it would have been very cool, I'm very happy that the little guy gets to stay in a little longer.

My due date is the 12th, and I've been hoping I'll be very close to it because of the Perseids. The general range is the 9th through 14th for the annual showers, so that's my preferred window. Starting to have low grade menstrual crampy achiness/backache, but no actual contraction type activity. Hoping this is the start of a couple of days of warmup to get me there!

I had no idea you were going for a HBAC, so happy you got what you wished for! So I guess my services as your birth buddy are obsolete now

Wish me luck for my HBAC...

Congrats! Yay for your HBAC!
GL< Fran on getting yours!

Not that it matters anymore, but my second labor was 5.5 hrs. Third was 4.5

However, I labor at night at deliver at dawn, so we're still shooting for the 24th, lol.
