I so know how you feel!! Every morning I wake, I'm a little disappointed that I am still pregnant. I never thought I would make it till 39 or 40 weeks. And it looks like I will be seeing my 40th week! I don't mind going that long. I'm not going to go be induced at the hospital just because I'm 40 weeks. I just really didn't think I would make it this far. But I at least need to hold out until after my husband's ortho appointment Wednesday morning. Then I can go into labor. I was kinda hoping for today, but its not looking like it.

Didn't get to sleep last night until 5AM.

I had cold sweats and a lot of shaking, it felt like just before you get sick except it lasted for hours and I never did. There was also a lot of terrible back pain. Not like contractions though, because it wouldn't go away. I'm wondering if maybe it was nerves. It was terrible, whatever it was and I would be happy if that never happened to me ever again. LOL

Still no labor, though. I wasn't really expecting it.

Still here

holothuroidea: Yikes. I've been plagued with insomnia, but the sweats and back pain sound like no fun. Do you know if anything in particular triggered it?

I feel fewer pre-labour symptoms than I did a week ago, and that's after DTD yesterday, walking tons and planting bulbs in my front garden today. I don't actually want to go into labour in the next 12 hours, because my MW is off call this weekend, which means I would have a different MW. I feel like we are just waiting at this point. I posted earlier that I though I would have a membrane sweep at my last appointment, but actually it's the next one. If I make it to Thursday, my MW will likely try to do one at 40 +3. I may schedule some acupuncture for the day before.

Had an US on Friday because I've been measuring steady at 37 weeks. MW wasn't too concerned, but thought I should go if it would set my mind at ease. The tech could barely get the measurements of the baby's head because she is so low in my pelvis, which probably accounts for the lower measurements.

Ok, be well everyone. Maybe several of us will be powering through to Halloween!!

Still here, can't believe I've passed my due date since my last FOUR kids were early! I go back and forth between OK and on the verge of a breakdown... I have had more false labor with this baby than with the rest combined. Sigh....trying to be patient, but getting sick of it! Not looking forward to being in the office tomorrow, thought for sure Friday would be my last day...

Hang in there....at least we're not alone!

I do love reading the birth stories!! Hope to read some of yours tomorrow!

I think the back pain was from all the walking I did yesterday. The sweats and shaking are probably from all the raging hormones and nerves.

I wouldn't mind having a Halloween baby (I think it would be fun!), but I definitely want this baby born in October. We have way too many November birthdays in our family!

Hey, mamas. I was due on Friday but am still here today. It's about 10PM on a Sunday night, pouring rain (and has been all day--very soothing sound on our metal roof!), and a great night to have a baby. The wood stove is going, the house is warm and prettily lit and very cozy, the freezer is packed with delicious homemade foods, the baby's first clothes are all laid out downstairs in the guest bedroom (where DH, 2yo DS, the baby and I will be living for a couple of weeks postpartum since it's on the same level as the main bathroom), the birth supplies are gathered together, and the doula and midwives are on speed dial.

Last night some very intense, regular contractions kept me up for a few hours but I fell asleep and woke up feeling nothing unusual. Today I lost two very large pieces of mucus plug and can't seem to stay out of the bathroom for long (so sorry for TMI), and the contractions have been coming again. I can talk through them but I have to sway a bit on my feet and breathe carefully to stay relaxed. Here's hoping that things will get moving soon!

One last thing: are any other second-time (or more) mamas having labor anxiety? I've done this before--I even did it at home!--so why am I nervous? Chalking it up to hormones...

Thank you SO much for the kind words, MamaFern! It really really helps to hear that the anxiety is normal.

For second time mamas ~ I'm not scared about labor persay but I do have a healthy respect for what my body will have to do again. I do have this irrational fear that I'm going to 42 weeks and then I'll be transferred and have to do a csection. Crazy, huh!?!

I'm having lower back aches, tummy issues but no contractions. DH thinks that it will happen to do. It would be nice, but I'm so tired of being let down thinking that I'm going to go into labor.

So today I've run a bunch of errands, cleaned the bathrooms and am now going to do about 15 loads since our washing machine is finally fixed.

Well, I guess I will see 40 weeks. Hohum. So I'll be getting the last bit of my house together. Regular day to day things. And start getting the holiday things ready. Got my gift list ready. Starting on my grocery list for this weekend. Will start a menu for the next 2 weeks (our pay period) in the next few days. Just a couple more cleaning tasks to do for this afternoon and then I'll be done with the housework for the day. Then to relax for the evening. If it isn't raining this evening, I'll go for a walk around the block a few times. I'm so ready to have this baby, but its not as bad as it was the last 2 weeks. Now I am actually patiently waiting where as before I was impatiently waiting. Lol.

I'm still here! This past Saturday had regular (15-20 min) mild contractions, and when I woke up Sunday morning, discovered baby has dropped down into position. Progress! The shape of my belly is so different. Haven't had any regular contractions since Saturday. Been a bit challenging with the Symphysis Pubis Dysfunction (SPD/PGP). Could barely walk last night and it makes my eyes water. So today I've put myself on bed rest! Just staying hydrated, snacking, resting, back and forth to the loo, etc.
No mucus plug business - does that always happen before labor starts? This is my first, so still figuring out the signs.
Next OB and acupuncture appt this Thursday. I would really, really like to go into labor before then.

I think it can happen gradually over 1-2 weeks (and can in fact, re-form)-- or more quickly, 24-48 hours (or less) prior to the onset of labor.

I will be at 40 weeks in about 4 hours and I am feeling really done. Had a couple of hours of hard contractions this afternoon... but as usual, they have stopped. Baby has about 28 hours and then this will be my longest pregnancy ever. Also, I think I am getting a rash on my belly-- not sure if it is just dry skin or what.

Thanks for the info Anne-Marie! Sending you good labor vibes!

Oh, and another thing, my baby has had hiccups every day - my belly keeps bouncing any book I'm reading :-) OB says that it's totally normal. I've been very whiney today. Irregular contractions from both a timing and strength stand-point. Having a hard time being at all comfortable. I know labor is inevitable, but geez :-)

So...I went into labor last night about three hours after I posted in this thread. Yay!

Good luck, mamas, and hang in there! Those babes are coming soon.

Pea- just saw your announcement! Congrats, again! I guess those in this thread won't be pregnant forever.

I'm still here, hanging out. I will be 40 weeks tomorrow, but we're using the later EDD based on the first ultrasound of next Tuesday. DW and I are enjoying spending 24 hours a day together as a family of two. I'm off work which is nice and she used to work nights and now will be a SAHM, so we're just enjoying our lazy time together. I'm pretty uncomfy and ready to go. But I'm trying to be patient. I have homework from my midwife of two orgasms a day. It's exhausting and not as fun as it sounds.

I've been kinda crampy but don't know if it's practice contractions or anything. I would love to have a Halloween baby, though!

Pea ~ Just saw your annocument. So happy for you.

Last night was the third night I had major preterm labor signs and really thought it might be the night. No such luck. Trying not to be upset.

I'll be 40 weeks tomorrow and am thinking that this baby is never going to come out. (If only DS hasn't been so early! )

DS, my sister and I are headed to the beach this morning so hopefully that will keep my mind of things. Then I'm going to do some baking this afternoon.

Happy due date to me!
My children are trying to decide what to do about the "baby chain" they had made of construction paper links (they pull off one every night at dinner) now that we are down to 0. They are inclined to start adding them back in.

Annemarie, thanks for the info on the mucus plug. I suspect I have been losing mine the gradual way over the past week (hope so.) No streaks of blood though. I have two dates, one yesterday (which I think is the right one) and one tomorrow, so I am officially overdue or not quite due depending on how I look at it. Feeling crampy today, but not ctx per se. Lots of strong painful twinges in my cervix. I wonder if I will be making it to my MW appointment Thursday... I sooooooo want this baby to arrive. Pumped up my exercise ball yesterday, which was literally the last thing I had to do. Just waiting now and trying to enjoy the last days of this pregnancy. Why does it get so hard at the end?

Just had some swelling in my feet today. That's new. I'm more tired today too, but I didn't get much sleep last night and none the night before. So I think 2 days of little sleep is getting to me today. I might lay down for a nap soon since DD1 is napping right now and DD2 has her Rapunzel movie on. She has watched that movie every day this week and last week. At least its a break from the Tinkerbelle movie. I like it, but not everyday. So I'm hoping she'll find a new favorite or go back to another one soon. Lol.

We're at 40 weeks today. My partner's been off for a week because work is idiotic and made her come up with a date she thought I would go into labor. So now, she will have less time to spend with us once the baby gets here since she only gets one more week of paid leave.

Monarch, your midwife sounds like my drill sergeant of a wife, except yours sounds nicer. She's got me running up and down stairs, nursing DS, trying plan humpy hump, and nothing seems to be working. : I lost my mucus plug a while ago, baby's really low, lots of contractions, and still nada. I'm not getting too impatient, but my partner is. Tomorrow is our next appointment and I think we'll see what she suggests.

I've been losing bits of my plug off and on for over 2 weeks now. That is the frustrating part.

quasar- I understand your partner's dilema. She wants to spend as much time with the baby instead of possibly spending most of the time off without baby.

Lots of strong cx last night, but nothing. Had my membranes stripped at my mw appt, figured why not at this point. Had a little spotting afterward, nothing dramatic.

I was actually starting to get used to being pregnant...then saw a cute little foot today while I was taking a bath (through my belly, obviously!) and got all excited/impatient to see/meet/hold her again...Can't be TOO much longer!

I had a spurt of energy this afternoon. Cleaned my bedroom fan blades and then cleaned my DS8's walls in his room. He had a layer of dust on the walls. His room is the worst and I can't seem to keep the dust from collecting on the walls. But for some reason I got to it right then. Then wiped the rail of the wall as you come down the stairs. So got all that done. Yay!

Hubby is watching Babe In The City. ROFL!!!!!!! Of all the movies he could be watching... this is the one he picks. He baffles me sometimes.

Hello due/guess date! Now, where's my baby?

I don't think I've ever been so emotional/tired/inpatient/physically over it in my life. I just keep thinking that everyday without this baby is one less day that my sister and DH are here with me. I'm having a hard time staying positive.

I hear you! I was crying this morning in the shower because I am just sick of it-- I broke out in a rash all over my belly and it itches like crazy. Getting ready to call my midwife, I think. I am so grouchy, I feel awful for my children-- they deserve a more pleasant parent!

That's really, truly for the mamas who have partners that will be spending less time with the baby as the pregnancy goes longer and longer.

Yesterday I took ds to the park and he dislocated his elbow, so we spent the evening in emerg waiting for the MD to pop it back in. I was bawling after he went to bed because I realized it is one of the last days we get to spend just the two of us before the baby arrives and he ended up hurting himself. I felt terrible that it happened because I don't hover over him the way some parents would with a 27 month old

I woke up with one (one!) massive contraction last night that shot down my legs and lasted just over a minute. I thought I might be in labour because with ds I went from nothing to full-on active labour. It just triggered some abdominal cramping and eventually I fell back to sleep.

Be well everyone!

I guess I'll be having a November baby. Due date was Saturday, 10/30. Nada. So uncomfortable, not sleeping at all, I just want to whine! Plus, my blood pressure was elevated somewhat at last OB visit, and now I've had headaches for the last two days. I guess I better call OB's office when they open this morning (yep, I've been online since 3am because I can't sleep).
