I know we're only halfway through the month, but with all the babies that have already come (combined with my preggo brain), it really seems like there aren't a lot of us left.

 

So....who is still waiting for baby?

 

I am - I'm 40 weeks tomorrow, and am anticipating being pregnant for at least another 1.5 weeks.

 

Who else is out there?

I know, I'm feeling very left out, even though I'm still over a week from my due date (the 25th). I'm ready NOW for this baby to come out -- plus I don't want the baby to have a birthday that will fall on Thanksgiving from time to time, and his older half-brother's birthday is the 26th.

Me!  40 weeks tomorrow as well and one part of me wouldn't be surprised to have a baby in my arms in the next two days (on day three of constant and increasing intensity prodromal labor) but then the other rational side of me says it could easily be another 10 or more days.  Maybe all of us Nov. 17th-ers will have their babes on their "due" dates!

Me!  I'm also due tomorrow.  I am feeling pretty impatient but I don't think baby is coming any time particularly soon.

Still here.  39 +2 today.  This is the longest I've ever been pregnant--my others were 39 and 37+2.  I am not good at waiting.  To make matters even more frustrating, nothing is happening.  No BH, no leaks, no nothing.  No amount of walking, sex, EPO, or RRL does anything.  I'm just huge and uncomfortable and grumpy.  crap.gif  Every day my five year old tells me that she's excited to meet BabySister and when will she be here?  I don't know, maybe NEVER!

Today's my due date...and no signs of labor yet.  I hope I don't go too far past my due date, as you all can understand, I'm ready for this baby to be earthside and to not be pregnant anymore!

Still here too- due 11/5.  I am just about going crazy!!!!!banghead.gif  This baby has to come out at some point!  I am tried of trying to co-ordinate every day with a back up plan in case I go into labor!!!!  I have had tons of prodromol labor and I 4 cm dilated, paper thin stretchy cervix, bulging bag of waters.  I had a S&S yesterday and today had bloody show and lost my plug(first time for me) and so I am feeling like things are happening.  Hopefully today or tomorrow, if I make it Friday-41wks, then I am going to cry!

Due tomorrow, as well. Didn't realize how many of us there were due on the 16th/17th! Maybe TMI - but Valentine's day was what got me and DP this due date, obviously I'm not the only one! orngtongue.gif

 

 

Thanks for starting this thread, Bobbi. It is really making me feel better to see that there are still lots of November mamas waiting for their babies.

Yes - we aren't the only 17th-ers left, Farren!  That makes me feel a bit better, although I fully anticipate being here until the end of the month.  My niece really wants me to have the baby on her birthday (the 25th), which is still a possibility, I guess.

I'm pregnant, too!  I'm trying to savor it-- I remember last time it was so strange to then be not pregnant. 

 

My EDD is Nov 22nd, so I've really been thinking this is the last week (DD came a few days after her EDD) and I've gotten REALLY achy and the midwife today said he's LOA and his head is really low!  So now I'm trying to be even more ready for the possibility of his coming at any time.  If he came on his due date or the 24th it would help our family towards a birthday straight-- we're ALL in the mid 20s of different months, so we think that would be fun.  I am very okay being pregnant for now-- I might say Ow ow ow ow going to the bathroom all night but I know it's not going to be for very long.  Now that MW told me about the low head and what the tenderness means, I am going to think even more positively about it, if I can. 

 

EEEEK I'm getting really excited.  That full moon this Sunday is going to work its magic on us, mamas!  And I am cracking up about V-day bringing on all these babies.  I was just thinking how all our kids are going to be able to track their conceptions back to right around either my or DH's birthdays, lol.

I know you've probably already been to spinningbabies to see their advice-- they should also have positions for during birthing to get baby to move well.  I know HypnoBabies has advice about back labor-- something about the belly lift?  Maybe the yahoo group for HB has some info on it.  But also my MW says that with experienced mamas, your body knows how to open up and let that baby out, and often baby will turn just so during actual birthing.  I hope it works out for you!

ME!! BUT, I got my food shopping done today - ALL of it!! We have sooo much food in the house now....so baby can come out. lol.gif It was one of the things in my head preventing me from being ready, yk? Now I'm ready.

 

It HAS to be tonight or tomorrow because...all 3 of our kids were born on one of DP's brother's birthdays (one was born on HIS b-day) so somehow my MIL & I have given birth to 3 babies so far on the same birth dates - and Dp has yet another brother whose b-day is tomorrow (11/16)!!

 

So I went to 4 different grocery stores...mom & pop wfs, WF market, TJ's and our local store. Plus I went to Goodwill because yk, baby needs MORE clothes. Then I came home and unpacked ALL of the food, brewed a really strong mug of RRL and now I'm going to go have sex *at least* once and will take care of myself with BoB afterward. lol.gif And perhaps I might have my mw do a more stretchy dilation check tomorrow. I don't think I'm supposed to do that since I was GBS+, but mw mentioned bringing labor on. I'll have to ask what she thinks tomorrow.

Haha, that's what DH begged for with DD's birth-- he was getting miserable at his then-job and that Friday was saying it would be great if I could have the baby so he wouldn't have to go back for a long time.  EARLY Monday morning, it started! :)

I'm still here. Due date is this Friday. Baby doesn't seem to be in any hurry to get here. I'm growing impatient though. Contractions every single night is just plain cruel!

I was due on the 8th and am still pregnant. My others were late (my son 8 days and then induced, my daughter came naturally at 2.5 weeks overdue). I am so ready to be done! Started losing mucous plug yesterday and had a lot of contractions, but they fizzled off.

Due the 13th and still pregnant, which is normal for me.  I usually go past 41 weeks.  All of this rather intense prodomal, losing my plug over the past three days is not usual for me though.  We'll see what happens!

I'm just one day shy of 39 weeks, but I am soooooooooo ready. I feel like I've just gotten off a horse after riding for ten hours. My MW says the baby's head is very low and engaged, so I guess that's good.

 

We did IVF so this journey seems even longer than it would if I'd just figured out I was pregnant at four or six weeks. I've been working on this baby "project" since January!

 

Oh, and about a month ago DH was facing some awful things at work and said, "I'll give you a million dollars if you'll go into labor before tomorrow." ;) Now it's me who is eager for him to start his paternity leave -- I'm sooooo tired and I could use a break from being the only parent at home all day. Of course, I know when the baby is on the outside it will mean more work and possibly less sleep (though that doesn't actually SEEM possible at this point)...
