I'm so happy to read all the new baby announcements but goodness gracious I am starting to feel like I'm the only one *still* pregnant! 

 

Wishing all those with babes in arms wonderful babymoons and for any still waiting, easy labor vibes (and SOON!)

I'm still pregnant. Not due until 1/18, and at this point I'm expecting to stay pregnant for a while - baby keeps floating back up and flipping posterior....on the plus side, if she keeps flipping like this, my floors will sure be clean........

Still pregnant, but my "due date" isn't until 1/15 anyway.  I've been walking around 6 cm dilated and 100% effaced for a while, but showing no signs of labor. shrug.gif  I guess that's why my labors are so fast once they do start, though.

 

I love these birth stories, too.  Can't wait for my own!

I'm not due til the 28th.  I'm assuming I'll be one of the last ones!  First baby + my mom went late with all of us.  Who knows, I could end up with a Valentine Baby!  I'll be depressed if I'm the last one!

I'm 39 weeks, due on 19th. Dilated to a 3, got membranes swept this am...no contractions. Just tired & feeling icky, blah.

Angela-ur 6cm and no signs of labor? OMG. I'm a 3 and no signs. I'm assuming there's no risk to being dilated & having no signs/contractions.

Due today - nary a sign of labor (well, I did have some prodromal the other night, but I think it was because I also had another stomach bug (ugh).  My first was 10 days late, so I could still be pregnant for a while.  Though of course, I'd rather not be :)

I'm still here, too ... 8 days past my EDD and feeling every minute of it.  This is so not what I expected for my fifth baby, especially considering that I usually go a week or so early.

Still pregnant here too - and having the same thought! I'm due the 21st but if this guy is born at the same gestational age as my first son, that would be the 16th.

 

I had a teeny bit of bloody show today so maybe labor is near...

I am still here but I am not due til the end of the month anyway.  It does make me anxious seeing everyone having their babies all at once though.  This month really took off!

You're sleeping through the night?  Impressive.  I'm up at least twice to pee, but usually more often because my hips are killing me and whenever I flip to the other side, I inevitably have to hobble out of bed to pee.  Blargh.  And a local friend of mine who was at least a week behind me had her baby yesterday in the big storm we had... (jealous!!!).

Still here as well, due date's not til 1/23 and it's our first... haven't had a cervical check since just after xmas, when it was still long and closed, but softening. Haven't had anything I could definitely identify as Braxton Hicks or other contractions yet. I've been having non-stress tests every week since week 36, baby's head down and doing great but my uterus is totally calm. I'm actually glad, since I still have a major work project to finish this week, and Mom's coming from out of town on Saturday and I'd love for her not to miss the birth. I've got a list of stuff to do before baby comes, and there are still a lot of items unchecked... most importantly, I've only halfway packed my hospital bag, and I need to clean out the freezer so I can make room for more easy meals once baby gets here.

 

Glad you started this discussion, I was beginning to feel like I was the only one in the DDC that hadn't popped yet, it's nice to know I've got such good company!

I was due on 1/6. I'm worried because if I go 2 weeks over I'll have to go to the hospital, where I would get a random OB. My midwives cannot attend me there. I am utterly terrified of having to deal with typical hospital BS.

I was due yesterday and still no signs of labor.  Nothing at all.  I'm trying to wrap my head around the fact that it could still be a couple of weeks.  That seems like such a loooooooonnnnnngggggg time.

I was due two days ago. I'm a first timer so it shouldn't be surprising I'm going over, but that doesn't mean I'm happy about it! I've always been super impatient, and the waiting is pure torture. I haven't had any signs of labor to encourage me, either. Also, she's posterior, and I've read that posterior babies can make you go late, so I've been working very hard on positioning and doing all the tips and tricks from spinningbabies.... but she likes it where she is. Hmph.

Still here, due the 28th.  Thought baby would make his entrance sometime this week, as I had been having stronger contractions and bloody show starting Friday.  But alas as of yesterday, everything has stopped and I am still pregnant.

Still prego too!  Due the 21st and who knows when I will go.  I keep telling people I don't mind because it is easier to carry him around in my stomach than if he was here already!  He will come soon enough.

I'm due on the 19th, but had dd at 42w+1 so am not surprised to still be here.  Trying not to hope too hard that this one will come earlier...  dd was positioned badly so that could be what delayed labor last time.  Or not...

still here too!  can't believe how many babies have been born already!  I'm due the 21st, but my midwife gave us a shock-tease last month thinking I could go at any time.  Apparently, she was wrong and baby's just super tall or something.  He/she is also posterior it seems and has been for awhile.  It's so weird - I'm ready yet I'm not ready.  Maybe the full moon next week will trigger some action for us.
