I just realized that March is almost over, so most of the March mommas have probably had their babies right? Well not me, I was due March 14th and am still baking. Anyone else? how are you feeling?

I'm still here.  I was due on the 17th.  I've been having contractions for days (weeks, really).  My midwife is on her way over to sweep my membranes this morning.  I hope this works for us!  With all the worries of a big baby from gestational diabetes and now my blood pressure getting a little higher than normal, I would like to meet my baby soon to make sure he is healthy and we don't have much longer to make this a successful home birth.

I'm still here! I was due the 17th, so I'm 41 weeks today. I might go another full week if this baby follows in her older siblings' footsteps. I have a midwife appointment today so I'm looking forward to hearing a good strong heartbeat and being told everything looks and sounds great still. She's still moving around enough in there to keep me feeling pretty content about her staying inside, but I am very eager to get this show on the road!!

still no baby for me yet either. I was due the 14th and the 22nd (the 14th from a guess of my LMP because I was so busy I didn't chart that month, which would explain how I got an oops pregnancy, the 22nd from my 20 week ultrasound). his head moved a little higher yesterday and I'm passing a little more mucus, so at least seem to be making some progress. I never thought I would make it this long, DD was born 9 days before the due-date. I'm completely avoiding everyone at this point, feeling very much like a watched pot, and the fact that I've been feeling completely done for the last few weeks isn't helping.

I'm still pregnant, 40+4 today. No signs of anything. I went to 41+4 with my DD, so this isn't surprising at all. :)

Trying not to feel bummed that an induction may be in my future.  On the bright side, I dropped early in the week & am 2cm dilated.  I'm 41+3 today.

Yeah, I'm 40 +3 today.  Not so bad, but I woke up feeling kind of anxious--anxious about maybe having to "do something" to try to get the baby to come.  I just want him to come on his own--and he still has time, so I need to just chill!!

I'm still pregnant! But my due date is today, so I wasn't expecting a baby yet. My first kid was pretty late. Getting lots of crampy contractions at nighttime, but less during the day.

 

Neuro: I'm so excited for you!

I'm still hanging about and pregnant!  Due date they originally gave me is March 29th, which is this Tuesday, and the one I have stood by the entire time.  The due date based on sonogram sizing was the 19th, and I already proved them wrong on that.  I still haven't dropped, but Alistair has been VERY active the last week and a half, and I can feel when he is trying to position himself into my pelvis, but no contractions, no loss of mucus plug, nothing.  My doctor wants to start talking inducing if I haven't delivered by Wednesday (my next appointment) - but I have other plans to do with a prenatal massage and foot reflexology at the spa at my local mall.  :-)  More natural.  I won't be induced.

Oh, I'm not even going to tell my ob!  I talked to the prenatal masseuse today to find out more, and I like what I hear!  Also, got a bit of info on helping baby to DROP.  Something that is one of those tall tales, but has nothing to back it up, but the stories have been going around for years.  I don't remember the word I'm looking for...Anyways - that "story" is hanging bells at your waist or ankles - that something apparently to do with the sound of the bells will help drop baby deeper into the pelvis.  :-D

that sounds like a really cool wives tale! i think my baby has dropped, but there's still little activity. i am thinking i'll go over 41 weeks at least. my first child dropped weeks before i was induced. for me, it translates into constant peeing, heartburn, and annoying cervical sensations. lol i almost wish he'd stayed up!

I took Zantac before bed as a preventive measure for heartburn, since I've been getting it every night - unfortunately, 20 minutes later, I still had some pretty good heartburn.  I'm sure pepperoni pizza, and snagging the peppercini didn't help me any - lol.  So, I'm just chugging along.  And it felt GREAT to sleep in till 9am this morning.
