Additionally, my midwife is going away at the end of the week and another birth attendant, a good friend of mine, who was to take care of my son is leaving in 3 days. I am feeling the pressure and I'm sure that is not going to help get me into labor. I also have this fear that I orginally thought would be irrational but it is starting to pop into my head, which is that my pelvis specifically my sacrum is misalighned and preventing the baby from properly sitting on my cervix. I injured my saccrum back in November and despite many chiropractior adjustments it has been been problematic throughout my pregnancy. My point is that I am finding that my fears are starting to get the best of me. So here is to trying to stay positive that our birthing time will come and it will be a wonderful experience well worth the wait!!!!



It will be well worth the wait! And our bodies will work!!

I've been stalking for your birth story.



Thank you. I've met him once and even though it was at a terrible time (m/c) I really remember liking him. I'm hoping to not go in for the BPP, but I do trust that he won't try to push intervention unless there's a medical reason for it. Although, I'm not sure I'm actually seeing him tomorrow anyways. I think I'm just seeing a tech for the BPP. BUT if my plan comes to fruition I'm not seeing anybody tomorrow!

 

I have had some regular pressure waves I think, but they seem like they're starting to fizzle. It's just so hard because I have no idea what early pressure waves are supposed to feel like. With my DS I remember the waves that I felt, but by the time I felt any I was pushing and the epidural was wearing off and the feeling reminded me of a wave of electric current. What I'm feeling is so mild right now that I have a hard time believing that it's anything. But since it has periods of regularity I feel like it's worth noting. So I'll keep hoping that this is my body warming up! I did a LOT yesterday. This morning I started with hip circles on my ball. We just got back from mall walking, but I pooped out after not much walking at all. It must be because I did like 3 miles yesterday after not walking much at all! I am feeling the need to break and rest. So I'm going to heat up some lunch, kick my feet up, and relax for a bit. I want to encourage birthing, but I don't want to do so much activity that I'm exhausted when my birthing time starts!

 

Well hopefully you won't have to stalk much longer Bald Bull's mama. I'm confident (or at least telling myself that I'm confident) that before too long I'll have a lovely hypnobabies waterbirth story to share!

 

Edited to add: I'm trying not to get too excited here, but I have been having regular pressure waves(at least I think that's what this regular sensation is) since about 10:00am this morning. They've been roughly between 12-20 minutes apart and not getting more intense or closer at this point, but they're there and it's the first bit of regular waves that I've had. Holy cow - just had one and it was only 7 minutes after the last one. Okay - here's my plan. I'm going to take a warm shower because I need to wash my nappy hair and I'm going to try to get some rest. If it's not working up to anything it'll probably fizzle, but if it is, well, we'll see!

Good luck Crystal! Babe, come on out :) Your mama is ready to meet you!!! And wouldn't you like to not have to sit and get 'watched' tomorrow on a BPP? It would be much better to be in your  mama's arms already! :)

I'm with you...waiting.  I'm having pressure waves, but nothing to call the midwife about. No mucous...no bloody show...no loose stools...nothing that says, "Hey. This is getting real!" Still same intensity and distance apart as this morning.

 

Thanks for all the well wishes ladies. Today has been interesting, aside from just the pressure waves. We started off the morning with a visit to the clinic for DS. He has a double ear infection and pink eye. Poor little guy - he's been miserable and has wanted nothing but mommy all day. It makes me feel bad because I want these pressure waves that I've been having all day to turn into something so that I can birth this baby. But I know if I do he's going to get shoved off onto grandma and not to mention he's emotionally not in a great place to welcome his new sibling. I won't be free to hold him and cuddle him and I'll worry about him giving the baby pink eye. So I feel very torn right now. I want to birth so badly and I want to do it before the BPP tomorrow, but I want my little man to feel better. greensad.gif Am I getting a taste of what it's going to feel like to mother two children and think about the needs of both at the same time?

 

Well, whatever's going to happen is going to happen. So I guess I can't do anything about it anyways! I am doing my hip circles on the birth ball. I feel like baby is pressing down more than ever and I want to keep that feeling going.

 

I do have a question for those of you that have birthed and felt pressure waves (hypnobabies speak for contractions). Here's how I can describe it. Tell me, are these pressure waves that I'm feeling on and off? First of all, they're not really uncomfortable - I'm thinking this is because at this point they're very mild. In fact if I'm moving around a ton I have a hard time telling that I'm having one for sure. But when I'm sitting it seems more obvious. It feels like a pushing down sensation in the lower part of my uterus that pushes down towards my pelvic bone, presses for a bit, and then subsides. It does seem wavelike in that it  moves down in  that way. Does that sound familiar to anybody? Do you think I'm confused about what I'm feeling?

I don't know about the waves going down the uterus, but early on for me, they didn't feel particularly painful and I wasn't even necessarily entirely sure when I was having one. They started around 12:30 am, so I was trying to sleep, and they were uncomfortable enough to keep me from sleeping, but not really that uncomfortable or painful beyond that. If I'd been more active they probably would have been less noticeable. And I do recall prefacing each one with "I think I'm having another one" because I wasn't for sure if I was or not.

 

*crosses fingers for you*. You have been waiting so long and so patiently! I hope you get to meet your little one soon!

Those sound familiar to me!  I find I have two different kinds, I have the ones where everything gets hard and I can imagine it sort of bunching up at the top, but it doesn't hurt, and then I have some that feel more 'heavy' and low down, and those are more intense.

 

With my ds I was in a bit of denial about being in the birth process because it wasn't really feeling like contractions, just backache, and I had no bloody show or mucous at all until I was pushing.  Unfortunately that has set me up to think every back ache might be 'it.' 

 

Ugh my Mum just called and suggested my dates must be off.  I'm so sick of talking to people about it.  It was really really hard to not completely lose my shit.  I didn't take it very well... I know that I wasn't sure about my dates but I was not *that* off!  She brought up how my pg blood test came back negative and that 'doesn't happen'... even though it happened to her WITH ME.  And she got an u/s and knew that she had been pregnant when she had her negative blood test.  It's no big deal, it's no big deal, it's no big deal....  Having a hard time keeping things positive at the moment redface.gif

Sorry about your mom. I completely get your angst here. I'm so tired of people's comments. I told DH that next time around we're telling everyone that our EDD is two weeks later than what it really is. I've had people checking in on facebook. I don't mind the comments that are "thinking of you" and along those lines. I get really pissed off by the people that feel the need to pop in with "Have you had the baby yet?" like every other day or so. I have flat out told everyone that we'll send a mass text and make a huge facebook announcement. It's not like we're going to have the baby and decide to keep it a secret. Ugh - someone did that just today on my wall. I was ranting to DH and he told me just to delete the post and that's exactly what I did. It was the best choice because every response I could think of was just mean and nasty and I'm not by nature a mean person usually! I will say this particular time was a friend that tends to annoy the crap out of me much of the time, so maybe that had something to do with it! Anyways, just saying that I can completely relate. I just hope our babies come before either one of us really flips out and loses it!

Need to vent big time. I had my BPP earlier today - amniotic fluid is low. I have an induction scheduled for tomorrow morning at 5:00am. OB gave me one night to try to kick start labor on my own so that I can keep my home birth. I just downed a castor oil drink. It didn't taste bad - I had it full of OJ and ice and slammed it so that I didn't have time to savor the flavor. OB did check me and I'm dilated at a 2 and 65% effaced. Of course he didn't think that was enough for castor oil to work. But I met with my home birth midwife afterwards and I think she feels like we have a decent shot. I need this to work. I don't want an induced hospital birth. But even my home birth midwife agrees that given the # on my amniotic fluid, it's too low to warrant continuing the pregnancy past tomorrow. The upside is that I will have a baby in my arms soon. The downside - and this is very very hard for me - I can't even talk about it right now without bursting into tears - if this castor oil doesn't kick in and jumpstart labor for me tonight I have to birth in a hospital. No water birth like I've been envisioning. No peaceful time at home surrounded by loved ones - including my little man who by the way turns four tomorrow and now there's a chance I won't even see him the morning of his birthday. We left him with grandma for the night so that I can be free to sit on the pot with my diarrhea and DH can be free to pack a hospital bag (something we should have done I know, but felt like we didn't need to). Also, I never wrote a birth plan because I trust my midwife completely as far as our home birth. And now I'm being thrown into a hospital situation possibly, so I'll be typing up a birth plan just as soon as this is done. I really really really hope the castor oil works. If I had even the slightest inkling that something was going to be wrong at this BPP I would've done the castor oil over the weekend. I feel very upset and betrayed by my own body. I allowed myself to be induced at 4 days past my EDD with my DS and I made a very conscious choice to do things differently and trust my body and the process this time. And I feel very let down. I just don't know what else to say.

Lots of hugs for you. I'm sorry you are feeling let down by your body, I was feeling that as well when I made it all the way to my induction date. I hope you go into labor tonight and are holding your baby before the morning.

Awhhh hugs mama!

 

I was having a planned hospital birth and didn't pack a bag until I was in labor, don't feel bad about that!

 

Also, as far as a birth plan, have you considered just saying some version of: "I'd like a natural birth. Please ask before you do anything to my baby or me."  It worked for me, and has for others as well. Sometimes simple mantra is easier than a long list. You're letting them know that they need to check with you on everything. At my birth, they just started down a 'checklist' of things and asked me yes/no if I wanted or didn't and there was no fuss. We didn't do any vax/eye drops/no circ./etc. and did delayed cord clamping/babe staying with/on me for all early things/coslept, etc.. I have several friends who work OB and they said that usually the longer the birth plan...the more interventions you end up getting...just some kind of bad karma or something?!

i guess i don't post in this due date club enough for anyone to know who i am. i had my baby on the 7th. i guess that was 41 weeks and 1 day.

 

my son was born on 42 weeks and 1 day so this baby came sooner. i had 5 days early labor stuff then i had a super fast active labor and midwife who lives less than a mile away did not make it in time for birth showed up a few minutes later. my daughter nellie was born in water i caught her. my husband and friend where there but i did it all myself. it was sort of intense and scary for me.

 

glad baby is here now though. named her nellie.

We had ours this morning!  A little girl, 7 lbs 15 oz, lots of brown hair which is a shock after two bald/blond kids!  Our UC went fine but having a baby was way harder than I remember.

Congrats!! And woohoo on a UC! And congrats to the other late June mamas who've had their little ones as well! I've been MIA on this thread since our new little one arrived. I've scanned the thread here and there but haven't really had a chance to sit and type. Hmm... wonder why? lol

Congrats mama daba on the arrival of your little one!!

 

And weliveintheforest - I was hoping that by the time I got around to getting on here I'd be hearing about the birth of your little girl! They were worth the wait, huh?

Yes they were :)  

 

Now I am just dealing with afterpains and trying to keep this little one happy... After going through all the trouble of giving birth I need a few days off before I can deal with afterpains and round the clock nursing!

Man the afterpains were killer with this one! Someone warned me they can get worse with each one, and they were right! I'm 10 days post birth and my small tear feels all healed up. I still can't believe my biggest baby was my easiest recovery! Good thing she came too fast for my OB to do an episiotomy...that's the one routine thing she does for some reason, but she didn't have time! And I only ended up with a little tear.
