Im beginning to wonder if I should have joined the November due date group?! This last month of pregnancy has been so full of surprises with the MAJOR changing of my "due dates" that Im beginning to wonder if this babe will give me a Halloween surprise! I just REALLY want an October baby at least...
I'm still pregnant too. boo. I've been having pre-labor cramping/contractions and baby's head is down really low so my hips are achey and i keep getting her leaning on my nerves which shoots crampy pain down my inner thighs. super fun. I wake up every 90 minutes at night to pee, and she's really running out of room, i don't know where she thinks her feet are going... but out my side/into my stomach/lungs is getting really annoying- I want her OUT! My husband thinks today is the day, but i don't feel any different than yesterday or the day before. My midwife said I wouldn't go past halloween, and she's really intuitive. I'm starting to get really mad at everyone who says mockingly/teasingly "you know... it's your first baby, so you'll probably go a week overdue at least" STFU!!! this random lady walking down the street said it to me and I nearly flipped out on her. I would so much prefer "you look like you're about to pop" to the NEGATIVE and unsupportive former comment. Can't you see how goddamn uncomfortable, anxious, impatient, UNCOMFORTABLE I am?? ugh.
I went to go see my friend who just had a baby yesterday and I got to say, even with all the diaper changing/feeding constantly it looks a hell of a lot better than feeling claustrophobic and unable to move in my own body. I have a hell of a lot more compassion for disabled people and fat people now.
Gracisue...if they are going to push induction could you try asking if they were willing to monitor the amniotic fluid levels and heart tones until there is actually a need to induce? I know given my current situation if I had an OB or even a CNM through an OB practice they would have probably induced a LONG time ago.
I'm thinking of you ladies!! Here's hoping you all have your babies soon!
