Whoa...so who's left besides me and Ajoye and Oklafarmama? Or is it Texas that had hers and not Oklafarm? I am misremembering. And I know I am forgetting some mamas that post a lot, right? There can't only be three of us left???

I will probably be around then too, depending on how stringent they are about inducing at exactly 41 weeks. I'll be 41 weeks on Sunday, 1/18.

Congratulations red hot mama and greenmama! What wonderful news. I was wondering how your labor went, redhotmama. I am glad Marshall is getting better and hope he is home soon!!

Writer mama, I hope you get your wish and baby arrives this Monday (or sooner)!

Looking forward to seeing more birth announcements here soon.

Oh my goodness I've missed a lot of activity. Congrats to all of the new babies that have arrived! I absolutely love the pics and hope you are all having some great newborn cuddles.

I'm still waiting (39 weeks on Monday). Though I'm feeling this little guy will come before his due date, so in the next week or two. Hope you are all having a great day!

Me (30) and DH (30), DS (7/1/08), DD (12/1/11) and expecting a new little boy end of January 2015!

Congratulations red hot mama and greenmama!!! I am 40+ 6 today. My 2 older kids were up puking all Tuesday night so I got very little sleep. Kept them both home yesterday and we all drove into the city to the chiropractor, got some lunch and rented movies Everyone slept through the night last night- Thank goodness! Then today I woke up and finally had some bloody show which gave me some hope! Having some sporadic contractions today, doing some laundry, vaccummed and have been cuddling with my youngest Going to take a nap and reserve my energy in case this baby decides to make his entrance tonight! Though my oldest has his first baskestball game this evening so hoping I can make it to that! But feeling SO ready!!!

Congratulations to all of you!

Who hasn't had their baby yet?
This January DDC feels more like an EARLY January DDC.

I am still waiting, crossing my fingers for baby to choose to come before Monday. Otherwise they will induce me.

6 Autumn was like "what is that?!?" but the others took it in stride, pretty used to it.

George Charles was born at 12:04 am on 1/17/15, weighing 8 lb 13 oz.

Here's a mini labor and birth story for you all:

On Friday 1/16, I woke up at 4:30 am from what I think was my water breaking since there was a little bit of wetness and mucus on my pants. I started getting light contractions and losing a little pink tinges mucus. When my husband woke up at 7:30, I said not to go to work today because things were starting up. Contractions stayed rather light all morning, so much so that he wasn't sure labor was starting, but I knew it was. He spent the morning getting things ready around the house and tending to our other two kids, and frankly, he was kind of flying around the house all antsy! Our in-laws picked up the kids mid-afternoon, and since contractions were 7 minutes apart, hubby thought I should call the hospital midwife and let her know what was happening. The thing is, although the contractions were all 7 mins apart, some of them were lighter, and I was completely normal between them, so the midwife suggested we stay home until things got stronger. So I sat in my soft rocking recliner, and hubby sat on the bed, and we chatted, ate, and had a good time for several hours! If I stayed sitting, contractions were more mild, but if I stood up, they got more intense. Around 9 pm, after several more intense contractions while standing, we both agreed it was time to head to the hospital (45 minutes away). Once in the car, however, contractions lessened in intensity (though still 4-5 mins apart) and he said later that he was really worried we had left too soon. Even though they were not as strong in the car, I was still kind of more zoned out, so I knew baby would be coming soon. Once we got to the hospital around 10 pm, they did the 20 minute monitoring, which because the monitor on the baby sometimes cut out, they decided to re-do (ugh!). As that was finishing up, contractions started to get more intense and 2-3 mins apart. The nurse was great though, and I would squeeze her hand while the midwife pushed on my back and my husband rubbed my foot. All three things really helped get through the contractions! I was still sitting in a chair for all of this because it made it all so much more manageable. My body started the pushing phase, so we discussed where I could remain upright and they raised the back of the bed so I could kneel on it while leaning over the back. I mustered up the courage to move there, and baby came out a few minutes later. Pushing was really intense, as it has always been for me, and sadly baby's head made it only half-way out with the first pushing contraction. So, painful as it was, I think I pushed the rest of the head out on my own because I just couldn't stand it much longer. The shoulders and body came next and they placed the baby on the bed below me and told me to pick him up! The other weird thing baby kept doing in labor was pushing around in my while I was having a contraction, which let me tell you, was no fun! I think he just really wanted to get out.

I had a rather easy recovery, and we are doing great with breastfeeding! I forgot how difficult the first few days are with feeding, and it's good to have made it through that.

I hope everyone else is doing well, and those of you still waiting soon have little babes in your arms too!

Congrats Greenmama!

OK pregnancy brain. I meant to congratulate musicmama08 - but now I see I technically didn't congratulate Greenmama yet, just said welcome to her baby. So I congratulate both of you! So exciting to see everyone having their babies!

Yay musicmamma! That sounds like a quik birth. If doesn
G even sound like many pushes till your son was out. I thought it was interesting they placed your son on the bed and you just picked him up. I bet breast-feeding is still going well for you guys. I hope. I am nursing now as per usual. Interesting birth position.

My baby Gwennel Walden surprised me today and arrived on 1/23/15 at 3:46am. I can't wait share the details but I am starving and need to eat...again! so here's the highlights: she is perfect in every way, 8lb8oz, 19 inches, and auburn hair! She was born in the caul, which was a fascinating feeling for sure, and I read that only 1 in 800,000 babies are, so that is a cool fact. I will write up a birth story soon. I am totally wiped after no sleep for 48 hours.
