Hmmm....well, I am thinking January 11th might be a good day to have a baby. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up"><br><br>
I am leaking a tiny bit of fluid and have been having sporadic, but strong contractions all night. Caught about 3 hours of sleep, before a storm woke up my little ones and sent them crawling into my bed.<br><br>
I am going to hang here at the house until things progress a bit further. I do have a midwife, though we like to call her a medwife. She is an OB in everything but name and will put me on the clock if I go to the hospital early.<br><br>
So, just sitting here, maybe in labor, munching some granola.<br><br>
How about you?

DH and I DTD last night with some EPO then I stayed in bed for about 30 mins. Then came downstairs and watched the rest of Rome <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> I love that show..then when I went to bed I put in another EPO .....I definitely felt something in the middle of the night with my cervix ..<br><br>

Good morning ladies <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
Yesterday my mom had my other two all day and after dh came home we did the deed and then I made a reservation to a fancy restaurant for us. I mean if anything would get this little guy to come it would be that right??? uh nope. I did have nice contractions at dinner, but they died out before desert came. I remember stating to people that I thought this guy would come on the 15th I wanted to be proven wrong so bad.

Hope all of you are feeling okay this morning. I'm about to make a pancake breakfast for my husband (and kids), who generously offered to stay home this morning if I make breakfast. Fair trade I guess.<br><br>
Anyway, real quick, Ricki Lake is supposed to be on another news station today. Did anyone here that? If so, which one?<br><br>
Thanks, I'll be back.<br><br>
Happy Labor Vibes to ALL of US....whether were close, or not!

Good morning all! Here I am, 40+1. This is the day that both of my older ones were born but there are no signs that full-blown labor is coming today. I have had it in my head that this baby would take longer anyway but it sure is hard now that it's here!! I still feel really good but hate to be wasting DH's open days (we own a small business and don't have anything scheduled through Monday) with no baby!! My parents and other sister get here late tonight. It will be nice to send all the kids to their rental house!! I was really hoping (and they were too) for the baby to be here by the time they got here. I think that I will be hibernating in my house until the baby comes. They can come and bring me food!! Anyway, that's about all that's gooing on here. My house is clean and organized and ready to go. All we need is a baby!!<br>
Welcome Suzylou!!<br>

40+1 here, lots of strong braxtons all day yesterday, but nothing else. I am however sick<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/irked.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="irked">: My ears are full, my head is stuffy, and I have the chills. As much as I want to go into labour, not feeling like this. I am taking my Vit C, Oil of oregano, Prenatal... I am also getting more reflexology done on my feet tonight, maybe tomorrow?

40 weeks TODAY!! When I got pg, I truly never thought I would make it all the way to me DUE DATE!!! And while I agree that today would be a fantastic day to have a baby, I doubt I'll be that lucky. I am SICK this morning...I'm not sure if it's the flu or what, but in addition to my multiple trips to the potty I am very nauseous like I might vomit too. How crappy to get a bug so close to delivery! I suppose I will just sleep all day. I would let myself think it was delivery related, but baby is still in my ribcage, so I really doubt it. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/sick.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="sick"><br><br>
Good luck to you ladies who are fortunate to be making progress...you'll be in my thoughts today!!

OF COURSE my contractions would get stronger when I pull my groin muscle!! Why not?! Still hurts to walk, but I have figured out how to lean forward so it doesn't hurt as bad! I have been getting contractions during the night but they have been going away sometime in early morning while I am asleep. Well, starting last night and this morning I have been having liquidy poop (TMI I know...) AND my boobs were leaking colustrum last night in my bath and I don't leak until after baby is born, AND when I got up this morning my mouth was all dry and I'm starving. I took a drink of water that was beside the bed, and my contractions started up again. So we'll see. Everything is pointing to this baby coming today! Maybe me getting hurt was a sign to baby that he/she needs to come out so I don't get hurt anymore?! LOL...

Super big <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/hug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="hug"> Poolside. You have been sooooo waiting for this baby to come! I hope it's soon.<br><br>
I hope it's soon for all of us who want them here already. And those who need to hold off a bit for Mama, bake some more!<br><br>
I too am feeling frustrated because we're all just WAITING for this baby to come. I feel like I have no control and everyone's looking at me expectantly. Do you feel anything? How are you today? Etc. Argh. I have been losing my mucous plug for like four days now. Variable BHs. EPO orally and vaginally. A bit of DTD. Loose stools for more than a week now (TMI sorry). Emotionally labile. Alternating exhausted and hungry with nesting. 39w6d today. COME ON BABY!!!!!!!!!

I agree - Jan 11 would be a good day to have a baby...I have a fil who has a hard time remembering birthdays, so 1/11 would be a very easy date to remember. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br>
Had a tough night last night - ds was up for a bit in the early morning, then I couldn't get back to sleep because my hips were super sore and I had aches going into my back. I had a fleeting thought that maybe contractions were starting, but then I guess I fell asleep again. This morning, nothing.<br><br>
So I'm 41+1 today. My mil is coming over this morning to play with the kids, so I'm going to score some couch time and maybe even take a nap.
