I think we are getting to the point of needing this thread now! I wanna be able to keep an eye on everyone, LOL!<br><br>
So, be warned: If you don't post, I'll be setting the hounds on you! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/dog2.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Dog">:<br><br>
Or maybe this one instead: <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/hyena.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="hyena"><br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br>
So, here's me, checking in, and also being the first to break the "daily check-in" rule, because there's a good chance I won't be able to get back online before Sunday evening. We are having a weekend-long church meeting, starting today, and things are likely to be a little bit hectic.<br><br>
But I PROMISE that if I do actually go into labor, I'll drop everything else and post here! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"> So, otherwise, no news from me means "No News", at least until Monday! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love"><br><br>
xo to you all! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/luxlove.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="throb">

Hope your church weekend goes well Sarah, and you get that pantry stocking shopping trip done!<br><br>
Me? I'm still here. Still pregnant. Still very grouchy. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/shy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="innocent"> I am having "belly" photos made tomorrow, which should be motivation enough to stay pg at least until sometime after that, but I'd be just as happy to do newborn photos. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br>

I'm still here. Didn't sleep very well last night due to "waves of cramping" also known as killer BH. I don't expect any changes soon though. I'm 37 wks today! Yippee! (with dd, I never got to 37 wks. She was born at 36.5 so this is uncharted territory for me!)

I am still here, but I am only 36.6 weeks, so that is fine. I am actually still not *DONE* yet, I am still enjoying being pregnant, minus the PSD. Besides this is <i><span style="text-decoration:underline;">thee</span></i> easiest time to parent/care for a child.<br><br>
I am sure that closer to my EDD, I'll get more vocal about being *DONE*, but for now, I am fine <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"><br><br>
***Good Luck Sarah with your busy weekend!!!***

I'm only hitting 36 wks on Sunday, and I absolutely cannot have this baby til Dec. 8 or later (unless I want to be forced to go to the hospital) - so I hope to be checking in quite regularly for at least another week and a half <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink">

i know this thread will depress me. I will be 40 weeks on Monday. The more people that are due after me and have their babies before I do, the more I will look like this./ <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/gloomy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Gloomy">:<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"><br><br>
With that said though, I do not wish for all of you to have any delays i still wish the best and easiest labors to all of you.....whenever they may come.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink">

hi! i'm 40 weeks today, as both babyzone and my lilypie baby counter chirped at me this morning. i've been taking cohosh tinctures as prescribed by my midwife since monday, but i don't feel any different, other than the occasional contraction that might just be a strong braxton hicks.<br><br>
so, i'll probably be here another few days at least and i'm trying to make peace with that. trying being the operative word here.

Here and 37 weeks. Baby shower at work today, so have been talking baby stuff more than usual all morning... REALLY looking forward to baby arriving! It's my first, though, and they say those are more often late than early...

Still here-36 weeks and 4 days-but whose counting right? I'm fighting with my health insurance because for some weird reason they don't want to pay for my 20 week u/s.... They will pay!!!<br><br>
At noon today I get my results of my GBS test-keep your fingers crossed for me! I really don't want an IV in labor!!!<br><br>
Also today is my last day of seeing clients!!!!!!

I am still here. My MW's want me to go early I think, they seem to be hinting at it anyways. (Maybe so I dont miss out on my homebirth-if I go into labor between dec 9-20th, I am outta luck on the homebirth thing)<br><br>
I had some blood pressure weirdness the other day. For a day and a half I was dizzy and swollen and my BP went from the normal 100/60 to 138/74. It wasnt a huge deal but it was a big spike for me!<br><br>
I had it checked out and everything is fine now...so I iam taking some dandelion for it to make sure it doesnt cause problems.<br><br>
I am not quite ready but I hope I can be ready by the 3rd.<br><br>
dec 3rd i am having my house prof. cleaned. then i plan to chill out with a glass of wine and hopefully go into labor. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">

37 weeks and 1 day! Wow! Nothing major happening. Last night I had serious pain in my thigh joint - you know, where your leg meets your body? What's that about? I'm not ready to go yet! Way too much nesting to be done. Plus, I'm still feeling really good.<br><br>
Home with a sick, coughing, 4 year old today, who was on the floor next to me coughing ALL NIGHT LONG. I can NOT get sick! Ahhhhh!

I'm here! I am 37 weeks and like 2 days or something. I am SOOOO done. I want this baby OUT. I am in pain, can't sleep or get comfortable. Head is engaged, fully dropped down, can't walk, losing plug, cramps and contractions. I'm been having like every symptom for the past 5 days but she won't come out! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br>
I swear I'm going to be pregnant forever. I was having horrible cramps last night and BH when I was going to bed and am truly surprised I'm not holding a baby right now.
