Well, technically I'm August 15th...but the OB that oversees my midwife says that she doesn't want me to go past the 7th due to the size of my son when he was born and how big this little boy is measuring right now. (5 lbs 8 oz at 32 weeks...) This gestational diabetes stuff is a pain in my butt.
I'm due August 4th. I'm not sure if I'll make it but if I do I'm going to ask for an induction at 39 weeks if all is ripe and ready (I'm already 3cm dilated at 34 weeks).
My second son died shortly after his birth last August and I don't think emotionally I can wait or go past my due date. I do know that I do not want a pitocin induction. My doc has agreed to try cervadil. I've read a lot on it and many say it can start labor and others say it doesn't. If doesn't work we'll just come home (again no pitocin and no AROM). I may not have much choice to wait until this little one is ready if the cervadil doesn't work but I'm going to give it a shot.
I also figure closer to 39 weeks I'll try some natural methods. I'm not interested in castor oil but I'm going to try acupuncture for sure.
So, I float between the July and August DDC. Can't wait for all of us to meet our little ones!
AUgust 2nd!!!! DH FIRMLY believes little man will come on the 23rd of July, however. He's adamant about it. Says he had a "dream..premonition" and swears by it. I find it hard to believe, considering he's a boy (and they stay in as long as possible, it seems), and he's my first. He's measuring about 10 days ahead, and that would be 10 days early.. Either way, it's very soon!
I rearranged and reorganized his room last night, and it made me feel good. Putting the final touches on everything, and really trying to prepare myself.
This is such an exciting, uncomfortable (BOY is it uncomfortable), and happy time!!!! hahahaha
I'm due August 11th, but have a c-section already scheduled for August 7th. However, based on baby's growth (6 lbs 12 oz at 33 weeks), I may be giving birth sometime within those last two weeks of July. Not much time left!!
Amber- this is totally nuts, but we are due the same day and for some reason July 23rd sticks out to me too. Although I am trying to ignore it because my midwife will be in FL for my 39th week. This is so crazy!
I am due August 6th by the doc and august1st by my dates.They are sticking with theirs,I am sticking with mine
It will be interesting to see when this babe is born.I have had July 13th in my head since I peed on a stick!!!maybe that is just wishful thinking seeing as I am suffering from preggo witch syndrome this time.I swear as soon as the clock stricks 2pm I turn into a witch,never happened before!!my other were between 2 -3 weeks early but I wont count on that!! I am 2 -3 cm and at least 50% effaced though which makes me nervous as everytime I have reached 4cm the babe has been born within the hour
I'm due July 30th, but expecting to go late. I've been induced each time right around my due date, so I figure there is little chance of early or on time. I'm hoping that the full moon on August 6th does something for me.
I am due August 3rd or 12th depending on who you talk to.
I go by Aug 3rd since that's my conception due date and it's more accurate IMO, since this time I know when it happened.
I went two weeks early with the first and a week early with the second, so my prediction is anytime between July 23rd and end of July.
But....I am bigger this time and having an awful lot of contractions, pressure and pain that has stoped me in my tracks - so who knows!
Ironically my midwife is also going to be going away at the end of the month! How perturbing!
Good luck mommies! I'll bet some of us will share some dates.
My "due date" is Aug 31, I always hate when baby is expected at the end of the month. Makes it seem longer for some reason. I am usually a few days to a week early, but had one at 37 even and one at 38 6.
