We have had A LOT of birth announcements lately!!! YAY! I wonder who is left of us? I'm here, holding on my a thread...I'm only 1 or 2 cm dilated, 50% effaced, and -1 station. I have had surges (contractions) for the past 2 days ranging from 7-10 minutes apart, with breaks from time to time. My midwives think maybe this weekend, but its just a guess! I lost a bit of my mucous plug, but nothing else. How is everyone else?

I'm still here. I have no idea how much I've progressed since I haven't had any pelvic exams. I suspect that my baby is still baking and not ready to move since I haven't felt anything out of the ordinary. I am 38 weeks and 2 days.

I'm here! 36 weeks 3 days. I have told Ellen she can arrive anytime after next Tuesday, but I am hoping to get closer to 38 weeks. I have had a few bh contrax, but nothing regular. I seem to have more cm these days, and I can definitely feel a head in my pelvis at night, but that is about it. I am thinking another week or so at least.

Honestly, this is the October ddc and it's not even October yet, so despite some early birds, I think most of us are still here.

I'm here ~ 40 weeks on Monday and I'm going to be shocked if this baby shows up before Thanksgiving (that's Oct 8 here in Canada!). I've been losing my mucous plug since 37 weeks, taking EPO, drinking all sorts of teas (as prescribed by my m/w) and gettin' it on with DH as much as I can handle...but this baby does not want out...and I'm ok with that! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

I'm 37 wks today, and the child and I have an agreement; she will not come out until I am ready to have her. I have a cold right now, so that needs to be gone, plus I need to finish getting ready for her arrival. She's a biddable child...

I read the Thanksgiving part before the Oct 8 part (not realizing you were in Canada) and could only stop to think "omg if that is me I will kill myself!" (thinking you meant late November... lol<br><br>
My birthday is Oct 30th and I really really REALLY would like to have the baby born before then so that my parents will come visit and we can celebrate my bday (they are coming for the weekend once Victoria is born, and its my only time during the year - they come 3-4 times p/yr total - that I get to have any time alone w/ DH...and we're going to need it IMO since we'll be embarking on a long new baby/no sleep/no private time adventure again) Although when they came right after Brianna's birth and we went out, we went to see a very good movie but I slept through the whole thing. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br>
I know most wouldn't feel comfortable leaving their baby so soon, but my mom is the most wonderful wonderful wonderful person with my kids, to the point that none of them have ever felt uncomfortable with her, and DS and DD barely ever notice I've left because they're so busy being spoiled rotten by her

I was 36 weeks yesterday, and I was almost 42 weeks with dd. So if you tend to cook babies for a certain amount of time in general, I'll be here until November.<br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/irked.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="irked">: dd asked for that smiley(she really like that one for some reason), I'm fine with the November thing.

Still here. I have been consistently having contractions but nothing powerful yet. I feel like the baby is in my pelvis (I think that just happened today).<br><br>
No kids today, at grandmas, so dh and I want to take a nice long wak to get things going. I don't mind if baby cooks longer but the cramping, pain and contractions are getting to me.

I've still got about a month to go, most likely. I'll probably be one of the last of our DDC to meet baby!

Yes, I know...I was just hoping to see how those of us who are still pg are doing...it's good to see how others still in waiting are feeling sometimes, at least for me! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink">

i'm here but have been getting a lot crampier during the past 12 hours and i'm not certain my baby will have an october birthday. i had a bunch of sharp contractions very close together earlier then they got mild again i have been trying to sleep as much as possible and be as relaxed and laid back as possible so that if/when i go into labor i will have energy bu it is 3:30 am and i am up and wide awake. i dreamed i had a little girl and she was so beautiful.

36w4d here! no cervical checks so I have no idea if things are moving along down there or not, we'll assume they are though. in my head I'm going to deliver around 38 weeks, so that means I'll probably go to 42 <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">
