ok, so i'm only due today but i so want this baby out. i don't even feel that bad which is either good or bad. i'm just so ready.
Poor thing! I've got 7 1/2 weeks left and must have really popped out over the past week b/c all I've heard is "When is that baby due?" If I have to listen to that for the next 7 weeks. . . . . LOL
Is this your first baby?
no it's my second. my first was early by a week which makes the waiting even worse. I know how you feel about the asking. I'm a dental hygienist and my last month was a lot of talk about the baby which frankly gets old. it's nice that i have this week off anyway. just sleepy me and a VERY active 4 year old little girl. she doesn't give me much time off. I do need to sit back and take in these last days or hours of just her and me though. she is such a good little girl.
Yeah, with my first I was 2 weeks early and my 2nd was born on his due date. I'm thinking, if this pattern continues, am I going to go 2 weeks late?? AAAGGHHH!! The being tired all the time phase has just hit me again, too, and with an almost 5 and 2 year old, I think I'm a little too cranky with them sometimes!
It's very understandable. I am 12 days away, doctor appointment tomorrow, and I am so ready. I might not being singing the same tune once I am actually in labor, but I hate not knowing. I wish they due date was exact, that way you know. Everytime my back starts to feel crampy, or my belly does, I am like..Is this it? Are these contractions? --I'm never right..I think when it actually does happen I won't know it. Ahh, womanhood.
I agree, jenn! As if we don't have enough to deal with. Why do we get stuck with everything physical to worry about? Men have it so easy. They only thing they get is the worry of trying to figure us out! LOL Of course, if they could, it would make things easier for us, huh? You'll both go soon, I'm sure!
one day past due and still no change. is it weird that i want to feel crampy and miserable just so i know the end is near?? i did spend pretty much the whole day with my daughter though. it was really nice and i think she really enjoyed it. so i keep thinking--i spent a wonderful day with her alone so NOW the baby can come--RIGHT?? I was 50% effaced and 2-3 cm. dialated on Monday and the baby has definately dropped. so any minute now. i think part of my problem is that i'm ready this time. with my first i didn't even have a bag packed, my house was a pigsty, and i worked until the day before. this time i have time off, my house is clean (including windows!!), and I have the bag packed. maybe i jinxed myself??? should i have my daughter unpack my bag and hide stuff so i have to look for it last minute LOL!!!
Been there! My first was five days late. We threatened to induce him and finally he decided to come out on his own (90% effaced, 2-3 cm, as low as he could go, and 3 attempts at stripping my membranes!). It is amazing how crazy "that date" can make you when you're finally there, even when you know that late is always a possibility! I hope you go soon- probably when you least expect it. In the meantime, enjoy your daugher and try to keep yourself occupied so you don't go too crazy! Wishing you a smooth labor and a healthy baby... (soon!)
OK. four days past and i really don't feel any differently. i know the baby is super low. in fact, i don't know if it can get any lower. the other night i thought real labor was starting. i started with really bad cramping at about 2:30 in the morning. the contractions or braxton hicks didn't hurt but the cramps really didn't let up for 1 1/2 hours. and then that was it. we have a wedding to go tonight. what do you think girls? if i wear heals and dance the baby will fall out!!!?? LOL. i figure just the fact that i want to go somewhere will jinx me into having it!!!!
So, did the dancing work? If we don't hear from you, I'll assume that's good news! Hope your baby gets here soon. . . .
