I'm still here - just hit 37 weeks this weekend so I am full term! I go to the doctor tomorrow but so far no dilation and the baby's head is at +2 station - doesn't sound like much progress yet for me. I suppose I should really think about making sure the house is all ready for her and pack my hospital bag! LOL
I am just wait for my scheduled c-section on June 1st. My baby is breech and not ready. I can not wait. :)
I have been having what i thought were severe gas pains for the past 2 days, buckled over in pain...so i went to l&d last night, they said i wasn't having any contractions, my cervix was dilated to 1/2-1. I had a dr. appt. today, she said i was 70% effaced and 2 cm dilated and that the baby's head was VERY low. =D turns out those were contractions. and my mom thinks were going to have a baby by this weekend judging by the rest of the women in my family. we will see. =] I'm 37 weeks 2days and so excited!!
Angela- I am in the same boat started getting my hospital bag done but not finished with it and I need to still finish buying and getting things as set up as I can for baby Micah. We are in transition from apartments and living with the in laws until we can find a place. So I want him here now but at the same time I want him to stay put so we can get things done.
Jhanee- I can't wait to see everyones babies as well as mine!
Rhi315- you are so lucky as far as I know the contractions I have been having aren't doing anything but I guess I will find out today for sure. I hope they are doing something.
well, like I said, mine had me literally bent over in pain, I couldn't get up/walk to the bathroom/pull up my own pants. I couldn't eat either. I really just thought it was awful awful gas pains. Early labor sure does hurt a lot more than i had anticipated LOL.
Remember all the things you have learned and I will be praying for your pain to lessen. I have been the Lamaze coach many times and I always tell the mommy breath and focus. It helps. Good Luck I can not wait to see the pics.
Thank you so much! I have not yet taken a class!! I was scheduled for one on June 4th, but I don't see that happening. yikes...I'm hoping I can handle the pain on my own.
I'm 38wks today. During my last obgyn appt my doctor said that I was 1 1/2 cm dilated, 60% efaced and at -3 station. I have another appointment this upcoming Wednesday and I can't wait to see what he says.
My bag has been packed since my 35th week so I'm good there and we installed the car seat today. I am so ready to have her but at the same time I am also a little afraid. It's weird but I know one thing...I AM SO TIRED OF BEING PREGNANT. :-).
I hope we will all keep each other posted.
I went to my dr's appt today (37wks) and my dr said I am 1 cm and 75% effaced but he did not seem hopeful or concerned. He just said I could go at anytime. The contractions have been getting stronger and more frequent these past few days so I am hoping its soon. I am schedule for a planned c-section June 6th but I am ready anytime!! Good luck to you ladies! Can't wait to post and see pics on here!
At least your having contractions. I orginally had a c-section scheduled for June 1st due my baby being in the breech position. She turned last week so my c-section was cancelled. During my last appointment my dr said that he didn't feel that I would make it to 40 wks but I have yet to have any contractions.
I guess I'll just have to wait for my little princess until she decides she's ready to come. :-)
It's bittersweet because I have had contractions since I was 5 mnts along. I'm tired of them. I just wanna be able to crawl outta bed without getting one and not have to pray everytime I get up in the middle of the night that I am gonna make it to the toilet LOL!!
Kara I am sure she will be here soon ig the contractions are getting stronger, hope it is this week for you.
Well ladies I had my appointment today and the doctor said no change (2cm 50%) and I don't think he has dropped still but I have come to terms that I will most likely go to my inducement day which is offically set for JUNE 5TH!!!
No baby yet, Im 37 weeks on Friday, c-section scheduled for the 13th June, contractions all the time - could not walk last night, but we still here!!
37 weeks in a couple of days and getting painful baton hicks. My midwife says normally they are not painful. Guess I am just unlucky. Don't know how I am going to last another 4 weeks. My cervix is still closed, but bubs head is engaged, so no breech birth for me. Will keep everyone posted.
Just got back from the doctor - does anyone else find it ridiculous that we STILL have to pee in a cup when we can't even see where the pee is coming from anymore??
Anyways, apparently I might be 2cm and was last week, too. I thought she had said my cervix was still closed and that the head was at a 2 station last week, but this time, I asked more clearly I guess and she said that she wrote down a 2 last week, too. Maybe she was talking station both times, IDK. She's a sweet lady, but she talks kind of fast and confuses me - all I know is that baby is still in there and I am ready for her to come out! LOL She also said I'm more thinned out - not sure exactly the percent effaced, but more than last week is better, I guess. :-)
lol I peed on my hand trying to pee in the cup 2 weeks ago! I got better at it this week.
My due date is next friday!! I cant believe it. I have my doctors appointment tomorrow and im def getting checked I have been walking like a mad woman hahaha so I hope there is some progress :)
Omg about peeing in the cup, wow I totally know how you feel!! oh & i too went all over my hand and down my leg it was a mess and ugh
But im soo excited I cant wait!!! :)
The last two weeks I have peed on my hand - so annoying...I only have 2 more appointments before my official due date - I hope those are the only 2 more times I have to pee in a darn cup - can't they get us a big funnel or something to use? LOL
YAY!! Angela!! Your so close!!! and Rhi315 is going to go anytime now! Im so excited!!
I go in to pee in my cup and make a mess in a couple min, cant wait to hear those dooming words, "cervix closed" you will be pregnant til the end of time.
Tasia32 - I think you will go earlier!
Jhanee - Im so jealous that you know when your baby is going to be here!! :)
I had my appointment yesterday and I am 2cm dilated and 75% efaced. Monday night I had diarreha, then had contrations for about 45 mins then they stopped. What a bummer becasue I thought I going into labor.My dr said he did not know why the contractions stopped but that I seem to be progressing, On Tuesday I'll be 39 weeks so my induction is shecduled for then.
I wish my labor would just start tonight. Oh well at least there is a light at the end my tunnel. Good luck everyone. :-)
Tjimenez10 - thats so exciting!!!
Well im 1/2 centimeter dialated and told me he can feel his head and he is lower then last time, told me I would have him within the next week and a half ( basically my due date duh! ) and he is guessing he will weigh 7 1/2 lbs!!
I have had diarrhea since saturday morning, and contractions on and off since then. I'm actually having them now. They will start for a few hrs. and usually stop around 9 am. It is sooo annoying -______- I ate pineapple today, and I bought Red Raspberry Leaf pills...my friend swears these put her into labor, and that her dr. rec. them. I am kind of chickening out on them though, because I'm really nervous about labor. lol. =( They call the stage that I'm in Prodromal Labor.
Wow you ladies sound like you'll be having babies soon!!!
