Whoohoo!!! I hope this is really it Mich__le, Since you haven't been back on since last night, I'm assuming you ARE giving birth... Hey Beth, good luck to you too!! I know you are anxious, So am I. Ekay, I just have this feeling that you will have your baby before me and Beth.... Wow.. This is it girls, we just gotta play the waiting game... are you all packed for the hospital yet? I just got every thing that I think I need, basically an over night bag... Beth has your doctor given you an internal exam yet? Mines hasn't and I'm not even sure when they will....

 

Beth - August 18

Lucky, I cna't believe you would say you think Ekay will go before me? :0( haa haa. ok so its only because I am sssoooo impatient!! I am rolling/bouncing on my exercise ball and have been for about 3 hours now, I will continue for the rest of the work day, haa haa!! I have a dr apt tomorrow and I will be 38 1/2 weeks and will have my first pelvic done. .MAYBE (keep your fingers crossed) a little pelvic exam and the full moon will help bring it all on!! Hey what the hell tomorrow after the exam I will go home and have s_x too!! haa haa aa

Ha Ha anything to bring on labor right (lol) I feel you, once I hit the 37 week mark, I am going to start walking more than normal.... I've been having s_x... I am so anxious.....

 

Beth - August 18

See I am not walking allot now :0(, but at home I am constantly up doing dishes/laundrey/ cooking dinner/just standing around, so I am hoping that helps, shoot just bending up and down up and down getting piles of laundrey that should push her down, haa haa

 

ekay - August 18

Well, I hope I don't go before you Beth! I'm a little freaked out because I am only 36 weeks. Does anyone know how mature the lungs are at that point. I always heard 37 weeks was full term. Its weird though because before I even got checked, August 19th just popped into my head one night. I was like, August 19th, that's too early. But now that I am already dialated, it very well could be. I'm probably wrong. But anyways, once you get checked Beth, you are going to stop and wonder everytime you get a twinge of pain. That's how I am at least. Watch it be another 3 weeks for me! HA, I would be upset. You know another thing that's weird, is my appet_te has decreased significantly. And you guys know I that I will eat anything that crosses my path!

 

Beth - August 18

I think you are right, 37 weeks the lungs are supposed to be considered full term, but don't quote me on that!! No offense but I hope you don't go before me either!! I hope you are thinking Aug 19 for ME, haa haa.

 

ekay - August 19

Well, no baby here! But I did have a horrible nights sleep. I did not fall asleep until 3am, and that means not dozing off here and there, that mean I did not fall asleep until 3am. Guess I better get used to it. You know what I was thinking last night, we are back to the original 3 posters, at the very beginning. I do wish that Citrouille would hop on and let us know what the heck is going on. My body hurt so bad last night. My legs are about to do me in. You guys are SO lucky you don't have this sciatic nerve thing. Okay, well tonight is actually the full moon. Start jumping off some chairs Beth!

 

Beth - August 19

Good morning girls!! Sorry to hear you had a bad night last night Ekay. ..I to had a horrible night, could not sleep, and actually felt the stretching and pulling and tingling sensation right above my area last night. My mom called to ask how I was this morning and got all happy and told me that feeling was me efacing. ..I guess I will see at the dr's today!! Haa haa, I made my fiance have s_x last night, I am still not in the mood but I will do anything right about now, and he knows it so he was holdig out on me, he said no more s_x, ha haa, I still pursueded him though!! oh and the Siatic nerve thing. . .totally have it Ekay, I go to the chiropractor for it, he does wonders!! AND I heard that going to the chiropractor for and adjustment can help the baby drop, I think I might go today!!

 

Beth - August 19

NEW pictures. . .hopefully the LAST ones!! Keep your fingers crossed for me ALL day today!! http://frogluvr.piczo.com

 

Lucky1 - August 19

Hey chica, I'm back online/at work. Good luck at the appointment today, I hope that they tell you that you are effaced (SP)/ thinned out. I just called my Dr's office because I used my doppler this morning and my baby's h/b was in the 160's and it's usually between 148 and 152bpm. they told me not to worry but I'm still concerned. The nurse also told me that they will not check my cervix until I am 38 weeks, d__n!! I hope they tell me something good... Sorry to hear you didn't sleep well Ekay, that Sciatic nerve thing must be a pain in the a__s (literally.) Just think, you've only got a few more weeks to go (if that.) Are you both ready for the baby or do you have some other baby things you gotta get?

 

Beth - August 19

I am pretty much ready, I still need my fiance to put together her dresser that we got last weekend at Ikea, but since she will not be in that room for a onth or so anyways I am not pushing to hard on it. I do need to go buy my b___stpump though, I think that is what we are going to go do after my dr apt!! oohhh and we need batteries for every single thing we have for her!! haa haa, and you?

 

Lucky1 - August 19

Wow beth, your hair has grown so much.. Well, not to mention your belly... I am going to put some pics up in a little bit, I have to get my camera out of the car.... I just have to get the energy to go get the d__n camara (lol) Yes, I've gotten that lazy..

 

Lucky1 - August 19

I am completely ready, she will be sleeping in our room in the ba__sinette, but I still have the Nursery ready, completely ready... all we need is the baby... My mom bought me the Graco Metro Lite Travel system with the Georgie design, I really don't like it, so I was going to take it back but my husband seemed to think that I was being a little too picky and he feels that it is really not that serious, so we decided to keep it.

 

Lucky1 - August 19

I hate to keep posting Back to Back, but I just got a call back from my doctor's office and they want me to come in for a NST (immediately). So I'll be back... They are probably sick of me cause I call them for everything....

 

citrouille - August 19

hi girls! Oh my god I've missed so much in the past two weeks! I'm such an idiot, I totally forgot to tell you all that I was going on vacation! I was away at my husband's family house! I'm just reading up now to see how everyone is! Congrats to NM!!!! Jessica Renee is a gorgeous name. Sounds like you are doing really well.

 

citrouille - August 19

wow Michelle I hope you are having your baby right now! In any case I'm sending you warm thoughts and lots of courage! Ekay, sorry to hear about your sciatic nerve.. that is soo painful! I've had some back pain recently but it isn't my sciantic so it isn't so bad. Beth, I know you are impatient but don't worry I'm sure you will have your baby soon enough! As for me, at my last appointment just before vacation the baby had dropped. Its head is way down there but the doc said that doesn't mean i'll go early! At my u/s the baby weighed almost 5 pounds but that was already 2 weeks ago. I'm having trouble walking due to the fact that the baby's head is squashing everything down there. I feel like it is going to fall out! I can't remember who talked about feeling movement up high even though the baby had dropped, but I have the same thing. The baby still manages to kick me in the stomach and ribs. I think it's norma!..

 

citrouille - August 19

lucky, what is a NST? Hope everything is ok!
