Shannon - October 23

At request, I decided to start a new one. Hope you don't mind. :-) Somehow i doubt it'll get as long since everyone's about to burst!

 

Shannon - October 23

Anyway, i might as well post something. According to the time here, (EST), i have 2 minutes until i'm offically overdue. I'm really disappointed, too. I've been doing this countdown to today forever, all for nothing it seems. I feel intense pressure tonight and some bh, but that's all. I guess i'll just hope to go into labor before my appt tomorrow, cuz i'm sure they'll tell me once again how much of a whale I am (not in so many words but you know what I mean). hmmm, i just noticed that I goofed up the t_tle of the thread a tad. oh well. anyway, i guess i've officially joined the overdue club, now i'll just have to hope that i don't end up being a Nov. Mom.

hey shannon i wouldnt bank on this not getting long! i fel like ive got nothing left to do, i dont want to talk to anyone or see anyone, luckily dh finished work yesterday, so he can rub my back, ive been up all night with bad bh cramps diorreha and vommiting but the contractions have died, whats wrong with me? I have to wait till 3.40 tommorow for a sweep, im going insane, jb your so lucky, the rest of us will suffer on in the name of the october countdown, which better not turn into the nov countdown, otherwse i shall start thinking of doing my own csec in the kitchen at home!!!! i feel so ratty i dont even want to talk to my mum, people keep texting me and leaving messages on the answer phone and i ignore them, i feel like im going to have depresssion before the post natal depression can get a chance. I had s_x last night, first time in ages, and was a lie back and think of england job! ate a whole pinnaple yesterday, which has made my mouth well sore, so this morning i got clever and liquidised a whole pinnaple with a little milk and strawberry ice cream drank it through a straw, im still taking blue cosh tablets as reccomended by my midwife although not entirely sure about them but im that desparate now, i think ill go by more castor oil (after saying never again a week ago) i feel (like i know you girls do too) like im living in limbo, nothing to do, c___p weather, tiard, iritable and no baby. i want to cry and scream at the same time

I'm 1 day over now and still no signs of labour. I am fed up of everyone asking if i've had the baby. The only person that hasn't been asking is my mum, and she only knows cos she is the babysitter of my other 2 when the time comes. I've not had much sleep. I think it's the excitment more than anything though. I'm still finding it hard to move my legs on a morning without the use of a hot water bottle. I was in the bath last night and my son said to me "mam you going to have your baby on Tuesday" I have no idea where he got that from but I hope it's true!! He is only 4, knows I am having a baby but thats about it. Bless him.

Good morning ladies, still here, no baby just hormones!! I saw my doc yesterday and as usual it was an uneventful appointment, although he did say that if I make it to next week (Sunday) he'll actually finally do an internal and he'll strip my membranes...I should have been happy I suppose, but too little too late, I'm at the end of my nerves...Good luck today JB and I can't believe what that lady told you, I'm not sure how I would have handled it but probably not very well at this stage. Hope to hear from you on Wednesday with a wonderful birth story :) If my memory doesn't fail me, Tonia and Tammy got induced this weekend right? Hope they're doing well. Who else was supposed to go, by the time I read all the posts my brain can't retain all the info on everybody. The thought of starting a "November Post" is really freaky, I hope we all go before that, especially that I've grown comfortable to rant to all you ladies, not sure I can face the original November Mommies! Walked again last night and got nothing but pelvic pains and bhs...

 

Mary - 4ish days to go - October 24

It is now almost 8 am, I am going to my prenantal now and it is possible that the doc will strip my membranes. I am not even sure what that is, and if it even works (all I heard about it is that it hurts and I really never heard of it working for anyone). I had a doggie night, more vomiting and diarrhea. However I feel like a fresh lettuce this morning, go figure! That is because I had some pretty good hours of sleep after all that bodily "evacuation". I wil write when I come back! Thank you for being around and soon enough we will be threading on the new born forum!

 

lisa - October 24

dont worry we will start our own mini nov forum if it ever gets to that, plus we will be way to ratty at that point to join the normal nov group!!!! ive just been out walking round town, some shop guy said you dont look like youve got long to go, i said i was due two days ago, he said oh dont make a mess on the floor, and told me i looked low, i wish i could have cleaned his floor with amniotic fluid! getting stabbing cervix pains while i walk, which i strangly enjoy, ive grown to love pain as i know it means business (see told you im loosing it) hoping my cramps get more, and gutted that the only shop that sold castor oil in town have stopped stocking it and sold out, and last week i threw out a half bottle, cos it gave me diorreha, now i want it back. good luck with your membrane strip mary, i get one tommorow, dont care if it hurts, they put their finger/fingers inside you and inside your cervix and gently rn their fingers round the rim of the bag of waters to separate the membranes, this releases hormones which starts labour (can) good luck

 

Mary - October 24

I am back! The doctor told me I am doing great and decided not to strip membranes at all until my next appt on NOV 1!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I have lost 5 lbs this week due to my evacuation issues but the doctor is not worried either. This sucks! I am about 1 and 1/2 cm dialated and about 65% effaced still, pretty much no change in almost a month. The baby is growing ands so is my belly. My doctor said he really prefer the baby to arrive naturally because the rate of c-section increases significantly with an induction. :( :( I am a big girl with child bearing hips and I was made to deliver naturally, so I guess the doc has a point, let nature take its course! :) I am off to have some decaf coffee now and some toast. later girls!

 

Jl - October 24

Hey girls. I go to the doctor in about an hour and we are going to set my induction date. I still can't believe I was on bed rest for 2 months because of pre-term labor and now I'm overdue almost a week. Haven't seen a post from Tonia, wonder if she went over the weekend??

 

Shannon - October 24

hi, girls. i'm still here and still overdue. >:-( ok, this is gonna be waaaaaaaay TMI but i really wanna know what you think. my husband and i had s_x early this morning. of course, afterward i laid there for a while to get maximum prostoglandin effect, but then i felt an uncomfy twinge and was afraid of making a mess all over our new bedsheets so i got up and went pee and wiped myself off. then i felt fine for an hour or so, pretty clean and dry down there. then i went pee, the tiny bit i could, and noticed on my toilet paper some foggy slime, like snot when u have a cold but not yellowish. ok, now do you think this is just some leftovers from s_x or could it possibly be my mucus plug, which i hadn't lost yet? i was so excited for a minute. i took a shower after i got the slime, so maybe i should just wait and see if anymore comes out. sorry for the tmi, i just got so excited for a minute. i just want SOMETHING to happen, ya know.

 

Mary - October 24

Shannon, of course I understand the excitment. I cannot tell you what it is as I have not lost mine yet either. Keep us posted. I wish there was something we could do all of us, I mean something where we could direct our energies and wishes to make something happen as a group. I am slowly convicing myself I am having a November baby. I am giving up on waiting until next week, I have decided to do so starting right now!

 

lisa - October 24

shannon, what i can tell you is that i lost a plug type thing fri night (hadnt had s_x in ages) so wasnt sperm, it was like egg whites, slightly yellow in parts, i used to get it every month before pregnant (fertile jelly/mucus) it was pretty similar to that but a bit runnyer, anyway, some women loose this weeks before birth so i would be getting excited if it was blood tinged as that means business, but ive given up hope with all these signs, ive just made up a cup of brown sugar waiting for it to get cold, saw it somewhere on this site, i tried it like 2 weeks ago but figred now im over due everything has a better chance, i guess its like a laxative... see you all later

 

Shannon - October 24

not long after i posted my last um post i discovered a tiny bit more slime, which made me get excited again. still not gonna say for sure that it was my plug, and even if it was it doesn't necessarily mean the baby's coming like today or anything, I know. i have a Dr appointment in like an hour (my 40 weeker), hopefully i'll have some good news to share with you guys. :-)

 

Jl - October 24

Hey girls, just got back from the doctor...I am going into the hospital tonight at 9pm. They will administer cervidil at 10pm and 2am and start pitocin at 5am tomorrow!!! Can you believe it? FINALLY!! I find that my excitement is overshadowed by nerves now. Hopefully I will have my baby sometime tomorrow afternoon! I will post my story (it's so cool to know I'm finally going to have a story) when I get back! Good luck to all the rest of you too. Please pray that my delivery goes well, that the baby and I both do fine. Thanks for everything!

 

Mary to Jl - October 24

Good Luck and please, please keep us posted on how things go. I wish you a quick delivery a nice healthy baby and much, much happiness! :)

 

Jl - October 24

Thanks Mary! I will let you all know as soon as I get home.
