Hey guys! Sorry but I could barely get the last page to load so I had to make another. I just got back from my appt. They did the GBS test and I have to say that was the easiest test so far. haha No duckie, no needle just a Q-Tip. haha Well I go see him again next friday. So begins my weekly visits. I did ask him how ar he would let me go after my EDD and he said 41 weeks. OH and you know ow you always hear about Induction being worse then natural labor. They said it was'nt true. They said that the contractions are the same. There was a study done on it, and he said that both will measure at 80mm. I have no idea what that means either. haha They said the reason it seems like induction causes strongercontractions is because they start off regular and dont start irregular like they do with natural labor. I thought that was really interesting. OH and they also said when I asked f there was a way to manually guess how much the baby weighs that their is and they do that later on. Also they said that babies tend to follow the mothers birth weight. I was a 9 lb baby so they said she will prolly be about 8 lbs more or less. I guess we will see come D-Day. haha Anyways, I am getting no sleep what so ever at night. and that sleep I do manage is very restless. I am freakin tired and cant take a nap during the day because there is too much c___p to do. SOME ONE HOLD ME!!!!! hahaha. Umm lets see.. OH a friend of Shon's gavce u the cutest baby stuff frrom his daughter and also a full size swing and bouncer. I freakin love that swing. It swings side to side and it has like a princess canopy around it. It plays music and also has like.... I dont know what it is called. Its one of those things that spins around and has lights that project out in shapes and theseare dragon flies. It is the freakin cutest thing. The bouncer was a *&^%$ To put together. SERIOUSLY!!!! Good luck for those who get one from someone or those who dont have instructions. haha They are seriously a pain in the wazoo. Well Brianna is doing well. HB at 138, heads down and no idea if I am effaced or what not. My docto lef tin the middle of his meeting to come and see me and didnt have time to stay really. They made a mistake and scheduled me during his meeting cuz they are stupid. haha. So he was in a rush. OH andabout the baby stuff.... THEY GAVE US A BABY BIKINI!!!! haha it is too freakin cute. Anyways i'll shut up nw about me and go on to respond to people. BRENDA~ By now you are recovering and hopefully holding your LO. I cant wait to hear from you and to see pics and I hope everything went very smoothly. I want a detailed birth story woman! haha MEGAN~ glad to see you are doing good. Hopefully Brink will come soon enough. On a side note I am jealous of all those in front of me. haha Then aftershe is here i'll be jealou of those who still are waiting and still feel the LO's kicks fro the inside. haha JMEJO~ d__n that sucks. Well you can request to wait til the LO is ready to come out or ask for an u/s to prove the weight of the baby. Me persoally though... I wouldnt mind be induced only because I freakin suck at surprises and hate guessing. hahah I would like a definate time frame. My doctor though will only induce me if I go over my EDD. I am so sad. haha Well if she wants to bake a little longer its ok. What do you mean your cervix pokes out!? I have never heard this. haha I am getting nervous. STEPH~ haha make sure your man brings you a freakin gallon of ice cream and goes and gets you like 5 different types of pastas. haha SARAH~ YAY!! I am so glad you get to go early!!!! The 24th wow!!! You too I wanna detailed birth story. haha Wow that is crazy to think that the LO will be here so soon. So happy you will be meeting Kerrick soon. LESLEY~ I dont wanna V-Day baby either. I want that holiday for me and Shon. Can you imagine? You would never be able to have that romantic night again. Or well you may be able to but most likely not. BECCA~haha your poor mom! Can you imagine adding another month to the little bit we have left!? I hope your docto wot let you go that long! I will be 41 weeks at most so YAY!! haha ugh I have indigestion. RIFQAH~ Glad she is off of it. haha Tha really sucks. Brianna has only been in my ribs a handful of times and when she gets there... I wanna cry. haha So uncomfy. But you know I can only imagine how thy must feel. OH WOW and you know imagine if you were having a claustrophobic baby. haha The walls would really be closing in. Then having to go down the Birth Ca___l. haha Ok I better shut up because I have over written as it is. haha later guys!

 

jennifer_33106 - January 16

Hly cow I need to learn to shut my mouth. I talk way way way too much. Oh and I feel kinda bad for making this one but I always wait to see who will do it. haha then when my comp freezes trying to load the page I get all huffy and make a new one because my comp is dumb. haha

 

jmejo2 - January 16

I guess you can say it looks like it's about to fall out or something....With my first I noticed it in a random way. This time I just looked after I remembered that little fact. But it's weird...I try looking it up and the best I can come up with is that it falls under effecement may, like it get shorter or maybe the baby is low and it's pushing it closer to the v____al opening. I don't really know, was just wondering out of curiousity. I hope I don't end up having everyone doing a check now...LOL. I too would love to be induced maybe at 37 weeks-this not sleeping is killing me-I woke up this morning with this sense of not remembering anything from yesterday at all. I was driving to work and thinking did I lock up yesterday-I don't remember doing it. I had my boss tell me one day that I forgot to lock a door which has me major paranoid about double checking all the locks before I leave like 12 times. I think I should have taken leave a little sooner since so much responsibility befalls me at the end of the day and my brain feels completely fried. I put my last day as being Feb 15th but lets say that maybe I am right and my due date should be Feb 21st and she does decide to make her entrance sooner than her due date-she could be here as early as what like Feb 1st or somthing. I think it would suck to go into labor at work! OMG I really hope that doesn't happen

Hello ladies, I have been on in a while due to the fact that my online cla__ses have started back and it's already a pain to keep up with the discussion boards for cla__s alone, if you know what i mean. Tomorrow I will officially be 37 weeks, Full Term!!! Jmejo2~I can barely sleep myself. im having these dreams of being in labor and the closer i get to my due date the more i think about getting an epi. ive never had one but for some reason im getting scared and this is my third. my youngest is 7 and it seems so long ago since ive had to experience any type of pain as such. Wow Jen!! you wrote a book, haha I think you set a record, lol autograph please!! I heard induction is worse than natural labor too, and i can sort of see how someone would say that. natural is more ideal. i went natural both times and not to scare anyone but it was the worst pain ive ever felt but after that beautiful baby comes out you forget all about the pain. Man i can't wait to see my little girl. TTYL~mia

Ahh!! I keep missing these new posts because I really only pay attention to the Feb mommies and I rely on it by email, lol. Jen-You crack me up! I've always thought that baby bikinis are adorable. I'm awaiting to get Logan his first pair of swimming trunks, hehe. I'm glad to hear that inductions don't hurt anymore than regular birth... At least I KINDA know what to expect.. I must say, when people tell you that each pregnancy is different, that's NO lie.. This pregnancy has been a HELL of a lot different from my very first one.. This one has been hell.. The last one was hell, but it was also easy up until the end. I'm making sure that Derek brings me ice cream, cheesecake, all that fun stuff, lol. I will be starving for real food.. REALL food... Screw sandwiches!!!!! Jme-That would indeed suck to go into labor at work.. At my last job, I wasn't worried. One of the supervisors was a medical guy in the army, lol. Even though I wouldn't want my supervisor to see my cooch.. Having my doc see it is traumatizing enough for me. I don't know why I'm so weird about getting my checks and everything. At my GBS test, the doc basically had to use the freaking JAWS OF LIFE to get my legs open, LOL. TM-Yay for full term! Maybe you'll be the 4th to go?! Orrrr maybe Jme. WHO KNOWS.. We all could go at anytime now, lol.

 

Gemini_Girl - January 17

Hi all! Happy 37th week to me and mia :) I just soo wonder what the chances of going early are but Im going to start drinking rasperry tea, having lots of s_x and stimulation my nipples and whatever else....haha although im not that any of that stuff makes any difference im sure the baby will come when its ready! I am so uncomfortable and tired, like an old lady when I go out shopping im like sooo tired when i get back I need to fall asleep instantly for an hour or so! Probably when your induced the pain feels worse as your body doesnt really have time to prepare and the contractions are just like - Whoosh! Ive heard its better going into labour for the first time as you dont know what to expect and thats better than knowing!

 

BeccaBaby1 - January 17

Hi friends. I'm feeling good and I had a good appt today - nothing to report except that I'm doing well and measuring a week ahead at 38 weeks. We discussed the birthing plan and protocol for when to go to the hospital. That was wild because it is very clear that this is happening soon. Yeah, I was a super late baby but I only weighed a little over 7 lbs and my mom's doc said I easily could have cooked for another week (she was induced). My mom swears her dates could not have been off so I am a true 10 month-er. I asked my doc how long she'd let me go and she said just 41 weeks - that would give me a V day baby. That makes me a little anxious though, because I don't want to force my kiddo out if he/she isn't ready. I'll just cross that bridge later if I have to. Jen - yea for cute baby stuff! Jme - strange cervix situation... I know mine is still about a mile up inside so I don't know. Sarah - I want to take a nap too every day all day long. Sleeping in the day seems to work better for me than at night. Too bad. Ahh... I wanted to respond to the other posts but my preggy brain can't remember all the way back to 5 minutes ago when I was reading the other post. Never mind. I've got to go try and sleep now it's so late. ~B

 

tmjulien - January 17

Is anyone experiencing a hardening sensation right under the ribs? Not just during a braxton hix but like allday long. My uterus seems to be hard as a rock at all times now and it so freakin uncomfortable. Feels like my lo is surrounded by a brick wall!!! And i can even tell it's getting very large and round right under my b___st, ouch!!!! So So uncomfy.~mia

 

tmjulien - January 17

yay!!! we all are so so close!!! Becca, Gemini, wouldn't it be something if we all delivered on the same day!!!

 

jmejo2 - January 17

Mia~I have been thinking about not getting the epi again too...sounds crazy but they gave me some kinda pain med through IV when I was in with kidney stones, I can't remember what they called it but I may get that just to take the "edge" off if its safe during labor. My doc always joked with me that no pain meds would ever be effective with me cause he thought my body natural produced its own form of morphine when I was in pain-I have such a high tolerance for it and when I do feel it, it seems no pain meds really work. Everyone~ since I am relatively new...feel me in on who is set to go first, second, third, etc....I am worried now that I may go before term(I at least want to make it til then) but yesterday about twice every hour I was havin' real contractions-know those by the menstral feeling with my tightening belly. The fact that I can see my cervix in the mirror prompted me to look(also the feeling that I ripped between my v____a a b___t) and not only can I see it but it's clearly starting to open. I may call my doctor today and see if I can go to L&D and let a real professional look. My stepdad was an EMT and had all these nice text books when he had cla__ses that showed vividly pics of all situations so I am sure something is up, but as far as a timeline or whether it's normal to happen now, I am not sure. If I Can at least make it to the week of the 27th, I will be going into my 37th week, so hopefully. I just have to pay more attention which may be hard to do at work. THis pg is definately hell on me. I was so exhausted I fell asleep at 930 then woke up at 1130 fell back asleep woke up at 1:40 fell back asleep woke up at 3 then 4 then 5. This is rough!

 

Gemini_Girl - January 17

Hiya, yeh it would be funny if some of us delivered the same day :) haha! Mia maybe its a bum (or b___t as you would probably call it) right under your ribs or a foot? Jme, yeh you should go to the doc and get them to look at you, gosh wouldnt it be great if your partner was a doc/midwife, Id have them checking me out all the time hehe like I say we dont even get routine internals here so it really is just a waiting game!

 

jmejo2 - January 17

Just got back from doc.....she says bladder has prolapsed and thats what I see. No dialation yet but am effacing. Said that contractions like that are normal and everything is fine so far. Thankfully, I was so worried I was gonna end up delivering her this weekend or something crazy like that!

jennifer_33106 - January 17

Good Afternoon guys. I was so upset yesterday. haha Our Dog Halley decided that while I was out shopping that she would destroy the evil computer mouse. I guess it looked at her wrong or something but she tore it to pieces. haha OH and yesterday when Shon came home I went to hug and kiss him and Brianna kicked him right in the stomache hard enough for him to rally feel it. I mean it didnt hurt him or anything haha. It just surprised him. Ok now I gotta catch up. haha MEGAN~ haha awe I have had a few dreams about life with baby but they are never pleasent. They are always about forgetting her or dropping her. haha Or that I give birth to a walking toddler. haha About the craving thing, I occa__sionally have a craving every now and then but I have gotten to the point to where I HATE eating. I cant eat that much and always get Heart Burn after so it is not enjoyable for me anymore. haha. STEPH~ haha Too cute! I like it too and have this little vision or hercrawling around an when standing her little belly pokes out. haha OH and when yuo get him little trunks dont foret to get him a hat and little sungla__ses. haha Yeah about the induction thingthey said they just start off regular and are consistant from the get go and that is why people say that they hurt more. JMEJO~ HAHAHA I kept thinking and sorry if this is crude, that what if mine like comes outa me and then during s_x Shon would thnk I sprouted a Penis. hahaha This is your first baby right? I heard that they are usually really close to your EDD or a little late. But yeah that would suck bad especially if you were in the middle of speaking with clients or in a meeting. hahaha Have you seen loko whos talking with Kirstie Alley and John Travolta? haha the image of her in abor while in the ameeting popped in my head when you said that. haha MIA~ hahaha I know! I freakin start talking and half to respond to everything. I think it is. haha So who would you have me make it out to? haha Glad to hear the cla__ses are going good! That is something I really wanna start after Brianna is born is online cla__ses. Are they hard to keep up with? About the pain..... I keep telling shon that in less then 5 weeks I will be going through the greatest amount of pain I have ever felt... and it is his fault. haha I wanna try to go natural too but I think I am gonna punk out and whimper for the epid. hahaha I feel that hardening thingy you described. It is the reason I have a problem tying my shoes and bending over. Maybe its herb___t I dunno? LESLEY~ hahaha DO IT!! They ladies at the L&D also told me that Chamomille (sp?) tea can start contractions too. I am 25 weks manana so I am not that far behind. But it feels like it is. haha Damn so you and MIA!!! One more week til full term!! I am jealous. I wanna skip ahead to the front of the cla__s too. BECCA~ haha Who was the one that said "mallow" brain? haha I feel you I do the same. SHALA~ haha No I would have laughed too. you should have screamed BE A MAN!!! NOt a Puss.haha jk jk jk. Holy C___p the head got stuck!? Is she a eal small girl that had a big ol baby? Ugh anotherthing to worry about! Poor baby. I read somewhere that when they get stuck that they come out with bruisingfrom the pushing on their little faces. :( Ok I think I am getting real long here and I know I never shut up and alway say I should. haha

 

jmejo2 - January 17

Jenn~ this is my second baby. With my first everything was smooth and I didn't have much to complain about except the labor and well leg cramps. Never felt a contraction til I went into active labor, etc. This one-I feel the contractions, doc did say I was feeling real contractions not BH and that it was normal at this time. Luckily I don't have to meet with clients or anything but, there is only me and another girl in the office...our boss is out most of the time but he is a male chauvinistic pig-well the girl is leaving for Israel Feb 14th, I scheduled my maternity leave for Feb 18th...the 14th is on a Thurs so for 2 days I will be here alone and if my boss is out I will have to leave office unattending-I ain't playin if I go into labor I am leaving whether or not he is here! In the worst way I do hope that maybe I go into labor by no later than the 13th or sometime after the 18th...that away i won't feel guilty if I have to leave. My hubby was freakin' out when I told him that last night. I tried to get him to look but he wouldn't. Weak ASS! My hubby is a baby-he is scared of needles and has a weak stomach when it comes to gross stuff. He is scared when Hayden's born that he will pa__s out from grossness....I told him to just stay away from the waist down during the delivery. LOL

 

jmejo2 - January 17

Oh and Jenn-I have to disagree with the t_tle today...it seems like it's taking Feb FOREVER to get here!
