Ladies it is our time. I know I jumped the gun a little bit but we already have mama's amongst us. Congrats to Brandy, who had Serenity on January 15th, Sarah who welcomed her little boy Kerrick into the world on January 23rd, Stephanie's little Logan will be here today sometime hopefully. Mia and Becca are ready to pop and Megan's little Brinkley is trying to feel the air. It has been a long long nine months and we are finally gearing up to see the long awaited arrivals and new additions to our families. So for those of us still waiting impatiently in line lets enjoy these last few weeks we have feeling our babies kick and alone with our partners. Guys we are here.

So i started it again. There are some good update on the other thread so make sure to catch up. :) I am doing good and getting more and more uncomfy every single day. That is pretty much it and ill check back later.

Megan haha I hope to God you are not pregnant for five years although it would be interesting to see and also you might get some money from the medical community. haha Are you trying to do the nesting thing? YAY!!!! Stephanie~ I asked about cytotek at my birth eduction cla__s when she brought up induction methods and she got kinda irrated by the question. haha She said that no it is not approved my the FDA but it works well and that they can either give it to you orally or insert it into the v____a. She said that in the wazoo is better because if you start you start to show bad signs that the baby or you are not handling it well they can take it out. Remember that you can always deny a medication and request something else. It is not the only thing out there and you are going to be under enough stress as it is. Take something that you are 100% comfortable with and not worrying about in conjunction with trying to push out a watermelon through a coke can. haha Good luck tonight mama! I hope it goes by quckly and complicated free.

Lesley haha you like that eh? I wanted to put THAR SHE BLOWS but thought it might offend someone. haha what is SPD? Shala~ it snt so bad because she has started to drop. I still get it though from time to time. Oh yeah and the BH are not as unnoticable as they make it seem. haha

 

treshala - January 28

I know...i wonder could it have been a REAL contraction??! I dont know...and i have been having pains in my pelvic regioun...like by the "hooha" but its the actual bone down there??? I dunno...My cousin dreamt that i had a 9 POUND 9 OZ BABY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I was like...was it by C section lol

 

jmejo2 - January 28

Shala~Some of those BH contractions are ghastly! I have had quite a few that made me stop and think should I start timing these boogers now? Meg~hopefully you will go sooner than five years-watch tonight you will make a trip back to hospital, this time with success...I know we are all so ready to get this over with-just cause being so swoll up isn't all it's cracked up to be! LOL. Jenn~hopefully we will be able to say something really positive towards progression soon enough. I am anxiously waiting my appt on Thursday-although I don't know why-those internals do suck! I just hope they say something "encouraging" I mean heck-the past few weeks I have felt like I should be starting my period anyday and that sucks. I never liked PMS before but heck-can you guys say the thought of a month of it really b__ws!

 

jmejo2 - January 28

Oh and Steph~I am sure everything will be okay today. I heard that cytotech was possibly better than inducing with pitocin.

where did my feet go????/ now i have the poos i know tmi but in our forum tmi is a relative concept..lol, so im starting to get excited cause i know thats another sign of this will be over soon!!.. have to run ladies.. ttyl

 

jmejo2 - January 28

Yeah Meg~sounds like you are getting really close. It maybe TMI but you know it really sucks when you always feel like you gotta go and can't get anything out....I would be happy to scream out-I got the poos! LOL

 

jmejo2 - January 28

Meg~how are you surviving this waiting-I know it's got to be AGONIZING! I am at work and the past few weeks I have been so antsy. I almost wish I would go into labor just to get out of here a little earlier than planned. I wondered why I thought I could do this....with all my "PMS" my boss is really getting on my nerves! We are going through a system conversion here and was told by our corporate office that we could no longer use our program as of 3 o'clock Friday and wouldn't you know the dumb man would come in here with c___p right at 3 that "HAS" to be done! JERK!

Grrr...went to my appointment today and it sucked! well nothing wrong, BP and pee ok, so thats good, but as usual no internal, she said the baby's head was well down and no wonder I was feeling pressure, but then wrote on the notes the head was only 1/5 engaged, the same as 2 weeks ago (which i didnt read until i left) so was she just BS me? Then no weekly appointments for me either, ive to go back on the 12th Feb (my EDD is 7th Feb) where she'll do a membrane sweep and give me an induction date - which is something I guess! ! I just wanted her to say I was going to go tomorrow, or they made a mistake with my dates and I needed to be induced just now or..something lol! How's everyone else getting on?

 

jmejo2 - January 29

Lesley~What's up with your doc-you think she would want to see you at least one more time before your EDD. That's crazy!

Hi everyone! Well, appntment last friday went ok... they measured and measured and measured poor lo (she didnt like it at all - she kept moving away everytime they tried to get a measurement or she just kicked against the scanner! lol!) well, she is still measuring behind about 2wks... so she is a small girl, but her head is measuring a week ahead... which i thought was odd, but the doc said it was common! well, considering my mom said that me and both my sisters had big heads at birth and so did dh (according to his side of the family) - my poor lo really didnt stand a chance! haha! well, i'm not too worried anymore (just a little) went back to the doc yesterday, cos i had some weird pain just above my belly by my ribs and well it doesnt seem to have been anything, cos doc didnt seem to concerned. Weekly visits start next week, cos it seems that my bp decided to get on the high side so doc wants to monitor that, also i have been referred to another doc to check my placental functions (anyone know what thats about) - guess he wants to see whether everything is getting to lo as it should from my placenta... but does anyone know how they do that?? Sometimes i feel like my doc isnt telling me everything he should be - like he's keeping stuff from me so that i dont worry... but that makes me more worried!! anyway, my EDD has been pushed back from the 15th to the 20th, so thats an extra week ... although no one thinks i'm even gonna last till the 15th - well just have to see how that goes. I'm officially booked off as of the 01st Feb (YAY!! I cant wait! couting the days...) so, hopefully if she does decide to come early, i hope she gives me at least 1 week to be at home to just relax - thats all i want! anyways, i gotta be off! hope everyone is well, sorry i dont have time to respond to anyone's posts - will try to soon! Have fun =))

I know they seem to have a very blase att_tude its like "well I hope to see you in the labour ward before...but if not see you in 2 weeks time for a membrane sweep" they are just happy for nature to take its course and if anything happens I can call L&D or my doc but at routine appointments all they do is, check BP, check urine, check baby's HB, measure tummy, feel tummy for where baby's head is, so I guess even if she did do this before my due date it wouldnt really say much - an internal would tell me/them so much more, its really hard I have no idea if I have 3 days to go or 3 weeks to go but they just wouldnt do an internal say its un unnecessary!

 

jmejo2 - January 29

Rifqah~It sucks having your EDD pushed back I know...But I still maintain those measurements could be off. LO will come when ready I suppose. I am really wishing I would have taken off sooner! The stress is starting to get to me. Woke up last night with some bad BH contractions which made me feel really mentrually this a.m. Glad my boss left early-may would have chewed him a new one. Lesley~I think that would bother some kind of bad. I know that the effacement/dilation thing can't really tell you anything, but you know it gives us a little hope or encouragement that we are progressing in some way. Dang the way I am feeling right now I about want to go to doctor everyday and say what does this mean, does this mean I am close...LOL. I have my next appt on Thursday and I really almost wish they would tell me go straight to L&D...AS uncomfortable as this is you want to scream out please induce me, do something-I am ready to be able to do something comfortably at least...LOL
