Just wondering what's going on with you guys this week. I'm having my first internal exam today. I also have been having more back pain in the last few days. Just really getting anxious!

i'm having my first one today too. here in an hour. Back Pain can't remember when i started to have it. mostly at night when i want to sleep. My Kid is just so big he makes my ribs hurt cuz he puts his b___t up into them. I feel him dropping down. Have been for the past week or so. i'm getting so anxious too. i just can't wait to have him. Dec. 4th just seems like such a long ways away when its only 2 weeks.

I am due dec 2 and having minor back pain. LAst visit I was only 1cm dilated. I am thinking that baby is never going to get here :(

I ended up having a great appointment. I was 2cm dilated, 50% effaced and at -1 station. He said that the station is about the most important thing at this point. He also said that he guesses I'll go into labor this weekend. And then, the most wonderful thing he said was that if I do go late, he wont let me go over one week late. I was about to die thinking about going 2 weeks over. Anyway, I'm encouraged that something has happened and that her head it pretty deep in my pelvis. Does anyone else know their station???

I am due Dec 6th. I have a lot of pressure. I am dilated to a 2 and am 50% effaced, but my doctor did not seem impressed, like I am going the distance. I dont want to, but I do. I am starting to get mixed emotions about this delivery. I just cant stand the waiting and going to bed everynight wondering if I am going to wake up in labor.

Nat, I know the feeling. It's such a disappointment each morning to wake up with nothing.... :(

I know what you girls mean about the waiting. I don't want to get my head too wrapped up around going early, but Dec. 5 seems like so far off- isn't that silly! I try not to think about it too much but it is impossible when I am having so many labor symptoms.

I have been having contractions 2 - 5 minutesa apart since 11/17. Been 2 cm & 80% effaces since then also, they told me to wait till I can't walk or talk thru a contraction before I go to the hospital, they will induce 12/5 if I haven't had him yet and I am due 12/3 but my dr is on vacation that week so I must wait till that Monday -like another dr couldn't induce??!!?? Maybe he'll come earlier. I've been feeling sick to my stomache and been losing my mucous plug in stages. I hate waiting and am so uncomfortable but at the worst I have 2 weeks so I guess I can wait.

I'm Only at 1 cm. Tonight the baby has been pushing down alot though. No contractions though. I just can't wait to go into labor.

 

Brooke - November 22

Erin, are you still having contractions that close together.... What do they feel like? Are you still working or are you at home?? Good luck, maybe you'll go into labor soon!

Brooke, now I'm at -1 station, am 90% effaced and 2cm. I wonder how low of a station you can be without going into labor...?

 

Brooke - November 22

Ca__sie, that's awesome news!!! Did your doctor indicate how close he/she thinks you are? I think you would most likely be in labor at +1 - +5. Some people are in labor at -3, but I think +1 and further is pretty far in the pelvis and ready to come out. I've been having more cramps today. I usually only feel them at night. Hopefully, this means more progress!!

 

Brooke - November 22

Ca__sie, I would reading under a different thread that you were 0 station last week, which is lower than -1. Are you sure they didn't mean +1 this time??? Was it the same doctor?? That seems odd.

 

Ca__sie - November 22

Brooke... I was just re-writing on some other threads about this. I'm not sure what is going on because yes, last week I was supposedly at 0 station and this week he said -1. Same doctor. Hmmm.... I'm thinking that maybe I'm between 0 and -1 and he just estimated in different directions each time? It didn't register what he said though till I got home and wrote about it. I wish I could ask him about it now. I was reading on it, and I think if I were actually at +1, that I'd be in labor.

Woke up once again with nothing... :( I hope this weekend will prove to be a lucky one!!
