KarenY - November 30

I'll be 40 weeks on this coming friday but I can only feel baby's head pressure on my pelvic area, had some diarrhoea and that's all. I tried doing housework, squatting excercise and had s_x but doesn't seems to work. I'm losing my patience and I just hate to be induced. I'm so boring sitting at home now just waiting for the day to come, I'm so frustrated.

Well, I went to the dr yesterday and still nothing. They said my cervix seems softer though. Wa hoo. I was told they would induce me on the 15th, but that seems so far away. But i have finally excepted there is nothing i can do.

urgh dont worry with my first daughter it was 1 week before my due date and I went for my weekly exam and the doctor told me I would probaly be late cause I was not dialated at all. Well the next night I went into labour and had my daughter after only 6 hours of contractions

I was wondering if "Me Too" was still out there? Wanted to see how your Dr. appt went.

To Me Too: Humm...this site doesn't update too well. Since I posted something, did I get your update...I went to the Dr. and still no progress. The doctor in my grp practice that I saw this time offers no information.

URGH: I'm sorry to hear that. When is your next appt? Mine is on the 7th. I have been walking like crazy but it gets kinda boring considering I am by myself on the treadmill.

LOL! Treadmill...not a bad idea. I can hardly stand though. I put on 2 pounds this week...doctor said it was water weight but I beg to differ...I think baby put on the weight...I am in extreme pain. Next appointment is the 6th.

I gained 2 lbs this week also. Makes me feel awful since I am so close and still gaining weight. I have to admit that I do waddle but they keep telling me to walk. My hubby laughs at me cuz my belly moves from side to side when I walk. I guess it is kinda funny. Anyway, where are you from? I am from Georgia. I'm so thankful that its not to hot or too cold.

I'm in N. Carolina. Not too bad weather wise here either. I don't waddle, but rather slump over! My belly moves all about, with feet and hands poking out...feel like I'm bruising from the inside out! My husband has the sympathy pains! Poor fella! LOL!!

I feel like I am truly going to pop - like there is no more room what so ever. Well, sometimes when I am sitting down if I bend over to tie my shoes or just to change position, my belly makes a funny noise like water sloshing around. Has that happened to you? Very strange. It doesn't help either that lately I have been worrying about something happening to her since she is so big now and being too stubborn to come play.

I do have strange watery noises. Yesterday one side of my belly said "no" and the other side said "yes". I think the baby has started talking she's been in there so long! LOL!!! I'm thinking about reposting this threat to "40...I mean 50 weeks AND NO signs of labor".

BTW, have you started being 'stalked' by family and friends calling for updates?

 

URGH - December 1

I'm going to run now, phone is ringing off the hook tonight...will check in tomorrow.

I'm still here with NOTHING! Not a pain or a twinge. I wish so bad I would have a contraction...... I think we are both due the 5th, right URGH?? I am also in NC. And my next appointment is the 6th. I'm hoping if she hasn't come yet, that I will be induced on the 7th. I plan to poor on the drama at my next visit if I'm still hanging on. OH, I'M SO ANXIOUS!!!!! Are you all having boys or girls??

 

Me too - December 2

URGH: you are so funny. I am going to be so sad if I have to do this on my own soon so don't have your baby just yet :-) And yes, my phone has been ringing off the hook. It gets annoying when both of our mothers call at least once a day to see if I had the baby yet. Do they really think we wouldn't call them (especially since they both live near us and are planning to go to the hospital with us)?!? I even have a friend from work to calls to check in and tell me about all my customers who keep inquiring about me. Its kinda depressing. I am looking forward to the day that I can actually say yes she is finally here. Brooke: I am having a girl. How about you? Let me know if that works at your next appt. I might have to try that also. I just don't think I can wait til the 15th to be induced.

our original due date was 11/30 and at 34 weeks they informed us that our due date according to our 18 week ultasound is 12/6, so i kinda share all of your pain! I have felt the baby very low for about a month now, such pressure it feels on my pubic bone. We started fielding calls about labor from friends and distant family on tuesday 11/30 and we have to explain the mix up and let them know we could have two weeks after 12/06, just thinking about that option makes me crazy as iI had my last day of work 11/30.
