Re: 39-40 weekers

  • 39 weeks 6 days, and I'm fully prepared to be a March mom Tongue Tied  haha 

    Lots of BH, and some other annoying pregnancy symptoms, but nothing at all that says, "Hey, you're gonna have a baby soon." Oy.

  • due date today! ...been having BH for weeks and weeks but like PP said, nothing that says, "it's baby time!" ...at my 39 week appt i was 3cm, 80%, and -1. hoping for an exit in a few days!
  • My due date was yesterday, but I am going in at 5:30 AM tomorrow to be induced (due to lower fluid levels). I have been having some irregular contractions for the past few days and think I started to lose my mucous plug last week, but no signs of this LO coming on its own before tomorrow. Good luck to everyone still waiting for their LO's arrival!
  • 39 weeks and 1 day. Prodromal labor for about three weeks.  Gross.  SOo many contractions and cramps this weekend I really thought it was go time, then after four hours of 4-6 minutes contractions it all stopped. Ugh! 

    I won't be a March mamma because of placenta issues I don't get to go past 40 weeks. So it will be this week one way or another.  Walking, squats, yoga ball, red rasberry tea, MORE WALKING, and so much sex - still nothing.  Will get checked today at 39 week appt, cautiously optimistic that there will be some progress.  Some softening maybe.

     Good luck ladies, I proud of us all for making it and despite the wining and complaining - which we totally have a right to do!! - we are a tough crew!   

  • 40 weeks 4 days

    Today is my Birthday and all I want is to have my baby girl in my arms.

    No signs that labor is near. Braxton Hicks have stopped completely. I have eaten pineapple, spicy foods, raspberry leaf tea, sex, long walks and bumpy car rides.

  • 40 weeks 1 day...2 cm and a lot of softening, but nothing eventful happening, not even gas. Appointment NEXT monday to talk about induction...

    Good luck everyone =) 

  • 39 weeks today and nothing! BHs like crazy but not dilated at all:( I have a feeling I'll be a March mama. Hopefully at my appointment this Wednesday there is some progress just to give me a little hope--I've been so uncomfortable!
  • 39w,1d and showing no signs LO is ready to join us. Feel her moving plenty, but no BH, no signs of mucous plug/show. Just some serious pelvic pressure and soreness when walking, standing.

  • My due date is tomorrow. I lost my mucus plug on Friday and got really excited even though I know it doesn't really mean anything unless accompanied by other signs of labor. I was 1.5 cm and 70% effaced at my 38 week appt and exactly the same at my 39 week. I have my 40 wk tomorrow and I am hoping there is some kind of change. I am walking, bouncing on my exercise ball, eating pineapple and taking EPO. I hope we all get to meet our babies really soon!!! Good luck!

  • I'm 40 weeks, 4 days. Having some serious cramps this morning, so hoping that leads to something. If not, I will be going in Thursday night to be induced.

  • 39 weeks 3 days...some occasional painful contractions but nothing else really. Hoping things progress soon because my blood pressure has been much too high lately and I would rather not be induced

  • 39 weeks and 5 days! I have been 1 cm for 3 weeks. Have my 40 wk appointment on Thursday which is my due date. If baby boy doesn't come on his own by then we will be making an appointment to induce since he is already so incredibly low! Good luck to all you ladies! I hope you get to meet your LO's soon!

  • Due Thursday (is that 39w4d?)

    Watermelon baby

    I've had a lot of braxton hicks and shooting pain in my back. Ate pineapple and will NOT make that mistake again, as it caused me to have irregular painful contractions for a few hours but led to nothing. Lots of bouncing on the birthing ball, and I walk a ton too.

    1cm dilated at my first check last Wednesday, but they didn't tell me anything else. No loss of mucus plug or any other signs.

    I finally got a few good nights of sleep so I'm coping better with the fact that this baby may not come until March.

  • I'm 40 weeks 2 days. At my appt on Thurs I was 2cm and 80 effaced. I haven't had any real contractions and only a couple of BH each day.
    With my first, I was induced 2 weeks after my EDD. Never went into labor. My OB this time said she doesn't think I'll go that late again, which is encouraging. I am thankful, though, for an OB that lets me go 2 weeks late. Clearly my babies are in no rush to exit.

  • 39 weeks today.  DD was born at 38w4d, so this is new territory for me.  I'm ready to meet this baby girl!

  • I am ready -- all systems are go on the home front (altho DH has a big day at work tomorrow and would prefer one more day) - but really, I am ready. Baby? Probably not so much. I have been having crazy BH's so that I feel like my stomach is a rock, but I have not had any checks so no idea about progress. Had a few crampy cramps, but nothing to write home about. Signs that my MP is going, but nothing overwhelming there either. 

    But with my last one, I had nothing and then lost MP and started contractions and baby came next day - so am hoping that could all start tomorrow, or wed. but I may still be here 2 weeks from now.....

  • 39 weeks tomorrow and still in the game! I haven't had any internals so no idea about what's going on in there. Lots of pressure, Braxton Hicks, and menstrual-like cramps. Otherwise, nothing! I am thinking that a March baby is a very real possibility. Good luck to all of you (us)!

  • 39 weeks today. After a round of prodromal labor on Wednesday night, I thought things would pick back up sometime soon after. I've been losing my MP for the past two days, and have an increase in dc (pleasant, I know). Lots of BH's, as well. I was checked on Thursday and was 1 cm, 80% effaced, and DD is at a 0 station. DH and I DTD last night for the first time since our prodromal labor night, and nothing happened. DS came at 39w4d, so I'm really hoping this LO follows suit and comes soon! Baby dust all around!

  • 39 w2d we have a date-this Thursday! Baby turned breech again so we're scheduled for a CS. Can't wait to meet little one and be able to breathe again since baby boy has been comfiest in my ribs for the past 3 months!

  • 40w4d today and pretty miserable.  DS2 came at 40w5d, so my fingers are crossed that maybe tonight will be the night.  I'm not sure I can do this another week.

  • Due date today and no signs that baby is even close to being ready to come out!  (No BH, mucus plug, bloody show, etc, etc, etc). 

    Fingers and toes and well, everything but legs crossed for everyone! :)

  • 39 weeks today! I've had on and off contractions/cramping and back pain but nothing lasts... I sit on a yoga ball everyday doing hip circles, sex , sweeping/mopping. At 38 weeks I was 1 cm and still "thick" I'll find out tomorrow if the stretching last week helped(doubtful). I really don't want to be a March mommy! :(

  • I'm not 39 weeks until tommorrow, but golly I am so done. Ill admit I have looked up natural ways to push labor along, I just want baby out! Aside from sex I won't be trying any of them, well maybe ill ask doc to sweep my membrane? I thought last night was it, lost a good chuck of my mucus plug in the morning, then it started comin out with blood streaks until it was all bloody. Went to sleep last night and woke up with horrible back pains and cramping and constant need to go potty. It was like this for 3 hours until I was so uncomfortable I decided to relax in the tub. Laid in the tub for an hour and then went to the room and fell asleep, when I woke up it was all gone. What a bummer.

    We are expecting snow so I am hoping LO comes and I get a few extra days off with DH during the snow days. We live only a mile from the hospital so I'm not to worried about making it if a storm does come.

    I know The Lord won't give me anything I can't handle but I sure do feel like I'm at the breaking point with this pregnancy thing. It's really becoming physically and emotionally difficult

     

     

     

  • 39 weeks 5 days...

     

    I thought I was the only one left on here that hasn't went into labor. Glad I'm not the only one. I have had no signs of labor what so ever so I feel  that I am going to go all the way to my induction date next week :(  

  • 39w6d and no major signs of this little guy coming out any time soon. Some minor contractions but no dilation, minor cervix softening, still have mucus plug...this baby will be knocking at March.....
