Re: DUE DATE!!!!!!

    Due March 6th, went two weeks early with my first, so who knows when this one will make his debut (it's more of a mind trip because of the preterm labor scare we had).  I'm also really tired of people asking me why I haven't 'squirted' this kid out yet.  Yeah, not my favorite kind of word association...
    If I wasn't on my iPad I'd gif the crap out of this thread to show you my face when I read that. Just google image  "ew gif" and you can see my response. Why. Just...why?

    @Orion815 I don't want to burst your bubble but every FTM I've ever spoken to feels like they are going to go early :-) (most don't!) not trying to say you won't but don't be discouraged if you get close to your due date either. I was SO prepared to go early with #1 and then was so discouraged the last week or two!
    This is what I was thinking too...so many people think they are going to go early, and while some do, many don't. This is just what 9 months pregnant feels like. I'm totally guilty of it  too - it's just so uncomfortable at the end that you convince yourself it MUST be any day now! They'll all come out at some point!

    I'm a FTM (35 weeks) and while I'd love for baby to arrive one or two weeks early, it drives me bat shit crazy when co-workers comment that they just know he'll arrive in 2 weeks, not 5. I really wanna say, just stop trying to get me all riled up ppl! Ready to meet my little guy but I know I could easily go past 40 weeks.

  • Due March 7th. Was 50% and fingertip at 36 weeks almost two weeks ago. I wouldn't be so impatient if I wasn't working til the end. I'm so over picking out clothes that don't fit and getting myself put together every morning. I prefer my non pregnancy job in a uniform.

  • Due March 3rd! Seems like it's coming so fast! I feel like I'm not prepared, must be a FTM thing. I have literally everything all organized and set up, packed and ready for hospital. Can't wait to meet my little bundle of joy!!

  • My due date is March 16th, but I'm scheduled for a repeat cesarean section on March 11th. I hope not to go early. Still two weeks of work left, and still have some last minute things to take care of! My DD was born at 41 weeks 6 days and weighed 7lbs 13oz. Baby brother will be here soon! 
  • I'm due March 31st. , but in Norway the length of a pregnancy is 283 days and not 280 days.... Anyway it's just a guessing game which day it is gonna be and next to my EDD they've noted that I'll most likely give birth between 17th. of March and 13th. of April. We'll see when she wants to come  :)

  • Due March 30th doctor thinks I won't make it to my Bowling tournament on the 18th. Husband is convinced our girl will be here on the 15th. So we will see what she wants to do. Feeling big, and morning sickness is back and the heart burn is kicking my rear end but feeling baby girl kick reminds me it's all worth it. Going next two weeks to finish getting stuff we need for her and to have hospital bags backed

  • I'm due March 31 and am so ready! This is my second pregnancy and I went into labor on my due date the first time, so I'm hoping sooner rather than later but you never know. My mom said I was 6 days late, but then my brother didn't want to come out, finally induced at 41+6. Sure hope that's not the case here! :) Good luck to everyone!

    Then you can also imagine my reaction to the Doritos Superbowl commercial.  Absolutely terrible.

    OMG this. I'm not actually looking for DD to come early but I am SO over getting dressed for work 3-4x a week and trekking into the city. If I could just rock out the next 4 weeks in sweats id be marginally happier. It was so much easier being 9 mos pregnant in the summer!!!

  • March 17! DD was born at 40+3 so I won't be surprised if this one goes past the EDD too. But you never know!!

  • March 25!  It's been a turbulent journey, but we are so close to the finish line!  I'm very uncomfortable on bed & pelvic rest, but it is what it is.  I hope everyone is feeling okay!

  • Due March 19th but not quite sure when she may make her debut. Had pre-term labor scare at 30 weeks with constant contracts but was brought on by a uti. Was just back at the hospital again with contractions again. Staying on my procardia even longer than they wanted me to help combat the labor. So she may make her debut early after I'm off the meds but she's not very big yet you can't even tell I'm due in just under a month I look like I'm only maybe 7 months along. Just praying she's healthy! Will be a FTM on my own with husband being in the army so will be doing it on my own...wish me luck!

  • I was March 1st but my doctor says February 28th now... this is my first and its a girl
  • March 11th here with our second and I'm making no predictions. It will happen when it happens.

  • I'm due March 18th and ready to meet my little guy already
  • Due March 7...two weeks from today! Crazy how it's so close! I plan on working all the way through, but of course, I am on his terms!

  • I'm due the 4th and just had my exam today, I'm 2 cm dilated and my cervix has dropped. I know that doesn't mean labor is soon, but had a mild panic attack anyway. I have a gut feeling that she's going to be late.

    Me too. My office manager asked if this week was going to be my last week at work. I laughed and said yeah, if I have a baby this weekend.

    I need to work to accrue as much time as possible before going on maternity leave. I will have about 8 weeks, but have to use all my vacation and sick time while off. It sucks, but hubs and I can not survive with only one income! Sucks I will have nothing when I come back, but at least I will have something rolling in while out! Good luck with your upcoming arrival! :-)

    Due March 10 a day before my bday
    hecubus330
  • 2 weeks from today!!!! Wooooooooo!
  • Due date March 31st, but have been over it since mid January. Have had horrible can't walk or move or breathe pains all over for almost two months,  which followed the horrible morning sickness. I'm so excited for my little boy, but this pain can be over now. 
    Only getting bp and heart rate exams,  otherwise no dilation or otherwise type. 
  • my guess date is The Ides, but i don't tend to go early (last babe was a 41wk'er); although this pregnancy officially has me feeling defeated - i have never felt so "done" with any of the other three.

  • March 18th.  LO was breech about a month ago but as of first internal exam last week, no dilation or effacement; baby was head down but still high. No discussion of induction or c-section.  I feel blessed that I've had an "easy" pregnancy with no yucky symptoms. I feel baby has maybe dropped just a tad this week as I've felt more of a waddle the last few days, but this could be due to LO pressing on a nerve (it's felt like I was punched one one side of my rear end the last two days, but it's gone today). Not feeling that "over it" feeling just yet but still have a few weeks to go.


  • I am due March 4th,  I would live to have the baby on the leap year but I'm a FTM so doubt the baby will join us early. Doc said if I make it to my appointment on Wed we have to talk about induction,  I just hope it comes before that point! 
    hecubus330
  • I am due March 14th.  I was induced with my first at 41w+3d, the second came a day after his due date.  I am hoping this one waits until his due date because we still have nothing ready!  We need to get some things together this weekend!  Having two kids involved in activities plus working full time definitely put me behind the eight ball this time!!   I feel like he is moving down but we'll see tomorrow at my appointment if there is any progress!!  Good luck to everyone!
    ecswim2fast
  • Due March 3rd, induction set for the 7th at midnight. She'll be born on the 8th (which is funny as soon as doc said the 8th, i kept thinking there is a significance with that date and couldn't put my finger on it.  About 5 mins before logging on the bump, it dawned on me.  DH and i started dating on 3/8 and that was originally our wedding date.  Damn baby brain got me again!)  She's cozy in there despite all the cramping and contractions I've had over the last week.  Nothing consistent , nothing timeable.  Still too high up and no dilation/ no effacing.  1 week to go and I have a love hate thing going on.  Happy to have a bit of time to get organized, ready to start the journey with the  LO :)

  • Due 3/7. Yesterday at 39+1 was 1cm, 50%, and -2 station. That was progress from 36weeks when I was only fingertip dilated and  -3 station. 

    He said he stretched it a little but won't do any sweeps because of infection risk. Next week at 40+1 we will check again and have ultrasound to check size and fluid levels. 
  • Due 3/26. Today at 36w4d, still 80% and 0 station, but now I am a full 2cm dilated.  Doctor said if I were to go into labor they would not stop it.

    Due 3/15 and like the other PPs can't wait!! I just keep counting down to the end of March so I take care of worst case scenario.  The hardest part for me is everyone checking in all the time to see if something is happening.  I started a list and promised everyone husband will keep them updated so they can start bugging him! ;)

  • Due March 25th and it feels both so far away and way too close all at the same time. I'm so tired of being pregnant. My feet are ridiculousl swollen, and my diet has drastically changed thanks to gestational diabetes. Yet, on the other hand, the nursery still isn't complete and there are a few more important purchases we have yet to make thanks to lack of funds (I got laid off back in November just as we were recovering from DH being laid off from Jan-Aug), like a car seat. O.O

  • Due 3/14 but not ready!  DR said we will check next week and possibly strip my membrane if I am dilated.  My mom is going out of town this weekend which makes me think he will try to make an appearance because it is the one time it would be really inconvenient!  I'm fully prepared for (and ok with) going passed my due date which I think puts me in a minority!

  • I'm due March 9th and I'm so ready. I am so excited to meet the baby, find out the sex, and be on maternity leave! People have said since November that there was no way I would make it until March, so that has made me even more impatient.

  • Today, March 6th and I feel nothing at all.
    hecubus330
  • Due 3/24, just had an appointment today, still not dilated but 50% effaced. I am with some of you other ladies where it seems so close, yet so far away and just feel so done with this pregnancy. I love having him in there but am really getting tired of being uncomfortable ALL the time, constant heartburn no matter what I take and swollen feet (flats and flip-flops from here on out since that's all me feet fit into!). I'm not holding my breath on his coming early and am actually trying to mentally prepare myself on him going past his due date, just in case it happens.
