Anyone thinking they will....

Pop before August?

How is everyone doing?
I had my last midwife appointment today before ninjas arrival.
Got my pre op on Thursday!!

I think I have had a couple of small shows but not sure.
He's dropping more and more and has been head down for 4 weeks now!!!

Anyone else??

I feel as though it is probably unlikely. My girls were both late, and this baby isn't nearly as low yet as my second. It sure would be nice though. Smile

It is possible, this will be the longest I have been allowed to keep a baby in. Never went past 38.5 weeks so we shall see. My bags are still only partway packed so I am not really ready. I hope she stays until August but I am getting uncomfortable and feeling some strange sensations, not really painful. Very tired too. And don't have anything attractive to wear at all LOL, never bought maternity clothes, just used my "fat" clothes, which fit until a few days ago...10 days to go!!

Our weather has been unseasonably cool, which I am thankful for, but also very rainy. We lost our best shade tree in a storm wednesday night, it fell right across our driveway.

Wow you are really close!!!!!!!!!
Yay for not buying maternity clothes!!!
I haven't either other than a pair of jeans... Which I haven't worn for a month because its way too hot!!
Living in maxi dresses!!

Oh no to the the tree!!!
Everyone okay???
Not too much damage I hope!!!

What are your strange sensations???
I find when ninja is sleeping he gets soooo heavy!!!!

Hot him kicking just at the bottom if my left boob yesterday... Just under my bra wire... He must have stretched out!!!!!

I am guessing you may be the one to watch!!!!

I think we all need to check in more regularly!!!!

Feeling pretty good other then the weather being really, really hot and muggy. Starting to feel menstrual type cramps. MW said that those cramps signal that the cervix is softening and thinning so hopefully I'm headed in the right direction.

Same here!!!
Been cramping consistently from yesterday and had some red.
Red when I woke up today.
Called hospital they said to check over an hour and take a painkiller.
See if cramps subside.
They haven't.. Pretty constant but then they aren't bad anyhow.

Was funny last night though.
M and I were watching tv and I got a horrible pain in the hip.
My right hop is deffo softening and causing pain but this pain last night had me yelling out and jumping up to try and relieve it!!
M started begging me not to have the baby yet!!! Please don't have anything happen yet!!
I am scared!! I need this last week!!! Please please no surprises... I can deal with it being planned just don't have any more blood or pains or shocks!!
He sounded so pitiful... I had to get him to shut up as I was laughing so much I was sure my waters would break hahahaha

I caught a glance of myself in the mirror yesterday at a friend's house - we don't have any full length mirrors in my house at the moment so I haven't seen myself for over a month. and pictures are not the same... So anyway, I saw myself and thought, "woah, that woman is going to have a baby in the next two weeks!" it was such a weird, almost out-of-body sensation! so when I went to check the calendar, that put me at around the 7th or 8th - I need to make it to the night of the 7th at the earliest so my parents will be here within 8 days after!!! I've been very crampy and I felt the baby burrowing down lower last night! There's no place to set up the pool yet, so I need to at least get through some more boxes before this baby gets earthside!!

I am getting excited to meet all these babies!!

I had my final OB appt this morning, everything looked good and next is the hospital pre-op aug 1!! Really need to finish packing bags for eveyone!

I am finding myself out of breath if I have caffeine or eat too much in a single sitting. I guess maybe I am running out of room? I feel her kick or punch me or squirm everywhere. Even in my girl parts, it must travel from somewhere else because she can't be right there. OB says I am measuring the right size, so maybe she will be bigger than my others? I can't wait to see!!

On a sort of funny note, I had to bring my boys with me to the OB this morning. I knew it was just routine, no undressing, so I figured my biggest problem would be their behavior. Well, I forgot about that poster they have in all the rooms showing the female anatomy. That was a fun conversation with my curious 7 year old boy! haha. Lesson learned, 7 is too old for a boy at the OB office.

Hopefully I dont go early.. never have ... Im not prepared at all ... yes i know bad right .. having 5 other kids to care for takes up all my time. But last night when I was getting up from the computer chair and started to walk off I had headphones rapped around my ankle and took a realy really hard fall ... i landed on my knees and arm but I have a feeling thats why I feel so freakin acky today.. since like 10 this morning ive been having side pains and lower back pains.. So idn ... ima wait it out and see if it subsides maybe take tylenol.... i dont think they are contactions.. but who knows... if it keeps happening i may call the hospital tomorrow to see what they want me to do since i fell.

I don't think I will. Not feeling anything yet. I was induced a week past dd with my daughter, so I'm figuring it will be about the same this go round. I haven't packed my bag yet either. We only live 5-10 from the hospital, so if I forget anything it wouldn't be a huge deal for dh to go get it.
The weather has been amazing here so I guess I'm just enjoying the peace before the storm!

I have been MIA for a long time. I have just been way to busy to even get on my computer. I figured I would check in and see who is already holding their LO and see who is still around. I am doing good. We just got back from a 5 week vacation. We drove about 60 hours in the car and I survived! Pretty good considering we had both kids and a dog with us! It was great. I love seeing my family and spending time with my mom. Before I left for vacation I had an U/S to check on my placenta. At my 17 week anatomy scan the U/S Tech mentioned that it was low. I wanted to check to see if it was still low before we traveled, just for my peace of mind. It is still low. At my 32 wk. appt it was only 1.4 cm from my cervix still too low to deliver vaginally. I go back in tomorrow for another U/S and check up. I will be 38 weeks. I am praying that I have grown enough in the last few weeks to move the placenta up. While I am hoping for a natural birth, I have also had time to prepare myself if I need to have a c-sect.

I am glad to see some babies already and I look forward to all those to come!
