Opps Double post!
I was sick yesterday. I had diarrhea (sp?) and gas pains for about 18 hours. It was miserable. It was also my DH's first night shift. So I was by myself with Owen all but about 2 hours of the day. It was a looong day. The silver lining is that I lost a couple pounds.
My body does feel different now though. I feel like it's definitely gearing up to go into labor. Nothing that I can explain, just something I feel. Might all be in my head though, hard to say. Wish me luck.
Not much going on this week, just going to do a lot of waiting and paying attention to my body. But hopefully not too much attention, I could drive myself crazy!
Maybe the diarrhea is a good sign - your body purging itself in preparation. There's a silver lining for you to consider! Hang in there, you're getting closer & closer . . .
Ooooooooo you are getting so close!!!!! Very exciting!!!
I have an almost 2-year old so I honestly know the stress you are feeling!!!
I am impressed you had a party and made all those cupcakes!! Huge Kudos Mama!!!!
I'm so excited for you. For some reason, I totally believe your instincts are right. Who knows?
I'm glad the party went well, you sounded so much better after it was over.

I think the upset intestines are a good sign! Sounds like things are going pretty well mama. Keep us posted if you can

Im thinking boy bump.
Hey Sarah!! It is very cool to read your lodge! Sorry that labour didn't eventuate but it may be just around the corner!
Oh, I was hoping!
Still hanging in there. Really wanting to go this weekend though. I'm okay being pregnant for a while yet, I'm just so excited to meet this little one that it's getting really hard to be patient.
It's nice to hear you are still enjoying pregnancy. I can relate. I am loving being pregnant and I know I'm going to miss it but it is so exciting to think about meeting this new little person who's been hiding out for so long.
I hope things are still progressing for you.
Sending you labour vibes!
Okay, so some things have been happening. DH and I DTD about midnight lastnight and I immediately started having contractions about four minutes apart. This lasted about 45 minutes when I decided to take a shower to see if that would affect things either way. At that point they had already started diminishing in intensity if not frequency. I had 3 or 4 after the shower but was then able to go to sleep.
I woke DH up about 8:30 to DTD again. Then went walking for an hour. I had pretty much the same pattern as before. Strong, frequent contractions that just get less and less intense and finally peter out.
Although at this point I'm really sore. It feels like the baby's head has dropped as a result of all this and I'm pretty much just constantly crampy. I see my midwife today and we'll go from there. I am hopeful that maybe now that baby is engaged (I hope), my body will make some painless progress before labor really does kick in for good.
I'll update later when I have more info! Hopefully we'll have a baby soon!
Keep on DTD, hehe.. it sounds like its working. We'll be watching for updates
Wow- that some great dtd there! I hope it works!
Ohh sounds promising!!! KUP!!! Hope your little comes soon!
Wow, good for you! I never feel like DTD before I delivered, let alone twice! Sounds like it's helping you make some good progress. ELV to you!
Yay! Keep those love vibes coming!
I've already commented on your sex fest in my lodge!! LOL!
Still here, still pregnant. No contractions to speak of today. I really wanted to have baby today, but it's probably good that it's not happening. For some reason, I'm really tired today. All I want to do is rest and sleep.
My midwife was happy with my progress yesterday and thinks she will be "seeing me soon." I continued to have small, somehwat frequent pains all day yesterday until I went to sleep. Hopefully I can get rested up and start all over again soon.
I'm so excited!! :jumpingbeans: I can't wait for your birth story!!!!
Well, sounds like the DTD is working some, although I wish they contractions had continued for you. Have you been trying anything else? Not that you have to, just curious.
Best wishes for rest today and some contractions soon!
Hang in there! It wont be too much longer!!!
did you read my MW's orgasm story on - i think it was taryl's lodge? you have to go for ten, according to olivia, you're baby will slide right out! get some rest - you'll need it!
10 orgasms? That would be so nice! DH tries his best, but its very hard to get me to O these days.
Sending you some ELV!
Wow, 10 orgasms!! :shock: I think I would pass out from sheer exhaustion before I got to #10!
I was just checking in, how are you doing today?
I'm doing fine today. Just a little impatient and dissapointed. I thought last night was it for sure. I was up from 2:30am to 5:30 am with pretty strong contractions 4 minutes apart. Just as they started to intensify, I decided to take a shower to see if I was in real labor or not. So, of course, they stopped and I was able to go to sleep. Which I guess is good, but I was really hoping that was it.
So my DH gets home from work tonight at 2:30am and I'll see if he's up to gettin it on again. I REALLY would like to go into labor tonight. I'm sure he feels so used...
Thanks for checking in on me everyone. I'll be sure to keep you posted. No news is no news from me.
oh shucks. Hang in there hun..hopefully your little one will arrive soon.
Sounds like your body is getting ready! It's coming together, here's hoping for more O's
You are doing great!!!! Hope it happens soon!!
I remember "using" my DH too! LOL. He felt the same way.
Hope things start moving along for you, good luck tonight!
Sounds like your body is gearing up---ahh, poor dh being "used", lol!
