3 days away from my due date

I can't believe how quickly this pregnancy has flown by ! My OB checked me yesterday and I'm 2 centimetres dilated and 70% effaced. She offered to strip my membranes to speed things along, but I said no. I want a natural VBAC without any interventions. I've been having a lot of lower back pain and AF type cramps for the past 2 days, so hopefully that will lead to something soon.

How is everyone else doing ? Anyone else just days away from their EDD ? So exciting seeing all the new babies. I wonder who our first "official" January Mom will be ? Biggrin

Me!!! I'm scheduled for a repeat c/s in...4 days and 19 hours. Wink

I'm excited to meet my new baby boy, I'm excited to get my body back and not be in daily pain and I'm also nervous about it all! I'm not nervous about the c/s, with this being #4, I'm set but adding a NB with my 2 yr old, it's been years since I had multiple LO's! I'm nervous about DH and his work schedule these days (he's an attorney and has tons of cases right now that all need something!). And I'm nervous about my mom being here and me NOT getting annoyed. I need/want her here but I have my ways and she has hers, you know.

I wonder who will be the first official January mommy, too. I'm pretty sure it won't be me, though! Smile

I hope you get your natural VBAC Nathalie Smile I'm very thankful that I got to experience a natural birth (well mostly natural other than the meds required for my HELLP syndrome)

Good Luck with your natural vbac! I am scheduled for a section on January 11th, I am sure there will be alot more new Mommies between now and then. I am still working and have a big project that I have to complete next week so I am hoping and praying that baby stays put for a bit longer! Good Luck all you ladies that have your deliveries coming up!

I am still 3 weeks out and don't think there is much chance of going into labor too much before then. Which is good for me....I've been counting on that prep time!

Well, it looks like I will be the first January 2012 Mommy to reach her due date. My due date is tomorrow and there is absolutely nothing going on. Even the AF type cramps and lower back pain have gone away. I went out walking today, have been doing housework, drinking my raspberry tea 4 times a day, sitting on my birth ball every night.... and still nothing.

Lisa & Christina, I'm starting to think that your little ones may be here before mine ! Wink

Oh, I like Lisa's idea! January 3rd it can rain babies! Smile

But, knowing how much you hope for a natural VBAC, I hope things start going for you soon. And you're still team green, right? I'm excited to see who is joining your family!
