How is everyone feeling?

Just wondering how everyone is feeling these days ? Smile

Anyone else dilating yet? I was 1 cm last week but I know that can mean soon or later for Landon to arrive.
At least my body seems to be doing what it should Wink

I have had a little bit of trouble sleeping at night. Took a long nap today so I am sure thats going to make it worse tonight Sad I can't seem to get motivated to finish cleaning;( I am off from work now so I have all day. It's weird I don't take advantage. I do a few things each day but there is no reason not to have it ALL done lol. Oh well maybe tomorrow

I don't get checked for dilation at my OB's office, so I have no idea what I am.. I think I remember them saying I was 1cm when they did my GBS swab 2 weeks ago. But I can say that I am having only a few contractions a day... so I don't think this baby is in a rush. I am ready though, I am very nauseous every night, and nothing seems to be helping. It makes it really hard to eat anything right now. Also I finished work on the 30th and I feel like I haven't gotten anything accomplished since then. It seems like whenever I make any progress on my to do list, something happens that will add three more things to the list.

I haven't been checked by my midwife but judging by what I can feel when I have checked myself i am at least a cm dilated probably more. My hips and pelvis feel like they are going to split in two and at night when I try moving at all I about break out in tears because it hurts so bad. I am so over this hip and pelvis pain and so ready to hold my little man!

I haven't been checked by my OB either, probably because I am scheduled for a section on Wednesday. I finaly started my leave from work today. Feeling ok, just trying to get everything done for baby!

I feel pretty darn uncomfortable! There is absolutely no dilation in my cervix though which makes me think I'm in it for the long haul here. GRRRRR...I'm so ready now. Everything is purchased, washed, and in place and I've rested more than seems right for any human being.

I want this baby now!

I'm very happy that school started again this week so that at least part of my week will move a little more quickly. Otherwise, I feel like I'm just sitting around, very uncomfortable, waiting for this pot to boil.

It's starting to get very uncomfortable sleeping at night. I sleep pretty well, but anytime I turn over in my sleep I feel excruciating pelvic pain.

I feel really uncomfortable, and at night I'm having some trouble breathing, like I'm gulping for air so don't know what that's about. My hips and back are really killing me and walking is awful, i've been having a contration here and there. I haven't been checked probably because I have my csection next Tuesday, but tomorrow I have growth scan and NST to see if this little guy has grown any.

Looks like we all don't have much longer Wink I noticed today he feels a little lower as I move around Smile even when I lay here I get a pin like feeling down under. Strange. I guess he is playing around down there Smile

I'm very uncomfortable. I haven't dilated any but I know he has moved down. I feel like my pelvis is going to break apart and I can barely walk. I still have one more weekend of work and I am in the process of moving! Too much stress.

I am having some hip pain--and trouble sleeping. But all in all **ducking the shoes heading for my head LOL*** I actually feel ok and I don't mind if the little guy wants to wait until he is due...or later to arrive. I finally feel like I am getting things accomplished that I wanted done before his arrival, and my to-do list is shrinking but still quite large!

So I have 6 days to my due date and if he wants to wait until then...or better yet, next weekend or early the week after to arrive, its fine by me! At my last 2 appts--38 & 39 weeks--my ob checked and baby was high and I was only 50% effaced, 1 cm dilated, so I could very well last out anther week. Baby is also oblique--diagonal! So he's not even really head down yet, nor dropping. His head is nestled into my right hip (hip pain!) and his feet are up by my left ribs. And he's likely sunny-side up as well. So he is not even in a good birth position yet. My dr thinks if he moves and actually gets his head into my pelvis and against my cervix, things would move along. We'll see what the little guy decides to do...
