Will it be today?!

I am 39 weeks today! I have thought this entire pregnancy I would go early and honestly didn't expect to make it to 39 weeks. But here I am Smile
So, when I went into labor with DS, DH knew I was in labor before I did. He came home early from work because he just felt like it was going to happen even though I told him on the phone I was fine and not in labor, and by the time he got home I was having regular contractions. Well, this morning he called from work to see if anything was happening. Apparently I was grunting/groaning in my sleep this a.m., which I never do. And actually, I have felt funny all morning. Hmmm. Could this be another DH premonition? Biggrin No significant contractions beyond the norm this a.m., but definitely feeling some pressure and just generally...funny.

Well, not looking like today, but possibly tonight or tomorrow. Tomorrow would be great because I'll be right next door to the hospital at my MW appointment at 1 anyway, so that would be convenient! I went to my prenatal yoga class tonight and all the other preggo ladies and the teacher were like "oh, you have the labor aura, it's going to be tonight or tomorrow!" So we'll see...

Slept like crap last night, I woke up off and on all night long with irregular contractions. I kept hoping they'd become regular, but they didn't, and since I got up this a.m. I've only had a few random fairly weak ones. Sigh. Well, probably in the next couple of days...still holding out some hope for today. I had no idea I would have DS in the morning the day he was born, so it could happen. I didn't start having contractions until around 2 or 3 p.m. with DS, so maybe it could still happen today Smile I'm going to go scrub the floor and see if I can get anything going.

Aww, bummer! You totally discribed my night the last few nights, sooooo annoying! I had my membranes swept yesterday and I was feeling really good contractions, but they fizzled out Sad With both my other kiddos I has a baby a few hours after the sweep, guess not this time.... I did loose my MP this morning so I know it isn't far off. I just wish we could get this show on the road already!!! I am stealing your idea I am scrubbing floors too. Here is to hoping we both get a baby real soon!!

Ooh, Carissa I think you are closer than I am, I bet you go first. No membrane sweep for me yet, but probably won't do that until my due date if I make it that long. Had a MW appt today and STILL about 1 cm, 50%. Oh well. I think I was the same with DS up until the day I went into labor.

Stiiiiiilll pregnant! And I feel even less like I might go into labor at any moment than I did a few days ago. I may make it to my due date on Tuesday after all.
