Happy Due Date to ME!

Ok, so the 'happy' part is a bit of a lie. LOL. I honestly didn't think I'd still be pregnant today!

Not much even going on here! I think the BHs I've been having changed a bit yesterday. They use to start as a cramping feeling in my lower tummy and then the whole uterus would tighten. Now they don't start with cramping...and I can almost feel them lower, like in my cervix maybe? I'm not super in tuned with my body so ??? But it are definitely a bit different. Still nothing consistent...so I'm not even calling them contractions. Fun, right?

The wii fit told me I was obese this morning. Way to kick a girl when she's down. Blum 3

You still have the rest of today to go into labor! Sitting on a excercise ball and DTD worked for me! Good luck!

I thought about DTD yesterday but the swelling on the lady bits make that sound less fun. LOL.

Ummm, those are still contractions!! Granted, they may not really be doing anything to dilate you, but they are still preparing for the big event!! I never had anything resembling regular contractions this time until I was actually in active labor, so do not despair. Also, with my first pregnancy I never had a single contraction until 11 hours before my baby was born. Everyone's bodies are so different, so you really can't gage what is going on by contractions or lack there of!!

Anyway, sorry you had to see this day come. I think more babies make it to their dd then not though (statistically speaking??) NOt sure. Anyway, this baby is definitely close to being done baking now, so hopefully they make their appearance VERY soon. I know it's particularly hard in your case because of going for the VBAC. Baby sure is being a stinker by making you wait! Come on baby!!! Oh, and I'm thinking another girl! Smile

Also, just curious, what was your EDD based on? LMP, early U/S?

I am glad you are having some kind of contractions/cramping. That is always positive! I am sorry that baby is taking its sweet time, but you are so close!! And boo to the wii fit!

I was charting when I got pg so my date was based on that. I think the u/s put me at the 14th...but with OPKs and charting, I'm pretty sure I know my dates.

This is my chart:

Mine is based on my chart too! Wink

Actually my OB has mine recorded as 6/24 instead of 6/23 because the first u/s dated me at 6 wks when I was 6 wks 1 day (no biggie, of course) and then the second u/s dated me at 10 wks 3 days when I was 10 wks 1 day. We were JLIH during the cycle and I only recorded my temps, CM and CP for dating purposes. I love having that info to feel my EDD is as accurate as possible. I mean it is an estimate after all...babies come when they come...but I like to have a good base estimate. Smile

Yes, I'm a super nerd too!!!! I love data! The good thing about the u/s saying the 14th is we could maybe buy some time if baby doesn't come before 42 weeks and they try to force me into a c-section. That said, I don't want to be pregnant for 2 more weeks.!!!!!
