Any one left?

Wow - after seeing all of the birth announcements from this past week, is there anyone left?

I am...... still having contractions daily, but little one hasn't wanted to make an appearance yet. That's ok though. Our goats just had their babies so they have been keeping us very busy Smile I surely thought shoveling out their pens would have induced labour, but nothing...LOL

I'm still here! I haven't been very active in the group, but I've sure loved reading all of the birth stories. Makes me more and more excited for my own. I'm also having contractions everyday, but went to the doctor today and nothing going on down there. Smile I guess he just wants to keep baking for a while!

I'm here and overdue! Got some interesting news at the doctor's today...he said he couldn't get a perfect measurement of the baby's head because of how far down she was, but is estimating her at 9 lbs 10 ozs! OMG! He finally did a check of my cervix, and nothing is going on down there--no thinning and no dilation at all. I've had no contractions whatsoever. He wants to see me back on Friday, and will probably want to induce at that point. I'm getting scared because of the size of this baby!

oh wow!!! Baby could be or couldn't be that big. My Dr says she doesn't put too much into that because Dr's have been known to be off by a couple of lbs...I guess that would put you in the 7 - 11 lbs range Smile

If my baby isn't here by wednesday, we are schedulinga n ultrasound to see if everything is hunky dory in there and if it is Dr wont induce until at least 10 days overdue...Hopefully little one comes before then.

And Jess don't get discouraged with "nothing gone on down there" Dr also says that you can be 4 cm dialated for 2 weeks and nothing, but then go from 0 - 10 in hours....She doesn't like to do checks unless the mom askes for it because it adds to much pressure and stress on the mom..

Well I'm still pregnant and plan to stay that way for a while! I'm 38 weeks today, not having any contractions, and baby's head is not engaged. My daughter was born 8 days after her due date, so I'm not expecting any action any time soon. Smile
