Quoting Freckleface Watermelon:" You going back no matter what on that date? I will be very stressed and sad when I have to go back. I know I will be a huge mess. I don't get much time off. I'm definitely paying for it :/ /:("


Yeah, it's when classes start :( but mines all online so that at least helps.
But if one of my teaching videos are due one of the first few weeks I'll have to pop into work long enough to do all of my assignments & then leave to submit. I'm hoping not!

Classes online or on campus?



And I was thinking you meant work. School is much more "do-able" than working. At least you can bring your work home more often!!

Has anyone been told by their dr or MW that they're not gonna make it to their due date??? I'm extremely nervous right now, I'm only 37 weeks and had my membrane stripped today at my appointment... I feel like it's too early.

I would be too!! Are you scheduling an induction or going over as far as it takes (safely, of course) if baby doesn't come on your due date?

Haha yep, that's how I am! :) I'd LOVE to take 8 weeks... and we talked about it. But my mom & co-worker are covering my room & both of them normally only work 4 days a week but with me being gone have to work 5 & they already threw a fit that I was taking 7:? so that sucks.

Why did they strip your membranes so early?



My dr won't say that but my family sure does. lol

But you get to take her so that helps. You can pop in on her when you can. If you nurse her, will you be able to pop in to do that at times during the day??



I'm paying my sub out of my own pocket so it's a stretch to take 8. :( I'd take 12 if I could.

I also said I would wait for him.



I will consider an induction if my situation is like with my son where my water was leaking and I was at 3 cm. He was ready, just needed that bag to pop :)



With an hour drive and a class full of first graders every day....we're taking it day by day.

I'm not sure, and it all happened so fast. She was checking how dilated I was, and just went ahead and did it. The only major issue I have is that I am my max size. I'm all belly, but I have tons of strech marks. I'll post a picture so you know what I mean. I wanna make it to my due date especially since this is my first.

Baby won't come if it's not ready so no worries <3
