Quoting Crystal+1:" Doc appt today then back to work. One of the loft beds I was looking at online came back in stock last ... [snip!] ... about a new bed is he's going to need new bedding and a new mattress since he's going from a toddler bed to a twin size bed."


Yay! And maybe designate someone else to buy sheets/comforter?

Quoting Marissa ♥ (40wks):" Agreed. They said my baby would be huge. I'm now 5 days overdue and told them NO inductions i want baby to come on its own. Doctor kept saying well he's already 8 pounds. (this was at 38wks)"


My midwife guessed my baby was 7 pounds minimum at my 36 week checkup, so he's probably 8 pounds by now, I'm 38.5 weeks. I have had my moments where I was like "OMG what if he wont come out..." because I'm planning a home birth, but then I think "no. I pushed out a baby with a head in the 99% 20 minutes after getting an epidural, laying on my back. I can do this." I think I can probably push out a 9 pounder...I'm not sure about bigger than that, I'm only 4 ft 11 after all...But I'm going to sure as hell TRY :)
If you have a big baby and he's not coming out, don't forget to try pushing on your hands and knees. That's what they do when a section isn't an option, get the woman on her hands and knees to open up her pelvis.

Quoting 2happy:" Full moon tonight ladies!"


I was hoping it would have an effect on him coming tonight (I'm 39 weeks tomorrow) but I don't see it happening. I HOPE IT DOES but I'm grouchy so I'm being a pessimist.



Got checked at the doc and I'm about 1.5 cm. Still pretty thick and baby's head is still kind of high. :( Last week I was 1 cm so not much change!




***And my son was born the morning after a full moon and my friend had her son on the same day (hers was 3 weeks early.)

I want to have this baby tonight, lol. I know it probably wont happen, but I want to meet him, I'm anxious!
I had a midwife appt today, she didn't check me but at 34 weeks she did and I was 3 cm 40% effaced, and I checked my own cervix and I think I'm probably a four possibly a five now...Do you ladies know about that purple line that also tells you how dilated you are? Andrew says I'm a five by looking at it!
