For some. I was 3cm at 36 weeks and gave birth at 40. It's possible that baby could come early but it's also possible that you'll go overdue.

totally on an emotional roller coaster today...up and down all over the place. i cant wait to get this appointment out of the way. i want to know what the plan is for having this baby cause if they want to induce cause of my test results, im going to start doing everything I can to prepare my body and hope that i go naturally. im gonna be sneaky lol. I hate inductions but they want to plan out my labor so I have enough time for antibiotics. im 100% sure its going to come back possitive, like it did with my other 2.



Ugh and Im stressing about money BAD. we were making awesome money and then all of a sudden, after getting a new house and holiday shopping, I lose kids from my day care. Thats over half my income! plus SO brke some of his equipment and hasnt been able to blow glass, which is a good chunk of cash flow we are missing now! I cant pay my bills AND afford to eat but i need a rof over our heads so I reapplied for Food Stamps and assistance :( SO and I agreed that if approved we will only have it until the re-evaluation period of 6 months hits so that we can catch up on our bills and lives..... Oh lordy im stressed!

You can be dilated for weeks, or you can go from closed to a 10 in a matter of hours.
Hopefully, you don't go into labor anytime soon.

My Dr's say they have had someone as crazy as me in awhile, lol
I just called and begged them to stop my contractions she was laughing, said right before I called she was talking a girl begging to be induced, lol

i mean, i am a bit behind you, but idk. it STILL does not feel real to me that i am pregnant, much less as far along as i am. maybe thats why i am not all into the whole excitement party thing.
with my daughter i wanted her to stay in too, but i wanted to get checked all the time to see if i was making any progress. this time...i could care less :lol:
my doctor always laughs and says i am one of her easiest patients because i never ask questions and never complain...which is weird considering that i was at L&D at least 10 times at this point when i was pregnant with DD...this time..not once...lol
i called L&D once when my bp was high and not coming down and thats it.

Sounds like the girls on baby bump! It's a lot of "what were you doing before you went into labor?" Or "I'm so jealous. I'm going to start taking EPO".

one of the girls just had to have her baby bc of her pre-e, baby is in the NICU, bc she was only 35 weeks....Girls due AFTER her are still posting about hoping it happens soon! like WTF?!

I am 37 weeks and on my way to L&D to have them stop my contractions...

You sound like me! This time, I only went because they forced me to go. The midwife told me today that I can be induced in 3 weeks. I said no thanks and that I'd rather wait. She was all shocked like that's a first.

My doctor won't stop them at this point. Throwing up is the only thing that makes me contract, so I take Zofran to not throw up.

She said they don't usually and most people wouldn't even want them to, but I was insistent. I am nervous that, they will change their minds once I get ther. I want her to stay in as long as possible.

I don't know what I want. Lol! Some days I want it to be over and other days I want her to chill out. My doctors keep telling me that it doesn't matter at this point. Especially since I've already had the steroid shots. At this point I just want to live my life and get back to my regular routine. I've been doing more and I'm not progressing any. I really feel like I could've gone back to work.

if you went into full blown labor now would you still have to have a c-section? sorry if this is a dumb question :oops:
