Hey ladies. Not long to go now before we meet our precious cargo!



Just wanting to know how everyone's feeling. Have any of you had any labor symptoms?
I've been nesting now for a month and a half, I feel like babies head is literally going to fall out from *ahem...down there*, I have a rather sexy John Wayne walk/swagga going on every morning (NOT) and I'm over peeing every 10 minutes! I'm FINALLY packing my hospital bag tonight (and my husbands). I have a midwife appointment this Friday where I'll get to have one last ultrasound (if I haven't had baby by then) and will get to see how dilated and how effaced I am. Really nervous about having a water birth. This is baby number 3 for me - a boy - and he's wider than my hips! I'm hoping he's not too big. I was told with my first baby, who was 7lbs 3 oz that my pelvic area was too small to push her out, BUT, I refused to have C-Section and pushed her out all the same!
We've reached the full term mark...bring on the babies!

Full term is 40 weeks. 37 weeks is term.

Sorry 'bout it. Babies at 37 weeks are considered 'birth ready'. Sorry I wasn't specific enough! Geez o peas

Due October 7th with my first! Ok so my stupid doctor hasn't even checked my cervix!!!? BTW he really annoys me. Anyways I wake up in the middle of the night probably 6 times for a good 4 minutes of me chugging water & then on & off to the bathroom. Everytime I wake up I feel dreadful lol. I've been painting her room which Im alllllmost done with ! my feet are as fat as sausages. So nervous for delivery day! I have a feeling im going to be as chill as a cucumber or freaking out to the point where im having an anxiety attack haha. Hopefully the first one.

Iam due Oct. 09 too. With my first:D .I will be having a girl im very excited .I have a Dr app. tomorrw there guna check me if im dilating which i doubt it because baby hasn't dropped or can i still dilate even tho she hasn't dropped yet ? I'am kinda nervous because i really don't want a c-section .Do you have any ideas of how i can make her drop ?

Dropping.has nothing to do with having the baby or Dilating.
