Almost there guys :) Chels :3 Florida 2017 posts

Any day now. At the same time I thought I'd be a mama who would want to rush things but I'm completely content. I'm uncomfortable but I don't want to rush things. Sometimes I wonder if wanting it so bad tenses women up, and that's why it takes so long. I figure I'll be uncomfortable no matter what. She's very active today. I'm on a pain med atm. And she's still just bouncing off the walls. Baring down, I'm losing the first start of my plug. Or at least it's loosening and causing discharge. I'm cramping especially at night. And I just feel like it could be any day. Most of the Feb mama's I was talking to went WAY back in January. Definitely can't wait for my turn. I'm so calm about everything. I figured I'd be at least a little nervous. But honestly just so happy I've made it this far. And to all the mama's that answered my questions throughout this pregnancy. And just talked to me. And helped me through things from issues with my SO to wondering if I should go to L&D, to should I feel guilty about this or that. You're all so awesome :) I can't wait to meet my baby girl. and post pictures. I want to show her off so bad I can taste it! :wink: Good luck to all the other Feb-Mar. mama's :)

You don't have much longer to go. I feel like I got hit by a train last night and sleep didn't really happen. Little man was really active friday and saturday and yesterday I felt him but he hasn't been moving much at all.

I know the hit by a train feeling I was sore from head to toe the other morning. I had been contracting all night. My little girls never really still. If she is I shift and it's like giving her a coffee lol! You're almost there as well. I can't wait. I'm definitely ready but at the same time the realist in me has me really calm. It's such a strange mix of emotion. The vicodine doesn't help that makes me feel weird and sick to my stomach I can't wait till the antibiotics take effect.



How are you feeling otherwise ?!

When is your next appointment?
For being due in 2 wks not bad I suppose. I just feel like a blimp, hard to get around. Lol my baby shower was last Saturday and I'm very grateful that someone from SOs work took the time to do all that because we weren't going to have one but omg it took 10x more out of me than my 3yr old does.

I bet. I'm terribly anti-social I have my one good friend my SO and then the people I talk to. And no family. So I didn't really have one either. My one sister did take me out in the beginning and loaded me up with baby clothes. I was very grateful as well. :) Glad you had a baby shower.



My next apt. is Thurs. And I'm definitely sure I've had to have made some progress if not. I'll still have over another week till my EDD on record. I never changed my tickers because it happened too late for me to be convinced. But she changed it to the 16th at like 33 weeks. A weeks difference didn't matter to me. I'm still 38 weeks :P

I go today, I've been stuck at 1cm and fully effaced for about a month now and I doubt its changed. I think I'm just one of those spontaneous labor people haha.

You're still early. I went from 0 dilated - 0 effaced to 1 cm -50% effaced in a week. Do squats I wasn't even doing them for that. They make my hips feel better. Like kneeling squats on your hands and knees. Feels good on the groin. :P

I pretty much live on my exercise ball just because it takes all the pressure off my hips and back. With my first kiddo I went in for an appointment and wasn't dilated at all...then went into labor that night. He came a week early.

I get to be lazy for a few days, DS is spending time with Nana and Papa...his last "only grandchild" time with them lol. Plus they are the only people we really have to watch him when I go into labor and they are 3hrs away so we haven't figured that one out exactly yet.

His ex's idea because she wasn't happy he was having a kid with someone else in the beginning it was "I don't want him around her while she's pregnant when she gets closer to his EDD I'll take him full time" That still hadn't happened I finally told my SO I was like I'm losing my mucus plug contracting and getting too close to have him here at night I will not wait for her to come get him on her time while I'll sit here in labor. Sorry. I can still keep up with him believe it or not, it was nights I was worried about.
