Isn't that what you wanted anyway? Most your posts say you were really hoping to go the full 40 weeks

Its 5 am and I haven't gotten hardly any sleep. My stomach was hurting so bad all night I thought I might pass out. Had the poos and was throwing up...wish all of this would tone down. I am not prepared for baby yet. These contractions are starting to get on my nerve

Hi Ladies!
My sweet boy is here! Carter Spencer was born 3wks early on July 20th, 2013... weighing in at 8lbs even and measuring 20 inches long. During the last week I was pregnant, I had signs of serious pre-E, so Dr decided to induce. That did not progress quickly enough, so we ended up doing an emergency c-section. Everyone is healthy now and fine. Hubby & I are SO in love with our little man <3

My 37 wk appointment was this morning. I got her to check me bc I have been hurting and cramping pretty badly. She said it is bc the baby was transverse and flipped over and was stretching. She checked me and her words were, " very thin, ahh! there's the head, cervix is closed. You are on the fast track now". Is it normal to feel the head before dilating or anything? They never mentioned that with my last two.

37 week appointment today Strep-b Negative! :D . I'm to 144 lbs. I had a very good non-stress test, though my blood pressure is still a little higher than they want. I am currently 1 cm dilated and about 60% effaced! My next appointment is August 12th.



Edit : Also this is what decided what I'm bringing Kaz home in .

My tummy is super sore today! It started getting like this last night. It is how I felt before I had my last one and my dr induced me bc she could tell I was miserable...(crying may have had something to do with it. lol). There are, like, sharp pains every time I try to breath in. She was kicking me so much in my sleep last night that I dreamed she was trying to come through my skin...I could see face, hands, arms,...woke up freaking out. Plus I have a toothache so that is sooo much more fun than I thought I was going to have today...blah :/

37 weeks today, I had my check on monday, I am GBS Negative so i am thrilled about that!!! My back is killing me, still having random BH and feeling so ready to be done! Baby is still active, all is going well just a waiting game now.
I have no clue if I am dilated or effaced since my midwife doesn't check at all until actual labor.
Congrats to the mommas who had their babies, I am super jealous!! I want her out!
To those of you due today and this week, good luck, I hope the babies out VERY soon!

I know ya'll are gonna think I am crazy but I was watching Grey's Anatomy on Netflix and started cramping (menstrual feeling cramps) and automatically thought, "must be about time for my period"......I forgot I was pregnant for a minute!!! I guess it's because I've been feeling pretty good today and not hurting, less movements, got caught up in the show, etc. Is that weird or what? I laughed at myself....but am still having cramps.

So I fucked up my left pinky and ring finger (broke the ring finger) in my car door last night . Don't ask me how the hell I managed that one. But it's totally a joy to have a broken finger while pregnant . At least I've had broken fingers before (I'm so bad at not breaking myself lol) so I know how to type with one. Just extraaaaaaaaaaaaaa slow.



But anyway, Kaz man's doing fine at least.
