Hey Ladies!!!

Congrats to Ladybug and Cali on your new arrivals!!!

Ladysg - Any updates yet?

AFM - I will be 38 weeks this thursday and have an appointment on wednesday. This will be the first time they will be checking me and I'm hoping for something to be changing down there. Baby is already starting to drop and feeling a lot of pressure. Braxton Hicks have been happening a lot and get very strong sometimes. Discharge has definitely increased, but don't think i'm loosing any of my plug yet. Sleeping is getting to be impossible. My hip and back pain has gotten so bad, I have to keep switching positions. Honestly I just really can't wait to meet her.
We did more on her room this weekend and decided to go and buy a brand new travel system. We had one given to us but it was from a yard sale and wasn't sure how well it could be trusted. So we are definitely ready.

Well anyways, hope everyone is doing well!! Can't wait to see more baby announcements!!!

Hey ladies! Nothing yet....lost a big blob of my mucus plug today. My doula adviced I relax and continue getting some action...so that's what DH and I have been up to *LOL*
I really do hope it happens soon....minor cramping here and there.

This is what my little one looks like. He's a little over 3 weeks old in this picture.

Grats to those who have given birth and can't wait to hear about the healthy babies yet to be born!

Meanwhile I'm busy BF and changing diapers of my little one. I hope he's not the only one I get to have...

Oh ladies....how I hate false labor pain....had my share last night and started getting excited!!!! All died out by the morning...
Gosh I'm so over being pregnant now...

Took castor oil as per my midwife's instructions. It sure gave me the runs and around 7pm only then some pains started. Told my doula and she adviced I rest.
I went to sleep and continued to cramp but got up in the morning and ALL gone!

Congrats to all those who have had their little ones!

Ladysg - I can totally relate. I have been having the exact same thing with the false labour pains. It has been three nights that I go to bed thinking 'this is the night' only to wake up and feeling fine. I have been taking Evening Primrose Oil, sitting on an exercise ball, using a breast pump for nipple stimulation as well as taking lots of walks. Nothing seems to be working. My midwife suggested my DH and I have a lot of sex, but DH seems nervous about it. We have only tried once and now he avoids it when I suggest it. Here's hoping something happens soon because I am getting frustrated.

Hope all is well with the rest of you!

I'm 38+2 today and this last week has been more uncomfortable than the rest of the pregnancy. It's not so bad I want the pregnancy over now, but I'm starting to think of things to do to induce. Having more sex, more nipple stimulation. All followed by more hip and pelvis pain, which I thought were a good thing. Then went to the doc yesterday and wasn't dilated yet (no change from the week before). Bummer.

They took my first via planned C at exactly 39 weeks, so I guess that means this one will hang on until at least that long. Probably longer, I wasn't dilated then either.

I think now that I'm out of work I focus way more on the baby and thus want something to happen more. While I was working I didn't have time to worry about that stuff. Maybe I should telecommute next week to take my mind off of things.

I think I'm also way more active during the day than I was when I was off work. I'm doing laundry, going through boxes, packing bags, going shopping, cleaning, doing crafts, visiting friends, etc. When I was in work I just sat all day most days.

How is everyone else, I need more updates!! Exciting things are happening this month! Please post! (Also, I may be a little bored.)

Congratz to those with babies!! Tell us your labor/birth stories and how are all things baby?

Hi Ladies! My baby boy came a few weeks early and was born March 1, 2015. I had an emergency c-section since he was breech. We are doing good and he is nursing well.

@Wildflower73 Congratulations with the bundle of joy! Baby picked it's birthday so it's all good even though it was a bit early! Snuggle and lots of kisses!

@Txkadams - Well...been at home while waiting for bubs to get here can be a lil nerve wrecking coz all your attention now is on his/her arrival. Big ups to more sex...whoooo DH and I have been trying (at least twice a week - that's the most I can handle now...lol) So far...not sure if it helped...
But you are right...keeping busy does help take your mind off of baby's impending arrival.

AFM - my body is just doing weird things. I'm experiencing secretion of way too much mucus plug (I thought it's just a glob and it's done). Anyways midwife said its "normal". She thought by this weekend I would be holding my bubs...but nothing. I've had false labor about two nights ago....I was so excited...but by the morning they had died down and I was back to normal. A lil frustrating. I have weird cramps...but they never progress to anything and it seriously doesn't help having the baby so low...she is down there, continuing to descend, we are just puzzled why labor doesn't start already. BUT we shall wait and see.

Hey ladies!!!

Congrats to all those having there little one!!!

Ladysg - I am keeping my fingers crossed for you that something happens soon!! I'm sure you are ready.

Txkadams - Yes being home definitely doesn't make it easy to take your mind off of baby. Try to hand in there and hopefully something happens for you as well.

AFM - I have also been having a rough weekend with false labor and just like Ladysg by morning I'm fine. I did loose most of my mucus plug on Thursday or Friday and with how bad the pains were this weekend. I decided to do a self check last night and my cervix is starting to open. I don't have another appointment till Friday, but we'll see if I make it that far. I have been doing a lot more in babies room and can't wait to have it done.

Keep us all updated and for the ones that have had their babies we would love to hear about labor and birth stories.

Hey ladies! I'm proud to announce that my baby girl is here!!! She arrived yesterday morning at 5:59am (via emergency c-section. ..after a good 12 hours of labour and reaching 8cm and then baby and I started complicating).

Her name is Bonolo and she weighed in at 3.92kilos and 56cm tall. Will do a full labour and birth story once we go home.

So sorry to hear about the bed rest TJW. That can be very hard. Though I know some women who embraced it and read books they'd been putting off and learned to knit and watched everything on Netflix, etc. So maybe try to find some sedentary hobbies and jump in.

Why the bed rest?

AFM: I think my cervix is starting to thin. I try to remember to feel it when I'm in the shower just so I can note any changes. It's still closed, but it feel flatter than last week. Next OB appointment is Thurs, so we'll see if she thinks things are moving.

I also finally got my domperidone for helping milk supply. It was much harder to obtain this time than last time. I also ordered some skin-to-skin shirts for the first couple of weeks. And I got a pedicure today ... it's lovely to have pretty toes.

What other preparations do you still have to do?

And for those with babies, how is breast feeding going (if you are breast feeding)? I had a LOT of issues with low supply last time, so I'm trying to be uber prepared this time.
