Yesterday I was @ Osh Kosh and Carters taking advantage of this ginormous sale they both had going on (more clothes for baby to be). I started feeling faint, dizzy etc (39 wks exact). Bottom line ... I went to l&d to find out I was dehydrated, was feeling affects of pregnancy related anemia (knew that already) and I was 3.5 cms dilated. They sent me home to walk (not a surprise). Whats trippin me out is that here it is after 3am and she still isnt coming. I know this ish happens all the time to moms, but why me? Lol. Drs were saying before Id be lucky if I became 32 wks preg with her (threatened pre term, was on progesteren, short cervix, got steroid shots w/ a 24 hr hospitlaization). Help!! I wanna have this baby! Im 39 wks and 1 day today!

ETA: Here is a link to the post with pics!

it will happen!!  one thing I noticed with all my kids, the harder I tried to get them out, the less it happend.  Go, take a bath, relax, have a nice tall glass of ice water, lay on your couch, watch a movie and take a nap.  TAke advantage of some relaxation time, because before you know it, you will not have any time to relax.  And all my kids decided to come on days that I decided to try and relax...

I had to be induced w my 2nd. She's 9 weeks now. But my cervix wouldn't move cooperate. But I stressed hard about the induction and honestly it was a walk in the park.

Baby will come. I would think too much about it. I know easier said then done though.

Let me tell you about my sister (poor sister, she had one h*ll of a pregnancy):  SHe went into preterm labor at 26 weeks.  Was put on full bedrest, preventative antibiotices (she kept getting UTI's), and medications to  keep her uterus calm.  She still had to go into the hospital 5 times and 2 of those times, she had to be transported 2 hours away to a hospital with a level 3 NICU.  When she wasn't in the hospital, she was having weekly appointments to check on the state of her uterus and her baby.  

At 36 weeks, she took herself off her meds because they weren't working anymore.  She was then in prodromal labor (start/stop labor) for TWO WEEKS before her son was born. 

Baby will be come when baby comes.  Take it one day at a time, drink lots of water, and enjoy not having a newborn for another couple days.  Once baby gets her, your whole world will change.
