Pregnancy Pregnancy

i can't believe....(for ladies who had babies at 40w or shy of 40w) and whine

I am still so mega-pregnant tonight. I am 40w exactly and I had DS1 at 40w exactly.


Please, tell me I won't be pregnant forever. :'(

and for the ladies who had babies a day or two shy of 40w or right after turning 40w did your second one come near then also? I feel like an oompa loompa and my bump is shaped like an egg. I feel strethed to my limits, my back hurts, my feet hurt, my nearing four year old screaming makes me want to pull out my hair and i have no place to put my food that i want to eat but i have no desire to eat. 

Holy crap. I am so pregnant.

I know this baby will come when he is ready, and when it is the perfect time and I should cherish these moments but I am seriously. so. over. it. I want to see my feet and not have to manuever in a weird position to wipe my ass.

I have never been induced. By law in New Mexico my midwife has to transfer me to OB care at 42w and I have to be induced. So, if I go to next Tuesday her and I have to start talking about naturally inducing me which kinda freaks me out.



Quoting Devious103102:

DD1-40w 3d (induced at 40w 2d, if I hadn't induced we're sure she would've hung around till 42wks).

DD2-42wks

DD3-39w 2d (I had pre-e and went into labor on my own and gave birth 4hrs before I was due to be induced).

DD4-40w 1d

Current pregnancy-really hoping I can make it past 40w =0)

This is my first baby so I'm hoping he comes out all correct and what not lol I hope you pop soon we look just about the same when I stand up lol


Quoting butterflyk1ssez:


this is mine as of Tuesday on 40w.


Minbe also sticks his butt out mega big time! He is in the perfect birthing position and hopefully he doesn't flip posterior on me when in labor! My first birth was a posterior baby and OH MY GOD. I don't think I can do it again.

Ahhhhhh I hope I don't go too much further because my midwife has to transfer my care to an OB once at 42w so I can be induced. I am terrified of going past 41w just because of this.

My second was born at 41 weeks 1 day. The other 2 didn't go past 39 weeks. I have a feeling this one is going to stick around well past his/her due date. I am due in 3 weeks.

Are you short?! I am 5'1 (and about 155 lbs right now) and there isn't many places for baby to go on me except out!

I wish I wasn't with my first, would've avoided lots of issues, but I was only 17 and didn't know better so when my OB offered I said "sure". I haven't been induced since, all of my labors started on their own (DD2 I contracted at home for 20hrs but they were sporatic so I went in and she broke my water, my daughter was born 6hrs later).

My last was 42 weeks, and I understand your feelings exactly! I hope that baby comes soon so you can relax. Just remember at this point, it's literally second to second!

My only one that came after her estimated due date was my third. My first two came before there estimated due date. Nine days and four weeks before the estimated due date.

I was exactly 40 weeks with my oldest, but then my 2nd was 42 weeks, and then 3rd at 40 weeks. I know that feeling ;)

It's so insane how day by day it is at this point. I can hardly plan dinner in fear of being in labor at the time of dinnertime. My near four year old and husband may be eating pizza when I go into labor! haha
