38 weeks today, Feeling ok...By the end of the day I am quite uncomfortable with minor swelling...was on my feet all day though.
Have been having terrible cramping and irregular contractions every night. Not due until April 25th, so we will see!
No signs of labor starting any time soon. I did lose part of my mucous plug earlier in the week but I haven't been having any contractions. Baby is still high and active. I got checked and my cervix is still in the back and closed tight. I have a feeling I will be here for awhile.
Still pregnant. 38 weeks. Lots of cramping/contractions, feeling a bit off not suppose to have another appt until tomorrow but I think I am going to go into the office here in just a bit and see if they can go ahead and work me in today instead.
Well did manage to get into the docs yesterday. Still just a 1 but have thinned out more. When the nurses saw me walk in they bumped me to the front of the line. They really thought he would check me and send me to L&D but since I was still just a one he sent me home instead, after going over(again) and in very much detail exactly what I am looking for and when to leave for the hospital. They made me an appt for next week but one nurse flat out said (and the others and the doc all implied) that they were not real confident that I was going to make it to that next appt. The first time they took my BP it was way high for me so I ended up having to lay on the table for a little while and then they came and took it again and it was back down to a normal range for me, so a little concern there. Maybe holding my sweet LO before I know it(not to mention before I'm ready, yikes!)
Due date is tomorrow. Baby boy seems quite content to stay where he is. I haven't dropped and have not dilated. No contractions. Nothing. My next appointment is Tuesday and if things aren't progressing the doctor wants to schedule an induction for the week of the 22nd.
I've been losing huge chunks of mucus plug since Monday night, was almost 4cm dilated on Tuesday, having contractions off and on! Hoping she gets here soon!! I've had quite a bit of cramping, and tons of pressure from where she's dropped!
Me! Due 4-23. I have an appt tomorrow. Nothing going on as far as I can tell, except I'm much more uncomfortable the past few days & started to get some swelling. I was excited to make it to 38 weeks without any swelling!
How far along are you?I'll be 39 weeks on Sun.
How are you feeling?I have a bad headache/extremely tired!
Any signs that labor might be starting soon? I've lost part of my mucus plug. Baby is very low, 1+ cm dilated (that was from last Friday though, so could be more now). I feel like he's actually moved up some lately though because I don't have as much pelvic pressure. After Sat. he can come whenever he wants (DH doesn't want to miss the first day of trout haha...very important in Western PA!)
I'm still pregnant. 38+3 days, due 4/22. But I feel late because DS was born at 37 weeks I feel fine but have been struggling with high BP and am on bed rest. I am happy to be not working and my swelling has pretty much gone away! But I am getting bored and missing my son's activities and enjoying the last week or so of him being an only child. Plus I have anxiety issues and worry about my BP and baby's lack of movement (even though he has never moved much). So I'm more then ready for him to be born and there is no indication at all that I am making any progress!! I think he is actually crawling up higher inside of me because I have been getting terrible heartburn!! DH has been joking about shining a light between my legs to attract him to come down!!! Hahahahahahaha!!
