Re: How much more...!

I feel like i'm the last here who still hasn't had their baby. My DD is tomorrow, and I'm noticing people not as far along as me have had theirs. For the last day I've been in a pretty rotten mood.

Re: How much more...!

I'm 40 weeks tomorrow. I know how you feel. He's a gigantic baby, and I'm told if I go over my due date, he'll easily be over 10 lbs. I'm having less and less hope over a natural birth.

STILL pregnant & look like I have world's largest baby.

99% of people predicted him to come early, but nope, due date is on Tuesday and he STILL isn't here. People can't believe how big he is. Predicted to be 10+ lbs at this point. I hope I go into labor...

Re: Due in a week and need opinions/advice.

I definitely don't want an induction. I don't think I should get intervention with the chance of a big baby. In my opinion, I don't think people should get intervention like that unless there's an...

Re: And there it went.

I'm 39+1, and started drinking raspberry tea leaf last night. 2 hours later I started getting painful BH contractions that lasted for a few hours. Not sure if it had anything to do with it, but I'm...

Re: Due in a week and need opinions/advice.

I'm leaning more towards waiting. I did read a book by a well-known midwife who said your body knows what it's able to do, and a woman would go into labor earlier if the baby was getting too big.

Due in a week and need opinions/advice.

I don't know what to do. I'm due a week from today, and apparently there hasn't been much progress in the last 2 weeks (1 centimeter dilated, -2 station). I got an ultrasound done, and he's...

Re: New Check In for the Pregnant Girls

I'm getting frustrated. I feel like the majority on this board have had their babies. I haven't been going on nearly as much anymore for this reason. 39 weeks today.

Re: Still Pregnant Whines!

Mine weren't that bad last night. Part of me is happy, but for the most part I'm disappointed since I want to deliver soon. lol

Has anyone experienced this?

I'm 37 weeks this Sunday. For the last 2 weeks or so, I've had this stabbing pain right above my pubic bone. It was the most intense last night. It felt like head butting on nerves, and really low....

Re: Great birth story

That was inspiring, thanks so much for sharing. I'm predicted to have a big baby too, and my goal is natural birth. So many people are doubtful I'll be able to push a big baby out of my tiny body,...

Re: Nasty cramps tonight

When you guys get it, how long does it last for? Mine is for about 2-3 seconds at a time, but really intense and starting to hurt more and more.
