Just sitting here, monitoring every cramp, pain, nausea, Stool (TMI), every single thing, and wondering when this baby will decide to make an appearance. I have fianlly decided, that this wait is worse than the TWW. Oh well, i pray i don’t go past my due date, i’ll probably run crazy by then. How are y’all coping?????

@Prettylt: Oh I know the feeling!! I was told I’d more than likely be induced at my 34 week appt at 38 weeks! Nope, they let me go naturally and my son was born at 40+5 and got stuck, was born naturally with forceps, just!
Before you know it your little angel will be here and time will then fly by! my boy is 9 days shy of 4 months!

I’m starting to get pretty antsy waiting and watching and DH is just as bad. If I get a particularly strong BH that takes my breath away or if I gasp in pain when I roll over in bed (I threw my back out 3 months ago and it still bothers me sometimes) then he’ll suddenly be watching me intently and wondering if I’m suddenly in labour. I still have up to 3 weeks because I’m ‘allowed’ to go up to 14 days overdue, but I could also go any time now and I’m extremely aware of that! I’ve just been working on baby prep stuff every day for now and trying to ignore any possible signs until they’re definite signs because I read that it’s better for you mentally to try ignoring the little things. Of course, then I get my daily emails and they’re just full of possible signs of labour now and as I read them I go over whether or not I have them. This morning’s said that nausea was a possible sign and the other night I was up most of the night with nausea and threw up in the morning, then had 2-3 very mildly painful contractions yesterday, but nothing truly productive. We’ll have our babies soon though if not just yet!

@Prettylt: I completely agree with you!! It is hard not to symptom spot as well!! The next two weeks are going to be soooooooooo long. I am excited for this friday at my 39 week appointment because after my cervical check we are going to discuss dates to induce if baby doesnt make his way here first. It will be nice to have a final date in mind even though I am hoping he comes on his own before that!

I agree with you ladies that waiting is hard!!! I went to the doctor today and I left disappointed and wanting more answers. I’m not exactly sure what I was hoping for at my appointment…I guess I just wanted him to tell me I would have this baby any day now (yes I realize this is slightly unrealistic for me to expect but I want ANSWERS darnit…lol).
All he said was that I would have the baby “within the next 3 weeks”. I’m 11 days away from my due date so 3 weeks sounds like an eternity at this point!!! He has never done a cervical check so I have no idea if I’m dialated or anything. I really don’t want to be induced so I’m hoping this baby doesn’t come late!

@Prettylt: Boooo. Waiting stinks. I’m drinking my second cup of red raspberry tea for the day and hoping it’ll actually do something.

I totally agree!
Pregnancy is all about waiting. It starts with the 2WW. Then you have to wait for the first ultrasound, which feels so long. Then the wait to find out the gender (if you do). Then the final 2 weeks (or in my case more) for the baby to arrive. The end of pregnancy is the absolute worst wait.
Of course a month from now we’ll look back and talk about how time is flying. Can’t wait to see your little one! 🙂
