I’m not due until the 16th, so I’m feeling good. Definitely hormonal! I don’t have a lot of cramps or BH though. I’ll be getting checked next week to see where I am on dilating and effacement!

December mama here. I’m so excited for the November mamas as it means our time is getting close. Hope everyone has an uneventful L&D.

I’m due the 11th, and I’m so over being pregnant! Baby boy is measuring really big and I’m going to try for a VBAC, not gonna lie, a VBAC with a big baby scares me! Doctor is hoping I go into labor on my own within the next week because ‘baby isn’t getting any smaller.’ Gee, thanks doc! No signs of labor either.

Fall_In_Love22:  I heard walking can help baby get in position and perhaps start labor sooner. I walk 2-3 times a week, and plan to increase that once I hit the 9 month mark.

Fall_In_Love22:  Does your Dear Daughter get the idea that she’s going to be a big sister? I feel like Dear Daughter is maaaaaaybe starting to get it a little bit. She watches the Daniel Tiger episodes where he gets a sister, and she also has a book about becoming a big sister that she loves right now. She was trying to read her books to one of her dolls yesterday like it was her little sister. So cute! I think the reality of having a little sister will be a rough transition for her though…

Due 11/23 and so done already!!!!  I’m barely getting any sleep anymore; between getting up to pee, reflux, and terrible pelvic/hip pain, its just impossible.  We moved into a new house a few weeks ago, and since I KNOW I won’t get everything done before LO is here, I’m trying to prioritize what rooms need to be unpacked.  Kitchen is almost done, and in a moment of nesting panic I cleaned up/unpacked my office and made it into a makeshift nursery, since her actual nursery furniture is all in the garage whiel we finish painting (DH swears up down and sideways he’ll move it all upstairs and put the crib together next week.  We’ll see if that actually happens or not.)

I’m by turns great or awful!! Damn hormones. I get very cranky and snappish and can’t seem to control it.  I feel like my patience has dwindled.  Very fatigued overall and having difficulty sleeping due to the constant need to pee.  But there are only a few weeks left, so I think I’ll make it!  Excited to meet our baby!!  

Good to see you ladies checking in.  I’m glad I’m not the only hormonal one.  I can’t wait for the first delivery update!

candy11:  baby is head down as of now, dd flipped at the last minute which is why I had a c-section. I’ve been walking as much as I can, but between the extremely swollen feet and ungodly crotch pain, I can only last so long! 

Cory_loves_this_girl:  I don’t know if dd understands. We talk about her baby brother coming and how she is going to be a big sister and all that, but I don’t think she gets it. My brother and SIL just had a baby girl in July, and dd adores her baby cousin, she tries reading books and playing with her all the time. Yesterday the baby was over and when she was crying, dd kept trying to soothe her and brought toys over, it was adorable and gave me some hope that she will do ok with a baby in the house.

Some of the November moms-to-be are mom’s already 🙂

I’m at 36 and change, and I’ve also had a lot of hip/back/tailbone pain,  which kind of colors most of my activities. I’ve been doing physical therapy and acupuncture, which helps some, but I usually just feel like an old lady.

It doesn’t really seem real that, within a month,  we’ll have an actual little person to take care of forever. I feel like the movement in my abdomen is a neat party trick, and have a hard time picturing it as a baby. Otherwise, I’ve been trying to focus on relaxation and practicing for our hypnobirthing – which includes me telling people that I don’t want to hear their horror stories. For the most part, I probably feel the way I’m supposed to feel at 9 months pregnant.

I’m 36 weeks and feeling pretty tired and uncomfortable.  I’m scheduled for a RCS on Nov. 23rd. Only 3 more weeks.  Wishing you the best for delivery.  Any day now!
