I totally understand how you feel!! My 1st was 38 weeks 1 day and my 2nd was 39 weeks 3 days. I was so miserable, lol!! I keep wondering if I'll go even longer this time!

I just resigned myself to the fact that I was going to be the first woman to be pregnant for forever. That evening, my water started leaking.

My last 2 were 35 and 36wks. They were 2 sets of twins, but still. I'm now 37wks and going strong. I feel like I should have popped already! LOL. However, I will say, I don't really want this baby to come till I'm at least 38. I don't want a baby that needs any NICU time or extra care either. So, it's a catch 22. But, after next Monday...this baby better make his entrance!!

I hear ya!! Nicu babies are stressful! I know they come when they are ready but goodness, I'm ready to meet her! Lol. And I'm ready for my husband to be home to help!
I'll be thinking about you come Monday and watching for an update! Lol.

It is stressful. I learned with my last set of twins that you can't predict if they will need NICU time. Just because most babies born at that gestation don't doesn't mean yours won't. My 35wk twins didn't need any. We assumed my 36wker's wouldn't either because most twins don't at 36wks and my 35'ers went home with me. Wrong! One of them needed 11 days because his lungs weren't mature enough. So, while I really do want this baby to come, I'd rather carry him around in my belly than leave him in the NICU. I'm sure you know what I mean. I'd like to think that if he comes after 38wks, he'll be good to go.

Oh and btw, I said I'm 37wks without even thinking. Technically, I'm not 37wks till tomorrow. It's 9pm here.

I wish you good labor vibes and that you won't be available to check on me next Monday.
