getting anxious with all these new baby postings!

can't wait for baby to be born! All these adorable babies are making me want to meet mine really bad. I'm almost 38 weeks and have gone early both times before so it really could be any day now. yay!

Re: getting anxious with all these new baby postings!

I hear you! It's so neat to see the babies coming, but it makes me extra anxious to meet my little one. I'm 39 1/2 - 40wks depending on which date I go by, but I usually go over a little so I know another 2wks isn't out of the question and maybe even likely. Although, at my appointment last week baby's head was very low(had been high and floating the week before), and my bh have changed to being more crampy and more frequent. Still, I know that could go on for weeks...

Me, too! I'm 39w4d and I'm just hanging out waiting to have some contractions or something! I would so like to go into labor on my own this time.

Re: getting anxious with all these new baby postings!

I'm getting anxious in a few different ways. I'm definitely excited to meet our little one and can't wait to see what he's like! But I'm also getting nervous about going into labor - it's mostly because I'm a control freak and this is the one thing I really can't control! Wish I could! I'm 37 weeks today. Lots of pressure and BH when I'm tired or if I've been sitting all day. Baby just needs to hang out until the 15th so my mommy can get here!

Re: getting anxious with all these new baby postings!

Me too, but I'm only 35 wks 5 days. I have to go to at least 36 (which is Monday) to deliver at home like I want to. None of mine have made it past 37 weeks yet, so I'm hoping for about that long (or even 38) this time. But all these baby stories are making me ready now!

Re: getting anxious with all these new baby postings!

I agree, except that I"m a little scared of actually having a new baby to take care of plus my 2 big kids! I also want to keep this one baking for as long as possible as both of my others had breathing issues and were born 1 and 2 weeks early... so I'm hoping that if we can keep this baby in longer we might be able to avoid those problems!
It's so hard to wrap my brain around having a new human join our family!!

Re: getting anxious with all these new baby postings!

I am too. My official due date is tomorrow and I all pof my friends that were due after me have all had their little ones! My MIL is heading home today and keeps making me feel like I held him in so she couldn't see him. My mother is coming tomorrow so I have a feeling its going to happen during that 12 hour period w/o coverage for our girls.

Re: getting anxious with all these new baby postings!

I'm also not due until the 30th... but my MW said that if I made it to 36 weeks, I should be in the safe zone, so to speak... which is tomorrow, and there's no sign of him coming before then, as much as I'd like him to!! I think I've literally looked up every method of getting babies "jump-started" to come, but dont' really predict that any will be too exciting... I did convince DH that Eggplant Parmesan was rumored to have the effect of jump-starting labor, and got an Olive Garden lunch out of it yesterday... I don't really believe that it does--but it tasted amazing, so he at least had a non-cranky wife for a couple hours!! I only made it to 35 weeks with DD, so I'm already past that point, which I think is why I am so much more READY with this one!!

Re: getting anxious with all these new baby postings!

I am due in 1 week, 1 day, and I am finally ready! Ifeel just SO tired of all the PG stuff, I want my body back, I want to be able to move freely, I want the pressure GONE... but I love reading all of the birth stories and congrats to all the new moms and babies! I think I may try to go and see DH's cousin today, her baby is just a few weeks old and I haven't got to hold him yet
