Re: Who is STILL pregnant!?

39 weeks and 2 days here. Midwife said baby is not near done 'cooking' at our appointment today and won't make her debut for a long time. She thinks around Christmas

Re: Who is STILL pregnant!?

still preggo here. Jena I think we are having the same pregnancy! It would be really cool if she came tomorrow because everyone in DH's family was born on the 11th of some month--seriously his mom, dad, brother, grandfather, and himself! It would be neat if we carried on the tradition. But I don't think its gonna happen .

Re: Who is STILL pregnant!?

Melanie, I agree! It sounds like we are going through a lot of the same things!

She said that my uterus doesn't have the 'shoebox' look when I lay on my back, my belly skin isn't rosy, it doesn't mottle to the touch, and her heart chambers aren't fully done yet? Some sort of specific sound on the fetoscope she was looking for.
She said most of her women go to 41 weeks even with a past history of earlier deliveries...I had Eden at 38w 2d so I thought I would have this little one by now. Now she is saying I might go to at least 42 weeks. *sigh*

Re: Who is STILL pregnant!?

that is interesting to hear, b/c I noticed my belly skin is pink and definitely mottles to the touch. Weird. But, I don't know that it will make any difference with how soon I go into labor. My mw doesn't say anything about when she thinks the baby will come. She does base it more on my previous history of going past the due date each time. But every baby is difference of course!

Re: Who is STILL pregnant!?

What is mottles to the touch mean?

Re: Who is STILL pregnant!?

when you touch/press lightly on the skin, it changes color/your fingerprints remain there for a second or two. Like if it's pink and you press, it turns lighter then fades back.
