Topic: Getting frustrated

I know I'm not the only one near-due here... who else is getting frustrated?

Had a midwife appointment yesterday, she said she would not be surprised to see me go this weekend.  Of course then I was crampy and back-achy.  Went grocery shopping, and for a walk, cramping stopped but my pelvis is on fire!  Hence the reason it's nearly 4am and I've been up for 2 hours already... insomnia, aches, I'm tired but can't sleep, can't get comfortable, but apparently can't just go into labour either!

ETA:  Midwife stats after being made into a human meat puppet yesterday.  Baby boy is fully engaged.  The widest part of his head is at the narrowest part of my (broken) pelvis, making most positions feel "grind-y".   Also feel like he is going to fall out of my bum at any minute, and coughing or sneezing put a lot of pressure on my perineum.  Cervix, however, is still quite far back, long, thick, but super super soft and squishy, and 1cm.  Basically meaning, with my history, I could have this baby in 3 hours or 3 weeks.

Just needed to whine, sorry!

Re: Getting frustrated

My guess is you'll go with the new moon in 10 days or so, since you didnt go with the harvest moon this week.

Re: Getting frustrated

Yes I know the frustration. Fortunately for me, I'm still sleeping great and I feel great. It's the complete opposite of how I felt with Bronx. I'm just over the waiting. I just want to meet him already! Hope you get some rest. I pumped last night and got 1/2 ounce of colostrum and I bounced on my yoga ball for a while. It didn't do anything except for in the middle of the night when I had to pee it felt like he was going to fall out of my vagina. Maybe that's progress??

Re: Getting frustrated

Coco, I pumped an ounce of colostrum yesterday while hooked up to my pump for about 10 minutes, then Tiny wanted to nurse seeing my boobies were out, so she finished the job for me!  I am SO glad that you are having a great end-of-pregnancy.  I was like that with Moose, where I felt amazing right up to her birth (but not the first 8 months!) and it was SO much easier then this!

K&H, sadly, you may be on to something.  All 3 of my older kids were born 3-8 days after the full moon... but I really do not want to wait till the new moon.  Pardon the TMI, but I am pretty sure my vagina will fall out if he is this low, for that long.  Forgot to add midwife apt stats to the upper, will do it in a minute, but he's fully engaged with the widest part of his head at the narrowest part of my (broken) pelvis already, I'm long, thick but super squishy and 1cm.

babybaby: thank you!  I hope it's not long either.  Selfishly, because I am in pain.  Out of curiosity, I want to meet him, and because Tim is off work now, why waste his parental leave with no baby?  Also, my dad will be here in 10 days, and he'd rather see a baby not a belly smile

Re: Getting frustrated

I remember those last few weeks you were PG with Tiny...you were pretty miserable too and wasn't she a little late?...I am so excited the end is so close and you will be holding your little boy in your arms very soon.

Re: Getting frustrated

Aww, fx for him to show himself sooner rather than later!

Re: Getting frustrated

Thanks OSS, send all those extra "baby now" vibes into the universe for me please!

oldmama, no Tiny was a week and a half early, though yes I was pretty miserable near the end of her pregnancy, it was nothing like this one.

Had some kliller cramps in the middle of the night.  Just need that cervix to move forward and thin out so get this party started... come on little man!!!

I need to whine too...I am right there with you...today marks exactly 40 weeks for me... last night I woke up with what felt like a very strong combo of menstrual cramp/bowel pains and I had about 5 or 6 of them, each lasting about 30 seconds and they were about 20 to 25 min apart... just enough to keep me awake from 3am to about 6am...I also having these weird "shocks" down the inside of my legs too...but now here I sit at 7:30am, and NOTHING is happening. Yesterday I went crazy cleaning the house, doing laundry, grocery shopping and purposefully did not rest any in hopes to get labor started with all the activity... actually all it did was give me a horrible back ache. So far over the past 3 weeks I've tried 3 sessions of acupuncture, and 1 sessions of massage to try and get things moving...I've been drinking raspberry tea and eating pineapple. Last OB appt a week ago my doc said baby's head is very low in my pelvis, and my cervix is still very high, but soft, and about a fingertip dilated.  Guess this baby has her own birthday in mind. Every day seems to last an eternity.  uuuuugh.

Re: Getting frustrated

emlklg444, I feel for you!  I still have 2 weeks till EDD, being on your due date must be even harder!  Aren't the "practise contractions" that keep you up all night but amount to nothing fun?  Every day I wake up in the morning with that pressure where I don't know if I am going to start contracting or sh!t my pants, and by every afternoon its stopped, only to start again in the evening and keep me uncomfortable all night.  Good thing our precious bundles are worth it!!

Re: Getting frustrated

You know what ladies, maybe I am just a masochist but as I sit here with my gorgeous tiny son sleeping on my chest, all the waiting and pain behind me - I am actually a little jealous of you!  I miss the anticipation and excitement of those final days of pregnancy.  I better find me a rich husband so I can just keep on having babies till my tubes dry up! Lol
