so i just told my husband before he left for work about what they said today and he was all like so that means you're gonna tear. and i was like no it does not!!! i told him about the next appt and he was like that would suck to have that as a bday. it all depends on how far dialated i am and if i even make it until then. i'm starting to think that maybe i might have to dtd one more time... it got me effaced quite a bit, so maybe next time around it will start to dialate me?!?!? i guess there's a really bad flu outbreak around here right now, they told me that i can't have any kids under 18 visit me in the hospital so that means my kids can't even come see their little brother until we go home. i also can't more then 2 people in the room at a time during labor and afterwards too. it really sucks, she said it's a statewide ban. if i were you, i'd check to see if that's going on where you're at too. might spoil your plans too...View Thread
lol i just got there when you posted this you would go early!! so not much change, still a fingertip dialated but i'm 70% effaced now!!! they said they would strip my membranes but i wasn't dialated enough, you have to be 2-3 centimeters. for me it's my sciatic nerve, never really had it diagnosed but i've talked to people about it and they agree with me. my next appt is a day early on valentines day before i go to work. sooo tired, i might try to take a nap. it's a little late to do that but oh well, my oldest fell asleep why can't i do it too?!?

yes i do. i'm gonna have them check me again, i keep hoping it changes!! that's more then what i can say. man my hip hurts like crazy!! i hope it doesn't hurt while i'm in labor, if it does my no meds resolve is going out the window!!View Thread
ia. well i'm trying to. they seem to be ok with it. i asked them if i could work up until because we need they money. i might as well work, doesn't do me any good sitting on my butt at home when i could be making money at work.View Thread
nope. yesterday he was headbutting my cervix and bladder and it hurt. we dtd yesterday morning and i had a little bit of bright pink when i wiped so i was excited that maybe yesterday would be the day but nope. oh well. i'm 39 weeks today! so we must be exactly 2 weeks apart. my tummy hurts... i wish i knew when he was gonna be here.View Thread
the only reason why they do that is because you never know for sure when conception occurred and they want baby to be healthy. 115 would be nice!!! you're about at my prepreggo weight plus 5lbs so consider yourself lucky!! i'm 153 right now if i remember correctly. i would love to consider myself all baby because that's what my husband says but i doubt it. i'll say i'm mostly baby. you'll probably be one of the lucky ones and have your baby in like a week. i've been watching one born every minute on youtube and it's making me cry!! i know it's silly but it's making me happy seeing other people see their baby for the first time. it's an awesome feeling based on the pain you went to go through to get them here!!View Thread
they won't induce unless i'm a week over or unless medically necessary. so either way i'm gonna say it's a race!! i've gained about 18lbs so far with this pregnancy... that's a lot for me because with my first two i'd only gained 10lbs for each pregnancy. 8 days after tonight... woohoo. i'm just gonna expect to go a week over and hope that he proves me wrong.View Thread
sounds like restless leg syndrome, you should probably talk to your healthcare provider about this. they might be able prescribe or give you advice on something you could do to be able to fall asleep.View Thread
