so i don't think today is going to be the day, maybe you got your saturdays mixed up and you meant next saturday so i just found out at church tonight that the pastors wife, who was due around the same time as me has had her baby already... i heard and was like congrats and dang, lost another race. how's your cramping? turn into anything?View Thread
the hospital pads are good enough until you go home, i mean you're gonna be really sore down there for a while so it's not really gonna matter what you wear, you'll want ice for sure in the beginning!! i did the whole change thing too and we never used it, just pack some granola bars and snacks that way you don't have to pay anything extra. i have a bunch of outfits for little man, like 4 onesies and like 5 outfits. you can always get out of the tub and go back to the bed for the epidural. make sure that you research about the epidural! so in one of the videos i watched it gave me a website, it's a pretty awesome website : www.babycenter.com i just checked it out last night. have you taken a labor class yet? i did with my first and i don't regret it. didn't with my second but i didn't think i had to since i had already been through it once.View Thread
was gonna ask you lol!! i have some clothes for him, something for me to come home in. some underwear and some nursing bras. i have a charger for my tablet, my phone and my computer, a brush, need to put in some nursing pads. i don't really have to worry about clothes while i'm there because i didn't want to ruin my clothes while i'm there, i'll just be wearing the nursing gown. you should totally try the water birth, i've heard it's easier then laying on a bed, that the contractions aren't as hard. i'm gonna try to see if they can monitor me intermittently so that i can move around during labor. since i don't have to worry about an iv it might be easier. what did you pack?View Thread
watched that one!! i was afraid to click it but it was in the block of videos... it's too early for you! i know that's not what you wanna hear but i've been thinking about it lately and if i do have him tomorrow he will technically only be 35 weeks because of the two weeks from the last period to ovulation day. i'm willing to wait more if it means my lil man will be born healthier!! most of the videos that are on youtube that show natural labor are with water births and my hospital doesn't do them, does yours? i've always wanted one but i'm afraid to ask if i can even labor in the tub. it's in the bathroom and i'm afraid that if this labor is as quick as the last one there's gonna be no time to even get out of the tub and back to the bed. since it's your first, have you made a birth plan or a trip to the hospital to see the maternity ward. i would greatly advise it if you haven't already!! i didn't with my girls and i wish i had, i'm delivering at the same place this time as i did last time so i know where to go. have you packed your hospital bag? i think i have all i need for the trip there and back but as for after we get home i'm not ready yet!!!View Thread
that it's really high up and towards your back i think. because posterior is your back and anterior is the front. tomorrow is another of my days off so it would be pretty awesome!! i've been watching more pregnancy videos i found another group one, there's like 51 videos, some have been deleted but oh well, most of these i haven't seen yet. so funny story, i was showing my husband the positions i was thinking of for labor or i guess for pushing and he was such a buthead. he said it looked more like i was showing positions for porn then labor... i was like :O you did not just say that!!!View Thread
no my appt was at three. i'm just a fingertip dialated and my cervix is thick, that's what they said last time, and it's very posterior too. you're probably right, i wake up every day thinking that's the day and then i get all depressed when it doesn't happen. i don't know why i'm freaking out about it so much, my other two were late so why wouldn't he be late too View Thread
have no idea how much he weighs. it was at 3. no change you'll probably have your baby before i have mine... i had that dream either last night or the night before too. your guess is for tomorrow right? wouldn't that be nice doubt it will happen though. only way will happen is if my water breaks.View Thread
you can do it, just make sure you have something else with you to distract you from the pain, like a computer for facebook or a tablet/book for reading or games. it will stretch don't worry you're lucky you're having a girl, i've heard boys tend to be bigger then girls... needless to say i'm a little scared.View Thread
well technically yes, with the first i didn't have an epidural but i did have three pain shots within a timespan of two days. first one was wonderful, second meh and the third one did work for crap!! that labor i was induced on the second and didn't have her until the fourth of june. the second labor i was induced on the 31st of may and had her on the 1st of june. my second labor literally lasted like 2 hours!! i'll be honest with you, it hurts like heck!! but after you have your baby in your arms, you forget about the pain. i'm a cashier at an airport food court. getting tired of all the stuff going on, we pretty much just got all new management and they keep hiring new people. it does seem like it's going by faster! i can't wait until tomorrow, i'm going to be really sad if i haven't changed at all.
