Leinzlove, yay for baby being head down and engaged but at you not progressing.

Aanch, sorry to hear you have a bad cold, if you've tried Sudafed and Tylenol, maybe you need to go to the doctor. I hope you get better soon.

Sas1, things are moving along if you're effacing. Hope things continue to progress for you.

AFM, the nurse practitioner said there is no change in my cervix/dilation. I'm still at 1cm and 50% effaced, I had some bloody discharge last week when my doctor checked but none at all this time, so I'm wondering if she even checked correctly I just don't trust her like I do my doctor... She did confirm what the ultrasound tech told me; my baby is further down, so much that the ultrasound tech was not able to get an accurate measurement of his head so she guessed he's around 7lbs 1oz, but obviously it can't be cause he was around 6.10 lbs at 35 weeks... So if I'm lucky and he gained a full pound he may be around 7.6lbs... I can barely walk now though, or get out of bed for that matter. I think as the days go by it's getting harder... I'm seriously considering making next Friday my last day at work. What do y'all think?

Emmediva: You should definitley make Friday your last day at work. You're going to need your strength.

Won't be long... 50% enfaced is wonderful.

Emmediva - Next Friday is my last day. I plan to sleep as much as possible until the baby comes!!

I've started to get the period-like cramps the last couple of days, which I am guessing means I am getting closer!!

The worst problem I am having is with reflux though. If I lean forward, slouch, belch... anything.... I throw up a little in my mouth. Sorry TMI, but it's just so brutal. Has anyone else experienced anything like this???

yikes- I just laughed so hard about the puking in your mouth comment! I do the same thing lately, but haven't said anything to anybody about it! I am also getting the period cramps on and off for the past few days and I also hope that means things are really getting ready!

emmediva- You should definitely stop working if you can! There is no way I could still be working right now... ugh. This is my third week of disability already and I barely sleep anymore and getting around has become increasingly difficult and painful! You will really enjoy and need the time to rest and relax before baby gets here!

leinz thanks for the encouragement! I hope my baby comes closer to 39 weeks than 40! I am planning on digging out my exercise ball this weekend to start sitting/bouncing on to hopefully help baby along in there. Plus, I imagine it will be a comfortable position for sitting and get me moving a little more!

My sister is flying in from Colorado in about a week, so I am hoping once she gets here the baby will follow. It's so funny because family members (especially my mom) keep bugging me about what my due date is. As if, at every appointment my Dr. has a new weather forecast and can tell me the exact date. I was like okay mom, you have obviously forgotten how this works! Ha! She wants me to tell her a date so she can buy a flight to be here for the birth... AHHH!!! So ridiculous!

LOL - I am glad it's not just me!! Carrots help though. I eat a bowl of raw carrots when I flare up badly. I am trying soda crackers too.

Leinzlove, 50% effaced is good but it's not progressing and I'm huge! I can barely get out of bed now.

Yikesbaby, good that you are starting to get cramping. Things are progressing. Sorry to hear about the reflux.

SAS1, I want to be able to spend as much time as possible with the baby once he's born. My disability insurance only pays 6 weeks and I have a week vacation that I want to use too. My mom is the same way as yours lol, she wants to be here but is 5 hours away. So every time I tell her I am cramping etc she starts packing her bags I keep telling her once I'm cramping regularly and at least 4cm I'll Let her know since they say it takes FTM's longer to have a baby than those that have already had one. So sweet that your sister is flying in to be with you.

AFM, just waiting for things to happen. I'm taking Evening Primrose Oil supplements in hopes that it'll help ripen my cervix, I'm walking more although it's hard. Oh and have any of you started to swell? My legs started swelling this morning and my face is swelling somewhat too.

YikesBaby: I know all about the reflux. It gets so bad I sometimes puke. And the throwing up in my mouth is the worst. It even burns.

Sas1: You never know maybe when your sister arrives you will go into labor. My family is excited and they are asking me everyday about labor symptoms.

Emmediva: 50% enfacement is nice progression. Sometimes it takes days, weeks for the body to prepare. I had nothing with DD and I still had her at 39w2d. You won't have to do that enfacement again, it doesn't disapear just waits for more.

Hello Ladies!!!

Wow!!! Where do I even begin? I am just so head over heels in love with my precious baby girl. Arianna Zenya Goglia was born on January 2nd at 11:01am. She weighed 7lbs13oz and is 20 inches long.

We finally got discharged from the hospital yesterday afternoon. Overall, my c-section went well. Unfortunately, there was still scar tissue left behind from my previous surgery so it took longer than usual to stitch me up. However, it was totally worth it in the end. I didn't feel any pain during the surgery at all. DH was right there with me stroking my hair and talking to me the whole time. It was really cute because we were already talking about where we would like to go on our first vacation with Arianna. At most, I just felt a lot of tugging and pulling. Even the spinal block wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. The doctors and hospital staff were awesome and made the experience very positive for me as I was a bit nervous going in that OR. Before I knew it, I heard the most beautiful cry in the world. Arianna is soo beatiful and is a huge blessing. I can't picture my life without her in it. The utopian joy I feel at this moment is unlike anything I've ever felt in my life.

Thank you so much for the well wishes. I wish the best for all of you too and will continue stalking this forum to give all of you the support you've given me over the past 9 months. You ladies are getting so close. Savor every moment, because before you know it you precious little bundles of joy will be in your arms. I can't wait to hear about all of your birth experiences as well as seeing lots of pics. I will be sure to post more pics of my baby girl as well.

Sending all of you massive

Mimi, congratulations on your new baby!! She's adorable glad you both are ok.

Leinz, wow next Monday eh?! You'll be 39 weeks? When did the doctor tell you today or at your last appointment? I'm wondering what to expect at my 38 week appointment. Do you have your bag and baby's bag packed?
