So I haven't been on BnB for awhile now because I felt like I didn't really fit in anywhere. I was getting tired of gender guessing threads and I felt like I had 'grown out of' the second trimester section. Now that I'm pretty close to 3rd tri I have been stalking this thread and I'm ready to jump back in I love hearing all of the birth stories in here but once again I feel a little out of place.
So I'm looking for some buddies who are at the beginning of the 3rd tri so we can go through the last few weeks together! I'm getting so excited and I would love to chat with some ladies who are at this point as well!!
I have a 4 year old son (5 next month) and I am currently engaged and getting married June 15th!!! We are having a little boy and it is my fiances first baby and he is just over the moon excited I am so so happy!!
At our 20 week anatomy scan they found that baby Jax has an irregular heart beat. Due to his arrhythmia I have been going to the OB once a week and will continue to do so until I give birth.
I had my son at 37 weeks and was in labor for 4 hours so the dr is guessing I will be delivering at the end of July or the beginning of August but we will see I'm pretty nervous because she thinks this labor will go a lot quicker as well! I'm just hoping we make it to the hospital With my son I woke up when my water broke and totally thought I had just wet the bed! Didn't feel any contractions or anything until I was at the hospital! So crazy!
It will be interesting to see how this labor progresses and how similar or different it will be from my last.
Didn't want to read and run, so I thought i'd stop in and say hi! You're getting married a couple days after I did! Congrats on the engagement and the two boys though. I'm actually due August 12th, so a couple days before though judging by your story I doubt I'll go before you
Yeah hehe you never know! I keep telling people what my dr said about going early again this time but just wait, I'll prob end up going late!!! I'm really hoping I don't though because my son starts kindergarten the week after I am due!! I'm hoping to have baby and be SOME WHAT settled before he starts school! I know that's just wishful thinking though!
Your wedding date is the day after my brother & SIL and SIL and her husband got married Good time of year! Hope you're able to get settled with baby before your son starts kindergarten! Sounds like it would be over whelming. Welcoming a new baby while sending your first baby off to school!
I'm due August 17th.
My husband and I got married November 24th (originally due to marry this upcoming May 25th!). Crazy how I'll be newly into 3rd tri on the date we were originally going to get married. This is our first (girl - who is already proving to be stubborn!) & conceived between wedding night & 3 days later.
Obviously as this is my first, no idea what to expect. I'm guessing though that if I go early, it'll be from being induced. Otherwise I'm guessing I'll go late. If I go late, my fingers are crossed for Aug 26th (it's the date of my grandfather's death, so it would be nice to bring new life).
I'm just anxious how our 4 cats are going to do with a new baby. I'm more worried about the 2 very curious boys.
I'd say go with your gut, because chances are you're most likely to know Though, every baby's different. Can't say from personal experience as this is my first, but I have two half-siblings myself and all three of us were born very differently. Both hubby and his younger brother were both 2+ weeks early though so you really never know!
I'm due on August 20, so super close to you! I also felt like I was somewhere in the middle, straddling both 2nd and 3rd tri and love the idea of this thread.
This is my first baby and I'm hoping for a natural birth. My mother had all three of us biological siblings at home with natural births (I'm going with the hospital though -- they're pretty good here about natural births) so I am hoping I can do so too. We were all late -- around 2 weeks. Wonder if I will be too? I'm enjoying reading the birth stories as I'm trying to get a sense of what to expect.
Other things about me: I 'm an American living in Australia. Other than DH and a 21-year old step-daughter, I have no family here. My sister wants to come for the birth but, honestly, I think she'll just stress me out. Wish my mom could make it, but my little brother (adopted from Russia) is fighting cancer so my mom can't leave him.
Once baby is here, we want to spend a few months in Australia and then travel back home for an extended visit through the holidays. I get 6 months maternity leave!
Hey ladies! I'm due 6 days after you Kelsey! Tomorrow ill be in double digits! I'm so excited! I remember that your little baby boy had the heartbeat issue, and wondered if everything was OK... Congrats on your upcoming wedding! That's so exciting!
I'm pregnant with our third ( and last) baby... from the start I've had issues with this pregnancy, bleeding and cramping, and the last 4 1/2 weeks I've been cramping everyday, along with contractions, so I've been under close watch this time....
I hope y'all don't mind me joining! My first is 4 1/2 and she was born 38+3 and my second was born 37+6, hoping this last little guy will come a couple weeks early also!
August 17th here :-) I've been wondering where you went kelsey. Glad to hear everything is going good. I back off a little bit cause I was feeling the same way as you in 2nd tri but here we are now I'm finally in the 3rd and you are right behind me lol not to much longer now :-)
