Induction on Wednesday. I may just sleep until then So anxious to meet my sweet boy! Pizza and ice cream today, because all of that stops once baby gets here! My daughter is definitely not complaining about my current ice cream addiction, though.

maria - congratulations! Hope all is well with baby and she can come home right away.

All these quick labour stories are freaking me out. Why do I have to live so far away from civilization??

afm - another check today and cervix still high and closed. poo!!! OB was like "it's not your due date yet so you have lots of time". Um, due date is 3 days away!!! And I really do not want to be here for another 2 weeks. I'm so uncomfortable. We used to make a day of it when I would go into the city for my appointments (it's a long drive for a 2 minute appointment) but I just can not force myself to walk anywhere. I was almost throwing up from the pain...I just feel so heavy in the belly and crotch and my hips feel like they're crumbling. I also keep losing circulation in my legs.

Trying to remember this stuff can happen overnight. My mom told me she was told everything was shut and tight with me and I was born the next day.

I've heard friends of kine say that they were closed but had baby within a day or 2. All pregnancies are different, and anything is possible.

i had no labor signs with DD1 and was 1cm dilated and not effaced or soft at all.
Went into labor and although labor was very long (32 hrs due to her being back to back), still had her all natural at home !
Took me almost a day to go from 1cm to 4cm with bad back labor, hoping this labor all go more smoothly as baby is in perfect position to be born (LOA)
My cervix was 1cm dilated at 38 weeks and soft and 40% effaced, so more progress

I'm trying to remember it can go quickly. I was shut and tight with DS as well and had him about 5 or 6 days later. He was 40+4 so really hoping this little lady doesn't come any later than that.

I got quite a bit of back pain with DS but I don't think it was true back labour. My poor mom said she had back labour with all three of us. Poor woman. And I was the only one she could get an epidural for as the other two came too quick.

lily - I'm glad your baby is in a better position this time.

I was checked at 2.30pm and all was shut tight (not effaced/engaged/dilated at all) and nothing was happening, at 6.40pm my waters broke, contractions started 15mins later and he was here the next day at 6.21am

That makes me feel better. Still not really getting any sign or inkling she's coming but DH feels certain she'll be here by the end of the week. I hope his instincts are right.
