I've been getting that. I know CM DOES increase. I have had the same fear though.

I've been doing the test where I pee all the way and lay down and if it 'leaks' when you stand up. That hasn't happened to me yet.

Allie - itís a bit better after the chiropractor this morning, but every step still hurts and it scares me a bit for next week when I will be with DS by myself again during the day. Any sudden movement makes it worse.
I just donít know if I will be physically able to safely take care of him. He can be so determined and run off if he wants to so I think we will mostly be home and the backyard. While I want to be more prepared for baby and be pregnant a bit longer itís also going to be harder everyday.
I hope Baby comes on June 8th then!!! And that the chiro work keeps some pain at bay....sounds rough!!!

Stressed beyond belief.
We were "supposed" to be out of our house by yesterday, well it rained all week and obviously we can't move stuff in the rain so we weren't able to do much at all.
So we still have some stuff at that house that we need to get but cant get it cause its still raining.

Dummy me did way to much. Cue SEVERE pain, lots of mucus plug lost, some leakage which theyre not worried about because I have excess fluid, and contractions. Baby is still moving fine but I am hurting so bad.

Awww I demand you lay down ASAP and get a good night's sleep! Take a Unisom and lock the door and tell them you'll be out in 12 hours!!

Allie it's only if my waters break that there is a risk. My waters went first with my first but not til 40 +5 and my second was 40+4 so I'm not expecting this one to be early so will push to wait til 38 weeks before we do anything but if he is still flipping around then they will likely admit me. The options then from what I've read is a stabilising induction which I 'll push for or a section.

Yesterday he started off transvers then oblique with head to right. Then head to left. I 've put my support belt on fairly tight to see if I can restrict him to staying put.

I just hate all this waiting. I'm constantly trying to work out where he is lying. Not easy when the front of my bump is so solid most of the time because of the placenta.


So excited that we will be getting lots of babies soon. Some of you are so close now. I feel like I have ages left.

Sorry to hear all the epp. I hope you can get the chance to rest more today.

Allie, that BP is in the normal range for me!

Sorry eppgirl, hope things calm down for you soon!

Topaz I can imagine how that would be stressful!! You still have time though, and baby is halfway to head down. I read that 97% of babies are head down by 37 (?) weeks, so you have a high likelihood or your LO cooperating eventually!

AFM, 38 weeks today - feel like I’m in the TWW all over again (unless he decides to be late!!)

I don't know if I'm getting ill with something or labour is starting! It's 2am I'm time and I've been woken up constantly with the worst indigestion.
I've also had diarrhea tonight (sorry ladies). My dd just woke up in the night so I took her to the loo and whilst she was having a wee I had stomach cramps like I was going to have bad diarrhea again but when I sat on the loo nothing at all happened. I can feel it coming on again right now, so I'll head back to the loo in a moment just incase. I remember the cramps before but not how it all started in the beginning.

I might have also picked up a bug as I feel sick as well and my stomachs gurgling. I suddenly feel really nervous like I'm not ready for the baby yet! So hopefully he hangs on another couple of weeks.

Sorry epp, cant imagine having to deal with all that right now. Please try to rest as much as possible.

Sander the tww is a perfect description....though technically im in a 4 week wait! Lol its torture!

Topaz i hope he settles head down soon for you!

Pg oh i hope its just a random bout of upset tummy and not labor just yet or a tummy bug. I have noticed though the last two days Ive been getting a constant urge to go to the bathroom, but when I sit on the toilet, nothing. I do manage to go a couple times a day(sorry tmi) but not nearly as much as it feels like I need to go. Ive read its common as baby settles down lower they can push on your colon and give you that constant feeling of having to go.

Awww PG, I wonder if it's the start?!?! They do say that is a sign!! I know what you mean, i'm antsy but I wonder if I go into labor if I'll be like 'Wait a week!!' haha. I hope you don't have a tummy bug either though as that is no fun. Maybe you're just getting your clear out a few weeks early. I am still in the constipated stages.

Sander, happy 38 weeks, I'll join you tomorrow. Yep the it's the new TWW haha.

Topaz, sounds reasonable you won't have your waters break any time soon. I hope they work with you to avoid you having to get admitted or induced or a C-Section. Mostly I hope baby turn in the next week or so for you for your peace of mind!

I hope everyone is doing well. Here, I'm just waiting to see if Baby comes on her own before I have to have a C-Section (or not, still undecided). I keep getting hiccups (fetal hiccups) like 4 times a day and it worries me even though my doctor told me not to worry. Plus I feel like Baby is fighting to get out sometimes, her movements are a bit wacky at times, especially before bed. It's like she's knocking on me saying 'Let me out!' Haha. Or like my whole uterus will jerk!

I'm wondering if I should do some more things to get my body ready for labor. Drinking one cup of RLT a day, doing one session on my birth ball. I think I'll ramp things up a bit tomorrow as I'll be 38 weeks. Checked my BP again today and it was fine.

Sorry I’ve been a little MIA ladies. I’m 38.5w now so I guess kinda any day but (TMI) I’ve been having a really bad pregnancy hemorrhoid flare up. I’m terrified of going into labor right now! I can’t even imagine pushing. I swear, I might need the epidural just for this. Ugh. It’s so awful. It’s a little better the last couple days but I’ll talk to my MW about it on Wednesday if it’s still bothering me I guess.
