As you probably know from the September group, I'm due around the end of September My due date has fluctuated between September 25-28th based on ultrasounds, although I have a feeling that this baby is going to come a lot sooner. In fact, I'll be surprised if I make it to the end of August. I have polyhydramnios which is making pregnancy miserable for me and is also putting me at high risk of premature labor.

As to your DH I don't think men really ever "get into it" as we do. My DH was very cool and collected at all my previous births. Some women would love to have him as a birthing partner but really he did absolutely NOTHING! He wouldn't even rub my back for me through contractions. The most he did I think was hold my hand during the pushing stage and maybe give me a kiss after the baby was out (I say maybe because I was honestly too overjoyed to pay attention). Frankly I'm a little envious of the ladies who say their man fainted at the birth or was so overwhelmed with emotion that he cried. Bah... I've NEVER seen my DH cry over anything...

I hear ya!! I'm afraid that DH will spend his time in the room with me listening to financial podcasts (which he does normally from the moment he wakes to literally falling asleep on the pillow), which will irritate and aggravate me to no end!

I'm sorry about the extra fluid making life so miserable!!! Hopefully your LO will stay in until 37 weeks and then make the grand appearance to give you relief! Are you carrying high or low? I've been carrying low the entire time so breathing hasn't been too difficult but it gives my LO more room to stretch out and push her buttocks or feet under my right ribs. I've been sore there and tender to touch on my upper abdomen for weeks.

Hey mepride! I'm due sep29 although the dates have fluctuated between ultrasounds so I really don't know. The spinning babies advice is great so thanks for this post. I'll ask about the position at my next appointment and see what to do, although I feel everyone, it's hard to remain on one side for so long.
As for DH, mine keeps looking at financial and task estate news all day but I'm not worried, I've heard midwives also tend to chatter about routine stuff while you're going through this intense experience. So actually I've decided that it's a good thing they all lend an atmosphere of calm and keep things as normal as possible. Hoping that yours meets your expectations and you have a smooth labor :fx:

Thanks!!! I wish for a smooth and speedy labor and delivery too!!!


I'm asking my best friend to make a long playlist of soothing instrumental music for when things get intense as I'm planning to stay home as long as possible during labor. Thankfully the hospital is just 15 minutes away tops. I handle stress best in a quiet environment so I think DH will need earbuds if he plans to listen to his podcasts!

Sounds like a great idea, in fact I might do that too. Also I read a great tip yesterday, when labor starts and you don't need to go to the hospital immediately you can take a shower. It both kills time and keeps you relaxed for later

Growth scan today and he flipped on his own! For once he's actually in the right place! He's apparently sitting really low which explains why trying to get into a sitting position hurts sometimes but I'll take it. 42 more days!

I'm due September 27! My hubby thinks I'll go early, I think baby will take his/her time and come late :-) this is my first, so who knows...

Sleeping is definitely difficult these days. Baby hates when I lay on my right side--kicks like crazy--so I'm confined to my left side as well... Baby is still in a weird position. S/he's head down, butt by my belly button, and legs/arms to the right side. I have no idea if this will impede birth, but at least head is down!

I've been getting painful pressure off and on in my right hip/pelvis... anyone experiencing this? Like sharp, immediate pain, then it goes away. Maybe just baby on the nerve?

Hi ladies! I'm due September 25th but I've gone 2-3 weeks early with all my kids so it's very likely I won't make it that far. (I suspect I'll go a bit early but not as early as I have with the others while DH is convinced I'll go overdue for the first time ever. )

I will say that I am getting VERY ready to be done with this pregnancy. It's been hot here and I'm heat intolerant when not pg so it's extra bad when I am. This baby also likes to shove my diaphragm up into my ribs, where it gets 'stuck' (the only way my chiropractor could describe what happens). I then can't breathe without discomfort, get heartburn from everything including water, and OMG the painful gas bubbles that build up because there's nowhere for them to go. Bubs stubbornly breech until 32 weeks and I'm seeing a chiropractor (who has a specialty in prenatal chiropractic care) to help keep him/her that way for a few more weeks.

But with my history of RMC, it's a miracle I'm this far at all so I'm not complaining...much anyway...
