I'm 34+1 and ever since my csection got scheduled time has been dragging.
Only 4 weeks and 1 day left to go but it feels like forever away. At the same time, I'd like for it to last a bit longer because I'm getting my tubes tied as this is my fourth baby (4 boys eek lol) and pregnancy and my body do not get along well.
1st pregnancy I had hypertension that turned into pre eclampsia at the end. Big baby 9 lbs 1 oz induction turned emergency csection.
2nd pregnancy (twins) bed rest from 12 weeks until I delivered, threatened pre term labor from 30 weeks, pre E developed at 34 weeks, delivered at 36 weeks due to pre e.
So far this time I've had extremely low iron, my arthritis in my hips is acting up plus SPD, been at the hospital every two weeks since about 26 weeks, Severe back pain made worse by pregnancy from a wreck I had a year ago, and baby is measuring 3 weeks ahead.
I haven't been able to sleep since before I found out I was pregnant.

Hows everyone doing? Any news?
AFM, finally have my appointment later today (excited!), hopefully can find out if Im dilated at all or cervix is still closed & firm.
Have been having period pain, diarrhea and shooting pain in my thighs since last night, maybe a pre-labor sign?

Nothing yet, family is counting down the days I’m trying to convince DH to dtd to see if we can’t kick start anything.

Sounds like promising signs! What happened @ your appointment? My midwife doesn’t do cervical checks so I never know what’s going on down there

Hope sounds promising!!!

I am having no signs...had some AF cramps last night, nothing tonight. DH and DTD tonight and it didn't even given me BH contractions!

I have an appointment tomorrow and as I'm 38 weeks now they will check my cervix if I ask but I'm worried I'll just be disappointed so maybe won't even ask. Maybe if they'd sweep me but they won't before 39 weeks and that's a day before I'm scheduled to have a C-Section anyways.

(C-Section is if I get to 39 weeks as Baby will be too big for my body after that point probably considering my last delivery where DS got stuck for hours).

Well, just got back from my app, cervix still not dilated at all haha
According to the doc, I most likely will go at least 40-41 weeks, oh well

Sander-I asked my doc just now, and she said sex does work for some! so who knows, maybe you will be one of the lucky few

Allie- baby getting stuck sounds really scary! Hopefully you will either go into labor before 29th or go ahead with the C section if she doesnt come before then. Will they do a growth scan tomorrow? How big is the baby at this point? I got a scan today, they said she is 6.7 lbs right now

So fed up! Keep getting contractions for a few hours every night like never that intense but every ten minutes. And almost a week and a half ago when I Went on the monitor for reduced movements i was having loads of tightenings. But still nothing. They just die off. I've never had slow labour before out of four pregnancies and it sucks.

I feel like I'll be reaching my due date and beyond tbh, no mucus plug, no symptoms etc.

Pity party over here haha

Also I've been taking raspberry leaf capsules every day since about 34 weeks, other than that I haven't tried much because I tried everything with my first and he was a week late haha

This is so me!! After hating pregnancy for 25 weeks due to feeling like death; the last trimester hitting has really got to me emotionally. I'm trying to enjoy every second but also willing it away so I can meet my little lady.
