Anybody else on baby watch?


HI! I'm 39 weeks today and I'm getting increasingly impatient that baby is not showing her face yet.

This is my 4th pregnancy and I think I got complacent that my pregnancies got progressively shorter.

My first was at 41 weeks (17 hours labour, 10cm effaced and yet unplanned C-section).

Second one was 39+4 days (natural VBAC!!! So so so thankful that I didn't have to go through the trauma of another unplanned C-section).

Third one was 39 weeks. Best best best birth ever. VBAC again. No epidural. No tearing. Very quick birth.

I was hoping that my 4th one would be less than 39 weeks but she is my first girl. So maybe she's already doing her own thing. Had my gynaecologist appointment today and everything looks fine. Just no movement on labour front yet. Baby's head is engaged already though.

Anybody in their last stretch??? Need some bump buddies to encourage me on!!!

I convinced myself my third would be early and he wasn't!
I know how you feel.

I'm very conflicted feeling where I would really like to not go overdue I don't feel ready yet to be having this bubs! She'll be our last and I'm trying to make the most of my last pregnancy. I'll be 38 weeks on Monday and by then my birth pool will be here and ready to go so maybe I'll start to get a bit impatient after than, but I was late with our first two so expecting the same again!

I'll join you too! I'm almost 38 weeks, baby #4, first boy! My first baby was 40 weeks exactly, 22 hours of labor, almost 4th degree tear
My second was the best, 11 hours, 2 pushes, 2nd degree tear, 39 weeks.

My 3rd was the worst: 2 days of on and off labor, 40 minutes pushing (I was exhausted), 2nd degree tear, 39 weeks. That being said, even my worst wasn't as bad as some...

So here I am, I've had 2 nights where I thought he was coming and it stopped. I had scary bright red bleeding two nights ago (went to hospital, they didn't know what was the cause, but baby was doing great!)...all to say after that bleed I just want him in my arms! I will get my membranes sweep on Wednesday. That worked with baby #2, hopefully it will again!

Well, nothing is happening. I feel like since I've never had my babies at 38 weeks it's probably not very likely to work.
I was a little crampy and have a little spotting. It worked my last 2 pregnancies at 39 weeks and those time took about 24 hours before it kicked in. So I'm not out, but not crazy hopeful
