    My reason is that DH is away in camp this week and won't be home until Nov.25th (I'm due Dec.5th). Chances are if I were to go into labour this week, he wouldn't make it out in time since he's a 3hr drive & 2hr plane ride away......and that's IF I can even reach him since cell reception is practically non-existent up there!! :dohh: It's also my second baby. My first labour was less than 7 hours from start to finish so I'm anticipating a fairly quick one this time around too. As uncomfy as I am, I'm crossing my fingers (and legs) that nothing will happen just yet. :coffee:

    Anyone else? What are your reasons?

    I have been exactly like this until the due date because I've been trying to organise everything and I still needed clothes and to pack my bag and generally exert myself... But now he's late he's just annoying me and I'm ready to have my little boy out haha x

    :hi:
    I hope your OH makes it home in time for your LO to be born, fingers and toes crossed for you :flower:

    Well my reasons are totally different as Im only 28 weeks tomorrow but I have been having feelings that this pregnancy is flying in and I want it to slow down...I keep thinking that I have bonded with this little baby and its all mine for the time being, I get to feel every movement and ailment although some are horrible Im not ready to give them up :haha: I am not ready to hand my precious little bundle to all the visitors in the world, I just want him/her inside me all to myself at the minute :)

    Though wait until Im about 42 weeks and in total agony and wanting this little one out :haha:

    I hope everything goes to plan for you :D

    Just when I feel like I have everything ready I realize I'm NOT ready quite yet! With my second coming at 36 weeks I'm nervous that I'll miss out on Thanksgiving with my family (or Black Friday for that matter! :winkwink:) If all goes well, Black Friday will put me into labor only AFTER I get through all the check out lines :haha:

    I was very happy to stay pregnant when I was. I loved it! Everyone was moaning about wanting their baby out but I was very happy to stay pregnant a while longer. I had convinced myself I was going to go over and need to be induced so in my head I still had plenty of time. Imagine my suprise when I went into labour on my due date!!! I had only been hoovering the stairs the night before and felt completely fine.

    I know I will be more desperate to meet LO with the next baby because I know how amazing it is when they're finally here :)

    Me!!! I was meant to move house on 2nd nov but the sale hasn't gone through yet so I'm still waiting. Once the sale goes through, my friend/landlord wants to decorate and do the bathroom and change one carpet. Then I have to clean the place top to bottom, buy whatevers missing, sort out bills etc and unpack. Then I want a bit of time to myself, making the place feel like mine and enjoying the last few days of rest before I have a baby to look after. Oh and I also have the Christmas stuff to do!!! (have you seen how many days I have left before my due date?)!!!!!!!! I'm panicking!!!

    I could do with baby hanging on in there for at least another week so DH can finish painting the living room, we can tidy up and have everything there in it's place, we can tidy our bedroom, and we can set up somewhere for baby to sleep! Plus, I have thrush and have just got treatment for it today so want that to have time to work! I'm starting to get really uncomfortable though! Baby's 3/5 engaged, I've started to lose my plug and I'm getting tons of BH and irregular painful tightenings! So I'm not sure baby wants to stay put for much longer! She definitely needs to stay put until the weekend though so she's officially full term! :dohh:

    Beca :wave:

    I'm getting kind of picky about which days I go into labor. For instance... tonight doesn't work out for me. Any time between tomorrow morning and Sunday evening is fine, though! And then Monday through Thursday aren't ideal at all, but any time after that is great. :haha:

    I've been getting a lot of contractions this afternoon and very worried that it'll happen tonight. DH will be working with no ride home. :(

    I'm actually wanting a December baby and I feel as if I'm not quite ready yet. I'm trying to get Christmas shopping done because I know once my LO comes, I won't feel like getting out. She can stay in for another 2 weeks :)

    I have 4 days until my job will pay for my 12 weeks maternity leave so gotta wait until atleast then.

    Then after that I'm not too excited about having a Turkey Baby...I want my mommy's turkey, cornbread dressing, mashed potatoes, mac n cheese, and chocolate cake :toothpick:

    If I could pencil her in anytime after that then that would be awesome but who am I kidding...if she's any daughter of mine she'll make her appearance at the most inconvenient time possible and we'll be just as excited :winkwink:

    I'm not fussed either way. He'll be born on his birthday, and we'll be 100% delighted to meet him. Until then, he's more than welcome to stay cuddled up and safe in my belly.

    Me! It's most likely our last baby, and I enjoy pregnancy despite all the pains. Plus I'm waiting for my parents to get here and for my midwife to be on call. Oh and did I mention I'm scared of labour now? Lol.

    I am going to miss being pregnant! I love having my baby safe and close to me. I'm so excited to meet him, but I have a fear of time going by too fast and I know once he is out, time accelerates.

    I've also had an easy and enjoyable pregnancy. I'm getting tired and very sore, but would go through this every day for the rest of my life if it meant my baby being safe and healthy.

    I also can't wait to meet him and feel his skin and touch his toes.

    Wow, yeah that's almost exactly the same situation. So have you made up a plan B just in case baby arrives before DH gets home? I'll have my mum come up to meet me at the hospital after getting my sister in law to drive me there but I'll be soooo upset if DH misses everything. :cry:

    I'm trying to cram in all my Christmas shopping beforehand too!! I think I can actually get it all done by tomorrow though; I've been slowly buying gifts since early October. I basically want nothing left on my "To Do" list in December. Just pure relaxation and baby bliss!!
