I saw this on some of the previous boards and it was very interesting to see how the ladies were holding up in those last weeks!! I'll start- So today was very hard at work, I have two more days to go before I am officially on materity leave until mid Feb. I have been sleeping for two hours at night and thats it! I am so exhausted and just anxious for her to come. I visit my doc on Thurs and last vist I was 2 cm and 25% thinned. I hope when I see him this week there will be more progress..also it's crazy how my nausea vomiting and heartburn has all returned just like in the first trimester!

I posted this already, but I'm too lazy to retype it and stressed, so here it is now. I've had high blood pressure throughout my pregnancy and no protein for the most part. I went to the triage this morning at 3am and they checked me out because I was having tremors, sweats, and some allergic issues. I didn't notice my weight because I was tired, but it subconsciously registered. Well, I just noticed now that it was like 99.27 kg which is like 118lbs 11oz and last Tuesday, 6 days past, it was only 211lbs. I keep gaining incesantly and when I called the hospital they said to talk to my doctor's on call midwife who basically said don't worry. Like it's just normal! So doctor made it worse by saying I wasn't eating enough when I told her what I ate today, just some noodles and sauce so far, but how can I not be eating enough, but gaining extreme weight, and it's not an issue for some reason???? I luckly have an appointment tomorrow at 2:10pm, but I'm really scared because for a short while at the hospial baby's heart rate was elevated to 170 a lot and then it went to her normal 130-150 so they let me out. I just would love any advice or prayers and pray my doctor doesn't brush it off and either has me monitored or figures something out for us. Little one just started moving thank the Lord so it's more comforting, but I don't know what to do and we have other stress. I lost my doctor's paperwork on Saturday and I can't seem to find it because fixing up the house for baby made it cluttered a lot. Now we have like 7 leaks in our roof, we called our insurance when we got back from the hospital and they said to have someone tarp, so my mom paid $675 dollars, only to have they make it worse when they didn't tarp the entire roof, but instead used small pieces and now the leaks are worse. My computer is a piece of junk and I need it fixed, but the charger I needed to turn it on and save my documents won't be in on time for my warrenty so I may need to use the in store one, which may not cover it all and I'm so stressed. It looks like this may be the end to my water delivery dreams becase my baby comes first and I fear complications so I'm not sure I want to go through with it incase there isn't time to get me out of the tub if it's worse than doctor's know, plus with the weight gain I probably hit the BMI they allow and passed it. Sad

Yes and It was almost 8lbs! I KNOW it's water retention because I have all the symptoms of it! If I touch my skin the marks stay FOREVER lol and I gain 2lbs overnight sometimes, plus my blood pressure is high and I swell. Not any signs of labor yet either so I may be induced if my normal midwife tomorrow says something at my appointment. I gained 7lbs 11oz in like 5 1/2 days. Not even a full week. I noticed you said you're starting to dialate and stuff lots of luck with your litle one!

I think this is a great idea! i've noticed that people are not posting as much lately. I can guess due to being totally fed up of being pregnant as that's how I'm feeling!

I'm not getting much sleep at all now, the trips to the toilet are getting ridiculous now, I may as well sleep in the dam bathroom! and the heartburn is terrible. I had to take 6 gaviscon tablets last night just to keep the acid down,yuk! I've also kicked dh onto the sofa so I can have the whole bed to myself, I think he was secretly glad as I'm keeping him awake getting up to the toilet not to mention burping with heartburn all night,lol 

I'm trying to keep myself busy as these last few weeks are really dragging now :( so I'm going to get my hair cut today, figured I may feel a little better if my hairs a little tidier,lol. I've got a MW app tomorrow, I've hardly seen her this pregnancy, must be due to it being my fifth!

I'm trying to focus on getting everything ready for christmas so I know it's all done before the baby is here, so spent last weekend wrapping up presents at my mums, oh my poor back was killing after wrapping for 6 hours! I'm really hoping he's not late as i do not want to be in hosp over xmas and I know I will have to be in a couple of days due to having gbs in last pregnancy so they monitor the baby a little while afterwards. I'll be so upset if I miss my boys opening their xmas presents on xmas day! anyone else worried about this??

Is anyone planning to try any natural methods to get labour going? I might have a go after next weekend as I'll be 37 weeks (term) then, but to be honest I've tried them all before and none of them worked in fact, my last son was a week late and the only one I tried it with. I ate loads of pineapples, raspberry leaf tea, curries, sex you name it! only thing I was too cautious to try was castor oil as I'd heard you shouldn't do this now as it can cause baby to pass meconium which could be dangerous, don't know how true that is as it was common course years ago for preg ladies to do this to induce labour, the mw's recommended it and my mum did it but I thought it just wasn't worth the risk due to what I'd read.

Well, good luck ladies, I can't wait to hear news of the next dec baby to be born!!

Boy I'll tell you castor oil sucks Envy Horribly horribly sick with contractions and craps...and if your body isn't completely ready you contract for nothing then after everything wears off, you stop. (I know from experience, tried it a few times per obs recommendation...sooo not doing it again). I will say I am with you on the Christmas worries though. I spent this past weekend finishing wrapping up the gifts and I've had the tree up and decorated for about a week now. I am definitely worried about being in the hospital and missing my girls openning everything, especially since dd2 is going to be 18 months so this will be the first time she'll be really excited and in to openning everything.

I have had to nasty heartburn. Baby is sooo extremely low that my entire pelvis hurts and the ob can literally feel were his big noggin is pressing my pubic bones out. Ob is curious if little man is going to break my pubic synthesis like his oldest sister because of how big and low he is. It literally hurts like he!! to walk or sit or roll over in bed at night because it literally feels like my synthesis could break at any moment and a watermelon will fall out from between my legs. I was checked at my appt yesterday and the np believes I am effacing and dilating some due to the nature of my contractions and pain (which has been tremendously worse today) but because his head is so low it is pushing my cervix really far back and she couldn't reach it to tell me exactly what was going on. As I said, today has been not outstanding as I've had tons of contractions and lots of the "v-shock" pains all day. I too am extremely tired and have been waking up every morning for the past 2 weeks with massive headaches. They ended up doing a preeclampsia panel on me yesterday because of the headaches and 5lb weight gain in 2 wks (which 3lbs was in 4 days) all due to water retention and noticeable swelling.

My coursework has been a beast for my master's and aside from my 2 finals I still have a paper and a presentation to get typed up (paper on immunological reactivity to pathogens and presentation on full cellular detail of a specific cancer). I was up til midnight last night just doing a primary literature search to find my 11 peer reviewed journal article sources for my paper. Very much looking forward to no courses this spring as a break to take care of the baby and my 2 dds. Also just found out that dh is being sent to AU on business in March leaving me with a 3-4mo old newborn, a 21mo old and a 5 yr old who's birthday he'll be missing for the second year in a row.

All this to say...I am so ready to be done. Worried

I definately know how you feel about the weight gain and random swells as well as the headaches and crazy heartburn so I'm sorry!!!! Lots of luck and I pray little one comes when you want. I was so lucky that my blood pressure went normal this visit and 3lbs of the 7lbs 11oz I put on in 5 days went away over night so it was insane. I was told to call if I swell more or experience more spots in my vision. 7 days and 3 hours for us. lolz

Wow I have really missed alot lately! Sounds like everyone is about over this, lol. I spent 5 hours painting our staircase yesterday as it has been stripped fit seven years and my hubby couldnt seem to get it on his project list. It has driven me crazy because it is the first thing you see when you walk in the front door. He wasn't thrilled since he would have done it differently (but didn't). I am not dilated but am 50% effaced. I have had terrible groin pains when I turn over in the bed, and about wet my pants every time I get up at night before I can get to the bathroom. I guess this being the 6th baby it is to be expected but I get very frustrated about it. I am not the least prepared for Christmas. Im hoping to get the tree up this weekend!

Awww sounds like everyone is defiantly at that point where all they want is to meet the bubby ,,,, I'm not sure where I'm at while I'm so over the marathon mission to waddle around the house and the 10 minutes it takes me to get up out of a seat lol oh and the fact i end up like a turtle on its back every night in bed when i roll over  I'm still enjoying my night time sleep so not wanting to lose that just yet and i like being able to have my hands free to get stuff done during the day so im hoping i have a bit longer but not to much 39 weeks would be perfect!!

It sounds like allot of us have been hit with pre-eclampsia worries ,,, so sorry itabu to hear about all the probs i really hope that you can get some answers and get taken seriously at your doc appointment , Ive been having pre eclampsia scares to high blood pressure protein etc its scary not knowing whats going on inside your body

anyways good luck ladies cant wait to see all the pics and birth stories :)

I am so estatic today is my last day of work until Feb! It was extremely hard getting out of the bed this morning, because it felt as if my hips were going to break. The baby has def dropped as I feel every single movement and if I drink a sip of anything, Im running to the bathroom 2 minutes later. My hubby and my boys left today to see my MIL (he hasnt seen her in three years) he tried to get me to go, I was like HE^& no I will not travel for 8 hours one week before my due date! So I am staying at my Moms becuase she doesnt want me in the house by myself. So now I am praying baby stays in until hubby makes it back Sunday night. I have a Dr appt today and hopefully everything is OK and he can tell me how my baby weighs. I was talking to him about birth control methods, and I am looking into something called Essure, its a permanent birth control method (sterilization for women) as my and hubby are done in the baby making business. They perform the surgery in your navel right at the doctor office, it all seems very simple. I am not waiting around for hubby to get the V because he will procrastinate and i dont need anymore children. Have you ladies considered birth control options yet?

It had been decided some time ago that this was our last as well and after much...debate...it was made clear that my dh will be the one getting fixed. I figure after 3 kids, he could deal with a little pain in the groin area for a bit too plus it is sooo less invasive than me having to go through anything. 

Itabu, glad to hear the things weren't quite so bad at this last visit. Dr called me this morning and told me that if anything changes before my next appt to immediately give him a call.

This morning I can honestly say I didn't even want to conider getting out of bed...my head hurt, my pelvis hurt, but I was in a comfortable position and it was nice and dark in our room thanks to it being quite overcast and sleeting outside. It was nice as both girls slept in too so that allowed me to stay in bed a bit longer but I still just want to curl up and go back to sleep. That is also one thing that I am still managing and enjoying right now is the fact that I can at least still sleep decently at night without waking up every 2 hrs to nurse.

Hope everyone else is doing well!

Hi Ladies, may I chime in?  I too am feeling pretty sore and tired...though I'm actually sleeping better than ever!  DH has a cold and to keep me healthy has slept on the couch the last two nights and I got my first two full nights of sleep the entire pregnancy (woke up at 6am w/ a bladder ready burst, but I'll take it!).  All along I've been getting up 1-3x/ a night to pee and blaming it on baby, but I really think DH (who snores like a lumberjack) wakes me and I realize I could pee at that time.  I think I'm going to tell him he sounds a bit congested still and see if he offers to sleep on the couch again tonight...........is that wrong??  Devil

I saw my m/w on Monday and am 1cm dialted and 50% effaced.  My second labor was pretty quick, and my m/w thinks I'll go early and fast this time.  I'm excited about this, but don't want to go too fast as this is my first out-of-hospital birth and I want to enjoy all of the stuff the birth center has to offer (like a tub to birth in, movement during labor etc.)

Hope everyone else is well!

Hey girls!!

Awww, everyone sounds so over this pregnancy thing, can I say, I know just how you all feel!! We're all nearly there though, thank goodness!!!

I am getting lots of BH, V-shocks, pelvic pain, INSANE tiredness, ready for baby to come out!!!!! But I woke up today with a huge coldsore - on my chin of all places(!) so thinking it might be best if it goes away first otherwise our first pics with bub are going to be pretty scary!!Happy Wink Plus I want to be able to welcome him with lots of kisses, but NOT going to risk giving a newborn the lovely herpes virus!!! Really adds to the SO NOT glowing look I have at the mo!! M/W appointment in an hour, hoping she might have a look and see if anything is happening.

Had a really busy day on Sat, then woke up in the middle of the night with a REAL contraction, had about 3 more over about an hour, was just thinking about waking up hubby, when they abbruptly stopped again, and nothing sinceDoh!. 3 weeks sounds like SOOOOOOO long right now!!!

Hang in there girls, and keep healthy, cant wait to start hearing some more birth stories on our Dec board!!!
