Who's with me? I'm 36 weeks Friday and Saturday is a full-moon, I'm going to test the whole "more women go into labor when there's a full-moon" theory (after walking 10 miles and doing 5bajillion jumping jacks LOL). I'm sure my hubby will be joining me by praying to God that I pop sooner rather than later....

Get the already pealed and cored pineapple because they're diffucult and very juicy and you could hurt yourself doing it. and they can't be on the shelf already pealed and cut in the fresh fruit section for more than 2 days

Heya all...just letting you know that my little girl has arrived 10 days early and was born on the 15th April,2011. After trying to have a natural birth and not coping with the pain, I insisted on a c-section (had one previously with my son) and it was a good thing I did - according to my surgeon, the c-section scar on my uterus was pretty close to rupturing (she could see the baby's head THROUGH the scar!). So, all is good and after 5 days in hospital we are now home. She was 3.480kg and 47cm long (or 7 lb 10.75 oz 18.5 inch)

Wow Leah, I hope that everything is ok. I couldn't imagine what that must have been like. I went to L&D last night with contractions, but they weren't strong enough for them to keep me. I am still waiting for them to get worse in order to go back in, I would love to have this baby by the end of the weekend. Good Luck Mommas :)

Danielle keep us updated! I went to L&D last night because I had a fever of 100.1, turns out my thermometer was off and it was really 101.5--they were really really worried because my little mans heartbeat was up to 213, but after tons of fluids and antibiotics it went down to 146. Means I get to wait another week for this little guy to get here....

Congratulations Colleen. I hope that you had a wonerful delivery.

I saw the dr today, and am 2 cms, effaced, shortened and he could feel the baby's head. Stripped my membrane, and said that hopefully this means by the end of the weekend we will have a baby :) and finally be able to stop calling it an "It".

Nothing here, not even any talks of induction. I'm getting really discouraged :(

My mom has bet me a case of soda that he gets here Sunday, my husband thinks he'll get here in 6 days (his moms birthday) so we'll see.

Still waiting here Danielle. I am 39 wks and 4 days. Officially more pregnant now then I have ever been, my son was born at 39wks exactly. My dr told me that this little bundle is going to be between 8.5 and 9 lbs. I am hoping that they come by the end of the weekend, but who knows.

39 weeks today! and still no baby! im still 2cm dilated and still 70% thinned out. i had my membranes stripped tuesday in hopes that it would start labor but nothing. my little guy just does not want to come out! i had an ultrasound today and he estimated to be 7lbs 9oz i still have a week till my due date and im scheduled to be induced the 18th so he has some time to grow still! any luck for you ladies?

No baby here yet either, I've taken to walking until my sciatic nerve makes it nearly impossible! Also went out and bought a yoga ball to bounce on, have been doing squats more and more, walking up the stairs two at a time, and I think I've had one uncomfortable contraction this whole time.

My little peanut is stubborn like his mommy..So I bet i've got 2 weeks left!

I was having contractions off an on for 4 days before I gave birth to my son. They were so painful I tried pineapple, sex and rockband. My contractions were 5 minutes apart when I arrived at the hospital. I was only 3 cm dialated but that was the same problem I had with my eldest. My doctor decided it was time for the c-section and I had him that day. I hope you all can remain comfortable til the end of your pregnancy and have healthy babies when they are ready. :D

Just wondering how everyone is doing? Any babies yet? According to my dr yeterday, this baby will be in residence for the next week or so. Looks like it will be a "due date" baby for me...

Oh I know, my son measured a week larger than he was "supposed" to. I am just really impatient, and figure if s/he is already measuring that big then I don't really want to wait another 2 full weeks for them to keep growing.

Well, I went to my dr's appt yesterday and this baby is measuring at 40 wks. Too bad I am only 37 and 6. Here' hoping that means that s/he wants to come out early. Really have my heart set on Wednesday next week, since I have plans on Tuesday, which means knowing my luck they should make an apperance about an hour or two before I have to be at my show :). Can't wait to hear when all your little ones arrive.

Good News Everyone!! I am 1 1/2 cm dilated, and "very thin and very soft" according to my doctor. She was all "not to get your hopes up, but first time moms usually don't progress from nothing to almost 2 centimeters in less than two weeks unless things are moving along smoothly." She said she's guessing it'll be within two weeks, and that of course it's just a guess and not to hold her to it lol. Trying not to get my hopes up :P

Haha I was listening to 'oldies' on my computer and dancing around my house like a maniac last time I had contractions, I should start that up again. Also been eating fresh raspberries with corn chex (Mmmm corn chex♥) I was given a good website of "pre-labor" symptoms and I've been experiencing some of them, so hopefully I'll have something to update when I get back from the doctor today :D

Lots of OBs don't do a pelvic until the last week. Less chance of introducing bacteria. And really the baby isn't due yet so what will it tell you anyway? As someone else already said, beginning to dilate and efface doesn't mean labour is imminent. Could still be days or weeks.

With my first son my OB did a pelvic the last appointment before I was due and there was NO indication of impending labour. I went into labour that night and had my son the next day. He wanted to book an induction for the next week and I didn't like that idea, so I went shopping...all day...and walked and walked, I also took a long drive (the car seat was very uncomfortable! lol), that did the trick or I would have resorted to sex and raspberry leaf tea!

Danielle, I don't want to throw cold water on you, but I was 3 cm dialated with my son fr 3 weeks and then 4 for a whole other one before I had my son. I truly hope this isn't the case with you, but just wanted to let you know that you might still be in for a wait.

Hoo-buddy I had my hopes up today, not even joking. I felt an actual "contraction". My back started having shooting pains and it radiated over to my belly. I was like "YES!!!!!!" but then it stopped and I haven't felt one in a few hours... Started after I got my preggo butt dancing around my house to Dirty Dancing music so... :D

I totally agree. I am 36 + 4 right now. Makingmy husband take me to the city on Saturday so I can go walking around West Edmonton Mall for a few hours. I did the same thing with my son and went into labor the next day :). Here's hoping that iron strikes twice :)

I'm glad that I'm not the only one wanting this pregnancy thing to be OVER! I was feeling kind of guilty but seriously, I always thought being pregnant was the easiest part of it all!!! My hubby did too, but now he's dealt with a tired, cranky pregnant lady with swollen feet and leg cramps that make it impossible to sleep so he is ready for this to be over (and asking "are you sure we can't adopt our second child" LOL!)

I had never heard of eating pineapple to induce labor, but everything seems legit! The hubby and I are going fruit shopping later LOL! Apparently it has to be fresh though, and I've never peeled a fresh pineapple so that will be interesting!!!

And Saturday is our 'big' day for doing the naughty, we're going to go to dinner and a movie together then come home and try every way possible to get comfy (and we're definitely going to try the spooning position) Although I've heard 'doggy' is the position to beat for inducing labor. We might just have to try both LOL!

OH YEAH! One funny thing I heard is that if you are not dilated at all (aka me :/) going to a playground and swinging will help dilate you faster! Something about having the head of your peanut pressing more dominantly on your cervix will cause it to dilate--so guess who's been to the playground every day this week? LOL!!
