Due March 1st- 39 weeks down 1 to go

Ashlee - posted on 02/23/2010 ( 11 moms have responded )




I know I know pregnancy is 40 weeks and I am ok with that just feeling uncomfortable and since our Ob predicted I'd delivery at 37 weeks I feel as though I am overdue even though I am not. I've been 2 cms for 3 weeks now and am thinning out but nothing starting yet. I said earlier in my pregnancy that since everyone thought I'd go early that she'd be late like her brother- i am starting to think I've jinxed myself- haha. Oh well all in all not going so bad due March 1st so even if she is late it will happen in the next couple of weeks.
How is everyone else feeling?

lol I am in the same exact boat as you because I'm due Feb 27th and everyone, including myself, swore that I was going to deliver way before then and here I am scheduled to be induced this Saturday. What makes it so much worse is the fact that both midwifes that I see swore that I was going to deliver early so I took that to heart and I feel SUPER late even though I"m only a couple of days over but it's ok because as long as I know that baby girl is coming this saturday at the latest I'm fine with that:-)

hi. im due on Thursday 4th of march. till now no signs of early labor at all :( I thought he will come early, but no way, he likes stay inside :) im drinking raspberry tea daily, having pineapple, rocking on birthing ball, but none of these helped me go to labor early. im just tired of sleepless nights, uncomfortable so want him out, hope he wont be overdue..... good luck to all march mummies

I am due on the 9th, but we are having a c section tomorrow. I never thought I'd say this, but I am actually thankful that we are going this direction, because I don't know if I could last another week or two. I can hardly sleep, and when I do it's not for more than a few hours at a time - that's part nerves and part bladder. I'm pooped out and ready to go.

I am due the 6th and it seems like feb. has lasted forever!!!! I was induced 11 days overdue with my second, but I am not going over a week with this one. I wont be able to move.

I'm due Monday and I'm so uncomfortable. I was hoping I would have gone this weekend, I was supposed to go to the dr. on Friday but got bumped due to my dr. leaving to deliver babies. I was hoping to have some progress and maybe get my membranes stripped. Now I have to wait until Tuesday to see what happens.

haha Lacey totally makes sense, my OB asks every time if I want her to do the stretch and sweep, but I say no (except 2 weeks ago, and nothing happened anyway) March 1st is not tht far away and even if she comes late she cant be more than 2 weeks away. SO EXITED!! She dropped almost a month ago so I have been peeing every 3 mins for forever LOL.
Emma is this your 1st? if not your OB might induce you soon, full term is 37 weeks, but every second that they are in there is super beneficial for them more antibodies and weight and what not. In the grand picture of life 1 more month of discomfort is def worth a long healthy life for your little one.
Hang in there ladies we are almost there! :~)

i think ive been jinxed as well! my son was born right at 37 weeks and ever since 33 weeks ive been progressing each week. my doctor thought i would go last week..but nope. hah. im 37w3d and im 4cm and 70% as of yesterday..yesterday my doctor sent me to the hospital cause she thought i was leaking. well turns out i wasnt but i was having contractions 2-3 min apart and i dilated from a 3 to a 4 in an hour. she wanted me to walk around to see if i would dilate more. i didnt..just effaced more. so she gave me a choice and said i could stay and be admitted or go home. i just decided to go home to see how things go...now i feel better. GO FIGURE. but i still feel like crap if that makes any sense hahha...i should have stayed!

I've got another 4 weeks left and I'm in so much pain it's unbelieveable I just wish I could get induced and then that would be me done but I doubt they'd do that, unfortunately lol. good luck :)

I'll be 38 weeks tomorrow and have my dr. appt to see if there is any change. As of last week, I hadn't dialated at all and she estimated about 20% effaced but he has dropped and is at like -1 so I constantly have a feeling that I need to go to the bathroom which is a little annoying. Other than that, I'm still hanging in there ok. Not too many pains or other discomforts but I'll be happy when I can hold him!

i'm also due very very soon. i'll be 39 wks tomorrow(due march 4th) & like you i am also feeling very uncomfortable. our baby girl dropped prlly a good 3 wks ago, so im now constantly running to the bathroom & can barely walk because the top of my legs hit my belly (so of course i'm one of those lucky ones with the preggo waddle .. :oP ) ..my back has been killing me for the majority of my pregnancy.. so i guess im getting used to that lol... but other than that i've been feeling pretty great, i guess as good as you can feel for being 9 months preggo. i've been having contractions on & off.. and as of last week i was 2cm & 70% effaced. .. I was also told that it highly unlikely i would make it to my due-date.. that they were almost certain i'd go 2-3 wks early.. but here we are lol.. i'm deff. not complaining tho.. i know the longer she is in there till the due date .. the more beneficial it is for her..& we are just blessed all together, we had a few complications at the begining and thought for sure the one night we had lost her.. so we are veryy grateful we have made it this far.. Congrats to you & good luck!♥

praying to see some more changes today at the doctors. i was told i'd be having her by this week (week 37!) and i'm starting to lose hope myself haha. I think the doctor and I jinx myself. i'm in a lot of pain and its hard to move. my body has taken a sudden change over the last week and i just feel different. everyone around me is saying i'm acting different too which i found odd. I was 1.5cm dilated and 80% effaced at 35 weeks, and I get checked again today (there was no change last week boo!) I am just happy to make it to full term, but with spring break next week, i would love to have her come out!
