I just want this baby to come out already. On Thursday I was 3cm dilated, 70% effaced, and baby was at a -1 station. The doctor told me that she would be very surprised if she saw me at my appointment next Thursday. But the way things are going it looks like she IS going to be seeing me on Thursday :( I'm so uncomfortable because of the pressure and pain that is being caused by him already starting to engage in my pelvis (and for all I know he's even further down now than he was Thursday). But I've had very few contractions, and nothing in any sort of pattern at all. And my DH doesn't seem to want me to do anything that might help get things moving along, and it is sort of depressing me. I feel as though my body is ready to get this over and done with, but all I keep hearing from everyone is that "it will happen when it's time". NOT helping at this point. I really just want to be holding my little baby boy. I love being pregnant, but I'm ready for this pregnancy to be over.

:( I am in the very same place. I feel like this pregnancy is never going to end and I just want to meet this baby girl already. I want to be holding her in my arms at this point. UGH!!! Hopefully he comes soon for you and hopefully neither of us make it to our Thursday appointments. <3

Big hugs to you! If it helps at all, I think there are several of us feel the same way! Sleeping is virtually impossible for me because I am so uncomfortable so I am so ready for this baby to make an arrival!

I can't remember what your due date is but is there an end in sight for you - i.e. induction, etc.?

I am right there with you. I am 38 weeks and I have been 3cm and 50% effaced for 2 weeks. Sleeping is a joke. I am awake every 1-2 hours to pee or because I am having cramps or BH. I have been WAY more crampy and have had some contractions these past two days along with a back ache. I am hoping my tues appt shows some major changes.

I hope you go soon :) and dont make it til thurs :)

I'm with ya! My due date is TODAY...yet, I'm at work. :smileymad: I'm trying very hard to focus on the positive - I got a great night's sleep last night and before too long I'll be wishing for sleep. But I am soooo uncomfortable. My groin and lower back hurt all the time. And when I get up from sleeping my hips juse ache. Mostly though I just want to hold and snuggle and love on this little guy.
