OK. I know I cannot control this... *smirk*

As you know, last weekend, I had contractions galore, and on Monday, I found out that my cervix had actually changing.

yeah i wish i could say when too...I think everyone else will have their babies (happening already --women who were due after me having their babies) and me who's due in 5 days will be watching...oh well.. i go on July 6th for dr appt. I guess you never know ..baby could come and i have no warning.

I am kind of jealous of the scheduled births too.

I was thinking too that the 4th of July would be a neat day to have the baby as well. I am not due until the 22nd but both the doctor and I think I will not make it anywhere close to my due date. Not because I am having tons of contractions but because I never have. So, both he and I think I will have the baby next week and I was thinking if it had to be next week, why not July 4th? If only the power of suggestion would work.

LOL...you are too funny! I hope you get your "wish"...I'll have to make sure I keep scrolling down to see new birth announcements, such an exciting time.

Oh and I *hate* the fact that I know my BB's birthday. I mean, it is nice to be able to plan, but I sort of feel like that surprise is gone.

Although i didn't want baby early or anything i am kind of annoyed that everyone has their dates for their babies and I am due in 5 days and could have this baby when others are having their babies by c-section and were due much later than me..I guess i am getting jealous that i could possibly have this baby on July 21st even though i am due 7/7. I mean worst case scenario but still. I am 39 weeks 2 days and everyone is having their babies before this..My baby will prob be BIG.

It would be awesome to have fireworks on your birthday every year!!! hahaha

I'll keep my fingers crossed for you that he comes on monday :)

Do you go into labor soon after your cervix starts changing?

I decided long ago that my goober should come out on July 4th LOL
I think it would be a great & memorable date... but of course I have no control over it either :-)
I am sorry you've had days of hard contractions-- I hope you are able to rest, can you sleep through them at night?

I also wanted to give birth this weekend because it's the only time I Have some 24/hour available support to watch my son (my MIL is visiting).
After Monday, there won't be anyone to watch him , other than friends who can babysit a bit but that is not the same thing (my husband doesn't know my friends and would not likely let them baby sit our son for more than a couple hours)

Sounds like a plan! I hope it works out for you! ;) July 4th would be a really neat birthday!

This is the first pregnancy where I am having a birth that was scheduled so far in advance. It is a little weird, and I do miss the excitement of wondering when labor will begin, but I do have to admit it is AWESOME to know that the lastest I will be able to see my baby is in 11 days!!!! :D
