Missing Mylot....

United States
September 13, 2008 8:50am CST
Even though Ive been around reading emails I just cant sit at the computer long enough to do much so Im missing the fun of Mylot. But i am hoping to be back very soon. I am having contraction every 5-10 minutes but they just dont want to progress from there. Last check I was dialated to a two but I havent been checked in a few weeks ow so it could be more. Ive been walking alot and trying to put myself into labor. And before anyone freaks im 38 weeks on Tuesday so no worries she will be healthy and ready. Plus she isnt gonna come untill shes ready no matter what i do lol. So what ideas do you guys have for safely helping labor along cause im tired of all these contractions I WANT MY BABY.

oh dear you might have your baby on Mylot, that might be a first for Mylot, you may even get an extra point for that, maybe you could even call your baby Mylot.....

I've been wondering what happened to you minnie since I realized your time was getting closer and closer. I have no great words of advice for you but I guess the walking around routine is a good one for you to do....I just hope your little girl isn't a pain in the assets as I must have been to my mother. Her doc told her I was due to pop out on Oct. 31...yes, Halloween..LOL..instead I didn't show up and make my appearance until Nov 19th....LOL. Unlike you however, she had been told by her doc not to walk around and had to stay in bed most of the time.....think how boring that must have been for her

Oh man that would suck. I think my doctor is considering breaking my water soon depending on how ready i appear at todays doctor appoinment. Im hoping cause i cant do this much longer im so crabby cause i get no sleep.

All I can say is just to keep doing what you are doing. She will come when she is good and ready or until the doctor says it's time to induce. The walking should be the thing to do and I hope you are remembering to drink your water. haha

hi minnie well when I was p regnant with my first one, we went on a car trip over rough roads with the thought that that might induce labor but no luck. But the next day I was feeling a little crampy and got up to go the bathroom, and boom my water broke, splashing on my legs, the whole bit. so I phoned my ob doctor who said to come on in to the hospital even though it might be a few hours as I was prime nip,first time mom. I called a c ab as my husband was at work. The cab driver took one look at my bulging belly and drove like a maniac to St Josephs hospital in Phoenix. I thought we would have an accident but did get their all in one piece. well it took all day and part of the night but I had my son at four thirty in the morning. I called myhubby while lying on a gurney on my way to my room and told him the food news. He was working as a cook for a movie crew who weree on location filmint the movie, How The 'west was one. lol.

This is my third and i have yet to have my water break they have always had to do it at the hospital to progress my labor so I am hoping that is what my doctor may want to do very soon. For some reason my body doesnt work so well at getting a baby out i need help lol.

OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOH How exciting! I was wondering when she was going to start making her presence. To hurry the labor up, play with your n!pples... I am not being dirty or weird, but it is something my doctor told me when I was pregnant with my 2nd child. The same muscles that control an org@sm are the same that control the contractions, and doing something to "excite" you will help set the contractions off and get you into labor faster. I'm thinking bout ya. Please report back in a few hours.

I was wondering if anyone had the courage to bring this one up lol. My hubby has been taking care of this for me but it doesnt seem to be working so well just yet. But he doesnt seem to mind trying it anytime so we will have to keep trying lol.

[i]Hi minnie, wow..nice to hear from you, hmm..maybe the famous date we guessed last time will be correct! Let's see! Anyway, I've never been in that situation but walking is good for you and the baby, hopefully, you will deliver her this week, my guess is that before Friday you will have your baby already, woohoo,, I am sure the entire family is very happy and excited! Take care![/i]

as you say she will come when she is ready, you just have to be patient and wait. I hope you will get back here soon, but then you will have all the responsibility for the new baby so it will be hard.

Hi minnie, That waiting is frustrating isn't it. The doctors all told me to walk...walk ....walk. All mine came rather quickly. I don't know if that is what helped or if that is just how it was meant to be. It can't hurt.

Walking is good, drink plenty of water, relax and let those involuntary muscles do the rest.

I know what an exciting time this is for you, minnie! Finally, after all the long months of waiting you will get to see and hold your new baby. My advice to you is to be patient. As you said, she won't come until she is ready.

But i dont want to be patient lol. Cant i make her ready? Ive tried bribing here to come out but shes not listening.

It sounds like you are going through exactly the same thing that I went through with my fourth and my heart sympathises with you. I can also tell you now that all these old wives tales about things that will bring a baby on do not always work and your baby will come when she is ready too and not before! Good Luck though with everything!

Hi minnie, I see you haven't responded anymore here, for about seven hours, so maybe this means you're in the delivery room, as I'm typing this. I can understand why you're so anxious, as I remember the last part of my pregnancy, I just wanted the baby here. It seems like you're doing all of the right things, to get going. Of course, she'll come in her own good time, unless you end up being induced, as I was. One thing my doctor did (but I was almost two weeks overdue), was to do an examination, and 'manually' try to get me to start dilating. Ouch! Anyway, I wish you all of the best, and maybe the next time you're 'here,' you'll have your beautiful little girl home with you. Take care. Hugs.

I wish in reality it was just that i was uncomfy and had to lay down for a long time lol. I see the doctor today so hopefully im dialating more we will have to see. Better yet mabey she will send me in to be induced well break my water......i have never had my water break it has always needed to be broken and each time i had my boys within hours of them breaking my water.

Oh minnie, I'm so hoping that you have your beautiful baby girl 'here' soon. My water didn't break on its own either, when my daughter was born. As soon as the nurse broke it though, it wasn't long until she was here. Take care.

I think Savannas praying louder to stay in cause it isnt working lol. God has his plan and I guess it includes me waiting a bit longer. Im impatient but i do want her to be healthy when she comes so ill wait if i have to.

Congradulations on the pregnancy Even though I missed much of your pregnancy. The last couple of weeks are the worst. The waiting especially. Oh and I hated it when someone told me to sleep as much as I can before the baby get here! It's like how can ya sleep when the baby is too big and doesnt allow it. What sucked the most about my last pregnancy was that i was in labor with hard labor pains for 2 weeks! Contractions and everything. That hurt really bad! Well i hope you just enjoy the time you have left and use it as "me time" because once the baby gets here there is no "me time" lol.
