A certain little baby needs to make up his mind....


I've been off the tocolytic drugs now for a week and a 1/2. I made it to the 37 week mark (YAY!) and I'm now well beyond it! So tell me why the Little Guy has decided now that he's quite happy to stay right where he is and not come out of his momma's tummy!!! The whole 8 weeks I was on bed rest, I had very regular contractions, requiring the tocolytics. Now that I'm off them, I've only had a few times where they've been regular. Sunday night, I was having contractions that were 5 minutes apart, and they lasted a little over an hour, but then went away. The Little Guy is just teasing me now!!! Silly baby! I am now gaining a lot of weight ( no one can tell me now that I'm not huge!!!!) and he has dropped low in my pelvis, so I'm having a LOT of pelvic pressure/pain! Really not fun! He just needs to come now, I think! :) Ready when you are, kiddo!!!

It seems like it always takes a long time for babies to come! It sucks waiting, especially at the end. I'm sure you've heard this enough, but seriously- enjoy it while it lasts! I know you're in pain, but you'll never have this "freedom" again! At least not for many years. Love ya!

Sam you look awesome! Man the things we do to get our little ones here, Like 8 weeks of Bed rest it is CRAZY! I was just telling Nick last night that you should be having your baby any day now and I hope that is the truth I hope he does not make you play the waiting game too much longer.
we can not wait to meet him
Take care

Totally in the same boat as you! I had regular contractions all day on Monday and then they suddenly stopped. I am desperate now that I am past my due date. Good luck to you and let me know if anything works.
