WEEK 37: DUE DATE HAS CHANGED!

Aug 05, 2010 - 11 comments

Hey all!! Soooo today was my 37 week appt and apparently they changed my due date which i didn't know! How did i not know? They didn't tell me! Lol. So instead of being due aug 27th my dye date is aug 24th. It's not a big deal but it would've been nice knowing! So i got my cervix checked annddd it's soft!!!! I'm so excited about that if you couldn't tell. The weather here has been kicking my butt! It was 112 yesterday so i'm ready for Chandler.. Well maybe next week, this weekend is  another full cleanup i'm doing. All of his stuff is put up, his clothes are washed, crib is up! I just would like to go over my house again with some different products. For the moms out there how long was your cervix soft before you started dilating? I'm anxious lol.

Oh that is exciting! My due date was changed from the 27th to the 20th back at my 10 week appt. I know for a fact that the 27th is correct but I'm not saying a word. LOL. I have no idea about the cervix, I was induced and I never thinned out until they started my pitocin drip. I think there is something wrong with my body to be honest.

We had the same due date? Exciting! Lol. I believe the 27th is correct for me as well i'm hoping he chooses to come a few days earlier. I don't think anything is wrong with your body (imo)! How are you doing though since closing time is near?

Well, mentally I'm holding up OK but I'm not sleeping well. Averaging just a few hours each night. My stomach is flip-flopping between nausea and starvation pains. Loose stools several times a day and no contractions. I remember most of these symptoms from my other pregnancies so I guess I'm perfect. LOL. How are doing? It sounds like you are having some contractions from your mood update.

I'm having all those in addition to cramping and contractions. I'm getting more sleep but i can't sleep through the whole night anymore due to someone kicking me or having to wake up running to the bathroom. When is your next appt? You're not dilated or anything?

Its really late in the game to be changing your due date. Most dates are more accurate from earlier u/s and LMP. I would go with the 27th also. But you might get lucky! We just celebrated Taylors first birthday yesterday. My LMP due date was 25th, according to doctors it was the 21st. She measured large my whole pregnancy and they never changed my dates. She measured almost 10 lbs at a 37 week u/s but they never had plans to induce, thank goodness! She was born a few days later weighing 7 lbs 6 ozs!! Large for being only 37 weeks (almost 38) but no where near 10 lbs, lol.
Your cervix being soft is good!! And it sounds like your nesting too! It wont be long untill you get to hold little Chandler!!!!!!
You can tell baby has dropped by the pressure thats off your lungs and such. Are you able to breath better???? Peeing alot is a good sign too, lol!

Tabbycat - I think her date was changed awhile back but she just found ou.

Treniece - I know I haven't dropped because the Dr. told me the baby is still high. I never dropped with any of my kids so I don't know what it feels like but what Tabbycat described is what I've heard also.

@tabby- yeah apparently my date has been changed for awhile but i was never told. I forsee him coming the 27th though or around that day. I hope not but he seems to be very comfortable. I don't seem to notice a difference in breathing, i'm so big lol. I have been peeing a lot lately for the past month so instead of complaining i'll say it's a good thing lol. @karendiane- i can't wait to hear your latest dr appt. Will you be induced this time or does it just depend?

It depends. I see 3 different midwives, a different one each week and I've tried to talk them into agreeing to induce me if I'm still preggo on my due date but so far they just keep telling me that they'll monitor me after my due date but they don't like to induce before 2 weeks past due. It's really frustrating because I've told them about the problems I had with my son going over and they are pretty much telling me that one bad experience doesn't mean I'll have another. I don't see any reason to risk it though. So, we'll see. I was sick as a dog today. Vomiting, headache and blurry vision but the hospital is an hour away and I wasn't going to go all the way there just to be sent home because I'm not past my due date. So, I just monitored baby's heartbeat with my doppler and rested. OK, I'm venting. Sorry. I'm really getting frustrated. I think the heat is effecting me as well. When do you go back to the Dr?

There is nothing wrong with venting!! I understand what the midwives are saying but i do think that if you're requesting it they should oblige you but hey, what do i know? Wow the hospital is far! I say if the symptoms don't go away then you should go in or consult one of the midwives but that's how i felt the other day (even though the office isn't an hr away) i didn't want to be sent home. They just monitor the heartbeat and if i have any contractions then send me on my merry way. I said next time i go it's gonna be real. The heat is getting to me in a bad way! I've been snapping on any and everyone i'm just so hot and irritated all the freaking time. My next appt is later on today and can't come soon enough. I'm having lower back soreness, abdominal, and legs. I feel weird.
