Born & Birth stories



Your baby's crown-to-rump length at this time is approximately 14.4 inches and the total length is approximately 21.5 inches. The average baby weighs a little more than 7 pounds now and is preparing for birth. You are probably as big as you are going to get and may be uncomfortable now. Most women gain between 25 and 35 pounds during their pregnancy. Your uterus is about 7-8 inches above your bellybutton now.

Although your baby continues to grow and develop inside of your uterus, there is not much room for him to move about. All of your baby's organ systems are now complete and the lungs were the last to fully mature.

If you are uncomfortable with your pregnancy at this time, you are not alone. Most women are ready to deliver their babies. It would be very unusual for you to not be uncomfortable at this time. Your uterus has grown a lot and now fills your entire pelvis and abdomen. Try not to ask your doctor to induce you, unless it is medically necessary. Your cervix is ripening in preparation for delivery and your bladder is under a lot of pressure. You may feel nervous about the upcoming labor. You will know when you are in labor because contractions will get worse when you move around and they will also get stronger and more frequent. Other signs of labor are the breaking of your water or a bloody show as the mucus that plugged your cervix becomes dislodged.

Most of the lanugo on your baby should be gone by now. Your baby still may have some on his shoulders and in the creases of his body. Your baby's toenails have reached the end of his toes. The umbilical cord is about a half inch thick and may be wrapped around him. The umbilical cord still supplies the baby with nutrients that he needs. After delivery, your baby's umbilical cord will be clamped and cut. After it is cut, he will be an independent human being and must perform all of his body functions on his own. Your baby will get antibodies from your body that give his immune system a boost.

She is here! They induced me again on Monday. Broke my water after being on pit for a while. She checked me a while later and I was a 5 things started to get so intense about that time. I wussed out and asked for the epi. Was told I would have to wait because the guy was tied up with a section. Well Rozline didn't want to wait so decided to come then! So I went from a 5 to baby is here in 30 min!! It was crazy, but guess I got my natural labor I wanted lol. No tearing or anything, but after pains are killing me lol. She was born on 11/25/13 at 11:04 pm weighing 7.4 oz and 20 in long. Will update more when I can get to a computer and not my phone.

armywife63 - 247 days ago
Oh, Zem...what an ordeal! On the bright side, you got your Christmas shopping done. I'll be thinking about you and hoping that Rozline decides to make her move soon. Maybe a Thanksgiving baby?

zem6 - 248 days ago
So guess what ladies, I am still PREGNANT!!! Went to be induced yesterday morning, they started the pit. I was having change but VERY slowly. When we started Rozline was sitting at a -2 station, she moved down to a -1 and we thought that we might just be in for a long labor. NOPE she decided she wasn't having any of it, so moved back UP to a -2 station! Can you believe it? So we decided to stop the induction, because the risk of prolapse was too high if my water broke. I go to the Dr. first thing tomorrow morning. Hope she moved back down, if she did we may try to induce me again tomorrow. If not, we will have to wait till Wed. or Sat... So upset she decided not to come, but if she wasn't ready.... Went walking a lot today and got pretty much all of our Christmas shopping done, so one less thing to worry about after she comes. Hopefully all the walking helps her move back down and be ready for tomorrow, if they will induce me.

samvowles - 249 days ago
Congrats zem, i am sure you are finally ready to have your little one. Cant wait to hear the weight and length. Good luck ashpeababy, hope all goes well for you.

armywife63 - 250 days ago
Great news, Zem! Ashpeababy, hope Saturday is your lucky day, too!

ashpeababy - 250 days ago
congrats Army and 3going4nine! (wow, that's crazy, just 4 min after you got to the hospital!! Would love to hear the whole story on that :)) I had my doctors apt yesterday and am 3cm, 80% effaced and baby's head is in my pelvis at station -1! So excited! He stripped my membranes but said he didn't really do much as they were already pulling away on their own. He thinks I might have her this weekend! I had major uncomfortable contractions and vag pain for a few hours last night but that resulted in nothing. Made a bunch of freezer meals today so I said the baby can come now. Went to the bathroom and (sorry if tmi) I lost my mucous plug! Ive never had that with my previous 3 pregnancies so I hope that means any time now! Im hoping tomorrow, Saturday seems like a great day to have a baby :) Good luck to everyone else waiting!

zem6 - 251 days ago
So just got back from my Dr. visit. Thought I would have no change again and he would tell me to come back next week. BUT he tells me I am a good 2-3 dilated! So we set up my induction for this Sat. at 7:30 am! I am so excited and ready to see this little girl!

samvowles - 252 days ago
Congrats armywife and 3going4nine!!! Zem, good luck with your appointment tomorrow, hopefully they canset your induction date this time.

kaglaud - 252 days ago
2cm dilated, membranes stripped today and NST and Alexander is fine. Now we just wait for him to show up. If he doesn't come soon I will be induced 30 Nov 13

martin515 - 252 days ago
Induction Monday morning, if my girl decides to wait that long!

3going4nine - 252 days ago
Congratulations, Armywife! Hopefully recovery and pain management will improve quickly. Madison Mae is so sweet.

3going4nine - 252 days ago
Well, it turns out that I was in labor and our dashing Clark Ebenezer was born on Monday (11/18) at 3:01am just 4 minutes after we got to the hospital. He is my earliest and fastest delivery and smallest baby weighing in at 7lbs 6oz. It has been a bit of a whirlwind with some complications along the way, but we are home and surrounded with the love that new life brings. He's just beautiful, we have so much joy. I'll try to post our story soon. Good luck to the rest of you ladies.

armywife63 - 252 days ago
She was 7lbs 9oz and 19.75 inches. I'll be thinking about you, Zem!

zem6 - 252 days ago
Congrats Army!! How big was she? Hope you are feeling better now, and recover fast. I can't wait to join you....Getting a little antsy..lol

armywife63 - 252 days ago
Madison Mae was born Monday via C-section at 8:21am. She's doing great and couldn't be any cuter. I had a rough time with the C-section this time...they changed the pain management post op and it didn't work for me at all so I was in tons of pain all day on Monday and it was terrible. Yesterday was better and I'm doing okay so far today. Hope you all are doing great...for those that had their little ones, congrats! For those that haven't, hope all goes well.

zem6 - 253 days ago
I posted some promo codes in the polls section, if any of you ladies are interested. They are for some baby products.

sophie-hannah - 253 days ago
Hey ladies :) well me and theia are home now, we were in hospital for 6 days in the end so she could have her anti-biotics, she is now doing really well at home no health concerns thankgod and my scar is healing really well :) i gained 35ishlbs and as of yesterday i am only at 10lbs to lose to be back to pre pregnancy weight x

martin515 - 253 days ago
I've put on 40lbs this time around. Hope it comes off as easily as with my last 2. Makes me a lil nervous.

zem6 - 253 days ago
Just wondering how much everyone has put on? As of last week (38weeks) I was up 31 pounds... EEK!! lol. Hope she decides to do this soon, want to start getting rid of all this extra baggage I am lugging around!

zem6 - 254 days ago
Congrats Project! I had some pretty powerful contractions this weekend also but no such luck for me... Hopefully soon! lol I am sooo ready!! Come soon Rozline!

project:bumpthethird - 254 days ago
Miss Sophie Grace was born 11-14-2013 at 6:51am via a scheduled c-section at 39 weeks. She weighed 6lbs 14oz and is 20 inches long. She is a very quiet baby and we are spending our first night at home tonight. Brother (4.5) and sister (2) could not be happier. :) labor dust ladies.

3going4nine - 255 days ago
I already said it, but I'll say it again, good luck with the section tomorrow!

3going4nine - 255 days ago
Wow, I've had some pretty powerful contractions tonight. Nothing regular, but everytime I stand up I get one. And guess what? The pain radiates right down through my thighs! I remember Armywife saying she had that too. I'm not saying that I'm in labor yet, but I'm starting to think it may happen sooner than I thought.

zem6 - 255 days ago
Good luck Army! I hope all goes well. Hope to join you in the baby joys soon!

miam87 - 255 days ago
Good luck armywife! I hope everything goes great and soon you'll hold your little one in your arms :)

armywife63 - 255 days ago
Okay, Ladies. The next time I log on, I should have Madison Mae in my arms. C-Section in 12 hours and counting!! Hope I can settle down at least a little bit tonight and rest. The anxiety for the surgery is starting to kick in!

BCgarbaby - 255 days ago
I have 6 days left. And I feel like I am getting no where. Ive been at 3 cm for more than a week and have had some annoying Braxton Hicks but nothing significant, I feel like I am going to be pregnant forever and go over my due date. 6 days is plenty of time, but I feel stuck like this forever.

armywife63 - 256 days ago
Kagluad - I'll keep my fingers crossed for Sunday night for you!! Exciting :)

kaglaud - 257 days ago
Found out today at my apt that I'm about 1-2cm and 50% effaced. I'm hoping for Sunday night.

3going4nine - 258 days ago
Congratulations to Miam87. I'm glad you had such a good experience with induction. I am going to schedule my own induction for December 2nd. It just feels nice to have a real deadline.

3going4nine - 258 days ago
39 weeks today! I would not be at all surprised if I had a 9 pounder. I've already had 2 that were 8lbs 8oz and I don't remember having such heavy pressure and strain on my hips as I do with this pregnancy. I'm optomistic about the labor though since I didn't have a harder delivery than I did with my daughter who was 7.5 lbs.

miam87 - 260 days ago
I'm super scared of having a huge baby too she was about 7.5 lbs last week so hopefully I don't have a 9 lb baby... lots of labor dust for you ladies, hopefully we can all be holding our babies really soon and hopefully we can have fast and easy labors. Update us on your appointment tomorrow hopefully you get good news

miam87 - 260 days ago
I had my appointment today and Dr told me I dilated to almost 1.5 but that's it I have no contractions or anything else, I will go to the hospital tomorrow night to start induction and to hopefully give birth on Wednesday morning... I really didn't want to get induced but oh well I'm tired of being pregnant.

5150evelyn - 262 days ago
Same here!!! I'm so worried that I will go in on Tuesday and she will gave me a other appt to come back next week.. My last baby was 42 weeks I don't know if I can mentally go through that again. I'm walking around like she coming out already everything hurts. Everyone keeps asking when is coming home. I'm tried of answering the same question every 5 minutes. My mom is stressed out she can't take the wait anymore. My husband tells me just go inn and tell me u can't take it anymore. Haha and they will keep me!! I wish that it work like that.

fels - 262 days ago
am here too ladies,haven't been online for ages but am still waiting- due date is tomorrow but i have a feeling i will go over. With my DD i got induced at 41+4 days and baby was huge 9pounds 10 ounces ..thats my fear this time around. It will happen soon ladies, hang in there :)

5150evelyn - 262 days ago
Don't worry I'm been in the same boat as u. My mucus plug is out. I been having pains with pressure. No contraction!!! No water leaking!! No nothing... Till my next appointment Tuesday that's the only hope I have... Grrrrrrrrr I finally order car seat I wanted... Gonna take 3 days but that doesn't take my mind off of the situation... That my body won't let her go....

armywife63 - 262 days ago
miam87 - hang in there! Hope baby arrives tonight for you.

miam87 - 262 days ago
I'm still here super pregnant with no signs of anything :( she has until Tuesday to come out on her own so 2 more day to go

miam87 - 264 days ago
Hopefully you can get something soon after your appointment. As of today I have not lost my plug yet and have not had any pain or pressure down there. My Dr will not be on call this weekend and I was stressing about it but at this point I decided that it does not matters I just want baby out lol! Today was my original due date but Dr changed it to Monday the 11th. I have plenty of things to do so I hope that keeps my mind off :) I will go out for date night with hubby tonight and hopefully we get to get our sexy time to get things going even though I shouldn't get my hopes up lol

5150evelyn - 264 days ago
I was 2 weeks overdue with my last one. Yes I know 10 days past and nothing ....

5150evelyn - 264 days ago
I know my OB said Kaiser only lets u go 7 days past ur due date I'm due on Monday but my appt isn't. Till tuseday I asked her if I got a appt for inducted but she said let's talk on Tuseday so hopefully. I will be in the inducted that day... I'm hoping not sure either.... I'm already making my schedule that day.... Family and friends tried of asking....

miam87 - 265 days ago
Omg 10 days overdue??? I would go nuts. Do you girls have any idea if you will get induced if baby doesn't show up soon? Lots of labor dust! We really needed!!

miam87 - 265 days ago
I had some contractions last night and I got super excited, they were every 4 or 5 minutes but not very painful then I felt asleep and woke up like nothing :( I just came to the conclusion that baby will come when she is ready and there is nothing I can do... I have been walking like crazy the past few days and I just end up with pain and aches in my body and baby is still very comfy in there :)

5150evelyn - 265 days ago
Didn't u think by November 1st ur baby would be here already.. Not by almost by the middle or by Thanksgiving... With our luck... So hopefully this will be over and my daughter will make me forget this wait!!!! Labor dust because we need it!!!

5150evelyn - 265 days ago
I feeling it...... I pick up the kids at school I got parent asking me what going on....I'm just want to have her already not checking every pain or mucus for nothing.... This is getting to be to frustrating... At least u got a date to go inn. I still have no date :(....

dazieoo - 265 days ago
I haven't been on here much at allllllll.. but i'll be 40 weeks on Saturday.. and absolutely NO progress..... high, tight, 0 dialation =P. ehhh... I think my body just likes to keep my babies inside.. I was 10 days over with my first when they finally induced me..

miam87 - 266 days ago
Evelyn at least you have symptoms of going into labor anytime soon... I'll be 40 weeks on Monday too but as of of now I feel nothing! I doubt she'll make an appearance before my induction next Tuesday. Im so tired of people asking me if I had baby already. .. I understand they are anxious and excited but it makes it harder on me :(

scarletwillow - 266 days ago
39w4d here and exceedingly pregnant :(

5150evelyn - 266 days ago
Its like being the last one off a ship!! MORE MUCUS PLUG WITH CRAMPS.... Lets see what happens today..

5150evelyn - 267 days ago
Don't worry... I'm here too I'm 1 1/2 cm and 20%.. I'm due on Monday... So my other appt is on the 12 overdue by 1 day... So MAD!!!!!! No day for induction still.... With my luck... I'm off to sleep this day off... Hope tomorrow by some miracle my water brakes and I have her by tonight!!! I'm need sum labor dust all over my bed this ain't funny no more.....
