Did you just feel like your baby would be late and turn out to be right?

Did you just feel like your baby would be late and turn out to be right?
I am due in 4 days with our first baby – a little boy in there 🙂

I just have a ‘feeling’ that Im going to be late.

We are due in 4 days yet I dont really feel like its going to happen!

I dont even think I feel like the baby has dropped yet – everyone keeps saying it will ‘feel like the baby is going to fall out” or that it will “feel like there is a boulder between my legs when I sit” …

and I dont feel like that at all ?

I have to pee NON stop- but thats it.

Did anyone else feel fine still – not like there was a boulder between your legs etc – yet the baby had actually dropped and you still delivered around your estimated due date ?

with my first baby i knew i would go late. i had her when i was 40w5d along. im 34w3d and through the whole pregnancy i’ve had the feeling im going to go early and as it turns out im having signs that labor might be close, according to my doctor.

Answer by I’d rather be at the beach
it could be that your baby won’t drop until you’re in labor. my daughter didn’t drop until I was 20 hours into labor. Once my water broke, she came right down, and was born 20 mintues later.
My son stayed low, the entire pregnancy. I would have to move his head to sit down. He was a week early, but his labor was still long (25 hours)
My daughter was 5 days late. And I knew she wasn’t going to be on time, or early. We decided to go ahead and install her carseat, on my due date. I finished packing my hospital bag a few days later. I was just in no hurry, and neither was she

I never felt the boulder thing at all with my son. I thought with no doubt in my mind I was going to go overdue with him and he came on his due date. I was planning on going to Mexico that day too, that’s how normal I felt. My water broke at 1am

Answer by mrsb
my main problems were getting up at night, not really a problem just hard to adjust to because there is nothing like getting good sleep lol

Answer by Free 2 B Me
Not sleeping when he slept leaving me more tired.

Answer by •:*:•Ky♥Mom•:*:•
I have to agree with the first poster… getting up at night is the hardest… while the first few nights are pretty easy it only goes down hill from there… by the time my son was about 3 months old I think I could get up, walk to the kitchen, make a bottle and feed my son without even waking up (okay maybe I woke up, but I really got used to it!)
Also it’s just pretty nerve racking altogether! It’s a pretty big thing to get used to, but mothers usually catch on pretty quickly.
Sleep when you baby sleeps, and remember it’s okay to let your house be messy… I tried to hard when I brought my baby home, and rarely got to enjoy just having him there, so mainly just enjoy it, and get as much sleep as you can, sleep deprivation can do a number on you!
Good luck!

you are not going to get a good night’s sleep for about the first six weeks or so, so rest up now! First week is a lot of feeding, changing diapers and listening to crying. This will be all day every day, no breaks! Unless you have help and are planning to formula feed. In that case you might be able to nap more that I did!

Answer by momsey
Expect an insane lack of sleep. You’ll never believe how much that baby is up in the night, and might only be able to sleep when you are holding him or her. Just try to take it easy, listen to everyone’s advice when they tell you to sleep when the baby is sleeping. And just know that it will get better!

Answer by Practical & Magical
oh wow, actually my 1st week home, we stayed with my mom (me daddy and baby) and like after day 2, daddy and I slept though an entire day! My mom got up with the baby. Pretty bad, but seriously didn’t hear her! But after that, if she wiggles her toes i hear her!

Answer by krob8008
You’ll be really tired and possibly a little emotional. Man, thinking back on my first baby, the time we spent together right after we came home from the hospital was just so special! I really enjoyed it! I was young and tired and basically single (not really) but I was doing it all on my own. My first baby boy just holds this really special place in my heart. You’ll melt every time you look at your baby! Congrats!

My main problems were trying to nurse, figuring out a pumping routine, and coping with feelings of jealousy i had toward my husband. He did a lot of the post-birth care for our baby because I had a c-section and couldn’t do much lifting, walking, etc. I felt insanely jealous/threatened that he was changing the diapers and picking her up from the bassinet in the middle of the night. That subsided during week two. Being a mom brings out your protective side!

Okay, well it was HELL for me..no one told me babies eat every 2 hours night and day..so when I was getting woken up all night long..I was wanting to rip my hair out and run away.
But she didnt just wake up..once she got up at say 1 am..she was up until like 5 in the morning..crying.
So just be prepared to not geting ANY sleep..and be prepared to hear lots of crying.

Most babies get their days and nights mixed up..and it normally stays like that for atleast a couple of weeks..for my daughter it took her nearly 10 weeks to figure out night time was for sleeping.


lol..thanks for the thumbs down losers.

Answer by imglowinq
it is my first baby..and i only live with my husband who knew even less than i did… i didnt even want to sleep because i was afraid the baby couldnt breathe or something since i never had been in charge of a newborn before…i didnt even have time to eat, i ended up loosing 40 pounds in a month, unbelievable but true

Video of baby moving his crib?

Video of baby moving his crib?
Does anyone have the link to that video where the baby moves his crib & gets out? I think it was on a show like America’s Funniest Videos or something. I can’t find it anywhere. The parents had set up a hidden camera to see how he was getting out, and he moved the crib across the floor and climbed out or something. Thanks in advance!

nope thx for the 2 pts

Answer by cw21dlr
Yes, that was on America’s Funniest Videos; only about 2 or 3 weeks ago, in fact, and it did indeed win. Did you try going to the AFV website or ABC website or checking youtube.
It was definitely America’s Funniest Videos, though.

EDIT: I just googled “America’s Funniest Videos”, got to their homepage, clicked “Winners” and watched this again. Amazing…this kid is gonna go places…lol. It says it aired originally November 9th, 2008, so I must have been watching a rerun. It’s called “When there is a will, there is a way – escaping toddler”. Enjoy!
