I feel you, Mama. I am 41+3, so we're in the same boat. I've not had anything beyond Braxton Hicks (but I've been having them my entire PG since I use Red Raspberry Leaf tincture) and some practice contractions that once in awhile make me think maybe something is happening.
I've decided to forgo any cervical checks unless I go waaay past due and am facing induction or if I think I might actually be in labor. I'm afraid mentally it will hinder the process - getting overly excited that something seems to be happening or worse, not seeing much dilation at all and get discouraged.
It is really hard. DH and I have been mentally prepared to go beyond our EDD, but it's much harder when you actually get here. Everyday feels like marching toward a dreaded deadline for me. I hate that feeling. I'm doing my best to stay mentally strong and confident and positive.
What's crazy is my sister's EDD is/was exactly one month later than mine, but she has a history of delivering at 38 weeks. Considering I am about to be 2 weeks 'late', we're probably going to deliver realllllly close together : ) I talked to her yesterday and she's already dilated 2-3 cm. I told her at the same time is fine, but before me is NOT fair! ha ha.
Hang in there - it should be any day now for us!
