Thank you for posting these. They are beautiful and exactly what I needed to read today! (((hugs)))

it depends

According to the ultrasound EDD, I was due Jan 7, so YES.

According to the wheel, I'm due Jan 15, so NO.

DS 1 was six days past US EDD. DS 2 was 11 days past US EDD.

I'm very ready, but also believe in my body's ability to DO this when it's time. No plans for any induction methods at this point. I've been telling people I'm due Jan 21 for the entire pregnancy, so most of the annoying "overdue" questions haven't even started yet. hee hee.

That's what I've been doing, "End of January" to anyone who asks.

Ultrasound EDD of January 11/12... charting date of today. I'm really surprised I'm still pregnant. My daughter was born first thing in the morning on her duedate, so I am officially more pregnant that I've ever been before! I have had a cold for over two weeks now that I'm struggling to shake so I think that's a big reason why the baby is still staying in.

Yeah! Me! Though I'm really starting to speculate now. I thought my EDDs were between Dec. 26 and 31, but I was nursing DD at the time and she wasn't STN yet, so my observed temperature shift on my fertility chart is likely way off. So that leaves the 20 week ultrasound due date of Jan. 7. So still overdue (six days), but not nearly as much as I originally thought. Right now my midwife and I are just going with the flow. I did have her strip my membranes this weekend though to see if it would do anything (and it pretty much didn't). Baby will come when it's ready.

40 weeks, five days:

Still waiting here. got a perfect score on my BPP earlier this week and my NST looked great today. I was able to brush off induction this weekend rather easily, which made me feel instantly better. Not a fan of having things dangled in front of me. I agreed to NST this Sunday and BPP again on Tuesday and will take it from there. I'm thinking baby will be here sometime over the weekend, but what do I know, I'm hardly the one in charge...

I had my first BPP today. The tech said everything looked good. I know weight estimates are estimates but they said 8 lb 2 oz! I saw his face! I haven't had a u/s since 19 weeks so it was pretty emotional to see his face.

I am antsy and ready for baby to come. So far I've avoided asking my MW to sweep my membranes, but if I don't go into labor before Monday (my next MW apt and BPP apt) I'll probably ask her to do it then.

DD was born at 41 + 6... which would be Monday Jan 18 for this one

Love this thread, it's definitely the one for me. I am 40 weeks, 6 days today. I really appreciate your quotes faliciagayle. I have a nst tomorrow. I just can't believe I've gone this long. My other two were just two and three days past their due date and this baby is so much bigger than them! I just want to hold her and see her. i am so sick of being watched and asked how I am. My hips are killing and I can't sleep. Lots of good wishes to all the mamas here.

Thought I would post on this to have others join in my self pity party.

I woke up this morning and I barely feel pregnant, like the only thing going on is my big ole belly. It is so awful and wonderful at the same time I want to cry. My mom asked me what was going on and I told her I barely feel pregnant, and she said something along the lines of "I mean, no contraction or anything" What part of I barely feel pregnant is coming through on the phone.


Gaaahhhh

I know exactly what you mean.

Today so far, 4 people have either called or texted to see "what's happening" and I reply, absolutely nothing! I guess everyone is expecting me to say I feel horribly miserable but I feel totally normal, except that no clothes barely fit me anymore and I can't put my own socks on.
