I went to 42 weeks and 6 days with my second. I tried all the usual stuff like walking, sex, castor oil, nipple stim.--nothing worked, he came when he was ready
. I didn't even have too much pre-labor. Just a few contractions the day before. My
labor ended up being only 5-6 hrs and my ds weighed 9lbs. I totally think the birth was easier because I waited until my body was ready. I spent alot of time those last few weeks rocking on my hands and knees or over the birth ball to make sure baby was in a good position.
It can be tough to wait and I know how frustrating it can feel! I changed my voicemail message so it updated ppl calling that I was still pregnant. It was my first homebirth and friends and family called a million times a day to check on me--very annoying after a while!
Just relax and try to enjoy the last few days before the baby comes. Once he/she is here, you will be plenty busy
