What is the deal?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Pregnant with baby #3. First DD came at 38 weeks and 2 days and second DD came at 38 weeks and 4 days. I am now 40+1 weeks. Why does this baby not want to come out? I keep telling myself to trust my body, trust my baby etc. but I am getting frustrated and worried that something is wrong. I have been having lots of menstrual type cramping and contractions here and there for about two weeks but it never goes anywhere. I thought first babies were suppose to be the late ones not the third one.

My MW friend told me "The only thing you know about baby number 3 is, you know nothing at all!"

I know you are probably going insane, I expected my 2nd to be early and she was 5 days late, but I was emotionally traumatized from it. I know how dramatic it sounds, but seriously those were some of the worst days of my life because I set myself up for it. Have a date night without the other kids, and eat A LOT of whatever you eat (I like italian!) It sounds too simple, but I swear that helped bring my baby out. Good Luck!

Come on, it is only a week or two or so that is different.
Have you been exactly sure about conception with each pregnancy?
There is so much that can be different with this one.
I know it is frustrating! Did that baby know how long you were preggers with his sibling?

Hugs and labor vibes!

My mom's 3rd kid, my little brother, was 12 days late - her latest! No idea why, but his birth was quick and easy. Hang in there!

I've got the same thing happening over here - my first was 39+5, my second was 40+5, and now for #3 I am just past 41w - I seem to be going LONGER with each pregnancy instead of the other way around!

I was really frustrated last week, especially at 40+5 when I realised I'd be going longer than last time, but after a good cry I got over it and now I'm feeling more peaceful and trusting than I ever have before giving birth.

Good luck to you, mama, I'm sure you will have a beautiful birth experience
