Im still here, still very pregnant and 41weeks today. I have had some disappointing hcp visits, being only 1- 1 1/2cms dilated, not effaced at all, posterior cervix and LO with a high head. Ive been doing EPO for the past week and havent felt any results from that, sad to say. Ive had a few "twinges" here and there, but nothing to really pay attention to. Lost my plug about 2 weeks ago, have had 2 days of bloody show (not consecutive) and still here I am!
The OB I have been seeing tells me my edd is 5/28 based on how "small" I have measured throughout (totally normal for me tho) and the results of 3 BPP/AFI ultrasounds. I put 0 faith in his dates. I am 100% sure my last LMP was August 9th, and am 99.99% sure that conception occured on August 23 (happy b-day DH lol). That would have made my EDD 5/16. This LO is my third girl, and having both my other DD's come a week early set me up for thinking the same was gonna happen here. All my boys were late except the last one at: 40+3, 41+1, 42+1days, and 6days early.
Ive gone from being really crabby (to put it mildly), to overly weepy and tried everything under the sun (other than the dreaded castor oil.... bleech!)to convince little miss that things arent really that bad outside the confines of the belly. She however is not inclined to agree with me. People are *really* starting to bug me with their "comments" . Im trying very hard to let go of being in control and just let things happen, but so much easier said than done. Physically I am still feeling great. No real discomforts to complain of other than some foot swelling by the end of the day (but with 6kids im pretty much on my feet from the time I get up till I hit the pillow). Im even not peeing as much during the night as usual which is a nice break.
Hope everyone else who is still waiting is doing well and that we have some wonderful birth stories to report soon. Hang in there Mamas
