New "Who's Still Pregnant?"

post #1 of 70
Thread Starter 
I'm still here at 40+4 weeks.

Plan is to be induced on Thursday but I'm hoping to go naturally before then. We've got a big girl here, just like her sisters and it's making my doctor nervous.

I am 40+2 and now even the prodromal labor has settled down. I am VBAC but they are giving me until 42 weeks and I will push for more if all is healthy and ok at that point. I have tried ALL of the tricks, nothing ever seems to happen. Now I am just tired and bored.

40 weeks today.

I've been having "episodes" of contractions and passing mucus plug since Saturday, but no pattern.

Tomorrow I see my OB for my weekly visit and NST (I'm high risk due to a previous placental abruption). He'll check me for dilation; he hasn't checked yet. I'd like to think that all this contracting is doing something.

He said he's leave me along until 41 weeks. We'll see...

40 +1 here. I'm getting some fairly serious action tonight after having membranes stripped today. I have gestational diabetes and they won't let me go past 41 so I'm hoping this works! I was 3 cm and 75% effaced this afternoon. Ctx are def here - feeling them in my back now. I'm going to start timing after taking a nice walk through the neighborhood.

40 + 5. Induction scheduled for Thursday the 30th. If I get sent home again still pregnant I will just cry.

40+1. Sigh. NO signs or symptoms, of any kind. Walked about 4 miles today, going to walk some more later. What sucks for me is that I don't have any options as far as "natural induction" besides sex and walking...can't get castor oil here, herbs, any of it. As a matter of fact, I can't even get my membranes stripped, because my doc (home birth OB) is so Zen about birth that he told me no more scheduled visits, he'll see me when I'm in labor. This is all new to me, I've never had a doctor be so relaxed before...I've always had SOMEONE down there poking around, lol....which I'm sure is why I've never gotten within 7 days of my due date before going into labor. So as far as I'm concerned, I'm already a week late, lol...I know, not very logical...but you know what I mean.

Oh, and my doc also told me that he's comfortable letting me go to the middle of October before we start talking hospital and induction. Not really sure how I feel about that, lol. I know I won't go that long, so I guess it doesn't matter.

40 + 2 ~ feeling ok with it, passing my due date and all, because it's the most likely outcome for pregnancies, the weeks between 37-40 were the most difficult, now it feels like a breeze... do not want an induction or even think about one at this early stage. My body is gearing up even though it feels progress is slow. Lost nearly all my plug on my DD, regular cramping but not strong or "regular" enough at this stage. This time 3 years ago, I was pregnant with my DD and had no signs what so ever, it wasn't until 40+6 that I woke with cramps and gave birth 12 hours later..... so all is good.... she will come out in her good time! 1.5-2 weeks more sounds easy compared to waiting the last 9 months lmao!

Had contrax all evening just to have them fade off when I laid down to rest. I lost done more chunks of mucus plug but no bloody show yet. I don't think I usually have any show until my water breaks.

Off to grocery shop and walk this morning, hoping to get thing to pick up again. Sometimes I think about the pain to cone and realize that I don't want to do this! Lol too late now, right?

42+3 today and counting. I've got absolutely zero promising signs and every day I wakeup thinking "WTF?!".

Is that for the person further along in gestation, or simply the last person in the DDC?


Either way, sending support and happy labor vibes to all of you...

I mostly lurk on this board, but I'm still pregnant here at 41+2. No signs of labor, but baby is very low and causing me quite a bit of pelvic pain lately. Hoping that means she'll come out soon! No plug, just CM and a few stronger contractions lately but no where near regular.
Carried #2 to 42+6, so I am not expecting anything until next week.
