The "overdue" club ~chat~ - Page 5

post #81 of 86
I'm officially out of the club! I gave birth to a beautiful baby girl on 10/15 at 41+2. It was a long, intense labor, but well worth every second! Good luck to all the mamas still waiting. I swear, I think the last week of my pregnancy was the longest week of my life!

I'm still here at 42+1 as of today! But my midwife and I came up with a "plan" today so this baby will be here by Wednesday no matter what (well unless something crazy happens--let's hope not). Had my first VE today plus a S&S. About 3 cm dilated and 40% effaced. My midwife stretched me to about 4 but said there was no sweeping to be done! My baby's head is right against my cervix.

I am going to take castor oil in the morning. Hoping that works and if not, then my MW will come to my house Wed morning and break my water. As long as it is clear, we will stay at home and hopefully I go into labour. If I don't, then off to the hospital for pitocin. I hope it doesn't come to that, but I will feel at that point that I did all I could.

My blood pressure is also creeping up and that is concerning my midwife. She said my body needs this baby to be born -- no kidding! And my brain.

Good luck mamas -- I hope none of you make it as far as I have -- waiting this long has been *very* trying!

Countrygirl28: Congratulations!!! Welcome to your sweet baby girl

Desamom: Wow!! for making it to 42 +1. That's a long haul! I hope that everything works out the way that you and your mw have planned and that your fluid is clear. Either way, looking forward to updates.

I had my baby! 42 weeks and 2 days with the threat of castor oil and then induction waiting. I started having contractions around 4 am yesterday morning and was in active labour by 8 am. Five and a half hours later my beautiful baby girl was born after 32 minutes of pushing! I had her at home as planned and all is well. It was really, really hard but I am so glad it worked after all the waiting I did.

Her name is Cala and she was 9 lbs, 2 ounces.

Good luck to all the other overdue mamas!
