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!
