i need to witch too (confession - i'm only 3 days past my EDD) but i am going out of my head with the wait. it's my fault - i was a couple of days before my EDD with both of my boys, and only a day or 2 after with my daughter. so, i figured i would go a day or 2 before this time too (i'm having a boy).
things are so different this time around too - nearly 2 weeks of prodromal labour - it's head-wrecking, and at this point, discouraging >:( with my other 3 kids, there was a clear start to labour, and it was pretty much: lose mucus plug, start contractions, have baby. just goes to show that it can really be different no matter your history.
my MW appt 2 weeks ago had my cervix, soft, midline and 1cm dilated. good. last week my cervix was forward, effaced (nearly all the way) and i was 2 cms AND baby's head was engaged. GREAT! i figured that birth would be within 2 days of that since usually with subsequent kids, when the head is engaged, things are good to go. AAARGHHH! apparently not this time i see my MW again tomorrow...i am VERY tempted to have a stretch n' sweep. but i might not. i have always said that baby knows when s/he is ready. i just don't know at this point. i'm annoyed cuz last week was gorgeous weather for here (manitoba) and everything was ready, the house was (emphasis on WAS) clean, and we were all healthy. now the weather is colder (no big surprise, but still), house is dirty and we're all fighting off colds!that fact will probably make me decline the sweep - i can't imagine how much it would suck to sorta keep my kids away from the new baby; they're very eager to meet the new one too! it will make me sad indeed to have to semi-restrict access to baby due to excessive sneezing/coughing.
i am so discouraged and ticked off. now i am thinking that all the stress is preventing labour from starting. gah!!!
my heart goes out to all of you who are much further along in the waiting game than i - especially those who are fighting the "induction clock"
