lawmama - yay how exciting! Good luck! I think you had the same due date as me, so I hope I'm next!
I have to go in for an NST and BPP today. Which I was hoping not to make it to, but oh well. If they accidentally ruin the surprise about my baby's gender at the ultrasound, like last time I was pregnant, I'm going to hit someone.
I had exactly 1 painful contraction last night. Which now I'm starting to doubt I even felt, since I haven't had any more of them. Really I feel like the 42 week "deadline" is much more stressful than just waiting for the baby to come. This morning I woke up to think "oh no, only 4 days left", as if I'm some sort of ticking time bomb. I hate feeling like that. I think, despite losing the tax deduction and having to be a bit forceful with the midwives, I'm going to skip scheduling any induction this week if the tests look good.
I'm trying to be encouraged rather than discouraged that everyone else with a due date earlier than me has dropped out of this thread already. And that no one seems to have needed induction just for being late, and all babies are OK.
Natalya - I don't know why nipple stimulation would stop working. I know it doesn't work for me either, but it didn't work in the first place (I suspect my nursing toddler accustomed my uterus to that a long time ago).
