I'll be 41 weeks tomorrow and I'm so sick of waiting. I feel like my body is never going to go into labour. This is my third baby and the first two times my body had no trouble, I don't understand why it is being so difficult this time. My DD was born at 39+6 weeks and my DS was born at 37+4 weeks. I've had a ton of "practice labour"... how can it need this much practice when it barely even practised the first two times and it should know very well what it's doing this time.
My fiancé came up for the birth over 2 weeks ago and we've been waiting and trying to get me into labour the whole time... we've tried everything... even castor oil (NEVER NEVER NEVER doing THAT again... ugh!). Now my fiancé has to go home tomorrow for the last 2 weeks of classes and a week of exams. It absolutely sucks because now I'm fairly sure he'll miss the birth. But we can't risk him staying because we can't afford for him to fail any of his exams (this is the final semester of his degree).
My fiancé is going to come back next Friday and go back on Monday next weekend. If I haven't had the baby by then I'm thinking of getting induced on Saturday or Sunday because I'd have to be a couple of days after that anyway and at least then he'd be here for the birth. I'm really not a fan of induction but I may be left with no other choice and at least my cervix seems to be ready so hopefully the labour would still be fast. Of course my home birth plans would be out the window but I think it would be worth the sacrifice at that point.
Thanks for letting me rant.
