Sooooo, trying to be patient and trust, but not a whole lot of action going on here. Love the photos of babies and all, but how's it going with my compatriots over 40 weeks?
Baby, please come out.
40 weeks, 3 days over here. I've gone past 41 weeks for each of my previous 3 pregnancies, so not so surprised. I've never given birth sooner than 41 weeks 1 day, and I've gone as far as 17 days past one EDD. Babies come when they're ready. Babies come when they're ready. Babies come when they're ready. Babies come when they're ready. Babies come when they're ready.
Yep, I'm 41w4d today. Had my membranes stripped a bit yesterday and used the breastpump for a little while, did stir up some pretty strong contractions. My acupuncturist said the baby would come yesterday or today. She's been right about everything else, so I have hope she's right again. Still hoping for a Christmas baby!
ok didn't happen, reverted to prodromal. Ah well. I'm 40+5 now, this is the "latest" I've been. Had acupuncture Wednesday and am scheduled for it again this Wednesday if no baby. Leaking fluid but not actually broken (pretty normal for me)
eta - membranes were half gone on Friday night, so hubby stripped the rest. I'm at 4-5 cm as of last night.
We have our 41 week prenatal visit tomorrow.
Prodromal labour fooled me again last night. And this morning, when I asked DP to stay home from work and called my MW to give her a heads-up that today might've been the day... then my contractions slowed down and almost went away entirely.
Tonight, contractions have been picking up again, but I'm going to sleep and hope that labour will come if I stop paying attention.
