Bena, your MIL may inadvertantly be causing you so much stress that you're waiting for labor until she leaves. Just saying...lol.

I just wanted to say good luck to.everyone waiting. It is so soon for all of you!

I second babytoes. I stopped working on Wednesday and took a day for myself Thursday. By Saturday I gave up and told the baby to come whenever she was ready and ignored everyone. 2 days later (41+4) she was here.

Oh and the pushy doctor who wanted to induce was the doctor to discharge me from the hospital ...I really think he could have been a little more humble but it was interesting to see his face when he said "I guess we can take you off the induction schedule ..."

Haha! Nice moment. smile.gif

 

Bena, hopefully having a little pressure off will let your body do what it needs to. Then your MIL can come back and be a great MIL again. smile.gif

 

And maybe I'll go into labor once I finally have our taxes done! Heehee...

Uggh, i'm so sorry, mama hug.gif. You must feel really discouraged. I hope it starts back up again soon and they are much closer together!!

Thanks. I'm actually doing ok. My last few labors have been like this. My instinct was telling me her head wasn't lined up well. Midwife came today and confirmed.. So we worked on it but she didn't stay. Midwife coming back tomorrow. I am praying for good sleep. :)

40 weeks today! Which isn't really "beyond" 40, but still. I feel sort of official now. smile.gif

Happy Due Date. Funny. You (and it being your EDD) was the very second thing I thought of when I woke up this morning. The first thing was wondering if hikingfortruth had had her baby.

She did! A pic is on the labor thread!

Dh and I had eggplant Parmesan for lunch. I went to the chiro in the afternoon. I've walking a lot and bouncing on a birth ball in between. I heard bananas can make your contractions "better" (it's the potassium) so I've been eating those like a monkey in hopes of making these pathetic contractions I've been having for three weeks turn into the real thing. Aaaaaaaannnnd...nothing.

Hah! I love how much this DDC has become integrated into my life. I talk about conversations on here to my husband like I know you all in person. I love having such a community. smile.gif

 

Contractions again this afternoon, this time 9-10 minutes apart, feeling stronger. Heard from my mom today that she'll make it here tonight, so maybe that triggered something. Here's hoping!

 

bananachild, finger's crossed the eggplant parmesan works for you! :)
