My heart goes out to all you mamas waiting! I only went to 40+6 and never felt "overdue", but I think if I'd gone to 42 weeks I would have felt differently (lotsa hugs, Sunshinelove!!)

I'm still here, too *sigh*. There's been so much "practice" labor, i have lost track. I'm now 42 weeks along and trying to stay positive. My intuition is strong, so i know it will tell me if something is wrong. I just want to be done and finally meet this little guy. Lots of love and ELVs to those who are still waiting...
Also, this article is wonderful for "overdue" mamas: http://angusbirthcompanion.moonfruit.com/ten-month-mamas/4520942714
Sunshinelove, it HAS to happen soon! I'm glad you trust in your intuition, though. Good for you. I don't think I'd be so antsy if I didn't know my homebirth window closes at 42 weeks... Even though I still have 9 days before that happens, it doesn't seem very long!
LOL, things are definitely quieting down around here! It makes a difference for me with my mom in town - more to keep me occupied. Have some potentially interesting contractions going on today. Had what may be a nesting flurry - cleaned the laundry area, swept the stairs to the basement (and part of the basement floor), washed the shower curtain and bath rug, cut the shower curtain down to a length that actually makes sense with our shower, sewed baby wipes, did laundry, cleaned the kitchen, made cookie dough to make cookies easy to bake when the baby comes... Now I feel like I need to slow myself down just in case labor is really around the corner!
Extra rainy day in Seattle today, too (following some nicer ones), and I hear pressure changes bring babies, so fingers are crossed.
Sunshinelove, any news?!?
Thanks for thinking about me, you guys! I appreciate the love . I am here baking this baby who is taking his sweet time with making an entrance. Any day now!
Sunshine - I'm sending you all the go-into-labour vibes I can muster!!!!!!!! I was thinking of you yesterday when I was checking out the Belly Thread and saw your last post (you know, back when you thought it would be your last updated prego picture...? Over a week ago....) I guess your baby is just taking its time, perhaps giving the uterus a nice house-cleaning before departing.
