I'm still here, just feeling really blah and not up to writing much. I'm 41+1 today and feeling....I don't even know how to describe it. Feeling 41+ weeks pregnant is about all I can say.
I was honestly under the impression that because I knew exactly when I conceived and had it confirmed to the day by 2 ultrasounds, that there was no way I would be late. I guess it really is true that some babies just need to gestate for longer. My midwives have been telling me that 41+1 is the median for first time moms since the first appointment, but I didn't really expect it and certainly had no idea how difficult this "extra" week would feel.
Thankfully my mom is here or I would really be losing my mind. I am trying to focus on the fun things we've gotten to do that would have been harder or impossible if I had already had the baby (like going floating in the river). But I have been crying every day because I just want my baby.
I can empathize! I'm a first-timer as well and my midwife told me she bet I'd go to 41w. I know exactly when in concieved so anytime anyone has suggested that perhaps my timing is off my responses have become increasingly more curt.
