I am starting to go a bit crazy here. My last day of work was last Friday. Tomorrow I will be 41 weeks. My other kids were born in my 38th and 39th week and so I didn't even entertain going late this time. I am planning a homebirth and the midwife will attend up to 42 weeks, occasionally later. I have been using evening primrose oil for a couple weeks now have had acupuncture twice this week and NOTHING. Going for a short hike just about daily. Baby seems to be in a good position.
I am feeling stir crazy. I am trying to stay busy but also not be too far from home since I was already a few cm dilated and effaced last week and my other two labors were pretty fast. I am also trying to figure out at what point to involve a doctor in my care-- my MW can do a non-stress test and order an u/s. If nothing happens before then and baby looks fine, do I wait until 42 weeks to touch base with an ob? I am afraid if I involve one early this next week, I will get a lot of pressure for a hospital induction, which I am not really thrilled with.
Anyone else overdue or have any advice?
