I'm overdue as well (EDD was 8/23). At first I was all gung ho in trying natural induction methods, but lately I've decided that our immediate approach is to try and relax and let things progress on their own.
We've been having pre-labor contractions for about 2 weeks now. They started at about 45 minutes apart and last night's bought of five hours were all 10 minutes apart. I've had a few more pick up this morning, but I'm trying not to time them right now and just focusing on welcoming the baby and letting her know how much we want to see her and hold her.
Even my nearly 13 y/o DS is cheering on his little sister wanting her to be born soon.
My midwife suggested a cervical massage (aka stripping the membranes) as she usually has good success with them, but I decided we'd try that at 41 weeks if nature hasn't already answered the call.
We are feeling some pressure because we're planning a VBAC homebirth but are also seeing an OB. The OB is really fabulous and much less medically oriented than most, but there will come a time when even he can't allow the baby to go more than 42 weeks. I'm trying to ignore that fact, though, and focus on visualizing a positive homebirth.
