So today is my due date & I feel fine. Hard to believe I could go into labor at any time. I am 1 cm dilated & 25% effaced. However, other than the fact that someone seems to have stuck a watermelon down my shirt, I do not feel 9 months pregnant. How many of you have gone into labor without any warning? I feel like this is not going to happen. I really need to have the baby this week because my MW's have me on a time clock & then I am on my own. Please reassure me that I will have this baby. I hardly have any BH contractions anymore. Baby seems content to stay where he is. My only choice to speed this up was to have my membranes swept & even that can't be done because I am not yet dilated enough. I keep telling DH that maybe we just need to knock on the little guy's door , but DH refuses to DTD now that he knows I am dilated. He is all freaked out & wants no part in it. I'm not much in the mood either, but if it could get the baby out, I could "suffer" through it. DH & I took a 2 hr walk today & I sat on my birth ball for half the day & I would think I would be exhausted, but I can't even sleep, all I think about is having this baby. I try not to think about it because as they say a watched pot never boils, but I am going nuts. I have never made it to my due date before so this is new to me. Anyone else due or overdue want to share your fears and feelings on the matter?
