Ok, HOW late are you? - Page 2

post #21 of 30
I was only 3 days overdue with my first.
I was way off with my dates with my second because I got pregnant so soon while nursing an infant. If I had known I was actually 43+ weeks pregnant before the birth I'm sure I would have lost my mind completely.
Hang in there. You are all doing a wonderful job.

6 days over. I am feeling like I will be pregnant forever too. I broke down and took some homeopathics yesterday but nothing happened anyway. I am planning a hb but if I get to 43 weeks I will be induced in the hospital.

That's what happened during my first pregnancy. We had no idea when my due date really was. But months after she was born, we did the math. Turns out I had her at just about 43 weeks pregnant. I'm glad that I didn't know at the time. It might have driven me crazy.

Boobyfeeder: Neighbors!!! There is also another August mama from Holden so a few of us close together!

Melaya and Vegan: 43 weeks?!?! Please don't say that. I am only surviving on the thought that inevitably I WILL go into labor before next Wed when I hit 42 weeks...SAY IT ISN"T SO!!!

Yeah - I have this total fear of going over 2 weeks (I am 5 days over now) as I would not be allowed to birth at the birthing center, but would have to do a hospital birth - something I want to totally avoid. Come on Baby!!!

This is starting to be my fear, losing my homebirth shot at 42 weeks. My midwife said we'd do stuff to induce near the end of 41, but that sounds like misery as well. It's so frustrating to be on a timeline.

Yeah, I think that's what's going on with my baby. I'm 6 days past, and I'm ready to kill the next person that calls and says "are you still pregnant?" These are people I told I will call within 24 hours of delivery. Gosh!! Do they think I'm lying or something?

I was sure I would go into labor early, everyone in my family, and my husband's family has gone at least 12 days early. I've been expecting this kid since 37 weeks, and I feel like I'm going out of my mind!!:

My poor husband, people at work keep saying to him "when are you going to have that baby?" like he's the one giving birth or something. We are getting more stressed out by the day.

I had a long talk with my baby this morning and I told her that it is safe out here, that I will protect her. Evidently she's worried about the germs in the sink from the dishes I've left for the past 2 weeks, because after the long talk, I had this really strong impression I should do the dishes, and clear off my desk (who knows what could be hiding and possibly growing under that stack of papers?)
I'm off to clean.
I hope it works.

I'm five days past my due date, but I'm not feeling that bad about it at this point. My mom has been here for a week and she leaves on Sunday, so I would like to have the baby before she goes. Otherwise she'll be making another trip up from FL to see the baby sometime next month. DS is having a great time with her, so it would be great if he could go hang out with her during the birth.

I have a prenatal today, so I guess I'll be asking my midwife how late she's comfortable with me birthing at home.

5 days late and feel like i'm in the movie Groundhog Day. Wake up 6 times a night, disappointed each time to feel fine. Wake up in the morning, disappointed to feel completely normal. Go through the motions, get to work, mark another day off my pregnancy calendar, deal with irritating remarks, wait to go home and do it all over again. This is hell.

Plus, my favorite midwife, the most experienced one with the best midwife mojo, is on call this week, and I think the least experienced is on call next week. Although I like her very much, i'd still like my favorite. And my doula is leaving town next Tuesday. Talk about pressure! Being overdue sucks the hairy bird. I'm starting to lose hope.

I am with you ladies! I am 6 days over today and feel normal (well, as normal as a 9+month pregnant woman can feel). My favorite MW is on call over the weekend and has been for most of the week, so I am hoping this weekend will bring something. I am trying not to get my hopes up, though. I am thinking I should just go ahead and schedule my NST and U/S for next week as I just can't see that there is an end in sight! My mom is here as well, with plans to stay as long as I need her, but I feel guilty about it! She is a teacher and was due to start class with her students today. She has a sub for today and monday, but we are totally playing it by ear for the rest. She loves her job, loves the first few weeks of school, so I hate it that she is here playing the waiting game with me. I do need her here to take care of my 2 year old, though. She has been here since Aug 4, sitting around, waiting for a baby!

I really HATE this limbo!
