I'm waiting too. I was due on Wednesday or Thanksgiving Day, depending on whose dates you believe.
I tried to convince myself that this baby would not be likely to come early, but I guess I believe statistics too much.
(I think that 2/3 of all 2nd and following pregnancies the baby comes before the due date.)
My BH went away for most of the last 6 weeks and only started up again occasionally in the last week or so. I've been having more BH the last couple of days, but only 1-2 ctx at most per day that are even remotely painful. My cervix is still way up there, so who knows what it is doing. I've refused checks when I see the OB because I really don't think anything is happening. I saw my OB for my 40 week check on Wednesday and I told him I didn't want to know because it would depress me. He said that it would be much better if he didn't check me, because he is bad at lying!
I'm lucky that I have a really laid-back OB who believes in women's abilities to give birth without messing with things. I switched to him at 6-7 months preggo with dd because I didn't like the answers I was getting from the OB I saw before. I went in on Wednesday for my 40 week check and don't have to go back until next Wednesday at 41 weeks! :-D With dd I had to go in twice a week after 40 weeks, but my OB said that he isn't worried now because dd and I both did fine and she was born 1 week past her due date. :-D And if I go past 41 weeks, I only have to go in every other day. (With dd they wanted me to come in every day. I'm much happier not having to drive there every day! lol )
I was getting really depressed about still being pregnant, but fortunately I'm getting over that. I've been working non-stop for at least 6 weeks (actually it's more like since late August or early September!
: ) trying to get everything done that I want to have done before this baby comes.
: I realized a couple of weeks ago that I wouldn't get everything done even if I go to 45 weeks!
I'm not interested in being preggo that long!
Today we went to buy a dresser for dd and the new baby to share and pick up some things at Babies R Us that I couldn't find at closer stores. All of the baby clothes and things are washed and sorted neatly in rubbermaid bins (boy or gender-neutral and then the girl stuff). I will be so glad when we get the new dresser so I can get the bins out of my living room!
Now if I could just stop being so damn paranoid. I haven't been feeling the baby move much lately and it is freaking me out.
: I've had a really paranoid feeling throughout most of this pregnancy.
