Check out the 40+ weekers club in the March DDC. There are a few March's that are already overdue also.
Because the doctor my midwife works with has a 42 week rule, I never thought to ask because I thought I'd never make 42 weeks. Felt I'd go over, but not 42 weeks
. Next time my husband and I are going to fudge on the period date. We are both comfy going to 44 weeks. It's not at all what we want. Personally, I'd be cool with just UCing this time because of all of this, but DH is not there yet, which I respect. His last child (he was married before) was a very traumatic birth for him, which he's still working though. Thankfully with the Bradley classes and his own research and learning, he has seen the little things that lead to it being so much worse than it needed to be, but he's still needing to have a positive birth experience before he handles it himself. I think we are actually tentatively planning a UC next pregnancy.
No problems, besides swelling, and a sometimes elevated bp, but that's only sometimes. Baby is actually more active lately. Actually had a non stress test yesterday and all is well. The nurse was kind of shocked that I was so far along! But said the baby was very happy in there. I actually feel guilty making the baby come before it's ready. We just feel kind of trapped in this rut now. We really like our midwife, but, due to being in Missouri and stuff, her hands are really tied.
