I'm right there with you mama! 41 weeks and absolutely no signs of impending labor. Thank you for this thread though! It's good to remember that it 40 weeks is just a #!

But I'm really hoping something happens for both of us soon!

Yeah, I'm hoping something happens for you both soon too. I feel guilty because I escaped a week or two of prodromal labour :

No baby, no SERIOUS labor... Trying all available inducing methods tonight... pray/send good vibes... I am getting discouraged!

Discouraged is good. At one point with Skye I found myself looking at kitchen knives and wondering just how much a DIY caesarean would hurt... you have to get truly fed up before baby comes out, sometimes.
How's today?

Today not good! Leaking, slight fever, and hands and feet are turning red and swelling... Going to go get some tests done.

My choice would be to wait and do nothing... But walking is becoming difficult and I am concerned with the size of the baby... All previous babies were 9 lbs.
Quit walking for a day or so... rest! I'm a California girl myself and hoping I can get back there to be a LM someday! Maybe Lassen would be a good place to go! I looked on the CA Licensing website and I found three midwives in two surrounding counties. I don't know if they could directly help you, but they may know of someone in your area... it's worth a couple of phone calls at least. The two LM's in Shasta County are Dena Jean Burgess 2672 Belladonna, Redding and Nora Ellen McNeal, 2325 Chestnut St., Redding.

hope this helps some

I wish it could... but to get induced, you have to have a dr.s orders... And at only 1 cm DILATED I wasn't able to have my water broken... But all that is water under the bridge!!!

Thanks for working so hard!
