42+ week moms.... - Page 2

post #21 of 126
My first was a 44 weeker (45.5 by midwife's count) and my second was 42 weeks.

They were both big boys - and totally healthy all the way around.

I'm hoping yours gets moving soon! Sending you good, fast labor vibes!

Sending you labor vibes too : I hope I can have your patience down the road, should I need it.

A friend of mine/fellow doula went to 43w with her last babe. No problems, other than the annoying people calling every 2h for a report

Maybe you could change your sig to "expecting someone new in JUNE"

: i've been there...here's hoping your baby comes soon!

Haven't been quite that overdue myself but I can imagine...keep up the fun stuff, and just tell everyone you are hoping the baby is eighteen pounds, that's why you are staying pregnant. That'll shut 'em up.

yeah, because you know that the moment you do that, you'll go into labor.

tho i just saw in your other thread that you lost some plug, it's sounds like things are moving along so here are easy labor vibes to you.

Beautiful hbac at 42w2d and that was only after I coaxed him out with some castor oil. Hang in there.

Well you know me - every pg, all 7 of them 42 weeks +. 1 was covered in vernix 16 days past his edd! Felt like he was wearing a towel lol. So no problems with post dates.

You can have some fun with this. Go shopping and when people ask when you are due you can tell them 2 weeks ago. Then a little while later you can clutch your belly and say, Oh No Its Time! And totally freak them out - cause you know when you are late that babies just fall out LOL

Or when someone asks you "are you still pg." You can say No, this is the next one! lol

I am so not nice

My 42+ weeker was my fastest, easiest labor and birth, by far. Wishing you the same, whenever it happens!

I will be 42weeks 1 day tomorrow.

OMG!! Seriously, even AFTER sending out a very nice update email to my well meaning friends that I will not be answering my phone because I am trying to stay relaxed and stress free, they STILL call me 3 times a day!!!!! and leave messages saying they just want to know what's going on...obviously nothing!!! Really that is what is making this the hardest, nothing else. I just wish we didn't have "due dates". Sorry, just had to let that out.

So, anyhow, I understand. either way, our happy, healthy, perfectly cooked babies will be here soon!!

42 weeks + 5 days here. It was really hard, especially being #2. Everyone kept telling me the 2nd baby comes earlier :

He came late, but the labor was quick(6hrs) and pretty easy as far as those things go,

Hang in there! Turn off the phone and relax

Angela hasn't posted at all on the second page! Here's hopin' that something's happening for her.... or at the very least she's off relaxing somewhere. :

I am a Ten Month Mama myself.
44 weeks for baby #1.
43 weeks for #2.
Spontaneous labour both times, both nice, uncomplicated births and healthy babies. They really do come out eventually.
Best of luck to you.
