Anyone else with NO action?

post #1 of 36
Thread Starter 
I was just wondering- those of us who are still pregnant- are you, like me, getting NO signs of labor?

Somebody scared me today talking about a 44 week pregnancy and how it would be funny if I went to the end of November.

I didn't laugh. :

Zip, nada, nothing! I am 40 weeks tomorrow, my official EDD is Sunday so I'm not too stressed about it. The doctor had me do a NST today which didn't show much. I don't think I'm dilated or effaced at all either !

We'll get there!

Me! I'm 41 weeks today but I've been feeling sick since yesterday so I'm hoping it's a sign.

Hang in there ladies!

My due date is tomorrow and I'm really not feeling anything. I just keep repeating to myself "baby will come when baby is ready" and remembering how grateful I am for being able to even be pregnant, and that when my babe arrives all the waiting will be worth it.

And I'm trying to find lots to do.

Hey there - I'm not feeling anything that unusual either (some BH, some crampiness, nothing painful or regular tho), but my EDD isn't until wednesday. I think reading all of these threads full of october mamas birthing babies has made me impatient, and I'm working on just relaxing these last few days (or I guess, few/two weeks!?) of pregnancy & trying not to go nuts.

DH and I are so eager to meet our little one, but we also realized the other day how valuable these last days of just the two of us are (except of course that there is a very very large baby in my belly!!) ... so we are staying positive and appreciating our time together.

I've finally stopped going to work - the subway commute was getting awful. Now I am just at home, puttering around, doing some work and going for walks, trying to stay calm. I am not going to pretend it is easy!!

I am 12 days overdue and nothing is happening here. Contractions on and off all day for days, but not changing in duration or intensity. My last baby was 13 days late and I think this one wants to beat his record! Off to take a walk on the beach and try to convince this babe that today would be a fine day to be born.

You may not want to hear from someone whose wait is over, but I had NOTHING going on except for braxton hicks until labor actually started. Then bam, all of a sudden contractions that were never less than 5 minutes apart. There is hope!

That is encouraging. Thanks mama

Nada here. Just BH that seem stronger... and I'm depressed that there has been no cervical change in 2.5 weeks.

me! totally without action here

my edd was today. i consented to check to find a high, closed cervix had a lot of backache and crampiness yesterday, and the BHs are getting stronger, but nothing else going on. beaker is very squiggly lately and i think it wants out!

2 very strong contractions tonight!!!

...But then they went away and nothing since. Sigh. At the very least it might have dialated or "ripened" the cervix though, eh?

Maybe. Just thought I'd share.

That is encouraging. Thank you! My mom was actually encouraging me about the same thing...She said labor just STARTED with her- there was no leading up to it.

I had a couple contractions earlier! Unfortunately, I also got a severely sprained foot I took a tumble off of a curb and thought that I broke a bone or two in my foot so we went to the ER to have it checked out. No broken bones, just a major sprain and a gold-ball sized swollen spot. They made me go to L&D to be monitored for a bit, and that took FOREVER because they were way understaffed. Sigh.

I hope the babeh waits a few days now so my foot can heal! Right now, I can't put any weight on it at all!

This may sound awful, but you're a derby girl (right?) so you'll get it (i hope?):
Just be happy that you're off your skates from injury when you already have to be off of your skates! Think of it as multitasking.

Hahaha, too true!

I'm now 9 days past my due date and except feeling sick Thursday night, I have no signs. My mom said she had no signs that labor was approaching when she had me. She just started having contractions and I was born 5 hours later. I hope that happens to me tomorrow.

My EDD is Oct. 31st....I am so tired of being pregnant! Nothing is happening. When my midwife checked me 2 weeks ago she said I was 1cm dialated and 25% effaced and everything was low. Went back this week and I am still dialated 1 and my cervix tilted and not as low anymore. She didn't make it seem bad, but I have no idea what to expect. I am frustrated! I hope I have this baby soon!
