Mares -- it's funny how suddenly patience runs out! I bet you'll go in the next day or so.
Mamablue -- Staying sane while you wait? Did you say your previous ones were 12 days "late"? Does that make waiting easier? I have endless admiration for women who stay zen after their due date.
I saw my midwife today. My blood pressure was a little elevated, which is unusual for me. I really think that the LPN who took it had the wrong size cuff on there, and that it was on way too loose. People don't listen to me, though, even though they know I'm an RN. It's like, if I don't work in that office, whatever I know is worth nothing to them. I'm not an OB nurse, but I've taken a blood pressure or two over the years. Geez. Anyway, they were showing concern, but I knew it was the lousy cuff job. They were talking about sending me to L&D for monitoring, even. They ended up retaking the BP, and it was lower, and there was no protein in my urine or swelling to speak of (I even lost a couple of pounds this week). They did draw blood to rule out HELLP syndrome, and did a NST, which the baby looked great on. I'm honestly glad I got the NST, just because I've been making myself crazy with "what if"s. I feel better knowing that kiddo is doing well in there. I'm glad my practice is paying attention to my condition, too, even if they really just need someone to retrain this particular person on the BP machine. They also double-checked baby's position, and he's still head down. So, we're back to just waiting.
I have an appt next week on 39 weeks 3 days. Part of me is hoping baby comes this weekend (which would be consistent with when my others came), and part of me wants him to wait until the first of the month so I can finish payroll. :-) He'll come when he wants to!
