I'm just wondering if I should let myself obsess about it or just be confident that when its time it'll all work out? I'm not even a week overdue yet, so worrying too much is just silliness, right?
They midwife did a non-stress test thursday, because she was worried when the babies HR was 110. The test was done and she seemed reassured that all was well, baby's base HR is 120. She ordered an amniotic index, which I didn't want to do, but since she seemed concerned I accepted it. No one's called, so I guess all is well.
So should I be actively doing something or should I just be going about my daily business? What would you/did you do?
Did you know that the length of the average first pregnancy is 41 weeks (not 40!). That's average... means some are longer and some are shorter.
My friend/coworker went to 41 weeks with #1 and 42 weeks with #2. Her mom had six babies and five of them were 'late'. Some women just carry their babies longer... or maybe it's just that they O later in their cycle etc.

I send you gentle rocking-chair moments of journaling these final days.
Sending you labor vibes. Your baby just needs to "cook" a wee bit longer.
