I'm still here too...I thought for sure I'd have this one a little bit before my due date. I guess that wasn't the plan. I'm 40w1 day as of today...my appt. is tomorrow and they will check me for dialation, then. Can't wait to see if anything is going on...

I didn't think I was going to be this late either. The baby planned otherwise. It is so hard waiting. Hopefully something will start for the rest of us today.

my due date was yesterday, too...

i'm actually really grateful to be here still - in a way it means that i didn't have to get induced beforehand, as i've worried on and off throughout pregnancy. from 37-39 weeks it looked likely since my BP was up and my blood tests showed elevated levels pointing to pre-e... but since the 39 week checkup i've been doing better - BP back to normal, blood tests back to normal, BPP normal, NSTs normal, etc., etc. now my doctors are saying they'd like to induce either thursday/friday, or next monday. i will probably decline this week, but i'm not sure what i would say if i get to next monday without going into labor. am going to try acupuncture this week! don't want to rush the little guy..but....

sending labor vibes to all my end of november due date buddies!

Well, my due date's today and nothing seems to be happening - we're going to all have to jump over to the Dec. forum here shortly. I'm 4 cm dilated as of my MW app't yesterday - she says I'm all ready to go. Now just waiting for baby to be all ready to go!

Yes, still here too. My "official" due date was the 26th. Have an OB appointment tonight so will see what he says then. He's agreed that he'll do an internal exam this time so we know where we're at. I feel like I've been pregnant forever! I've loved being pregnant but now I just want to hold our baby!

Sending you all good labour vibes!

I'm still here. Was due on Sat/Sun (depends on the calendar), so I am 40w2/3d days. Have been having BH contrax, but far apart and not "progressive". So, here I sit...waiting...

Mamas, I hope you all will still post in our November forum when your babes come, even though you will likely jump over to the December forum. We've all been through so much together. It won't be long now.

I had my appt. today...I'm 2cm dialated and 50% effaced. Baby is head down and has dropped a bit but not fully engaged. I will have another appt. on Monday and if that goes well will talk about inducing about 3 days after that. So, either way, in a week I'll have my baby. I really don't want to be induced so I'm hoping I go on my own soon!!!

Well, saw the OB last night. The head is at 0, there's a tonne of amniotic fluid in there and the placenta looks great and he weighs approx. 4kg! I think I took one too many multi-vitamins during the pregnancy! :LOL We're back in on Monday for reassessment and we may look at prostoglandin suppository to kick things along a bit. Sex doesn't seem to be working very well. But who knows what the next few days hold? :

Hope everyone is well and holding in there. Anyone else REALLY cranky?
