First of all, I'm overdue too.
Cycle edd: 9/10, 1st u/s: 9/20, second u/s: 9/16.
I've posted this a couple of times, but it works so well for me... :LOLI changed my ans. machine mess. and started screening my calls last pregnancy and this one. I just start the message with the current date and announce (ONCE only each day) that we're still waiting for baby, lv. mess., blah blah...
People get the info they need, and some actually get the message that all the calls are stressing me out and they back off.
DD was born at 41weeks 1 day after I had my membranes stripped (5 cm dilated at the time and no signs of active labor
I'm planning HB and I have a backup CNM I've been seeing at the hospital. CNM is using the 9/20 edd and she freaked out last week. She scheduled me for an u/s to check amniotic fluid and a nst for today. She doesn't know I'm planning HB (Not exactly legal round here) and I really don't want to go through with these tests and risk getting stuck at the hospital with an induction. I didn't let her check my cervix last week.
I saw my real mw last Wednesday. I was 1cm and baby at 0 station.
I have been hearing about u/s risks and I feel this is unnecessary. I am going to cancel my appointment today. I'm nervous about it. I don't want to deal with the CNM at the hospital
