Ok this morning, wake up liquid running down legs. Get all excited. Nope wasn't my water, probably the primrose oil I put in last night *sigh* To add insult to injury, I've had less action today than I've had in the last week!! : : :

So reassure me, no one stays pregnant forever right?

I know I sure feel like I will be pg forever but I have to remind myself that baby will come when baby is ready. Maybe your no action is a "calm before the storm" Stay encouraged and know that you will see your lil one very soon! Big Hugs and Birth Vibes your way!
Good Luck!

PS
Just think soon we will be reading your birth story!

no one stays pregnant for ever!! try to enjoy the last few days with free hands while you can.. if you can.. i remember how much i actually missed having a pregnant belly and how easily my body did everything for that baby while he was inside of me.. and then all of a sudden i was very empty and very very busy.. but your time will come soon!

Thanks mamas. I need the encouragement right now. I have to say I'm so glad I'm having a hb because I can see how easily manipulated I'd be right now (btw not talking about any other mamas only me ) I guess this is like the last leg of a race. I just need to hang in there but poop this is hard!!

98% of mamas give birth before 42 weeks. The longest I've ever heard of was 45 weeks and 3 days, and that was in the 50s. 45% (approximately) give birth before their due date.
Elephants, on the other hand, are at "full term" for a whopping 3 months... can you imagine how frustrated they must feel??

I had the same thing happen to me last night when I sneezed. For the same reason too... EPO. Since I thought my water broke I reached down to feel how much liquid and it was all sticky so I got a little freaked out until I went to the bathroom and turned the light on and realized it was the gel capsule part of the epo that had dissolved.

At least we're not elephants (though some of us feel like we are : )

Wow, I sure know where you're coming from! I mean, *of course* we can't stay pregnant forever, but it sure feels like that...to me too!

Hee Hee, I totally feel like an elephant!

You know the first time I heard that about elephants, I thought to myself, "If I ever hear about angry elephants on the rampage, I'll COMPLETELY understand."

Thanks for the stats darlin. Those actually do help.

My eldest was a wee bit late... I completely geeked out trying to stay sane. Hmm, do we see a pattern emerging here?
