I'm 42 weeks today and just feeling depressed. I feel like everyone in the world has their baby and all I have is a huge belly. Dumb but I just feel so down. DW and I are going out to do errands and try to keep ourselves sane. Lots of strong, regular, yet not pain contractions yesterday until about midnight then nothing.
It's all my fault. I take all the blame.
Back in 2004 when Beth was my doula she said "oh, you're due Sept 2, no problem! You'll have a baby well before my wedding." First I pulled her out of her bachelorette party because I finally went into labor, and then she had to leave halfway through my labor to go to her wedding rehearsal. My kid was born the day before her wedding. Less than 24 hours, I believe.
Now it's 2007, and I, without EVEN thinking of the repercussions, say to Beth, "Oh, you'll have a baby for sure before we go to Europe!".
And we leave for Europe on Monday at 9 AM.
Beth, I am SO, so sorry. This is all my doing. : xoxo jen
And here I am, completely jealous of you all. My DH is in the ICU with pneumonia that's not getting better, a due date of Friday 3/30, no names chosen, and praying, praying, praying that I will be joining you two weeks past my EDD in the hopes that DH will be there!
Loads of blessings, and learning on the job.
Are there any left that are still out this far? I'm 41w5d today and am feeling mentally and emotionally exhausted just wanting to hold my baby in my arms. Legally I can't birth at the birth center past 42w, so we will need to make a decision as to what we are comfortable with if I'm not in labor by Sunday. (Just more added stress at this point.)
I definitely wasn't prepared for this. Everyone (and I mean EVERYONE) in my family goes at least one week early. People are changing flights and visits because we all just ~knew~ she would be here by now.
I started acupuncture yesterday, and had my midwife do a sweep and strip. Saturday brings the joy of castor oil and more acupuncture.
Do we even have March mamas left to go?
