Hi, also kind of new here (never did get around to joining the ddc, although i wanted to...). I'm 42+1 according to the mws today (or 41+6 according to the calendar), and I'm beginning to get a little stressed. We can only do a hb up to 43 wks here, so I'm feeling the pressure to pop this little one out. I'm drinking the ninth month tea, rubbing verbena oil on the belly, and dtd. I really don't want to do castor oil, but will as a last resort (ie., before having to go the hospital). I have an u/s booked on tues, and while I'm confident that everything is fine, my mw did mention that if they find the amniotic fluid to be low, then that will also rule out hb. So now, I'm stressed about that...maybe it's one of those tests that it's better just not to take, kwim?
Anyway, my sympathies are with all you other overdue mamas. At least we haven't had any heatwaves here in the last couple of weeks, and that is something to be grateful for.
