I'm pretty new to these boards.. I like to lurk a lot though.

I'm still pregnant too. 41w 1d and pretty much emotionally shot.

I'm pretty sure the baby is never coming out.

LOL. Thank you, I needed that. Still pg here too. All along I've thought this babe wouldn't be born until the 22nd or 23rd so hopefully this weekend will be it.

I have 10 days left until my due date, but I am still impatient. Both of my boys were born at 37 weeks, so I have never been this pregnant before!

I had a lot of contractions last night that amounted to nothing as usual.

Got absolutely crap for crap sleep-wise... and I had to load myself up with steamed milk (spiked with as much vanilla extract as I can handle, ) to get it. A precious 3 hours all night.

Otherwise I just laid there and thought about how stinky (literally) DH is and how much I want my baby and how much he wants his baby.

Then, when I actually did sleep for that precious 3 hours, I had nightmares about a PORT-A-POTTY where I peed all over myself and got attacked by a tiny dog. Then, to top it all off there was NO SOAP anywhere, and I searched every house in the neighborhood for a bar of soap and couldn't find any.

WTH

So yeah, still pregnant and struggling to exist over here. UGH

40w4d

Yup, still pregnant here....40 wks 3 days.

I go between just giving in to whenever he comes to desperation to get him out!

I woke up and felt like someone had been punching me all night, this belly is too huge now. I have been walking a lot and it's making me sore!

I think we are going to the movies today to keep my mind off being pregnant.

I know how you feel. My belly is sore all the time... when it's not tight from a contraction.

I don't know if the soreness is superficial or the actual muscles of my uterus are sore from "practicing" so much. It's probably a little bit of both. In any event, pelvic tilts and warm baths really help with this.

The only time my belly feels squishy and pleasant is after a bath.

Still pregnant here. Officially past my due date. I'm impatient. I'm bored. I'm hormonal.

I'm still working from home. I think I will officially start my leave on Wednesday or Thursday if I haven't given birth by then.

41W 1D today. Although I had so many contractions last night, they kept me awake. My DH has a terrible cold, so I was worried about him breathing on me. I stayed on my side of the bed on my right side and I think the giblet is now laying over there. She keeps stabbing me in the bladder, which hurts so bad sometimes I actually get a shooting pain down my inner thigh from it.

Good times! (total sarcastic tone)

We are in a heat wave, which is unusual in Seattle. So my house is like 83degrees at 7:30 in the am. I'm going to go stand in the sprinkler, naked, in the tomato garden.

Still pregnant . . . 40.5 weeks. I was sooooooo convinced that this baby would come out sooner. I'm also huge, so I guess I'm going to have another giant baby, just like my first past due sucker.

Oh yeah, and not a single contraction. Not a SINGLE one. My dad keeps calling - "have you have any contractions yet?" None! None!!!

40 weeks 2 days here. What is the deal with this "I'm never going to have this baby" feeling? Ugh. I know 42 weeks is really the marker. And even that is subjective. I know alot of other mamas here have waited alot longer than me, but I REALLY thought I was going to go early, so I feel like I've been ready for a month. Well, cause I have.

LOL! Your dream completely cracked me up (I think it's the tiny dog thing). I have wacky dreams, but lately I'm only remembering a tiny bit of them when I wake up, and if I don't write them down or talk about them right away I forget completely within a half hour or so of being awake.

Well, I'm in the still pregnant club as well. 40 wks 3 days today.

Loose bms again -- starting to think this means nothing, though, as it's seeming like an every other day thing.

Another acupuncture treatment today, but I'm not optimistic. Baby will do whatever s/he wants to do.

I'm having goofy dreams too.

My oldest has just come down with Hand, Foot & Mouth so now I'm hoping the babe stays put for a few more days. Here's hoping I'm immune!

Still pregnant here too! I'm not over due like some, but last night sucked!!! I woke up having these delicious contractions and hoping they were building steam, but... nada.

Meh... who knows, I guess the anticipation is what is killing me. I keep wondering "will today be it?"

I am not crunchy enough for this forum. Everyday I get a little crunchier though! :

Still pregnant also. It is tough waiting. My hormonal brain is obsessed with baby. Oh well. I worked a full day at school today (first one) so that kept me pretty busy. I had painful cramps this morning for like an hour and got excited but they died out at 6 am so I had to get ready for work.
lots of weird nerve tinglies in my legs, haven't had those before but no back pain. must be how she is sitting.

I took a nap and had another crazy dream.

There were giant turtles that were planning on blowing up New York City, so we planned a mission to blow up all the turtles in the river but we were sabotaged by a wild life conservation group. The turtles blew up the city and every one died. :
