I am now 2 days past my EDD and no baby. How annoying.

I know that I could be facing another two weeks yet and that is even more annoying.

About a week and a half ago I had 5 hours of contractions that almost sent us to the hospital, but since then, NO SIGNS of impending labor. I know I have no control over any of this, and I know I can't be pregnant forever, but I am still annoyed. Poor DH tried to "prepare me" last night for the idea that we may have another two weeks to go and I pretty much bit his head off: "I know that!! Do you think I don't know that? It isn't helping me to think about that!" I feel bad for snapping at him. He even had the good sense not to take it personally... just scratched my back and stood next to me quietly for a few minutes.

Who else is in the same boat? Commiserate with me, or impress me with your awesome attitude!!!

I'm not there yet but hang in there, sometimes no signs mean nothing, and an hour from now you could go into labor. I do hope its sooner rather than later for you just because the waiting is hard!

I've told my little one he is NOT allowed to go to 42 weeks because that puts us at January 1, and I want him born this year I have GD too though and I also don't want the induction pressure so I'd be happy if he was born any time after this weekend. So far I see no signs of compliance.

Hey, don't be sad there's no signs of impending labor. I've had 'em for a week, and still no baby. I would much rather skip the prelabor part.

Sorry you're still waiting. I *really* don't want to go past my due date either.

Yep, signs don't always mean something is about to happen. With both DS's their labor come out of absolutely nowhere.
With DD I think I lost most/some of my mucus plug a day or two before, then sporadic contrax throughout the evening before.

I'm not due till the 12th, so can't commiserate yet. I did go 3 days over my EDD with DS2, but since I had both of my others exactly 5 days before my EDD's I felt like I was 8 days over
I was starting to feel like I was never gonna have that baby!
Silly, especially considering some of the Mamas around here that have gone 42+ weeks!

I'm not past my due date yet, will be 38 weeks friday, but I have been having real ctx for about a month now. So of course I think " any day now". Well, I was. I've come to terms that I won't deliver soon. Now I say to everyone that I will be pg for forever, to not sit around and wait, bc they will be waiting for quite some time. lol

hang in there, terra! i'm right with you -- 40 weeks today

finally, i'm ready for this babe to come (though i still have to do some grocery shopping today ). dd1 was a week early, dd2 was 3 days late, so we'll see what this one decides... but i hope he/she doesn't wait too much longer (i haven't even had a hint of a contraction yet).

If I make it to midnight tonight, I"ll be past my due date. So far, each of my babies has gotten a little bit later than the previous one. My first was three days before her due date and my second was three days past his due date. I was kind of hoping this one would arrive on his/her due date, but it doesn't look like that's going to happen. My next theory is that this one is waiting for the 9th to arrive. Each of my other kids have a 9 in their birthday (29th and 19th). THe only problem with that is that the 9th is almost a week away.

I recently changed my username, but I still say "Hello" to all those who know me in real life! Hi P, S, T and K!

I was due 5 days ago. I'm officially a "December Mom" now. Just waiting and trying not to throw things at people who ask "WHEN are you going to have that baby?!".

Um, IF I knew, I would tell you.

remember 40 weeks is only a rough estimate and the average is actually closer to 41 (and is OVER 41 weeks for first time moms) I wish they wouldn't even give us forty week due dates because it just makes people so nervous.

If it wasn't for the GD and resulting pressure to possibly induce if I go overdue I'd be more inclined to wait patiently. Well that and running into christmas/new years/next tax year, SO inconvenient of baby not to be conceived at a better time of year for patience! (this was SUPPOSED to be a spring baby, we were only TALKING about TTC)

I'm in the same boat. And I'm tired of everyone saying, 'Oh its probably just Braxton-Hicks then." No. I had those too. This is not that.

I'm 39 weeks tomorrow so I know I could still have 3 more weeks, but I just can't even see past this weekend. I would LOVE to go this weekend. Please please please. My midwife had to do the ugly duty of scheduling my 'induction date' today at the hospital in case nothing happens. At least I managed to get her to schedule it for 15 days past my due date, even though hospital policy is 12. She was quite happy not to schedule it for Christmas Eve or Christmas so Boxing Day it is!

Anyway, so yeah. Signs don't seem to mean anything. At least not here.

Hey Terra, me too. Today's my due date. I guess having gone through this before (DS was 40+6), I know it can happen all of a sudden. And it will happen . So I've been trying to prepare myself for a long haul. But last night I had mild contractions and diarrhea all night (fun), so now I'm on pins and needles wondering if it will happen today, watching the clock and all that. I kind of prefer the state I was in yesterday when I was just waiting.

Anyway... my best advice (if I have any) is to only look at it as one day at a time (not 2 weeks). Go to bed each night like you're going to have the baby tomorrow, so at least you'll be rested. And give yourself little things to do each day - nice lazy things - that you wouldn't be able to do otherwise. I don't know if you are still working or not, but if not try lazing around the house a bit. If you're bored of lazing about, find a small project you can complete in a day. That's what's working for me anyway. I've been on maternity leave since monday, and it's way bizarre to have this much time on my hands.

I can't wait to hear about your birth, tomorrow or two weeks from now. Take care!

Hi, I'm a November due date mama moved over to December. I'm now 11 days late but its par for the course for me. My first three children were between 11-19 days late. Trying to be patient and realize all the people bugging me about this little one just love me and are excited to meet him or her.

I think tonight would be a great time to have baby. But its up to the little one.

Ahhh, I knew I wasn't alone!! Thanks for joining November moms... I need the perspective!!

I was kind of hoping she was holding out to be born on the birthday of the King of Thailand - as that is one of the luckiest days of the year to be born in Thailand. That would be today (December 5th). Still no signs, but my pelvis bones ache more every day...

Actually, last night we went to a movie, during which I had some belly tightening accompanied by sharp pains in my vaginal canal, maybe cervix? I don't know. What are those about? Normal, I am assuming. I thought maybe it meant stuff was opening up, but no signs of that - mucus-wise anyway.

I'm actually due near the end of Dec (just 37 weeks today) but I always go over here. The first was 41.5 weeks, the others went 2-3 days past the due date.

What I can say here is what I've found helpful is to find that place, dive into yourself emotionally, spiritually, physically. Don't answer the phone for those relatives who keep on asking questions, give your DH instructions not to discuss any people's inquiries into "did she have the baby yet?" Enjoy the last days of your pregnancy. Set up the tripod, take some beautiful pictures of you and your pregnant body outside. Take some time to take a nice warm bath. Really savor the thoughts you have at the end, and take some time to focus on it. Embrace these last few days of your pregnancy.

Because, really this all passes. I know it seems long now, but in a blink of an eye you will be holding your baby. When life's momentum starts going time passes so quickly...

Thank you, I needed that! I'm due today and have been feeling REALLY impatient. I think this is what I need to do.

aack!!! I'm 41 weeks. I can't believe it... I was actually entertaining the notion that I might go early. What a bunch of crap!

My emotions are a crazy rollercoaster. I alternate between being completely as peace with "when she comes, she comes" and enjoying all my free time, to being teary and dejected that she isn't here yet.

Part of the issue is that my parents and siblings are coming to visit us right before Christmas, the later she arrives, the less babymooning/recovery time we will have. I was really counting on having 2 or 3 weeks.

On Saturday doctor did an internal and said she expected I would go within the next three days... well, now it is Tuesday. I lost a HUGE chunk of plug on Sunday morning and I lost even more Monday and this morning... how much of that stuff is there..? I swear I've lost about a softball sized amount by now.

I feel exactly like you, a rollercoaster of emotions! My main worries are also Christmas arriving and being a first time mom not used to things yet. Also, people are stupid and keep telling me my baby is going to be too big now that I'm 40 +2.

I went to a moms night out at a pottery place on Friday and the lady working was like "when are you due? last week?! :" Jerk : I then had to tell her I was only 38 weeks and she's like "oh, wow!" w/ this look like I'm the biggest whale on two feet who she couldn't imagine could get any larger :

Why not ask, when are you due? why the rude comment after that?! Is this okay in your mind to tell someone? and if so why, lady? Grrr...

Mamas aren't even due yet and we get the crap...who really needs that after your due date comes and goes?! Some people.

I'm "due" tomorrow. But the u/s gave a date of 12/16. And accoding to me, I don't think my LMP was as early as 3/6. BUT, my doctor uses his head, not machines, and we all know how well a man's head works.

My daughter came at 38 weeks 6 days so I've been expecting a baby since then!

S-d D which made them three. M grew lonely, and now there's baby D.

That is TOTALLY rude! She must have some unresolved issues to feel like she needs to be rude to people. And she's probably like that to everyone! I'm sorry Leslie!

Hi, I am having my third and I had preterm labor with both of my other kids and I felt lucky to make it to 36 wks with my first and 38 with my second. My second at 38 wks was 9 pounds 6oz. I just had a feeling from the very begining of this pregnancy that this would be a November baby. I was hoping for the 28th (both of my boys were born on the 28th), but no luck. I even had tons of cts at 32 to 34 wks but now almost nothing. I have to admit, with my history I never CONSIDERED going overdue. I now have a seperated pubic bone and am really wondering how big this baby is going be. I am just trying to be patient but not being able to move is really making that hard. I can't go about life as usual and I am bored and in pain.

Sorry to complain but I really need to vent.

I'm only 38 weeks today, but am really struggling with patience right now. I truly want her to come when she's ready....but I want her to be ready within the next week, please and thank you!

I can't even complain too much- I am not suffering too badly, although of course I am tired of it by now. Heck, I even RAN several times at a dog competition this past weekend (and figured it wuld put me into labor-nope!)

I think part of my problem is that on all of the other boards I am on, EVERY SINGLE woman, even those who are due WEEKS after me, are having contractions, dilating, losing plugs, and going early. And for me, nada. Well, my MW's don't do internals, so I could be dilated some and not know it. I am trying to tell myself that my body just handles pregnancy so well.....(no criticism to those who are having signs, I'm just trying to boost myself up, ya know!) And with DS I really had nothing until the moment my water broke, so it's not like I should be expecting anything. I think I just thought I'd be more aware of things this time around.

And my more real concern is my DH's paternity leave and how going after my EDD (12/24) or even worse getting into 2009, will mess everything up- they are not being very nice about things right now.

I am OK not going this week, but after this weekend I think I will be VERY grumpy about it. Come on, full moon!

Kelly, wife to DH, mom to Caden Reese (10-2-06), Tessa Brynn (12-26-08 ), and Maddox Quinn (7-16-11). Fur-mama to Finnegan, Ripley, Raisin (my little kitty amputee) and Kimchi. 748/2011, 2028/2012-I did it!! 2023/2013-Again!!! 404/2014

I'm 40w3d and facing an induction b/c of GD. I feel your anger. i've had BH. that's it. just a few. woo. i can't get squat going with any of the natural techniques. as i said in the chat thread, i am getting super bitter about everyone going early when i haven't and we really need me to go into labor NOW.

I had my 40 week MW appointment yesterday. They scheduled me for a NST and ultrasound on Tuesday if I haven't gone by then. I made it through this whole pg with no tests or ultrasounds and it comes down to this? My thoughts are that I've been sick with some kind of stomach bug these last few days so that's why my body hasn't gone into labor yet. I'm feeling 100% better today, so maybe that will help? And I'm TOTALLY banking on the full moon tomorrow...

I'm in the same boat as you! Well sort of. I went for my appointment this morning and it was a mess. Not only was I there for 1 1/2hrs while my DD and DH waited, but I was getting told that I'd "have" to be induced at some point. And what made it worse was that I couldn't wait until 42 weeks, because that's when babies automatically die you know, at 42 weeks my doctor wasn't on call. He's only on call the 12th and 18th, or the 25th, which is past the time limit. I'm not quite sure who set the time limit. So he tried to tell me that if I didn't go by the 18th, what's 5 days (the remaining time for my time limit) going to do, but in the next breath we can't wait until the 25th, because 1 day makes a difference. I love how 5 days doesn't make a difference when it fits in the schedule, but 1 day does.

I went over to the hospital to do the NST, which took another 1/2-1hr. Like being pregnant means I have nothing else to do.

40+3 here and feeling more impatient than I want to be because the birth centre is close to risking me out for pregnancy induced hypertension. Frankly I'm really angry about it because my blood pressure is sooooooo borderline (120/80 from 130/60) and I'm testing negative to everything else and I've had the baby monitored several times and we're both fine.

Have had several induction acupuncture sessions and am doing everything else under the sun to get this labour happening naturally but the fact is, the babe just isn't ready.

Anyway...who else is still here post edd?

One gorgeous solstice babe 12/08, two smitten mothers - mothering consciously with conscience and compassion. Birth & Postnatal Doula. Student Midwife. Expecting #2 November '12.

41 weeks as of 3 hours and 47 minutes ago.


I've been getting some contraction action since 1:30ish, but they're not quite long enough ( I mean they're long enough for me, but too short for me to feel like I need to call the hospital. ) Hopefully . . . I don't want to ruin it by saying it out loud.

According to LMP, I was due yesterday; according to early u/s, I'm due today. So I'm right there but still nothing to get worried about yet. Still, I really thought this baby was coming early - so much more pre-stuff than with my last baby for the last 3 weeks. And we're all (esp my daughter) ready for him to come out; I don't mind going late, but I really want him to come before xmas and preferably before the weekend. Once xmas hits, all my support people are out of town (except my partner of course) so that would really suck. But I'm pretty confident it's any day now; though I've also been saying that for the last week. We'll see.
