Yep, totally. I am 4 days more pregnant than ever as of today and no signs of anything.
I have some residual stress and fears that I have been trying very, very, very, very hard to release but finding it very difficult. I had some serious contractions the other day and then those thoughts just popped in my head and I could hardly breath. Then I worry that I won't be able to release enough to let it happen.
My stress is for after the birth. I live in a homebirth unfriendly state- I will have to go to the OB afterward for a rH shot. He gave me no hassle with my last birth(told him the baby came too quick) but I am worried that he might this time. Last time the ped's nurse seriously hassled me- althought he ped was cool and being the walking spectacle in the ped's office was not fun. Then the fallout from dh's family for our decision. Oh, and our house burned down 2 days before she was born- so I have some PTS from all of that and try as I might I am having a hard time breaking that thought cycle. Logically I know that the house is extremely unlikely to burn down again- so I shouldn't have that stress. But perhaps the OB will catch on to the fact that I am purposely doing hbs and give me hassle. Or what if I have the babe today and cannot get in to the OB for a shot- I need to look up how long I have to get it. I do NOT want to risk having to go the ER to get a shot w/ a newborn baby = that is specifically why I have the backup OB he is the ONLY decent dr in town. Anyway, I am not even post dates yet, due on Sunday, but have had a few practice runs and I wonder if not for that stress if labor would have already came.
