Is it me or is it getting slow around here? Tons of births and then it has really died down lately! So, any volunteers

I am ready and waiting here- 40w4d but the lil' one seems quite content. However, I told her today would be a good day- I have the house in tiptop shape, all laundry is caught up, I got a full nights sleep and I even shaved my whole entire legs yesterday(which is pretty impressive if you ask me )!

I'll officially be ready tomorrow, not that it really means anything. I have an appointment I need to get to today and then laundry and vacuuming to do. Then I'm ready. But then my EDD isn't until Tuesday so....

I would love to help out by adding a baby to our DDC! But I'm feeling rather depressed about it now. I can hardly believe I made it this far pregnant...
I'll be 42 weeks on Sunday. I'm not very happy about that at all ...

Mama to dd born 7/2005, dd born 12/2007 and dd born 11/2009.

40w 2d here and not quite ready to help yet.
Once I get my house cleaned and laundry all done and put away for the millionth time in prep for baby then maybe I can help.

I'm due this weekend, and my body is doing NOTHING!!! Barely even braxton hicks anymore. Last weekend I had a day of contractions, but they went away. Nothing much since. I feel less pregnant now than I did a month ago!

I have claimed Nov.22 as my due date. My bday is March 22, and DH is April 22. So root for me to have this baby on Nov.22!!!
And good luck to the rest of you ladies! Let's get these babies out so we can hug them already

I've been telling this baby to arrive on Sunday November 22nd. So, if it complies, we should have one then.

41 1/2 weeks. 3 cm dilated, 50% effaced. It's like I've been walking around in labor for the last month and a half. I'm laying in bed right now talking to her about how much fun we're going to have when she comes out. I'm also singing a lot, hoping that it sounds so awful she'll want to jump ship.

Anyway, I'm having this baby by Saturday darnit. And Beppie too!

I am ready - house is clean, my sister is here until Tuesday of next week and can wrangle #1 son during the birth, I am all caught up at work, and DH doesn't have to teach next week, I am 2 cm, 50%, "ripe'n'ready" as the avocado stickers at the supermarket say. I am thinking late Sunday night/early Monday morning would be awesome timing. We shall see if the baboo gets the memo...

Dh has to do a funeral on Monday or Tuesday, so I'm guessing baby will decide to appear in the middle of that. After all, ds1 came on Labour day, and ds2 came on his due date while the doctor happened to be at the hospital doing rounds anyway, so this babe has to do something to keep up. I'm only 39 weeks, though, so not too worried yet. Another week of "Haven't you had that baby yet?" and I will probably be ready.

The rest of you can go ahead and get started, though.

Hugs to all you overdue mamas. I remember the frustration with ds1.

Well, this morning's "harvest" of babies makes me think your wish has been fulfilled, at least for more MDC babies!!!!

I woke up and checked and was like "holy cow!" when I saw all the new baby posts.
