I'm 37+1 today and I had my midwife at home appointment and the doula is all set in place and everything's a go. Now the baby just needs to come. He's firmly in my pelvis and I am uncomfortable and unable to sleep. He needs to be born. ahhhh!
My midwife assures me that he will be born.
ahhhh... soon I hope!

My daughter was born at 37w1d, so ever since then I've really not known what to do with myself. I am 37w5d now with no signs of anything going on. Everyday seems so long waiting!

Don't hold your breath. I'm 41 weeks 3 days today, and thought I'd be done by now since the last one came at 38 weeks. We need distractions!

I'm going crazy here too. I'm 37 + 5 days and I'm am sooo antsy. My son was 37 weeks and a bit of a surprise, so now I'm pretty ready, but apparently baby isn't. I think I've lost my mucous plug and I think I'm having BH and dilating...a lot of twinges going on down there, but still no baby. I know my body and baby will do there job when the time is right, but I'd just like to do it now! The waiting is driving me crazy. I alternate between getting lots done and playing solitaire on the computer for hours. And I'm sleeping like crap! Come on little girly!

I know I know I know.
But when you're hurting this much, all of the reassurances in the world won't help. Sigh.
I won't do anything to induce him though. I'll be patient, well for a little while more anyhow.
Trixie was 41 weeks, but this pregnancy has been nothing like hers, it's really shocking how different they were, and are. I wonder how their personalities will be different. She was the happiest most mellow baby, the kind everyone was envious of, and even as a toddler, she's really busy, really really really, but she just rolls with the punches, is obediant and is so happy.
(oh yeah, boys scare me a little!)
Trixie was also a great nurser when she was born, even after her crappy birth she was able to latch right away, so I know the longer he's in the better the latch.
But still, he needs to be born, everything is indicating that he's cooked! COOKED!

I know what you mean! I'll be 37 weeks tomorrow, yet it feels like I could birth at any second, like when I stand up the baby is just going to fall out!
My son was born right on time, I am expecting another 3 weeks or so of no sleep, being uncomfortable, etc

I'm ready too. Still getting sick - which doesn't help. I've had acupuncture 3 days in a row - 4 tomorrow. I'm listening to 'Baby, Come Out' track from hypnobabies. EPO started a couple of weeks ago.

Everyone thinks he dropped today - so I'm hoping some progress is coming today or at least by the end of the week!
