I just need a little whiny-space. I'm 40w+2 today. I've never even made it to 40w before so this is new territory for me. I've been trying to be at peace with it all but it's hard cause I'm physically very uncomfortable at this point: baby is very low and has been sitting low for weeks now. I'm crampy, my hips are achy and so is my lower back. I have a whopping two skirts that fit and maybe three shirts. Pants are out, unless I want to show off my ginormous belly. So, I'm trying to be chill and laid back and reminding myself that 40+2 isn't really *that* late yada, yada.

This morning I woke up to bloody show and regular contractions. For three hours, I contracted every 7 minutes, some I could barely move through. My folks took the kids, I went for a walk. I tried to do other things so my mind wouldn't be too focused on early labor. Then I did too much and got tired so I took a little nap. And everything STOPPED. As in completely, utterly, absolutely stopped. So here I sit waiting indefinitely again for a baby who apparently doesn't want to be born. Argh!!!!

I hear you! I am 40 weeks and 3 days today. I have been late with all 3 of my other kids so this is not new territory for me, but that doesn't make it any easier. Going past the EDD is so emotionally draining. Having the baby and all the ctx take up all of your head space. It makes me really grumpy and I don't want to talk to anyone and I expect my kids to be angels all the time, which they are not. Waking up everyday wondering if this is the day gets tiring after awhile....

Thanks for the sympathy ladies! I had a good cry in the middle of the night when I woke up still with no signs of labor starting up again. This whole end-of pregnancy has been sooooo different from my first two. I've had very little prodromal labor and now start & stop labor. I've never had bloody show before active labor either, so it was hard to not bank on that being a sign of labor. Ah well.... I keep telling myself that he will come when he comes and that's it! Sometimes that actually helps!
