I totally agree Momma Fern.   I am 41w3d and I feel like a freak show.  My head keeps going to places it shouldn't.  I need to get my head right!  I need to do the positive affirmations, I need to have this darn child so I can stop worrying!!! HEHEHE-maniacal laughter!  OK  so I am not zen, I am crazy at least I am functioning after 2 days of start and stop painful contractions.  I actually have kept up on laundry today too.  We will soon all have babies in arms and be forgetting this time ever existed-or trying to!  Good luck ladies!

The more time that goes by, the more I keep having this head-trip about why this baby is still inside me.  I keep thinking it must be something about how I am letting myself think or feel.  I am being SO hard on myself.  It doesn't help that even the neighbors that we don't really know well are saying "Still no baby?"  I feel broken, and honestly, if I am still pregnant next Sunday (which would be 42+1), at this point I will gladly accept a hospital induction.  NEVER thought I would even need to think about it.  Which also makes me kinda sad.  Whatever happened to the happy feelings of anticipating birth of a child?  I am struggling so much.

Ugh - hugs to all of you.  Being "overdue" is really, really tough.  I was hoping with chiro and acupuncture, I wouldn't go to my due date, but apparently that was wishful thinking.

me too, then i start freaking out that something must be wrong with either me or the baby, that is why he/she isn't coming!  I Think we need to say out loud-WE ARE NOT BROKEN!  WE ARE DESIGNED TO GIVE BIRTH! WE CAN DO THIS!  Okay that is enough motivational speaking for right now!  Good luck and happy vibes to you all
