I've been kind of planning in going into labor within a couple days of my EDD. Probably because I went into labor on my EDD with my DS. I'm due April 6th, and I think if I don't go into labor by the 8th, I may start freaking out a little. I guess we'll see. Well, hopefully we won't see because I'll have a newborn in my arms by then...

 

Good-luck to all of us with the wait!

Hopefully this will encourage others...I've really had a change mentally and am really ok with baby not coming now. I want this birth to go the best way it can (HBAC) and have relaxed a lot in the last few days to trust in God's timing and design for this birth. Today is the day I went in to labor with DS with my water breaking. Yesterday was the day with him that my chiro "stirred things up" and interestingly, my chiro this time, yesterday, opted NOT to do that. Said I was doing so well, pelvis holding great, symmetrical, and felt we should just let things be for what I am wanting to achieve (VBAC) and let baby lead the way. I agreed with that and was struck last evening about how this detours from DS's birth, which is GOOD.  Chiro visits on the same day but with a different approach, and next day, no labor this time and so from now on things are different, which is good and how it should be. This is a completely different birth, and I accept the timing that comes with it.

IdentityCrisisMama and kaPOW! like this.

I KNOW there is no reason to think I'd go into labor around the same time, and I canNOT fathom going two more weeks or even four and a half more weeks.

 

So, to those who had a longer second pregancy, how did you manage? I'd love to get out and keep busy and do stuff to make the time pass, but I am physically not up for it.  I'm rather bored and I'm sure that is making it worse. Baby is lower so I'm more sore and I just get beat. Everything is ready for baby and homebirth too. Maybe I should schedule a massage for later this week.

 

I know I'm not alone...help me through these last days/weeks!

I soooo hope that my #4 doesn't end up a 42 weeker.

#1 was 3 days overdue

#2 was induced the day before her due date

#3 was born naturally ON her due date

#4 ????????? Please NOT 42 weeks, baby boy.
