I'm still waiting too.  Granted, I'm only 2 days overdue now, but now I am also past the point when I had my son.  I was hoping to be done with work, but I guess it's looking like I'll be in tomorrow.

painful contractions since yesterday, anywhere from 6 min apart to 2x an hr.  I was 3cm dilated on thursday.  I'm exhausted!

Sooo glad not to be pregnant anymore :)  12 days late really sucked.  I feel for all the mamas going even later!

Yay Taryn! 16 days overdue here, I'm really hoping it's soon. I've had acupuncture the last 2 days in a row. It's giving me contractions, but then they stop. Crossing my fingers that they continue today. I feel huge!! And I'm so tired of explaining myself to the people who wonder why I haven't been induced yet. I have until Monday for 43 weeks. My midwife says she'll break my waters this weekend if I don't go before then. I'm already 3-4 cm and 80% effaced, so here's hoping it works if nothing else does.

After my last post, I ended up going into labor around 8 that night and had her close to 3 in the morning on May 3rd.

Thanks! He was finally born last night! I feel like I've been pregnant forever. It's so nice to not have to worry about which position to sleep in anymore. And, I'm so glad he decided to show up before 43 weeks so I got my homebirth. :)

Congratulations, MomtoJunebugs, and welcome to your baby boy! It is unfortunate that "time limits" are placed on gestation, but I am always especially happy to hear about someone beating the clock. :)

Thanks! Yeah, my midwife would have broken my water this weekend to avoid a hospital birth, but I am so glad that didn't have to happen. :)

I just had my babe this morn about 8:30 so I'm out. Only a 42 weeker this time. All mine have been "late" with my last one being 43 1/2 weeks so I thought it would be late. Super fast dilation and bathtub birth while my hubby was blowing up the pool, lol. Awesome :D

Congratulations, zensven42! Lol at "only a 42 weeker" - I had expected to go longer too, based on my previous birth. :)
