Yeah, this. A thousand times.

 

Ever seen a blog titled, "My OB said WHAT?!". Look it up, read a few pages, and try to say that again with confidence. ;)

Here's another bit of info for mamas feeling like maybe they're getting some unfair pressure to be induced.

Or this one, which isn't proactive but gives you an insider's look on how deep the manipulation runs...

"Getting a stubborn patient to say 'yes'."

Well, my official due date is tomorrow. I am starting to freak out. My other 2 had been born by now. My first right at 39 weeks and my second at 38 weeks 2 days. So, I am trying to figure out what this baby is up to in there. Yesterday I had a moment of... "maybe I am not even pregnant, and I just have a tumor or something"

Okay, I can post here now! Today is my EDD. I know it doesn't really mean anything, but I sure was hoping for a baby by now! My first two kidlets were born before their EDD, so this third baby is throwing me for a loop! I feel like I have been pregnant forever--I got the BFP on Labor Day--if I'm still pregnant on Memorial Day I don't know what will become of me. mecry.gifAlright, so that is a bit dramatic, but I'm NOT good at this waiting game. Hopefully the baby will come this week since my DH is scheduled off work. I guess the only thing to do is wait, and wait, and wait. And wait. And wait....Ha!

Well... I don't know what this 3rd child is waiting for but he/she NEEDs to arrive soon.  I am 41wks+3 now and feeling so burnt out. I had an appt with my midwife yesterday and asked her to check me because I've been having off/on contractions that just don't go anywhere. Plus I've been feeling a lot of down low pressure, especially when I use the bathroom.  Good news is that the cerix is soft and effaced and I am dilated 4+ cms- very stretchy and she could feel the baby's head.  I go back tomorrow to be checked again.  Other good news is that the baby's head is engaged in a pretty good position- a concern for me since the baby has been vacillating between posterior and ROA.  I feel like I have to have the patience of a sait to wait this out.  I'm tired of DTD to get things going and, in fact, ended up with a yeast infection.  I was worried that would be in full force when I had the baby and then cause thrush but it seems cleared up and I've been double dosing on probiotics and my yeast gard vitamins.

 

ELV's to all those mamas who are past their "guess date".  They really should just give a 4-5 week window of time for when you are due as the "due date" just causes so much stress.

I had my first at 38 weeks, second 39+4 and now I can say my 3rd at 41 weeks or 41 +2 if I go by the doc due date which I don't consider to have been accurate. So, I guess each baby has its' own time in mind. I know how you feel. 

Just wanted to give you encouragement with that.

I was 39 weeks yesterday and lost my mucous plug two weeks ago (lots of dribs and drabs since then) plus two days of bloody show: two days ago and today. The pain is pretty bad due to my AS (spinal disease), and honestly I'm feeling very 'done' but I'm hanging on... can't really be much more of this and in the long run it's so much safer to keep her in than it is to "encourage" or outright induce.

Here I am 11 days past my EDD.  I really thought I'd be holding my baby today.  Woke up at 2:30am with some contractions and after using the bathroom there was pink mucus and some slight blood tinged mucus.  Had ctx's that were about every 3 mins for about an hour and was going to call the mw.  Went upstairs and was feeling so tired I thought I'd lay down and see how I managed with them while lying down before I woke up DH and called the mw.  It was torrentially raining and wanted to be sure it was the real deal before I phoned her.  Well... they petered out and I woke up a few more times- off/on with mild ctx's but then I'm just in the same pattern of mild contractions and back pain this morning. I'm sitting here bouncing on a yoga ball.  I go see the mw at 11:30am today so we'll see what she has to say.  I'm getting sort of mentally beat with all this stop/start of labor.  I feel like this is the Tour de Labour and I'm just doing it in a zillion little stages.

 

I guess my biggest worry is that my water breaks and baby is born super quick.  This happened with DD2 and DH helped deliver her but I am just not the UC type and really like the reassurance of a mw there.  Well, another day.

 

Oh, and last comment... maybe this has been a mental block to labor- but I told my older sister I am having a HB.  She freaked out and said a lot of not so nice stuff to me (which I expected) but at least it's said and done.

Joining this thread never thought I would be!  I'm only 1 day overdue though :)  I had my first at 37 weeks, second right on her due date.  Every pregnancy gets longer!  the hardest thing right now is my sciatica is bothering me so much I can barely stand anymore..otherwise I'm trying to be patient!  Lost my plug weeks ago, I've been 2cm for weeks...I WILL go into labor, I just have to keep telling myself that!
