I know it normal for them to slow down a little at this point, but I feel like I spend most of the day pausing and trying to make sure I'm feeling enough movement. This morning I had to sit for like fifteen minutes and poke and prod her to get her to start moving.

I can handle being eight days past my due date, I'm not uncomfortable...but now I am spending all day worrying about the baby. I just want her to come out so I can relax. greensad.gif

Luckily she was very active yesterday, so that calmed me down a bit. I had contractions ten minutes apart for a couple hoursvagain last night and they just stopped. 9 days past my due date now...oh my goodness, please come out!

I'm just a few days behind you. I'm 41 weeks today. These babies have to come out soon - I can so relate to your sentiment. These babies need to come on and leave their comfy spots in the womb!

Yup, less movement here, too, at 40+5. FWIW, my mom recalls that I moved way less at the very end. But I've been holding onto that hope for a week. Oh well; she's moving some, but not big rolling freakish movements in the evenings like before.
