<p>I am 10 days overdue and R E A L L Y  wanna give birth. The baby is totally head down, punching my thighs. every night I am in quazi-prodromal labor. I say this because I get maybe 4-5 breath through contx. Then they petter out and I am antzy.</p>
<p>What is weird is unlike the last babies I uc'd, this one seems to be comfy with me, and I with him/her. I mean I am uncomfortable, but getting used to this mass on my front.</p>
<p>BUT I am a b*tch. I am so cranky!</p>
<p>We tried a natural prostaglandin deposit (hahahaha) this morning. No good and painful because I am sooooo swollen down there! I considered castor oil- but my poops are loose enough.</p>
<p>any suggestions?</p>
<p>Please help!</p>

<p>Advice?  Just the basics...patience and excellent self-care.  If you are losing sleep, then make sure to get naps.  Get a massage, or somethign else that can help with discomforts...check in with your baby lovingly, trust yourself, your baby, the process.  Notice when you are anxious/antsy and breathe deep.</p>

<p>Babies always come!  Won't be long now....</p>

<p>thank you so much Ms Black. I know babies always come, but this time, he jsut seems so content to hang out! I go to bed thinking every night "this is the night" and I get so depressed when nothing happens. My prodromal labor is sporatic and frustrating. BUT I need to stay outta my own way.</p>
<p>He's moving slowly now- but still joyful of the peace inside my belly, as opposed to the chaos of 4 big sisters dying to meet him/her!</p>

<p>Yeah, most of my babies were on the early side, 37 wks up to due date births.  The one that decided she liked the 'peace within' until nearly 42, well I woke each morning a cried for a few minutes...oh NO, still pregnant!  But then I got on with day, a few tears didn't hurt either of us.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>As for this one loving that peace within--maybe you need to talk to this baby about how much fun there is in a house full of sibs!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Hang in there, cry if you need to, it'll only relax you--and laugh whenever you can <span><img alt="lol.gif" height="31" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/lol.gif" width="15"></span></p>

<p>my last UC was 2 hrs. I am hoping I am one of those mamas who go to sleep, then wake up with a baby in bed. Sleep through the whole thing!</p>
