I've been in this club for a while now!

42+1 today!
Lost my mucus plug over the last day or 2.
Otherwise nothing really.
Went for biophysical profile. All seemed good as far as the what the tech told me but will be a whopping 24 to 48hrs until the info gets passed to my midwife...seems like too long to me but what ever.
Just waiting.
This is my 3rd child (1st went to 42+1 after castor oil, 2nd was a VBAC at home at 40+2). This one will be another VBAC...it just needs to come on out!!

Hi there!

Checking in to this thread. I'm due in 3 days! Great job walking at the track, MunkisMom! Whereabouts are you? We had like below 10 F windchill today, so I stayed in but tried to stay up and active all day. I was thinking I would have liked to have been out walking.

Have had BH on and off most evenings - the biggest bout of them was last Thurs. after a nice massage.

My previous birth history - #1 was born at 1:30 a.m. the day after my due date, #2 was 11 days past my due date. So when baby #3 here will show up is anyone's guess! ;0)

Tomorrow is my "DD". I have been having some prodromal labor for a few days and I'm hoping that this babe is born soon. I know this weekend is full moon, so hopefully soon

I've had off and on cramps since 5:30am. Nothing regular though. I've also had some blood streaks when I potty (TMI!) and that is a new thing for me! I also got a call from my birth center saying my appt has been cancelled today because my MW is with someone in labor. NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!! Hope she goes well before I do! lol

41+1 here and praying for anything to set me off!! i have tried tinctures, massage, lots of sex/orgasm, spicy food, nipple stimulation. nothing is working and i think i may have to just resign myself to waiting indefinetly
i really hope it comes soon though!!

I'm still here but only 40w5d, so a little more cushion time. But I'm getting seriously stressed because I wanted this baby before Christmas. And as of tomorrow night/Wed morning, my entire birth team (except partner, daughter and mw) are out of town for Christmas - so I face the prospect of not having the people I wanted there and needing to find someone to be there with/for my daughter. We could prob get by without a support person for her b/c she's almost 10 but it'd be dicey b/c she and my partner have a complicated relationship (he's her stepdad and they've def been having conflict). I do NOT want to have to deal with that at birth, but I REALLY want her there. My best friend said she might come back (she's only 2 hrs away) and my sil might agree to stay an extra day, but I feel really bad asking them. I just really hope this baby comes today/tonight/tomorrow but I feel like I've given up hope. If it weren't for the holidays, I don't think I'd start feeling anxious until about 41 1/2 weeks but this christmas deadline is messing everything up.

bronxmom - i am sorry you're going through all that.

I was "due" last Thursday. I need this baby to wait til after the 28th. I'm getting nervous, though. My mom is coming on the 28th, and we've suddenly communicated that I would like her to be here. They can't come earlier than the 28th, but it's also possible they'll come later than that. I'm torn. But baby will do whatever it does, and we'll all be happy.


DD1 born at 37 weeks, DD2 at 42w5d. Who knows what this one will do!?!?!?

Thanks Janis. I've been following your story with your mom and really hope the baby waits for you and all works out. For what it's worth, it seems like it's easier for our bodies to keep babies in if we're hoping for that, then to get them out
I think you've got a good chance.

new moon is tonight.

DD1 was born 3 days before new moon, DD2 was born 1 day before.

Both were born less than 24 hours before my parents arrived ... they arrive around 4:30 tomorrow.

So, it's a race to the finish line with Bronxmom! (do you know what you're having?)
