So I have to make something clear! The baby count down says that I have 4 days to go and that is not TRUE!!! I am OVER 4 days working on 5! I am ready to be induced and the hospital does not have room till next wednesday! I then will almost be 42 weeks! AWWW! I am just praying that this baby will decide to come on his own before then and soon! Does anyone have some words of advice or encouragement cuz I need it. I am feeling all sorts of stress and worry!

Good luck Whit. I don't have any words of advice. I can only imagine how frustrating it would be. Hang in there. He'll be worth it :) Let me know when this cute kid gets here. Did you decide on his name?

I had a csection because my doctor didnt want me going over 40 weeks since the baby was big and her head hadnt dropped. at 39 weeks she measured 8lbs on the ultrasound and her head didnt drop, so the doctor okayed the c-section. I recovered pretty fast...you may want to ask about that unless you want to do the natural thing. But it can get really stressful on baby going too long...anyway, good luck and cant wait to see the baby pictures! Call me if you want more info!

I am sooooo sorry. I was a week late and about strangled anyone who even breathed near me. It was so miserable - I can't believe you're so far over. People kept telling me that my doctor was crazy for not inducing me earlier 'blah, blah, blah,' tell me some good news, please!! Braxton decided to come the night before I was supposed to be induced - so if that's the case, hang in till Tuesday. If he's still in there he probably still needs to be - remember that, because it's the only thing that will keep you sane.

Just hang in there! It is a very frustrating time because you want that baby out of you so bad! He will come and when he does you will miss being pregnant so try hard to enjoy it!

As far as helping yourself go into labor, I walked the curb, one foot on the side walk and one foot in the gutter. The next morning I woke up with contrations and 20 hours later, BABY!! It is worth a try I guess and you don't get the nasty side effects of other methods (caster oil).
Good luck!!

i am so sorry whit that is frustrating. i really don't have any advice. maybe jump on the tramp? but when he decides to come it won't matter when he did when you are holding him your arms let us know when he does get here

That is rough Whit. I know it feels like he will never be here. But before you know it you will be looking back and wondering where all the time went when you see how fast he is growing. You will make it. Hang in there! By the way some major Christmas shopping and walking couldn't hurt anything.

Keep busy!! I know it's hard but wait. I didn't with the last one and I was a way harder than the second. Good Luck.
