  • You are not actually over you due date until your two weeks past that date so you do have time before you need to worry or be induced.
    Some woman will have contractions and be dialted for a good amount of time.
    Relax baby will come when it's ready.

  • Yes, don't worry. The baby WILL come at some point. Your due date is just a guestimate... It's basically set around the time when you ought to deliver...not the exact day.

    I know you're anxious, but just remember, let the bun cook until she's done. ^_^

  • baby will come when he/she likes!! and dont worry that your water hasnt broken, that doesnt mean anything. it's not a bad thing either if they have to break it for you.
