  • No, I miss being pregnant :( I was 11 days overdue. I wasn't that uncomfortable.. It was hard, but I miss it soo much.

  • until about 40 weeks, i was not ready at all and definitely not wanting to rush things. around 40 weeks, i started to feel ready. then he was born at 41 weeks, by which time i felt like i was going to be pregnant forever! lol. but i think i wasn't in a rush because i was nervous about being a mom. :)

  • I would be perfectly content to go overdue. I am pretty miserable, and now I have some kind of stomach flu, but I like being pregnant and I am not ready for it to be over. I am 37 weeks now.

  • I was fine with it. My only concern with my second was that it was a VBAC, and doctors don't like to let pregnancy go on too long in those cases, because of a big baby and all that crap. So I was researching stuff and bought some castor oil the weekend of my due date to be put to use at 41 or 42 weeks, should my doctor insist on scheduling my birth because it was taking so long, but only as a last resort (like if she'd scheduled my C-section for 42 weeks and no baby, I probably would've tried something for the 2-3 days before that to try and make it happen to avoid a C-section). But it never came to that, and I hade my baby at 40 weeks exactly. :)
