I really don't know what to do? i always thought that second time should go faster and i will have her around my due date or maybe a week later.
I am almost 41 weeks pregnant and no baby yet.
The thing is that my body has been ready for few weeks and i am having all the symptoms of early labour: like pooping a lot,nausea almost every day,i am 3cm and 75% effaced and the baby is very low,lost my mucus plug,having really bad contractions and back pain and i can barely walk,because it hurts down there.
I just don't understand why my contractions are not progressing,they are getting stronger,but not close enough to go to the hospital? I can hardly sleep now,it's impossible to turn on the other side.
I am so ready to meet my little miracle,but i don't want to carry her 43 weeks and i don't want to be induced either.
What should i do? I am getting closer to have her or what does it look like?
what was your experience?

Walking can speed things up. SEX can and its fun this last few days are when you can have careless sex without having to worry about aunt flo or getting prego again. I was like a rabbit I know TMI. But now my LO is 2 months old and i cant have that careless sex anymore I have to be careful so enjoy that. warm calming baths help and it also helps take the edge off. Even some lounges or squats can help get . I know what its like to be there and be ready to pop I went to 42 and 3 days and man did I go crazy. It was my first baby then and every time I tooted I thought I was in labor now 3 kids later it got alot easier, but I did end up having a c-section they tried to induced but it didn't work for me I made it to a 3 and then stayed there forever. But You can do this momma your LO will be here before you know it

Normal human gestation is anywhere from 38-42 weeks. If your body was ready, or more importantly if your BABY was ready, you'd go in to labor. I know it sucks. My son was born at 41 weeks and a day. I ended up with a healthy baby, though. Don't forget, dates can be off and one of the leading causes of premature birth in this country is induction. I'd rather wait a few extra weeks than end up causing my baby to have a NICU stay.
