OMG!! Cant wait to have the baby!!!!!! My due date was Sept 11,ive been having some contractions every day and on my due date after getting up in the am after peeing got some pink spotting but that was it. It feels soo frustrating.....this is my 3rd child, first was induce at 41 weeks, second was a c-section because of the stuped DR at 39 weeks, and this baby will be a (VBAC)home delivery with a midwife.

I hope and wish can have the baby by thos weekend....... cant wait!!!! How far did you get in pregnancy without inducing???? heck no im not indiucing......

I went to 40w2d with my first. The wait was awful, but once I went into labor it was a huge weight lifted off my shoulders. Hang in there! You can do this!

With Hawk I went 41wks 3 days. My OB wouldn't let me go passed that. Most Dr's won't let you go past a  certain point because yes they may still baking, but it can actually become dangerous.

Not nearly as dangerous as an induction, especially fir a vbac.
My vbac daughter didn't come until 42 weeks 1 day. Hang in there and try to relax!

Inductions are NOT that bad as long as they are done properly. And if you go past 42 weeks you risk complications because amniotic fluid levels begin to drop and in some cases can drop drastically.

For a vbac they are extremely dangerous. Increases the risk of rupture big time

Not always. Those can happen at 36 weeks, too. There are ways to check those things without evicting baby.

I hear ya! I'm one day behind you and going crazy. My first was 4 days early so I thought no way would I be late with this one. I have GD and the doctors have been talking induction since 37 weeks. I am so against it, I mean if she were ready she would be here by now.
