Pregnancy Pregnancy

40 weeks + 4 days no sign of labour yet :(

This is my 5th baby and I am now 40 + 4. I have known 4 other young girls all due around the same time as me with their 1st and they have all had their babies this week. It's upsetting, a lot of 1st timers go over....and I am the one who is over :(   I want my little man out! I have been sick for the last 2 weeks and have just started to get better the last couple of days but I am so ready for this pregnancy to be OVER!

Oh no!  My first little guy was 10 days late so I know how you feel!  Hang in there, it will be over soon!

Just wait it out sweetie! At this point it becomes a mind game for you. You need to take some deep breaths, relax, and get a mental grasp on the situation. Stay in control! The more you stress and worry and cry over it, the more likely it is that you're holding yourself back from going into labor.

Baby will be here soon, and all you need to worry about right now is resting, hydrating, and indulging any and every craving you may have. Get one of your kids or your husband to do your toenails for you! If you can spare a little money you could probably find somewhere that does prenatal massages (which can bring on labor!)

Most women go into labor at night, since we're fully relaxed and calm while we sleep. Keep that in mind! ;)

My first was 14 days past his edd, and my second was 10 days past her edd. I was induced with all 4 of mine. :-/ hang in here and try to go naturally.

I hit 41 weeks because my son was stubborn and they induced me I was in labor for 22 hrs with no progress at 8 cm so they gave me a csection. He was even stubborn after he had to get suctioned 3 times before he cried. I hope your little man comes out for you :)

Sounds like you are focusing on a *day* rather than the month....


Sometime, eventually.....    GL!
