I just wanna know that I'm not the only one suffering right now!  My due date was today and I still have no signs of labor.  I have no idea if I'm dilated at all b/c I haven't been checked b/c I haven't had any contractions at all.  I'm getting so depressed.  Everyone keeps saying that she'll come out soon when she's ready, but I'm going crazy!!!!  Is anyone else suffering?

I will be 40 weeks on Thursday (4 days from now).  I also have not had anything that I'd call a contraction and am not dilated.  I don't get the whole point in checking for dilation since it doesn't mean much as to when you'll deliver.  (You could be 2cm and still be a week late, or not dilated and go the next day).  I really felt like I'd have him last week and obvioulsy didn't.  I feel ok with waiting this week and even to 41 weeks before I'd even think about induction.  I just think about how quickly time goes - and this time will go quickly as well (when we look back on it).  I'd rather wait until he's ready than do something early and have to live with any possible consequences.  Plus my husband has asthma and I know these last few weeks are all about lung development - everyday that his lungs develop so he's less likely to have asthma is fine with me.  (Plus I enjoy sleep and know that I won't have much when he comes).

Today was my original due date, but my doc changed it to Friday... I am SOOOOOO ready to be done! I'm getting so tired of people telling me that he'll come when he's ready. If he takes after his father, which I am thinking he might, he will stay there until he is forced out in two weeks!

i know what you mean!! im due in a week and 4 days and have NO sign of labor being anytime soon. the only thing that has happened is my belly dropped an itsy bit! not so exciting... i just thought maybe by now something HUGE would of happened...but no... i hope my baby girl isnt late... a couple  days i can deal with, but more than a week??! i think thats when ill ask to be induced or something...

im sooo uncomfortable at night and for some reason ill sleep at 12 in the morning and get up at 3 am!! only 3 hours of sleep and when i do get tired it takes forever for me to knock out.. and my belly is always tight, and she always moves when im most comfy, and i pee like 4 times a night when i do sleep, etc... ugh! i just want her to come already! im so anxious to see her and hold her and hopefully sleep more. which i doubt, but still...

i hope things go easy for you. you must be fustrated because your due today. good luck.
