Where the babies at?

So officially overdue now & feeling impatient. I'm 40 + 3 & really want to go into labour naturally. I had to be induced at 42 weeks with my first & really didnt want that to happen again. I feel like I'm going to be pregnant forever!!!! Anyone else overdue & over it??

I'm exactly the same. 40+2 and had to be induced at two weeks over with my 1st pregnancy.
All I wish for this pregnancy is to feel what it's like to go into labour naturally. Starting to give up hope now and fed up!! x

Same here.. 40w+4d now, no sign of baby yet. Been at 1cm for weeks.
Getting membrane sweep tomorrow, hopefully it will help.
Had to have an emergency csection with my first one so I can't be medically induced with this baby. Have to wait for labor to start naturally, otherwise - its a csection.

Good luck, mamas!! Hopefully we'll get to meet our little ones very soon))

Good luck to you! I know all that matters in the end is that our bubs arrive safely but it's hard to be patient at this stage. Hurry up babies!!! x

I'm 38+5 and sitting at home at 5 1/2cm dialtes, stalled labor. No contractions, Nada.
Hoping I don't make it until my next appointment. Or if I do, she induces me.

I'm hoping I don't go over 40 weeks. But it certainly feels like I will.

Pull out all the stops. Evening primrose oil capsules, orange juice and whole milk, raspberry leaf tea, go on a 2 minute run, squats, hell I'd even do jumping jacks.

Wondered what was going on with you Becca. Sending positive vibes your way!

I appreciate it! Going on a long walk today. Hoping to walk a couple miles to start some contractions. Crossingy fingers it works.

41 weeks today. Had a sweep yesterday but still no sign of bub. Feeling like a whale & sick of waiting!!

I'm 41+1 already.. Was hoping for a sweep few days ago but doc said my cervix was very thick so she couldn't do it. Been at 1cm for weeks too... Ahhh
I'm already getting my mind ready for csection at 42. This baby just doesn't want to come out.
