7 days untill my due date, will she ever come?

So 7 days from now baby Alexandrea "should" be born and I really thought she'd be here way before her due date. They all lied to us growing up that pregnancy is 9 months, I can't believe some Dr.s let you go up to 42 weeks, that's horrible, I'm so done with this it's not even funny. I can't wait to have little baby already. I'm 2 cm dialated, my cervix is "soft" they said, and she's like -1 effaced or something. Do you gals/guys think its going to happen this week? I know no one would technically "know" but what do you think?  I need some encouragment to maintain me untill July 12th (a week from now that feels like a light year lol)

I had a appointment friday the 11th ( i was almost 41 weeks) and my doctor told me the same thing and said i still had a long so he made a appointment for a c-section if she didn't come on her own by the 21st i was like no way i can't wait that long but you know you don't get a say unless there's a problem so i went home for a long wait made even worse by my doctor going on vacation that sunday so i worried about going into labor while he was gone but babies come when they want to and by 1:00 the next afternoon i was holding my sweet baby in my arms and my doctor was there for the delivery so it'll happen you never know when make sure your ready i hope you have a safe delivery and a healthy baby

i totally empathise with you, by the time you reach your due date your practically begging labour to start, i remember too well i was! there's just no way of knowing when she will come though, could be tomorrow or you could be late. i was sure i'd be early with my first 2 babies and i was late by 5 days and induced both times, by the time i was having my 3rd i knew i'd be late, i was, 7 days and induced again....i am fully expecting to be late and no doubt induced this time around too!
just try and make the most of the time you have left, once baby is here you will have very little time for yourself!

My whole pregnancy I thought my son would be early. I had everything packed by like 35 weeks and waited and waited. He came 12 days after his due date! I was 2cm dialated for like 2 weeks and then 4cm for the last few days. Hang in there...there is an end!!

lol i packed my stuff around 36 weeks and i keep looking at them every time i turn my head to the left by the door, i keep adding things in it and taking stuff out for no reason lol . its like my life is on hold and its been this way for the past 3 weeks since i got the baby room ready and pretty much everything around the house. its very difficult not to drown in your own thoughts

LOL yep!! I felt the exact same way. I was so calm the whole time though. Never once was I nervous about labour. I was just ready. I actually went into labour the day before they scheduled me to be induced. I even had like 5 stretch and sweeps....my son just wasn't ready to make it into the world just yet. I also did all the other things, ate lots of pineapple, raspberry leaf tea, evening primrose oil, sex, walking, bouncing on a yoga ball. I was doing it all!
