Did you feel like this?

Hi ladies, im writing on my cell so please excuse the mispellings im trying to write fast. I turn 39 weeks tomorro and im feeling so freaking sad and so many other feelings. Now my doc told me he wants to wait until my due date for induction. Ive been having lots of contraction painfull ones and ive been to the hospital for shortnes of breath and heart palpitations. I never thought i would make it so far i thought i would have my baby by week 37 and nathing yet. Last visit at the doc i was 1 cm dilated but my cervix isnt ready yet. He said i was gonna make it to due date. So my problem is i dnt want to be induced i wanted to this myself im so depresed i know she has to come out one way or tge other but im not prepared for all the induction procedure. How bad is it? Any stories of induction? My nerves are a wreck!!!

My water broke at 5am, by 2:30 I was not having any contractions and felt fine, so I agreed to patosine(sp?) anyway, the contractions finally kicked in, about 1.5 hours later they were REALLY strong and I got my epidural, 1:29am I had my baby. So dont stress about it, it isnt a big deal, a lot of women are induced. After you see that cute baby you are not goig to care at all!!

Sorry your feeling a little down, but the closer to your due date she stays put they more likely hood of her being sent home with you... Don't rush it enjoy this last week, cuz after they she gets here you'll have many sleepless nights and the waiting will be well worth it!!!

Hi, I know this is an old post.

Can I ask did you know why you were getting palpitations? Im getting them like nobody's business, I have for weeks. Midwife didbt seem too bothered, so I went hospital on a maternity unit and had an ecg. Came back normal but it's all started again, im not anxious or anything.. Im 36 weeks.
