This is going to sound bad..

I am 38 weeks and 6 days and I am starting to hate my body. I have lost my mucus plug now 3 weeks ago, been dilated 3cm and 70% effaced for 3 weeks now, and I have been having extreme braxton hicks contractions for over a month, I cannot sleep anymore and haven't barely been able to eat in 3 days! I have tried everything, from walking, excercising, yoga, sex, bowling, cleaning even got so desperate i scrubbed the floors on my hands and knees. I've tried showers and baths and i've even tried pinapple, and nothing. My doctor has been telling me for 2 weeks now, any day! I don't think i'll see you back next week! I highly doubt you'll make it to 40 weeks! All the things i guess you'd want to hear, but then i'm getting so discouraged because there's been no progress.. I am EXHAUSTED, and i am in so much pain, and i am beyond ready, and beyond over this.. I cannot do this for another minute, let alone another month... ahhhhh!

Buy very expensive tickets to something that's non refundable for tomorrow night.

You won't make it through tomorrow.  ;D

I am 12 days over my due date and I had exactly the same from the doctors (even my partner thought I would give birth early) which makes it even more depressing to get through the days.
I am finally being induced tomorrow. I know exactly how you feel. Hang in there, you'll get through it : )

I'm 39 weeks and 5 days and I'm right there with you. Don't really even think of my due date as anything special anymore lol. I'm not even dilated yet at all..

I was 40W when I had my daughter, I'm 4'11 and 103lbs my daughter was 9lbs and 21 1/2in , so she was hurting me bad she was so big. I know the discomfort.
This baby I'm 19W and already I am wishing this baby would hurry and come! I've had morning sickness everyday! My back hurts really bad! Mainly because he is sitting in 2 nerves in my back which is causing me back pain and horrible legs pain sometimes I can't even walk they feel like extreme charlie horse cramps all at once in my thighs, calfs and feet. This past Friday I went to the hospital cause I was not feeling good at all to find out I came back positive for the flu and bronchitis and that braxton hicks have started. If its not my legs, its my back, if its not my back it my throat and chest, if its not that its my head or my stomach. I feel horrible ! I have no energy I'm so miserable I just really wish time would fly and this Lil boy would hurry up and come :(
