Re: Is anyone overdue?

I'm overdue, too! Either by 4 days or 6 days depending on what due date I use. My midwife calculated Jan 3rd with her little wheel using my LMP, however I am convinced she was wrong. I've calculated Jan 1st using multiple online calculators and playing with the wheel waiting for her in the exam room. The first day of my last period was March 27th. My twenty week u/s put me at Jan 5th, though; close enough not to change my due date.

It doesn't really matter, though, I keep telling myself. My first came on her own at 41w2d and second at 41w.

As of Friday, I was 4cm and 70%. She asked if I wanted to be induced--my cervix is favorable, and she thought it might only take them rupturing my membranes to get things going. I don't want to risk it though, because if they do have to give pitocin, I can't have the waterbirth I want.

Hang in there, mama! They come when they are ready (or at least I keep telling myself that).
