Re: Is anyone overdue?

hi mama! i'm sorry you're overdue! waiting is sooo hard!
i'm curious why you wouldn't be able to have a waterbirth if you are given pit? is that just something your hospital does? i saw you live in MN...i do too. i plan on having my baby (not for a while yet) and HCMC in minneapolis. ok...done taking over the thread now

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).
