I totally understand how you feel!! My 1st was 38 weeks 1 day and my 2nd was 39 weeks 3 days. I was so miserable, lol!! I keep wondering if I'll go even longer this time!

Re: This is just CRUEL.....

My last 2 were 35 and 36wks. They were 2 sets of twins, but still. I'm now 37wks and going strong. I feel like I should have popped already! LOL. However, I will say, I don't really want this baby to come till I'm at least 38. I don't want a baby that needs any NICU time or extra care either. So, it's a catch 22. But, after next Monday...this baby better make his entrance!!

DS was born at 37w5d and DD was 38w. It was only a couple days more but I hope it doesnt keep up with that pattern. Well see what happens with this baby.

I was early with the first 2 and late with #3. Call it an exercise in patience!

I guess I should add that I get super antsy after 37 weeks for the baby to come because I have lupus. Women with lupus have a fairly high rate of still birth after 40 weeks compared to healthy women.

Most OBs and midwives like to induce women with lupus to enssure an alive baby (which I totally get). So come 37 weeks I start all the tricks to get labor going to avoid induction. I figure if babies not ready they wont come but both of my came pretty easy!
