The Day After...my due day

And I am still here. Still big, still not sleeping. Still CLOSED!!!!

Just had my OB appt and she said I was 'nice & soft' but closed. ugh! I really thought something was happening. I was gonna ask her to strip my membranes but she must have small fingers cuz just the exam really hurt. I didn't want her to hafta go any higher.

Now I have an appt for next Tuesday for a biophysical ultrasound. Anyone know what this is for?

Probably to check your fluid levels and make sure the baby is still doing Ok in there...

momma - hang in there the baby will come when he/she is ready! With my first I was 4 days late before I went into labor. I would suggest a boat ride (thats what worked for me within 5 minutes - a slow trip through the coves) but its getting a little chilly - at least here. I know its tough waiting but just keep thinking about the end result - holding that beautiful baby in your arms!!

The biophysical u/s is to check the baby and make sure everything is still okay...neurologically, etc...

Yup, mine was wrong though~ the OB wanted me to induce but my midwife kept saying a normal pregnancy is 38 to 42 weeks and we get hung up on the 40 week mark..

OB said my son was running out of fluid and on and on... Midwife kept saying all is fine..I trusted the midwife and didn't induce.. Had LOTS of fluid and the baby hadn't pooped (they said the ultrasound showed he had) when he was born a week later..

Re: The Day After...my due day

Thanks ya'll. I'm now two days overdue. I have been having some stronger contractions but I'm thinking that must be from the exam? Apparantly my cervix is still closed so I am trying not to get my hopes up. Although I am really hoping to have her on Saturday. Sooner would be nice but saturday would be 'convenient'. I would be all set with childcare for my other daughter. I just really thought I was gonna go early so I guess that is why I am all anxious in anticipation. Also kind of a little bit worried. Hoping and praying everything is fine, just late.

What are the chances your due date is off?

I know how it must feel though. You are all excited to hold your LO on or after 9/18 and now it is 9/20 and no LO to hold. Just kicking and uncomfortableness! Hoping you have a fast and wonderful birth!

Re: The Day After...my due day

Estimated due dates are just that, mama - estimated. I know you are worrying, but do some googling and you will see that it is perfectly normal to have a 41, 42, 43 or even 44 week pregnancy. The average length of pregnancy for a Caucasian woman is 41.6 weeks.

My son was born two weeks after his "due date" and he was perfect in every way, and only 7lbs 13oz. Babies come when they are ready.
