Re: Who is STILL pregnant!?

STILL here!!! And 40+5 today. This weekend I had full blown contractions, but stalled. We are having homebirth, so induction/augmentation is not an option. Gotta love the 10th month!!!

Re: Who is STILL pregnant!?

39 weeks 3 days.

Does anyone else have time restrictions on their homebirths? Here in Utah its only legal to have a homebirth until 42 weeks at which point I have to go to a hospital My m/w says she has never had to transfer to a hospital for going past due that there's always some trick that works (cohosh, or what not.) But after I was induced with my second I'm seriously doubting my body's ability to go into labor on its own. GAH!! I dont' want to go to the hospital!!

Re: Who is STILL pregnant!?

I am having an unassisted so no. I know sometimes midwives will fudge dates so you have that extra time.

39w3d here but it feels more like 45weeks! This last little bit is really quite torturous! I wish I could just relax and enjoy this time but I'm just so excited to meet this little guy!

That's exactly how I feel! My husband keeps saying that we should take advantage of the time we have now to get things done, go out for dinner, go out to the movies, etc.... and I know he's right- but I just want to meet my son soo much that it's hard to remember that sometimes! Here's hoping they show up soon!

Re: Who is STILL pregnant!?

I'm not "late", but 39 weeks exactly today. I'm ready to get this show on the road. Not because I'm horribly uncomfortable or anything. I'm just over this whole work thing and ready to start my maternity leave. And, I'm scheduled to go in the evening of the 27th to start an induction and I really would like to avoid that. I need to have a little talk with my little one and see if she wants to come out on her own :-)

Re: Who is STILL pregnant!?

Went to our 40 week appt today since our doctor is off for Christmas. She insists that an induction needs to be booked between 7 and 10 days after the due date. That puts us at Jan. 1st for 7 days. I'm still hanging on to the hope that he'll be here before the new year, but if he doesn't come on his own, I really don't think a January 1st induction is the best date. The doc made it sound like I really don't have a choice in the matter though. Anyone else encounter this?
