Well, here we are I honestly thought I'd deliver early. Shrug. I guess babies come when they come! I'm feeling okay. Surprisingly sleeping reasonably well (I get up every few hours for the bathroom but usually can get right back to sleep afterwards). Still active- I did 5 loads of laundry yesterday, which is only remarkable because we live on the the top floor of a 3 story walkup and the laundry machines are in the basement. (My DH carries it all down and up in one big load- I just do the legwork).

I was a little concerned yesterday since baby girl was a bit lazy. But she responded well when I did kick counts- and had ice cream. And she woke me up this morning with some crazy dancing.


My last official day at work will be Tuesday. And unless baby comes on her own before then, I'll be induced on May 27.

Wow you sound like you're doing really well. I was a hormonal maniac and would have been happy to strangle someone if it meant I could have my baby sooner. lol. Kody was 5 days overdue. Not long, but sometimes, every minute is torture! At least, for some of us. So happy to hear you are feeling OK and that you're still sleeping all right and getting around. Hang in there!

Oh man, I sympathize! Going past the due date is torture, not just because you may not be feeling so great, although it sounds like you are doing well, but because all you want to do is meet baby I hope she decides it is time after tomorrow!

I'm just curious if you've had any signs of labor at all? Any contractions? I keep having this feeling I will deliver early but then I wonder if she will surprise me and be late like yours is doing! lol But I agree, whenever baby is ready to come, she will! I hope it's soon for you! And I'm glad you are feeling good still!

No baby today! I do have a few good contractions here and there- maybe 2-3 a day, mixed in with the Braxton-Hicks. But they don't stick around.

I had a massage today, and my massage therapist spent some time on an acupressure point on my second toe that she says is supposed to help things move along. I'm not 100% sure I believe it, but I guess time will tell. And the massage was lovely

lol, no updates I had a drs appt yesterday- still just dilated to 2, not really effaced (she didn't really say how much/little). Still have a few good contractions each day, but nothing regular or meaningful. I got my instructions for induction next week, if baby hasn't come by then.

Being dilated and contracting is a good sign. I was 3 cm for a while and contracting here and there with BH mixed in, I had to be induced as well, but I was induced earlier. Hopefully she will come in the next day or so, if not today!
