I feel your pain. I went 41.5 weeks and was induced by my choice. (I actually wish I'd waited out the last few days). You have my permission to throw rotton tomatoes at the next person who says anything like, "You haven't had your baby YET?"
The baby has to come out eventually...... (right??)
I also feel your pain I went 41w1 days with my 1st. Your body rocks and your baby is so content. Your baby will come out strong & healthy because you are letting it bake. Be proud!
Also to deal with those random people that have no business asking when you are due tell them "last week" "x days ago" 1-they will horrible they asked 2-the look on their face is priceless and will make you laugh...itleast it did me lol!
You ladies are doing your babies the best thing ever...way to be unselfish again YOU ROCK!
Laast time I was pregnant, I went and got a last minute appt to get my hair cut on my kid's due date. I sat in the chair and the lady asked me when my due date was. I said, "today." She had the funniest reaction. She was just about to start combing my hair. She kind of froze in mid-air and you could see her debate on whether or not to touch me. I got a kick out of that.
You must have made a good home for the kiddo if it doesn't want to come out!
Hoping your babies come out soon and you can hold them in your arms. Try to enjoy the last few days by being lazy (if possible) and go get a pedicure. Something to treat yourself and take your mind off the overdue part for at least just a few minutes.
I'm sure you ladies are getting all sorts of pressure from friends and family to have that baby already. It could be worse- you could be like Princess Kate who has an entire country waiting on her to have a baby. Try to relax as much as possible. Treat yourself to a pedicure or something as simple as a nap on the couch.
I was 8 days overdue with G. Just remember, perfection takes time!! Your baby knows just how and when to be born, but doesn't know about "due dates". I found that after the first several days of constant questions from family members and such, I started telling people I was just going to be pregnant forever and ever, and people got tired of asking and moved on to other things. I also got a kick out answering the "when are you due?" question from strangers in public. "A week ago" always got a range of humorous responses
