I was due July 8th and I'm here still pregnant. I'm in a bad mood because I'm so hot and uncomfortable and my DH hasn't been even a little understanding. He says I need to snap out of my mood and try to enjoy myself. Right.
I really want an unmedicated delivery which means I need to wait for my body to go into labor on its own, but I'm running out of strength. I want this baby out now!! I'm starting to think my body doesn't know how to go into labor on its own. I'm so discouraged.
I felt that way with my LO. I waited until I was 42 weeks overdue and ended up with c-section rather than the natural, unmedicated delivery that I wanted. I was told afterwards that with the size of my pelvis and the baby, as well as the fact that my cervix was still almost totally closed, I probably would not have gone into labour on my own and it would have been an extremely long delivery even if induced.
I was totally crushed at the time I made the decision to go ahead with the c-section because I wanted to experience going into labour and having a natural delivery. However, I did what I felt was best for both baby and I, and now that he's here it doesn't really matter and I have no regrets. Don't feel bad or guilty if you are fed up or if you ultimately end up with an induction or even a c-section. You'll forget all about it once your little one is here.
I am so sorry. I would be frustrated too. Just think about the long road and know that another few days or even week is a small amount once your baby arrives and you have him/her forever!!! I hope baby decides to come soon!

You poor thing!! I was induced two weeks past due with dd#1 and she was scheduled to be induced on Dec 30th.. then, they bumped us back to Dec 31st. That was the longest day EVER!!! I know how frustrating it can be and people's comments and questions don't help. Hang in there!!! take a REALLY long nap or bath if you can
