I went about 4 1/2 hours past my EDD so *technically* I count... but not really. I felt pretty good physically and emotionally, but I was very ready. I think I would have felt dreadful if I'd gone much longer - my doctor was really stressing me out and I was glad to avoid an induction.
How are/were you feeling physically? I was exhausted from the constant contractions and I swear even water was giving me heartburn towards the end
How are/were you feeling emotionally? I was so depressed because although I had gone past my EDD with my first I had gone earlier with my second and third so never did I ever think I would be late. I had an irritable uterus so it felt like I spent all of December in early labor and I just couldn't emotionally handle being pregnant anymore.
How far past edd are you/did you go? I am 8 days past my due date.
How are/were you feeling physically? Physically I feel ok; my hips and pelvis are hurting me a lot, but I'm otherwise fine.
How are/were you feeling emotionally? Emotionally, I feel fed up. I don't want one more person telling me how to get the baby out or asking me why I'm still at work or commenting on how my stomach is small so probably they made a mistake about the due date, etc., etc., etc. There has been all kinds of confusion about maternity leave which just got resolved today, but not happily (they told me 13 weeks and then took it back down to 6, which is hard to deal with).
We have an induction scheduled for Tues 2/7 in case nothing happens before then. I am working thru Friday, and cannot wait to be outta there for a while!!!
How are/were you feeling physically?
Tired, hard to get around, had a lot of bladder pain and horrible reflux :/ everytime I rolled over in the bed I could hear my bones cracking and popping and they hurt!
How are/were you feeling emotionally?
A few days before I was due, I decided to just accept the fact that he was gonna come when he was ready and to just move on lol. I was tired of trying things to make him come out because I knew they wouldn't work lol. The morning I had him, when I got up, it was just like any other day. I wasn't even thinking about having a baby. I think accepting it really helped lol
