Were you good about waiting for labor? Or did you get really impatient?

I did really well until I hit 41 weeks. I just had this feeling that it wasn't time yet, so I wasn't really anxious. It helped a lot that I LOVED being pregnant and was still fairly comfortable even at almost 42 weeks, so I wasn't dying to be finished like a lot of moms are. But once I passed 41 weeks and I could see the deadline looming when the hospital demanded I had to be induced, I started panicking - desperately wanting to be in labor. If it were possible to WILL labor to begin, I would have been 9cm in under an hour bc I was so desperate

My daughter is perfect, but her birth was not. If you or someone you love is struggling to cope with a traumatic childbirth experience, please visit http://www.solaceformothers.org/

With my son, my water broke at 39 weeks. I was not expecting to go into labor at that point--my bag wasn't packed and I hadn't picked a pediatrician.

With my daughter, I was so ready to have the baby. It was so uncomfortable at the end. Part of the problem was that I was kind of expecting to go between 39-40 weeks but she wasn't born until 40w2d.

I was so impatient and was so glad to be induced! I hate being pregnant... me and pregnancy are NOT friends at all!! I was so sick with my first 3.. threw up from about the 6 week mark until the morning I delivered.. was hospitalized a few times with the first one.. had gestational diabetes with the first one.. TONS of back pain and pelvic pain with all of them.. just so ready to be done and be "normal again"... I'm going to be 20 weeks along with this one on Friday and I'm already impatient I'm nowhere near as sick with this one, but I'm already in a lot of pain.. back and pelvic pain.. I can't roll over at night without my hip and pelvic bones popping and I wake up every morning barely able to walk because of the back pain. Yup.. I'm ready to be done lol

I was procrastinating on a lot of things becausi had it set in
y mind I was going to go to 42 weeks but someone decided to come early....

I wasn't impatient by all means... or anxious... well I guess you could say I got anxious when my water broke because I kept thinking that it wasn't time that it was too soon. For her to be born....

I was super patient...I was 37w and ready to be pregnant for 5 more! I didn't want her to be born, I liked having her all to myself and being the only one who REALLY got to enjoy her. I was devastated when I found out she was coming..happy to meet her, but very sad.

I certainly don't feel patient in the last few weeks, but I've never even hit the 38 week mark, so I don't really know what being patient is

I'm in the part where I suck at waiting right now! I sucked in the past 3 pregnancies too!
