So my cervix shrank! That's not helping my LO get out!! I was down to 1.5cm today. The MW said it was probably stress. My kids have been sick, DH was in a car accident, money is suddenly tight. So I'm to relax. Anyway, I have a 41 week appt. next Tuesday and if I'm still preggo, I'll get an induction date. If I have to be induced, I'm now OK with it. I've done my part to wait and give baby time. It wouldn't be until around the 15th-18th anyway. Baby is doing well, has plenty of fluid and my placenta is still nourishing him well. I guess he's just super cozy in there!

I think I'm going to try to find an acupuncturist in my area. If that doesn't work, maybe it will at least help my relax!

I'd definitely go for an accupuncturist and maybe a massage too. I hope you go into labor on your own soon!!

Poor thing! I hope things settle down so you can relax and that LO can come out of the comfort of your belly to the comfort of your arms. HUGS!

No wonder you are stressed, that is a lot to handle! I think getting accupuncture would be a great idea. Here's to hoping you LO can make an appearance on his own... and soon!

See, it's like your body knew it wasn't the right time for him to arrive. Good luck finding an accupuncturist. I'm sure now that things are calming down if you can relax a little he'll be here soon! Still crossing all my crossables for ya! HOpefully you will go on your own and won't need them to induce.
