I'm being a total baby about this, but I'm soooo disappointed right now.. I'm soo sick of being pregnant...I feel like I am overdue since my son was early. And to think I could still be pregnant for another 4 weeks makes me want to scream!!!! I've been checking my own cervix...and when I can actually reach it, I can tell its about 3 cm dilated top to bottom (previously the bottom was a lot easier to reach and was like 6cm...but I think that was before I effaced much). I can touch her head sometimes. But no change in dilation or position or anything in like 3 days. Went to the mw today and she couldn't even reach my cervix. This SUCKS...and I'm being sooo whiny, but I just want to cry. My stupid dad bet that she would be born today at 4:45...stupid. I feel like there is no way she'll born this month. Please someone make me feel better!

Well, if it helps you can think about poor me with 6 (yes, count 'em 6) weeks left to go. Uhhg!

I hear you though. Pregnancy can be rough in those last few weeks.

Awww...I can only imagine what it is like to have an early baby and then an on time baby. Hang in there...you can do this!

I feel your pain. Fritz was 10 days late. Keep repeating over and over the baby will come when she's ready. She obviously needs this time to mature and grow.

i was 4 cm and 100% for 12 days with Lily.

I was a fingertip dilated and 50% at my 39 week appt with Felicity. Three days later I had her in an hour and 15 minutes. However dilated or effaced you are, it does not necessarily matter. But you know that!

Do not lose hope. Baby is coming!

Thank you BAM for my signature!!

Its tough & these last days & weeks are sure to drag on forever... but when baby is ready & decides to come, then it will all seem like such a small amount of time in the scope of it all

Its tough, these last weeks of pg ARE hard - mentally & physically. Im sure its natures way of making us look forward to the birth even more so

The last days are the hardest. I was 4 weeks 'late' and my brother was 3 weeks 'late' - my poor mom. I had my first 2 were 'late' and the twins were induced at 36 weeks. So, I can understand. Expecting to be expecting any moment wears on your mind and attitude like nothing else.

The one thing that helped me is savoring every moment that I could feel baby still inside of me, knowing that this life is being nurtured by me, kind of like my own little secret that no one but I get to take care of. That helped make it through those last days... somewhat.
