You are certainly not the only one overdue, though, I know you said it is something you feel and you know this logically. I have ALWAYS gone overdue, with all three of my kids. I am not overdue yet (due on the 6th of Feb), but I am also not expecting any action before my due date. Labour is such a mystery, and the less I try to understand what is going on, the happier I am. As long as baby is moving and you are feeling OK (I mean, aside from the usual end-term discomfort and pain), then your body is doing precisely what it should be doing.
Hugs to you!

Oh, and I've shared this before, but will again: Send people this link when they ask if baby is here yet. Nothing else: just this: http://haveyouhadthatbabyyet.com/

Haha that's brilliant! I think people will think I'm spamming them but it could be a baby photo for all they know

I had so many messages over the weekend, so I went on Facebook and checked in as having gone for a walk...seems to has satisfied peoples curiosity for now lol. But rest of the week I'm staying off the radar! Keep then guessing.

I had someone ask me my induction date yesterday made me feel really uncomfortable which is silly right?? I told her sorry but we actually don't wanna tell anyone as it can be a long process but she can be assured baby will be arriving next week so wait until then to hear...

It doesn't matter I know but i don't want everyone knowing where I am and when I am going....

I totally understand the impulse, though perhaps not for exactly the same reasons (or maybe they are the same!). In fact, with this 4th pregnancy, I have not even mentioned it on social media or in conversation with so many of my friends. So, unless they have seen me, they won't know I'm even pregnant. (And even if they did see me a few months ago, I may have not looked pregnant. I don't tend to get that big, and I didn't pop until 6 weeks ago).

I am not hiding this pregnancy, and I am certainly not upset about it, but I find I enjoy my life more when I don't feel the need to position it in relation to everyone else's expectations.

I havenít told anyone when my section is either, last thing you want is everyone texting and calling when baby arrives and wanting to come by/know whatís happening! We didnít tell anyone outside of immediate family when my daughter arrived for about 4/5 days and it was so lovely and peaceful! X

Ladies such a nice thing when people don't know right?! Everyone on my Facebook is family or work or forum friends from websites....but they are still very annoying lol! Even my gran had messaged this morning saying 'No baby yet' but she didn't deserve a sarcastic response so I was nice lol! We have also discussed not telling anyone when the baby arrives. My parents and MIL are the only people who know the induction date and even then if all is healthy and running smoothly we have decided to give ourselves some time before we tell everyone. We may tell the parents after half an hour or an hour....I just want to enjoy baby plonked on my chest without thinking "Oh we need to text our mums" ....that'll be nice

Still nothing today! Not disturbed by any pains in the night this time, woken up yet again starving so may go fix that for myself lol. Urghhh such a shame!

I just put a post on facebook for people to make their guesses on when baby will arrive and it's all been contained to that so no one (apart from my mum this morning) bugging me to know if I'm in labour yet or not.

Get the anxiety too, everything is looking fine (had midwife this morning) but can't help but feel more and more anxious every day.

Natsku I'm so happy to meet others who are overdue and may go into labour whether its natural or induced quite close to me...it's nice to share the emotional burden of feeling anxious and worried! This pregnancy is just not what I expected at all so far in regards to the third trimester. It doesnt help that I get people saying

Omg you haven't lost your mucous plug yet?
Omg, so your waters haven't broke yet?
Omg so you haven't really had any Braxtons hicks yet?
Omg I feel so sorry for you

I really don't need sympathy lol. I'm fine...I'm comfy apart from at night...it's really silly to assume that I'm uncomfortable and want this baby out.

Yes I want my baby out but because I want to meet him or her and move onto the next phase of our family. No other reason so I'm lucky maybe to most days when I'm sat down...not even feel pregnant!

I haven't made a Facebook announcement yet and Jackson is a week old (NZ time) tomorrow. MIGHT announce tomorrow but I don't know. But I've had a few people who have been pissed off that knew I was pregnant but haven't told them straight away. Given the rush he arrived in and the situation in my personal life at the moment, I just wanted to keep him to myself for a bit so his father and I have only told our parents and siblings.

Darn it Bonnie11! I've not posted much these last few days but I've been lurking in the background to see if there has been an announcement from you. I've been getting excited for you!!
