    My biggest worry on top of how frustrating it is is that 2 weeks probably = 2lbs extra of baby! makes my eyes water thinking about it! I dont even feel like he is coming any time soon I feel too normal! xx

    My last baby was born back to back i still went into labour normally, try scrubbing some floors or rocking on all fours to get it to shift round! my last Mw Appointment on monday she said my body wasnt ready for labour yet and my cervix is closed and tucked behind babies head, I came out :cry: I'm sure she relished in telling me though, what is it with some of these midwives! I felt like poking her in the eye xxx

    I am due to today so nearly overdue and I have been having contractions back pain etc for the last 3 weeks and still nothing. Back to back and not engaged doesn't mean you will be late. The baby can still come even if you are not engaged, this is very common in second pregnancies.

    Also babies and mothers tend to stop putting on weight in the last month or so of pregnancies. Some babies will even lose weight inside the womb.

    At least you know the baby will be here 2 weeks after the due date. It will be fly by in the grand scheme of life. x

    Looks like I will be having a sweep again.

    Hope you go asap! xxx

    Oh dear, I can really sympathise with you being a serial overduer myself!

    I agree that MW's really do deserve a poke in the eye! Don't let her upset you! Mine told me at nearly 37 weeks I was going to be early - then I delivered at 40 + 4. The same cowbag told my mate she was in early labour - she got induced 3 weeks later!

    Yes, why do some midwives have such an attitude? The one I saw at 38 weeks sounded delighted as she said 'the head is not engaged AT ALL!' as if it was funny! I know they deal with pregnant women every day but to us every little thing is a big deal!

    Hi Sarah - I was due yesterday but kept assuming this little one would be 7-10 days early! Now that I'm officially overdue I'm trying everything to get her out but shes tooooo comfy in there!
