I'm sure many of you on here can relate to how I'm feeling. Based on original dates doc gave me I am now 40+4 (he later changed it and didn't tell me, so then would be 40+2). I had a sweep on Tuesday, sex Sunday and yesterday and used breast pump for a bit on Monday (until I saw a bead of colostrum and panicked hahaha). Trying lots of walking and bouncing on my yoga ball as well. Am also already about 3cm dilated (as of Tuesday) and doc said cervix was softening. I refuse to try castor oil unless I am desperate (plus my body is already doing its own clear out, so not much left in me haha!) I get a LOT of pain at night- usually tightening or sharp pain in my cervix/bum hole, as well as pain in my back and abdomen, but I don't think I've had any actual contractions, but have had a few BH. I think I'm so frustrated because it's all people talk to me about so it's a constant reminder. Plus, everyone was certain I was gonna be early (in my baby pool, today was the latest guess!) so I think I just had it in my mind that I would be; not to mention the fact that the other 7 ladies pregnant that were due near me were all early (from a few days to a few weeks!) and now it's just me! Got invited to a baby play date with them all next Wednesday- IF he shows up by then! I really wanted him out before Saturday so I could go to my family's thanksgiving dinner and introduce him to everyone-my SIL had a baby a couple of months ago, so seeing him at family functions is a constant reminder to me (and everyone else there!) that my baby hasn't come yet. I just feel really disappointed. Everyone tells me to enjoy my last few days of quality time with him, but it's really hard when every time I touch my tummy, he moves and it HURTS! Alright, there's my pity party! I sympathize with all you ladies who are more overdue than me!!
