    well my friend carly who is a member on here but never posted had her little boy cody yesterday.

    she was due 4th jan but after weeks of pain and not being able to walk at all (severe SPD) she was finally induced at 37+3.

    A BIG congratulations to her and i am sooooo proud of her after all she has gone through!!!

    Now i feel totally selfish and a total BITCH for feeling like this but it seems that everyone due around the same time or even after me has had their baby.

    I want my lo here safe and sound and if she needs to be in there the full 40wks so be it but i just have this gut feeling she isnt going to arrive on her own and i am going to still be sitting here till the second week in Jan and then them have to induce me, my edd is the 30th dec.

    i havent really had any signs, well people say i have but they all stopped and nothing seems to be happening and then finding out in 3weeks my lo hasnt moved from the brim its just so dishartening especially when i do a min 3 mile walk everyday, even in the pain i am in! I worry i will panic in labour but i just want it to happen or at least have a sign that she is going to be coming in the next 2 weeks.

    i feel like a walking time bomb and today its really getting to me :cry:

    I'm with you Hun! Fed up and want to pop. NOW! But as Pinkfly has said, take comfort and hope in the thought that things could just take off very suddenly without warning.

    I'm 39 weeks with number 3 and absolutely no signs whatsoever. I hope to wake up tonight with pains! LOL.

    Here's some labour dust to get you on your way...

    PS Have you a gym ball to bounce on, encourage the head to engage?

    Don't worry, you'll get there. I'm 39 + 3 today and my baby is still not engaged and despite having a second sweep on Tuesday after which the midwife and consultant both got excited as 'my cervix was very favourable' (!) nothing has happened and I don't feel like its suddenly going to. I'm being induced on 22nd Dec so that makes me feel a bit better but I would prefer baby to decide to come by himself rather than being evicted.

    My only advice is to focus on enjoying Christmas and the fact there will be an end point even its still a couple of weeks. I think relaxing about it is more likely to bring things on rather than getting worried/stressed about it taking ages. And at least our babies should be robust and much less likely to have any problems.

    thanks ladies.

    its weird because one day i want her here now and the next i'm like wow time slow down.

    i just think todays been one of them days.

    Decided to blitz the living room in the hope to take my mind off it all, but seeing as it took me 2 hours (20mins spent stuck on the floor cause i couldnt get myself up) its still there.

    hopfully i will wake up tomorrow and think oh times going to fast lol.

    stilleto_sam: no birthing ball cant afford one atm :(

    :hugs: Hope LO arrives soon!
    And there isn't always any "signs" I was surfing the internet at midnight feeling perfect when there was a pop and my water broke. Until that moment I had no pains, no clearout, nothing. All that started the minute my water broke LOL...
