    2 days til due date, and it feels like an eternity, it feels worse than it did when there was 2 months to go! It's all I can think of and the waiting it killing me! I know baby will come in his/her own time and I know that I only have a maximum of just over 2 weeks if I go over my due date but I am so restless and impatient!!! Keep crying and I am so bored and uncomfortable! :cry: sorry for ranting ladies I feel like its all I do on here at the minute but just can't help it! Twice weekly consultant appointments now due to raised bp that has now settled, and every time I go they just say "see you in 3 days for another review" and this is making things drag even more!!!

    Aaahh I just think it's one of those things you just really ready for it to happen now, like when people say it's so close (your duedate is only 2 days away) but yet feels so far away (because really baby could make you go over due and that's another 2 weeks) it's totally natural, I too am due soon and can't wait for it to just Happen! Lol I feel I'm going to be overdue as I'm due tomorrow and don't feel like labour is any closer but at my appointment on Monday I'm going to ask for a cervical check I feel like I NEED to know something's happening! Lol don't worry this baby waiting WILL be over soon..xx

    Lol thanks hun, it's nice to know I'm not alone feeling like this! I have a sweep booked for Tuesday at 40+1 and hoping they will tell me then about how my cervix is doing haha! Can't believe after 9 months of waiting he/she is almost here but just feels so so far away still! And I am such a control freak the not knowing when it will happen makes it even worse haha! X

    I feel the same xxxx I'm due today, it's mainly the chronic hb that's getting me down, I'm due today and no signs yet! I've got a sweep booked for 41 weeks and I have a feeling I will be having it! Xxx

    Haha I know, if we knew the exact date baby would be here I think it would make it more bearable! Even if it was 10 days away etc it would make it easier I think! Lol x

    When I got mine done it didn't hurt was a bit uncomfy but I think that was because I had a mw who had fat fingers do mine lol and she kept trying to put more fingers in! I actually thought she was going to attempt to put her whole hand in and asked her to stop lol but if she didn't do that I'm sure it would of been less uncomfy...And straight after I felt really crampy...labour does hurt but nothing us ladies can't handle :) although at the time we think we can't, I'm going to ask for a sweep at 41weeks if baby hasn't arrived yet..x

    Have to admit I'm nervous of having a sweep just cause I've never had one and I've heard good and bad experiences on here. Just the thought of how it's done does turn my stomach a bit I have to admit! But I'll try anything not to have to be induced this time as my last labour I was and I really hope to avoid that this time xx

    Yes although I am not looking forward to having a sweep I hope it gets labour going! I also know the hospital staff so am a bit worried about looking like a wuss n front of them if it hurts hahaha! X

    I think it's because the only "target" we have to aim for is baby :haha: When we first find out, we want to get to second tri where you feel more safe, once you're there there's V day, then you get to look forward to third tri. Once you're third you look forward to being term, once you're term there's only your due date to look forward to and knowing that you can/probably will go over it is too much. It's not a definite date like everything else.

    Also I think the fact that by the time you're this point you're shattered, can't sleep properly, uncomfortable 99% of the time and just want baby out. That certainly doesn't help :haha:

    Haha! I have tried pineapple, raspberry leaf tea, hot curry, bouncing on ball for hours, sex, running up and down stairs, star jumps, and nothing at all has worked haha! I haven't tried castor oil as I hear it can cause meconium so I am avoiding it! Think this baby is waiting until Christmas haha! X

    Read some baby books, make and freeze some meals for those first days with baby, do some deep cleaning or organizing in the house (if body allows it), do some pampering for yourself (bubble bath, pedicure).

    D day will be here before you know it. :)
