And would like to keep me company? Am 40+2 with no3 and whilst was happy for bubba not to come early, id really rather have liked her to come by now! Very grateful to be feeling well and sleeping well but impatient to meet her and could have introduced her to a lot of lovely people this weekend had she have come by now!!!

Yes me! 40+1 with no 2 sign of anything at all!

40+8 and losing my will to live grin

Cookie have you had a sweep yet? I gad one at 41 weeks with first so guessing that will happen this time

cookiemonster5678 Fri 17-Jan-14 13:40:18

Yep, made me bleed like hell and hurt a lot, my cervix wasn't quite ready only being 1cm dilated so doubt it will have any effect..

39+5 here with no 2

no 1 came at 41+1 so I expect it'll be another week. Still doesn't make the wait any more bearable!

40 +1 here and my diet is finally cracking - just made a batch of biscuits and ate 3 for lunch...oops. Plus MIL on my back ringing up.

38 weeks here and having induction scheduled on Thursday as I have a lot of back problems. Really don't want an induction! Had the most horrifying sweep yesterday, no dilation at all and got me to 2cm. Lots of show and cramping last night and now nothing!

39+6 with DC3...DC1 came at 40w exactly and DC2 arrived at 41+6. Really hope it goes like #1!

Fed up now TBH

Me! 40+2 as well today and told baby is on the big side today at my scan so now even more shock

Have my next mw appointment on Monday 40+5 and get the impression they won't discuss induction until 40+10. Will try to push on Monday for next week if at all possible.

itchyfootedmama24 Fri 17-Jan-14 15:35:32

I'm in! 41w today and no chance of sweeps as baby decided to' disengage' on her due date. Probably best as DD1 has been sick for the last week. Ready to get her out now as don't want induction sad
Any new magic ideas to get going apart from walking up hills and having sex?

merr Fri 17-Jan-14 17:15:51

Hello! I'm 40+14, induction tomorrow, done everything to try and make this one come without induction but she's not playing along...

Ja9 Fri 17-Jan-14 17:20:32

Where I am they induce at 40+12. That's arranged with midwives at 41wks.

Percypiglet Fri 17-Jan-14 17:54:09

Am 39+6 today, with 1st baby......bored now with everyone calling and texting....

YoMamma Fri 17-Jan-14 18:03:06

40+1 here and thought things were kicking off earlier but it all came to nothing sad. I've been getting BH on and off for weeks and am really uncomfortable.

Percy I hear you with the texts and phone calls. I'm just ignoring my phone from now on. With DD1 I had to tell DH to ask MIL to stop ringing. Hopefully she'll remember this time!

TonksLupin Fri 17-Jan-14 19:31:08

Lost my plug about an hour ago, nothing at all happening though. Hope something starts to happen!

MrsHowardRoark Fri 17-Jan-14 19:36:50

Checking in too. I'm 40+6 and very ready for this baby now.

DD was 41 weeks so I'm hoping no2 puts in an appearance soon. I'm booked for a home birth so I need her to show up before 42 weeks or I'll have to get stroppy with the midwives.

GinotPrigio Sat 18-Jan-14 08:40:48

Anyone had any movement overnight? If one more person tells me to drink raspberry lead tea I will scream confused

Ja9 Sat 18-Jan-14 10:39:06

Another night of nothing! I'm missing out on a family get together today as it's about an hour away... Dc have gone to it... Have spent the morning snoozing and watching events unfold on sky news

itchyfootedmama24 Sat 18-Jan-14 10:48:41

Woken up vomiting sad labour or gastritis... either way feel shit.

TonksLupin Sat 18-Jan-14 13:57:42

Hope it's labour Itchy! I've woken up with a cough and sore throat, don't feel like doing anything today

Karen1226 Sat 18-Jan-14 15:02:46

Hi, I'm only 38+4 but had the best nights sleep last night that I've had in weeks but then woke up with diahaerreoa and just can't get comfy but no pains. Hoping this maybe the start but most likely just a bug.

itchyfootedmama24 Sat 18-Jan-14 15:07:02

Bit weird really... 2 big vomits, a bit of diarrhea and feel like I may have flu accompanied by cramps and what I think are contractions. This is my second, I should know a contraction but I can't really be sure. Its probably just gastro and wishful thinking!
Tonks I hope you feel better soon. I've had that cough and sore throat for a week now. If I have a baby you can call it pre labour smile

YoMamma Sat 18-Jan-14 15:09:18

I also had a great night's sleep last night. I was asleep by 9:30 and didn't wake up at all until DD started stirring at 7am! I feel so refreshed and DH and parents not working over the weekend so today would be a perfect day for labour to start sooooo obviously it won't. I have another sweep booked at the midwife on Monday so fingers crossed that will get things moving.

GinotPrigio Sat 18-Jan-14 15:11:53

Itchy & Karen - hope the upset tums are a sign of things moving

Tonks - anything since your show last night?

I have the most intense pressure and odd stabby pains in my pelvis today but no obvious contractions. I'm going to drive myself crazy with symptom watching. I need to relax!!
