Overdue & thoroughly fed up

Anybody else overdue, fed up and would like to share their moans tales of wisdom/tips/experience? Baby #2 was due Saturday, still no sign despite two false alarms where contractions have abruptly stopped. Have tried every old wives tale imaginable and frankly if somebody told me that popping a broom up my arse and running round the garden would get this baby out, I'd be willing to try it!!!

*FWIW, Baby #1 was a week late!

Full term is 37-42 weeks, so the 40 week due date is merely the midpoint of the 37-42 full term. So, once you realise you're not actually overdue but baby is getting properly ready for this world, and not coming on the exact midpoint of a 5 week range, maybe it will be easier to accept? smile

Meeeee! I'm also waiting for DC2 to make an appearance, I'm 11 days over and beyond fed up. Just spaffed £15 on some bloody clary sage oil which has done eff all. I knew it was bunkum but you get so desperate you'll try anything

DD was 8 days over so I was expecting to go late this time, but not this late. I've also been in early labour since my first stretch & sweep on Wednesday and am 3cm but nothing is properly getting started.

Plus, DH has a rotten cold and DD has chicken pox. Argh!

My son was late, I spent three days bring induced because nothing was happening and I was waiting for a delivery room. One night the woman in the room next to me gave birth in her room (because there were no delivery rooms). My legs failed on me because I was so pissed off and jealous!!!
I'd quite like this one to be late as she's due Christmas Day but hope my legs don't get too depressed!!!!
