How to take my mind off it?

Baby due today, was induced with my other children because I was very overdue. I'm driving myself mad constantly thinking and googling about how to start labour even though I know it all already, and googling symptoms etc. I need to calm the F down but not sure how 😞

I wouldn't just pretend my due date is two weeks from now.
That's what I'm doing this time, due middle of march but I say April to myself

I was like that and think I will be this time! I tried everything and couldn't stop looking at the calendar even though I knew what day it was but just time watching constant!! There's nothing you can really do, I think hot currys and walks etc are a load or shite. Do you have a sweep booked? That's something to look toward.

Otherwise try and stay calm and focus on something, a game on your phone, a book? I literally started doing cross stitch the last 2 weeks because I was so on edge waiting for the big day that never seemed to arrive, it really helped and took my mind off stuff.

I was like that at first however baby is huge as were my other two so they kept saying they wouldn't let me go overdue! However they changed their minds 😧 so now I feel overdue as I thought I would have had him by now! I'm struggling to concentrate on reading, I might get a cross stitch kit, used to love doing them, thanks
