Please tell me it is so! Am 37+ weeks, loaded with the cold and my ds (22 months) has just come down with chickenpox! Luckily both me and DP have had it before, so should be immune. But I haven't slept well for weeks and feel like absolute crap - and am paranoid that I'm going to top it all by going into labour - please tell me your body knows better than to do that!
DH and I both had very heavy colds when I was due with number 3. Every day we said the baby couldn't come and she didn't... for 2 whole weeks. One day DH said the baby could come but changed his mind by lunchtime. The day that DH said it would be ok if the baby wanted to make an appearance was the day I went into labour! She was born at 42 weeks and was a super 9'5.
When I was expecting dd1 I got myself in a real state as we were v delayed in putting her furniture together. I was only 35 weeks or so, but was ranting that I was about to go into labour. I never did go into labour, was induced at 41+3.
Hope all goes well for you. The chicken pox will be over in a few days, as will the cold. This time next week you will be starting another thread asking for tips on how to get things moving.
I hate to tell you this but I had Laringytus (sp?) and a REALLY heavy cold and I went into labour at 38+3........ Everyoe was telling me that baby would wait, body knows best etc etc, well, they were very wrong, turns out Baby knows best!
