Fourth you ask? Your body is still full of pregnancy hormones as you adjust to life sleep-deprived with your new baby outside your womb.

How many weeks/days were you when you had your baby---I'm 38 1/2 weeks and DYING for this baby to come.

My midwife told me to expect to go a week late---I'm just wondering if there is hope that I might still go early---this weekend would be nice! :D

Probably not what you wanted to hear.

Waiting is hard, but go out to dinner while you still can! God, I miss sitting in an actual restaurant! ;)

Luke arrived at 38w5d (but I was induced b/c of PIH :wink: )

I agree with the pp ~ I know you're dying to meet your little one but enjoy going places without packing the entire house... enjoy eating an entire meal while it's still hot... I could go on and on :)

Good luck on your upcoming bundle of joy!!! I hope your L&D goes wondeful! :)

Oh boy! I remember a time when I was sooo anxious for LO to just get here already. He always measured big and I thought he would come early. He came at 39 weeks 3 days. I would take all the PP advice. Enjoy your sleep if you can and enjoy movies and going out to dinner. Once he was out I wanted to put him back in. :lol:

i was induced at 41W2D ... i wonder every single day how long i would have gone without being induced, it kills me! even at 9 days passed due... i hadn't even began dilating or softening!

good luck... you'll be holding your little one in no time and missing your belly :wink:

THIS!!!

I had DD on her due date so I guess that would be 40 weeks even.

(though it was my calculated due date based on O and conception -- I was charting -- my "official" due date at the ob based on LMP was 5 days past that. Guess we know who was right, eh? ;))

I was not dilated or effaced at all when i saw my doc around 37 weeks, he told me that i most likey i would not be having this baby anytime soon. I was so depressed. He told me i would most likely go over my due date and then we would have to induce because he thought my baby was very large. Well about a week later at 38 weeks 2 days my water broke. So there is hope, ya never know. But like others said enjoy your sleep right now, and rest up.

I was 39w5d. I agree with the others, enjoy time alone with your husband and sleep while you can get it! :)

ETA: Water broke at 39w5d.

I went into labor at 40 weeks exactly according to my LMP... interesting bc my doctors said my due date was 8 days later than that. Looks like i was right!
