2 days past due date... Jessi and her love bird Due May 17; Whittier, California 60 posts

I was due on 5/18 and had a checkup yesterday. My cervix is soft, but still high and completely closed. The baby has dropped a little, but not enough.



Has anyone gone past their due date with a closed cervix and then had their baby in the next few days? I'm hoping things get moving SOON! :cry:

youre not 'over due'
over due is when you go past 42 weeks.
youre a few days past your estimated due date. which can be off.

I'm scared because I'm planning a natural water birth with a midwife in a freestanding birth center with no interventions, and it looks like this kid is just way too comfy.



I DON'T WANT TO GO TO A HOSPITAL! Of course, I will if baby is in danger, but I don't wanna! I have an appointment for an ultrasound and fetal monitoring on Tuesday to make sure it's safe to stick to our birth plan. I'm hoping she'll decide to come out before then. :)

Ok, I changed my post title! :lol:



I'm just concerned that I am "due" and it seems like nothing is happening.

When did you begin to dilate?

How frustrating! Have you been contracting at all? I haven't. :(
Good luck to you, too! Are they planning to induce you?
