I never imagined myself going to my due date.... let alone past it. I've done all the little things to get the ball rolling and this kid isnt budging. She's still high. I've been losing that nasty mucus plug the past 3 days to my dismay. I was hoping that meant I dilated more instead of being stuck at 2-3 cm. We tried induction at 39w 4d but baby didn't come down and my cervix stayed 2-3 so they sent me home to wait.

I didn't know it would be so depressing to still be pregnant. x.x

Why not just wait? Due dates are estimates, not deadlines

Audrianna never dropped until after my water fully broke and I was only 1 cm dilated till my water broke. She was born at 40 weeks 4 days.

I was induced 39 weeks for medical reason and it took 3 day they tried everything they finally broke my water on the 3rd day of induction. And when they checked me less the 30 mins latter my son was like crowning and they were all yelling at in to STOP. This was my firest child so the Doctors eye'e went like this :shock::shock::shock:. They had also given me morphine right before breaking my water so of course my son came out doped up on morphine.....

I know the whole hurry up and wait sucks. But she'll come out. I promise she won't stay in there forever just give it a little time. Labor dust!

This is the last of my due dates. I still vow she was due June 18th. I have had many health problems with this pregnancy and would really like to be done. Baby is fine, I am not, but my doctor is allowing me to ignore my health problems because I'm not in the dangerous zone completely. They didn't break my water because she was high so they sent me home. They're going to try induction again at 40w 3d and he said this time I have to deliver no matter what.

I just wish she would come on down on her own over this weekend. Even if she doesn't come out, I just need her to engage so they can break my water and she can come on out.

Dr Abraham...

Love him to death, but I feel like he cheated me by not doing meds on my cervix and only trying pitocin for 8 hours. I was making progress contrary to what they said. Had I stayed and toughed it out I bet she would have been born wednesday.

The Women's Center is pretty and all but there are so many rules! I really wanted a natural birth so I could do the jacuzzi (which are in every room I've found out) but they don't let you do them if you're on Pitocin. So unfair.

I kinda know what you mean, with my daughter I went preterm 3 times but they got it stopped (29,32 &35) then i guess she decided that since she couldnt come out on her own time she wouldnt come out on ours either I didnt end up popping til 41 weeks, but that last little while of aiting it torture... I started to feel like i was going to be pregnant FOREVER!
I remember laying there pleading with baby to come out..I just didnt ant to be pregnant any more... I wouldnt however let them use the inducing drugs (nothing againt women that use them, just a personal choice) I also didnt want them to break my water but after 38 hrs of labour they figured out that my waters werent going to break on their own and thats what was taking soooo long, so after they broke my waters it was like magic! This time ive asked that my waters be broken as early as possible if they dont break on their own so there arent just hours of labour for nothing.
I know you probably feel like your going to be pregnant forever (probably feel like youve already been pregnant forever) but although you probably getting to the point that you want to start charging rent, you wont be pregnant indefinatly, and although i hate this answer "baby will come when he/she is ready... that just might not be when works for you... GOOD LUCK!!!!!!!

They can break your water without her being engaged. They were going to break my water to prevent infection after it started leaking (it was a high leak) and Audrianan wasn't engaged at all.

I didn't contract on my own after my water broke, but my body is just wierd. lol Well let me rephrase that. I was contracting just not regularly or having hard enough contractions.
