A lot of first time moms can go overdue. It could possibly change overnight, but it will happen soon. Hold on a little longer, the wait will be worth it!

It can change in minutes. Don't give up hope, it WILL happen. Most first babies go a little overdue. Take your time now to rest up and get other thins in order so when LO gets here, you won't have anything else to worry about.

I was the exact same way, with showing no signs of labor (except I lost my mucus plug three weeks before labor). Then I ended up having really inconsistant contractions all day when I was 39+5, my water broke late that night, and I had my Son the next morning. Sometimes there are little to no signs of labor, but that doesnt mean your LO wont be here anytime. Just hang in there mama!

I can change very quickly. I wasn't dilated with my first at my 39 week check up either and didn't have any signs until the day before labor. I had her one day after my due date.

Just enjoy the time you have left. I was sick of being pregnant too, but at 38.5 weeks I ended up with a surprise induction for pre-eclampsia and even though I wanted to meet her, I wasn't ready for it to be over. I wish I would have enjoyed my last days of being pregnant more, because I miss it like crazy now.
