so frustrated!! Dani Bryant-Murray TTC since Jul 2013; 17 kids; Manchester, New Hampshire 285 posts

I am due dec 17th.... needless to say that was 3 days ago. I am watching all my friends around me who are due after me having their babies and as happy as I am for them, I am SO jealous and start feeling down. I feel like I'm failing at going into labor. I go back and forth between being content to let my baby bake and then I just want him here. I want my body to be comfortable again, I want to hold me baby, I want to hug my husband close again rather than bending over at the waist and trying to reach him over my big belly. Iguess this is more of a rant than anything else. Ok, I'm done.

I've been where you are (11 days overdue!) and I know what you're feeling!!! Hang in there momma! You can't be pregnant forever remember, and when he/she comes it's totally worth the wait!!!!

My last baby was 4 days overdue! I took that route as opposed to being induced a 3rd time and it was the easiest labor/delivery/recovery of all 3 of my kids! And it was fast! My water broke at like 3 am, got to the hospital at 6 am and was already 5-6 cm, he was born at 11 am.

I know almost exactly how you feel! I'm so there. Except I still have 9 days left.

thanks ladies. I guess I just needed to put it out there. I am trying to stay positive and appreciative for what I have and the blessings that this child and pregnancy are in my life.... Hormones just make being rational and keeping my emotions in check a real chore lately. I am glad to hear that I am not the only one who feels this way!

I so know how you feel right now. Baby is due tomorrow and my Midwife sounded very discouraged by the fact that I haven't dilated or effaced anymore. I feel like I am failing as well. This is my first baby and for some reason I was convinced I'd have him by now. Hang in there mama, they have to come out sometime lol!

I feel ya. I went 42 weeks with my first before I went into labor. No induction though I just let her come on her own. It drove me nuts waiting that long . Because of how I felt being that late with my next two kids I tolled myself there REAL due dates were two weeks past the due date I was given. It worked great with my second she ended up being 10 days late but it didn't bug me . With my third it backfired since he came three weeks early and I was not prepared for that lol! Ohh well all in all the mind set worked.

lol, well don't hold this one in on my account! If you're ready, I think you deserve this baby out of you! Atleast you'll get a little vacation at the hospital for a few days away from the chaos of your two other little mess makers :) Are you making any progress? I thought you had said something about getting induced, but I could be making that up in my head.... the old noodle isn't working like it used to! lol

I'm two cm and the doctor said the baby is extremely low and ready, it's just waiting for the time to come. I can request induction at my next appt on Thursday, but I've heard the list is a mile long!
