Not wanting labor to start Brookie99 1 child; Fort McMurray, Alberta 1126 posts

I feel like the odd one out of all the pregnant people I know and everyone I know who has been pregnant. Im almost 39 weeks and I just want her to stay in there... I keep having signs that Im going to go into labor soon and I would quite honestly be happy going to 41 weeks before I have her. I keep having contractions that aren't consistent and stop after a while and when that happens I keep thinking to myself "No you still have almost a week and a half left!" All I hear about are people having sex and walking lots to get labor going at this stage but I feel like I just need to keep her in there. I have no idea why I feel like this, the thought of labor doesn't scare me and we are fully prepared and everything is ready for her. Maybe its because I've had such an awesome and easy pregnancy... Someone please be able to relate and tell me Im not crazy!

It'll be so cool. All my kids didn't go past 40 weeks. My son was close to 40 weeks. I kinda wanna feel the agony of waiting for my LO to come. I told myself I am not gonna make myself do anything until my baby comes.

I'm only 16 weeks.. but I want this one to stay put as long as possible! 42 weeks would be nice.. I'm in no hurry lol.. that's because I'm not looking forward to labour again :P Also love having a baby living inside of me, love feeling it move (haven't with this one yet but I loved it with DD) even love the big pregnant belly

Im the same way, I am enjoying being pregnant but everyone always seems to be in such a hurry to start labor once they get close to their due date and make me feel like Im crazy for not wanting her to come now if she's ready. My mom keeps asking me if Im "over" being pregnant yet.

I was the same with DD. I was surprised when I went into labour at 40 w 3 d lol.. didn't get to the impatient point at all. I really hated the 'you're STILL pregnant' No not still pregnant just carry the kid under my shirt taped to my belly :roll:
or 'when you going to pop that baby out' ... that one made me actually want to slap a b***h lol

Lol I haven't had any comments like that but I did have a family member tell me three weeks ago that I should drink Castor oil and walk lots and have sex so I could have my baby while she was here visiting since I was "already 35 weeks". It was all I could do to not ask her if she was seriously that much of an idiot.

Ive been the same way with this pregnancy. I dont really want the labor part, it hurts, im feeling too tired to want to tackle it lmao.
I kept telling myself I was going to go overdue and Im one day past my due date. This is my first time going over it my first two were early. Im just happy that Im barely starting to feel uncomfortable. I actually think its why Im so happy about her seeming comfy in there. I think the thing Im most annoyed by is the people who call me once a day, just to ask if I have given birth yet, which of crouse are people who normally would never call :roll:
