9 Days Overdue And Getting Fed Up

Unknown - May 13

Hi all. I'm now 9 days overdue and still no sign of my baby girl. She's obviously too comfortable but I'm not! I want to kick start labor and have tried walking, s_x and other old wives tales. (I will NOT use castor oil!!!) Any of you ladies in the same boat? If by Sunday I haven't had her, then I'll be induced but I would like to her naturally,,,she's my first and I hear induction is brutal the first time around. Any suggestions? Any one in the same predicament?

I know what you mean...I was 9 days late with both my kids. But, if you have to be induced, it's not THAT bad. Contractions are contractions. The only difference is that they may come ona little faster than natural contractions. But your nurse or Dr. should be able to adjust your pitocin to keep your contractions coming at normal strengths. But, fact of the matter is......labor hurts. No ifs, ands, or buts about it. My advice.....get an epidural early...sit back and enjoy:)

Thanks, Rebecca. I guess I'm just a wimp....just lost my mucus plug though so there is still hope!!!

I think your baby just knows what it has to face in the real world... it's being rather smart I think... :)

Amara, what's that supposed to mean?

I think Amara means that the world is a cruel place and your baby is being smart by staying put in a lovely cosy place.
