HEATHER - March 5

OMG im going crazy, I have 3 days till my dd, and I feel he just isnt coming, my dd was 16 days late, so that doesnt give me any hope. im walking, doing the eliptical, taking primrose oil, having lots of s_x, constantly cleaning the house and makeing sure the fridge is stocked and supplies are around the house...but the more im getting dedicated to all this, the more tired im getting at the thought that he isnt coming anytime soon still. what are you doing in your last few days???

I am in the exact same boat!!! I'm 1 week late from my delivery date and going insane! I started my maternity leave 1 day after my delivery date which was this past Wednesday. I feel as though nothing is happening and that nothing is going to happen any time soon and now I wish I would have kept working! Because I'm bored out of my mind at home! I've cleaned, I spent all night last night rearranging the baby's room, we're all stocked up on everything we need too and all the laundry is done, hospital bags are packed, etc. I'm ready I just wish he would hurry up! I'm going insane! We've been driving down bumpy roads, which are PRETTY bumpy with all the ice that just finally melted that we had, walking around, having plenty of s_x. I read that masturbation can sometimes prove to be better than s_x at bringing on contractions because you orgasm harder and longer than with s_x, so my husband and I have been trying mutual masturbation and nothing seems to be helping!

I am going a little nutty too...I have been cleaning, reading up on what to expect the first year of life, making sure we'll have enough water, cat food, frozen dinners, etc. Lately i have been doing things that i won't be able to do once baby is here, such as long naps, long baths, going out to stores (window shopping mostly)..I'm due Thursday, the 8th .. i went to the doc last night and i'm only 1 cm dilated and 50%...She set an induction date for the 14th...I better go into labor before that!! There is only so much i can clean in an 1 bedroom apt!

Hey girls. I know how you're feeling. I'm 3 days away from my due date. The doctor says that I'm 5 centimeters dilated and 90% effaced. The doctor was trying to "strip my membranes" at my appointment yesterday and says that by the feel of things, she doesn't think I'll be late. I just feel like I'm going to be pregnant forever and the furniture that I'm staring at will continue to be empty. I need to do something to keep my mind off of it.
