As the title says. Ugh. I'm 40+3 with my third baby. I had a strong feeling from day 1 this baby would be late but I had no idea how hard it would be! The most difficult thing is that I have family in town to help for only the next 12 days. My mom leaves Saturday and I'll be 41+1 and am absolutely certain I'll still be pregnant then. I just don't know how I'm going to cope, and I wish this baby were here already so I could at least have help the first couple weeks of his/her life. I've tried all the stupid things that I already know don't work- sex, spicy food, stairs, walking, acupuncture (3 times now), even a membrane sweep and castor oil. Now I'm just depressed. I won't induce unless baby is in distress. I know babies come when they're ready but unfortunately modern life doesn't really allow us to be very flexible. We don't live in villages with our big extended families anymore. And that kind of sucks in situations like these! I'm really struggling and am hoping this thread can help us all feel better. So if your due date has come and gone... Come whine with me!
