I am officially overdue!

So Easter came and went and no baby yet! I'm kind of glad I got through this weekend though, now my calendar is empty and I don't have to worry about missing anything if this baby is born now. I'm getting a wee bit anxious, I have the baby clothes washed, co-sleeper is up, car seat is in, now I'm just trying to keep myself busy so I don't drive myself crazy obsessing over every twinge! Obviously I opted not to be induced, I would rather let nature take its course, but my next appointment is tomorrow and if they pushed for an induction so much before I was even due I'm afraid what I will have to go up against when I see the doctor. Of course I'll only wait so long before I give in, I'll probably consider it next week sometime if she doesn't decide to come before then, but boy do I hope she does! I'm trying some "natural methods" ( ) but we'll see how well it works!

If you can spare some labor vibes I would surely appreciate them! I don't want to rush her, but I am ready!


LABOR VIBES!!! LABOR VIBES!!!


Hehehehe...you may be wishing differently soon.

Hang in there Imagen...your little one will be here soon!!!
I was thinking about you on Saturday ( my original due date!) and wondering if anything happened over the weekend.

Sending labor vibes your way!!
Don't let your heart be broken. Let it love.
Where did my post go?

I sent labor vibes earlier!!! Sending more now!!!

Thanks for the vibes guys!

Medussa, it's funny that you say that, because I mentioned the eggplant parm thing to my mom and told her sometime this week we should get everyone together and make it! It couldn't hurt, right? If it doesn't work atleast it will make for a good meal!

Wile..lets just say my husband it benefitting from the "natural methods" of which I speak. I think S-e-x helped to put me into labor with my son, but if it is having any benefitial effect on me this time it isn't obvious. I'll keep at it though, atleast hubby is getting it while he still can!

DarkAngel, how did you use the evening primrose oil?


Ugh, I'm already having such a hard time having sex in my "position". I couldn't imagine doing it when I was overdue!

Good luck to ya! I hope you go soon!!

In the very least I'm happy that my husband is still getting some, and somehow is still enjoying it, but I have to question at this point who he is imagining!

Thanks for the vibes guys, keep them coming!

Imagen, you can swallow the capsules but they are most effective if you insert them vaginally. Even better if you can actually get the oil on your cervix.

Yep, I've decided I'm going to try EPO, raspberry tea and some eggplant parm if I'm late again.
My poor husband (and me) have been sexually deprived for a looooooooong time!!! First, I was scared to have sex b/c I was scared it would hurt the baby or cause a miscarriage or something. Then, once I was finally okay with it, he left for Iraq, and by the time he gets back, I seriously doubt it will be what he has been imagining! Poor guy!!! We better tke advantage of sex when he gets home though (for te few weeks before the baby comes). How long do you have to wait afterwards??? Nevermind-don't answer that- I will start a poll.

Geeky is my hero. She's the true badass. The badass who doesn't even need to be a badass. There aren't enough O's in cool to describe her.

It doesn't seem like there is anything homeopathic that will help with dialation, just ripening of the cervix. Maybe I've just exhausted all my natural methods? Well, we will see what the doc says today, now that I am overdue I may consider induction, although I am still pretty hesitant.


How far along are you? I went 41 weeks with #1 and 40w6d with #2.

Have you tried going to the mall and doing some window shopping? Take your mom with you. It'l keep you busy and might bring on some contractions.
