I sympathesize! I remember with Connor, it was 41+ weeks, and I went into work one day (it was a high school over the Christmas break) and my co-workers were like, "You're still pregnant?" Duh, people!

Your baby will be born very soon!

I have so been there. 42+ weeks with my last baby. One thing that really helped me was having support from my midwife to honor my body - whatever that meant to me. I hope you have non judgey mcjudgerson people in your life to support however you wish to birth.

Those last few days are the slowest. Best wishes to you and try your best to relax and be nice to your body and soul.

I started losing the plug last Thursday and I've had two nights of waking up with one whopper of a contraction that I could feel in my cervix (Sunday morning and this morning). But that's it. Every morning I wake up, have a good cry and go for my walk.

I'm doing everything I can. But in the end, my best might not be good enough and that's what's getting me down.

Thanks for the support and good thoughts.

Your best is good enough... your baby loves it in there so much, s/he wants to stay there!

I have a question for you, medussa, on a slightly different topic.... do you still nurse your third child or is she completely weaned? I'm curious as to what people have done in that situation as my son still nurses voraciously and we're starting to think of #2.

Thanks, Amneris.

Lilly completely weaned herself about a month ago. She will sometimes, when overtired or sobbing, try to latch on, but she won't suck. She just wants to put her mouth there for a split second. It doesn't happen often, but it makes me realize how much comfort it brought her.

ITA with Amneris, H. Your best is good enough and your body will do what it needs to when the time is right. I know it must be so hard in the meantime though.

Amneris, I'm not near the end of my pregnancy yet but Sol still nurses A LOT (more during the day now that we've nightweaned) and I intend to tandem nurse. I'm actually even hoping to nurse him during labor so the nipple stimulation can keep things moving along.

ETA: I just finished reading the book Adventures in Tandem Nursing and highly recommend it. It has lots of good info about breastfeeding during pregnancy and tandem nursing. Plus, it's not pushy nor is it intended to make people feel bad if they decide to wean during pregnancy or after the birth of their newborn.
