If your due date comes, and then goes, you might feel disappointed and frustrated. Know that this isn't at all under your control! Try to make the best of it and keep yourself as distracted as possible.
If you're able, one thing that you could do now to pass the time that might also help you in labor is doing squats. Hold onto a sturdy chair or lean your back against a wall and squat down with your knees apart. You could do this as many times as you like, as often as you'd like, several times a day.
Energy and brainpower permitting, maybe you could work on your scrapbooks or baby book or catch up on some reading or spending time with your partner, friends and family.
