Need to Rant about this Pregnancy

So yesterday was my due date according to my midwives and well, here I am, still pregnant. My body hurts, I don't get much sleep at all and I just want my body back! So on Thursday night I started getting Braxton Hicks contractions, Friday they continued and then yesterday they picked up more regularily. I went for a nice long walk and by the end of the day I was having stronger (mentrual type pain) contractions. Hopeful thinking, maybe I was going to go into labour that night? Nope. They stopped. So frustrating!! I just don't want to be pregnant anymore...... I don't see my midwife till Wednesday and at earliest, I wouldn't have an induction until Halloween, 9 days over due!! Anyone else done with being pregnant!?!

PS. My DD was 8 days over due when I had her and boy was I exhausted! (They started the induction by giving me the gel to soften the cervix, and boom I went into labour myself) This time, I've had some kidney complications...so I am really done and exhausted!!

I bet those contractions are doing something! Just takes forever sometimes. Are you doing any lovemaking, nipple stimulation, raspberry leaf tea? I don't know if any of those will move things along but you can certainly try. I feel you, my due date is Friday and I am getting so uncomfortable, especially trying to sleep at night and being at work all day. The last few weeks are the hardest I have found out!

I've tried everything this weekend to no avail. I think your best bet is get your membranes swept! I was supposed to be induced tomorrow but it got moved to Wednesday, so I'm going to beg my dr to do s sweep for me to try to get things going.

sounds like my first pregnancy, minus the 'false labor' stuff (i never had any of that lol) they gave me the cervical ripeners and that was enough to put me into labor. hopefully you'll go on your own soon!!

I've ate tons of pineapple, tried the love making, nipple stimulation... nothing! My next appt with my midwives is Wednesday, and we are to discuss the stretch & sweep....hopefully if I am still pregnant, maybe that will do it? Ugh, why can't I be one of those ladies who are standing in walmart and their water breaks!? lol!! Induction date wouldn't be until the 31st, and thats wayyy too far away!!!!!

Be careful what you wish for! It still could happen! I was almost one of those women, but lucky for me it happened before we left the house for Wal-mart! And mine just kept gushing out. SOOOO not fun!
