I know the feeling. I was hanging out for my first born to come. I was miserable. And then I went 10 days over!! I thought I was going to die. And then I got sick of people asking me 'Any news yet?'. :) And I tried lots of wives tales to try bring him on... which to be honest didn't work for me and just made me more frustrated. In the end, I found the only thing that helped was dividing every day up into sections and keeping busy. For example- I had more energy in the morning, so I would organise to meet up with a friend or go window shopping on my own from 10am-1pm. Then I would get home and watch a movie from 1:30-3. And then I did some housework and prepared dinner. And then before you know it... its bed time! It sounds dumb but it really help me. Every day seems so long until I broke it down. :)

this is certainly the worst part of pregnancy...the pain, the sleeplessness, all of it just starts to be too much...and time literally creeps by. If you can get exercise (walking, stretching on an exercise ball, etc) this can help, sex, a small glass of red wine, etc. Old wives tales exist because they are "true"...try them all. The best advice is I have tho, is to make lots of plans...lunch dates, shopping trips, perhaps even a dinner and night out with the daddy...If bub can ruin your plans...he or she will...I promise! Oh...and relax!

it is crap waiting but nothing will literally pass time faster, just keep busy and dont think about trying to bring on labor you might just prolong it further, its like when your trying to get pregnant, most the time it happens when you dont expect it so my advice is dont expect it. wouldnt it be great to sleep till it was time :)
