I was due on the 6th with our third child and they still havent arrived. I had contractions for 12 hours on sunday then they stopped. Talk about feeling depressed. I wonder if there is such a thing as pre-partum depression because your baby just wont come. I know you cant be pregnant forever, but it sure feels that way.My second was 11 days overdue so I have been down this road before. My Mid-wife says we should keep having sex....... is she freaking nuts??? Just thinking about sex makes me uncomfortable. Just anxious and ready for this baby to get here. Anybody else?????

Okay so sex really does work. I know its the last thing on your mind it was the last thing on mine but I wanted my baby out so bad. Another thing was walking. I walked until I couldnt walk anymore. I wanted until I was in pain. And the next morning I was having contractions and I had my baby the next day. So hope this helps. Good luck ladies!!!

I'm 3cm dilated but not in labour and my baby was due 10 days ago! I feel like I've been pregnant forever and I just really want to hold my little girl. My partner really wants her here now too. We've tried everything. Long walks, sex, spicy food, castor oil. You name it, we've tried it, and still nothing! So if she doesn't arrive today or tomorrow, I have to be induced on Monday morning at hospital... and I've been hoping for a water birth, so that's that dream out the window! But I'm still optimistic at the mo. If she does come today or tomorrow, I can still have a water birth! =)
Gotta say, I've never been so uncomfortable in my whole life so I know how you all feel!
Good luck and let's get these babies out!!! =D xxx

I hear ya on that!! My son was 10 days over due when I was induced for the 2nd time! With this one, my OB thought I would go 2 weeks ago but here I am still pregnant. I went in for another apt yesterday and he said "thought you would have had that baby by now". My actual due date is not until tomorrow so I guess I can't complain too much on that. But I am so uncomfortable I just want her out already!!! Contractions come and go and she keeps dropping further and further...

I'm not overdue just yet but with the MW's and everybody else saying 'I'm suprised she hasn't arrived yet' it gets a little depressing lol. I'm 39 weeks on weds. I know exactly how you feel though with the MW's saying have plenty of sex and she will soon arrive lol that's the last thing on my mind too. Here's hoping your little ones come soon for you both.

Try to do lots of walking instead, and move your hips a lot, helps bring the baby down more :)
