Now that I'm "overdue" I can NOT get off of these boards. Maybe it's because my maternity leave started at 39.5 weeks, DH is working, and I'm BORED OUT OF MY MIND. I find myself constantly checking the board and finding places to give me 2 cents and try to connect with other November moms.
I've only been off of work for a week and I'm already going nuts. Maybe it's because I've always worked and I'm used to keeping busy? There's only so many times I can walk my dog and so many things I can clean. It's making waiting for LO so much harder since I'm not as distracted anymore!
DH and I went out to dinner last night to try to distract ourselves. We literally stared into space the entire time mumbling "I wonder when she is going to come" or "I'm getting so anxious waiting for her" every few minutes. (I even caught him googling 'castor oil' on his iphone while we were waiting for the check- something I told him I wouldn't do! lol)
The worst part is that we got our hopes up after hearing at each internal how dilated and effaced I am and yadda yadda yadda. Last time they checked I was 3cm and 80% with baby at 0 station. The midwife we saw (my regular MW was out sick) said "She could come any day now!". I wanted to punch her. Don't get our hopes up again. They have been up for weeks.
Also, I would like to point out that I knew 5 other ladies who were due in November - 4 of which were due after me. All have had their babies. *sigh*
Maybe I'll spend some time finally trying to make a cute siggy on here. Gotta pass the time somehow!
Anyone else overdue and playing the waiting game?
