Hey all. I am 41 weeks today and doing all I can to keep a grip on my sanity. I figured there are probably a few other 41+ weekers out there sharing in this struggle so I wanted to start a thread for us to bitch and whine and support each other (rather than me continuing to hijack the labor watch thread with my daily "still no baby" posts).
Here's where I'm at: As of my appointment yesterday I am not dilated at all despite 2 weeks of cramping (HOW?!?!?!?). All indicators show baby is healthy although the amniotic fluid level is on the very low end of the normal range. The doc said he's not concerned about that yet, unless baby's movement decreases or any other problems crop up. So now my vigilance about tracking baby's movements is bordering on obsession because I'm so nervous about the low fluid! I have another BPP scheduled for Thurs and will likely be facing induction the end of this week if nothing happens before then. I've started the process of trying to accept that my dream of an intervention free birth might not be possible.
