    Default ideas to cope with being overdue

    Hi Ladies



    Today was my EDD and it doesnt appear that my son will make an entrance tonight.
    I have been having some very scattered cramping pains, about 4 hrs apart so nothing to indicate that he intends on coming tonight.

    How am I going to handle the next couple days, weeks until he arrives. I am already going out of my mind.

    I just want to meet him now.

    I know what you mean! I was 1 week overdue with DD and i ws going mad from about 34 weeks!

    I just went shopping heaps which helped a lot and i got to buy cute baby things in the process! I had to be induced anyway because of pre-eclampsia, which i'm glad otherwise i could of had to wait longer!

    I hope he arrives soon!

    Hun, all I can suggest is to baby dance abit if not to uncomfy, and eat something spicy (hot), these are meant to help. Good luck darl.xx

    The wait must be frustrating for you, but just remember - you will be a mummy really soon, and - this may not seem any consolation right now, but its far better to have an overdue baby than a prem! Good luck with the birth.

    HAVE SEX!!! I was a about a week over with DD and after having a walked forever nothing happened (although it did make her well and truely engaged), we had sex and within about 2 hours I was in labour. It certainly worked for us!!

    Good Luck

    I'll be 41 weeks tomorrow... I want to wait for baby to come naturally and my doctor is talking about inducing him. I plan to stand firm until 42 weeks.

    Here's hoping I won't need to wait much longer :-) I have been shopping today trying to distract myself, but every sales assistant asked "how long to go" so it didn't really work :-)

    Just thought I'd grumble that I'm still waiting. Seems like forever!

    Both my children were 2 weeks overdue. If this one is overdue (as I expect) I plan to rest/sleep/cross-stitch/read a good book because there will be precious little time to do this for months afterward. Actually I don't mind being overdue as such, just the physical discomfort factor. Worrying about the birth is the worst of it... but once again do something like go to the movies (another activity that will soon be impossible with a newborn)... oh it's easy to think of activities because even NOW 10 and 2 years later there are things I wish I had more of before motherhood!
