Re: 40 weeks waiting

Hi Karlie, I'm 40 weeks too. I'm due this Friday. Like you I've been having cramps
and alot of pressure. I've also been getting Braxton Hicks contractions. My
dr. said I'm 2 centimeters dilated, 80% effaced and could go into labor today or 3
weeks from now. I'm still working which helps the time go by but I'm still so anxious it's
making me nuts. My friends and family keep calling to see if anything is happening yet and my b/f calls me 3 to 4 times a day. I keep thinking this time next week I could be a
mommy. It's still hard to believe I'm actually having a baby. I guess it won't seem real until I have my little boy in my arms.

Re: 40 weeks waiting

How far past your due date are you? I am curious b/c I DO NOT want to go past my due date. Have your dr's given you any indication what they will do if you don't go into labor soon?

Good Luck!
