What is going on!

I'm overdue now only by 2 days but thats enough for me! I understand that my baby will come when she's ready and there is probably nothing that I can do to speed it up. It just seems like I'm so close and then nothing!!!

I have had flu like symptoms, cramping and LOADS of braxton hicks over the last couple of days - they aren't regular but I would say I am having about 6 maybe more in an hour for a couple of hours. This is when I try walking as I was told this helps speed things up - and nothing I have tried having bath - nothing I've tried every position I can think off to try and help her out... any ideas?

Re: What is going on!

tear drop, I've actually heard that taking a bath in very early labor can stall it out. Not sure if this is true or not, just thought I'd mention it. I think other than that you're doing everything right. Keep active, keep walking ... and hang in there!!
