Today was my due date

I know that due dates pretty much mean nothing and are more of an estimation. However I am pretty disappointed that she hasn’t arrived yet. I have pretty much no symptoms of labor arriving soon, although for the past few weeks I’ve had cramping that doesn’t turn into anything and aches around my pelvic area, hips, legs, and back. Doctor said I was about 1.5 cm dilated at 38 weeks but not much has changed other than the fact that I lost my mucus plug at 39 weeks. Apparently all of these things mean basically nothing and it’s getting pretty frustrating. I just wish there was something that could tell me when she’s coming soon (like a day or two out) or something that I could do that could speed things along. I’m getting impatient and tired of getting my hopes up for nothing. ☹️

Honestly it’s tough. But having gone to 41 + 6 myself, my best suggestion is to try and keep yourself distracted with anything positive….. oxytocin is the best thing for you right now, so anything that can make you laugh, etc, is a great option!! Hang in there, babe will be here before you know it!! Good luck ☺️

I remember being where you are with my first and it was very frustrating at the time but I really wish I could go back and tell myself not to stress about when it would happen and just enjoy my “me” time until baby was ready to make their appearance. I know that’s a lot easier said than done but it can go from not having any symptoms of them coming to full blown labour in a matter of seconds so try to relax and get as much rest as you can cause mama, you are gonna need it haha 😂 I was 0cm dilated at 41 + 5 My cervix was completely closed to where they couldn’t even do a sweep but randomly my waters broke at 3 am and I was in labour. Hang in there. Baby won’t be long. Go on lots of walks. Do some ball squats. Soon enough little one will be with you ❤️ good luck mama

Tomorrow I will be 41 weeks and my baby shows no signs of wanting to come out right now. It’s soooo frustrating. She was due on my birthday and I wish I could have given birth that day but I’m patient. I’m ready for her whenever she is ready for me
