Wow, congratulations! That is so great to hear that you made it to/beyond your due date. I tell people these days, when they ask me about the due date, that I'm just trying to make it as long as I can! Good luck and keep us updated!

I was hoping to go into labor on my own as well, but I will be induced starting Sunday evening. My due date was Friday and still no baby. I'm still dilated 2-3 cm and over 50% effaced, this little guy's just being stubborn. They don't want him getting much bigger, so I go to the hospital Sunday at 6 p.m. and they'll start me on cervidil. Then if nothing has happened by 6 a.m. on Monday, my doctor said we'll either start pitocin or he'll break my water, depending on where things are. He thinks the cervidil will kick things in though and I'll be able to go on my own after that. I've been walking and cleaning and doing all those things you're supposed to do to kick labor into gear today, hoping I go on my own before Sunday evening...but no such luck. I am having contractions, just not regularly.

Any and all prayers and well wishes are appreciated and I'll update as soon as I can once he's finally here. I've had his crib put together and the bedding in it for six weeks now, expecting an early baby....I put everything in the washer again today because it was dusty!!! I can't do anything but laugh at this point! Wish me luck!

If there was one thing I would have wished for it would have been to go into labor by myself. However, I bet it is just maddening!!! Good luck and I can't wait to hear the baby news!!
