    And by the way, I’m sure you know that first babies are often late. Mine was 10 days late. But when she was ready, she was ready, and the labor was quick and easy. I hope it’s the same with you!

    Both my girls were two weeks overdue — and not to scare you, but they popped out as 10-pounders. We joked that they spent those last two weeks, laid up in style, just getting fat and sassy. :) Looking forward to “meeting” the little miss.

    Ten Months Pregnant! Been there, done that! Bit the head off everyone who nagged me about it–like I was staying PG on purpose. Oh yeah, I tried walking, salads, and sex and while they all had their merits, my little one came when she damn-well felt like it. And what a Beau-Ti-Ful little (big) thing she was, and still is! Enjoy what little time you have left with your big round tummy–seriously!

    You look great! My daughter was born at almost 42 weeks, and I am due tomorrow with baby number 2. I do not anticipate having him tonight or tomorrow, so I’ll be joining you in the post-date ranks. I feel patient, too. I just wish the rest of my family did and would stop calling me multiple times a day. :) But the any-minute-ness now of the whole thing is kind of weird. It is soooooo worth it when those babies come! It won’t be long now. Best wishes for a wonderful birth experience.

    HUGELY pregnant, I was checking out @ the grocery store & the bag boy asked when I was due. “Friday”, I answered. He made an encouraging comment about Friday being right around to which I responded “No, LAST FRIDAY, I think I’m in labor right now!”. You should have seen his face… priceless! He hustled me outta there as fast as lightning and 12 hours later I was laying in bed nursing a baby…. (and i gotta say it too, that photo is beyond adorable!)

    I am a huge fan of your blog and wish you and your cute hubby a speedy, healthy delivery. I was a week past due with my first which was welcomed as we were renovating our new (very old) house – I went into labour whilst painting the stairs (gas mask and all) not really recommended. Take good care of yourself now and rest as much as you can – soon you will have a beautiful babe that will demand every inch of you!

    Enyoy this precious time.
    All my best,

    You look great! I actually felt great (if absolutely enormous) until the end. They were going to induce me at 41 weeks, but then my substitute doctor realized the baby was potentially 12 pounds and advised me to get a c-section. (She ended up being 10 lbs.) Regardless, she had not even dropped at 41 weeks. How long will your doctor let you wait?

    I just gave birth a few weeks ago. I was 42 weeks and 2 days. Technically, the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists does not consider you over due until 42 weeks. I only mention it in case you feel any pressure to induce. Good luck. Hang in there. Your little girl will come when she is ready.
