42 Weeks... I NEVER dreamed!

Well, here I am, 42 weeks and still pregnant!! I NEVER thought that I would be starting the Summer of Baby Love Blog Party still unable to test any of the products! This is absolute craziness! My midwife assures me that all is normal and baby is fine, I just have to wait... and wait... and wait!

I have to admit, at this point it all feels a little unreal, like I am never going to be holding a baby in my arms... like it is always just going to be the three of us. My midwife says that if that is the case I should start writing my National Enquirer article and plan my nationwide tour about being pregnant forever! She says she is sure that if I call and discuss how much they would pay for such an article I am bound to go into labor right away! Haha! It sounds more tempting all the time!

I dearly wish I had something more to share with you all- like pictures of my new babe- but for now all I can say is I'm still here and I'm still pregnant! Pray and hope for me! And have fun with the party the party this week- it is starting today regardless!!!

I'll be thinking of you and sending you "go-into-labor-already!" thoughts. :) When I was at 40 weeks, I started trying all the benign little home-remedies for inducing labor...(taking a long walk, going for a bumpy car ride, having sex) but none of them worked. Good luck and have fun! :)

I am so sorry that you are still pregnant. Wow! I hope and pray that you are holding your precious little baby soon. I really don't know how you are keeping it together. I am ready to have my baby now as well, but I still have seven more weeks. I can't imagine what you are going through. Hang in there the best you can. I don't have any great words of comfort.

I am so sorry your baby hasn't came yet. I ended up going 10 days over. I can't imagine how upset I would have been if I had made it to 42 weeks.

Wow, I am just amazed...praying for you, I can't even imagine being 42 weeks, the longest I ever went was 39!

Hoping soon...

Wow, I'm sorry that you don't have a baby in your arms yet. It will be soon, I'm sure.

Good luck and hang in there.

Hey, hang in there! :) Your little one will be here before you know it. I know that sounds cliche but it's true. :)

I'm curious though... how long will your midwife let you go over before she thinks about intervention?

Have you tried anything? Black/Blue Cohosh? Castor Oil? Again, just curious. :)

Aww...Little One will be here soon. Just remember to cherish this intimate time that only YOU get to share with your baby. I always sink into a bit of a depression after having babies, because I miss that intimacy so much...

Is it possible they got your due date wrong??
