I'm currently 40+2 with my first baby. I'm trying to wait patiently but also wondering when this little one is going to make his/her appearance into the world!

Anyone want to join me in the waiting game?

Yep!

40 and 4.

I know we're meant to be carrying on as usual but my back is killing me and I get so tired.  It's been a sudden change for me.  Was okay up until 39 weeks and then bam!

Hang in there ladies.

Has anyone got any signs of labour so far?

40+5. Today is *my* due date though.
No signs if labour here. Had a super sore back last night and the baby was doing some hardcore movements. Thought maybe last night might have been it!
Have to see what today brings! (No hug NYE celebrations that's for sure!)
Husband goes back to work Wednesday so would like to have a baby before that happens!

Updating on us.

I went into labour on Sunday Dec 30. Admitted on NYE at 40w5d.  Waters broken 5 pm and gave birth to baby L at 2245.

We are all completely in love with each other. He's 51cm long and 3.46kg.

Still in hospital. Going home Friday.

Hope there's movement for you all, ladies.

You forget the pain and how crappy you felt the moment you hold your LO.  Promise.
