Pregnant Forever


I feel like I'm going to be pregnant forever! I am 40 weeks and 2 days today. I went in for the fetal non-stress test on my due date and everything looks normal and healthy, so I went the next morning to do the membrane sweep in hopes it would get things going and, almost 24 hours later... NOTHING. I have NO signs of labor at ALL. Not even soft signs. I've been having Braxton Hicks contractions since week 30 and they haven't changed, but that's the only sign. No mucus "plug", no baby dropping (he's been deep in my pelvis since week 28), no bloody show, no nothing. I've been walking every day and doing all the old wives' tales suggestions to get things going but he doesn't want to come out. It's driving me crazy because I just want to hold my baby. I feel like I've never had to wait this long for something in my entire life.
