Try to just think that your days really are numbered now. You will not have to endure any further then 40+10 and then it's all over and you will have that beautiful bub. Just do a little count down each day and keep up your efforts to bring on a natural labour. The end is in sight and this is not forever. You can do this mummy. Just a few more days!

I don't want this to annoy you further, but what I have found (just in life in general but it applies to this situation I think), is that the more you rage and get upset and anxious and worked up over something that is basically out of your control, the more energy you waste and it makes you feel far worse. I think the ladies that suggested some relaxation time are on the right track. Try (as hard as it is) to put out of your mind that you are 'overdue' and just focus on filling each day with small things to occupy your time. Every time you feel your thoughts drifting back to the fact that you are still pregnant, try to shift those thoughts to something else. Sometimes you have to let it go, stop stressing and thinking about it, and just accept that it will happen when it happens. There is something very liberating about it if you can do it. Hopefully you will go into labour very soon

but what about her size? I've had a 9lb and a 9lb 4oz baby and they never commented on their size... thankfully they were both a few days early... if I go much more over with this one she's going to be big!! and no-one seems to care! the midwives and doctors say "oh she's a decent size, but nothing to worry about"... but all they are doing is running a tape measure over my belly... that's not that accurate!! and I'm freaking out!!

Your local health food naturopathic pharmacy might sell you some black cohosh drops to take which is supposed to start things.
I hope bub comes soon for you

I can sympathize with how awful the end of pregnancy is especially if you hit 40 weeks. Ds1 I had an overdue appointment at 40+3 and my body was showing no signs of anything. Contractions started that night and he was born 6 days overdue. I know you must be in a lot of pain but can you maybe plan to do something special before bub comes with your other two bubbas? Celebrating your last moments as a family of 3? We had fish and chips down the beach, it was lovely Either way the end is near and although 10 days feels like an eternity you will at least definitely have a bubba by then.
In saying that though fx bub makes her way out and It's not too much longer xo
