still pregnant

My due date was Sunday that has come and gone and I'm still pregnant.
I had a NST yesterday and passed that but my midwife wasnt in the office so I didnt get checked. I was really hoping to know how far dilated I was as well as get a membrane sweep, lucky for me I go back tomorrow for another NST.
I feel like I'm going to be pregnant forever, at this point I've gone longer than when I was pregnant with my son.
I know I should be happy that I was finally able to carry another pregnancy to term but I cant help but be a nervous wreck until I get to hold my daughter in my arms. I"m so afraid I'm going to end up with a stillborn after miscarrying two.
Today I will be trying a bunch of different things to kick start labor, I had Cajun Alfredo for lunch, will be making eggplant Parmesan for dinner, doing some walking, and then if I really feel up to it some sex. And I've been using evening primrose oil since I was 36 weeks.
So although I'm beyond anxious to meet my daughter I want to make sure my body is ready too because being strep b positive i'm on a definite time line once things start and I absolutely dont want to end up with a c-section.

I am sorry you are stressing hon. I am there with you- now officially past my due date and am so over waiting. I also have had previous miscarriages, and am so afraid of a cord accident or something else horrible happening. I go into absolute panic mode whenever little girl is quiet for a bit. I am just trying to stay calm and take things one day at a time.

Keeping my fingers crossed that we will both be somehow going into labor today! In the meantime I am sending hugs your way!

The good news is that you've made it this far

She just needs a lil more time to bake in there

Keep us posted on your test tomorrow
And we're rooting for a safe, comfortable, easy labor for you!
