40 weeks pregnant – My due date has arrived, but still no baby!

40 weeks pregnant - my due date has arrived but still no baby - motherhooddiaries

No baby.

Not even a sign that the baby is on his way! I’ve started eating tons of pineapple which has given me the runs and I’m walking absolutely everywhere to help the process along. I’m just ready to have this baby now. I can’t wait to meet our baby and I’m starting to feel very, very uncomfortable.

The baby puts a lot of pressure on my bladder when I’m in an upright position. But if that enables him to drop down into my pelvis then so be it. I hope he doesn’t wait too long to come out

A fun fact – We have reached our due date! Yay!
