Hi everyone. DD's due date was 26th. There is no sign of little Violet yet. I know it's not that far over, but I can't sleep and have no nails left! (that's a good thing, because no danger of scratching her once she is here!!)

With a name like Violet syberia she is just being shy and retiring! Hope she arrives soon. sunshine

Ariadne Sat 31-Mar-12 12:05:27

Me too!

Syberia, those extra days do drag so very much. I was in your position six months ago almost to the day, we all thought she would never arrive (12days late in the end - but in truth all those calculations are only simple maths and biology is so much more complex). She will arrive in her own sweet time and you will have the most wonderful time getting to know her. Lots of love to you and yours XX.

syberia they always say girls are lazy and want to stay put, she will be here soon enough.

absentgrana Sat 31-Mar-12 23:15:44

glass I thought it was always "lazy boy".

We always say lazy girls absent smile

All my GC, boys and girls arrived late. But both of my sons arrived on the very day they were expected. Wasn't I lucky?

my little grandaughter, four months, is rose. she was 'late' but when she arrived it was clear she was only just 'done'.

Ariadne Mon 02-Apr-12 11:08:49

Any news yet, syberis???

syberia Tue 03-Apr-12 10:09:53

Thanks all for your posts, congrats absent on your new arrival.

We are STILL waiting!!!! Not even a twinge yet! Baby is still moving well so no need for worrying I am told. Every day I am thinking, "It MUST be today, surely", but then it isn't!

Ah well, nothing to be done smile

Perhaps she's decided to go round for another 9 months syberia. Does she realise there are hundreds of Gransnetters holding their breath here? smile

Is it a first baby syberia? They are more often late than subsequent ones I think.

Both my grandchildren were 2 weeks over the due date and were almost on the point of being induced before they eventually arrived. The newest, a little boy is only 16 weeks old now and I can well remember how anxious the wait was. Each hour seemed like a day and we were so on edge all the time. But when they did arrive the joy more than made up for the anxiety. I wish you, your daughter and granddaughter every happiness as you start this new adventure together. Look forward to hearing some good news!

Ariadne Wed 04-Apr-12 19:01:18

Fingers crossed!

Hope you get your little granddaughter soon syberia smile

DD has been to the midwife today. It seems she is expecting a baby that will weigh,"at least 9 pounds" (My daughter is normally a size 8!!). All is still progressing nicely, and no-one seems concerned at the fact she is 10 days overdue (that's good!).
If nothing happens by Monday then DD will have to attend hospital on a daily basis to be monitored.
I sincerely hope baby arrives before Monday, I am a wreck! grin

libradi doesn't sound little to me!

Hang in there syberia - You may get more than a chocolate Easter egg this Sunday grin.
Thinking of you.

greenmossgiel Wed 04-Apr-12 21:10:38

syberia - thinking of you - you'll be so excited! This wee one sounds as if she's going to be quite a bundle! smile

glassortwo Wed 04-Apr-12 22:30:07
