Waiting for the little Pumpkin

So it's the 20th of March....Hmmm...The excitement that we were feeling as we neared our due date is now being replaced with anxiety and restlessness. I just don't want to be induced with drugs to get labor going and I especially would like to avoid a c-section. Everyday that she is late, is a day closer to those options. I mean even with the tachycardia which started at my 5th month, even with all the trouble breathing, the chest pains and heart palpitations I haven't considered taking medications or having an early c-section because I want to have this baby as naturally as possible (note: if it were absolutely medically necessary for my health and baby's than ofcourse it would be an option).
Everyone keeps asking when the baby is coming. Well you know what...I would like to know that as well! Yesterday my mom and hubby took me out walking again. People kept stopping on the streets to ask when I was due or to tell me that I had dropped, there was even a lady who just looked at me and said 'push that baby out girl, push JUST PUSH!'. I mean you really think I can just do that? She ain't stuck! Lol Anyways then we stopped at a indian restaurant to have some food and the nice lady there gave me free food because she said she could feel my discomfort and restlessness. Got Sunvi to buy me a papaya and a pineapple and after we got home, I had some papaya and half a whole pineapple (which contains an enzyme called bromelain that is supposed to work like a prostaglandin, ripening and softening the cervix). Still no progress. Walked some more in my room, while Sunvi made fun of me for walking like a penguin (my mother agreed with him and laughed at me too). Still no progress. This morning, I woke up at 6:30 after 3 hours of sleep and lay in bed waiting for baby to wake up. As soon as she started moving around, I tried to telepathically communicate with her and tell her that it's OK to come out now and that even though she is going to really hurt me, she will be completely forgiven :)
