i understand you are suffering and sick of being pregnant - at your stage its pretty tough even for someone who hasnt had your problems - but your baby is still preterm. I know it seems like doctors can do anything these days and 35 weeks is no big deal, but your baby would still be disadvantaged at this stage and needs more time to cook! 37 weeks is considered term, but very few babies choose to make an appearance at this stage. If they are term they are a lot more likely to breath better, maintain their own temperature, feed and thrive.
Sorry, i know this isnt music to your ears and im sorry you've had such an awful time - but you could well be looking at another 5 weeks or so (and hopefully you are early!) might just be time to give into it, stop work if you still are and rest up (hoping this is your first baby, lol!) be kind to yourself but you dont need the pressure of a countdown yet.
I was on the countdown from hitting the 37/38 week mark and 3 days over my due date felt like torture. had i gone to 14 days over i would have been a mad woman! lol! the reality is though that nature usually knows whats best. x
