UPDATE!   We decided to skip the doctor appointment! Contractions finally kicked in around 10pm Thursday night. They continued for the next 6 hours - really strong (yes, I thought I was going to die of pain! lol). I would doze off between each contraction and then wake up to the pain again.

Hello ladies! I have been reading threads on here for a while and love hearing everybody's stories and concerns, but I thought maybe I should join and start asking my own questions! I am due in 13 days and am starting to worry! Here's my situation: 18 months ago I gave birth to my beautiful daughter and she was PERFECT, but the birthing experience was far from it! I was induced at 41 weeks, 3 days. I hated being induced, and it just went downhill from there. I  was...
So confused! I'm new here and I'm trying to start a new thread on one of the forums and each time I try to submit it, it says "Sorry the thread you are trying to link does not exist!" I don't know what that means! Help!
