Good luck, October. I am sending lots of labor vibes your way. I hope this option gives you the most intervention-free birth that you can have. I will be looking forward to updates as soon as you can, and hopefully there is a baby/birth story very soon!

Thread Starter 


so i had yet another emotional roller coaster ride this morning. my BP is so good that last night they were considering letting me go home today. even though my liver panel was still high i didn't have the BP issue or low platelets so they figured i'd be good to try that. i was so excited and hopeful, really. but they drew more labs and results aren't good. now i have low platelets too so i'm back at two out of three things they look for with HELLPS. they turned the pit off last night at around 2:00am since i might be leaving and while i was having some contractions on it about an hour after i was off i didn't feel much. i made a little progress when she checked me though at 2am i was 95% effaced and 2cm. i didn't get a check today. the last one was uncomfortable and bloody. anyway after my cry about the platelets i'm trying to have a positive attitude. i mean it really sucks but HELLPS is very serious for me and baby and so we are doing what we think is best. the pit is back on only for a couple of hours they started at 2 and are increasing by 2 every half hour. i'm having contractions every 2-3 minutes for the most part and they last for about 60 seconds but aren't painful at this point. DH went to get us some lunch and we are going to watch a movie. i have a doula to call when things get intense. hopefully we'll have a baby today. DH wants a Rosh Hashanah baby.

thanks for the support everyone!

Thinking of you and babe. You can have the birth you want even in a hospital with just some minor tweaks. Good luck mama. Can't wait to hear about the babe.

Good luck Octobermoon! A Rosh Hashana babe would be really special! (My DH is hoping NOT to have a Yom Kippur baby, since that is so close to my EDD.)

Sounds like you are making progress on the pit and even without pain at this point. . .that sounds very positive to me! Keep your spirits up! I am so jealous that you will be meeting your LO so soon. . .but really happy for you!
