Ugh. I was so excited for you, Kim, until I read your update. Now, I'm just frustrated for you. I'm soooo sorry. I know you're feeling let down.

I'm still bummed because if labour kept progressing I would most likely be holding my baby in my arms right now!!
BUT... I am in labour, for the last hour they're 9-11 minutes apart but they're super strong contractions. And the amount of bloody show is startling.... I've been the paranoid mama twice now asking my m/w about it but she says because my cervix was so long and my contractions are so strong she's not surprised.
So while I'm frustrated that baby's not here right now, I'm happy I'm still getting contractions and I know he or she will be here very soon and it's still my body doing all the work and not any meds!

All day today I've been feeling like TONIGHT IS THE NIGHT.

What am I basing this on? Nothing. Absolutely nothing. No bloody show, no increased discharge, no contractions (BH or otherwise), the baby still isn't engaged. And then I tell myself, "that's ok, you can go from no signs to a baby the next day- it happens!" and then I tell myself, "shut up, self, there's no way the baby is coming today, stop getting my hopes up!"

This is so confusing.



So sorry Kim about the disappointment before... I'm glad things are still moving along though, hopefully it's kicked into high gear by now!

I think two days ago I had hardly any BH, now I am having full blown contractions. Please please let this end shortly with a healthy baby!

Last night was definitely not baby night. Slept like a rock (and so did DD- minus the 2 wake ups- yay!)

I'm just going to stop thinking about it. Completely. But I think I'll probably spend my due date crying and eating icecream. Damn due dates! I KNOW it means nothing. I know it does. I'm still going to be pissed though when it goes by with no baby.

With DD, I had a strong feeling of imminent birth that ended up being right. I just KNEW I was going to have a baby that weekend. This time, I've had that feeling six or seven times. So now I don't trust myself at all. I'm so demoralized that I really think I may never give birth!! Which is silly but geez. It's so weird. I hated all the false labor, but now I'm in this weird limbo where I have had some promising signs (YET MORE mucus plug loss and a lot more discharge this morning) with no contractions. I can really see how women might think their bodies are broken... it feels like my body can't coordinate all of this! And I really, really, really want to be done with pregnancy, I'm getting so uncomfortably huge and my hips feel permanently split. Come ON baby! LET'S DO IT ALREADY!

at last, something different to report! dp has increased discharge and bloody show this morning! i know that doesn't necessarily mean labour is imminent but we'll take it. she also felt what she described as a small gush. i had the SAME thing with our son and it turned out my water was leaking. we'll monitor and see what else might happen.
