Theoretica- I had the same yesterday. 7 min apart contrac. for about 2 hours. Got me pretty excited and then.... nothing! It's so discouraging!!!!
Craft_media- I've heard about the cytotech, and that it was rough! I think Cervadil is a little more gentle, that's the tampon thing. Also, a super low dose of pit. may be enough to get the party started, not sure. I'm scheduled with a midwife for the induction so we'll talk about it friday morning if I don't have this baby before then!
I spent the day baking banana muffins and bread yesterday and I think that's what stimulated all the contrax. YUMMMM!!!!! I took a walk again and laid down. That's when they really started. CANNOT dtd at this point, I would really rather die. Especially since we laughed through the whole thing last time!
It was pretty funny...
41w 3d and still 85% effaced and 0 station. At the very least I'm hoping that since she's so low that when it's time to push she flies out of there! Who knows... If I've learned anything through this process of being at the end of pregnancy it's this, There is no method to the madness. I've been doing EVERYTHING you're told to do to stimulate labor and it's just not happening. Walking, pumping, nip stim, sex, bouncing on exercise ball, taking EPO, drinking RRL tea, and I've been doing these things daily for 12 days. I think all those things help move things along if you're already ready to go. But if you're not, they don't do jack! I'm not happy to be getting induced at all, but at the same time I'm so sick of TRYING to make it happen and sitting around watching the clock. Now at least I know I have 2 more days until my sweet baby is here!
I can't wait to meet her!!!!
