I'm 39+1 and almost to the point of really really wanting baby out. Our last was born at 41+3, so I still have a while before I hit that mark. Last night after a long walk and sex I got TONS of prodromal labor. I knew in my gut it wasn't the real thing, but I totally couldn't sleep. I was WAY grouchy, and tried doing my hypnobabies and couldn't because my 2YO woke up screaming in the middle of it and was almost inconsolable (night terrors?). So that was a pain. Then hubby snored like crazy, then I couldn't get comfortable, then any position I was in, I felt like the baby insisted on using my bladder as a punching bag, and the only way I was comfortable was a laying on my stomach almost/side, but that was the most annoying for the contractions. So, when 2AM hit, I had half a beer and shortly there after went to sleep. We've already talked with our MWs about if I go into labor before bed at night, I"m having a glass of wine and a bath to calm things down to sleep, and then pick things up in the morning.
Well, this morning, nothing...
. So, we have a plan on Friday night to get a sitter, have all night together, and the next morning, and get things going again the same way....and not stop it this time, but encourage it.
Last birth, we went into labor at 5pm, and labored all night, all the next day, and he was born (by CS due to exhaustion and ignorance) the next morning. So, we're trying to avoid that.
SIGH, so glad others feel as I do!
