Thanks, mamas! :love  Still working here...  Things have slowed down though ctxs are still very intense as they come.  Everyone's here and resting now.  My guess birth date is now today and my guess birth time is in about 4 hours, so we'll see what happens!

 

And thanks for NOT sharing on FB.  :wink

That's how I feel right now.  :(  Six hours ago ctxs made a huge jump and were coming fast and furious.  A few minutes ago, with ctxs slowed way down and not as unbelievably strong, I let my MW check me.  So much for checking your own dilation... Now, with bloody show and the whole bit, I'm only 3cm and 60% effaced.  Baby's in a good position but this is NOT what I expected.  Seriously, I've been having ctxs for weeks and these ones ARE labor ctxs.  They're still coming, but still not like they were earlier.  I'm somehow stuck in this vicious cycle of strengthening and weakening ctxs.  And I want off.  :(

 

So it's 3am and everyone's gone home (except my mom, who's asleep with 3 boys surrounding her).  I've taken some valerian to help me get to sleep, though I'll still be waking up for these ctxs every little bit.  Who knows when this will actually culminate with a baby.  I'm seriously bummed. :(

:hug Heather. I am crashing here but I totally know how you feel. The best things to do are a) eat so you dont run out of energy b) rest when you can.. and of course avoid the frustration if you can. Slow moving labors are really emotionally exhausting but they do end!!! I promise they do. ;)
