Yesterday I was totally in early labor for like 10 hours if not longer. I was having regular, hard ctx every 10-15 min that felt like a huge painful rubber band was constricting me all the way around - back, front, top, bottom. I have had a back ache for 3 days...not hungry and forced myself to eat a little bit - more loose poo (oh fun!) felt sick etc. The whole kit and kaboodle. I was literally sitting/walking and rocking back and forth and just breathing through them...they hurt and I can handle a lot!
So at 11.30 I decided to go lie down and try to read a bit and rest. Well, I was able to sleep but am totally annoyed because I wanted to have the darn baby with all of that work and effort I put in!
So....today we're going to run errands, I am going to walk a ton etc.
Any other ideas to make sure that when (because I know it will happen even more so today because I stood up and was like hello ctx!) they come so consistently what else I can do to make them progress even more so they don't pathetically peter out after a LONG day of them.......
PS no more mucus plug but no bloody show either.....
PPS Bitchyness is a way of life at this point - I actually shouted several times at my 2 yo yesterday which I never do and felt really bad about it. Also he tried touching me during a painful ctx and I nearly flung him onto the couch...just not good.....this baby needs to come out!!!!!!!!!
