Getting really frustrated and disheartened here. My water broke at 3AM this morning and we have spent the entire day walking, doing acupressure, massage, nipple stim, etc. and I have HAD IT. I may have a few contrax here and there but they just peter out. I am leaking amniotic fluid a lot so it is hard to do much or go anywhere. I have lost plug and my body is cleansing, but no bloody show or regular contrax. Poor DS is stuck at a friend's for an unknown amount of time now and it bothers me. DH and my doula (midwife) keep pushing another walk and this and that but frankly I am tired. I have been up since 3AM!! I can't eat much (no appetite) and I am sure it will be another long night so I would like to just rest but I have tried and it is difficult to get beyond a short doze.
I am 38w1d, my first came at 39w. Nothing has been inside my vagina since 36w so it was not artificially ruptured. I started to lose plug two days ago and knew something would happen soon, but this wait is torture! With DS my water broke about 9 hours before contrax started so I think that nice fast experience is making this worse.
Any advice, commiseration or good stories?
