Contractions! - Page 2
Thanks for all the kind thoughts, but after 14 hours of contractions... nothing. :( They weren't progressing very quickly. They were close together but not very strong at all. I walked around the block to try to get them going stronger they were starting to get real intense so I went to lay down, fell asleep for like a half an hour and when I woke up they were so weak. I've had a few random ones since, but nothing like before. I'm so disappointed. Maybe they'll pick up again? I really don't understand how they tapered off so quickly. I'm starting to think the only way she'll come out is an induction. She's still moving around a lot so at least I know she's okay.
Please don't feel like your body is defective because it's taking so long! Anywhere from 37-42 weeks is still normal:) no one has ever been pregnant forever:)
Labor vibes, and peaceful thoughts being sent your way!
Hugs to you ... dont give up... induction is hard on you both if you realize it or not. I know you probably feel ready for it to happen, but she needs more time. maybe turn down the induction and give it time... your body is growing such a wonderful baby and she might be like my DD's and need more time to cook, or be over achievers of the uterus!!!! hang in there mama!
