Seems like there are so many babies already earthside! On one hand it gives me hope, I've been watching (reading) those mama's go through all the pre-labor stuff for weeks & now many of them are holding their sweet little ones. On the other hand, I have been 50% effaced & 2 cm dilated for a week. MW doubled my EPO dose today. I feel like the character from "Bee Movie" , who continues to slam into the window expecting a different result. "Maybe this time, this time, this time." & my pre-labor contractions always end. Today has been the longest so far, its 11 pm, & I've been contracting since 6:15 pm. Not getting stronger, not getting more intense, not changing whether I eat, drink, lay down, walk, move around. Frankly I hope this is not the real thing this time, as I am already exhausted from the 5 hours of braxton-hicks or pre-labor contractions, whatever the hell they are. Luckily DH will be home shortly & can take over DD1, who I allowed to stay up late because I'm just too tired for her bedtime routine. I'm headed straight to bed to deep-breathe myself to sleep. That's what worked last night after just over 3 hours of this pre-labor nonsense.
Any mama's in this boat with me? Still?
