For all those momma's out there with kiddos, did you have any issues getting into a good labor rhythm with your 1st+ kiddos around? I have been having off and on contractions for weeks now. My official due date was 3/21 which I realize was only yesterday, but this on and off, "is it time, is it not" is getting mentally and emotionally exhausting. It seems I'll have really good contractions, strong (not active labor strong, but noticable) and about 6 minutes apart all throughout the day but then evening rolls around and I have to get my DS ready for bed and the contractions go away. We do still co-sleep with him and we cuddle up and I sleep really well through the night but I get so frustrated when I wake up and no active labor and no baby. Maybe my body and baby just aren't ready to come out yet, but I'm getting so restless. Anyone else experience this? What did you do?
We are planning for a home birth and are comfortable with my DS being around so I just can't figure out if I'm too worried about taking care of him or if it's just not time yet.
