4 hours with no change so far...

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

I started contracting for a bit under a minute every 5 minutes about 4 hours ago. 2 hours ago it was exciting, now it's getting annoying. No change in intensity, no bloody show, no mucus plug.

 

DH works graveyards 45 mins away, so ideally this will pick up or stop in the next 2 hours. But we birth an hour from home and the thought of packing up 3 sleeping kids and gear and travelling in labour is pretty terrible to me. Yikes!

 

I want this baby to come, and the sooner the better, but a  bit more obvious start earlier in the day would be nice...

How are you this morning?  Hopefully busy holding your new baby!   Keep us posted.   My last labor was very long and slow to progress- ugggh.  Hoping yours picked up after you posted last night.

Thanks everybody! A warm bath and early bed and they stopped. Definitely a relief. We go to my inlaws today, which is where we plan to birth, so if things pick up again we're where I want to be. I'll feel a lot better about that. I might even jump on the trampoline a few times before we get in the van. Ha!

Glad to hear you're in a good place.... both mentally and geographically!

 

And LMAO at the visual of a 40-weeker on a trampoline!  OMG if that were me you'd have to haul me off with a crane!!!
