Still home - just got off the phone with my midwife who seems frustrated with me that I did not come to the hospital for a NST today. (I have a doppler at home and baby has been fine/moving a ton all day) I had a feeling if I went today I would somehow have stayed there and given up. I have an appt tomorrow morning at 10am which will be 37 hours after water breaking. I'm starting to get a little depressed about it. Am hoping whatever happens, I can get a good night sleep tonight.
water just broke? but no contractions yet. - Page 2
Hang in there mama! I have read stories about mamas with leaking waters for several days who have gone on to spontaneous labor. As long as you're comfortable with how things are going and baby is doing well, I personally would ride it out too. Keep us posted and let us know how you're doing emotionally. I had several days of prodromal labor with my second and it was pretty disheartening, so I can only imagine what you are feeling right now.
thank you so much for all the kind words and thoughts, they have been helpful to me!
my contractions started up around 2am and have been regular ever since. we met the midwife at the hospital about 2 hours ago, I was 3cm then. Not sure now, limiting exams since it's been 36 hours since my water broke.
kids are home (no school for them today because of baby) with the inlaws and my darling husband is SNORING on the chaise near my bed. hoping things keep moving and I don't need anything else....
just a side note, I forgot how much more painful contractions are after the water breaks! I'm always so lucky that is breaks nearing the end or while pushing....oy.
