Well today is my DD birthday, she's turning 9.  So we'll see if I have two babies with the same birthday.  Still no active labor, but usually when I do go into active labor it tends to be pretty quick....So while I was at my OB's office yesterday she put me on the fetal moniter for 20 minutes,  I agreed out of curiosity (My last three pregnancies were unassisted as well as the births)  So the moniter was picking up that I was contracting every 5 minutes,  but I only felt one of those contractions.....Interesting.

Yesterday starting at about noon I had consistent contractions for about 14 hours, 3-4 minutes apart, sometimes closer!!! I really thought I was going to have the baby,  They were pretty strong too, I felt close and this being my 5th baby, I thought I knew what I was doing!!  They didn't hurt though and were really intense, orgasmic at times.  Then at around 2 in the morning,  I just begged for them to stop so I could get some sleep, well I got my wish, now nothing!!  Midwife says this can happen with the 4th and 5th babies sometimes,  The body just takes a little longer to get back into it.   I am so TIRED and my house is now a huge mess with 4 kids running it while my partner holds me for hours.  OMG!! never ever had anything like this before,  Usually it's so fast and easy.

Thanks Ladies.  I feel rested up now and ready to go.

 

They seem to have stopped all together!! I'll be going for a long walk today.  I'm not sure what is going on now.  I thought they would pick back up. I've considered taking herbs or something but I don't want it to go too quick. plus I'm 4.5 cm and I'm not sure how effaced I am but me and my midwife had a hard time even finding my cervix and the bag of waters is poking through.   So it's only a matter of time.

Thinking of you Amor Rays! I'm glad you got some rest!  I hope things go quick and smooth from here!
