On 2/15 I labored for 10 hours with contractions being two minutes apart and one minute long. The midwife came over and said I was 4cm dilated and baby engaged. After about 10 hours of contractions, labor just stopped.
On Sunday I had my "bloody show" and it continued on Monday. Monday night at 10:30pm I went into labor again with contractions being 40 seconds apart and lasting 1.5-2.5 minutes. After 6 hours of labor, the midwife checked me again and I was 10cm at the top with my cervix funneling down into 7cm with my water bag bulging. After 8 hours of labor, my contractions stopped again.
I'm still getting a few painful ctx off and on, but nothing worth timing. Baby is so low it hurts to walk and I have back pain from him being posterior. My midwife thinks his chin isn't tucked so that's why my cervix is dilating the way it is and why I have an anterior cervical lip. I've tried several exercises on spinningbabies to try and get him to tuck his chin and flip to anterior but nothing is working.
Does anyone have any suggestions of how to get labor going again or to get him in an optimal position? Anyone had a labor like this? I feel like the only one. I'm emotionally exhausted from this labor pattern.
fyi I'm 38w6d and this is my 2nd baby
