Surely this is it.... my very own labour thread. - Page 2

post #21 of 88
Correct me if I'm wrong but and type/color of "show" is indicative of an active cervix. So, *something* is definately happenin' down below

:

I had colds during every one of my births : , maybe our immune systems go down just before labour an make us more susceptible?...

Looking forward to your updates

meh, no progress... at least not in timing or length of contractions. DH has gone to pick up the skids from school, they'll be here for a few hours and I think my body is waiting until they are gone back to thier mom's.

DH checked to see what he could feel of my cervix and said it was different than it was, but couldn't find the "other side" so I have no idea how much real progress I'm making. He's stopping to pick up some Gravol on the advice of my MW so I might be able to get a bit of a nap in that isn't interrupted every 5 min by contractions. Waters are still intact and baby is still moving so I'm good to labour as long as it takes. Rotten kid is paying me back for my mom's labour with me, I just know it.

Well, the MW came and went. Baby looks good... dropping but not engaged yet. Cervix is too far back to find the opening just yet, but things are moving along. She said take a nap and maybe my contractions will sort themselves out into a more regular pattern (instead of being anywhere from 2-9 min apart and varying in strength according to the length). Looks like this will be a May 3 baby, not a May 2 baby!

Had some sleep, 10 min at a time, but better than nothing. Woke up to a HUGE glob of blood tinged mucous plug! Ewwwww! Things are still the same, though contractions are a bit more intense.

Maybe I should join the "I'm going to be pregnant forever" thread!

Now that would just be confusing Though it could be a while yet.

Remember to enjoy and appreciate this process

Still no baby..... feeling a little more like a bowling ball between my legs though, and my hips are grinding and SO uncomfortable to get up and down. Contractions are SO painful to lay down, but tiring if I stand, and slowed down enough that I was able to sleep straight through a good hour, then doze another hour. Now I'm hungry!

Maybe try standing in the shower with the warm/hot water running on your back? That always helped me so much!

Kristen...hope things are now progressing! Thinking aboutcha, and giving you more steady labor vibes... Go baby go!
post #38 of 88
Do we have a baby? Hope you got some rest!
post #39 of 88
I hope things are picking up for you. The shower always worked for me to get things into high gear. I hope you are holding your baby soon!
