Okay, I cheated...

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I had a stretch and sweep done this morning : Usually my midwives don't do them until 41+ weeks, but they had mentioned it last week and then suggested doing it today so I went ahead and had it done. It's more stress related than anything. I'm not actually sick and tired of being pregnant, but the closer I get to my due date (Friday) the more worried I get (long story) so they seemed to feel it was okay to go ahead with it.

So anyway, now I'm having crampy contractions about five minutes apart. It's absolutely gorgeous outside today, everything is ready, and if he picked up the pace a little, he could be here when dd gets home from school

Go for a walk or take a nice shower...that should speed things up!

Good luck and I'd cheat too!

I don't blame you. I have my next appt tomorrow and plan on getting it done. I am in so much pain. All of my pubic bones are killing me. So much pressure.

I am lossing bits of my plug. A few big chunks this morning. I guess that's a good sign. And my cervix is opening and shortening. So I am going in the right direction anyway.

Maybe this full moon is doing things to all of us.

I hope your baby comes reeeallly soon so you can get some relief!

I had round ligament pain for weeks, bad enough that I had to leave work before I had planned, I could barely walk. Somehow, it's let up in the last two weeks though..no idea why : Being in pain constantly is no fun at all!

I've been losing big chunks of my plug since last weekend, and I've also been about 3cm dilated since then so like you, I was already heading in the right direction. Part of my anxiety, (aside from the stuff I don't want to discuss and scare everyone) is that for over a week I've had contractions in the evening, that slowly build up to the point where I think I'll be calling the midwives soon, and then they just die. Every. single. night. I can't quite explain what about that scares me, because I know it's normal for lots of people, but I feel like it's not normal for me, if that makes any sense. I'm pretty high strung to begin with, so I imagine the midwives want the kid born before I drive myself insane
