I've Been In Labour The Last 24 Hours

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I've been having slight crampy contractions that are very sporadic but I feel it might be another few days or so.

I've had to get in a hot bath just to feel more comfortable and my husband has been really good with rubbing my lower back and making me feel better. He's a massage therapist. I know, I'm pretty lucky. :P

I was planning on an UC but I've changed my mind and I'm going with a midwife at a local hospital around here. They are willing to work with all my birthing wants and needs such as a squatting bar, a birthing ball, a doula, no vitamin k or eye drops, no bottles, no pacifiers, no antibiotics, no IV, delayed cord clamping and cutting, no pain medicine whatsoever, etc.

I'm very happy and very excited.

Any words of encouragement? This is my first baby. I'm 3 days away from 40 weeks.

I'm excited for you, Mama! Wishing you a blessed birth. Try to get as much rest as possible for now and then stay active when things pick up - walking, stairs, birth ball, hands and knees, etc.

I hope you have a great birth!

I've read that a hot bath can slow labor down. But if you're just at 40 wks maybe there's no hurry.

Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Maybe the hot baths are slowing it down a bit but I figure when she really wants to be in this world, she will.

I have a feeling that I have a stubborn baby.
