Off and on wouldn't have surprised me that much. This has been...weird. After my initial 12 hours of having small contractions every 3 minutes, it hasn't been on and off. It's been pretty steady - just very, very slow. I had a few gaps of as much as 20 minutes on Monday, but I've had contractions at least every 7 minutes ever since...and mostly around 4-5. They've been a minute long for two days. OTOH, they're not super intense, so at least I'm getting some sleep. As long as I get enough rest, the long drawn out labour doesn't bother me.
Let me see...I'm now...16 days "overdue". That part doesn't bother me at all, though - I was fully expecting to be at least 12.
I do hope I have this baby before the end of the weekend, though - this has really played havoc with dh's work schedule.
|I dont even really know how to calculate how long her labor was because it took days and weeks to get that baby out.
Unless something changes, I can at least figure this one out easily. It started at 4:30 on Sunday. I know what you mean, though - I had weeks of "start and stop" pre-labour with ds2.
