Maybe today...or maybe not

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Wouldn't it be ironic if this baby were actually born on its due date? Ha. That would be today, and considering my water broke this morning, maybe it actually will be. However, I haven't been feeling much in the way of contractions. My doula is advising RRL tea, walking, nip stim, all that stuff, and so far nothing doing. I'm holding off on going to the hosp because I don't want to be on their timer - even though since I'm GBS+ they wanted me to go in as soon as my water broke. Yesterday they had me on a monitor and told me I was having regular contractions, but I had no idea. I couldn't feel them at all. So I'm in limbo right now. Waiting. And more waiting.

Thanks! I'm thinking of heading to the hosp tonite just to have my fluids checked. I do NOT want to be induced if I can avoid it. I hope I can do that without letting them book me in for real. Fingers crossed!
