40+4geez, there's so much activity here this morning!
amanda, that is SO exciting! i hope things are going well in labor right now.
and the same goes for you, crbyard! today is a fine day to have a baby.
ruthiegirl, i had a night like that a few days ago- i slept for soooo long, i was a little frightened when i woke up, that something was wrong. but i think it was my body collecting its strength. with all of that prodromal stress you've been under lately, it's no wonder that your body would stop you for an evening to recharge. maybe it means things will start happening more quickly now.
to-fu, i'm sorry you've been in this pattern, too. i'm sure you've gotten lots of advice, but maybe you could walk a bit? i found that in my prodromal experiences, it helped the contractions to be more effective until the point that my water broke... and then there was no turning back. but then again, i didn't have any bloody show until the actual labor day, so maybe my advice means nothing in your situation. still, you have my sympathy and encouragement!
anudi, i, too suffered sinus torture through my whole week 39. i could not breathe without moaning in pain, and swallowing was nearly impossible. i don't remember feeling so sick in at least a decade. i really hope you feel better very soon. like: now. during my time sick in this thread, lots of people encouraged me that the baby would hold off as long as my body wasn't strong enough to labor, but you gotta believe i was nervous about it. so, um, yeah. i will send all of my healing vibes to you today.
dov'smom- hope you're hanging in there ok, too. it sounds like you're in good company with the coming-and-going ctx, but i am sure they're getting you somewhere!
things here are fine. i'm pretty comfortable as long as i keep active- my treadmill is my best friend right now. passing ctx, but nothing very exciting and absolutely no MP or bloody show. i am feeling very thankful that the baby is anterior and that i am feeling strong and healthy. trying not to let any stress get to me- ignoring phone calls or e-mails or comments i hear from people about being overdue. shove it, peeps! baby will come when baby is ready! at least that's how i feel this week!
gotta have another NST and fluid check today.
wishing everyone HEALTH, ELVs, and a happy day.
