Your situation sounds just like mine, only we did not realize I was not actually peeing. I went to the bathroom time after time after time, I always felt I HAD to go but never realized nothing was actually coming out but amniotic fluid. I just thought that was normal labor feelings. My midwife never caught on so I just got fuller and fuller slowing labor. I have NO idea how to make yourself go, I honestly don't think I could have made myself, I think for some reason the tube was blocked and the only way was a catheter. Unless some experienced birth person who has had some experience with this particular problem reads this and has some other solution, the only way I can see is to test for urine and if none is ever present, go for the catheter. I would much rather have a catheter than another knife! Let me know if in your research you find an answer. We are expecting to be expecting # 2 in July, we are really hoping! Also going for another homebirth! Good Luck!
