I'm 40 weeks today with my second, and ive had two false alarms in the past couple of weeks and lots of on and off contractions. Starting friday I have had this pattern where I wake up in the am, start contracting, and through the coarse of the day they get more steady and more intense. I go to bed thinking I better get some sleep because this might be it. Then I end up sleeping most of the night with only a few contractions waking me. This has been happening for 3 days and nights... Each day the contractions are more intense, in fact, yesterday they hurt and I was having trouble walking and talking through them. My midwife says my cervix is very ready and the baby just needs to come down a bit more for things to take off. Every day I wake up and spend my day trying to balance living my life and doing things to help this baby drop. Im spending as much time as i can sitting on my ball instead of the couch, im doing some spinning babies positioning techniques and im walking. Dh and I have also dtd every day... I realize that babies come when they are ready and i don't intend on doing anything invasive to force labor, but jee wiz!! My baby hangs out in a good ROA position sometimes flipping to the left so its not an OP baby. Advice/ experience/ encouragement please?!
