Okay, I thought with the second baby things just happen, well, faster
. So far, this labor is looking eerily like it did with DD#1 and that is pretty scary to me because I lost my energy to cope and ended up in the hospital with an epidural and pitocin.
I've been up all night. Literally. I rested, a bit, but I didn't sleep at all. I have had ctx pretty regularily since about 11:00 pm. Most of them are pretty strong (like I have to breathe through them and focus), but the kicker is they aren't close together. Maybe at best 5 minutes, but most more like 10-15.
I called my mw at about 3:00 am and she said to take a bath and try to get some sleep and call her when things picked up. Well, I took the bath, tried to sleep, things are kinda sorta maybe picking up now?
If this labor is anything like my first this baby won't be born until tomorrow afternoon. I can't do this that long!
Any words of wisdom, mamas? I feel like I'm being a big baby, but I'm super exhausted, and I can't imagine these ctx stopping, slowing down OR picking up!
