I'm so frustrated because a) my OB never even came to check me and b) because I'm STILL at it. I never dilated past 3cm with DS#1 and I'm afraid I won't with this one. And how good is it for the baby to be going through this for 5 days now? I'm worried it is stressing him too much.
I just want it to either STOP for now or do SOMETHING progressive.
I have an app't at 1:30 today, but I just know they won't give me any advice or suggestions...WHY did I not just change OBs?
(I don't want to be induced, but I am worried about how long I've been doing this...contracting so hard sometimes every 30 seconds...and what it is doing to the baby.)
If something doesn't feel right to you, trust your instincts. Some babies just take a bit longer in the early stage to efface/dilate & then start active labor quickly & very efficiently.
Keep us posted.

also, did they check you for a UTI? sometimes a UTI can cause painful contractions.
otherwise, rest and drink lots of water.

Thanks for all of the advice and info. mamas! I am going to try and take it easy and drink tons. I don't want to rush things either, but I was so worried about how this was affecting the wee one.
