Yep! That's my plan!! People ask me where I'm planning to have my baby (which hospital or birth center) and I say right here and wave my hands in the general area of my thighs -- the only thing I can be sure of it that the baby will born next to my body -- I have no idea where my body will be.

Hope the more active parts of labor go more smoothly for you (although what you've experienced sounds plenty active to me!). All the best for a healthy and wonderful delivery when the baby's ripe and time is right!

Saw this under new posts. I totally know how you feels mamas. I had prodromal labor for a week! I had contractions 6-10 minutes apart for a week, almost nonstop followed up by over 48 hrs of labor at home and then 5 more at the hospital. It's worth it though. Your body knows what it's doing. I had a VBA2C by not rushing things. Get as much rest as you can when it calms down and know that you are sooooo close! ful resting vibes and labor vibes (when you and baby are ready).

I keep having episodes of prodromal, but at least they seem to have eased off at night. Even though baby has dropped my heartburn is redicuous though and gaviscon doesn't touch it. I had to sleep sitting up last night. I see the OB tomorrow and I am sure she will want to check, here is hoping for some progress

Always thought "Is THIS is???" And then, with each of those pregnancies, when something finally changes (my water broke), BBBBBAAAAAAMMMM !!! I had the baby.

#1 -- Prodromal for weeks, then
dead asleep, ROM, 45 minutes later a baby in my hands

#2 -- Prodromal for weeks, then
ROM, 2 hours of almost nothing
then 15 minutes of labor and a baby in my hands!

#3 -- Prodromal for weeks, then
ROM
3 hours of horrid contractions with baby posterior
(? because of bedrest the last 3 months of pregnancy)
and cervix not dilating at all
pulled my own cervix forward and held it through 3 contractions
20 minutes later, a baby in my hands

I hope your prodromal labor rewards you with equally efficient births.
Dang! Now that's what I call FAST labor!!!

Hope everyone is feeling well today and had a restful sleep!

Last night I was up from about midnight until four am with contractions three/four minutes apart and major back pain. I didn't have any back pain with dd but since this baby is posterior, it is painful! The contractions seem to have gotten further apart now and less intense so today I'm just going to try and rest and do my exercises to move this baby.
