It was a very very long boring day until labor started at which time, it was VERY intense and, yes, it was painful. Three pushes got him out and we were done at 4 min till midnight. His stats are IDENTICAL to DS1s in all references.

We're doing well and just chillin' trying to keep a very exhausted DS1 from being TOO friendly and big-brotherish.

Unless upnorthmama and mama2libby are also in labor, you're probably not last! (Though wouldn't it be funny/cool if you all had your babies at roughly the same time?)

ELVs to you! :

Yeppy for you!!!!

I am still here...not in labour. Going in for induction in the am. Crossing my fingers for a mother's day miracle.

Still here and still pregnant. My OB will let me go until Wednesday. I'll be 42 weeks then. Instead of a planned c-section I will go in and have my waters broken in a last attempt to start something up. (can't do pitocin b/c of VBAC).

UGHHHH!!! Water broke at 2:30am on Mothers Day.. had great contractions all day until 3pm and then NOTHING!!! I've been stalled since then. Now I'm going to try and get a good nights sleep and then work my butt off tomorrow to get this labor going again.. So frustrating cause I was doing so well!! So I'm still in the running for last

hugs to you both!! hoping your babies decide to come on their own, but also sending you lots of quick and easy induction vibes too just in case you need them

Junipersmom - have you tried homeopathic caulophyllum? it can really help get ctx regulated. after having regular, mild ctx all day long about 10 minutes apart, my m/w suggested i take a dose ever 30 minutes for a few hours. i did, then went to sleep for about an hour, and woke up in labor for real. might be worth a try, the homeopathic is quite mild compared with its herbal counterpart which i hear can be harsh on the system.

This was what my option was if i didn't go into labor on own...but i did! I hope that happens for you and you get your : in the meantime!
