not in your DDC but two of my friends are so I was looking here to see how they were doing.
anyways... i dont know why you feel like your body is too worn out to go into labor... is there a reason? Is it just because you are tired of being pregnant? If so you have more than enough reason to be sick of being pregnant... you have a reason and then some!!
but trust your body...
what you are experiencing is normal, "false" labor is annoying and lasts forever for some women...me included.. i had contractions that were real for around 3 weeks and i made it past 42 weeks with both of my kids.
All pregnancies are different so this one being different doesnt mean anything is wrong per se, just different.
Inductions are brutal and I know that you know the side effects of the pitocin/etc. and the risks associated so I wont go into them.
I just wanted to say that I have been there... both of my children were late. Quite late and I really thought more than once that my body had betrayed me, especially after my marathon 50+ hour labors... but all my body needed was patience.... and I gave it what it needed. It thanked me with two beautiful kids after what seemed like torture. I wouldnt do things any differently because the elation I felt afterwards and the peace of being at home staring at their beautiful faces without worrying about having them taken away for tests or anything else was worth every pain all over again.
you can do it mama. You truly can. You are strong and you have made it this far. Pregnancy doesnt last forever. I promise.
