what is wrong with me?! This is #4, you'd think I'd know when I was in actual labor, sheeeesh.

It happened Christmas morning. I didn't go to the hospital then, but I was all ready to. Then again this morning. Ctrx wake me up at 3. I can't sleep, I just don't feel good. Then by 7/8 the ctrx are gone and I am just super tired because I haven't slept! This morning I actually went to the hospital.

I would much rather go into labor on my own, but I know my dr. will offer induction sometime next week. It's so tempting to just say, ok I'll take the induction & the epidural and just do this thing already . Maybe I'm just having a bad day.

(((mamasthree))) I'm sorry, and I can sympathize. Makes induction look so good, doesn't it? Hang in there!

I've been have ctrx for over a month and they got so strong Saturday night that I leaked a bit I thought it was labour and went to the hospital. The contractions were strong when they hooked up the monitor but they soon slowed down and they sent me home : Again yesterday morning they were real strong but I waited them out.

The OB said if I haven't gone by next week we'll talk about being induced since I have been having major pain issues with my gallbladder ect...(I have ulcerative colitis) I'm doing everything I can to get things moving!

I know your frustration, I have discovered that no two pregnancies/labors are the same. For the first time ever I lost my mucous plug and had a lot of bloody show on the 23rd-24th, and then NOTHING! I have only had two labors (#3 and #5) where I even noticed that before and it was during transition.

I know in my head that my body is preparing but emotionally I am becoming a wreck and I still have 2-3 weeks to go. It doesn't help that I have birthed a baby at 37w, 38w, 39w, 40w and 41w twice. I really don't want to wait that long.

Best wishes and happy gestating/preparing for labor!
Sarah

I thought I was officially starting labor on Sunday but no dice. I'm 39 weeks, 2 days and the thought of working next week makes me want to cry! I'm sending some good, serious labor vibes your way :

I feel ya.

With every ctx, I wonder "Is this it?" because we've had some close calls. Yesterday I had ctx 5-min apart for almost an hour and a half! Today I had a midwife appt and she said it could easily be another week, even though I'm 3-4cm dilated already. SIGH!
