I'm frustrated, but there is nothing I can do.
Doctor did a check and I am so crampy right now because of it I think. I am 1 cem dialated and 50% effaced.
i can't decide if I should sleep, take a hot bath, or walk to try and get things moving. I have no idea....
I thought it was going to be it. I thought he was going to be born today! I thought the cramps meant something! I mean, they do I guess, SOMETHING is going on down there.. hopefully it progresses soon!
I know its hard to be patient...btdt. But, things will go better if you rest and forget it all for now...

Mine definitely broke, but I'm not getting anymore right now because the baby is low enough to block it.

Doc said I am 1 cem. dilated and 50% ( only??!!) effaced.
I took a hot bath earlier and a nap. I'm about to go for a walk now- not necessarily to get things moving but just to get some fresh air. I have a hard time being cooped up in my house all day long!
Thank you all for helping me as I go through this....

Sounds like labor is starting. Get off the computer and do whatever you can to relax!
Yes this...and with my first I was throwing up with ctx...so that can be normal. But rest as much as you can! Hope all goes well!
