My water broke yesterday about 5pm but no real ctx has started. My midwife will be coming over this morning to start me on herbs in hopes that I will go into labor. In Alaska if I am not in active labor, thats 4cm dilated, then I have to go to the hospital. She will be checking me this morning to see where I am at and hopefully I can have my home waterbirth today

Well my water didn't break and I am still prego. I was sure it did and my midwife didn't check me till I was about to go into the hospital. I was so upset that I even checked myself with the strip. So my midwife and doula left. I feel so bad and dissapointed cause I told everyone my water broke and everyone keeps asking if the baby is here. I drank 6oz of castrol oi, blue and black cohosh. My stomach is so upset. I even pumped for a few hours so my nipples are so sore. I am still only 1cm

The funny thing is I am having ctx now. Oh well...going to bed (hopfully) cause I am so tired.

Oh no! That is so disappointing. Maybe it did break a little, but resealed itself. Maybe not, but you could at least tell yourself that so that you don't feel like you're losing your mind!

Here's hoping you go into labor today!

My stomach sure feels different. Its not as streched out as before, maybe the baby just dropped lower? I am not going to be doing any of the castrol oil again. I am just hoping to go into labor or on the 28th will be going into the hospital. Can't believe none of that stuff worked. Its not like I am early, I am 41+4 days.

I just don't understand, my body is not doing anything at all.

DDCC... But please make sure you're taking CASTOR oil, not Castrol oil! VERY different things.

Hope your little one decides it's time soon!

DDC crashing too...

If your water really does break .... avoid vaginal exams, drink emergen-c, take your temp orally every 2-3 hours to watch for infection...

Congrats on your soon-to-be home waterbirth!!!!!

Well my midwife didn't check me till we were about to go to the hospital and it didn't break. So I feel stupid. She had me take 6oz of castol oil and take blue and black cohosh to get labor going. Which didn't do anything. So now I have to have a hospital birth this saturday and I am so upset I don't get my home birth.

I'm so sorry mama! Maybe your body will decide it's time before Saturday. Could you still have your homebirth if you go into labor today or tomorrow?

Becca~ My mom went 3 weeks over her due date with my brother. I went 4 and 5 weeks early with my boys. The female body has a mind of its own sometimes. It may feel dissapointing right now, but as soon as you are holding your babe, be it in a house or hospital, it will all be but a distant memory

I know, thanks for reminding me. I am trying to calm down and relax but having 4 people stay with us in a 2bd 1bath condo, when there is already 4 people living here, is making it hard lol.

But I will surely keep you all posted as soon as she comes. Actually having ctx now so you just never know lol. Trying to think positive.
