I had a membrane sweep done yesterday morning. I will be 42 weeks tomorrow.

I have been having some nice contractions since 6 this morning but nothing regular. It's a bit frustrating. I know it's silly but I really was hoping to magically go into labor after the sweep yesterday.

I was dilated to around a 4 which I realize means nothing in terms of going into labor but dang it...I'm 42 weeks pregnant so I'm taking it as a hopeful sign.

I'm rolling and bouncing on my ball and figured I'd ask you guys for some serious prayers.

So send up some labor prayers for me and send me any birthing vibes you can muster up!

I feel for you mama!


My mom carried me 42+4 days and she said it was walking up and down the driveway and blackberry pie that finally did the trick.

Sending some strong vibes your way for an easy, joyful delivery of your little blessing. Good luck!

eta: it sounds like things are happening! some labors just go slow & steady!

Sending positive labor vibes your way. FWIW, RRL tincture helped boot my blessing out. Hope you have a babe in arms soon!
