I give up. :(  This is officially the baby who will never be born.  Tons of bloody show for over 24 hours.  Contractions that have gotten a little stronger, but have never gotten strong enough, or close enough, or regular enough to do anything.  I've been talking to the midwife on the phone every few hours and have to keep saying that still, nothing exciting is happening.  I'm really hoping I imagined that some of my water broke so that when I go in to let them check, they'll let me leave again, and continue infinite pre-labor in peace.

Oh mckittre, I know how hard and frustrating this is!!  I suggest either having an alcoholic drink or getting an Ambien or something from your MW so you can get a rest.  Then have a good cry and wake up ready to go again.  I'm thinking of you!!!!!

My midwife had me drink one glass of wine and lie down to quiet prodromal contractions. I know how much they suck! A small amount of wine really does help.

another vote for the glass of wine...I had one in the middle of the night last night because I couldn't take the constant on and off again contractions and needed to sleep. 

thinking of you though...right along side you with lots of empathy. I know you are more overdue than I though. 

Mind me asking which town you are waiting in right now? I used to live in AK and just wondered...

Well, maybe it really is it this time?  I hate to keep my hopes up, but after a long walk and a long session of nursing my toddler, contractions seem to be getting stronger this evening.  And unlike other times, they demand more of my attention and aren't petering out if I sit down.  

Please?  Please be it!  I thought I might have a solstice baby, but I'll take New Years.  And it's going to get harder to hold off induction if baby doesn't show up soon.  Everyone cross fingers for me some more!

Mckittre - fast baby vibes to you today!  May you have a 1/1/11 baby!  That would be such a cool bday.  That is what I was hoping for, but in New Zealand that day has come and gone!  So I hope you get it, you deserve it!  Anyway, sending you lots of baby birth vibes!

 

Thanks Starshine, you are right, they do come out sooner or later, that was reassuring.  Funny how the whole pregnancy goes so fast, but this last bit seems to take forever.  If I could sleep better at night I would be able to do more things during the day and then maybe time would go faster.  Anyone else having terrible sleep patterns?
