Water broken, no labor for 17 hours

Sigh. I'm at hospital with ruptured membranes (broke at 2 am) but no labor. Hate being away from my girls, but enjoying rest and refuge from huge snowstorm outside. Send me strong uterine vibes, mamas!

Hey, good luck!!! I was just reading some birth stories including malposition and stalled labor (sometimes with broken waters). If you haven't tried some spinning babies techniques like belly lifting or other positions yet, that may help? Also nipple stim can really really get things going with broken waters but it's gotta be sustained for long periods. will check back in to see how you're doing. hoping for a healthy baby!

Wife to my Sweetness and Light, DH (03), WAHM to DS('01), DS('11), and DS('13) and our first, beloved DD('15). Encouraging mothers everywhere to write for their lives. Expecting our last rainbow baby January 2018. MMC Saorise Mar at 13 weeks will always be in our hearts. <3

Starting pitocin now. Slept wonderfully. There is a massive storm outside so baby's opting to stay in!

Pitocin is no joke! It is strong stuff and the contractions nearing the end were incredibly brutal, but once I was complete, Marshall Benson came with two panting pushes. awesome midwife helped me avoid a c section after 48 hours of broken waters. Wow, do we love him!
Marshall developed pneumonia 24 hours after birth and we've been healing and growing in the NICU. There have been some dark days but he is strong and so am I!
