First of all
The never ending ctx always seems to be my way of laboring.
It's so not fun. Always gets me depressed and thinking that real labor will never begin.
This is what I know, Davina. It will be soon for you. You will have a baby sooner rather than later.
She has her perfect time and will come then. Your job is to tell her what awaits her peace and love and laughter and warm milk.
Ok, so let's see... reasons to be patient with yourself and your body... it sounds like your body is doing a lot of prep work right now. I saw your other post about the positioning of your babe. Those ctx could be trying to get her into the best position. The homeopathic and excercises can help the ctx be more effective. You're doing everything, beautifully, Davina. This is not easy. It's just not. You'll probably be elated when you go into full blown labor instead of this piddly annoying ick. Bloody show isn't the best indicator that birth is on it's way, but it's a nice sign. I'd take it as proof that you won't be pregnant for another week.
Since you're tired, I'll do some thinking for you:
Are you drinking enough fluids? Dehydration can lead to ctx that don't seem to do anything.
Have you walked today? Sometimes that stops ctx or puts them into labor.
Have you tried laying down through the ctx? Sometimes laying down can actually get the ctx going into a productive pattern OR it can make them stop. If you can try committing to laying down for a 1/2 hour to an hour it might shift the pattern either speed up or slow down.
Have you tried hands and knees rocking?
Can you go to a hot tub and relax? Your own bath tub?
Can you get a massage?
Lastly, but most importantly... DO YOU FEEL READY TO BIRTH THIS BABY?
