So last night was another BH night with them being 10 minutes apart. I went to bed. Every time I got up to pee, they had been there still 10 minutes apart. No biggie.<br><br>
6am and I am up to pee and planning to sleep in LATE as Husband is home. Only the contractions are 6-7 minutes apart and would not let me sleep. I took a warm bath and while I did not feel any in the bath, they waited for me when I was done. LOL<br><br>
So here it is 5.5 hours after and still getting them, still only 6-7 minutes apart and not what I would call painful. I don't need to breath through them. But then I sang through labor till 7cm with my son. It was EASY. Just tight and they hurt my back.<br><br>
I have not lost my plug, no bloody show, I can not reach my cervix, and my water has not broken.<br><br>
I am soooo confused. Normally my labors start with my bloody show or my water breaking.....<br><br>
-sigh-<br><br>
Not sure what to do or plan.<br><br>
Oh, my normal midwife appointment is in 1.5 hours. I plan to go.... sitting on a towel.... LOL

Hey, maybe she is just getting alot of behind the scenes work done! I have decided I like my BH's cause they surely must be cutting off an hour or two of "hard" labor right? That's what I'm going to believe anyway! Hope you have a great appt!

I didn't lose my plug or have a bloody show till I was in active labor... About 6cm I believe. And my water never broke, my ob did arom around 8 cm so this could still be it for you.

Just false labor that is not even doing much!<br><br>
Midwife tested my blood, GD great, my Iron finally way up! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/joy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="joy"> Baby perfect and in perfect position dropped. My cervix however is a 1, and tilted back and just not ready. So I have time! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
Midwife wants me to take EPO for the cervix and special tea she gave me and work on getting the cervix ready, IF I want, she knows DH and I have trying to keep baby in for as long as we can.<br><br>
I am used to being 3-4cm at 37 weeks though and thinking about it, chances are that helps keep my labors 5 hours. Less work! So I am thinking about taking the herbs and tea.... maybe. LOL<br><br>
What a wonderful and annoying day of false labor. Great motivation to work on more diapers. I have only done 7 fitted ones I want at least 24! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/joy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="joy">
