Sorry, I know, another "vent" thread.<br><br>
But what is going on??<br><br>
4 days of bloody show and loosing my plug, hours and hours of contractions 5 min apart that always fizzle. Tried different positions. Baby is always rotating from LOA to ROA.<br><br>
Why wont my body just go into labor already. I get my hopes up everytime I see bloody show and get the strong sharp contractions only for it to all go away at night when I go to bed. grrrrrrrrr.<br><br>
I'm 41+5 and just want my baby in my arms. And of course I'm not willing to do any type of home induction unless there is a true medical reason to do so. I'm just really losing my patience and faith in my body!! uuugh!!<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/irked.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="irked">

Melissa, I know it's difficult, but your body CAN and WILL birth this baby!!! Easier said than done, but letting go might be what you need right now. I'm sending you peaceful labor vibes and relaxation vibes mama!! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love">

Hugs mama! Your baby WILL be here soon!!<br><br>
I had days of bloody show and contractions that fizzled as well, and on day 4 I just gave up on hoping for labor to begin. That night, my water broke and my daughter was born almost 24 hours later.<br><br>
A few more days is SUCH a small amount of time- enjoy it and pamper yourself a bit, because busier days are ahead.

Can you convince yourself your due dates are off? Someone said that to me and I believe I went into labor the very next day. Hang in there, you're so close you can almost smell the newborn smell. All my best - wish I could be there to see this little one. I bet they'll be just as adorable as your dd. Give her a hug from us. Make some plans to celebrate how far you've come. You are so ready, all this work just means less work when babe is ready.
