Beyond frustrated this morning. We went and walked the mall yesterday. Then we DTD and I spent the rest of Audrey's nap time resting in bed and watching Arrested Development. I started having contractions around 4. The got stronger and closer all afternoon and evening. At 10:30 they were about 6-7 mintutes apart and decently strong. Not terribly painful, but they required my attention. I decided to take a shower and lay down for a while. Poof! They magically disappeared. I just want to cry
Hang in there, Shannon! It definitely sounds like things are picking up, but I can imagine how frustrated you are with the induction scheduled for Wednesday. I have a feeling that things are going to kick into gear very soon!
Thanks guys. I think I'm going to go for a long walk again this morning then attack DH again
I think I'm feeling a lot of anxiety because I'll need to call and talk to my doctor tomorrow if I'm canceling or pushing back the induction. I don't know why I'm so adverse to talking to him. I really can't even put my finger on what I'm scared of. Is it a people pleasing thing? I don't know.
I'm sorry for the disappointing night. I do understand being frustrated when you are trying everything possible to encourage things and none of them are working.
I'm not sure why I was nervous about dealing with my doctor either. I do not feel that way at all with the MWs. Maybe b/c I had a 4 year relationship with my OB and she was with me through all the challenges of my first pg, delivered Zoe, helped me through my 3 mos long m/c last year. She is such a nice person, I felt guilty about disagreeing with her on this birth.
I am sorry things are being so annoying! Would doing some hypnobabies help before calling your doc?

I forgot to mention this before but I read that putting somthing hot on your tummy like a rice sock will help the baby turn into a better position. I have don't this with my little guy and he really likes the heat and will move his little butt and back right under the rice sock.
Just came in to see how things were going Shannon. I am sorry that it is so frustrating for you now (as I know it would be for me at this point!) Hang in there. Gus is almost here!!!
Just popping in to check on you, Shannon. Hang in there! Baby Gus will be here any day now.....
