well i think ive checked in about 30 times in the last hour...so its time to leave you a note saying that I`m thinking about you, and I hope we`re not hearing from you because you`re pushing that baby out OR you already have him/her in your arms!
Hiya! No baby yet, progress is slow but I'm fine w/it.
At my 6:30 check I was the same as at 2:30: 80%, 2cm. Baby seems to have turned ROP (posterior) but MW isn't concerned. I opted to take an hour off the monitor, so I got dressed and we sat on the garden patio for a few, then took a walk thru the hosp, outside a bit, then back in. It's really nice out. Wouldn't you know it--as soon as I was dressed & out, the ctx finally became hard and regular at 3min apart! So we stayed relatively close.
We came back after the hour was up, and I'm now back on the monitor for a 20min strip, then MW will be back to check me and see what to do next. If I'm not ready to move on to the next phase, I'm opting for more miso. I still feel it's too early to do AROM, esp in light of the baby's position.
Funny thing: MW says I have a FANTASTIC pelvis and isn't worried about the baby not having room to rotate at all!
DH just took a pic of me grimacing through a ctx. Niiiice! They are still at 3min.
So there we go. I don't have too many complaints about how this is going, but my hand (heplock) aches a bit. They're taking good care of me and I still feel like I have some control over what happens. I can honestly say these ctx feel good. I've been waiting so long for them!
Rooting for you guys over here!!! You're doing amazing! An inspiration definitely.
Will be stalking all night.
YAY!! Your attitude is amazing. I will be stalking you all night, so keep the updates coming for us!! I can hardly wait. The waiting is agonizing
so glad those contrax are picking up...i wouldn't opt for the water breakage yet either...Charlotte was posterier for 24 hours and water breaking was H@##...I wish i would've known more then to opt out of that....i knew more for Ramona tho!
So hang in there...i'm pretty beat today so i'll check in a couple more times, but then i'm off...im sure ill check when i got potty in the night
best of luck helina!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
