Just getting caught up on things. I am thrilled you are having regular contrax.
About cervadil/miso induced labor vs natural.....I also thought I would go at least as fast if not faster with a natural labor. The OB and the MWs told me to get to the hospital a little earlier than most people would b/c it would likely be really quick. We were all wrong!
Induced labor: Miso given @ midnight, hard contrax began without warning at 6:30 am, Zoe born at 10:59 am.
Natural labor: Strong contrax 5 mins apart began @ 11:30 pm, Liam born at 9:00 am. The contrax were much more manageable this time.
Interesting... I know it can be differnent for everyone. A girlfriend of mine had a short 2.5 labor with her cervidil induced 2nd with nothing but period type cramps until the end.
I've lost the ctxs again. I was starting to get hopeful with loose stool (tmi sorry) all morning. I just can't seem to get it going into full labor. It's quite discouraging.
DH set up the studio and helped me get a belly shot with my kids today. Thought I'd share my almost 41 week belly!
I love the picture! Sorry things have slowed again.

Great picture! I hope the contractions pick up again!
Try not to be discouraged. They'll pick up soon.
(I went 42 weeks, but was in no rush)
Just a beautiful photo. You'll be so glad you had the extra time to take that one!

Oh I love that photo! What a great memory to have. I cannot get over Adelle's hair! It's so long and sleek - it makes her look older than she is! And soooo different from the curly hair look.
So sorry that labour is teasing you so much. I wish it would just get going for you already! I only had 2 days of on/off labour with Owen and THAT was very frustrating so I can't imagine having it go on and on like this. Are you definitely going in tomorrow for the induction? Either way, still sending you lots of LABOUR NOW vibes! Hang in there.
