Cindy I'm really sorry to hear it hurts so much. Hopefully he'll book his ideas up and GET OUT!

Ok... so last night I thought I would be going in, but no. Sorry for the whining and ranting. I still hurt but the labor is appearing to be more progressive so that is positive. Meanwhile, still homeschooling and helping DH with his art business. Getting to spend time with MIL and enjoying it.
Samuel, my youngest has been teething pretty hard, but is doing rather well considering. A bit whiney but that is to be expected.
Well, I will update later if anything new happens. I love you all! Thanks for the encouragement and comments! You all are the best!
ah man, so she's leaving soon - think if you asked her she could stay a bit longer?
That's so neat! I can't believe I missed that you homeschool lol We've been homeschooling for just over 2yrs now - the only one that's been to public school is my oldest, he went to kindergarden & the early part of 1st before we pulled him
Cindy, I am sorry that you are so uncomfortable. I really do know what you are going through- my ds1 was "right there" for 5.5 weeks and I was absolutely miserable. I was sure he was never going to be born... (((HUGS)))
Rest assured that he *will* be born though! And good for you for still doing all of your stuff while feeling so down- I find it so hard to get motivated in that frame of mind, sometimes.
So glad that your mil has been able to be there, and wish she could stay longer... Is there anyone (friends or anything in your new town) else who could come and help out? Even just for a day or two at a time- that help can be so welcome.
I hs too, but only my 4yo and 5yo. You hs-ers with ginormous families ROCK
Oh! And your belly looks beautiful, Edmond must be comfy in there! (the little stinker )
So I have had some major laboring. I did check myself and know that there has been some progress (considerable.) Well, I ended up getting really shaky, dizzy, nauseated, and could not get enough air in so I told DH I really wanted to find out what was going on. Dealing with that on top of laboring was scaring me. We went in and lo and behold I get the nurse from HELL again! This is the 3rd of 4 times I get her.
This nurse is was so rude and confrontational (I was not surprised because she treats me like this every time!!!) that DH is about to rip her head off! He bit his tongue until we get out of the triage area. I burst out bawling... all the way to the exit of the hospital when I turn around and head right back up there. I asked who the nurse was. Find out her name and was asked if I wanted to talk to the head nurse. Still bawling I said yes. I went to the waiting area where the head nurse finds me. I explain all that had happened. I was given the Head nurses # and never have to deal with that nurse again.
Come to find out I have keytones in my urine - which is strange because I have been drinking like mad! I was confused. I had also taken my blood sugars before I went in because of how shaky I was feeling. My # was 81 which did not match with how I was feeling. Part of the reason I also went in. While I was being monitored I had 6 contractions which Nathan verified by putting his hands on my belly each time during and after to feel the difference and count them. Only 2 of the contractions appeared on the strip and did not appear as they should have. I never once got to speak to a dr. and was dismissed without being addressed on anything until I spoke to the head nurse. They did not even offer to check me (which I would not have minded with all the laboring I have been experiencing.)
So I am home cannot sleep due to reg. contractions and Tons of BM's. I do have a dr. visit tomorrow - so we will see what that brings us. I did tell the head nurse that I do not trust that hospital nor their evening staff whatsoever. She tried to reassure me that I would not have to deal with that again. Man - I so miss my hospitals in Utah! Nathan even offered to fly me there so I can go to the AF hospital to have my baby. Can I tell you how tempted I am!

I'm sorry our hospital is less than supportive. Is there a way you can get some additional labor support like a doula or montrice to help you speak up for when you go in there?
