    Sorry to hear about the Bell's Palsy--that doesn't sound fun at all! I think you are getting very close! Maybe 3rd L&D trip will be the charm!

    I'm so sorry to hear you are dealing with Bell's Palsy! I hope it doesn't last too long. You'll have your LO in no time.

    Well, my face is still broke... thats kinda a bummer. I called work today to let them know that I'm on medical leave now, and my manager said they had my shifts covered and to let them know when I have the baby cuz they are all excited So looks like my job is safe, but I may have to cut back on my maternity leave because I don't want to put us in the poorhouse by not working for 8 or 10 weeks.

    Woke up last night with some nasty contractions, every 10 mins then every 8 then every 6. That lasted an hour, hour and a halfish. Then I woke up 3 hours later. I was so mad!! I'm tired of this false labor crap! I've been having the same contractions on and off all day. These ones hurt though, so they aren't like the BHs I've had for the last couple months. I'm sure he isn't coming any time soon though, I think he is way too comfortable in there.

    So for now, I'm just trying all the natural induction routes. RRL tea, fresh pineapple, walking, sitting on my birthing ball, hopefully DTD later (cross your fingers for me!). All I want to do is get this baby out... I was already pretty miserable... now that this Bell's Palsy has shown up I've lost the little tolerance I had left. I almost told the nurses at the hospital to call my doc in to induce me. Dunno how much more patience I have in me... but I'm doing my best. I know he is supposed to show up when he is ready, but man... its hard to keep thinking that with all this stuff going on.

    Now, I am officially convinced that this little man hates me I had contractions every 5 - 7 mins last night for almost 3 full hours. DH kept asking if we should go to the hospital, or call my OB, and I kept saying lets just give it some more time. So I went to lay down since I was so uncomfortable, and low ad behold... everything stopped like 20 mins later. SO I have decided that he is never coming out, and he is just going to continue to torture me as long as he can.... Like mama like son

    I had prodromal labor like you're having, too. Although you're not in labor yet, contractions like that do usually do something to start to change the cervix, but progress is very slow until labor starts. I hope he comes soon for you!

    So, more prodromal labor... 6 or 7 days of it now, I've given up counting. Yesterday, DH's mom calls to talk to him and get an update on everything. So I guess he was explaining to her about the birthing center, and how we are having a NCB. Apparently he is very excited about us having a NCB (finally) and he is totally on board. Where did this husband come from? -I'm not complaining I Promise!

    So now that I am totally over being pregnant, ready to give in and just be induced, DH is telling me that its only a couple more days or weeks at most. I was so adamant at the beginning that I wouldn't be induced that he is really reaffirming that with me now. He keeps reminding me that deep down inside, I know I don't want to be induced and that I just need to be patient. He has been soo supportive over the last week of contractions and labor pains. Hes been getting me anything I need, taking showers with me to help me relax, helping keep the house clean. Its like a whole new husband. It amazing how quickly a person can grow up.... But its a good amazement.

    Boy I hope this little guy shows up soon!

    Absolutely nothing! I thought I would be early... now I think he will be in there 2 more weeks. I had some promising contractions / feelings this morning... which all stopped. I'm sort of torn... because I want the Bells Palsy to be gone before he is born, but I don't want to be pregnant anymore...

    I think I'd prefer to not be pregnant more though... I have a doctors appt tomorrow... I am hoping beyond hope that I am dilated to like 60... I need some progress

    60, huh? Is that metric?

    I feel for ya, I really do. I'm weeks and weeks away and already done with being pregnant. I don't have that last-month huge-ness, contractions, weekly appts., etc., let alone any unique issues to contend with.

    I wish I could just give you a big hug and make all the yucky parts go away. However, the end is in sight. And in the end, you won't remember much of these last days as they relate to the discomfort and frustration. Shoot, one day you might even miss being pregnant.
