    I had a night of contractions that fizzled out on Wed night and they started back up on Thursday night but got stronger by early Friday and she was born a few hours later. Hope yours come back soon and you have a baby!

    How are you feeling today?

    I've had a few random contractions throughout the day. A couple of them were pretty strong, but then nothing after. I was so sure I'd have the baby by now.

    BTW, you need to change your ticker

    Emily, time to move out! I hope it isn't as hot and muggy where your family lives. The M/W center must be air conditioned. I bet Cherish can't wait to meet you!

    Just checking in. Still pg! I did a little research, and I think I may have a tight pelvic floor. I found a couple things on spinning babies that I tried this morning. They supposedly work much more effectively if you are in labor, but I thought I'd try just to see what would happen. I felt an immediate difference (looseness). I haven't had any contractions since then, so I don't know if they will be any more effective than they have been over the last 3 days, but I will let you know.

    If there's a lot of fluid allowing her roam around too much, you might try binding your belly once you get her into a good position. Just take something long like a Moby Wrap or fold up a twin bedsheet lengthwise, and wrap it tightly around your belly to help keep her from shifting out of place. You'll want at least two times around your belly, tight but not so much you get light-headed or lose circulation in your legs. If she's floating up, wrap around your upper belly; if your belly is sagging and letting her drift outward, then wrap around the bottom to help lift & support it.

    Hey sweetie! I know how frustrating it can be to keep thinking that today might be the day. I attended a birth on Thurs night (my moving day!!) after a week of on and off labor. But the good news was the birth was quick and relatively easy. In your case, I hope like Stacey said that you get some warning time so you can make the necessary arrangements and get to the birth center on time to settle in and have a nice birth!
    Hang in there!!!

    Thanks, Ladies for all the support. I'm glad to have a lodge. My birth board pretty much fizzled out. There are only a few of us left, and there haven't been any new posts in days. It's sad.

    I'm still hanging in there. Caught between wanting her to come sooner vs. later and not wanting her to come too quickly. Our life is pretty hectic right now too. All the kids are home from school except Isaiah, who has 1/2 day summer school. We had to spend all afternoon yesterday getting his feeding tube replaced, and then it came out this morning, so we are going to have to go back today At least Children's Hospital is only a few blocks from the m/w center, so maybe I could get 2 birds with one stone

    The techniques I tried yesterday didn't start labor, but they did help the hip pain, and it felt like my pelvis was more open afterward. I figured it couldn't hurt, and maybe it will help labor to go more easily when and if ( ) it ever happens.
