    LOL, I'm ready for you to have her, too!

    Are you sure she's in a good position? A lot of times the start-and-stop thing is because baby isn't in a good position. Check www.spinningbabies.com If so, then have you tried the belly binding when the contractions start? Your uterus might just need a little support to get things started.

    As far as I can tell, she is in a good position. Head is engaged, but still pretty high. Her back is usually in the front left. Her head was not engaged when I was having regular contractions every 10 minutes.

    just read that mercury is in retrograde until the 20th... a dear MW friend of mine (who attended DD's birth) feels very strongly that she's seen a lot of women who should be ready to give birth have stalled labors until mercury gets back in line... just sharing!

    Interesting! The next time it happens is 41 weeks for me, so I certainly hope baby has come out by then!

    Still here. Yesterday, I had contractions every 5 minutes for 12 hours, and they were stronger than last time, but didn't do a whole lot. I went to the m/w to get checked, and was still high, fairly thick, an 1-2 cm. So frustrated.

    Ugh...long prelabor is such a drag on your patience, energy, and emotions! You don't have a ticker...remind me where you are at this point?

    I didn't have room for a ticker without taking out something else. My due date is today (7/17). My DH stayed home from work today. We are both really nervous about him being so far away. With all this practice labor, we are afraid that when the real thing comes, it will be fast. My DS2 came in about 1 1/2 hours from first contraction to last push. DS3 took longer, because he was OP, so I had 6 hours of labor, with 2 of them being pushing. If he had been OA, like this one, I think it would have been way faster.

    Happy due date! That history would make me very nervous too...I had to drag DD1 out into this world kicking and screaming at 41+1 and 24+ hours of labor so the concept of being nervous about a baby falling out on a moment's notice is very foreign to me

    Hope she comes and ends the suspense for you soon!

    Ugh, I'm sorry you're dealing with that. You're obviously concerned about Isaiah's care and your DH getting there in time, and baby is in a good position, so I wonder if maybe your mind is messing with your body? If Mercury getting lined up doesn't work, then maybe Hypnobabies' "Come OUT baby!" script will? You can download it for $16.95.
