Seriously cannot believe I'm still pg

On Monday afternoon my contractions were becoming so frequent and wouldn't slow down with walking and hydrating. They weren't painful at all... and didn't come with back pain and cramping.... but they were getting longer and more often so I was sure it was going to happen. Then it stopped and I went to bed.

Yesterday there was not too much going on in the morning. At my DR appt she said I was "3cm.... but actually closer to 4". She wouldn't strip my membranes b/c I'm GBS positive. Sad But scheduled an induction for Tue 12/11 and said that she would be "very surprised" if I made it to that appointment.

Last night I was having crampy contractions, but nothing I could time. Decided to go ahead and try to go to bed at 10ish.... might as well rest up for the big event. Now this baby has always been most active at bedtime, don't know what it is, but that's always when I get the most movement. The baby was moving like CRAZY! Seriously, I was worried that it was flipping to breach it was so much movement. And with it I was having lots of cervical pain and cramping. I was convinced that this would be it. But eventually I fell asleep and slept through the night.

UGH!!! I can't believe it. This is the worst! (although I was thrilled that at least this pain is doing something... close to 4!! Lol

aw man! I was just thinking about you this morning so I checked in to see if you had that lil one yet! Glad you are progressing though. I think you'll have that baby before Tuesday too. Smile Good luck and hang in there!

Aw, it's so frustrating thinking "this is it" and then having things stop. But, how fantastic that you were almost a 4 at your appointment! I know it feels like a thousand years from now, but the 11th isn't too far off but I too would be surprised if you make it to your induction. Each contraction/cervix pain is a step in the right direction and less work your body has to do later. Hang in there!

Go baby, GO! I agree that at least 'almost 4' is something. I've never had a check and been anything so I'd be jumping for joy. Lots of *fun time* tonight with hubby maybe?? Wink

That sounds horrible... .but not as bad as still being pregnant. I seriously suggested it to DH last night and he wanted no parts. Sad

As I sit hear praying to go into labor it just gives me time to speculate about the labor and what it will be like. Not helpful thoughts. My latest panic is that the reason I'm not continuing to progress is that the head is too big to fit through my pelvis and put pressure on my cervix. I say that because depending on how I'm tilted when I sit I can feel the head against my pelvic bone. Argh.

aww I'm sorry. Sad Don't let panic creep into your thoughts. Your LO is just taking his/her sweet time to come when they are good and ready. Hang in there just a little while longer. You've got this!!!
