Hi Ladies. I am on day 4 of prodromal labor today. Last night I woke up at 4am with a huge contraction that was very painful and in my back and was thinking oh please let this be it. I was too excited to sleep hoping it was real. I just had some more of the painless contractions. Then the cat came in with a mouse around 4:45am (still alive) and was playing with it. DH got up but didn't catch it but locked it into our entryway. Then I finally went back to sleep around 6am (DH was a snoring machine) and DD came in at 7am. I got her dressed and ready for preschool and DH took her, then I napped for a few hours. I emailed my acupuncturist last night and asked her if she would do an induction so I am trying that at 2pm today. I really hope it gets things going. It is 93 today, 97 tomorrow and 95 on Wednesday with high humidity and I just hope I am in the hospital in the a/c while this heat wave is going on. On the plus side I feel more crampy than usual today so I am very hopeful this induction will work.
Also just lost lots of mucus! So hopeful that things are happening.
