another VERY long night

After yet another long night of regular increasing contractions, I'm still pregnant. This is the 4th time this has happened and the 2nd time they were so close together (as little as 2 minutes apart). I'm 3cm and 50% effaced at my last appointment and baby is measuring plenty big (about a week a head of where she should be). I'm frustrated and getting depressed. Because of our wonderful free health care system here they will do nothing, unless there is a serious medical reason such as BP issues or PreE. My earliest possible induction date is March 11th at night, 8 days past my EDD, and 18 days away.

I'm already at my breaking point, contractions daily, sometimes rather painful just not 'regular' and what appears to be false labor every 4 or 5 days. I no longer sleep and have no appetite. Sad

Catnip tea has been staving off contractions that don't mean it for me this time around. It might be worth a go Sad

You may want to contact a mw for a consult in the mean time to ask about other ways to encourage things one way or the other. I know how frustrating this is!

Oh wow. I know how you feel. For two nights I've been miserable and can't sleep. Sometimes I just wake up for no reason and just look around lol. I don't know why.

I'm going to try to take a nap for at least an hour. I'm totally going to bribe my 5 y/o to lay down with me with the ipad. The others still have to take a nap so.......bribing away.
