Well after three days of contractions here I sit at 4-5cm and 60%effaced.  Everything just stopped.  Pls send me some labor vibes ladies.  Thanks!

3 days!!!! Are you able to sleep at all? Are you on pitocin?  What is the plan?  I was in labor with ds for 3 days and ended up with a c-section because I didn't progress past 4 cm but I was induced.


Poor thing! Hope things start moving quickly for you!  I'm impatient for my little one to get here and I'm not in labor!

Thanks ladies. I'm at home as I'm going for a home birth and the midwife I have is very much so a patient woman. BUT...I'm going nuts here. Thankfully, the contractions were moderate level and I have a high pain tolerance so I was able to cope. But I can't handle pitocin at all so going naturally. To me the pitocin and an epi go hand in hand...lol. I did see my backup OB and she said my water's bulging and should probably break soon so that's what I'm hoping for. Thanks for your support ladies.

I can't imagine!  I have contractions most evenings and they are driving me nuts--they aren't extremely painful I'm just tired of being pregnant and being tired and not able to do whatever I want to.  My OB said I just should be resting and enjoying these last days but even resting more the contractions still come every evening (not that I'm making any progress-cervix was closed on Weds).  I have 11 days to my c-section!

Absolutely nothing is happening now. Saw the midwife yesterday and she said we have 10 days. Great! :( She's confident something will happen soon. Me, on the other hand, googled the longest pregnancy and it''s 375 days. I'm sure I'll be famous soon for beating that record...lol. Good luck to all of you.
