Friday I spent 4 hours in L&D overnight with contractions. My doctor thought for sure that was going to be it... but my cervix would not budge. It was closed tight. She sent me home to drink water and walk and said she would see me back over the weekend for sure. Nope... at my doctor's appointment yesterday I was only 1 cm dilated. She was shocked because of the intensity of my contractions on Friday. I'm scheduled to be induced on August 30th and scheduled to get the gel on my cervix on Monday. I was a crying moping mess yesterday because I really wanted her to induce this week, not next. For one thing, I'm physically and emotionally miserable. Her head is so far down that I can barely walk without intense pain. She put me name at the top of the induction list so if anyone scheduled ahead of me gives birth early, I'll get their slot. I've got contractions every day, just no progress on the cervix from hell.
I'm tired, cranky, achy... and very much enjoying taking it all out on my ex.
