I'm two days past my due date today and had an appointment with my midwife. She did my first cervical check and as expected I'm 3cm dilated and 65% effaced. She was extra pokey during my exam - I was gripping the side of the table and trying not to cry out, it hurt that much. Afterwards I was really crampy and had a little bloody show. Over the course of this afternoon, I've started having some painful contractions. I started timing them about 40 minutes ago and they're space about 4 minutes apart, lasting 30-60 seconds. My midwife said to page her when they're 4 minutes apart, 1 minute long, for an hour...so I'm getting pretty close to that! So, I guess the exam really got things going, like I was hoping it would.

Anyways, if it keeps up (fingers crossed it doesn't stop!) then I'll page my midwife an be off to the hospital. I'll keep you updated as I can!

UPDATE: Finn decided he was happy to stay put for now. After several hours of hard and fast contractions, they started to slow down, and eventually stopped. I'm tired and upset and just want this to be over.

Thanks for all your kind wishes ladies - I'll need them if I ever do actually go into labour.

Ahh hon. This has to be an emotional roller coaster for you. I know that you are already several days past your due date. How long will your practitioner let you go. I know that some say 41 weeks is the cut off. Were you able to dilate any additional with the contractions you had? Hopefully they got you a little further so that you have a quicker delivery. Rooting that today is your day.

Thank you, yes - it is emotional. I'm just really tired and uncomfortable, and my mom is visiting from Arizona and only gets to come here once a year...I'm afraid she's going to have to leave before the baby comes and I feel like I really need her right now. I just can't believe the contractions stopped like that. I was so sure it was happening - I mean, 2 hours of painful contractions 4 minutes apart? It's like I went to bed Christmas Eve, and then woke up in the morning and my parents told me that we were going to push Christmas back another couple of days. That's what this feels like.

The cut-off for me is 42 weeks but my midwife asked me if I want to be induced sooner than that. The earliest they'll induce is 41+1, which is next Tuesday. I said yes, but now I'm starting to reconsider. My mom will have already gone home by that point, so what's the rush? If they could induce today, I'd say yes for sure.

I don't know for certain, but I think I dilated more from the contractions - I certainly felt a lot of pinchy-shooting pain through my cervix while having contractions. The good news is that I'm several more centimetres dilated right now than I was when I went into labour with Fiona, and that took nearly 3 days. So it's looking like this labour will be considerably shorter, thank goodness. I am still having noticeable contractions this morning, but they're not painful at all, so I don't feel like they're getting me anywhere. I'm hoping that my body is gearing up for round 2 today.

HUGE hugs!!! Believe me, I completely understand how you feel! My first two babies came at 42 weeks and my third at 10 days past due. I will keep you in my thoughts and hope true labor comes on real soon.
