Earlier today, the contractions that I have been having all week slowed down a bit. Then about two and a half hours ago... BAM! They picked back up and started actually getting painful for the first time. I haven't timed anything yet bc I don't want to jinx myself, but I did put my parents on alert for getting DD. It's getting closer and closer to bedtime, so I think I'm going to have them come get her soon. I'm feeling pretty confident that this could really be it, although I am CAUTIOUSLY optimistic given the way the week is going. I can feel a lot of the contractions in my back, which I guess I should given her position. I am thinking if the pain keeps increasing like it has over the last couple of hours, we will end up in L&D in a few more hours. And my favorite midwife that I REALLY want to deliver me is there tonight. Really hoping this is it! I will update later!

I think this is the real deal. They have gotten longer, stronger, and closer together. I called my midwife to check on when I should come in when they had been 4 mins apart and lasting about a minute for half an hour. She said to wait until I couldn't talk through them and told me that would probably happen after about an hour of that. I am slowly getting to that point. My mom came and took DD, last minute stuff is going in the bag, and the car is getting packed. I'm sure we will be heading out soon. I will update from there! Hoping to have good things to report in a few hours!

We were all set to go, DD at my mom's house, regular contractions with very real pain, consistently 4 mins apart, just waiting for them to get to the point I couldn't talk through them and then... they just started slowing until they stopped. Around 11, they were so infrequent, I decided to go to bed in the hopes that I would get a bit of rest and they would come back worse than before. They did... for about 5 contractions. Could just barely talk through those, thought we were back in business, and then more nothing. I barely slept and I am so discouraged. Going to get DD from my mom's house now to be there when she wakes up. I will have to take her to my ob appt today. I am exhausted and sore all over. This is so wretched. Desperately trying to keep that better perspective I got the other night, but it's getting really hard again. And to top it off, I missed my favorite midwife's last day in L&D for several days (there are 4 of them that rotate and she was on Tues & Thurs) and there is a dramatically increased chance that if I go today or over the weekend, I will have the one that I really don't like... Ugh. Babies are so uncooperative.

Hopefully they were at least really productive. Perhaps you will go to your appointment today and find out that you really dilated to like a 6 or 7.

My appointment today was SO frustrating. Not only were the contractions from yesterday not at all productive, the midwife I saw on Wed that I did not like apparently knows nothing b/c I am not progressed as much as she said I was. I saw the really good one today that I like and she told me I am 3 cm, 50-60% effaced, and the head is at a -2 station. (On Wed, the other one told me 3.5, 50%, and -1.) Also, I said the same thing today as I did on Wed about her position and pointed to where baby's back is, just like I did on Wed. On Wed, the chick said that there was nothing she could do to get her to turn. Today, I was immediately told that she is in the best position she could possibly be in. She is, in fact, in exactly the right position for easiest birth, left occipital anterior, which means her back is toward my left side, but slanted to the front, and 90% of babies are born from that position. Apparently, the midwife I saw on Wed doesn't know anything about anterior/posterior positions. And she is the one who will be in the hospital all weekend if I go into real labor tomorrow or Sunday. Ugh! I like the person who will be there until 7am tomorrow, and my favorite will be there on Tuesday. I like the person who will be there on Mon, but that is MIL's bday and if this baby is born then, she will never have a bday of her own b/c MIL will make it all about her and insist on spending the day visiting us every year from here on out. Really hoping for any day but Monday. If nothing happens by next Friday, she will sweep my membranes and she thinks that will be enough to get things going. If not, she said I can go in and do pitocin to get me to something like 5cm and then turn it off. She thinks once I get that far, they won't need it. It's up to me if I want to do that or not. At first, I said no, but after thinking it over, this baby is coming by next Friday, no matter what. I would just rather it be sooner than later.
