I'm 3 1/2 cm dilated. Cervix at 2cm thick. But soft? Dr stripped my membranes. Told me i could have some spotting and cramping, but to call her if my contractions are every 8 minutes or if my water breaks. Baby head down. Not fully engaged, but dr could feel the bag of water and her head right there.

Been home for about an hour or so and i have been cramping. My boss (a midwife) told me to keep hydrated and try to get as much rest today/tonight as possible. (And to take a tylenol pm)
Very little spotting.

Hoping for more progress. I really feel like it will be tonight or tomorrow morning. The contractions i have had yesterday and this morning before my appointment were so much more intense than i've had so far. And now i'm having more of them. Will keep you updated if things change. The doctor didn't say for sure, but made i seem like i am going to go in before monday.

For the past 2 1/2 hours been having contractions between 6 and 12 minutes apart. Started spotting a bit. Feeling pressure down there. Its gonna be tonight or tomorrow morning. Gonna wait until they get a bit closer, then going in to l&d. It doesn't seem real.

On my way back home. They said still 3 1/2 cm. Had big contractions 5 minutes apart but because no cervical change and i didn't want pain meds, i'm going labor at home until they get to 2-3 mins apart.

Calling in tomorrow from work, and if no baby tomorrow i'm working this weekend, saturday and sunday. Who knows.

Good luck! You are getting closer and closer! Sorry it can all be so frustrating. I labored at home for 24+ with my first and when I went in was 4cm. You are almost there already, so hopefully you will go and be admitted soon.
