Yesterday it was really hot here and I told myself to increase the water intake (which I did).. I waited all day to go to Walmart and ended up going at around 7:00 pm. I wanted to bring dh or my oldest daughter to help me push the cart, unload groceries, etc.. but, neither one of them were available, so I ended up taking my two little ones. By the time I got home I was REALLY achy and there was ALOT of pressure. Dh made me a sandwich (didn't eat until 9pm) and then I took a bath. Started to feel better. As I lay in bed, I was having all sorts of shooting pains, contractions, etc.. that kept me awake until almost 2am. I finally fell asleep and I wake up this morning (after a couple more pee breaks) and nothing. How frustrating!! You keep telling yourself.. this is it... what do I need to pack, etc.. then you tell yourself... no- go to sleep this isn't it!! (again)..

Anyway- I bet some of you ladies can relate. I wonder if maybe I was a little dehydrated?

oh... but, I have a really painful hemorrhoid and I kept thinking- oh no!! I don't want to go into labor with this thing hurting so bad (I HAD to go to walmart to get some witch hazel pad which are helping immensely btw) I read that labor can make them worse.

I don't do a lot of walking- but, I bet if I really pushed myself I could really get things moving. I just don't want to completely wear myself out and then actually go into labor. kwim?

I have a dr. appt. It will probably be a waste of time and very uneventful. I'll kup.

I hear you being frustrated. I'm tired of bouncing on my frigging ball and walking.

I have absolutely no signs of labor, no contrax, no bloody show, no mucus plug, nothing.

I have some pressure from her being really low, its making walking difficult. Getting up after 15 minutes of sitting is miserable. This is the first time I have said this....but I am pretty much done. I really want her to come out now.

Contractions that lead no where are the worst! Update when you can after your appt! Hopefully you've made some progress

Think I might have a tiny bit of bloody show unless its from this dang hemirrhoid. Waiting for dr now.. Dont expect much. My reg. Dr. Is on vacation. Think I will go home and do my freezer meals and walk on treadmill.

Getting up after sitting is hard for me too. Though, I don't think my little guy is even that low yet.

appt. was uneventful as expected. I prepared myself for not liking this (male) dr. I thought I saw bad reviews about him on google. But, I actually like him. He had his ipad and actually asked me quite a few questions and manually felt my belly for position, commented on me losing a couple pounds and looked for swelling in my legs. ... my reg. dr. does not do that she only measured and checks the heartbeat and asks if I have questions. . I told him I was worried about going into labor with this hemorrhoid. He basically said we will worry about that when we come to it saying they have numbing stuff if I need it.

Not really having contractions, but still curious about the "bloody show".. I had two "spots" on my underwear and the bloody one was a little further back.. so could be hemorrhoid, idk- don't have anything when I wipe yet. Would love to have baby on 8/8... will keep ya'll posted, but won't get my hopes up too much.

I hear ya! I did some squats yesterday before going to Walmart, so I think that had an effect on what was going on.

I understand the frustration...I spent at least 2 hours bawling this morning, and the tears just keep coming on and off every time I think about it...still absolutely no progression, my due date was yesterday. I'm not even at a 1. No effacement. My doctor leaves on vacation Saturday...he said he fully expects me to still be pregnant on the 19th when he gets back...two more weeks of this...I don't think I can do this while retaining my sanity. I can't sleep, nothing tastes good, I don't want anyone to see me or the 20 pounds I've put on in the last 2 weeks.
And to top it all off, the sick kitten we rescued from a ditch this morning was euthanized by the shelter...they didn't even give her a chance to fight...I would have taken her home with me, but my maternity leave is unpaid, and I just couldn't afford to help her. That guilt doesn't help.

This is the most frustrating time. I have days where I can't get anything done cause the Braxton hicks are coming hard all day. Wraps right around into my back. Then they just taper off and I wake up frustrated. Although now that we figured out baby flipped during that last day of crazy cramping. Could be the flipping made it so painful? I don't know but I guess we are lucky not be have gone into labour without knowing baby is breech. Just sitting waiting to see specialist about flipping baby and a date for c-section if baby doesn't flip. ��

AWWWW... you need a BIG I went 2 weeks overdue with my first daughter, and had to be induced on New Year's Eve, so I know how you feel!!! I've gone overdue with 3 of my 4 children. One was induced early due to GD. I should completely expect to go overdue with this one too, but I'm too stubborn to accept it.

so sorry about the kitten.. there must have been something wrong with it? Why wouldn't they clean it up and adopt it out? Poor baby. You should have peace knowing it didn't die in the ditch.

Your doctor is not willing to do a membrane sweep????

Well, I managed to get 8 freezer meals done and no more bloody show! I am staying real active today but haven't gotten on the treadmill. Walking up and down the stairs doing laundry and cooking have been enough. No more bloody show or any other signs of progress yet. other than a few BH which is typical. I hesitate to do any more squats today since all that trouble yesterday.

The poor kitten was severely emaciated, severely anemic, severely dehydrated...the poor thing was on death's door...feral cats don't just walk up to people...it would have died out there, but it wanted to try to live, I just think they could have given it a chance...fluids, food, a heating blanket. I was a veterinary assistant for 4 years (until I couldn't afford to keep the job anymore...it and my other two jobs just couldn't pay the bills, had to go back to the factory)...will to live means so much! I should have brought her home with me...at least she could have died in a home instead on a cold, steel exam table...alone.

Doctor said he can't do membrane sweep because I'm not even to a 1, so he can't get in there to do anything. I'm just tired of driving 30 minutes one-way, done it everyday for all these ultrasounds and NSTs and cervical exams. Just frustrated...I know I shouldn't be, but I'm tired of this...gotten maybe 6 hours of sleep in the last two days. Normally have such a good sense of humor, now I feel like a whiny baby who doesn't deserve to have this kid...there's got to be someone who handles this better, that deserves it more than me, haha. Ugh, I feel like a child again myself. Almost 31 years old, and I feel like a wimp. I've wanted to be a mother for so long! Knowing how I should feel compared to how I actually do just ups the guilt and the shame and makes me feel even worse about the whole situation.

I hope you are feeling well, and things look bright and shiny. I haven't even had the desire to make any dinner for today, let alone prepare for the future...I think we have some condiments and some hot dogs in the fridge. Bleh.

Feeling the frustration too. Just wished the contractions would stop or continue and not stop. Stop playing games.

I feel somewhat similar. I am getting so sick of this and it is starting to remind me of last time, when I had a very difficult labor and ended up with a c-section, which I am terrified of happening again. Ugggg. I am 39 w 1 day now and had totally convinced myself I was going to have an earlier baby this time (went two weeks overdue last time). dr. says I am 4 1/2 cm, 50 % effaced. She did a membrane strip on monday and will do it again this monday. Booo. I was extremely irritable yesterday--I felt bad because I didn't do anything very fun with my son and just wanted to get the house ready, but didn't have much energy to actually do chores. Then I broke a sound machine I just bought and then a jar of pickles! Hopefully today is a better day. we are going to the fair, which will include tons of walking, so maybe that will help!

I've never had a c/s, to me that would be worse than induction.4 1/2 cm is good though! It doesn't seem like it would take much to further that along! sorry about your rough day. That stinks. Your brave to go to the fair. There's no way I could/would do it. Walking around walmart or the grocery store just wears me out! Hope you have a better day

UPDATE: Got all excited last night because I saw red blood and first test it appeared to be coming from my vagina. Second test, turns out it IS coming from my darn hemorrhoid. UGH the thing is so painful!!! So- total let down.
