i am having contractions 7-8 minutes apart and they don't go away when i change activity. i am also having bloody show! i had some brownish discharge after my MW appointment on wednesday and then some more the following morning. but it's back and this time it's more pinkish... so i'm thinking this is a good sign!

at my last appt, i was 4cm and he was at a 0 station. but my effacement wasn't anything to write home about. last night i inserted 4 EPO tablets before bed and maybe it did the trick.

send me some labor vibes!

thanks girls!

i didn't eat anything last night because i was feeling bad, but found myself starving this afternoon. i ate a BLT and now i feel like things aren't progressing anymore.

the contractions are still coming, just not getting stronger. i know this could be a long process, but what can i do to get them coming stronger or closer together? still about 7-8 minutes apart right now. and i am pretty comfortable through them.

I would definitely try to stay active! Maybe taking a nice walk would help. I hope this is it for you!

ugh, I'm sorry. I just spent all day with my friend yesterday trying to keep her contractions up and going. Every time we sat they would almost go away, walking and staying active they were coming steadily. She fell asleep late afternoon and they went away completely. I hope yours pick up soon! (((HUGS)))

KUP!!!

I'm sorry! I got really bummed the day I went into labor. Same thing but even more spread apart. But they never got closer or stronger until my water broke at 9pm that night.

Stay strong! It will happen! Get some good rest so when it really hits you will have energy!

You are NOT broken! It will happen! Hang in there, I know it's frustrating. You are so close! You should make an appointment to go do something. hehe I made an appointment to get my hair done because if I was going to be depressed and in pseudo labor than I at least wanted to look pretty. It worked! I didn't make it to my appointment and I had a baby soon after!
