I spent most of my day with crampy contractions. They were very regular and nothing I did seemed to help ease them. I made sure I was hydrated, nope didn't help. I took 2 hot baths, nope didn't help. I put castor oil on my lower stomach and applied a hot towel.. did. not. help. They were being timed between 9-11 minutes. I didn't call my midwife because I figure if it was anything they would get closer together and if they got closer together I would have called her.

If my body is starting to prepare for an earlier labor thats great, but let me make it past 35 weeks! Closer to 37 preferably. Or hey, maybe close to my due date? I don't want to go over and honestly this time around unlike my 1st two, I have no idea what is going on.

With both boys i knew when they would be born. I just had that gut feeling. This time? I've got nothing!

So after yesterdays fun we know now we can't slack around and need to get our birth kit asap. I hope he stays in for a few more weeks just so I know everything is good.

I'm over this part of pregnancy haha. i wish we had a button we could press that would tell us how much more time we actually have left!

I completely understand. I am in early labor and I wish I knew if it was going to be today or next. That is the hardest part fir me, the surrender to realize we have no control over timing.

What a true statement. It was only when I vocalized surrendering my control that I got out of early labor with Kate. Seriously, it was weeks of prodomal labor, then an entire 18 hour stretch of early labor where I got to 5cm before it petering out.... I sobbed and cried with my midwife and my husband. Once I got over that, Kate was born the day after.

Good luck hun!!

I completely agree with you two. Letting go of the control on this is hard but has to be done. I like to be in charge/control. So yup, this part is the hard part.

Seems to keep going but nothing worth getting worked up about anymore. I think its just the whole false labor thing. You have timeable contractions but they don't get any closer together or more intense. So maybe something is going on and getting ready but I'm not holding my breath haha. My midwife appointment is on Tuesday so I'll bring it up to her then.
