They sent you home at a 5?!?!?! That is considered active labor! I would head back to the hospital at that if you are contracting regularly.

another midwife appt today
 
I took my blood pressure today and it was still high and it was above the levels that my midwife wanted so I called her. I went in and they again are not too worried, but want me to go into labor really soon. So, they decided to check me again and do another stretch and sweep. It was the mother of all stretch and sweeps! They decided to manually dilate me more. With it done yesterday I went from barely a fingertip to a 2. Today I left stretched to a 5! I thought I was going to die! I am bleeding and cramping like I am on a regular period. They also sent me home with blue and black cohosh to take so I can get some stronger contractions to get me to efface more.

I had a rough night. My body seems to be confused. I have been getting good contractions. I was awake for 3 hours in the middle of the night not being able to sleep because of them. But they aren't regular.

I am sorry that you are struggling like this sweetie. Have you thought about getting some pitocin to jump start active labor?

I'm sorry that the contractions haven't been regular for you yet- crossing everything that your labor picks up and baby is here soon!

Since I am with a midwife only birth center practice they don't do pitocin inductions. I am okay with that. I don't work. DH is supportive of everything as well and does everything to make me comfortable.

If you were a 5 last night, I would at least get checked out again today. That kind of scares me that they would send you home dilated to a 5. I would be so scared of not making it back to the hospital.

I am not going to a hospital. I am going to a birth center. I am not concerned about it at all. Even if she is born in the car to the birth center, I am all good with that. Once my body decides to figure out what this labor thing is we are a go.
