I have finally progressed past 3cm and 60%. Now...I am sitting at 4cm and 80%. My labors have NEVER drug out like this before. I am lucky to get 3 hours of sleep a night, and darn it...it's not because of contractions. My nerves are a wreck and I can't sit still. I am 9 days before my EDD, my youngest was my latest born and that was 8 days before my EDD. This ending period is SO long. I had an appt yesterday and now I don't go back again until next Thursday. That long stretch is going to drive me nuts if something doesn't happen. I still could possibly have almost 4 weeks left as we won't induce until 42 weeks.

You're getting so close to the end! Try to relax - I know it's easier said than done, but stress can prevent labor from fully starting

You are making progress! Your body will take care of it soon, I'm sure. Maybe the full moon will help you this weekend! (At least that's what I am hoping for me!)

Thank you .h00dihoo.this. for my beautiful siggy!

In a way it's good you're dilating now - less to do when labor really kicks in! The waiting and not knowing is hard.

You are so close! I hope it happens by this weekend for you.

I think I am the only weirdo around here that is not ready yet.
I think the fact that I have not had any cervical checks has made the last part easier on me.
