Just wondering if anyone is making baby progress. I have been dilated to 1cm both times they have done a cervix check. I was really hoping that all the contractions I have been having were making more progress than that. Thought it might be fun to follow eachothers progress =)
I am dialated to 3 now.... 70-80% effaced. I started out dialated to a 1 for a while, had tons of contractions, thought it would progress more, and nothing. Then I was in the hospital 3 times last week for labor where I thought it was starting. Painful contractions for hours at a time, and only dialating to 2-3. They gave me morphine for the pain, and then everything stopped. I'm still having contractions but things just aren't progressing. I'm getting discouraged, and I'm so ready for this baby! I'll be 37 weeks tomorrow, so hopefully next time this happens they will help me along and maybe break my water or give me pitocin??
Nothing yet for me...I am only 34 weeks, but I went into labor at 29 weeks and my cervix was very soft at that time. I have been having contractions 2-3 minutes apart on a daily basis since then, but nothing has changed. It's still early, but at the same time I feel like I've been sitting around waiting for something to happen for a really long time. I keep getting the shooting pains down there and cramping during contractions, but it's not doing anything. I am supposed to stay on the meds for my contractions until 36 weeks, but I am not really following the bed rest anymore. I'm just getting a little anxious now that the end is so near!
Yeah I keep having contractions too but its such a bummer to know there is no progress from them. For some reason I thought this little one might come early but getting discouraged about that idea now. When they did an ultrasound yesterday her weight measured at 6 pounds 9 ounces which is plenty big enough in my opinion =). I can't wait til we all have our little ones
I saw your journal entry about your appointment and I was amazed how big she is already! If I get to 37 weeks we'll do another ultrasound because at 28 weeks our little man was measuring 16 days ahead. If we do get that far and he's measuring big I'm hoping we can discuss inducing rather than c-section. With my daughter she was measuring big and they wanted to talk c-section and I was freaked out. I hope you can get those contractions going and they start doing something. I think once I hit 35 weeks this weekend I'm going to start getting a lot more active and see if that helps at all. I guess just a little bit of progress would make me feel better because at this point I'm afraid we tried so hard to keep him in that he's not going to want to come out!!
im 3-4cm already and this morning my plug came away, ive been having a show for weeks on and off and they said that was ok, but now im queitly confident that things are moving along nicely, im soooo ready for this baby now its been a long and hard pregnancy for me. These past few days i have had contractions on and off and sometimes for hours at an time, ive been so restless too its not been me...can't wait for us all to meet our babies and show off our piks xx
I know it's just an old wives tale, but tomorrow's a full moon so may that will get things going for some. With my daughter I went into labor the day after a full moon. I'll keep my fingers crossed for those of you that are getting close!!
