My official due date is april 5th. I've been cramping the past couple days. Im having small contractions right now. Hoping this is the start of labor and not braxton hicks lol

After bouncing on a ball all day, eating spicy food, and drinking pineapple juice I'm cramping. So now I'm going to walk around Wal-Mart for a few hours, take an evening primrose oil tablet, and eat fresh pineapple whilst doing so. Im. Going. To. Do. This. Lol

Unsuccessful -,- I will prevail tomorrow. I have had mucus discharge with blood in it so I'm really hoping that's my bloody show. Cross your fingers for me ladies.

Hopefully it's soon! I want my little man to wait a bit I have a cold and want that gone before he arrives.

Man the hatefulness at the hospital yesterday was fierce lol. Tuesday I measured at 2 cm dilation. Yesterday I woke up at 5 am to awful back pain and cramping. It progressively transitioned into contractions that were about 1 min long and 4 mins apart. My ob wanted me to come in at 5 pm to get checked. They were able to see the contractions on the monitor and feel them. I had dilated to a very loose 3 almost a 4. 2 hours later I was still contracting but still the same dilation. So they ended up giving me a Percocet for the pain and 2 sleeping pills and said to come back today if I'm contracting still. I'm cramping but nothing like yesterday. They told me if I was 39 weeks they would have kept me and just sped things up -,- I have like 4 days left until I'm 39 weeks. Hate. Ful. Ness.

That's frustrating! I've still only had mild contractions that aren't consistent. I'm thinking of taking some castor oil tonight and I'll be 39 weeks tomorrow so hopefully that gets him to come soon.
