I am 38 weeks and 6 days and I am starting to hate my body. I have lost my mucus plug now 3 weeks ago, been dilated 3cm and 70% effaced for 3 weeks now, and I have been having extreme braxton hicks contractions for over a month, I cannot sleep anymore and haven't barely been able to eat in 3 days! I have tried everything, from walking, excercising, yoga, sex, bowling, cleaning even got so desperate i scrubbed the floors on my hands and knees. I've tried showers and baths and i've even tried pinapple, and nothing. My doctor has been telling me for 2 weeks now, any day! I don't think i'll see you back next week! I highly doubt you'll make it to 40 weeks! All the things i guess you'd want to hear, but then i'm getting so discouraged because there's been no progress.. I am EXHAUSTED, and i am in so much pain, and i am beyond ready, and beyond over this.. I cannot do this for another minute, let alone another month... ahhhhh!
