I'm probably going to stop updating until the baby gets here because I'm feeling really demoralized and frustrated and don't want to spend all my time complaining about bouts of false labor (more of which I had in the middle of the night last night). So... if I seem quiet, it's probably not because of labor, because apparently THAT WILL NEVER HAPPEN... it's because I just think I need to step away and be inside my own head.

this is a totally classic second time mama thing! the birth i went to yesterday, it was 3 days. one last year was 4 days. she was GBS positive and we never got antibiotics into her because every time we went over there she wasn't actually in active labor and then finally she was and wham, there was baby.

if it does end up going fast at the end, talk to your baby and let her know what's happening and that it's fast but she's safe. those babies seem to get freaked out and pissed off when labor goes from easy going and slow to WHAM.

I understand the need to withdraw, it's normal at this stage. And it's SO frustrating to have long bouts of pre-labour contractions (BTDT). Please know that I'm here, reading, thinking of you, even though I rarely comment. Can't wait to hear the good news about baby's safe arrival!

hi -- just added you recently, i think i found you through being friends with debok and thehils? anyway, wanted to send good strong labor vibes to you. i went to 42 weeks and ended up with a gentle induction before the (magical amazing) birth happened. it was so intensely frustrating to wait out that time and try everything to make it come faster and have nothing work! i spent a lot of time crying, writing, trying to understand and just *be* with myself without judgment. it's hard to wait. here's hoping your patience and time to yourself are rewarded very very soon.

42 weeks, that sounds like hell but I know it does happen! Thanks -- and I added you back :).

might be time to seduce the huz, my friend. at the very least, it will get your mind off of labor! at best, it will ripen the cervix and give you some good contractions to work with!

Remember my end of July entries? No baby yet, no baby yet. And I thought I'd go early. So much for *that* thought. :p Sending good vibes for a swift, soon, and minimally painful labor!
