I no longer believe in contractions

I have been having TONS of bloody show since yesterday morning. (TMI, sorry.) I've also been contracting every 6 minutes since yesterday around 4 p.m. They refuse to get closer together. Gr! I no longer believe in them. I will go in to L&D when she falls out, I guess.

She's coming, Mama..don't you worry! Some babies just take a little longer to decide for sure.

One good thing about these prolonged labors--you get to stay home and do your own thing, without being messed with (if you're going for a hosp birth). She's probably doing a nice gradual job of opening up your cervix, too.

Good luck!

Re: I no longer believe in contractions

if its your first it happens. my first took 23 1/2 hrs from start to finish and I ended up delvering in the car. my contractions never got consitent! this is #4 for me and I have been haveing the pains since 2 am but nothing to make me call midwife and get everyone ready. which is odd cause my 2nd only took 10hrs and third only 4. I was hopeing this one would be even shorter. Anyways just wanted to share my stories Due 4-7-08

This is my second. I spent the day in L&D yesterday, but all the contractions did was move my cervix anterior. *sigh*

Re: I no longer believe in contractions

Hey, moving your cervix anterior is one of the six ways to progress! Way to go!

I am with you. With my secondborn, I had contractions that were stronger than braxton-hicks for 3 weeks before she was born. Fortunately my midwife had warned me that there's more prelabor with the second (etc).

Believe them when they get stronger, longer, and closer together. Hopefully you won't have to wait as long as I did! But once the change happened, she was here in less than 6 hours (that's less than 1/4 the time of my firstborn).
