*update at bottom*OB today Labor vibes!

Well I have my OB appointment this morning at 11:15. After Friday I was SURE that we would have the baby by now but nope.

I guess he has decided to stay in....maybe because DD just started walking and so he's scared of his big sister. LOL

Well I'm going to drink my Raspberry leaf Tea, I have heard this works to induce labor, then off to the appointment.

I have still been having contractions so HOPEFULLY I am more dilated, I was 3cm and 80% on Friday.

So asking for some labor vibes.

Re: OB today Labor vibes!

Okay so we are back from the OB.

No baby as of yet. I am 4cm now though and well thinned and about 80-85% or so he said.

I asked if this baby will be as big as DD was, she was 8lbs 7oz, and he said yes definately could be bigger. "OH NO!" LOL

I also asked if he will come as quick as she did then, because I want to go all natural again and I figure the quicker the better to keep me sticking to it. LOL

Welll.....he said that he will come QUICKER!

QUICKER WHAT?

How is that possible DD was only 2 hours start to finish.

He guesstimated that this baby will be "probably" 1-1.5 hours.

Oh my gosh is all I have to say. So I am figuring out what to do when I do go into labor, I have to get to the hospital QUICK, but I don't drive no license and my DH isn't taking time off before the baby until the week of my due date.

So we talked and I guess I call DH right away then depending on how I "think" I am doing I wait for him to come home to take me to the hospital or call 911 right away.

SO I am REALLY hoping that this baby comes this weekend when both of our families are here. LOL

Anyway he said that it's good that I don't have any more leaking, my water didn't break I guess juts had a little leak not sure he didn't say but it was amniotic fluid that was coming out last Friday at the hospital they did the swab test on it.

Contractions are fine nothing regular so he said they are just braxton hicks basically.

Looks like no baby right now but I am drinking my Raspberry Leaf tea all day.

Just thought I would update.

Oh ya I hope this baby's wool actually fits him now that I know he will most likely be as big as DD.

I think that the fast labor would on one hand be a blessing and the other be a nightmare

Oh my gosh I know.

With DD it was BAM water broke and right away my contractions were 2 mins apart not even.

Then I went from 3cm to 8 in a matter of 20-30 mins.

It was intense really intense esp. for a first baby. Then I had the nurses telling me to "walk for a half an hour" because it's my first baby and first babys always take long.

It was really that they didn't have a bed ready for me so they had no where to put me.

Anyway I am going for all natural no matter how much pain I have. I figure I had so much pain with DD that if I can handle that I can do it again.

Re: *update at bottom*OB today Labor vibes!

one thing though is that they "say" second and third labors, etc are faster than your first. BUT, that is not always true.

you better tie that phone to your hip or something.
