38 weeks 4 cm

Had my membranes stripped yesterday, lost my plug today. Dilated to almost a 4 (little past 3.5) he said. Hoping I go into labor soon I've always been induced so I'm new to all this going into labor on my own stuff. Any advice to get this moving along or things to watch for? Never contracted other than Braxton before being induced and having water broke.

Woot! Those are good signs but labor may still be a ways off. Do as much walking as you can. Even if it doesn't stimulate regular contractions, the contractions you do have can help move your body along.

Just let it happen on its own mamma. I had back labour 3x and never noticed losing my plug. Water did brake once while sleeping. Thought I was peeing in my sleep then while cleaning up I got a reaaaaaally sharp crap down there and wham - straight into back labour. Thought I was getting a cold though all 3x and stayed up all night tying up loose ends. This time, whatever doesn't get done, doesn't get done. Tho heck with it.

Had my baby at 3:32 am. Apparently my water broke in the shower at 9:30 and I didn't know. Made it to the hospital at 11 where they told me I was not in labor yet even tho I was having contractions 3-4 minutes apart for an hour and a half at that point. Got my epidural at 3 and she was out at 3:32

She was the smallest of my 3. Her brothers were 8lb 15.7oz at 40 weeks and 9lb 2 oz at 39. I figure if she'd have gone to 40 she would have beat them both lol. She did come out in only 4 pushes which was awesome!

And I have to say all you mamas who labor with no drugs have my utmost respect. I got to 7 with norco and something in my iv and thought I was going to die before they finally decided I was in labor and were able to do the epidural.
