Re: So Frustrated!! Prodromal labor..so close but so far away
Sending you hugs! My dd is 2 1/2 months old now and I had prodromal labor for 8 days with her. I thought I was in labor and spent a day in the mat ward with hard long contractions that were 3 mins apart. They finally lessened to 10 mins apart and I was sent home (I was 36 weeks 4 days and they wanted to stop labor, but that was another story) They continued getting more intense at night being 3-5 mins apart and day time 15-20 minutes apart. When my water finally broke in bed ealry one morning I went quick and had her 2 1/2 hours later, in the back of my doulas SUV on the way to the hospital. I did wait at home for over an hour before heading to the hospital....I was a VBAC. You can make it mama, just try and rest as you can and know baby will arrive when he/she is ready.
SAHM and soon to be homeschooling mama to Nathaniel (5) and Isabel, my VBAC baby born May 4, 2010 in the back of an SUV!
