yay! and boo!

well i'm 4 cm and 70% effaced! and since being checked yesterday im losing my plug with lots of bloody show. but no baby yet and i have a stupid chest cold. so im taking a zpack to try and kick it.mw offereed to do a sweep but i felt so bad that i told her no. im kinda kicking myself but at the same time i was exhausted and needed a good nights sleep. and i going to try and get labor started tomorrow evening if it doesnt start itself. my mw was really shocked that i was progressed so far already so hopefully i can avoid a pre e induc and get my water birth!

Labor started for me 12 hours after I started losing my plug, so you may be holding your baby really soon! It was probably a good idea to opt for sleep, also! It wasn't until I stopped stressing and overthinking and went to sleep that labor started for me :/

A rested mama often makes for a labouring mama! Fingers crossed for you Abby! Did you try the castor oil pack?

whoo-hoo! Hopefully that baby is here by now! I was planning on taking castor oil the morning I went into labor, haha! My body must have known how much I really didn't want to take it!
