Took all the kids to school today. They were all excited to show off their baby brother. Now me and baby are going to Target. I need some shirts for sure. And a few other things that I want to look to get and just can't send DH. So I'm nursing in the parking lot right now before we go in... But I have to pee!!!

Re: May Mama Weekly Chat 5/7-5/13

Water broke at 5:30 this morning, admitted to the hospital at 6:30 am, dilated to 5-6cm, 90% effaced, -1 station, but cervix is still posterior. It's now 10:00 and we are still waiting for the contractions to really pick up. They were nice and strong for awhile, 5-8 min apart, but they seem to have backed off. The sucky part is since I'm a VBAC I can't get up and walk around to encourage them. Oh well, for now we wait. (P.S. Today is my due date!)

Just say you have to pee, a lot...then you can move more lol! Try sitting up in the bed or if you can, standing and rocking beside the bed or on a birth ball. (I'm assuming you can't walk bc they want continuos monitoring)

My other 3 have come at/after their EDD's so i'm also not counting on an earlier arrival. I DO however have an appointment on wednesday (I'm due Saturday), with the chiro at 10:15, then midwife at 11 to strip membranes so MAYBE it might work since it's just a few days earlier. I'm not going to stress it though, i know that the baby WILL come, and it WILL be within the next 2 weeks. (I am 39w2d today)

Congrats mama! ELV to you! Can you try some nipple stimulation while nobody's looking to help pick things up? My water also broke on my due date, so strange!
