Re: My uterus is doing stuff maybe

That's similar to my thinking.
Good luck, I am also being induced this Friday for the same reason. I hear the contractions are more intense and I'm hoping I won't be in labor for too long. With my two daughters I gave birth within a few hours of feeling contractions and I just pushed twice with my oldest and once with my second (born at 31 weeks).

Hey mama! I had DS at 35 weeks because of Cholestasis. I started going into labor the night before my c-section. Mine was pretty advanced and my liver enzymes were crazy high and my blood pressure was up, but without all the complications, my dr. said I could have had a vbac. They just couldn't wait for me to do it naturally, but said cholestasis sometimes causes your body to go into labor. Good luck! I bet you are ready to get rid of the itchies!

Re: My uterus is doing stuff maybe

I had the crampy contractions for 2 or 3 days with DS2.. I think I started Friday night, and my water broke on Monday afternoon. I had no idea I was in the early stages of labor (was induced with DS1), but.. I was.

With DS3, I didn't have as much notice. I woke up in the midle of then night to contractions. They were painful enough that I couldn't go back to sleep. About the time I was getting ready to time them, my water broke.

So.. yeah,.. sounds to me like your body is getting reved up!
Good luck mama!

God bless!

So excited for you!! Sounds like your body is doing great work!
Both of my babies popped out on their own terms (and a "little" help from me) because of a threat of induction.

Baby #1 - My water broke at 34 weeks, I sat in a hospital bed for 7 days, and was scheduled to be induced on day 8. DD worked her way out before they could get any drugs in me - doctor rushed into the room just in time!

Baby #2 - This little guy was in no rush to be early. At 8 days past my due date I still wasn't dilated at all. I was scheduled to go into the hospital on a Sunday night for cervical "ripening" (ummm...whatever that is...) then be induced on Monday morning. Once again, my body (and baby) had plans of their own as I had contractions Saturday night that didn't go away on Sunday. I went to the hospital at 1:30pm, and he popped out at 3:51pm (again without drugs, and without induction).

Hang in there! You will do great (even if you do need to be induced...it's great that your body is getting ready)

Can't wait to hear your story

I'm very crampy and having regular contractions, still 10 minutes apart but getting stronger. My cervidil has been in only 5 hours. Praying I can get this done before it's time for pitocin.

I had cholestasis my last two pregnancies and both babies came of their own accord before I could be induced.

Good luck!!
