Re: Ruby Mamas Chat: July 10-17

1 cm and cervix is still pretty thick. Which doesn't surprise me. I don't have false labor and when I start, I go fast, so I'm still in the "any day now but probably not" mode.

On another note, I got to have my GBS test redone. Because of our crazy insurance I had to have a nurse at my GP do it, and she messed it up, so my OB redid it today. I love my OB though, the nice thing is that she said if I did happen to go into labor before the results come back, I'd be treated as negative since I have no risk factors.

Yikes! All the reviews I hear are mixed! Some it really helped...mostly.those who had inconsistant contractions to begin with, others HATED it!

Try nipple stimulation. That is what got me going with ds2 and I had him in 7 hrs and 3 pushes. It was awesome. I am starting to pump tonight as I am scheduled to be induced by breaking my water tomorrow night. However, I am 3 cm already as of yesterday.

Good Luck!

I'm here.. 38wks 6 days. Having sporadic ctx, nothing crazy. I've resigned myself to waiting another 2-3 wks... It does have to happen, I'm just so darn excited to meet this lo.

Tawnya, Evangeline is gorgeous! Congrats again mama.

Everyone else, hang in there!

My midwife appt went well, baby went from loa to roa though, hopefully he/she will resume good position by birth time. Baby is up and floating again lol after having dropped some last week. This little one doesn't know what it wants but everything looks good, after tomorrows appointment to end our homeschool year I am so ready to have baby. Thursday would be a great day we'll see!

Re: Ruby Mamas Chat: July 10-17

Woke up a few times during the night to pretty severe cramping. Definitely lost my plug since the last of it was red and now am having blood every time I pee then wipe. No steady contractions yet, but the consistent show has me hopeful that they'll pick up soon. I went into labor with DS on my due date, so maybe I am overly hopeful about today.

Re: Ruby Mamas Chat: July 10-17

Well i was having contractions every 15min for most of the day...but the last couple hours they went down to every 5 minutes...occasionally will space to like 7min. They aren't very painful...more like a BH and once in a while it will hurt my lower tummy. I took a TBL of castor oil. My body has been weird, i had diarrhea last week, then constipated the last couple days and gassy(wow, sorry ladies!) so maybe this will "flush me out" Dont want to poop on baby!

Praying these contractions get somewhere, I'm ready to meet baby!!!
