Why???

Why won't this baby come out?! 3 days of contractions, 5 minutes apart for most of those 3 days. I'm still only 3cm and 70% effaced. Hopefully tomorrow I'll be a few more cm!

Re: Why???

aw, poor mama! That is so frustrating. I understand - I was in labour (2-3min apart for hours at a time) for 6 days before my last babe showed up! I just started ignoring the labour & doing everything I could to help her out - aquafit, stairs at the mall, fast-walking for hours at a time...

hang in there!

Re: Why???

That happened to me. Careful, because when labor hits really hard you may not know it!

Thanks ladies! Had a regular check up earlier and I was still only 3 cm....
I guess when DS takes a nap I'll start deep cleaning and see if that helps! Haha!

Scrub your bathtub really well, and your floors;-)

I was bent over hauling laundry from the washer to the dryer, ignoring the contractions, when suddenly I started crying due to the pain. Two hours later I had a baby in arms!

good luck, mama!

Re: Why???

Pre-labour is so hard, isn't it? Mentally, emotionally, and physically exhausting. But, the good news is, usually the real thing goes pretty quickly once it actually starts. That baby is coming soon!
All the best!
