I have been having contractions since last week to only minor avail.  If you were a reader back when I had Little G, than you know that I  had some Braxton-hicks contractions but nothing crazy and finally had to be induced 4 days after his due date due to low fluids.  The night before I was induced, I did have a few contractions and I ended up 2cm dilated by the time I went in.

Last Thursday, I had about an hour of contractions 10-12 minutes apart and the next day when I had my OB appointment, I was 1-2cm dilated.  So in my head, I've been waiting for this baby to show up.  I would love to go into labor naturally instead of being pushed like I was with Little G...but since I have never gone into labor naturally, I have no idea what is normal and what isn't.  

Over the weekend, I could have sworn I was going to have a baby on Sunday...which clearly didn't happen.  I was having contractions all day in 30 minute intervals and at night they ramped up to every 10 minutes, and then I went to bed and they stopped.

Yesterday, I barely had any.

This morning, I've had them every 30 minutes or so.

I decided to stop thinking about it...except that I can't.  I mean, Little G is at daycare, I'm home and have minimal projects left on my to-do list that I continue to procrastinate over. And instead I'm just biding my time until baby decides to show up.  Which is killing me.  Ok...not killing me...but totally driving me nuts.

Anyway, figured I would write this up to keep you all posted if you were so inclined to care and to have it for my reference for when I eventually get to write down a birth story!!  Hope that's soon!


  1. Keeping you in my prayers that you will deliver soon!

  2. Keeping you in my prayers that baby makes her debut soon!
