Quoting Freckleface Watermelon:" Hopefully it lets up! Have you taken anything? When I started taking benadryl at nighttime everything changed!"


No I haven't taken anything.

Quoting Freckleface Watermelon:" Doc checked me today and I'm 1 cm (same as last week) and still thick. But holy ouch to her checking.....she ... [snip!] ... went to the chiro this morning and having my back popped was glorious. Wow! And a shot from my mat session over the weekend:"


Jealous of your 1cm!!! lol I'm praying for progress on Monday!



I would've originally seen them today at 38 weeks but apparently to them Black Friday is a holiday? Lame.



If there is no progress Monday I don't think I'll be able to be induced at 39 weeks... which is next Friday. I will be so upset.

Hope you ladies all had a fantastic Thanksgiving!!!



I had my first set of actual time able contractions this morning... DURING & after sex! lol They were coming 10 minutes apart. But then they stopped :( I was starting to get excited thinking this weekend could be it.... but nope!

Good luck! She might not be as big as Landon was. Everything will go fine whenever she comes....and your doc knows your history so hopefully they can prevent whatever may happen.



A lot of people are off work today. Not bc of black friday but they kind of tie it to Thanksgiving. My dad works for the city and he's had the past few days off as well.

I have been having contractions for the last couple days- I'm really hoping she at least sticks it out until 39 weeks. I'm not ready for her just yet :) go on Monday to get checked & I believe a weight ultrasound.

Have fun at your ultrasound!!!

My appointment is Monday as well. I'll be 38w3d so I'm crossing my fingers for some dilation and thinning going on!! & an induction date would be nice, too!!
I hope she holds out for ya a little bit longer since you're still only 35 weeks!! <3 Good luck mama.

I had zero contractions until the morning I went into labor with my first. Seems to be the same this time around.



The first 4-5 hours I was beginning labor were just menstrual cramp feelings. Didn't even know they were contractions! lol

Really? I had contractions with Landon, time able ones too, but the closest they got were 20 minutes apart. Other than that it was pitocin related from my induction. So it's hard telling! I get the menstrual cramp feelings a lot.

Yeah. I was going to the hospital for my induction (I was a 4, fully effaced, and leaking water). I was sitting at the table eating breakfast and was just like..."Man, this is really weird. I feel like I'm about to start my period again!" Then realized it happened every 5-6 minutes. At the hospital we learned they were contractions lol!



They had me lay down for a couple hours, then gave me pitocin, broke my water and he was out an hour later!

I had contractions from the day before I was fully in labor. One every 30 mins or so, maybe an hour in between a couple. Then they started getting more regular about 1am and lasted every 20 mins til about 2or 3pm and went from there. I went to the hospital about 9pm when they were 3-4 mins apart and I was almost 6cm...my midwife said I can't wait like that this time.
