I went in for my doctor's appointment today and was told I'm dilated 3cm and 60-70% effaced. Then he said the baby's in -3 station. Which means I've had no progress in two weeks. Ah well, she knows what she's doing, right? I thought for SURE I was having her on Easter because I had really painful contractions 2 minutes apart for like 3 hours...but my water didn't break and I could talk through them. Then I laid down and they stopped. Just stopped. I was so disappointed lol



Pointless post is pointless, but I thought I'd share my disappointment.

I didn't want her to come on Easter, but as I was contracting, I started becoming okay with it...and then I started to get excited...and then nothing lol

That's how I was with my son. It was such a letdown to end up being induced.

DS2 wasn't born on Easter...but this year it so happened that Easter fell on his birthday :x I ended up having his party Friday evening because all his friends didn't have school and his cousin was born the next day and they were having his 2nd birthday Saturday and then of course you have Easter Sunday and Ian's 4 birthday! It felt like a crazy weekend. I wonder if Easter will fall on his birthday again.

I was due April 3 but I ended up having her a week and a half early. I was the exact same as you and had contractions that would just stop. My water broke unexpectedly and I had her two hours later. So hang in there, you may be giving birth sooner than you think! :)
