This is so frustrating. I've been contracting hard and painfully every 4-6 minutes since about 8pm...so about 7 hours now. I've made no progress since I've been here and they told me if I still haven't when they check me in a few that they will send me home. Ughhh...these contractions hurt like f**k...why aren't they doing anything?!

Well going home is better than being pushed on pitocin or something. I know it sucks, I was stalled at 6 for 18 hours but couldn't leave because my water had broken. I hope you get some progress!

With both my first and my 3rd I had false labor for 3 weeks before I was induced. And sometimes it felt so much like real labor it was horrible.



Feeling like your in labor, contracting every 2-3 minutes for hours on end, and not having any change is every pregnant woman's worst nightmare.



I hated it.

Well she just came in and stretched me by hand to a 3...so they're going to keep me. I'm getting the epidural...I went into this not wanting it but I just can't handle this...expecially with how slow things are moving.

Oh lol. I was on in labor with my son. I sat stalled at 6 for freakin ever. I had nothing better to do lol



Thank you! She really does, but a mini version lol. He was 9.7 at birth and 8.12 at almost 24 hours. She was 7.4 at birth and now at 36 hours is 6.15. I tried to put the little bloomers on that went with her newborn dress today. Dude. looked like a tent on her haha.

Awe! Girls are so much fun to dress up lol especially newborns lol. My son was 6 lbs 14.9 oz and I think he was around 6 lbs 10 oz at 24 hours. My daughter was 9 lbs 4.7 oz and 8 lbs 15 oz at 24 hours. I'm so curious how much this one will weigh.

Haha same! My daughter was a big baby! So not fair. My son fit in some premie clothes. I hope I have another little one lol. It's definitely nice to have a newborn not a two month old at birth. At least its not as bad as some ladies who have like 11 lb babies that would really suck:(
