Labor? When? A.C.B Due August 9 (girl); Ontario 13 posts
12th Aug '13

So im 2 days over due...
last tuesday i was 4cm dilated at my doc app.
last night i kept having strong twinges in the middle of my lower abdomen they would last for about 5 seconds and come back every 10 seconds and that lasted for about an hour and when i went to the bathroom the discharge was like a brownish pink colour... which i had already had a week ago a day before my docs app. im getting really anxious now when am i going to go into labor... this is my second pregnancy btw.. with my first my water broke so there was no questions, my next app isnt until wednesday if baby doesnt come by then but i really need to know right now how dilated i am...what if ive been sitting here at like 7 cm with no contractions and no water breakage.. lol is that even possible? if you were in my position what would you do? Go to the hospital and get them to check you sooner worst case you waste a couple hours they send you home and nothing has changed..or just wait it out until wednesday to be checked by ob unless baby decides to come tonight or tomorrow ... i feel like im stuck ... unable to do anything cause im just sitting around and waiting...



btw
ive had sex
walked
nipple stimulation
ate a whole pineapple ( read that helps lol )
bounced on the corner of my bed
ate spicy food
walked
walked
walked



When am i going to have this baby already !!!




Sorry .. kind of a rant .

Lol...I always say pregnancy would be so much easier if the moment you got pregnant, a stamp alpeared on your belly that says "Hi! I'm a boy/girl! I will arrive on MM/DD/YY at HH:MM AM/PM. You should name me _______. See ya then!

I doubt you would be sitting at home at 7cm. With my second I labored at home with mild contractions that contunued to get stronger. We finally went in when I could no longer talk through them. I was 6cm. But I was 4-5cm when my water broke with my 3rd child and was not contracting. Baby will come when it is ready. Just keep moving and keep busy.

Sorry hun, no one can tell you over the internet. You could go into labor in 5 mins or it could be another week. I doubt your already 7cm dilated.... but your "twinges" dont sound like even early labor. Good luck!

Yeah, my second pregnancy was much more uncomfortable than my first, so I can relate to your discomfort! Fortunately, I went into labor at 38 weeks. I would've died if I went overdue! Best of luck to you!

You sound just like me, lol. Yesterday was my due date, with my first pregnancy my water broke and my next appointment is Wednesday too. I wish I had advice but I think sometimes you're just doomed to play the waiting game and have no idea of when things will finally really happen.

it really sucks lol im finding it hard to tell the difference between pains from BH or contractions or if its just from the baby moving lol i feel like a first timer haha but really this pregnancy is totally different .. with my first i was only 2 cm dilated at my last appointment before she was born so i wasnt sitting around waiting i just woke up one morning and leaked all over the floor lol this time since she told me almost a week ago i was 4 cm ive been thinking everyday is the day and every pain i feel i question where it came from.. i feel like im getting bad anxiety and almost depressed each day that goes on with no baby
