Just had my appointment. Numbers haven't changed. She just said he was slightly more dilated, lower and cervix softer. So slow progress. She probably just told me that to make me feel better :P Midwife is on call wed-sat this week. I'd LOVE for her to be at the birth, so I am crossing my fingers for later this week.

Hi ladies,
Just a curiosity...
I was very nauseous yesterday and even got slightly sick while napping. I ate bland foods and the only time I didn't feel sick is while I was eating.
Felt fine this morning, but after lunch (which I kept VERY bland) I laid down (about an hour after eating) again and within 20 minutes I was up with puke in my throat (and that's sleeping quite propped up). It's been 2 more hours and I still feel just sick. I munched on some whole grain cereal and that's the only time I feel fine. I obviously shouldn't just keep eating non-stop, but I feel so sicky!
I was working remotely with my boss today and she said she was very nauseous when she went into labor and each contraction caused her to dry heave. Does not sound pleasant, but if the nausea means labor is coming, I won't worry about it. Any ideas? I don't have diarrhea, but have gone #2 3 times today, which is weird. Baby is moving as normal, although movements are muted a bit as she can't have much room in there!

melann- In my experience, I didn't have nausea until after contractions started, but that doesn't mean anything. I'm not an expert I find that I get nauseous lately if I eat too much and then sleep shortly after. It seems better for me to not have anything for a while before I nap and I do better. I know you waited an hour, but maybe wait longer? Or snack more and have less meals? Are you taking anything for heartburn? Zantac before sleeping might help with the acid. Hope it gets better!

@Acorn, I chew tums when I wake up with the acid. I have been snacking on bland things throughout the day. For lunch I had half a baked potato (no sour cream) and some squash and some milk. Yesterday it had been hours since I'd eaten and I still had the problem. It's the fact that it's not going away now and I've been up for 2.5 hours that has me thinking it's more than just laying down. Should be thinking about making supper for me and DH, but I have fish thawed, and the idea of cooking it is revolting right now
My belly has been contracted most of the day I feel like. Sometimes it hurts, most of the time it's just rock hard. Menstrual cramps continue as well, but I guess I'm just hoping that some little part of this is productive.

I feel horrible. Just came back from the docs. From Station 3/5 at 36 weeks, I'm only 2/5 today. That's exactly 2 weeks after. Boo for such slow progress! What's worse is I tested positive for that Strep-B thingy. Totally crushed me. I don't think I'll ever be able to have that all-natural birth after all. I was literally crying all the way home till now. I feel such a failure. With my luck, I'll probably end up labouring for days only to have an emergency C-section in the end. Somehow, I'm tempted to just opt for the elective C-section and this agony now.
Sorry for being such a Debbie Downer, feeling so crappy!

Lian - 2/5 is good it is progress at least I was 4/5 at 32 week, 4/5 at 34 week and my 38 week appointment still 4/5 - that is depressing
Sorry about the Strep B thing i hope it doesn't stop you having the natural birth you are after

Lian, I'm Strep B + too, doc promised that even though I'll need antibiotics every four hours during labor, that I won't be strapped to an IV. He said that they will just use a cannula and can administer the dose in about 15 minutes every four hours.

Feeling more cramps this morning. Had some contractions all the way to the bottom of my bump last night, but those fizzled out. Weather advisory here today due to snow, so maybe baby will decide that's just the challenge she needed! A 1-14-14 birthday would be fun.

Just a quick one as I am very, very tired. Our little man was born yesterday morning at 1.49am after only 2 hours of active labour weighing 9lbs 4oz. We are already home, but need some rest and sleep, so more info within the next few days.

Lots of labour dust to everyone still waiting....
