    Phone finally let me make a new thread.

    Came to l&d for peace of mind, probably not in labor but def lost my plug, and had a bloody show. No contractions, but pretty painful cramps and back cramps that are starting to get worse/turn into contractions.

    Waited an hour in the waiting room before I got a room. Now hooked up and waiting to be seen.

    Apparently 15 babies delivered so far today.

    Praying mine will be among them!! But he's probably teasing mom again.

    Woohoo!!

    I just sent my husband a photo of my plug / bloody show. Poor thing it's lunch time here.

    Hope something happens for you tonight.

    I want my baby to wait a few more days. Lol

    Well that happened faster than I thought. Just got checked. Probably early labor but since my contractions aren't strong/consistent, I'm going home. Still only dilated to a 1. 80% effaced. Blah.

    That happened to me last time. At the last minute they said I should stay because my temperature was a little bit up...well she was out 3 hours later! If i had gone home she would probably have been born in the car.

    I'm sure your little man will be on his way soon. Get some rest, and keep us updated!

    Go home and have a shower, maybe that can help progress something for you. October 4th sounds like a good birthday :)

    Ohhhh... 80% effaced is good though! Dilating doesn't take as long as effacing does in my experience, shouldn't be long now mommy!

    I say do some squats and try to help lower the baby down to put more pressure on your cervix and help it out :) I think those definitely helped me during early labor with my last two.

    Good luck!

    I'm pretty ok with waiting a few days now after seeing how crazy the hospital was!!

    I'm still pretty uncomfortable today. Gonna go to work for a bit and then ill be trying some squats when I get home!!

    And, for the first time in idk how long, I only got up once to pee last night!!

    Yep its true that laboring at home is much more comfortable than the hospital. They make you do a lot of laying around sometimes and truly it just makes things worse. I need to walk and move, sit on a ball or something. I got impatient and over excited when labor started and ended ip there 12 hours before baby even came. This time I'm not going until I'm in tears.
