    I have a bit of pressure and cramping randomly and the occasional BH but nothing regular and no other indications of impending labor. I just hope baby isn't too late. My body is tired and I'm more than ready.

    I haven't even had that much....just insomnia. LOL. I also hope she isn't late, I am hoping for a VBAC, they will be much more nervous if I go late.

    Baby boy refuses to come out. I had bad pains Monday but then they stopped, and yesterday I had bad pains which stopped followed by just feeling really tired/weak/weird and mild rhythmic pains. When I went to my OB apt my OB thought I was in/going into labor, but then a couple hours later I felt better again. I've tried some of the ways to get labor moving, but no result. The soonest induction appointment the hospital has is for Saturday, so it looks like I'll be waiting a bit.

    I'm getting very uncomfortable this time around, and I'm worried that everything is okay. I just want the baby out. Having to keep coming into work isn't helping, either.

    Amarles- wow that's a long labor. 26 hours with no pain meds is amazing. you did an awesome job!

    My lo had a slight tongue tie too. She is able to latch and get milk but it us killing me! My pediatrician said it was fine if she's gaining weight. But I may get a second opinion because I can't be in pain lime this forever.

    You can do this Kate! It will all be worth it when he is in your arms. It will be a moment if complete joy and relief that he is just perfect.

    Josh was born at 3:42 am on 5/15/15! I started kind of feeling like I might be having contractions while at work on Thursday afternoon, so I left a little early since I just didn't feel great. In the evening we went to the hospital but I wasn't dilating well even though they had me walk the halls for an hour and my contractions were 2 min apart, but they decided to give me an epidural and then eventually broke my water. After that things went quickly; I took a nap for an hour and a half, woke up and felt a little pressure, and I was 10 cm! A couple kin of pushing and he was out. Everything seems good except that his bilirubin is a little high (we're just keeping an eye on it) and his latch is giving me a lot of blistering/creasing (both things also happened with my daughter). I'm so happy he's out! :)

    Oh, and he was 9 lb 6 oz, a full lb heavier than his sister and I never would have guessed!
