So, I was having a lot of contractions on Thursday night and started timing them. They were about 2 minutes apart while I walked and 5 minutes apart while I was resting. They were 5 minutes apart for about 3 hours but weren't getting any stronger. I thought for sure that she had decided to come, but around 11:30 PM I fell asleep, waking only occasionally with a strong contraction. Then, the next thing I know it is morning and there are no more contractions. Bummer...
I had an appointment with my midwife on Friday morning and was excited to see if anything had changed at all. Well, I was disappointed to learn that not much had changed since last week. Other than the fact that she has dropped down further. I can breathe again and I no longer have horrible heartburn all the time. YAY! It was funny because last week I measured at 39 centimeters and this week she said she might be able to barely get 38.
I talked to her about an induction that she wanted to have on Wednesday, but we decided that I could wait a little while longer for her to come on her own. My midwife said that if I go past my due date then she will want to talk to me about induction again. Hopefully it won't come to that. Wish me luck!
