Contractions are getting closer and stronger, but I've only dilated another half centimeter. /: The contractions really hurt and they won't give me meds yet, she says not until 4 cm. Does all this sound normal? I'm worried and the doctor has only come in a couple times, it's mostly nurses.

Sounds textbook to me but if you are concerned, talk to one of the nurses. But it all sounds exactly like it should be

Best of luck

Sounds normal. And I prefer the company of nurses to doctors myself personally. I found walking and staying upright made a huge difference in my comfort level. Good luck Barbara!

In other, less exciting news, Ev and I had a play date with some other moms from my Facebook birth month group and it was spectacular. Not only did we have a cry-free drive there, but she was great the whole time and slept on the drive home too! And I have some moms to hang out with who have babies the same age!

Oh and we finally got her into a chiropractor and had her adjusted. Interestingly enough, one area that is compressed is the section of the spine where the nerves related to her stomach are located. So hopefully this helps her reflux!

That's great.!!!

I'll tell ya... Connecting with a group of moms with children around the same age was priceless to me. It provided me a priceless amount of support and incredible friendships that almost 6 years later have grown and developed into not only some of my dearest friends but some of Hannahs closest friends. It is really an amazing resource for new moms. To connect with women who are goin through similar experiences and as the kids grow will continue to be able to relate to what you are experiencing... Priceless

Baby groups are awesome! I'm in one here and they've helped me with so much. Wish we didn't all live so far and we could have a Chaz moms meetup, lol


They moved me into an overnight room with a bed and anime reclining chair for D. My parents are in their way. They are giving me Demerol every two hours, which makes it hurt less but not go away completely. By the time the two hours are up, I'm in a good bit of pain. The doctor says I'm having slow onset labor. At 6 AM if I haven't gotten to active labor, they will induce me. My biggest problem now is that the Demerol isn't doing much... ):

8 cm dilated and they broke my water. There was merconium in it but I'm trying not to worry. I can't feel anything from the waist down now, they gave me an epidural a couple hours ago.

In the home stretch if you aren't done already Hopefully all goes just swimmingly and the meconium has no effect.
