The main reason for this blog….
Week 38 started like this:
And then on day four…the shiz got real:
13:00 : To try to “naturally” induce labour, account the gestational diabetes, my OB does a “stretch & strip”…it does nothing most of the time but doesn’t hurt to try.
23:00 : all the Braxton Hicks I usually get in the evenings have gotten more uncomfortable and omg, there’s bloody show. I was in early stages of labor.
23:30 : We go to bed, or rather, Skywalker does, because the contractions have started to actually hurt so I’m out of bed and pacing and timing the waves.
03:00 : Contractions are 5 min apart and lasts 1 min each…equivalent to 6-8 slow yoga style breaths. Skywalker wakes and notices I’m not in bed.
04:00 : Contractions are 4 min apart, we call the OB group who then confirms we could head to the hospital
04:30 : At the hospital waiting for assessment.
