I just need a little encouragment today. I am 36 and pregnant with my 3rd child. Needless to say, its a whole new ball game being pregnant at 36 verses 21 and 23. I have had soooo many pains and quirks that I just dont remember having when I was younger. I had a sch at 13 weeks and lasted till around 24 weeks. Then the pains in my legaments started. I have NEVER had anything that hurts like that. And now I find that I have an extremely prosterior cervix.
I have been in early labor for about the past week and a half. But because my cervix is sooo prosterior, the contractions are not "producing" like they did with my first 2. My last labor lasted for maybe 15 min. Literally, I wasn't even 100% certain that I was in labor but went to the hospital anyway, and I had my baby like 15 min later. The doctor didn't even get there in time to deliver. Anyway, long story short, I kind of expected the same thing this time. but I am fully effaced and 5 cm for over a week. I am sooo exhausted! My poory hubby even made me go to the doctor because i have been sooo lathargic. Doctor says my body is working sooooo hard to go into full blown labor, that it is just exhausting me but he doesn't want to induce until i hit the 39 week mark.
Dont get me wrong, I want my baby to have as long as she needs in me, but I am soooooo miserable. I am probably just wanting to see her precious little face and hold her. I guess i am just venting or maybe i am just hormonal

I'm 38 weeks today and for the past week I have been getting pains and tightening, went to the hospital a week ago today and they said my cervix wasn't dilated so they couldn't do anything. She's been pushing down quite a bit the past few days & the pain sometimes takes my breath away.
I know how you're feeling as I haven't been able to sleep or do much at all, my whole pregnancy has been fairly easy but this past week has been a nightmare! I want her to stay in until she's ready to arrive but my god would I be relieved to be able to sit on the sofa and get comfy!
