I'm 39+2 and am so so ready to have this baby already. Iv had cramping and BH for just over a month now, and all day today iv been having contractions about 10-12mins apart and last anywhere from a minute to around 90 seconds.
While they are getting rather painful, they aren't getting any closer together Saw my doctor today for my 39wk check up, and she said to wait until they are 5mins apart, and strong enough that I can't talk through them.
I'm kinda annoyed that she didn't do an internal to see if there was any dilation or if I was thinning or not....I'd like to hope that these contractions are doing something down there.
Any suggestions apart from the usual on how I can get things moving along?
'Well this is my first pregnancy and I'm not due until almost a month after you :/ but walking should help, try stretching. Basically get active, I read online that if you massage your ankles and feet there are certain pressure points that can get it started. I don't know how true that it is but I guess worth a shot esp when you sound like your right around the corner from going in to L&D (: GOOD LUCK hope something works for you!
