My mid wife checked me today, Im 38 weeks and 2 days, 3 cm dialated and 80% effaced, but baby is still riding high at -3. had contractions every 5 minutes or so for an hour after my appt but now they are hours apart. so... wondering if i have to stop having sex, taking baths etc?? also, is the discharge supposed to be a little yellowy? it doesn't smell and isn't clumpy and i have no other symptoms (no itchiness etc)
also, should i be sleeping with a towel now?

  • Baths are fine, regardless (hence, water births), just make sure your tub is nice and clean. Sex is fine unless your water has broken. It might help move things along, too. The yellowy discharge could be normal, but I'd ask your midwife just to be sure. Sleeping with a towel won't do you much good, but you can keep one nearby just in case. Good luck! :)

  • Relax. Stay calm. And if you are going natural, Please don't let them induce labor. I was 41 weeks and had to be induced. They didn't tell me that would bring on the mother of all things holy cramps!!!
