I've been contracting all week with increasing frequency, and obviously I'm sick of it, but the hospital told me it could be another week or possibly even two before the baby comes.
Well, when we left the hospital SO was visibly upset. He said he had just really pictured himself holding his first baby for fathers day. The doctor had mentioned castor oil and walking as safe ways to increase contraction strength (which would help me dilate) and SO asked me to take it tomorrow, so that he could have his fathers day baby. I can't decide how I feel about this - I understand how he feels, I'm tired of contracting, and the baby looks good to go. But at the same time, there's no NEED to rush things.
