With my last labor my water broke and I didn't get contractions. After 10 hours or so I went in, they eventually gave me pitocin. Still not much happened. They finally checked me and there was a fore bag of water around her head. Once they popped that it was fast and furious labor.

I have been having lots of contractions since thanksgiving. I thought yay! My uterus will contract this time! Apparently not.

My water broke around 230 this morning. Still not much of anything yet. I really don't want a repeat of what happened last time. :(

My midwife suggested I go in around 11. Hope things pick up soon.

Stay home. As long as you aren't putting anything in your vagina you should be okay. The concern with PROM is prolapsed cord and risk of infection. If babe is engaged no need to worry about the cord and if you don't have VEs there is little risk of infection.

I tested positive for the strep b. So my midwife just called and wants me in now for antibiotics. :(

How long ago was that? Did you do anything to treat for it?

I would stay home til the 24 hour mark, NO internal exams, just do alot of walking and squatting.

You have an idiot midwife if she didnt tell you how to treat for group B at home!! All you need is to use certain soaps when bathing!! ARGH you have a medwife

Have you tried nipple stimulation to pick up labor. Same thing happened to me with my second, I know how you feel good luck.

I am 36 weeks and 4 days. Everything seems to be playing out like last time. It makes me sad. But as long as baby is healthy I will be happy.
