Holy crapola, either do something or go away!

I'm 38+1 weeks today. Had a doctor's appointment and found that I'm 2cm and somewhat thinned. Eh, oh well. Didn't expect much since my previous twonwere a week late. But the doctor did a membrane sweep to maybe help things along. Smh, I should have said no. I've been having cramping and braxton Hicks for a couple of weeks now, but since this morning its been non stop. They don't get worse, but won't let up either. Every few minutes. I'm so tired, it needs to either pick up and progress or just go away.

Ugh, that's the worst. I'd rather labor come on suddenly than have it drag out :( hope you get some productive labor soon!

It might help to try time positions and/or things like pumping or orgasm.
If they don't help pretty quickly, then I'd try to rest and then try some more party tricks later.

I'm on my feet pretty much all day. I want to walk more but I'm afraid of exhausting myself lol

I'm not too worried about it. I'm thinking after two late comers the chances of this one coming early are slim to none. Thankfully the contractions and cramping have slowed down a lot today

I'm hoping too. Just finished up the last of the baby shopping this afternoon, so I'm ready to go. Now I just need her to decide She's ready

Ugh, that sucks. I definitely would never do a membrane sweep. But I hope things get moving soon, or go away!
