Still in labor, getting closer and more powerful. Just took some homeopathic meds to help move things along some because I've been in labor since 11pm last night. I'm still in a great mood though and still feel great about our decision to UC. I feel truly blessed today, my mom, ,my sister, my husbad, 2 daughters and friends have been amazing. I have been treated like a queen today and it almost brings me to tears. How lucky am I to be rubbed and petted here by those I love most. Keep praying for us.
1:49 Saturday afternoon~ Still in active labor, I allowed my friend who is a student midwife and acting as a doula to check me a few times because it is taking so long, I am 10cm but he not decending properly. We are thinking it's military presention and his head may be cocked a little to the side. So anyway, he and I are both still doing good. I am feeling somewhat discouraged that he has decended so little in 8 hours..maybe an inch or so and still not past my pubic bone. please pray and send us good vibes I really really need them.
I am very upset at this point, my friend allowed me to know she had enough experence to guess what I was close to. She told me she was a student and that she had done it before and she might not be right on the moeny but she'd be close enough... Well she wasn't I broke down about 9pm and went to get checked by the hospital because something didn't feel right, and it wasn't. I am not in labor and my cervix was not only not dialted but still postier, she never even reached my cervix. The pains I am having are so severe that even with the shot of demeral/sleeping meds I Am still crying and passing clots. They never even registered as cxt on the machine. I'm just at a loss as to what is going on. I am so discouraged, upset and tired right now that I am not sure of my own judgment right now. Even with the shot the most sleep I have had is 3 hours since about friday about midnight.

Thank you all for your prayers and vibes, I am in much better spirits today and still trudging along. The pains are still 10 minutes apart and I have been rocking and moaning even hollering my way through every one of them. I have also been sleeping most of the time in between. I feel that last night when the midwife checked me she said as soon as she touched my cervix it popped open from 0 to one ( she promised she didn't stretch it ) so I am hoping that that action did trigger labor to come on, I feel that today these pains are a little more productive today then yesterday but I am not sure. What matters most right now is that I don't feel broken or beatdown like I did last night..
Thank You Ainamama! You were such an encouragement and I needed that
As of right now it's 8:18 on Sunday night, I spoke with Cindy early about possible prodromal labor, I decided to go ahead and try and stop if it is was with the muscle relaxers the midwife gave me. I notriced that it slowed down some but not for long. That was at 4-5ish I think. Well the cxt's are now back and full force. The worst is because they are all in my back whenever one starts I have to move into a better position and that makes it about 10 worse. What might have been bareable becomes enogh to make me cry. I feel like the worlds biggest baby not to mention a huge failure.
