Just back from my appt 39wks & 7 days...Maybe some progress but so confused?

Why are contractions so confusing??????????
Is 2 cm dilated and 50-60% effaced not really that far along?

Well I thought I was having contractions last night.... consistent contractions about 5 min apart for 3hrs. They were extremely intense period like cramps that would then also go into my back. Went to L& D and they monitored the contractions...but of course they ended up getting further apart to every 10 mins...and not all were even registering. (which they say back labor may not show up) so they sent me home after a few hrs.

Went home at 5 am, then to my OBGYn for a 9am appt this morning. I am 2 cm dilated and about 50-60% effaced. The Doctor also stripped my membranes to move things along. Let's hope that works. I still feel contractions about 10-15 mins apart.

Otherwise, he wants to schedule induction for next Monday.

Let's hope I go into labor before then!!!!!!!!!Chat Icon Chat Icon Chat Icon


Thanks for listening to me ramble

It sounds like something is going on! And 2 cm and 50-60% effaced is certainly progress!
I'm completely clueless about contractions. I've had cramping, but no pattern whatsoever. But it does sound like you're on your way!

Re: Just back from my appt 39wks & 7 days...Maybe some progress but so confused?

With my first I had a 38 week appt, I was like 90% effaced and 3cm dilated. 4 days later I swore I was in labor. Contractions every 5 minutes lasting 1-2 minutes each. I went to my NST (non stress test) and they saw the contractions but were a little further apart. I went to the bathroom and my water broke (around 10am Monday). DS was born 3:25am Tuesday.

I'd say you are moving right along and could be at the "any moment" point!! Chat Icon Chat Icon Chat Icon

Still having contractions. A little stronger than last night and about 7 mins apart. Maybe the Dr stripping my membranes worked!! Just have to wait I guess to see if they get more intense and more frequent.

Hope this is it!

My doctor told me when you have real contractions you will not be able to look someone in the eyes and he was right!

Bags are all ready to go!!! I think I got them ready 2 months ago..Chat Icon Chat Icon

You never know ...you could be any day now. You have had some progress at your appts...so things could happen with this Full moon.

I may need a text buddy. Lisa was mine and she just texted me right now- she is going to the hospital to be induced!!!! So excited for her...what a perfect B-day Gift!!!!

seems like we had a similar night Chat Icon I got home at 3 am and went back at 9 to get checked again.

At least you're having contractions and there's an end in sight Chat Icon I'm sure with the internals it will speed up the process
