Labor? If I could be so lucky!

So….I am 37 weeks and 4 days pregnant! This is quite the accomplishment for me since this pregnancy has been a whirlwind of doctor appointments, medications to stop preterm labor and lots of scares along the way! I prayed for weeks that I could just get this little one past 37 weeks! And now, here I am! The weekly injections and oral medication for preterm labor were stopped at 36 weeks…and every day since then, the contractions have increased!

Now don’t get me wrong, I am not wishing for the labor come any quicker, but for God’s sake if I am going to have contractions for hours at a time then PLEASE let it be because giving birth is in the near future!

I can never do anything quickly! It started 3 days ago…yes, 3 days! Between the hours of 10 pm and 3 am, my contractions pick up to around 7 minutes apart! Just when I am about to call the doctor, they quit! Normally this wouldn’t be an issue, but this momma is tired!!

Today I went in for a check up. I am dilated 2 cm! Yep, that’s it! 3 days of contractions and that’s it!  Looks like it’s going to be a long road!

So, here I sit….tick tock, tick tock….I patiently wait for the clock to hit 3 am so I can get a little rest! Until then, I will lay here and listen to the sweet sound of my husband sleeping soundly! Yes, I am jealous! 🙂 Good night all!!
