Holden is a Quitter

Ugh, so I have had contractions at least every 6 mins for the last 36 hours. I really thought last night was going to be THE NIGHT. They were painful, very painful, and really looked like they were going somewhere, but as you can tell from the title of this blog post, they did not.

I'm still pregnant. MUCH to my dismay.

I'm at my wits end, and so so so sore from contracting so much over the last few days.

I'm exhausted since I didn't sleep much the last few days. At least if I had a newborn I would be able to cuddle with him in the middle of the night, instead of tossing and turning in pain, accompanied by the occasional trip to the bathroom to puke.

I went into the Dr yesterday just to get checked out when the contractions were every 4 mins. I had dilated another cm (4 now) and about 90% effaced. I didn't see my Dr and since I was only 36w6d she couldn't do anything to help me out of the contraction marathon.

My 37 week appointment with MY Dr (not the on call) is tomorrow.  I'm still contracting this morning but they are not nearly as regular as they were yesterday.

During contraction-fest yesterday, we decided to go walk around the Zoo to help get things going. My sister-in-law went with me to take care of London and I moaned and waddled my way around the zoo, stopping for the occasional photo.

I hope Holden shows up soon and you can finally meet your little boy! I can't imagine being in labor for days...yuck! You are doing a great job, keep it up mama!

Holden is what we like to call a jump refusal. The exit is wide open, but the kid refuses to actually exit the airplane.

Bless your heart! I remember how the contractions wouldn't quit for weeks before we went in to deliver. Hugs.

Wow - that sounds agonising! I hope by now, or shortly hereafter little Holden decides to man up and face the world so you can have your body back. Hang in there!
