I woke up to several contractions, but I also woke up knowing they had slowed way down with the sleep and remaining motionless and vertical for so long. I had to again make the tough call to go with rest rather than labor progress, knowing that I still have a long way to go. I managed to sleep until 5 and I'm now sitting on the yoga ball trying to get #2 engaged again and ready to rock this out today. Oh please be today! Will update again today as I can.
Update: I've been up for 3 hours and only had a couple of contractions. Midwife advised to take magnesium citrate, a laxative. Went to CVS and the stuff comes in a bottle. It's like laxative soda and is disgusting. Cheers!
Update #2: Well, that didn't seem to work. I've had contractions, but nothing I'd call progress. I feel like I've been running a marathon with no mile markers and thought I was around the halfway point only to discover I'm at mile 2. It's frustrating, but I figure with all this trying and still nothing's happening it's just not time yet. Prelabor is frustrating, that's all there is to it! So, yeah back to assuming no #2 until her due date on Monday.
