And I can't sleep since the insomnia hit at 2am. All that I'm getting are really strong BH, a baby that is alternating between kicking me under my ribs, stretching its little legs ALL the way to my side and hiccuping.
I was so hopeful last night that I would be holding my baby today. How can I be 80% effaced, 3cm, baby's head lower than 0 station and not be in labor? What's holding this kid in?
Larissa, she stripped me knowing how uncomfortable I am and it was the least intervenative (is that a word?) way to try to get some labor going. She really can't believe I haven't gone yet. She will only do this or break my water to encourage labor - nothing else for which I am thankful. It was with this practice last pregnancy when I was using the midwives and they mentioned pitocin!! That was when I switched to home birth. Funny how an ob can be more "midwife minded" than some midwives!
