I have been in prodromal or prelabour for the past four days. I am about to have a nervous breakdown I think... no sleep, all this pain, and still no baby. The contractions come every night, so hence the no sleep, in unpredictable and inconsistent patterns. They vary in intesity, and as the days have gone on they are getting more and more difficult to manage. I don't know if this is because the intensity is increasing or if my body is getting tired.
My due date is today... DH and I have talked about it and I think I will be asking my midwife if she we can consult with an OB about an induction. I hate to think that it has come to this, but DH and I are so emotionally and physically exhausted and I don't think my body can take much more of this.
I am so frustrated... why is my body not going what it is supposed to do? Why have I had to do this for four whole days? My midwife insists that while the length of time is not exactly common, it is not abnormal and I should not worry. I kind of get the feeling from her like I should suck it up or something. Seriously, I can't do much more of this!
