Update latent labor

This afternoon I had an OB appointment. I have been contracting pretty steady over the last week. Last Friday I was 1cm. This afternoon I am 3cm and contracting every 6 to 7 minutes. My OB told me to stay close to the hospital and start walking he thinks maybe he may come tonight. DH is now totally freaking out because he is supposed to leave in the morning and doesn't know if he should go or not. So we play waiting game now to see if I will transition to active labor. DH tried to talk to BM about it and she said she will call the police if his girls aren't at the halfway point by midnight tomorrow. Pointless because he is not violating anything, there is nothing in writing about drop off dates and times. If baby comes she wants him to leave me and baby to start the drive to take them as soon as he is born as in me still in the hospital. I am at a loss for words and DH doesn't even know what to do. Meanwhile I feel like crap. He's mad, I am contracting and the SKIDS are all excited baby might be coming and keep asking. I really don't know what to do anymore.

    She's a piece of work!
    Don't worry about her if he isn't violating anything she needs to wait. I hope things go smoothly for you and LO
  • What a meanie pants!! Do you guys have anyone that would be willing to pick up the skids for y'all, a grandparent or aunt? BM is being totally unreasonable and it only hurts her kiddos. What a blitch! Thoughts and prayers to you!! Keep walking, try not to stress and good luck!! You could be meeting baby very soon! YAY!
  • Screw BM if there is nothing in writing, don't even worry about that right now. Take care of yourself!!

  • Oh wow! Good thoughts that you make some more progress and finally get some relief AND get to meet your little dude.

     

    And BM sounds like a freaking wench. I would advise her that if she wants her children by midnight, she needs to start driving.

  • That is such crap from BM! Sorry you are having to deal with all this. And to top it off, she's basically denying the kids a chance to possibly meet their new sibling! Wth! She shoulds like a real peach.

    Good luck with everything, and hope everything goes smoothly if lo decides to come tonight!

    What a horrible person she is. Please don't let her stress you. I know that sounds impossible. Man if I were him I would stick it out let her call the cops and be miserable. You are all a happy anxious family right now and you should not be left alone.

    I don't know your situation but I say do this!! Screw her!! What are the cops going to do? Hello his wife was in LABOR I think that is a valid excuse for ANYTHING.

  • Sweet lord, you have so much on your plate right now and BM is not making things easy. Like pp said if nothing's in writing don't stress just concentrate on your little guy. Sending TP your way.
  • I don't get how someone can be so selfish.

    Praying that you can find a solution and that LO stays put for a few more days!

  • Thanks, you guys made me feel better. I am not sure what DH has decided but I think he is leaning towards not going. I personally think she doesn't want the kids to be here for the birth of the baby. I don't control labor, and she was warned well before summer time that the pick up date would be very close to my due date and an alternate plan needed to be made just in case.

  • I am sorry about BM. Good luck. I went in today for an ob check cause I was having alot of pressure I am at 2 1/2 easily a 3 and am now 60. My MW told me that I could be having a baby tonight and I am just crossing my fingers if he is going to come early I would like to atleast get through Austin's birthday tomorrow. Which of course has me freaking out that I am going to go into labor. Oh and she also has to remind me that it's a full moon this week so we would have to wait and see. Good luck mama. I hope all goes well.

    I agree with this. If she can't legally do anything then I wouldn't stress. You have yourself and baby to worry about now. 

    Good luck. Thinking of you!

  • Ugh BM is a total twat. So sorry you're dealing with that. Since there is nothing in writing, your H should tell her he is staying with his wife who may give birth to his son within the next day or two. Tough titties.

    Ugh I can't stand women like her.

    Seriously. She can step off. It's not like you want to be in latent labor. You're not doing it to inconvenience her.

    Wow, I have no words.  It is always amazing to me how some people can be so selfish and have no empathy for someone else's situation.  Really the best you can do is just ignore her and her drama, which is completely unnecessary and meant to try to show you and your DH who is boss, her.  Don't give her that power.  If she wants the kids, she can pick them up and not take away from your special day.

  • Oh, girl. Way for BM to put a dark cloud over such an exciting time for you, DH, and the kids. I'm so sorry. Hopefully, she will see how ridiculous she is being and change her tune.

    If your labor does progress, I'm wishing you the best of luck and sending you good vibes!!

  • Let her have her tantrum. You and DH have more important things to do right now. Focus on your labor and deal with her later.

    Best of luck and keep us posted!
