This is only my second time posting, but I guess I just need something to help me feel better.
I am 39 weeks 4 days, so not over 40 yet, but my body has been showing all the signs that labor is very near, yet nothing has happened. At my Dr. appt. yesterday my doctor said I was 4cm, 90% effaced, baby is head down at -2 station. (I have been progressing by a cm every week I go in). He thought he would have seen me this past weekend, but I guess not. On top of this, I have been having irregular contractions for the past two days. They intensify at night but slow down and are gone by morning.
I guess I am feel in discouraged at this point. All this progress, but still not really in labor? I've read that this could last for weeks!
Any other ladies experience this or have any words of advice?
Thanks! And a big congrats to all those that have had their little ones already!
