    Thursday is the longest she'll let me go. I am on the books for an 8am induction at 41w2days.
    Whats crappy is that I'm 75%effaced and 3+cm! I should be in labor. I've had bouts of contractions, and 3 false alarms (the one got me to 3cm50% but fizzled before completion). Since then I've had 2 seemingly labor experiences, and random contractions for 3 weeks now since the first bout.
    ...sigh. I wonder why I got stuck?

    one never knows why, but :hug: as it doesnt change the anxiety or exhaustion.

    My dr would have put me in.

    Did you have issues with your first (daughter? ) labor?

    I chose to be induced with her at 39.5 weeks. I had a relatively easy labor for a first timer, but I do have issues with induction now. I do not want interventions. I don't want to be tied to a bed or IV and I do not want pain medication.
    Of course I am slowly watching my personal wishes fade away... there's still time though. I am trying to be positive.

    You sound like me. I was induced with all three of my girls but only when the Dr told me enough was enough and that we had waited as long as we safely could. I got Pitocin, but once my labor started they took me off ...I managed to go through labor and delivery with no other meds.

    I hope you go into labor on your own soon :hug:

    I made it to 4cm but over 3 hours and the contractions spaced out from 3 minutes apart, to 6-7min, and then 10... and now back to random. I went home after 3 hours at the hospital, though they gave me the option to stay. I'm just not in the mood to pace the same hallway for hours and hours.
    Poor hubby went to work anyways today. Hopefully today will still bring baby!

    Still here... I woke up bawling today because now I only have one day left before they induce me. I am trying now to find peace with it, but not doing a good job.
