My contractions have continued. They are about 7-10 minutes apart. I have not appetite. I’ve not really eaten for a day and a half. But I’ve been drinking LOTS!

I had an appointment with Bobbie. I am 1cm dilated and still 50% effaced. My contractions are 10 minutes apart. She gave me 2 seconal (a narcotic) for Monday and Tuesday nights to try to stop the contractions and let me get some rest.

The contractions continue. I took the second Seconal but it did not good. I’m exhausted!!

Still having contractions, but no increase in intensity…I’m so very tired! I haven’t slept well for about a week.

Contractions are continuing-probably about 10-15 minutes apart. Not really timing them-I’m trying to IGNORE them!

The contractions continue, but I haven’t felt baby move all day. We went grocery shopping and when we got home, I drank some sweet tea and ate a cherry pie. I waited for an hour, but Michaela still didn’t move, so I called the office. I felt bad because it was 4:30pm and they close at 5:00pm, but they were very kind.
I weigh about 179-YIKES! Baby was fine-she eventually started moving. Bobbie checked me and said that my cervix is much softer-about 75% effaced. Still about 1cm dilated. She said I have no more mucus plug, and she stripped my membranes. OUCH!
