Contractions (MILD AS ANYTHING contractions) have hung around for two days without really doing much.

If I'm not in proper full-on labour tomorrow, they're probably going to induce.

Standing by...

Oh, you poor thing- it sucks when it's looking like it'll happen (yay, exciting!) and then you get nothing (snore....) for so long.

May bub hurry up and make his way out soon! :-)

PS- I had increasingly strong contractions (not knowing what they were!) for several days before my bub really was ready to appear. I wouldn't rush into being induced, if you can avoid it, as bub will surely appear when he's ready. :-)

PPS- The husband said to tell you "don't worry, it's much easier the second time around!".

PPS- Again, good luck! Remember, there's nothing wrong with deciding you do want painkillers after all, if it gets too much. After two natural births, I can highly recommend anything that dulls the pain and lets you relax. :-)

But…I haven't given you my labor pep-talk yet!

1. Everybody is different, but just remember that all of your female ancestors for multitudes of generations have successfully done this!

2. Labor isn't awful for everyone. Really. 2 women in my birth group of 13 had pain-free labors (including me). I should probably mention that I have a pretty high pain threshold. ;-)

3. Sometimes those kids just are waaaaaay too comfy in there. I induced with castor oil at 11 days overdue. This used to be considered a medical induction, but is now a home-remedy kind of induction. Also, spicy food and being active have contributed to getting labor going among my acquaintance. Whatever works, say I.

4. So exciting! I wish you all the best!

So...will you soon have a new tag such as 'Motherhood and all its sundry joys', or 'aaaarghbabies'...? :-)

Good luck, Deird.

So it appears your son will be a Scorpio.
