First off huge hugs!! I know this feeling well 2 of my monsters were complete pains literally for days before actual labor kicked in.
Best advice is try and relax, i know as hard as it sounds you want to keep moving to try and get labor going but you'll be running a marathon soon, so rest up, warm baths for the pains, heat packs and if you can have sex. As much as possible, not so your in pain tho, be romantic even if your by yourself, all the good stuff happens with sex, you relax for one, your uterus contracts with the big O and if you have help... man juice softens your cervix to help dilation. Bit gross but Im a bit like that
And last but not least! GOOD LUCK! Hopefully you have your baby in your arms in no time!
Just to let everyone know that on the 1st of march we had a little girl, Matilda. I started labouring on Tuesday night, the 27th, and by early Thursday morning I was in active labour and dilated to 5cm. But by 6am on Friday morning I was still only 5 cm so they performed an emergency c-section. So thank you everyone for your advice, it was so nice to have people to talk to who understood how I was feeling I feel so lucky to finally have my little girl
Congratulations xx Enjoy your little bundle of joy : )
