Bionic Mamas

you're not losing a vagina, you're gaining a son



Update: 1-minute contractions every 10 minutes from 4am on. They start in my back, then come around to belly and shoot down legs. Maybe a bit more frequent now.

Talked to Dr. Skinny late last night, because I didn’t understand that this blood business was just going to go on and on (intermittently). Frankly, she was kind of a bitch about it. Poop on her. (Actually, if she ends up at the delivery, perhaps the opportunity to do just that will be the silver lining….)

So, FYI, since all the books and stuff just talk about “blood-tinged mucous”: apparently if your bloody show looks like a heavy period and the doctor says that’s okay, you should not expect it to stop.

I don’t know if this is early labor or pre-labor or what, but I do know that whatever it is, it is not shaking my resolve vis-a-vis that epidural. Just for the record.

  1. poop on her. teeheee.. i love it!
    getting so close now! wishing you so much luck.

  2. Looks like you're on your way my dear! Definitely poop on the doc if you have a chance. And heck, have the baby do it too while you're at it. Very excited for you!

  3. Sounds like labor, though the early labor can take a long time. It was 10 hours this time before I was having contractions every 3-5 minutes.I used the Contraction Master online to track them.

    Good luck!

  4. sending more healthy labor vibes your way…

    (and definitely poo on the doc; no need for bitchiness at this time)

  5. Oooh! Wow.
    That's me, I have caught up.

    Loads and loads of good wishes, loads.

    (Also, how DARE that Dr Skinny? Grr.)

  6. It does seem like the medical establishment could be a leeeetel more specific about the variety of things that are considered normal and appropriate in labor. Sorry she was a bitch, but I suppose that if she says you're fine, you are. I'm so excited to meet the bean! I hope things are fast and minimally painful, with a little slice of revenge included for the doc.

  7. Sadly, you'll probably just end up punishing some L&D nurse, but we can dream… I will be thinking of you and hoping that this birth business moves forward with all appropriate haste and with magical smoothness. You are on your way!

  8. I don't blame you for being worried; I never had anything like that until I was in active labor (and I'm a bleeder!). Poop on her indeed!

  9. Great timing! Term baby, but not a fat, difficult-to-deliver baby! Fingers crossed for you.

  10. Good luck! I'm all for pooping on the doctor – your best opportunity of the year!

  11. OMG! You're about to have a baby!

  12. Bah to Dr Skinny. BAH. NO ONE is allowed to be a bitch to a bleeding pregnant woman, EVER. I dare you to really truly poop on her.

    I will continue to haunt your blog, clicking refresh, chewing my nails, and being twitchy and excitable. Basically waiting-room pacing, internet style.

    Courage, mon brave! *Waves fist in the air encouragingly*

  13. it sounds like its time! let the games begin!

  14. Ooh – bon courage – what a moment. Sending lots of good wishes your way.

  15. Sending comforting hugs and good vibes!!! WOO HOO let's get this party started!!

  16. can't wait to hear about the bebe…and the epidural 🙂

  17. Here's hoping your little one shows up in relatively short order. Cheeeeeeering!

  18. Poop! Heh, heh. Sorry, I'm eight.

    Good luck! 🙂
