It seems pretty clear that Silas is taking a very different approach to being born than Henry did. Henry's labor started and moved like a lightening bolt straight to birth in 4 hours. This one has been teasing me with regular but not-strong contractions all week. This morning i had a non-stress test and was having strong contractions every 4-5 minutes. They sent me to OB triage where they determined that i had dilated more (thank heavens) but by the time i got there my contractions had all but stopped. They sent me home.
We got Henry off to daycare and JT didn't go to work so now we're off to do a lot of walking and see if we can get this labor moving. Hopefully we'll have a little one that decides to make his entrance today-- perhaps even during daytime hours-- but that may be too much to ask for.
We'll keep you updated!
