Patience is a Virtue

Ugh, I hate virtues.

So, I’ve been having contractions off and on.  They’ll get really strong and about 8 min apart and then stop all together.  I’ve been using the breast pump (nipple stimulation releases oxytocin), accupressure, and meditation.  It works but the contractions don’t continue!  Ugh.  Ugh. Ugh.  
On a cool note I’m getting a little colostrum when I pump so all systems are go in the mammary area.  Aellyn is also shifted into full occiput anterior.  I know the timing needs to be right.  I just SO want to avoid pitocin induction.  I want to meet my baby girl!  waaaaaa.
