My birthing waves started early Thursday Morning March 1st at 1am and ended after 2 hours. This pattern of prodromal birthing continued Friday Night and Saturday proceeded from 3pm to 12am. I thought it was my birthing time so I began my Hypnobabies tracks. Birthing Waves would be less than 5 minutes apart for hours, but the intensity was just not where it needed to be, eventually they stopped around midnight and only occurred once every hour at the most.
First time mom has super fast pushing stage after patiently waiting for her waves after PROM at 37 weeks
Editor's Note: PROM means premature rupture of membranes. When the water breaks before waves start.
On Saturday morning, at 37 weeks, I awoke at 6am to a pop and minutes later I was laying in a large pool of water. We immediately put on my headphones and started by listening to the birthing day affirmations and early birthing tracks. We waited several hours but didn't notice any pressure waves starting. So we took a 2 mile walk while listening to our tracks with headphones, we also tried nipple stimulation and squats, lunges and hip circles. We also made sure to get some rest and eat a large breakfast and lunch. We decided to go to our hospital's birthing center around 2pm. They suggested starting pitocin, but we stood our ground and asked for more time to get everything going naturally.
