2nd time and still don't understand labor 😬


Had a rapid labor and birth with my first so my doctor wanted me to go to the hospital at consistent 10min contractions. Did so only to leave my house at 8pm and get home 1am this morning. Spent two hours total of the hospital time walking to try to speed things along. Got to only 1min between contractions consistently while walking only for them to die down every time I'd lay down for them to perform monitoring and a cervix check again. Went in at 2.5 dilated and barely increased from there and not water leakage so they had to send me home. Membrane strip on Friday and inducing Monday morning if no baby by then. Hopefully little guy comes this weekend when my husband is off work before I have to get induced 😣 For now, hanging out with recently ultra clingy minion #1:
