New thread for us stragglers...

Morning all

So had acupuncture yesterday - made me feel v tired and had quite a few cramps and aches but then nothing sad My practitioner did say it can take between 2 and 36 hours to take effect and works best at one week overdue so we'll see what happens. I have a consultant appointment this afternoon so I guess I'll find out what the options are. My hospital doesn't like to let ladies go more than 10 days overdue so I'm looking at induction on Sunday/Monday. Hoping and praying baby comes before then.

Hope everyone's doing well smile

Morning tugs! The title of this thread had better be true. Never has bloody mucus been so hotly anticipated.

woody2313 Wed 23-Jan-13 09:35:33

Allchik, hope you are ok - your birth story sounds very traumatic but hopefully it will soon become a distant memory as you enjoy your time with Eleni smile

SilverSixpence Wed 23-Jan-13 10:04:51

Allchik, sounds like it was a difficult birth, be kind to yourself and rest when you can for the next few weeks. I can't imagine how you felt when epidural suddenly failed shock

tugstonia I'm in Penge so we're neighbours smile which hospital are you
Booked at?

lollipoppi Wed 23-Jan-13 10:20:44

Love the title, although baby doesn't seemed to have received the eviction notice I served!!
Just had my 2nd sweep at midwife, jeeezzzz it was a little more than uncomfortable this time!!

SilverSixpence Wed 23-Jan-13 10:25:14

My mum and sister are coming to stay on Saturday so I'm hoping this baby will be out before then! I'm going for a walk today so maybe that will persuade her.

Those of you with children already, are you still doing the school run? I just can't face the mornings so have been gettin DH to do it and sleeping in a bit!

eagleray Wed 23-Jan-13 10:54:34

Gosh Allchik you have been through the wars, and sounds like you are very understandably a bit traumatised. I'm really scared of ending up in a similar situation (induction booked for tomorrow) but it is strangely comforting to read the experiences of others and see that you are alive and (relatively) well at the end of it. Hopefully the memories of it all will fade in time, especially now you have got little Eleni to keep you busy smile

Tugs good luck with the consultant appt. I had one yesterday (only because I didn't go through with the induction at 3 days overdue). Induction now booked for tomorrow. Had sweep yesterday and have had various pains come and go (including a most spectacular one a few minutes ago where I couldn't breathe but was probably indigestion). The pressure to give birth is horrid isn't it!

salt1 Wed 23-Jan-13 11:04:56

hope you are feeling a bit better allchick sounds like you did brilliantly.

has anyone else got nipple pain????

Cejay8 Wed 23-Jan-13 12:09:59

I'm still waiting! 40+11 now and having second sweep today and booked for induction tomorrow. Disappointing as was planning a water birth at home hmm DS was born at 40+6 so I wasn't expecting this one to go further! Have tried clary sage, lots of walking, bouncing on the gym ball.... To no avail.... Frustrating! And I'm sleeping so badly. Not long to wait now at least grin

Bunny222 Wed 23-Jan-13 12:14:32

tugs love the eviction name, that is exactly what ive been telling bump!

Having a sweep tomoro... Fingers crossed. Good luck all.

eagleray Wed 23-Jan-13 12:21:33

Sorry Cejay - in same boat as you in that I was planning HB with pool too, and now have induction booked for tomorrow (am 40+5). I would certainly be expecting to have a second baby soon - how frustrating for you angry

Hope your sweep today does the trick...

salt1 Wed 23-Jan-13 12:27:12

cejay8 i can really empathise with your disappointment regarding having to change birth plans. i was very excited about my planned water birth at the birthing centre but now looks likely i will be needing to go to the labour suite due to high blood pressure. i realise a safe birth is the only priority but is has taken a couple of days to adjust my mind.

also i have bought some soft toys new, and a mamas and papas conforter - do you think i should was these? (sorry if stupid question - sometimes i really know nothing!!)

Cejay8 Wed 23-Jan-13 13:28:11

Second sweep done but didn't go that well, apparently cervix is fully effaced but high and baby is back to back so she couldn't do such a good sweep hmm

I am disappointed to not get my home birth and the pool is here haunting me! I'm hoping that I'll only need one intervention so that I can use the birthing centre rather than labour ward - but who knows...

Feeling a bit anxious re induction tomorrow now.

I personally wouldn't bother washing soft toys but I would probably wash the comforter - DS has 3 the same and one is always in the wash!

djvesi Wed 23-Jan-13 15:34:46

40+5, and NOTHING. I feel like I'm going to be pregnant for ever. Sigh...

Tugstonia Wed 23-Jan-13 16:51:55

djvesi I feel exactly the same, this pregnancy is going on forever.

Just back from consultant - doc attempted a sweep, wasn't painful but she was quite 'rough' and I now feel like I've been punched in the fanjo. She said cervix is quite far back so she couldn't do a proper sweep but said it feels v soft which I guess is a good sign. Seeing midwife tomorrow and will get her to have a go as well.

Cejay and eagle best of luck with your inductions tomorrow and bunny good luck with your sweep smile

PixelCarrier Wed 23-Jan-13 22:20:06

Now 41+3, sweep cancelled last Friday due to us being snowed in, unable to have sweep on Monday as cervix unfavourable, was just about able to have a sweep this morning, but nothing doing. Booked in for induction on Friday...
Hope all the other stragglers like me are hanging in there!

lollipoppi Thu 24-Jan-13 00:30:27

Hello ladies, our beautiful little princess Darcie Rose was born at 8.10pm weighing 7lb 7oz xxx

SilverSixpence Thu 24-Jan-13 01:46:51

Hello everyone, we had our baby girl at 8.30pm after a lovely (but v painful!) waterbirth at MLU. Fully dilated on arrival! Unfortunately had heavy bleeding afterwards and second degree tear and had to be transferred to delivery suite for syntocinon drip and just avoided being taken into theatre shock

glorious Thu 24-Jan-13 07:46:41

Congratulations lolli and silver.

I also feel like this baby is never coming... Late pregnancy is not good for planning freaks is it?!

Tugstonia Thu 24-Jan-13 08:00:29

Congratulations lolli and silver! That sweep did the trick then lolli? Hope you recover quickly silver.

No news from me. It's my birthday tomorrow so maybe I'll get a special birthday present?! I can but wish...

Bunny222 Thu 24-Jan-13 08:12:17

Wonderful news lolli and silver!

Feeling a bit anxious about sweep today, think im scared if it works and scared if it doesnt.
Agree glorious going past your due date messes with your head!

Good luck all.

Bunny222 Thu 24-Jan-13 08:14:06

Wonderful news lolli and silver!

Feeling a bit anxious about sweep today, think im scared if it works and scared if it doesnt.
Agree glorious going past your due date messes with your head!

Good luck all.

Hi all - accidentally posted on the old thread! Baby boy Callum born Tuesday at 3.35pm, weighing 7lb 15oz. Ended up having to go to the big city hospital as his hearbeat was dropping, but all OK in the end. Home now and trying to get to grips with feeding...

eagleray Thu 24-Jan-13 11:12:12

Congratulations Lolli, Silver and Cupcakes!

Bunny and Tugs - good luck with your sweeps today

I have had quite an anxious night (and certainly given up on sweeps working or the baby coming of her own accord any time soon) and now the hospital hasn't even rung! and too scared to ring them

glorious Thu 24-Jan-13 11:13:24

Hooray for cupcakes. Sorry about the transfer, that must have been scary. But glad you are both ok smile

glorious Thu 24-Jan-13 11:16:41

sorry about that eagle. I don't have anything to say to make it better but DH did say to me this morning that every day is a day closer to meeting our baby and that helped me a bit.

Willothewhip Thu 24-Jan-13 13:42:59

Congratulations to fellow due daters lolli, silver and cupcakes. Fantastic news that your babies have arrived safely.

Totally agree with glorious and bunny. I'm struggling to keep my control freak tendencies at bay.... I'm now getting contractions most nights which are enough to keep me awake but are not getting regular or closer together and they head off for most of the day. I had a sweep on Tues and got a bishop score of 4 which means my cervix is still 'unfavourable'....grrr come on cervix!

I'm just back from CTG monitoring at the hospital - all is inching forward (baby now at 1/5th palpable). There's another sweep planned for Mon and further monitoring in the week but if no action they want to induce on Fri when I'm almost 42weeks. Poor DH is on a nightly 'performance' schedule - anything to encourage things forward naturally.....

woody2313 Thu 24-Jan-13 14:45:03

Nothing to report here really. Midwife says baby's head is as engaged as can be and I've been having pretty uncomfortable period-esque pains but nothing to show for them. Persuaded DH to have sex yesterday in a bid to get things going but man it hurt afterwards! shock Will not be trying that again in a hurry!

Willothewhip Thu 24-Jan-13 15:20:18

woody, it sounds like we are at a similar stage. The contractions that I'm experiencing are like period-esque pains and the hospital told me this morning that they should develop into proper labour in time.

Bunny222 Thu 24-Jan-13 15:46:32

Hi girls. Midwife wouldnt do sweep as blood pressure has shot up and I am swollen, so now sat at hosp waiting for them to do blood tests etc to rule out or confirm pre eclampsia. Eck. She said they may induce while im here if theyre worried. Bump is jumping about loads, am hoping that he'll sense were at the hospital and get himselfstarted!
Hope youre all ok. And well done

salt1 Thu 24-Jan-13 16:06:27

hi bunny i was in exact same position last week. after much talk of induction was sent home with medication and to wait for things to happen naturally. best of luck x

Congratulations all the new mummy's!
41 weeks today and nothing happening here either.
I'm booked in for a sweep on Tuesday when I'll be 12 days over but hopefully by then i will already have baby in my arms.

Tugstonia Thu 24-Jan-13 18:08:50

bunny hope you're ok, keep us posted.

I too am at the hospital after community midwife sent me here because baby's heart rate is low so being monitored...

salt1 Thu 24-Jan-13 18:21:51

thinking of you tugs x

Tugstonia Thu 24-Jan-13 21:53:39

Home after a few hours on the CTG. Baby's heart rate was gradually going lower and lower and after much panicking and faffing about whether they were picking up my pulse or the baby's they did a quick scan and then put me on a saline drip and then baby's heart rate picked up and was fine again. Senior obstetric consultant was happy with the last trace and told me all was ok and sent me home. I was a bit hmm because of how panicked the first lot of doctors were and consequently how panicked I became, and couldn't believe they'd send me home - thought they would induce me there and then. But after much reassuring the consultant convinced me all was ok... Baby is moving lots so guess I have to just believe it. I'm seeing midwife again tomorrow who will attempt another sweep and book me for induction on Monday if nothing happens.

For god's sake baby just COME OUT ALREADY! This stress is doing my nut.

Cejay8 Thu 24-Jan-13 21:57:25

Sophie Juliette was born today at 2.43pm weighing 9lbs! I had my waters broken at 10.30am and managed to have her in super quick time in the birthing centre - so induction was actually all fine and we're all very happy. grin

Bunny222 Thu 24-Jan-13 22:50:43

Congrats cejay lovely name.
Am back home after having a sweep, all ok with bloods test etc which is great, was hoping maybe they wud induce, as I am term, we were there with all our stuff etc, but back home to be patient. Totally know how you feel tugs - glad youre back home ok tho.
Second sweep planned for monday, no induction date yet tho...

katolla Fri 25-Jan-13 08:00:01

I'm not even overdue yet and I feel like I'm going mad so god knows how all you are coping. Friend due day after me just had her waters break a few minutes ago. eats pineapple

djvesi Fri 25-Jan-13 08:09:42

Had docs appointment yesterday, am 41wks today sad, they say I'm fine, 2cm, soft cervix, just need a kick off, they will try catheter induction next Friday!!! A whole week more !!! Can't believe it. I came home after, walked up stairs 20x, bounced on ball for an hour while playing with nipples and then jumped DH when he walked in the door and still nothing. I give up!

well done tugs - sounds like you coped brilliantly with a stressful situation.

congrats cejay lovely name

mulan84 Fri 25-Jan-13 13:21:54

Bit more of a lurker than a poster, but have been reading. Baby Liam arrived early 17/01/13 after induced forceps labour and 2 epidurals (first failed). Sorry for not updating sooner, was pretty traumatic! Hope everyone else has had a better experience. Congrats to all new mums and good luck to all those still waiting. All the pain was worth it. smile

Congrats to all the new mummy's!!

Bunny222 Fri 25-Jan-13 16:15:15

Hi all. Getting fed up a bit, expecting midwife to have contacted me about an induction date, but nothing. Boo! :-( nothing seems to have happened since the sweep, guess its going to be a long weekend :-(

Hope those who are overdue are having some progress!

Tugstonia Fri 25-Jan-13 18:27:21

Congratulations cejay and mulan!

It's my birthday today smile Really wanted a special present in the form of my baby but it's not going to happen. Saw my lovely midwife who attempted another sweep but couldn't get anywhere near my cervix, said it's not likely to happen without help. She was pretty pissed off on my behalf that they let me go home last night and has booked me in for Sunday, couldn't get me in any sooner. I am feeling really quite stressed and teary after hardly sleeping a wink last night and don't know how I'll make it to Sunday. I'm half tempted to go to the labour ward tonight and set up camp.

bealos Fri 25-Jan-13 20:31:37

Congrats all who've joined us in the last few days!

[cupcakes I posted on the old thread too!)

I've decided on a name - Ada Ngaio.

I love the various strong women throughout history associated with the name Ada and the second name, Ngaio, is a Maori name (pronounced Ny-Oh), chosen by my partner who is from New Zealand.

Will post up my birth story when I get a thoughtful moment to write it up!

glorious Fri 25-Jan-13 21:16:06

oh tugs I'm sorry. I had a failed sweep today too (cervix fine but head not engaged enough) and have spent most of the afternoon in tears because I don't want to be induced. Totally ridiculous and selfish I know when I'm lucky to be well and baby is fine. Horrible for you on your birthday. Have you got something planned for tomorrow to make Sunday come around more quickly?

lovely name bealos and nice of you to visit!

Tugstonia Sat 26-Jan-13 08:49:45

Thanks glorious smile Sorry you had a failed sweep too and that you were upset yesterday. I know exactly what you mean about not wanting to be induced and don't think you're being ridiculous or selfish at all. Do you know when you would be induced if it came to that? I'm quite sad that my birth plan is out the window but equally just want my baby out now. I'm completely obsessed with monitoring movements and listening to baby's heart rate and DP is getting stressed out by how stressed I am. He says he can feel the baby move when he touches my bump but I often just can't feel it. All this stress cannot be good for baby or me.

bealos lovely name for your daughter. I have a fantastic friend called Ngaio.

Bunny222 Sat 26-Jan-13 08:57:55

Tugs thats rotten on your birthday. Im glad for you that youre at least booked in for tomorrow, hang in there :-)
My sweep from thursday appears to have done nothing at all, altho they found I was 2cm dilated and I was one point off having waters broken on the Bishops score, they sent me home and nada. Im really getting fed up, getting lots of pains and finding walking and sitting uncomfortable, and havent been given an induction date, just another sweep planned for monday.
Baby is still back to back despite all my excercises, yoga and ball work. Feet and calves horribly swollen. Surely I must be nearly done now... :-( sorry for moan.

Tugstonia Sat 26-Jan-13 09:44:28

Ah bunny sorry your sweep hasn't done much. The good thing though is that you're 2cm dilated and so must be getting closer? Maybe Monday's sweep will do the job smile

Midwife is coming round at midday to listen in to baby's heartbeat. Going out for a walk now and then going to clean the flat so it's spick and span for when we come home.

Bunny222 Sat 26-Jan-13 10:03:23

Good luck Tugs :-)

Everyone has gone quiet...are you all off having babies?

Bunny222 Sat 26-Jan-13 13:54:24

I wish! :-)

djvesi Sat 26-Jan-13 14:14:53

I wish too bunny, I want to celebrate all the new mums and send you all loads of congrats, but I'm also incredibly frustrated with waiting to the point that it seems to cloud my thoughts completely.

glorious Sat 26-Jan-13 17:28:44

bunny that is frustrating - hopefully all going in the right direction at least. I've got everything crossed for you.

tugs thanks. it's booked for Thursday night so a while to go but feels a bit close for comfort. I can totally understand why you're stressed, I'd be just the same. You are so nearly there now smile

djvesi sending you labour vibes too!

godzookey Sat 26-Jan-13 21:35:54

hi LADIES,

So finally... Ethan James Philemon ( don't judge me, weird family name that boys get in DHs family) was born by emergency c section at 1:30am 24th January - i had been in labour since Tuesday and literally had to be given an epidural at 3cm!!

To cut a long story short, i wasn't progressing at all so ended up in c section and we came home this afternoon.

Ethan is MASSIVE at 9lb,8oz and feeds continuously -already need to combo feed him as my boobs can't keep up with his demands!!

Congrats to all the latest new mums and sending positive labour vibes to everyone still expecting

xxxx

Bunny222 Sun 27-Jan-13 08:03:47

Godz congrats, lovely name and wow what a good size.
Once again feeling so fed up, strong pains in the night like a belt of pain in lower tummy and back but still nothing :-( think ill chase up my midwife, just want to feel like somthing is progressing. Cant understand that if I was 2cm dilated on thurs, why nothing else is happening. Come on body!

Hope ur all ok and less grumpy. Good luck today Tugs!

Bunny222 Sun 27-Jan-13 08:04:38

I mean - less grumpy than me - ha!

woody2313 Sun 27-Jan-13 09:51:20

Fair play,I feel rubbish today - hardly any sleep, so ridiculously achey hmm that's enough now baby, time for you to make an appearance...

salt1 Sun 27-Jan-13 10:09:42

i am grumpy, achey and sleep deprived too ...

woody2313 Sun 27-Jan-13 11:33:04

thanks salt

katolla Sun 27-Jan-13 12:02:37

Cervix still intact but I was just sick, does that count for anything?

salt1 Sun 27-Jan-13 12:45:04

thanks woody

it might do katolla - sending positive thoughts.

just eaten some bombay mix in the hope the spices might do some work ...

glorious Sun 27-Jan-13 19:28:42

also extremely grumpy and frustrated by regular painful braxtons which keep turning out to be nothing.

Hope it did turn out to be a good sign katolla

And good luck Tugs!

katolla Mon 28-Jan-13 06:56:38

Yeah regular Braxtons are so annoying! I guess well know when it starts counting right?

bealos love the name we are doing really similar

woody2313 Mon 28-Jan-13 12:16:12

So having been full of beans last week after the midwife told me the baby's head was fully engaged and would more than likely be here within the week, am now feeling frustrated again following this morning's appointment: head less engaged than last week (how can that be?! have walked and bounced on ball every day! Plus my pelvis aches so much!) and she wouldn't do a sweep either - says I've got to wait until I'm 7 days overdue, not 5 angry The good news is that baby is absolutely fine, I'm just being a mardy cow cos I'm so impatient! Roll on Wednesday afternoon smile

woody2313 Mon 28-Jan-13 12:19:35

STILL PREGNANT.

Tugstonia Mon 28-Jan-13 13:15:21

Me too! Was really hoping my next post would be to say I'd had my baby but no. Started induction yesterday, first pessary in at 10.30am, cramps at 2pm and strong contractions at 6pm that then stopped at 9pm. Had a very bad nights sleep as my back was killing me and the noise of the ward. Internal exam this morning showed cervix hard, closed and far, far away so had second pessary put in and now playing 24 hour waiting game again to see if it has any effect and if they can break my waters. Baby's heart rate still quite low but they're keeping an eye on it. If this pessary doesn't work I'm asking for a c section.

Hope the rest of you are doing ok, I can fully sympathise with the frustration and grumpiness xx

katolla Mon 28-Jan-13 14:29:59

wow tugs you are ten days over, you must be really annoyed. baby nearly here now for sure though! i'm sure your cervix will sort itself out smile

Tugs I had been looking to see your birth announcement. You are so nearly there. It won't be much longer now. I hope that things get going for you soon x

Baby Amber Rebecca was delivered by emergency c section yesterday at 5:01pm weighing 9lb1.
It was all very traumatic and scary! She is doing fine I'm not so fine though after losing too much blood. I will post my birth story when I can get to the laptop.

Good luck to everyone still waiting. The end is in sight (even though it may not feel like it).

glorious Mon 28-Jan-13 15:58:04

I'm sorry tugs. It really can't be much longer now and your lovely baby will be here.

Sorry to hear about your traumatic time milkand2sugars. I'm glad that Amber is doing ok and I hope that you get better really quickly.

I've just been for a long walk and some chocolate fudge cake (sure that's as effective as curry/pineapple/raspberry leaf tea!).

brew for katolla and others still waiting and hoping.

gemdrop84 Mon 28-Jan-13 17:20:37

Hi ladies, it's a bit of a last minute thing but can I join you for some moral support?this is my second dc, expecting a ds who will be called Seth James. Was due on 17th but nothing so far apart from bh stopping and starting in the last 2 weeks. Feeling very frustrated as dd was born at 38+6! Im due to be induced on wed and dreading it. Feel so sad about it. Was bouncing on my ball last night, had a bloody show this morning and some almighty pains but it's stopped again. Torn between trying to keep as active as possible and just resting/slobbing about and stuffing my face! Feeling so sorry for myself!

gemdrop84 Mon 28-Jan-13 17:21:29

Congratulations to all those ladies who've had their babies btw

Belated congrats godz and congrats too to milk, hope you recover ok.
Welcome gem.

Second pessary seems to have done jack shit. Massive lower back ache again but no contractions. Just had a despairing moment and am eating a kitkat or 10 to cheer myself up. If nothing happens by tomorrow I'm refusing a third pessary and will ask for a c section. Is it true that by law you now should be able to get one if you ask? I read that on another thread.

Willothewhip Mon 28-Jan-13 21:37:17

I'm delighted to announce the arrival of Thea Alexandra on 27th Jan at 5.52am, weighing 8lb 12oz. She arrived after nearly two weeks of stop-start contractions (take heart, gem) but when she finally made her decision she was with us in less than three hours. Phew. I am still trying to get my head around the speed of it, but labour was a lot less of an ordeal than I had been fearing. Best of luck to all those who are waiting.

Lora1982 Tue 29-Jan-13 00:01:58

I was wondering why noone had posted on the old thread! I assumed you were all off being in labour!! Good luck tugs i dont know about the rules about c sections so im no help.

djvesi Tue 29-Jan-13 05:21:19

Hey gem and tugs, I'm with u in spirit girls. 41+4 today, due to have balloon catheter induction on Thursday. Also wondering if my body will play ball and do what it's supposed to. Waiting is the worst, am also fluctuating between long walks and slobbing with chocky. Sending good vibes that things happen soon!

PixelCarrier Tue 29-Jan-13 12:44:49

Hello again all,
Nice to catch up after being off the radar for a few days.
Samuel arrived weighing 3.87 kg on the 26th at 4pm, after an induction on Friday lunchtime. I needed the propess then an oxytocin drip (with epidural!!) then a forceps delivery as his head was not coming down right. We'd already decided to go to theatre for a trial of forceps and were just getting set up when he got very distressed, so they were able to get him out in super quick time as everything was to hand. I was really impressed with the care I received. He was better really quickly, and we're now home, and i'm getting used to his desire to feed non stop! He's utterly gorgeous!

Thanks Woody for all the work on updating the list.

Thinking of the rest of you who are still to go...

Congratulations Pixel! My baby fed non stop at the start too, it helped my milk come in quickly and get my supply going. Exhausting at the time but it served a purpose. Things have settled down a bit now thankfully.

I'm thinking of Tugs - I'm hoping that she is snuggling her baby now. Good luck to those mums left to have their babies. It's hard having an edd at the end of the month on mn I think.

glorious Tue 29-Jan-13 14:08:39

congrats for all the new babies and welcome gem

tugs I hope this is no longer relevant but it's the NICE c section guidelines that say you should be able to choose one in the first place if that's what you want. There's also a specific reference to it in their induction guidelines where induction isn't working (section 8.2 of the full version, p77). Basically it says you can have another go at induction if clinically appropriate or opt for a section.

Finally managed a sweep this morning, off for a walk now. Fingers crossed.

salt1 Tue 29-Jan-13 14:11:42

just back from consultant appointment and being induced tomorrow at 9am. i really did not want labour to start this way and am struggling to be positive. had sweep that was painful also.

Cejay8 Tue 29-Jan-13 18:58:32

For those that might be facing induction over the next few days I just wanted to quickly let you know I was planning a water birth at home so was gutted when 40+12 came around after 2 sweeps, reflexology etc. However the MLU were able to break my waters and Sophie was born 4 hours later; I don't feel at all disappointed now, the experience was really positive. I had built the whole induction thing up in my mind but this experience was way better than the spontaneous labour with DS1. Luckily I didn't need any other intervention, just a little kick start and active labour was only 1hr 13 so no time for the pool again, but never mind. Good luck to all those playing the waiting game, you'll have your babies very soon grin

djvesi Tue 29-Jan-13 19:36:24

That's really reassuring cejay, it is really getting to that stage for me. I hope to report such a positive experience back here in a couple of days. Trying to stay relaxed but active, quite the challenge.

glorious Tue 29-Jan-13 21:11:43

Thanks cejay that's really encouraging. I guess the only thing I can predict about labour is that it's unpredictable!

thinking of all my EDD buddies, and others overdue

glorious Wed 30-Jan-13 06:55:09

so 12 hours of contractions got more frequent (3 to 4 mins apart for hours) and painful enough to make me sick and now they've all but stopped. Feeling very sorry for myself.

tugs I hope you've done better than me overnight smile

djvesi Wed 30-Jan-13 07:22:41

its at least something glorious. Do you have an endpoint/hospital intervention date set up? Apologies if you posted before, have only checked back this page. Didn't realize you were due on 18th too! Hope you're feeling OK despite all this waiting.

Have been up each hour all night with DS (2.5yrs) who has terrible cough and wheezing. Thank goodness for ibuprofen and paracetamol alternative dosing, at least he gets a little sleep.

glorious Wed 30-Jan-13 07:36:47

Thursday night, so a fair way off yet. If they'd stop properly I'd feel better as I could get some sleep...

Sorry you haven't had a good night either djvesi

djvesi Wed 30-Jan-13 08:24:10

meh, we'd best get used to it, the disrupted nights, eh? smile
Yep, I'm set up for Thursday too. Hoping it carries through to a Friday arrival. I'll never hear the end of it if she is born on my dad's birthday (31st).

salt1 Wed 30-Jan-13 08:25:37

glad it was a positive experience for you cejay, but it is the first bit getting to 2 xm that i am dreading...

Tugstonia Wed 30-Jan-13 13:26:27

Hi ladies hope you're all hanging in there.

Delighted to say that our baby girl Ottilie arrived this morning by c section weighing 8lb 3 and is so worth the wait! Will post more later but wanted to check in and also say thanks for your good wishes. Best of luck to those being induced xx

Congratulations Tugs! Ottilie was our girls name!

djvesi Wed 30-Jan-13 13:42:51

CONGRATS Tugs!
So good to hear!

Bunny222 Wed 30-Jan-13 14:22:56

Congrats tugs!

My waters broke on Monday at 3am and after a very long labour Benjamin was born on Tuesday 29th via forceps weighing 9lb 8oz! Will write up my story soon. Lost a lot of blood but hopefully going home today. He is wonderful, can't believe he is mine :-)

glorious Wed 30-Jan-13 16:58:52

well done tugs and bunny, I'm so pleased for you both.

salt I do sympathise, after last night and contractions every 20mins or so today I've run out of energy and I'm probably not dilated at all.But it could be absolutely fine for you.

guesss you're right on the sleep dj!

woody2313 Wed 30-Jan-13 17:47:09

Congratulations ladies! Lovely names and I'm so pleased your wait is now over!
I'm just back from my first sweep. Have got another booked in on Friday morning if this one doesn't work then an induction booked on Saturday shock - keeping everything crossed that this first sweep will do enough to avoid any of that other intervention...

February baby it is, then..

djvesi Fri 01-Feb-13 07:13:50

Little Maya born 1/2/13 4am 3.6kg, 50cm. 41+6
Went into natural labour around 5pm yesterday, failed epi at hospital at 7.30pm but persisted through v. painful contractions until 1am with gas, then successful epi, oxitocin eventually, she wouldn't come out with natural pushing due to head being in wrong position, forehead first. When her hr went down too low, rushed off to emergency c section, bikini cut.

The anaesthetist was excellent, absolutely no pain in surgery, hubby held my hand and cut the cord
The midwife was amazing and very calm throughout

What could have been a total nightmare was actually a pretty positive experience.

Now breast feeding like a champ and all resting

So happy to report my news!

Birdies Fri 01-Feb-13 10:13:58

Congrats dj! Such a gorgeous name as well.

Bunny222 Fri 01-Feb-13 13:31:20

Congrats DJ! And good luck woody with your sweep. Benjamin is so lovely I cant believe how amazing it is to finally have him here. So worth all the pregnancy trials!

glorious Fri 01-Feb-13 15:53:45

well done dj! Having spent tues night and weds in early labour I finally got far enough to go to the birth centre on thurs morning and had a great labour from there going from 4cm to baby in 6 hours. Pushing was the hardest thing I've ever done though and baby had her hand by her face so I did tear. No name yet but she's a lovely girl and a respectable 7lbs 6 x

woody2313 Fri 01-Feb-13 17:38:56

Congratulations DJ and Glorious grin
Have actually had 3 now (had a bonus one from a student midwife - ouch!) and nothing has happened so bracing ourselves for hours at the hospital tomorrow as I get induced. At least we'll meet baby soon ��

woody2313 Fri 01-Feb-13 17:38:58

Contractions to the new mommies. I am in hospital on day 3 of induction and having an up and down time overall.

salt1 Fri 01-Feb-13 18:29:00

Ha that should say congratulations ... Freudian slip...

djvesi Fri 01-Feb-13 19:26:44

Ahhh salt! No more contractions for me thanks very much! I've never experienced anything like it, and hope to never again. The midwife convinced me of an epi by saying they could go on for 12 hours more!

Well done Glorious!
Thank you bunny!
Best wishes for your induction woody!

Another arrival. Our boy arrived just before 2am this morning.

I went into labour on Wednesday evening and headed to the MLU in the early hours of thurs morning. I'd hoped to stay there but by late morning I hadn't progressed as far as expected, was violently sick and knackered as I'd not had any sleep, so decided to go for an epidural. Unfortunately even though I was still contracting I didn't progress and baby turned so back to back and i went for a caesarian, which was pretty straight forward.

Our boy is beautiful, 6lb 10oz and a tiny little thing. No name decided as yet.

Day 4 - for fucks sake i can't
just want to have a baby

Bunny222 Sat 02-Feb-13 08:49:45

Salt am sending you love. You WILL get there. And will be wonderful when theyre here. Xx

katolla Sat 02-Feb-13 14:14:28

Salt what's going on , how is the induction not working? Sounds miserable.

salt1 Sat 02-Feb-13 15:04:50

Have finally lost mucas plug waiting to labour suite to have waters broken x

glorious Sat 02-Feb-13 15:05:28

I'm really sorry salt, that's very tough. I had several days of latent labour which is obviously different but I felt quite hopeless and that the baby would never come. she did of course and was all worth it (though I didn't get that rush of love straight away, just relief!).

Massive well done to brugs

Thanks for the sterling work on the stats woody. I'll try to do an update or two when I finally get out of hospital, hopefully later today.

djvesi Sat 02-Feb-13 17:03:40

Good luck salt!

eagleray Sat 02-Feb-13 20:50:58

Hi - sorry for hideously late post - went into labour last Saturday and after a fairly hideous time, baby popped out on Monday afternoon weighing 8lb 12oz. She is gorgeous, no name yet but working on that.

Had problems with PROM, then meconium (both were a matter of debate as to whether they existed so lots of to-ing and fro-ing regarding birth choices, monitoring etc) but ended up not having HB, and instead v medicalised birth with pethedine, epidural, induction then forceps and episiostomy.

Baby has had a bad tongue tie too, which we have only just got sorted out and meanwhile had v bad weight loss. We seem to have turned a corner now though (thanks to gruelling feeding regime) and am feeling almost human today.

She is utterly worth it and just so beautiful - good luck to those of you still waiting smile

I have updated the list for more new babies, I hope it's correct! Congratulations to Brugs and Eagle. I hope you are ok Salt and Woody!

congrats brugs and eagle
having a horrible time here with a jaundiced baby still in hospital and have had no sleep at all as ive been running around feeding and expressing and dealing with drs etc. In for at least another night, probably longer sad

That sounds lousy Glorious. I don't know very much about jaundice, what do you have to do to improve it?

woody2313 Sun 03-Feb-13 09:06:11

It's boy! Joseph was born at 12.40 this morning after 10.5 hours of very painfulinduced labour. He's gorgeous - very long, brown hair, big hands and feet, 9 lb 3! He swallowed a load of meconium as he was born so is currently on the neo-natal ward but is breathing by himself and is absolutely fine. DH and I are totally besotted already! Have not had a wink of sleep - obviously starting as I mean to go on!

Bunny222 Sun 03-Feb-13 09:33:40

Congrats woody love the name. Hope little one is doing ok and you can go home soon.

Hope ur all doing ok. Am struggling with breast feeding, both the technique and now milk is in the pain of my boobs. Absolutely love our little baby I cant believe what a wonderful thing it is to have them here.

Will write birth story when on computer, mine was a really long one :-/

Good luck to those left to go! Xx

Tugstonia Sun 03-Feb-13 11:41:22

Congratulations to bunny, woody, brugs, glorious and eagle and thinking of salt and katolla, hope you are snuggling your babies now.

I have really struggled with breast feeding too and found the pressure to feed every 3 hours in hospital v tough. I ended up having to manually express colostrum which took me an hour to get 0.5ml and made my nipples raw. My wonderful community midwife suggested nipple shields because I have v flat nipples and they have been a godsend. Baby is now guzzling away. Still quite sore but am persevering.

Tugstonia Sun 03-Feb-13 11:42:24

Glorious that sounds v tough hope you're ok and can go home with your little one soon x

I've updated the list for Woody and have deleted all the 'still waiting' list. Lots of those ladies must have had their babies by now but not been posting. As we have new announcements we can just add them to the arrived list so it doesn't take up so much space. Hope no-one minds!

Congratulations Woody! Any news Salt?

Tugs - breastfeeding does really get easier. I had a day of nipple shields early on to help my poor shredded nipples recover. Two weeks on and things are much, much better. It sounds like you're doing really well to persevere.

Seth James was born at 7.20am on 29th weighing 7lb 13ozs, was a quick 6hour labour and very intense. Was 6cm dilated by the time I got to hospital! Would highly recommend the birthing ball, am convinced me bouncing on that all Monday evening did it! Had a massive bleed at midday and had to be kept in, lost 1.5 litres of blood. Managed to get home on Thursday night, just starting to feel back to normal and well again now! Hope your all ok, congratulations to all new arrivals and best wishes to all those still due!

congrats on all the new arrivals.

jaundice means being in an incubator with a special light and extra fluids. At first I was able to use almost entirely expressed milk and carry on feeding fairly normally, but as she wasn't getting better she needed more time in the incubator so I agreed to limit breastfeeding and add formula. She hated the incubator and it was tearing me in two not to be able to cuddle her when she cried. She has just come out this afternoon and it's like meeting her all over again grin Also now ok to breastfeed on demand without top ups. Next tests at 12 to see if she's still ok, I am desperate for her to be.

woody that sounds really horrible for you both, I so hope you are also out of there soon .

Florence Beatrice was born yesterday by emergency c section. still in hospital and have been here since Wednesday. the whole experience from beginning induction, attempted vb (heart rate dropped (Flossie's) and she needed blood taken from her head for analysis while she was still inside me and there was merconium in waters. Flossie is great but will never do this again

Salt - congratulations, a lovely name! Sorry you're feeling a bit 'never again ish'. It's ok to feel like that after such an ordeal, if sounds fierce. If you had another baby you'd be offered a planned section so you would have a different experience to this time. For mow thiugh just enjoy your lovely baby girl xxx

Congratulations Salt, I've been thinking about you. So glad your lovely baby girl is here safely and wish you a very speedy recovery, sounds like you had a terrible time. Xx

congratulations salt and sorry it was so stressful, it sounds awful. I hope you can go hone soon - we finally escaped last night having been in since thurs and it is a million times better.
