So am 38+5. Have had usual BH and twinges in evenings. I've got these tradesmen coming tomorrow and also my mum (by 12). Dh and I joked how inconvenient it would be to have dc1 come now... Totally had sex because that was an excellent idea... Went to loo and was really trickly from the not-wee area, you know when its not from the ureathra. A dailies liner didn't hack it. I'm now back in bed with a maxi always on from my labour bag... A few cramps, nothing much yet. More trickles when I laugh... Verdict mumsnet? How long? Think I can get to at least lunch when mum can manage tradesmen?
How exciting! I had similar with my 2nd and it was indeed the start of labour for me. If the pains stop you should still notify your hospital of the time you started leaking though, as they told me they would induce after 48hrs due to infection risk. As it turned out I didn't need it anyway though as my labour progressed naturally. Wishing you a safe, calm and happy labour - please come back and share your happy news when you get the chance!
Sorry to hear that. I was hoping for a water birth with both of mine but neither ended up that way. The first was because although labour was progressing well my contractions were irregular and they needed to monitor me closely. The second was because I had started leaking waters 24 hours previously so the risk of infection was there. I was disappointed, but to be fair I had safe deliveries with minimal pain relief, and would still say my experiences were overwhelmingly positive even though neither was as I had initially hoped.
Baby cat was born via induction with epidural and syncotin. Very good experience and was really proud of myself but got a thurs degree tear, and struggling to bf, so off to look up a few threads on those!
