Anyone up still?

First baby, due tomorrow and I think I've gone into labour...

Now I'm shit scared!

Had a very light trickle sensation... Nothing odd but changed pad. Clear goo... Back ache and a little cramping which I think is what period pains felt like.... Only had two so far... Also (tmi alert) needed urgent poo!

Ooooooooh I think so!! Good luck! You'll be great! Just think of that beautiful baby at the end of it smile

Could well be, try and get as much sleep as you can.
If it really is labour, nothing will stop it.
Do you have anyone with you?

Tideaftertide Tue 29-Dec-15 02:16:15

DH is snoring next to me... Trying to turn my head off.

Been uncomfortable for days now and wishing for baby to be out... Now it's finally here I'm scared!

I hope this is it for you.

Don't be scared, your body knows what it's doing, even if you don't.

I can join I with you.

I think I'm in labour too.
This is second ds and I'm still scared!! I'm 41+1 today and my contractions started getting more painful and more regular about 11pm. I took some paracetamol at 12 and am in bed but think I'm going to get up as I can't sleep- they're too painful. I'm praying this is real Labour as if it's more braxton hicks I'm not going to survive the pain!!

I passed my plug yesterday and more tonight, then upset stomach then contractions.

How are you feeling now?

I'm now trying to download a ctx timer....

Back aches! Forgot what period pain was... Now I remember!!!!

Welcome mummybear1984

Mummybear1984 Tue 29-Dec-15 03:38:04

I struggle to time them- keep missing the beginning!!

Have given up on sleep and now in the living room on my ball watching the secret life of 6 year olds. Just eaten some crisps as I was hungry.

How have I forgotten how painful it is!

How are you feeling now?

Tideaftertide Tue 29-Dec-15 03:57:08

I'm good! Glad you're ok!

I'm still in the early early stages! Don't even know why I'm scared really.

35 mins apart and feeling like "why am I fussing?" Then another comes along and it's horrid!

Glad we can keep each other company! What a lonely time of day!

Good luck both of you! I'm up with my 4 month old ds, I can remember going into labour like it was yesterday. Mine was a very long process in the early stages and looking back I wish I had got some more sleep so I wasn't so tired by the time active labour came along.

Downloading an app is also a great idea as timing contractions gave dh something to do!

Just think- soon you will meet your beautiful babies smile

Mummybear1984 Tue 29-Dec-15 04:34:51

I think I've been in early labour for about 3 weeks!! Had so many tightenings and braxton hicks and I didn't have any with my son.

Mine are approx 5-6 mins apart now. Feel tired but can't get comfortable, bouncing on my ball is helping and I'm now watching frozen to take my mind off it!

Trying to wait another hour then think il have a bath.

Can you try and get some sleep as it could be a very long time and you will need the energy x

Mummybear1984 Tue 29-Dec-15 04:35:57

I'm looking forward to being awake for feeding baby rather than the insomnia of late pregnancy.

I can't wait until baby arrives- just want him in my arms now!! X

Tideaftertide Tue 29-Dec-15 04:44:35

I am sooooo uncomfortable. Need DH to stop snoring or go downstairs to living room!

Every time baby moves it hurts so am getting confused as to contraction of pressure... Will try and sleep!

5-6mins!? Can't even imagine. Great news...

Persephone76 Tue 29-Dec-15 04:58:08

Good luck! This was me 9 days ago, hope all goes well and you meet your babies soon smile

How are you doing?

Just had a really bad one! Still at home but the last one almost made me explode! Wanted to throw up and everything! Normal!?

toopeoply Tue 29-Dec-15 05:19:33

Good luck both of you! And yes wanting to vomit is definitely normal. Have you called labour ward?

Junosmum Tue 29-Dec-15 06:31:41

Ooh. Good luck both. Please update us once baby is here!.I'm in the "will you just get out" phase of late pregnancy!

Mrscog Tue 29-Dec-15 06:39:58

Mummy bear just a warning my 2nd labour went from 'oohi think this is ramping up' to having a baby in less than an hour. I almost had him in the hospital lobby. Don't fuck about with 2nd labours! Call the delivery suite!

PositivePete Tue 29-Dec-15 06:54:17

I threw up with the pain of contracting .....

Nearly there grin

SweepTheHalls Tue 29-Dec-15 06:55:32

Been up since 3, CS tomorrow, good luck to you!

Justputyourshoesonnow Tue 29-Dec-15 07:56:05

MrsJK Tue 29-Dec-15 08:38:25
