Is thus your first baby?

This, not thus!

Hand hold. Is this your first baby ? Remember every contraction is one closer to meeting your baby flowers

I was induced with DC1. I had three pessaries which didn't really work, but gave me period type pain. My second pessary was at night too, like yours. I got some paracetamol and therefore some sleep, would advise you do the same if possible.

On the plus side, once they started me on a drip I delivered with 7 hours, so pretty quickly really

Good luck OP.

It is my first and this is dreadful. I don't think I can do it. Feeling in so much pain X

You can do it OP. I was induced with DD three weeks ago, it's tough but you will get there.
I found the early bit the worst, try to focus on your breathing if you can. I blew out a golden thread with each contraction, a long smooth exhale over some green hills. Later the gas and air really helped, have you had any pain relief?
I know it's hard to imagine but it won't be long until you can meet your baby.

Hi everyone. Thank you for those reassuring posts. I thought I would update you and say I gave birth to a beautiful baby girl on 17th March. It was 24 hour labour ending in an emergency c section. Quite an ordeal! But she arrived safe and is amazing. Xxxxx
