I'm exactly 40 weeks today and had my first contraction at about 9pm this evening.

I wouldn't have normally thought I was in labour (lots of umming and ahhing over the past two weeks) but since my first pain I've been on the loo 4 times and its what I can only think of as a 'clear out'.

Contraction every 20-25 minutes, lasting around 20 seconds so think I'm in for a loooong night.

lougle Tue 11-Jun-13 23:16:37

Rest while you can grin

HappyGoLuckyGirl Tue 11-Jun-13 23:17:46

Im bouncing on my ball at the min - terrified of getting into bed and my contractions stopping!

Exciting! Is this your first? I agree, rest while you can- if this is the real thing then resting won't stop it. Is your bag all packed?

welshfirsttimemummy Tue 11-Jun-13 23:42:00

Good luck!! grin

HappyGoLuckyGirl Wed 12-Jun-13 00:14:40

Yep first baby and everything is done, all bags packed etc!

My contractions seem to have stopped now sad gutted. Hoping I'm going to wake up with regular ones in the morning.

Hope you had an ok night.

farmersdaughter Wed 12-Jun-13 09:45:55

Ohhh how exciting.

Get plenty of rest, you'll need it later.

Hope you are feeling okay today? Have you spoken with your MW?

farmersdaughter Wed 12-Jun-13 17:57:01

Any update OP???

HappyGoLuckyGirl Wed 12-Jun-13 20:45:26

Hi everyone!

Contractions completely stopped last night and haven't had any more today sad

Going for a sweep tomorrow at 11am so hopefully that will get things going properly.

Has anyone else had a successful sweep?

I had two unsuccessful sweeps but that was because my cervix was still firmly closed and high. As I understand it, a sweep will only work if your cervix is favourable. So if you're not far off starting labour anyway then the sweep may be all you need to push you over the edge. Fingers crossed! Come back and update us. Good luck smile

Angelik Wed 12-Jun-13 22:20:32

the midwife shouldn't do a sweep if cervix not favourable as not only is it pointless but will be bloody painful!

I had sweep 3pm on monday, contracted for a bit that night (this was a regular feature in my pregnancy in the last couple of months after a threatened pre term labour at 32 weeks) but these died off. odd, sporadic contractions the next day then at midnight on tuesday. ..whoosh! 3 biggies in 10 minutes. my dh suggested phoning the hospital and i said sulkily that there wasn't any point as it would stop in a minute. fast forward 3 and half hours and i was holding my dd in my arms. so if your body is ready it will probably work.

Good luck!

HappyGoLuckyGirl Wed 12-Jun-13 23:15:48

Fingers crossed I'm favourable then. May jump on DP for good measure afterwards grin

I'll let you know how I get on (with the sweep, not the jumping!)

HappyGoLuckyGirl Thu 13-Jun-13 12:30:17

Good afternoon all smile

Sweep went fine, no where near as bad as some people had told me!

Cervix slightly posterior but very soft and about 1cm dilated so hopefully will set me off.

Got my induction date booked just in case, 23rd June. Hoping I wont need it.

Angelik Fri 14-Jun-13 08:44:03

you've gone quiet. does that mean all systems are/were go?

farmersdaughter Fri 14-Jun-13 15:38:14

Sending lots of positive 'baby get out' vibes to you Happy.

If you can keep us updated. X

HappyGoLuckyGirl Fri 14-Jun-13 20:29:25

I'm so fed up sad

Absolutely nothing has happened since my sweep apart from falling over and spraining my ankle!

So now I have a mighty good limp to go with my waddle.

Feeling thoroughly miserable. sad

Oh bless you, I remember how fed up I was when I was overdue. You've got loads of time before your induction date, fx that you get going on your own well before then x

lookingfoxy Fri 14-Jun-13 23:36:00

I'm so fed up as well and a complete misery to be around, twice I've been sure that's things starting then its not. I feel your pain !!!

HappyGoLuckyGirl Sat 15-Jun-13 03:03:46

When are you due, foxy?

lookingfoxy Sun 16-Jun-13 00:13:37

Hi I'm not due until Wednesday but have convinced myself I'll go early because it's my 2nd even though I was 8 days late first time !! Can you feel my desperation for this baby to arrive !!grin

HappyGoLuckyGirl Sun 16-Jun-13 00:23:12

Desperation is a strong motivator!

I've said that he would come about 41 weeks ish so he's got a few days to prove me wrong right grin

My induction date is a week tomorrow so I'm resigning myself to not going naturally. Trying to bluff my body into labour grin

lookingfoxy Sun 16-Jun-13 01:40:19

At least you'll have a week at most then, hopefully things may get going sooner for you
I'm at hosp on Monday and midwife said hopefully can do sweep if cervix right !
I thought last few weeks were the worst, I must have blocked the last few days from memory.

HappyGoLuckyGirl Sun 16-Jun-13 12:06:59

Yeah and if he comes before then its a bonus.

Oh, good luck for Monday then, hope all goes well and it sets you off smile

Sending both of you labour vibes for this week smile

HappyGoLuckyGirl Mon 17-Jun-13 11:31:26

Thanks milkmonster. Getting stabby cervix pains on and off but no contractions or show sad

Good luck today Foxy, hope all goes well.

farmersdaughter Mon 17-Jun-13 18:42:20

Go Happy Go.....

lookingfoxy Mon 17-Jun-13 23:30:35

Thanks, had sweep today and was 3cm, very crampy tonight so have taken paracetamol and going to try to sleep, they will pop my waters on Friday if I'm not away by then .

HappyGoLuckyGirl Mon 17-Jun-13 23:32:58

Ooo, that's brilliant news!

You're almost in established labour, all without even noticing! well done grin

Exciting foxy! I bet your baby is here before Friday smile

lookingfoxy Tue 18-Jun-13 11:05:44

Hopefully! ! Getting crampy again and feel a bit strange so going for a wee nap to conserve energy.
How's it going happy? I've been getting stabby cervix pains as well, bet your not far behind!

HappyGoLuckyGirl Tue 18-Jun-13 16:30:42

Just the stabby cervix pains really, coupled with period pains.

Any news foxy?

lookingfoxy Tue 18-Jun-13 20:33:15

No news here, definitely sounds like early stage labour for you though.

HappyGoLuckyGirl Tue 18-Jun-13 23:39:10

I'm not convinced. They keep stopping and starting but without regularity sad

Got another sweep booked in for Thursday so hopefully m/w will tell me I've progressed a bit.

Assuming your sweep didn't work then?

lookingfoxy Wed 19-Jun-13 01:22:09

Guess not sad I also have another booked on thursday though so hoping that works before having to get waters broke on Friday.
So frustrating lol, I am taking some comfort that I am not alone.

HappyGoLuckyGirl Wed 19-Jun-13 11:14:59

I've got another on Thursday too! Fingers crossed for us both grin

HappyGoLuckyGirl Wed 19-Jun-13 11:17:08

I just realised I'd already told you about my sweep on Thursday...I'm tired, that's my excuse grin

MrsMargoLeadbetter Wed 19-Jun-13 11:57:03

Sorry to see you are both waiting. sad Have been watching this thread and hoping to see baby news.

Can I ask how painful your sweeps were? Will be 40+4 tomorrow, so think they might give me a sweep. Didn't have one last time.

DD was 84centile at last growth scan at 36 wks so don't want to go too far over in case she is a whopper!

Sending you positive birth vibes.

lookingfoxy Wed 19-Jun-13 12:11:30

Its baby brain happy lol.
My sweep wasn't painful at all, it was more the thought of what it is that had me squirming.
I'm a bit prudish and squemish tbh. It is different for everyone though, good luck.

MrsMargoLeadbetter Wed 19-Jun-13 12:52:43

Thanks looking. Good to hear.

Somebody in my husband's team (who has a number of dc) made a sort of speedy circular motion with her finger in the air whilst relaying info about her sweeps to him! Made my DH v squirmy confused

HappyGoLuckyGirl Wed 19-Jun-13 15:23:19

Haha, that made me grin Margo.

The sweep I had didn't bother me at all. No pain, just slightly uncomfortable.

Looks like we're all in the same boat. Boo!

I keep getting phone calls, text messages and fb messages "any news/have you had him/my god, you're still pregnant?"

AGHRRR angry angry I've taken to ignoring them, I don't care if it's rude, it's better than telling them to FO!

I've been ridiculously irritable the past two days, I woke up yesterday and just wanted to plant DP, poor bloke.

We need these babies out nowwww!

MrsMargoLeadbetter Wed 19-Jun-13 15:29:28

Thanks for the sweep info.

I know the messages are annoying but there is part of me that is so bored I am enjoying having some form of human contact! But yes, if we'd have had the baby we would have said!!!

I find waking up still pregnant the most depressing part of the day. I am hoping for a nighttime water breaking!

Start watching a box set?????

HappyGoLuckyGirl Wed 19-Jun-13 16:19:28

My standard reply now is "oh, he arrived a couple of days ago, we've just been keeping him in the sock drawer" grin

Think I might have to Margo, either that or plan a trip somewhere far away and forget my notes wink

lookingfoxy Wed 19-Jun-13 20:20:44

Looks like we've all got sweeps tomorrow ill be crossing my fingers for all of us.
I'm getting embarrassed by still being pregnant as i've been telling everyone 'any day now' forwhat seems like forever grin

MrsMargoLeadbetter Wed 19-Jun-13 20:48:40

Midwife fingers not to be crossed though grin

I know. It does feel like a bit of a "burden" - everybody's expectations. I know they are just interested/care etc.

I feel I look like a freak and about 10 months preggers!

Let's hope 1 of us gets going. Odds must be in favour of 1 out of 3 (I think) responding to a sweep!?@?

Labour vibes...labour vibes...labour vibes....

Good luck to the three of you! Will check back tomorrow hoping for news smile

HappyGoLuckyGirl Thu 20-Jun-13 08:46:40

Any news ladies? Oh dear, I'm turning into one of those annoying people! shock

I'm still very much pregnant sad even got DP to DTD last night, to no avail.

Sunday creeps ever closer! At least you don't have to wait much longer Foxy, they will break your waters tomorrow won't they?

Is having your waters broken a more natural way of induction than pessary/drip? And what I mean is does it hurt less grin

Heard lots of horror stories about induction. It's a lot more painful as the contractions come on full force straight away? eek.

lookingfoxy Thu 20-Jun-13 09:35:53

Leaving in 5 min for sweep I'm not holding out much hope of it working though.
Yes I think popping my waters is the least intrusive way of being induced. I don't know if it hurts less or not, a sweep was enough to set me off last time.
If contractions don't start after that though I think it moves on to other stuff though. (Scaredy cat face).
Well good luck hopefully one of us will have something positive to report.

lookingfoxy Thu 20-Jun-13 09:37:14

Whats dtd? Is it that thing that got us in in trouble in the first placen grin

MrsMargoLeadbetter Thu 20-Jun-13 11:54:17

Hi happy and looking sorry to hear nothing is occuring....

My sweep was really incomfortable but the consultant was great and carried on despite my cries! Poor ladies waiting outside!

Consultant said it is a 50% chance of success. I just googled and there does seem to be a balance of success vs no success stories.

He also put my mind at rest about baby's size, he said scans have a 20% error and that babies don't grow much in last few days etc.

Booked for an induction next Thurs.

Leaflet I have been given suggests they decide on seeing you which route to take; prostin, rupture or oxytocin.

How you both feeling about possible induction?

lookingfoxy Thu 20-Jun-13 14:12:06

I had a good chat with the consultant about the induction this morning after I had a mini meltdown about it leading to epidurals and forceps blush was properly sobbing, thanks hormones! !
I'm feeling quite relaxed about it now after being told ill still be encouraged to move around, be upright and gravity is the way to go etc. She said they definitely do not like intervention.

Sorry your sweep was painful, I know it is for some people but didn't want to scare you.
Fingers crossed it works for you, it definitely did for me first time round.

lookingfoxy Thu 20-Jun-13 14:22:38

Oh and order of induction is break waters first, apparently there is a very high chance this will set off the contractions straight off. My cervix is apparently very ready. They will wait a maximum of 3 hrs then put me on the drip if the contractions don't start. She said this shouldn't be more painful and I should be able to avoid an epidural.
She then said if I walk into the hospital tomorrow and change my mind I can leg it and they'll just monitor me for a while longer, but would prefer I didn't !!

HappyGoLuckyGirl Thu 20-Jun-13 15:00:40

Glad you both managed to have your sweeps, fingers crossed that it works!

Yes foxy, dtd = doing the dance. Definitely what got us into trouble in the first place. My theory was what got him in there will get him out but nope sad

Didn't know the odds on sweeps were that favourable, I heard it was 1 in 7 that works. Maybe it depends on the woman in question?

Hmm, I'm just waiting for my sweep now, m/w is running a bit behind. Hopefully I will have made some progress so if I do have to be induced I'll be able to ask for rupture.

My main concern is having to be monitored constantly sad really want to try for an active birth.

Still no show or anything ladies?

HappyGoLuckyGirl Thu 20-Jun-13 15:06:14

Margo - your consultant is probably right you know, bubs stopped growing at my last appointment. Measured 38 at 38 and 40 weeks. Although that could be because he dropped right down into my pelvis?

They always manage to keep us guessing!

Foxy - I know what you mean about being tempted to refuse induction. I would really like to get to 42 weeks at least but I want to meet him already! That and I don't think I can cope being pregnant for any longer than I have to! grin

lookingfoxy Thu 20-Jun-13 17:26:24

I'm desperate to meet this one as well, just wish the stork really did just drop them off lol.
Dr said I can still be active even if induced as I wont be actually attached to anything until contractions start and even then they have wireless monitors.
Hoping your sweep is starting things !!

HappyGoLuckyGirl Thu 20-Jun-13 18:17:06

That's good news, at least you'll be able to stay active and keep gravity on your side!

Oh and I take back what I said about sweeps! The one I had last week was like a feather tickle compared to the one I had today! She really got in there, rummaged around for a good couple of minutes, said she was pulling my cervix forward and giving it a good stretch. It was much more uncomfortable than the last one and was verging on being painful! Thinking about it, that's probably why my last one didn't work, it wasn't forceful enough.

Had a little bit of bloody discharge but no show, m/w said I should expect one soon as she was so vigorous. I feel very heavy and comfortable down there now so fingers crossed it will start me off.

How have you reacted to yours?

MrsMargoLeadbetter Thu 20-Jun-13 18:28:07

Looking great that you feel reassured about lack of intervention. At this stage it is really helpful to meet a healthcare professional who says what you want to hear and puts you at ease, gives you confidence about the process.

Sorry to hear of the sobbing but I am sure they are used to it! Sounds like the conditions are favourable with a 'ready cervix'. Hopefully waters going will be all your need!

I wasn't making a comment about what you'd said about pain and the sweep. I appreciated the feedback and I know everyone is different. My pain threshold is rubbish (esp anything 'down there', had an epi with DS as was shaking with pain), but consultant was good at counting me down to the end. I just kept thinking "50% success"!!

Best of luck tomorrow. Hopefully you'll be able to post a 'I have had the baby' update tomorrow/Sat. Have everything crossed for you.

Happy hope your sweep has started to work....any changes?

Cannot say I have seen much change, a few twinges and a tiny bit of show. Have been stood up cleaning for a bit to try to help with gravity. Just really tired, so not keen on doing too much as I am hoping to save my energy for labour - yeah right!!?!?

And yes, not keen on being pregnant any longer than I need to!

lookingfoxy Thu 20-Jun-13 20:42:40

Sorry margo I thought this was your first, my brain is fried. I'm a bit of a wreck just now knowing this is happening tomorrow.
Happy hopefully thst good rummage will work soon!!!
Can't wait for the amnesia hormones to kick in afterwards lol.

HappyGoLuckyGirl Thu 20-Jun-13 22:20:06

What time are you going in tomorrow foxy? I'm excited for you!

MrsMargoLeadbetter Thu 20-Jun-13 22:39:06

Me too Looking. Do you have books/mags? There might be time to pass etc.

Good luck. thanks

Hope the sweep takes effect overnight Happy. Sounds like the MW gave it her best!! Ouch.

HappyGoLuckyGirl Thu 20-Jun-13 23:52:23

Thanks! Although I can't help but be pessimistic sad

Has your sweep had any affect Margo?

lookingfoxy Fri 21-Jun-13 05:31:19

Headin for hospital as soon as ds dropped at school.
Hopefully my next post will be very different.
And hopefully there will be news from you two as well grin

MrsMargoLeadbetter Fri 21-Jun-13 07:45:45

Good luck Looking!!

Happy no, nothing occuring here. Tiny bit of darker discharge but hardly a show..Did have a few pains in the night but not contractions.

Thinking I ought to try to stay active today. Sat watching films yesterday. Although might let DH do the school run, not sure I can face the questions/jokes/remarks. Reflexologist coming at 2.

What about you? Any signs overnight? Anything you can do today to take your mind off it?

HappyGoLuckyGirl Fri 21-Jun-13 10:27:33

Hello ladies!

I'm in labour grin although not sure that should be such a happy face as it actually smarts quite a bit!

Woke up with contractions about 5am this morning, coming roughly every 3-4 mins and lasting 50 seconds or so.

Foxy, hope your ARM went well and you're well on the way to holding your little one.

Margo - any more signs?

MrsMargoLeadbetter Fri 21-Jun-13 10:32:24

Wonderful news Happy so delighted for you!!! Sorry it hurting though.

What are the next steps?

How exciting! Thanks for the update. Was thinking about you.

Nothing heresad

farmersdaughter Fri 21-Jun-13 10:34:28

Brilliant.....

Good luck Happy xxxxx

HappyGoLuckyGirl Fri 21-Jun-13 11:15:24

Thank you grin

I rang triage who advised bath and paracetamol. Had a bath earlier and have been getting on with my tens machine.

Contractions are roughly a minute long now but have slowed down to 6-8mins, hoping I'm not in for a long day and night.

Gutted your sweep didn't work! How many days over are you now?

MrsMargoLeadbetter Fri 21-Jun-13 12:55:25

Ooh it is all real now!

Hope they pick up again soon. And that the pain is bearable.

Was due Mon, so not "that" overdue compared to some. Went 5 days over with DS, so was assuming something similar so finding idea of inductions (albeit next Thurs) a bit of a shock. However, there are 6 days until then!

How exciting! grin

I bet you won't be too far behind the other two margo

HappyGoLuckyGirl Fri 21-Jun-13 17:10:48

My contractions have stopped! sad they slowed right down around 12pm so decided to take a nap and now they have stopped!

Only 10% of women don't go into labour by themselves by 42 weeks Margo so the odds are in your favour smile

MrsMargoLeadbetter Fri 21-Jun-13 22:11:56

Oh no Happy! Have they started again?

Thanks for the stat on getting going, hoping we are in the 90%!!

HappyGoLuckyGirl Fri 21-Jun-13 22:31:59

Yeah, they've started again but are a bit irregular. Will probably stay at home tonight and go in tomorrow, all being well.

Not heard from foxy today, maybe she's at the hospital having newborn snuggles!

MrsMargoLeadbetter Sat 22-Jun-13 10:16:36

Hello Happy and Looking thinking of you. Hope there is a good update for you soon smile

Nothing happening here. Going to help DP with some painting in a mo, been very lazy past 2 days need to get gravity on my side!

HappyGoLuckyGirl Sat 22-Jun-13 15:25:56

Oh my God...WHY does no one tell you how awful labour is?! and I'm not even in established labour yet! sad sad

something2say Sat 22-Jun-13 16:03:01

Aww good luck sweetheart, you'll be fine. X thinking of you. What are you up to? Walking about? In the bath?

Hope things speed up for you soon happy, sounds like you're coping really well so far though smile

wickeddevil Sat 22-Jun-13 17:13:43

Good luck all of you x

Badgerwife Sat 22-Jun-13 18:58:14

Hello everyone!

I thought I would join in as I'm 40+1 and have had contractions on and off since yesterday morning. It's the slowest build-up EVER, as they've kept on dying off and starting again, and I'm now on every 10 minutes, fairly painful but only lasting 40 seconds max.

The tricky bit is that despite this being my second, I haven't really done this at home before, as I had to be induced last time after my waters broke and stayed the course in hospital. So the whole thing is complete guesswork and I'm trying not to panic about babysitting!

MrsMargoLeadbetter Sat 22-Jun-13 21:58:39

Thanks for all the good wishes.

My waters broke this am exactly 48 hours after my sweep. Went into hospital at midday as pain was becoming too much.

Was very relieved to be given an epidural. DD arrived at 18:30ish. She is a very lovely 10lb whopper!

Happy and Looking thinking of you.

Badger same here, went straight in last time. But actually managed 2 hours at home (am a wuss so knew it wouldn't be longer before I was in hosp begging for an epi).

Found 'Contraction App' good to help me time things. Good luck.

wickeddevil Sat 22-Jun-13 22:00:42

Congratulations Margo on the birth of your DD. hope you are all doing well x

fengirl1 Sat 22-Jun-13 22:02:20

MML, congratulations, and HGLG, my first labour was like this second one shot out like a rocket and would have been born at home if my membranes weren't so tough rest lots, eat what you can.

Congratulations margo! I love how you said nothing was happening and less than 24hrs later you have your baby smile Enjoy your snuggles with your new DD!

lookingfoxy Sun 23-Jun-13 03:00:33

Congratulations margo, my dd arrived at 18.46pm yesterday! !
I ended up on the drip as breaking my waters didn't really bring on regular contractions. I managed on gas and air and got some morphine about 10 mins before dd arrived, wee bit late forbthe birth but didn't need paracetamol afterwards for a while lol.
Hoping happys silence means baby is enroute!

lookingfoxy Sun 23-Jun-13 03:03:37

Yesterday being Friday, I'm still in a fuddle lol.

something2say Sun 23-Jun-13 10:29:16

Congratulations on your little cancer babies! Very happy for you.

Congratulations foxy smile

MrsMargoLeadbetter Mon 24-Jun-13 09:47:01

Thanks for the nice messages. Am very in love with her.

Congrats Looking. Sounds like you really well to mainly manage on gas and air!

Hoping Happy has her baby too...

lookingfoxy Tue 25-Jun-13 00:25:59

I know margo, hoping all ok with happy.
I didn't manage that well, gas and air and a lot of screaming lol.
They are so adorable though, I can't stop staring at her.

HappyGoLuckyGirl Tue 25-Jun-13 00:48:05

Hi ladies!

well done and congratulations to the both of you! grin

well the contractions that I was having from friday morning weren't really doing much (other than causing pain) so ended up being induced Sunday morning anyway.

I was given the the propess at 9am and left to have baths, use tens etc. At about 6pm I was examined and found to be favourable for ARM, so off I popped to delivery suite.

Started on gas and air then had a shot of diamorphine (brilliant stuff) then I had my waters broken at about 10.30pm.

Shortly after that Baby's heart rate started to dip and stayed dangerously low (ranging from 50-100 bpm) so I was pretty much whisked into theatre for an emergency section.

Samuel was born at 23.18 and despite the horrific pain and the frightening way he arrived, he is the most perfect, amazing and downright gorgeous little person I have ever laid eyes on.

I cannot even fathom how much my heart must have grown over the past day to accommodate for the sheer volume of love I have for him.

I'm the luckiest woman in the world. grin

SugarandSpice126 Tue 25-Jun-13 01:00:05

Congratulations!!

lookingfoxy Tue 25-Jun-13 11:09:58

Aw congratulations, as long as you are both safe and well that is the main thing.
Its an amazing feeling when they arrive x

MrsMargoLeadbetter Tue 25-Jun-13 22:13:37

Awww Happy so glad to hear Samuel is here safely. Sorry your labour wasn't as maybe hoped, but it sounds like you are on cloud 9.

Enjoy your babies ladies. Thanks for your support and thoughts.

farmersdaughter Wed 26-Jun-13 14:06:13

Arghhhhhhh lovely. Glad Master Happy has arrived safe and well xx

Great news, congratulations! smile

Badgerwife Thu 27-Jun-13 10:58:53

congrats everyone! Baby Lucie here was born on Sunday 23rd at 11.41am.

TMI bit: She's doing fab, I'm doing ok, although I only got home yesterday due to, wait for it, not a tear but a varicose vein on my labia exploding due to my way too efficient pushing (by the way, the improvements to the epidural are Amazing, no pain but you have full control over the pushing, just fab) and requiring stitching and waiting for the swelling to subside. You do not want this!! But i've recovered well and there is nothing like sleeping in your own bed.

HappyGoLuckyGirl Thu 27-Jun-13 14:02:16

Wow badger, that sounds quite surreal!!

Well done on getting baby out safe and sound and congratulations grin

How are we all doing with our bundles of joy?

Baby Sam is just amazing. He is truly the greatest thing I have ever done in all my life grin he feeds and sleeps amazingly well during the day but tends to take less milk and wake more frequently during the night. That aside, however, everything is going well. His eyes watching me whilst I'm feeding him or just holding him is just pure magic.
