I think I need some positive thinking or a reality check!

With DD i planned a homebirth , however after four sweeps, the first three resulting in nothing I ended up being induced by having my waters broken as I wasn't progressing. Waters were clear but then dd got distressed and ended up in a drip. confused. I ended up on my back tied to a machine to monitor dd.

Cue DC2- now I'm 11 days over and planned home birth. I've had 3 sweeps. I had one yesterday and it did something with regular contractions but these have now fizzled out. Midwife said she could have broken my waters. By this one I was 3 cm and bishops score has gone from 6 to 8.

The plan is for another sweep Friday and go in the weekend to have my waters broken.

Aibu to just give up gracefully on a homebirth and accept nothing will happen until my waters are broken!?blush and to just suggest they do this today/Friday!?hmm

My second, a boy also had a hairy start. He's Oscar

Hurrah! Another vote for Barry! Are you persuaded, Peppa?

UnexpectedStepmum Sat 20-Jul-13 20:54:47

Wow well done! Biblically speaking the "hairy man" was called Esau. Too weird? Ok, another vote for Barry then.

Lovely to read this thread. My (big) second ds had a hairy entrance into the world too, I also described it as as a 'hairy start'. <snort>

Anyway, we called him Jenson.

You can borrow it if you like. wink

Congratulations. Xx

How about: Bernard, Bill, Geoff, Trevor, Dave?

I'm thinking that these names are going to be the next set of trendy ones!
