Honestly? Not really! Fair amount of pressure on my pelvis which is seriously aggravating the SPD, but no painful contractions or diarrhea/nausea/show/broken waters etc which is seriously aggravating DH!!!
Its so easy to be impatient when you won't actually have to go through the childbirth bit
We're debating the potential of a sweep, but I'm not sure the midwife will go for it at 40wks without some other indications.
Baby is moving around a lot during the day though, which is unusual, so I'm hoping it might mean he/she is either getting a bit prepared or is as uncomfortable as I am lol
I had an attempted sweep at 40+1...cervix was still closed and high but it might be worth asking her to have a look just so you know where things stand. If its favourable then you know to start bouncing on a birth ball/ long walks etc.
Don't be disheartened though, a few days after my sweep DH and I had sex in the morning (first time in months!), and by the evening I was in labour!
PHeebs, fingers crossed it all does get going for you very soon! And I did a bit of a smirky face re. your DH - mine has similar attitude, including the "oh it was all such hard work, the labour, I'm shattered now" - like he did anything!! I didn't even get to squish his hands this time (although, fair play, he did offer), just whapped him in the belly with the G&A tube when I thought I could hear him shushing me while I was wailing into it. He denied it, of course but I'm sure someone was going "shh, shh, shh" and being whapped was necessary.
Pheebs, so sorry to hear about your DH's Nan. Its really difficult to make these decisions. But perhaps it's better to not risk the home birth you want and stay put for a few days more, especially if you feel better supported by your own family? how far is it to travel, could Dh do the round trip in a long day while someone else is on call in case you need them?
How did it go at the MW this morning? In my area they do a sweep at 40wks automatically which is helpful if you really want to get things moving... hope things happen for you soon x
Ha, thumb your DH has the same attitude as mine - he fell asleep on the hospital bed with DS on his tummy - his only instructions were to look after DS while i had a shower i couldnt wake him and stayed awake holding DS while he slept!! Ah well, he's getting into the swing of it now
I felt better after a bit more sleep
The MW doesn't want to do anything before Tuesday (I'll be 41+2) and then another sweep Thurs followed by induction at the weekend if the sweeps don't work
DH has said he won't go until the baby's here unless its absolutely urgent, and even then it'll be on his own which is a relief - so I'm now just trying to be positive and think that she could be ok for a while yet. Fx baby comes this weekend - I sooooo don't want to end up in hospital!!
Positive thoughts... positive thoughts... positive thoughts
Hi pinpan you must be a psychic - you posted at about the time I found out I was in established labour!!
All's well, and just heading to the post-natal thread - woop woop lol
