Can't think straight- help! Am 39+ 4 today. Baby on small side so have been monitored , est 6lb at birth. 2nd dc was 8lb 4oz and a 2 hour labour from start to finish.
Started getting twinges about an hour and a half ago. Nothing to write home about- period pain type warm tightenings every 3-10 mins no patterns. Not that sore. No show waters
I am not ready to have this baby.
The bloody builder is downstairs cutting wood for skirting. He has been a disaster and has started other jobs we recommended for (before he became an arse) before finishing ours- using our house to cut wood, mix cement etc for this other job down the road while we were away waiting for him to finish. I don't want to be in labour upstairs with him down! Feel vulnerable The place is still a building site, we only moved in a week ago haven't unpacked, no built in furniture etc stuff In storage. Luckily dc1 in school (started on Monday!) until 3 and dc2 in nursery till 5pm
How did your 3r labour start? Like this or stop start?
Also, if your second only took two hours (mine was 3!) then maybe you need to ring midwife and get moving sooner rather than later - they can check your cervix, and monitor any contractions you are having to give you an idea what's going on.
First baby normal, nice delivery 5 hours start to finish Second Baby - dangerously fast shot out in just over 2 hours from first contraction. just go to hosp in time. start to finish. Third Baby - 3 days in hospital with labour starting/stopping/etc.
I've confused you haven't I! But you should call midwife as you have had a quick labour before.
Sorry I didn't update!! Dd2 was born at 3pm on the 13th in the birthing pool, in her caul! I was twingey all morning and established labour about 2 hours again but def more warning than last time. She is delicious! If only my builders were better... (I have totally identified myself but not a big poster, esp under this nickname)
