Last labour I was induced (DS born 40+15) and went straight for epidural as it was agony so have no idea what natural labour feels like. Planning a home birth this time and am 40 + 8 today. I need to go into labour before 40 + 14 to keep my home birth without a fight so am on high alert and not sure if I am now psyching myself into imagining labour symptoms ...
Had sweep on Wednesday. Lost the plug on Thursday but it wasn't bloody which I think is more indicative of labour to follow soon? Yesterday incredibly intense pelvic pressure all day.
This morning have intermittent dull back pain which hasn't gone after a hot bath.
Congratulations I love getting to a live birth thread late when the baby is already here I know it's a bit late, but my second labour was all in my pelvis too, I didn't really realise I was properly in labour until about 45 mins before she was born
