Nearly 35 weeks now. Loads of pain in pelvis and pressure like it's 'full'.
Woken up today and can't stop pooing (sorry for tmi) but not upset stomach iykwim.
Strong uncomfortable braxton hicks every 20 mins.
Just been feeling generally crap last few days, no energy and like I'm coming down with something.
Can't sleep properly and all of a sudden feel very pregnant.

Just a self indulgent wail really as I can't do this for possibly 7 more weeks- I'll lose the plot!!

Ginger I keep being told ' all you need is a good shag a hot bath a hot curry and pineapple'
try it and see if it works grin

couldn't sleep much. Nervous, scared and excited about being induced. Closer to the time I will be shitting it! not literally lol

how is everyone

GingerRodgers Sat 16-Aug-14 09:04:29

Is it your induction today ilove? Good luck if so!
I don't like Indian as I'm not a fan of spicy or sauce covered foods can't they make chocolate that induces labour but willing to try pineapple and shagging. Have heard nipple stimulation is meant to work.

Feeling very mean and unreasonable as dh has dd and she's being a pain in the arse for him and I'm a bit happy about it. Don't really want her to be but maybe now he'll see being this pregnant and dealing with her isn't 'life of Riley' he thinks it it!

ilovemonstersinc Sat 16-Aug-14 11:08:18

Yep its induction day for me!

Dh has been extra cuddly today.... hes feeing it too!

Let him deal with something ginger! Its tough! I love it when the kids do that for dh and I cant be bothered to get up as my excuse is im pregnant and tired leave me alone lol

GingerRodgers Sat 16-Aug-14 13:05:28

Good luck!! Hope it goes really well for you. Keep us updated if you can. Eeek! grin

Im in bed, on monitor 2ish cm dilated but cervix still high so needed the gel to bring it down. If it would have been a bit lower then could have gone delivery for waters to be broken.
Contractions are now painful need another 10 mins on monitor before I can get up anf move around

ilovemonstersinc Sat 16-Aug-14 18:47:36

Now every 4ish mins apart! Hope they stay like that.
Had a bit of bleeding.
Baby is back to back and that's where all pain is atm!

GingerRodgers Sat 16-Aug-14 19:25:16

Thanks for updating ilove, bless you- all in the name of mn eh?! grin
Was wondering how you were getting on.
Come on baby love!!

Well I've given in and dh is ordering Indian as we speak. I'm beyond not looking forward to it, desperate for a dominos but more desperate for a baby!
Me and dd went for a long walk this afternoon, lots of marching and singing to 'grand old duke of York' much to the amusement of passers-by grin.
Lots of back pain and VERY sore pelvis but that's it hmm so bouncing on the ball for a bit.

ilovemonstersinc Sat 16-Aug-14 22:31:29

As I was reading your post I was bouncing on a ball. At 10.30pm hmm

these pains are bastard of pains but doing nothing. Still 2cm cervix is still back so if cervix was down a little they could transfer me to deliver for waters to be broken. Due another dose of the gel at 11.50. So will try and get some sleep.
Next time I want a elcs!

Im more than likely to be having an epi!

ilovemonstersinc Sun 17-Aug-14 11:55:23

Babys heart rate is high again. Highest 217 with decels. The monitor keeps saying the trace is abnormal senior review is urgently required sad
Shes gone to ask dr. Only had1 lot of gel. Doubt thry will give more.

GingerRodgers Sun 17-Aug-14 12:10:51

I'm currently in hospital and they've induced me... 3 weeks earlier then DD but I have pre eclampsia... No wonder I've been feeling so rotten. I've had the first bit of hormone gel... And I'm hoping to get some sleep soon... Hope you're all doing well smile

ilovemonstersinc Wed 20-Aug-14 11:44:43

Well I will keep popping in to check out how your doing

Babyfishcakes Thu 21-Aug-14 17:26:52

Hi... I thought now that it's abit more settled I'll give you an update... I was induced Tuesday evening. I was in established labour by 6am Wednesday but I wasn't dilating. They did a second dose of the inducing gel which ramped up the contractions to the full on but still no dilation. I was getting them at full strength at a minute long every 2 minutes...So after 28 hours they decided to stop it all... They wanted to give me pethiden but I declined for personal reasons. My contractions are easing off now as the gel is wearing off and it looks like I'll be having a caesarean tomorrow. I'm absolutely exhausted but atleast there is a light at the end of the tunnel... I've now been given my own ensuite room and the doctors all came in to say this doesn't normally happen... I'm just abit unlucky...

ilovemonstersinc Fri 22-Aug-14 08:06:57

Babyfish hope all goes well and if it makes you feel any better that happened to me but when the contractions were too much to bear I was told to have a bath and and given paracetamol and a birthing ball!
I had dilated 2cm before having the gel (over period of 2 weeks) and so the gel did fuck all apart from make me feel shit.

As 1sr lot of gel hypersrimulated me they put me on the list for delivery for waters to be broken. That took 3days!

Ginger how are you?
Hows lairy qnd baby?
