Hi all,

I'm in hospital being induced today. Would anyone like to keep me company? Being in hospital is so boring! Had the pessary half an hour ago, nothing happening yet. hmm

How are you getting on now Helen?

Had some contractions for an hour or so, they've stopped again. Going to go for a walk and see if I can restart them. I really hope I'm not in here for days. hmm

Best of luck! Sounds promising that you got contractions soon after first pessary. Is it your first baby?

HelenF35 Tue 30-Jun-15 20:21:06

Yes first one. I was 1cm dilated when we started so it's a start grin Cervix is still long though. Just had a contraction now so am hoping that's them restarting smile

Excellent. I was induced a year ago almost to the day. Pessary at 5pm and was 9cm by 8am. It gets lonely labouring overnight being induced. Hope you have people to chat to and something to watch or read.

I hope mine is quick too. I've had a friend in a few weeks ago who took 6 days to be induced! It's scared me a bit. DP is here but he will be going home shortly. Got my kindle and mumsnet for company. grin

Hoping I log back on in the morning and you've got baby news! Goodnight, try to rest as much as you can.

Blimey, that was fast! Congratulations! Enjoy those newborn cuddles - in a blink of an eye mine has become a rampaging 2 stone toddler!
