Due tomorrow, started to lose plug this morning. Periody pains for lastt hour and can't keep off the loo!!! Also leaking now and then? (Possibly waters? Aren't they meant to either gush or steadily trickle)

Anyhow. Watching back to the future and scoffing jaffa cakes.grin

Oh, good luck! flowers

IndomitabIe Sun 25-Oct-15 21:37:39

Good luck!

My waters went with an unmistakable POP! So no idea on the trickle/gush front.

Wishful80smontage Sun 25-Oct-15 21:39:10

My waters went with a gush too- have you called mat assessment yet?
Exciting OP- do you know gender?

Sleepybunny Sun 25-Oct-15 21:42:34

Exciting! Keep us updated! I'm 35+5 with DC2. Wondering how long my wait is going to be grin

RattleAndRoll Sun 25-Oct-15 21:52:07

Ooh exciting!
I'm pretty sure they can trickle or gush.
Don't they tell you to put a pad in your knickers so if they need to they can check it is waters?
Good luck!

Any update OP?
I'm 34 weeks this week so Im not too far off myself now eeeek smile

sad period pains turned into full blown contractions most painful things I've ever felt in my LIFE. 4 hours of it before I rang in and went to hospital. Subjected to an "assessment" aka bloody painful sweeplease without warning!!!! Most annoyed about that. Then sent home because I'm completely closed sad contractions have now slowed to a miserable halt... feel like I've been a couple of rounds in the ring. Fed up. Petrified of what's to come. Yay.

I had a full day of contractions two weeks ago which faded to nothing at 11pm and haven't had a twinge since. I've had two sweeps and still fuck all. Induction on Sunday if she's not out before then. Im39+1 today but have severe SPD and have held off induction so really wanted sweeps to work. Hope it kicks off for you (and me) soon xx

Good luck both hopefully not long for either of you.
OP I know its easy to say but honestly try not to be too scared- I worried sick beforehand last time- honestly expected it to be awful it was actually bearable and with gas and air I was ok- I'm a complete wimp if I can do it- anyone can smile

Sleepybunny Mon 26-Oct-15 18:59:10

Sorry to hear that OP. Hope things go smoothly and your LO arrives soon.

wishful sounds like you had a really positive experience! You've given me hope. Can you tell us your birth story?

MrsA2015 Mon 26-Oct-15 20:06:13

Still contracting 3-5 min apart lasting anything from 30-60 seconds. I don't know what to doooooooo. Still keep crying about the sweep I had last night just feel so vulnerable sad was not expecting it all she didn't even ask if I wanted one.

Marshy Mon 26-Oct-15 20:10:55

I think you should be ringing for advice. Focus on now.

MrsA2015 Mon 26-Oct-15 20:20:37

marshy I've called in and got told only to bother coming in when I've either got waters showing or danger signs and to keep ta king paracetamol (useless stuff IMO). Feel totally fobbed off if I'm honest envy

Wishful80smontage Mon 26-Oct-15 20:32:05

Bless you OP keep pestering them if you think its getting stronger- hope you're ok OP

Sandsnake Mon 26-Oct-15 20:37:16

Sounds rubbish, poor you. And sorry to hear about the sweep that you didn't consent to. Sure you're already aware of this but that is not on - make sure you make it super clear next time that they're not to be giving you 'useful' sweeps when examining you (unless you want one by then, of course).

JoeMommuh Mon 26-Oct-15 20:39:58

I'd be wanting to go in for gas and air!! With my baby the waters never went, they had to break them when I got to 10cm and said they were "tough as old boots"

So you can't rely on waters breaking. Hope you get some proper pain relief soon.

Marshy Mon 26-Oct-15 21:11:05

Hope you're doing ok op.

Keep upright and mobile if you can. It'll help with thenpain. Are far from thw mat unit? Go in and be checked if you feel you need to.

I hadn't got a clue what was happening with my waters when I had my 2 - both straightforward vaginal births -so I wouldn't rely on that as an indicator of progress.

If your contractions are getting longer and closer together and need more concentration to manage, you probably need to go in! Good luck xx

Lweji Mon 26-Oct-15 21:16:24

Not sure how helpful for you, but for me a warm bath helped and lower back massages by H while on all fours. Remember to breath through the pain.

Slightly worried you're going to pop it before they admit you, though.

CharleyDavidson Mon 26-Oct-15 21:18:07

My waters went in a little trickle with every contraction, until after an hour or two I got the 'gush'.

randomsabreuse Mon 26-Oct-15 21:21:17

My waters went somewhere between 7 and 10 cm with a pop which I felt internally.

Frazzled2207 Tue 27-Oct-15 09:04:52

Best of luck. If still no progress try and go for a swift walk, this did the trick for me after 2 days of stop start contractions.

Marshy Tue 27-Oct-15 09:26:53

How's it going Mrs?

Lweji Tue 27-Oct-15 10:12:12

I suspect it did pop out. smile

MrsA2015 Tue 27-Oct-15 21:19:17

Update. DD born 5:30pm weighing 7.8grin water birth, gas'n'air and a whole load of farmyard animal noises. Outer body experience but so worth itflowers
