Maybe call the labour ward? I wouldn't be calling my midwife unless I was having a home birth.

Bekkygirl92 Sun 27-Aug-17 16:53:06

She told me to call her when i was in labour cause shes meant to be delivering her. I went to labour ward about 2 hours agp and they sent me home

Stay calm, you're progressing and that is good. Do whatever helps you to cope. Staying on your feet is good.

When your contractions are about 5 mins apart and you can't talk through them is roughly when you're supposed to call the hospital so you could probably chill where you are for a bit longer. Or feel free to call labour ward again for assessment.

It's all going to be ok, you can do this.

Bekkygirl92 Sun 27-Aug-17 16:58:26

Sounds like it won't be a horribly long labour. You can do this. Breathe. Long and slow. Good luck.

Bekkygirl92 Sun 27-Aug-17 17:05:03

I hope not, but yeah contractions are about 6/7 mins about and lasting 90 seconds. My water hasnt broken yet but have had the show

Exciting day for you! smile

Mumof41987 Sun 27-Aug-17 17:25:42

It still could be pre labour . Have u managed to get in touch with hospital ?? Good luck

Mumof41987 Sun 27-Aug-17 17:26:52

Why did hospital send you home ? I'm a midwife and we only send ladies home that are not in active labour . Did they examine you? Are you dilated ?

Bekkygirl92 Sun 27-Aug-17 17:28:22

Am headi g back up to hospital now as im really uncomfortable and they getting more intense

Which midwife is supposed to be delivering baby ? Most community midwives do one shift In Hospital a week and would never tell a lady they want to deliver her baby . Of course if your lucky when you go into labour and she is on duty she most likely will request to look after her community patient ?

Mumof41987 Sun 27-Aug-17 17:30:08

Were you dilated ? Could be head engaging which gives labour like pains

Afreshstartplease Sun 27-Aug-17 17:31:28

Ooo how exciting good luck op
