38+1 here, awake with insomnia, very jealous of your situation.

All the best! How very exciting, when did you realise it was time?

Contractions 5 minutes apart but no real pain for over two hours. Got to MAU for a look and I was 4cm! Straight down to the delivery unit to break my waters and an hour on from my waters breaking, I'm sucking on gas grin

Is your DH back yet

Hope you're enjoying the lovely gas & air & all is going well 👍🏻

I wish I'd had gas and air at 4cm... didnt get it until 9cm when I arrived at the hospital because none of the midwives believed I could be so far along with irregular contractions...

Good luck!

He's back! This labour is not going as fast as I'd hoped hmm

Currently sat awake in hospital with my newborn DS, had him at 7am yesterday after 9 very long hours of labour (38+5) Hope everything goes great for you OP! Good luck flowers

DC are 11 and 8.

Just had an epidural due to back labour although it doesn't seem to have bloody done anything for the back pain, just the front pain! 🙄
