Cant explain.. not sure whats going on really, just feel like things are starting. (or do you think I could be hoping to much!!)
My fanjo feels like it is about to explode, my lower back is going on and off in spasms, and quite strong irregular tightenings. I know this vcould go on ofr a few days yet.. but body wise I feel different!! does this make sense.
I have put my babysitter on alert just incase we need her in the middle of the night.
(probably will still be here past due date.. on SUnday then will feel embarressed.. )
No show or anything yet.. just uncomfortable and enough to pain in back and tummy to make me wince.....
sounds like you are getting ready.....i;d potter around, have a bath, and go to bed.. you will wake if things are kicking off, if not, you will get some sleep ! try sex & nipple stim to see if that gets things going
well, had some contractions 10-12 mins apart for about an hour then nothing..
Didnt manage the sex.. I said somehting to dh which made me laugh.. I laughed so much I started to cough, I had to get out of bed, as started to wee.. myself I think.. .. But when I stood up it was like a gush, but nothing since. I have ablocked nose so couldnt smell, dh said it didnt smell like wee.
But as I was couging and trying to stop the flow I couldnt so not sure if a set of waters have gone or I just properly wet myself.. . had to go to the loo twice for a a wee within 10mins of that happening. Then was up twice in the night for big wees.. (normally only up once).
JUst going to wait and see what happens today and tommorrow.. ( I am at the hospital on monday if nothing happens before anyway)
Will keep you informed if anyone is interested. xx
I havent phoned the labour ward, as the pains have stopped.
(Havent noticed any leaking since.. This happened at about 1am)
Figured that if nothing has happened by monday I am back at the hospital then anyway, and that is within the time range to be left. (If it was the wters) I am keeping an eye on the los movements etc..
Nothing else happening yet, but still dont feel quite myself.. will keep popping on and letting you know.. hopefully if I gently potter I am hoping things will pick up again.. I can see one of my rests including me a pint of juice and my breast pump.. cant hurt..
Just had a snooze on the couch and now I feel like utter sh*t.. really drained and lethargic!! instead of refreshed.
geting some mild tightenings though, not as strong as last night. Going to sit in front of the fan for a bit and try and get some energy back then take ds for a little walk.
It is so hot here today.. I /was tempted to sit in the paddling pool..
Just went to loo and noticed pad was damp... and it had gone through to knickers, so think I could be leaking fluid.. or the discharge has become watery.. (sorry if tmi). So am going to give paddling pool amiss..just incase..
A quick question.. my first was c-section at 36weeks, my second was a vbac.. 2nd stage was 20mins and 3 pushes ( he flew out mw didnt get chance to guide his head or anything.. first opush he came into the canal, second push crowned..third landed on the bed.) 9went from 3cm to 10cm in about half an hour!) when labour does eventually start at what point should I make my way tot he hospital.. It is a 20 min drive.. (unless dh puts his foot down and we do the autobahn.. then we could ,make it quicker..!)
Is it more likley that this 2nd stage will be quick too..
(DS was op so the first stage was long but he positioned himself correctly and everything went from flash to bang.. this lo is ROA.)
once you are having regular, strong pains, that are in a rhythm, and persisting..also, if your waters go ....being on all fours in the back of the car, with your head down, and bum up in the air, can slow things if you feel it is progressing fast
