I'm sending you some vibes! What do the MW's expect to happen now? Do they give you more gel or just wait and see if it starts again? If you're waiting and seeing, I would recommend rest, sleep is prob unlikely but rest as much as you can.

Just wanted to wish you well before turning in for the night Memoo.

Hope you manage to get some sleep (or if not, hope your young 'un arrives soon!)

Thinking of you x

Am off to bed too as long as I can kick this killer heartburn (36wks). Good luck and I hope you either get some sleep or get contracting!

Yep, rest as much as you can. My DD was a posterior labour and went on and on stop starting despite her being my 4th baby and expected to come quickly. I zipped about for the first 12 hours but was then induced later on and at 24 hours plus I so wished I'd conserved some energy.

Do you have TENS? If not I recommend.

You are very brave coping without your DH, i couldn't manage without my birth partner at all so well done for not being the wuss I was.

Do you know if the baby is positioned okay?

I'm sending lots of good vibes your way.

Hope you managed to get some sleep. Now - get walking! Gravity will help. At least that's what I was told.

Of course you many even have your baby by now!
