If you're the certain someone who knows me in RL then shhhhhh...

Ive been having, what I think are, contractions since I woke at half 5 this morning. Period cramp type tightenings across my lower abdoman? They are coming every 7-10mins and lasting around 60secs. This is mingled in with a UTI, slight constipation and piles so I'm slightly confused and have generally been sore in this area since yesterday.

No show or waters but increase in thick mucusy discharge.

I'm due to be induced today - do I just play it by ear and go in at scheduled time or phone up the assessment unit?

Personally I'd play it be ear.

What time should you go in, and why are you being induced (medical reasons or post-dates)?

Going in at 2, 40+11 today.

All seems to be going quiet anyways sad

Good luck smile

Just try to keep moving I would say

Go for a brisk walk as my midwife always told me I was 40+13 before DS6 finally arrived.

Oooft - not quiet. Picking up a bit, off for a shower.

Pains are quite manageable but she wanted me in as baby not engaged last week.
