Due tomorrow and SO fed up with false contractions... need some cheering!

Well I'm due tomorrow our first and so fed up with stop/stop contractions. They have been going on now for 2 weeks - and the last week, I've had them on and off, round the clock and quite painful at times.

Every time they start I keep thinking 'is this it'? And then they eventually stop again leaving me about to cry in frustration. To top it off, so far 2 girls in our antenatal class need to be induced, and I'm really scared I'll be the same. I know it isn't the end of the world, but want this baby out!

Been doing loads to try to cheer myself up, plenty of chocolate, nice food, DVD's etc, but just so uncomfortable now and the baby is so low (according to the midwife she is fully engaged!) I just want to meet our little girl and the end is so much harder than I expected.

Just fancy a moan really - anyone else reaching the end of their tether?

I'm due on Friday and I would love some false contractions! I have had absolutely NOTHING, no signs anything is happening or even going to happen. Not even engaged. Feeling uncomfortable and sluggish and grumpy and whiney.

Well I'm due today with number 2 and nothing! Hardly had a twinge. Had to be induced with number 1 and suspect this one might prove just as stubborn. Bah.

Thanks for your replies...Frankie I have the same thing - I'm hurting too because baby is so low. Guess I'll head back to the ball too! Don't think I've ever been so grumpy - lets hope things get moving soon for all of us!
