I am 40+1 pregnant with dc3. My first 2 pregnancies were lovely, easy and I actually enjoyed being pregnant. This one has been horrible. Hideous sickness at the beginning and then steadily getting worse spd starting on from then onwards. First 2 dcs were born early/on time. This one is a day late so far. I had a mw appt for a sweep today which she couldn't do as my cervix is 'unfavourable' and is unlikely to go into labour any time soon. Can only offer me repeat appt in a weeks time and then induction in 2 weeks time. I can barely walk I'm in so much pain with the spd. I can't get comfortable sitting down or lying down. I'm awake about 4 hours in the middle of every night with braxton hicks and bad pelvic pain and am so tired I can hardly keep my eyes open in the day but still have 2 dcs under 5 to entertain all day as it's the school holidays. The thought of feeling like this for another 2 weeks makes me want to cry and cry. Am so fed up
Sorry you are having a rubbish time. Hope things start for you asap and you don't have too much longer. I think the cervix can change to favourable quite quickly in subsequent pregnancies if I remember correctly. Good luck
Yes that's a good idea, thanks. A friend took the boys out for me earlier in the week and another friend offered for tomorrow to take them out for a bit so I've just got in touch with her to take her up on the offer. I am so lucky to have such lovely friends. I've been really touched actually with how fab my friends have been. I'm going to have a takeaway tonight. Try to get some sleep and then stop my wallowing! Thanks for the sympathy and here's hoping baby comes SOON!
