Waiting for labour - feeling very sad

I'm 38+3 and my DF is in a hospital 50 miles away.
I have been visiting with my mum but its a long day, plus the visiting is restricted at the moment due to norovirus affecting the hospital. So it's 3-5pm then 7-8pm so there's a two hour waiting around the hospital gap.
I'm feeling very sad because I know my DF is getting depressed at being so ill for so long (leukaemia - had a bone marrow transplant a year exactly today) and for the first time the other day he said he thinks it has finally beaten him sad
This will be first grandchild and have been getting lower back aches and cramps but I feel I just want baby to come out now to hopefully give my dad the motivation he needs to stay positive.
I've been trying to do all the home remedy things to bring on labour, but getting fed up nothing's happening.

I'm happy about the baby but I just am feeling so emotional at the moment and guilty I can't support my parents as much as I want to.

I'm so sorry to hear of your loss, but it must be a great comfort to you knowing he got to meet his granddaughter. Take care.
