I'm seeing a consultant tommrow after going to docs last Friday, to see about being induced early due to many reasons:
1- I live in a block and its on the first floor, it doesn't sound bad but it's taken me at least 20+ mins the last few weeks to get up the stairs due to pain and being breathlessness.
2- walking up the stairs has caused me to have asthma attacks and by the time I reach the top I'm often sick in the toilet
3- I haven't sleept more than 3-4 hours a night for the last two weeks
4- I can't eat due to the fact the food gets stuck in between what feels like my throat and tummy
4- I've also had fake labour pains for the last 2 months, I've been rushed to hospital many times and nothings ever been done, no explanation.

What are the chances of him inducing me? If I wasn't in this much pain I'd wait till he was ready but I just can't. Please don't say "this is normal" that's driving me nuts.sad

Poor you, that sounds horrible. I don't have any advice to give but I didn't want to read and run. Hope you have your baby soon!

I've got lots of health problems and disabled. I take a lot of very strong medication even when pregnant. The absolute earliest they will do my c section is 39 weeks, and that's despite all the severe pain and debilitating symptoms.
Good luck , stay strong!

They did offer to admit me as inpatient before and stay there until baby comes but still wouldn't do any earlier unless life threatening.
