I'm currently being induced at 37+4. Had the pessary at 2 but not going to do much as cervix is still long and not effaced at all. Have alot of back ache but nothing else. Currently bouncing on the ball like mad.

Company anyone ?

Keep bouncing!

Good luck!

I was induced at 37 weeks, took 3 days for me! Keep bouncin!

Good luck! Apparently nipple stimulation (expressing!) and orgasm are meant to help... Just some suggestions in case you fancy ringing the changes with ball bouncing wink

Ooh, good luck smile

Thanks guys. Hopefully doesn't take so long but kind of expecting it to as nothing is happening so far. So decided and scared this is my first baby and I have no idea what to expect

I was induced with ds. Pessary at 9am, delivered after 6pm.

mummyneedinganswers Fri 13-Nov-15 22:13:41

Lol Pls let me have this one first ????

mummyneedinganswers Fri 13-Nov-15 22:14:29

toto72 I would love for that to happen but I am having no tightening at all and have no sign of anything happening x

RoTo72 Fri 13-Nov-15 22:16:26

Hopefully things will start to move. Will they wait to morning for second one if this doesn't take?

BreeVDKamp Fri 13-Nov-15 22:17:03

Ooh good luck!!

Hope the midwives aren't being negative nellies - mine were all 'ooooh, first time mum, you'll be here for days...' angry

In actual fact it took 1 pessary, 12 hours and I went from 2cm - born in 40 mins.

We obvs need a pic of the baby when it's over!

How exciting!

Do you know what you're having? Any name choices?

mummyneedinganswers Fri 13-Nov-15 23:27:21

The hospital I'm in only give one pessary for 24 hours if nothing has happened they then break waters or start drip which is why I think majority of inductions here fail.

Bree yes I have been told not to expect her here tonight or tomorrow but I have faith as I have horrendous back pain atm. I so hope something kicks off as they have just put pessary back in place as it had slipped down FFS. And ofcourse I will update with pic when Albion would be cruel not to.

ballerina we are having a little girl so I can't wait. We have chosen Macie as her name smile

Macie is a lovely name, hopefully she's on her way asap

RoTo72 Sat 14-Nov-15 01:15:19

Keeping everything crossed for you

ExBallerina Sat 14-Nov-15 02:27:48

Hope she's here soon!

Come on, Macie star

BreeVDKamp Sat 14-Nov-15 06:25:36

Ooh my pessary slipped out too as I had dilated.............

OP is tooooootally pushing right now!

Or sleeping.


SunnyDays1987 Sat 14-Nov-15 06:49:17

Good luck! I was induced at 36 weeks and it took two pessaries but I went from 1cm to delivery in just over an hour once it all kicked off. It all started with bad back pain for me too. Good luck smile

mummyneedinganswers Sat 14-Nov-15 07:27:53

Morning everything has stopped back pain gone and no niggles at all I just have horrendous sickness now. So looks like IL be needing the drip soon. Just glad I managed a few hours sleep

RoTo72 Sat 14-Nov-15 08:27:39

Try and rest as much as you can. Hope things move soon for you x

sepa Sat 14-Nov-15 08:30:45

Good luck!

Macie is a lovely name. Hope she is with you today!

mummyneedinganswers Sat 14-Nov-15 10:38:14

I'm petrified of when this drip goes up, haven't a clue what to expect at all

RoTo72 Sat 14-Nov-15 11:07:47

I had drip and things moved pretty quick. I was 3cm with the pessary by then.
