They've told me to come in for 7am.

Soooo much adrenaline flowing now that I can't feel the pelvic pain that has been kicking my ass since January.

Exciting times wink

smile good luck! Exciting times xx

Lizkmg Thu 24-Mar-16 06:06:35

Thank you, this feels like the longest 2 hours of my life

PennyHasNoSurname Thu 24-Mar-16 06:13:24

Ooooh exciting!

Be prepared they may say "you arent dilated please come back either when cxns are at a certain stage or 24 hours whichever is first"

Id try and get the MW on side and if you are even slightly dilated try and get her to guve you a Sweep while she is up there.

Lizkmg Thu 24-Mar-16 06:18:21

Ooh thanks I definitely will do. My contractions have started but they are really, really mild and 20 mins apart. I will ask for a sweep though definitely thank you for the advice

Nowthereistwo Thu 24-Mar-16 06:21:18

Good luck. You'll be holding your baby soon.

PennyHasNoSurname Thu 24-Mar-16 06:21:53

Ahh thats a good sign. I start work at seven so hope all goes well and I will check back in my tea break, what a lovely and exciting time this is for you!

Best of luck for a sneeze birth.

MummySparkle Thu 24-Mar-16 06:49:43

Oooh, exciting times! Good luck OP

StormTr00per Thu 24-Mar-16 09:10:42

Good luck op!

stolemyusername Thu 24-Mar-16 09:13:52

Yay! You're going to have a baby!!

magratsflyawayhair Thu 24-Mar-16 09:37:05

How exciting. X

Lizkmg Thu 24-Mar-16 11:06:48

I have been sent home with instructions to come back when contractions are more painful and every 3 minutes. They are already every 4 minutes, but on a scale of 1-10 pain wise I'd say they are about a 7 only. Luckily we only live 10 mins from the hospital so can get back there nice and quickly. Midwife said she expects she'll see us again this afternoon, but if not I'll be induced tomorrow at 10am!

So one way or another baby is on her way !!!

Oh the excitement! marks place

I love a good labour story me!

Lizkmg Thu 24-Mar-16 17:40:26

Still at home, contractions very sore now. Called hosp again they've said to come in when it becomes unbearable. It's not far away now that point.

2Offwhitecurtains Thu 24-Mar-16 17:42:20

Liz. On a scale of 1 to 10 how excited are you?

PennyHasNoSurname Thu 24-Mar-16 19:15:54

Ahhhh I was so excited to come back to this thread after work and hope you were snuggling a baby.

Hopefully not too much longer!

CatsCantFlyFast Thu 24-Mar-16 19:18:26

I'd be careful with the warning of waiting until unbearable. Mine never got to that point with first baby. Good luck x

Luckystar1 Thu 24-Mar-16 19:22:30

Would echo Merkin, I lied and pretended mine were bad to get admitted... DS was born 1.5 hrs later.

Good luck!!

Ps Merkin I'm not liking your mention of 'first pregnancy' I'm holding out for the same for #2...!!

CatsCantFlyFast Thu 24-Mar-16 23:26:34

Me too luckystar

Hope you're getting squish cuddles op

icklekid Fri 25-Mar-16 03:14:41

Hope all is going well op not long now if your not already cuddling your baby /sleeping!

Nowthereistwo Fri 25-Mar-16 04:52:16

Hopefully your cuddling a baby already (or more importantly sleeping).

Agree don't wait till the pain is a 10 as you don't know how your 10 is to average.

I did gas & air with both babies and I didn't think I have a high pain threshold

PennyHasNoSurname Fri 25-Mar-16 21:00:37


Hope you are post birth and blissful OP

Lizkmg Sat 26-Mar-16 01:08:59

Baby arrived earlier today smile it was a pretty traumatic experience with a few things going wrong and an emergency c-sec at the end. But it's done now, my DD is here and healthy and that's all that really matters.

Exhausted but happy! Goodnight all & thanks for the well wishes x

ShowOfHands Sat 26-Mar-16 01:23:39

Oh congratulations and well done. Sleep well and if you have trapped wind (which can present as pain in your shoulder as if you've slept oddly), peppermint tea from the midwives will help!
