So after a long day of waiting for the go ahead, I'm finally going in for my induction this evening! Need a bit of a handhold as I'm quite nervous for some reason. This is my 2nd DC, first was also induced at 42 weeks.
I'm 40+1 today and was booked for induction due to 3 episodes of reduced movements (despite all being ok once monitored etc). Even though I've been induced before, it was 7 years ago!!
Anyone else having an induction, or near the end or just want to chat to keep my mind off things?!
I had an induction 2 on my DS. Thought my waters went day before my midwife appointment , so told her when she arrived day later and she sent me straight in. Had some tears leaving my then 7 year old daughter, as I went in not knowing what to expect. It was fine and labour started and ended within 4 hours. Good luck with everything, hope it progresses quickly! X
Oooh good luck @Frillyhorseyknickers I felt fine until I had to ring the ward this morning, then it all felt very real lol. Then to be fair, once I came into hospital it's been ok, been kept busy so I've not had time to overthink things. Its been a couple of hours since they put the propess in and I've started getting cramp like pains already which is good
I started the induction process with my youngest at 41wk, they put the thing in my hoohoo to soften the cervix on day1 in the morning, had a nap and woke up having contractions, lost my plug on the toilet, a few hours later i was in full-swing labour.... several arguments with nurses over them not allowing other half there whilst I laboured due to it being night time and on a ward so I was alone, he was allowed in the morning, and at 10pm day2 I finally gave birth!
Thanks for the well wishes! Haven't been able to update until now. After my last message, things moved along very quickly. My waters broke at 5cm and then 20 minutes later Dc2 was born!! Quite a shock to the system but all was good, slight graze but nothing that's been too painful. Was only allowed gas and air after water broke but managed fine. Midwives were great so can't complain
