Never been through "real" labour as was induced with Jess.

I am now 36+2 with baby number 2 and have been up most of the night with the most horrific back pain and pains under the bump..... is this normal?

I had a bath but that hasnt done anything, so do i need to get checked or do i take a few paracetemol and see if that helps?!

Aww JM I hope it happens for you soon! Must suck to be off your food... I keep going on curry binges - at least you won't have as much excess flab as the rest of us!!

jessicaandbumpsmummy · 25/09/2005 18:31

have managed one slice of toast for breakfast, one slice of cheese on toast for lunch and one sausage for tea..... just cant face food.... liquid on the other hand is a different matter - all i want to do is drink!

was Jess early?? This sounds like my labour with dd2.

fastasleep · 25/09/2005 18:33

Hmm I've been a bit like that today too... although I bet by ten I'll be begging DH for a curry and some vegetable samosas again

Just grab that hubby! Force him to do the nipple thing lol

Jess was induced a week early for personal reasons (bloody army!) so i have absolutely NO IDEA what going into labour is like!

Itsj ust pains on and off and no appetite whatsoever.... have also had a few bowel clear outs if thats any use?!

It could be the start!

munz · 25/09/2005 18:53

oooooooooooh FS that's mean saying that! lol, hope it will be soon JM for ur sanity! lol - r u still gonna tell the m/w DH is going away on weds, to try and get an induction?

jessicaandbumpsmummy · 25/09/2005 18:54

i dont know hun..... ill see what MW says first!

REally want this over with now, but would ideally like to wait til thursday/friday as ill be 37 weeks and baby SHOULDNT need any assistance!

OP posts:
munz · 25/09/2005 18:56

lol - ah famous last words!

fastasleep · 25/09/2005 18:58

Hey munz I'm allowed to be a meany I'm the same amount of weeks as JM and I'm going mad too lol...

Anyway if she's going to be naughty and get an induction in an unorthodox manner while I sit around waiting for my homebirth for the next 4 weeks I'm going to continue saying mean things

I'm sure little Matthew, James, Aiden or Jess The Second will come soon... I hope you get chance to relax!

Coathanger · 25/09/2005 18:59
