Hi ladies

You may have seen my posts over the last 12 weeks! Basically my waters broke prematurely at 25 weeks and by some miracle we have made it to 37 weeks today!!

At 3pm today I go into hospital, am being induced and hopefully meet my beautiful boy before the weekend is over (can you say optimism?? 😂😂)

I would like to thank you all for your supportive words and advice to my many many (many) posts and questions these 12 weeks!

If anyone has any induction/labour/raising a child advice for a first time mum please feel free to leave it now! 😂😂

MN has its downsides but you’ve all been amazing xx

Oh wow, good luck and wishes for a June 27th baby!

I've had 4 children, my 3rd was an induced birth and was my favourite of them all.
Walk loads and stay hydrated!

Good luck for today, how exciting !

Ooooh good luck! I was successfully induced at 36 weeks. My advice would be have the epidural as soon as you go on the drip. Then get as much rest/sleep as you can for the pushing stage. Don't be a martyr and refuse pain relief as you will become more and more in pain/exhausted and early inductions can be very long. Also stay upright as much as you can, bounce on the ball etc

Good luck!! Flowers

Good luck for today @MrsRose2018. Wish you a safe and smooth delivery x

How exciting! I remember your initial thread. I bet those 12 weeks have been the longest weeks ever that have (also) flown by. Hoping induction is well under way, and everything is going well this evening. You'll be meeting your DS before you know it.

My advice:
Be wide open to pain relief options.
Get as much rest as you can.
Stay hydrated!
Water bottle with warm water to spray over yourself while you were if you have stitches.
The first poo post delivery is awful, but take it slowly and easy. It might feel like it, but you won't turn inside out.
Baby hasn't read the parenting books. They hit their milestones at their own pace. Half of them can be skipped.
Try not to compare to other parents/babies.
Nobody knows what they're doing, no matter what it looks like on the outside.
It takes time, but you'll figure each other out eventually.
Remember you are amazing!
