started getting regular contractions around 11pm.. averaging 1 min 8 each, coming at 4 min 13 on average also. so rang l&d - a lovely midwife told me they look for 4 contractions in 10 minutes. advised me to keep fluids up, take some painkillers, have a bath and keep moving. been walking round for last hour anyway. just climbed in bath. i can't wait to just have a rest especially after almost zero sleep last night. xxx
edit @ 5:10 - managed some broken sleep. just walking around hoping to kick things back off x
edit @ 6:30 - no more contractions, tiny bit of fresh blood. i'm absolutely shatteredx

Has anyone else had a bit of a melt down with all of this waiting, being uncomfortable and generally fed up?
I just had one - feel like a right numpty!!! Me and the OH thought we would try being intimate tonight to see if it might help thing get going (sorry if TMI) and we just couldn't find a position where I was comfortable ....and my back and hips were killing me - been soooo friggin fed up lately - can't believe I actually miss being at work!!!!
uh - just feel so tearful today

Cant say Ive had any melt downs yet. I think Ive just come to accept that nothing is happening until I go in to be induced now, so Im busying myself with thoughts of everything I can get prepared like food shopping, changing bedding etc..I guess thats an upside of being induced is that you have an exact date. Im hoping please god that they have beds available next friday and by this time next week she will be here.
Ttc since December 2007!

i've been a grump on several occasions but i did have one day where i cried and cried because i just felt so fed up, few weeks back now.
update on my behalf, still had no sleep since wednesday. seriously struggling this morning when oh woke up and he insisted on calling mw while i showered despite me saying it was fine all part of pregnancy. anyway was advised to go down, by the time we got there i was bawling my eyes out. 2cm dilated, waters are bulging, cervix lovely and thin. could of stayed on ward but chose to have two codeine and come home. mw thinks baby could be back to back explaining why my back is in so much pain. aching eased off a little now codeines kicked in. contractions very sore when they appear though, feel v tired now she said i might. advised to have a bath and rest if i need to, and she would 'see me tonight' so hopefully, fingers crossed, things will really pick up and i'll have my bambino by tomorrow night perhaps..
aww. you miss being at work? really?! i don't at all, except it's felt like a longer wait as have had like nothing to do!
hopefully your sweep will work claire and you won't need a bed next week! xx
