Celesse, I know you feel like you'll labour better in hospital and that's why you ultimately chose it. But how about planning a home birth with the choice to transfer to hospital (and just know yourself that you're going to likely want to transfer) just so you have the community midwifery team on call (and any birth pack and/or G&A) should you end up pushing or delivering before deciding to go up to the labour ward? That way, you have the best of both worlds.
Someone I know is being induced. She had a sweep last week at 39w and has had niggling rubbish BH/ctx since then. Waters have gone and no labour. Im not going to say anything to her obviously, but am I right to be suspicious of the sweep? Just thinking of myself really for if I do decide to have one (wouldnt have one that early at all ofc, maybe at 41+w).
mines going down the outside drain, if youve got a manhole cover etc it could work. or would it work down the toilet? the water wouldnt overflow as it would kinda equalise the pressure? whether you use a pump or syphon its gotta go somewhere anyway.
