you can be as prepared as possible and still have no control. my labour progressed really fast with no pain relief, but it was my baby who got distressed which is resulted in an emergency c-section under general anaesthetic. i think just go in open minded and not too determined to stick to a birth plan because baby might have other ideas x

I agree nearly, I was set on not having an epidural but when it came to it my DD lay on my prolapsed disc and sciatic nerve and caused immense pain, I got to 10cm though so hoping this time will be the whole thing. I'm desperately hoping to avoid a c section though as obviously they cut through stomach muscles to do it and I really need mine to keep my back in check! Really hope that doesn't happen! If it does I'll just have to cope though
I'm doing hynobirthing practice and Pilates to prepare. I think I'll do some swimming soon too if I can get a chance to (need someone to watch DD so I can go!).

Baby has had me worried this morning! Not moving much, but I know babies have quiet days and mine does have them. Checked up on he or she using the Doppler and found the hb (quiet as I guess baby's in a position where I have to hunt for it) so I turned into my side and that little heart beating away but seemed faster than usual. Went to lie on my back again but lost the hb so went back on my side. Heard hb again but it was really slow for a couple of seconds then picked up again and beating its usual beat. I suppose it could have been where I lay on my back but still had me worried! I've heard it dip before but wasn't sure if it was baby moving away or whatever. But this was defo slowed down. Like I said it came back up no problem but hope this isn't an issue

Doesn't help I'm to be on nights tonight and can't sleep because I ache and can't get comfy! Now on top of that I'm worrying about baby

Ah Jary it's a constant worry isn't it? I would try not to worry about the heart rate too much because they are like us, if they are doing something their heart rate quickens and if they stop it slows. It could be that you literally just caught that exact thing. I don't tend to listen to the heart rate too much now as things like that can just cause additional worry when I'm sure he/she is perfect. If you are really worried get in to see your GP or MW just to check though

I spoke to a mw at the hospital and they are like 'oh you shouldn't use dopplers' she said baby's hb does change but i wouldn't be able to know if something is wrong. But I was concerned at how slow it dropped to. Slower than mine usually is. Anywho, she gave me a number for a me at a medical centre and she's sure it's fine but wants me to come down anyway.

Waiting for James to pick me up and now baby decides to do a dance. Lol I'm sure all is well but the hb was dropping even when I was stood up, so I'd rather make sure there's no occlusion in the cord or something like that.

I'm glad they are seeing you, I'm sure it's okay but better to be safe if you are worried. They always tell you never to use dopplers

Went to see mw. Hb is ok and mw said if it took longer than 15 seconds to come up then they'd worry but it was only for a few seconds....if they'd said that to me on the phone I'd have been happy with that but at least it got checked out. Hb is between 148-160 bpm, so nice and strong!

I feel like worrying for nothing but wanted to be safe and not sorry!

I worry about the heartbeat too. Sometimes I think it sounds weird, but then I think I'm over thinking it. It's harder to find now too than when she was just a little bean and in one spot! I fear that these little worries are nothing compared to all the worries we have ahead for the rest of our lives! There will always be something...yikes!
