My due date is this thursday and im having a sweep but hopefully it will get things moving. Avoiding induction like the plaque and will be opting for planned c-section if the sweep don't work. That's the plan anyway.
Baby has been 4/5 engaged but today ive had tremendous lower back pain and that real heavy feeling/pressure in my pelvis and rectum area.
Weird thing is, I keep going to the toilet for a number 2 at the same time in the early hours this week lol Strange.
Opting for a VBAC, so fingers crossed i get what i want for a change .
So I have THRUSH now! No baby but bloody thrush. Pissed off because the doctors are full to capacity and can't get medication over the counter, so got to wait for OH to finish work and get me some. I've read up on a thread from netmums and quite a few did the same, just didnt use the applicator to get the cream up there.
Ive got some cream already but i need a pessary for inside.
Oh the joys! No other signs of labour nearing, other than feeling him really low at times. Ahh!
Contractions on & off since yesterday not consistent enough to even call my doctor though. I have an appointment tomorrow so if they continue I'll mention it. I just hate going in to the hospital for nothing. It's time consuming and exhausting.
Aww thrush is no fun hope that clears up quick!! I have a terrible case of hives from who knows what, been very miserable the past few days especially at night. My Dr. Was stumped and they ran liver tests on me just in case.
Na I couldnt handle getting Hives, forget that. Hope you get better soon.
I struggled to get a doctors appointment but OH called up and demanded one, so they gave us one yesterday afternoon. Doctor just gave me a prescription for pessary which i inserted last night, but a little chalky stuff has come out. Not sure if it properly dissolved but would have thought most of it had over night. I think im quite dry up there to be honest, which is never usually the case! Crazy.
I have my sweep tomorrow, so hopefully that gets things moving. It's also my due date tomorrow too. I think he has moved lower down and is putting pressure on my bladder or cervix as i keep waking up slightly wet.
I had my sweep yesterday and I was 1cm dilated with a 2cm - cm soft long cervix. Apparently it was very stretchy and soft. I'm losing bits of my mucus plug and have a few stabbing sensations in my cervix but nothing else apart from that really. I have a c-section booked for Monday anyway as don't want to go too far over. I just cant wait to meet my little man! Hopefully, I will go into labour on my own though.
