Anyone Else Struggling & Want to have a bitchfest with me?




Feel free to vent. Im so done with this pregnancy.

17th - Sweep at 38 weeks. 3cm dilated, could feel baby...

Que me having bloody show, enough mucus for my partner to call me a bloody snail, enough braxton hicks to cover everyone using this website.

But nothing.

25th - Monitored for reduced movements, light contractions, more mucus, slightly high blood pressure but nothing causing concern. Sent home.

All through this looking after my 2 kids, on my own pretty much all half term, with extreme SPD. Im actually limping.

Ring this morning, as I cannot cope anymore... to be told to go in, and be prescribed codine. I refused as Codine makes me extremely sleepy and with 2 other kids, its just a flat out no. I was crying on the phone. They dont care.

To then be told, tough shit. Thats it. Nothing more then can do.

Im 3 days away from my due date. My next consultant appointment is 7th.

Im crying everyday, even in front of my 6 year old and im just so broken.

To then vent on facebook, to be told a lady whom is 2 weeks away from her due date, is getting induced on Friday due to mild SPD. I fucking give up.

So. How is everyone else doing?

Hi. I'm so sorry you feel this way, I know how you feel right now!!
I'm 35 weeks, 50% effaced, lots of braxton hicks everyday, dealing with very high blood pressure and was put on medication to lower it but nothing happens. On top of that I have Gestational diabetes...
So far my Bp readings have been between 145-150 range, but this morning it sky rocked to 169/106.. So I'll be calling my doctor tomorrow if it's still high tomorrow morning.

I also suffer from Spd and it's a horrible pain, especially now in the end when you getting more heavy, I totally feel your pain.
I didn't want to read and run but I hope you get some relief soon or they help you in possible inducing you!!

I'm here if you need to vent!!

Thanks.

Think i just broke even more.

Rang again today, saying ive changed my mind and would like the stronger pain killers... to be told 'Nope,' The midwife should have never offered me them in the first place according to the one I spoke to today.

My partner broke me too... He said hes never seen me cry like I have been these last few days I just cant hold it together anymore.


praying to go into labour soon, because I have no idea how im going to carry on like this.

Big hugs, girl!! I am so so sorry you are feeling this way!! The last few weeks are SO HARD, especially with the other things you are dealing with. Just think--this baby will be here soon. Maybe not today or tomorrow, but soon. I know the end seems like FOREVER, but it is so so so so soon now!!! I wish you could take a little break for some time just for you to relax

Sending you positive vibes lady!! I so feel you right now. I have two older kids as well (nearly the same ages as yours!), it's near impossible to watch them while dealing with prodromal labor 9am-11pm daily. They told me to take Tylenol + Codeine too... as if telling the kids "watch tv for the next 3 hours while mommy's on opiate painkillers" is a damn option!! I don't have SPD, but Restless Leg Syndrome's just been icing on the cake lately.

I promise you'll be done with all of it in a week and a half tops!!! We can do this!!

EDIT: I just looked up SPD, jk I do have that! Midwife just explained it to me last visit! Wtf pregnancy, we're over this.
