well i am giving up on going into labour on my own


I am still here, very pregnant! Off to hospital on friday night to be induced for the 3rd time! i am so upset. Midwife tried a sweep on Saturday but didnt work so trying again tomorrow not holding out much hope.

Being induced for the 3rd time means leaving my kids for 3 days, my husband only being able to stay for 1 night due to the cost of bed and breakfasts and me being stuck in a hospital i have never even been into I really thought i would go into labour on my own this time but maybe i am just one of those people who cant?!!! i dunno.

Just a vent really, i feel like crying. will never have the water birth i dream of and that excitement of spontaneous labour

it sucks. I was induced two out of three births. I wasn't allowed a water birth with my spontaneous labour anyway (I can't remember why but I do remember the midwife telling me that). So really that wasn't that different from my inductions. I hope you do go into labour naturally but if you don't you will soon be holding your little bundle x

I had an induction booked f,r when I was 41+6 and DD arrived at 41+5 so there may still be some hope for you to go into labour naturally. I didn't have any sweeps either it all happened by itself. Good luck

Sorry to hear .. hope your lo will surprise you and start making an appearance! There's a very good chance I will need a c section as our baby is breech and the one thing that bothers me is that I will miss going into labour spontaneously! I went into labour with my first LO after a sweep!

Good luck to you x

I'm also not allowed a wafter birth even if baby turns due to a high bmi! It's what I always wanted! I feel your pain x

It's not nice is it, I feel your pain. Induced at 41+5 on both my last pregnancies. E petting it to be the same this time too. I never have any labour signs and never seem to be able to have a sweep either x

so i did it, i went into labour on my own a week ago.......
ended up having a very traumatic birth, much worse than my inductions but i did it. 15 hours of hard back to back labour with only gas and air and i was able to be in the pool for a while.
