Glad to read this too as what she said about my cervix made me feel like this is doomed to fail or at least be extremely long and drawn out! Even though that's not what she said would necessarily happen. Guess we'll see!

Oh thatís stressful, Talia! Try not to worry too much, you will be okay. Definitely best to get baby out if you think movements arenít good, youíre past 40 weeks so sheís definitely fully cooked now!

I understand worrying about your eldest too, but heíll be fine, heíll be receiving so much special attention from your OH and anyone else around. Heíll probably think itís awesome, I hope!

How are you going now? Has anything got started? I was induced with my first so Iíve been there, it is scary, but most women get through it just fine and donít need extra interventions. Glad you have your Mum with you - stay calm and focus on the fact youíll get to hold your little girl soon!! Exciting!!

Thinking of you, let us know how you go.

I was induced on my EDD (40wk) with #3 but i was 3cm dilated. I went in around 7am, they gave me pitocin and i had her at 9:33pm. Shes a happy 10yr old playing with her sister right now.

I had a 2 and 1yr old at the time.... it was rough leaving them but they were in good hands.



PS- Here in the US, you can tell the hospital/DR NO to a c-section. I dont know about across the pond.

I had pretty much the same experience, bar having one of my other children with me when I went in to be checked. I went in in the evening for reduced movements and spotting. Got checked out and they wanted to induce. As it was late (10pm) they said I could go home, get my bag packed and come in in the morning which I did. I was soooo upset about being induced (for a bunch of reasons, most of them silly in hindsight) but it turned out to really be for the best (in my case the placenta wasn't up to scratch which was likely causing the reduced movements and some growth tail off) and I had a good labour experience. It did take a while before labour started but when it did it was very quick (51 minutes) and smooth. I hope the same for you (but without the wait )! Hopefully you have delivered LO or are in labour now but if it does take a while you could call your DS and read stories over the phone, do a little hospital tour over facetime, stuff to help you with missing him?

Thanks for all your replies! Helps to read other people's experiences too.
It's 8:30am now and not really much has happened although I had some contractions this morning while on the monitor, I did feel some back pains and tightening but thought it was wishful thinking until the midwife said it was very visible on the monitor. Then fell asleep again and they've tailed off but I was just heartened that anything happened at all. She said it might not be enough to put me into labour but hopefully will dilate me enough for them to break my waters. To be honest I will be quite crushed if this hasn't happened when they check in 5 hours time. But I guess it'll be cross that bridge if we come to it.
Have talked to ds loads on the phone he seems ok but was tearful without me at bedtime, sure that's normal. Bet he wasn't half as tearful as I was after we got off the phone, haha. what can you do, right...
I'm going to get up soon and walk my arse off round the hospital to try and encourage things to happen. Going into labour without having the amnihook would be great but they don't seem to think it's likely as I had the pessary so long ago now, so I'm clinging to dilation having happened while being terrified it might not have.

Glad all ok there Talia! Yes get moving my and bouncing as much as you can, anything is good! Hopefully they will be able to break your waters soon. Do you get another pessary if not? I ended up having 4 over 3 days! Fingers crossed that getting moving around works for you, keep us updated x

I just walked all round the hospital for 40 mins, up and down stairs where I could find them! Totally knackered now haha...come back to sit upright in bed for a while. Yeah I get another pessary but not until 48 hours after the first one!! So 24 from when they check me! So just seriously praying there's enough dilation.
Please send me dilation vibes ladies! 🙏

Fingers crossed! I had a pessary though my waters went and I was contracting regularly but it was 12 or so hours until I even started to dilate and it did take ages for me to get anywhere so it can be a long process but hopefully things kick start for you soon!
