Oh Talia I was hoping for better news for you! Completely understand your point on the c section, that's where I was after 4 days and 4 pessaries still no cervix change so I didn't really have much choice but I was so done with being in hospital! And though it's not the birth I wanted we were both healthy and safe. I hope it doesn't come to that for you but if it does it's not the end of the world, you've still got time to get there yourself though! Keep moving and bouncing and hopefully things will start, it's rough being cooped up so try and keep your mind as active and occupied as possible. Like PP said it won't feel like any time at all once you are back home as a family

Thank you hun, I'm not going to let myself get really down about the prospect. Just do what I can for now and see what happens I suppose. I can't wait to hold baby. I hope you get your date soon and everything goes perfectly!

Ah hun I bet you are so fed up. If it's for reduced movements youd think they would do more like th drip wouldnt you. It's so hard being away from home. Just impossible to sleep isn't it. Especially when you are waiting to go into labour. It's hard. But your baby will be I your arms by the end of the weekend I'm sure. Things could suddenly start and I hope they do. It's horrible being away from our partners. And medical staff are so busy they can leave you for hours waiting which is frustrating too. Really hope you get sorted soon.lots of love to you. Hope the foods not rubbish lol I know I couldn't wait to be home and eat my own food lol xx

Thank you hun that's really sweet. It really is the worst being stuck in hospital, last time I was was nearly 3 years ago I had meningitis and, same as now, had no idea when I'd be going home. The food is crappy of course haha. But I eat it anyway and buy myself nice snacks in the hospital shop - have spent an absolute fortune! I bloody need the cheering up tbh..!

I'm about to have the second pessary in like half an hour. Had a couple of pathetic contractions this morning then walked for a full hour then they completely stopped. Sigh.

Good luck Talia! I hope baby is here soon. It is so hard to leave your little one to go into the hospital, I was exactly the same. Just think positive thoughts that you will be home with both of your babies soon❤

Thank you everyone. Update while I mess around on my phone to calm me down - not long after the second pessary went in at 4pm I started having mild contractions again. Then I had a BM and when I started walking around I had insane burning pain in my vag and the contractions stopped, I became convinced the pessary had slipped downwards - I had a similar burning feeling after the first pessary on Wednesday and asked the midwife to check to see if it had slipped. All she did that day was look between my legs, she didn't look inside, and said no it's still in. Well yesterday while on my 24 hour break, I had none of that burning pain. So I am now convinced the first pessary slipped downwards which is probably why it made no change to my cervix. SO. Earlier when it happened I called for my mw who is new to me today and is such a sweetheart and she checked and immediately said yes you're right it's slipped down. Hurt so much by then she gave me gas and air to put it back up by my cervix - burning pain went away and contractions started up again. Still mild/infrequent/irregular. That was at around 9pm.
They've very slowly worsened since then (it's now 2:45am) to the point where I had to keep putting down my book to breathe, but still not so strong that I was crying out or anything. Decided I would wait until 4 before calling my dh and a midwife. Couldn't bear the thought of being disappointed by yet more unproductive contractions that did nothing to my cervix. So I've been breathing through it on my own, even when some have been pretty bad.

Went to the toilet about 15 minutes ago just to pee, did it standing up over the toilet in order to avoid squatting and potentially pushing the pessary out. Straight after that I had the biggest strongest contraction I've had so far and immediately felt a gush into my knickers which were still round my knees. Looked down, saw blood, fucking crapped myself and pressed the emergency button. Midwife came in and said it's your waters don't panic. She calmed me down (contractions are back to being bearable), got me on the bed and checked me, then said I'm now not sure it was your waters because it's not still trickling, it might have just been your bloody show. I called dh and told him to come in, while he was getting up ds woke up and started crying. Because I've now calmed down and contractions aren't very bad again, I told him to get him settled back to sleep before coming (SIL is sleeping in the spare room, don't worry I wasn't suggesting dh leaves ds by himself in the flat, haa...)

So the midwife has stuck me on the monitor and gone somewhere, not sure where. Obviously I'm praying this is my waters. Once she comes back and I have a steer either way, I'll call dh again and my mum if necessary.

Right...typing that out through a couple of semi-bad contractions has brought my heart rate back to a normal level! So I can say that SOMEthing is happening. Let's see what.

That’s great news that something is finally happening! I hope you’ve made lots of progress since your last post! Can’t believe the pessary fell down, that’s something I never even considered. Hopefully if it stays put you’ll dilate enough to get your waters broken.

Here’s hoping today is the day!!
