Iím mid-induction!


So yesterday I FINALY got the go-ahead from the doctor to induce. Pessary went in at 6pm last night. Had nothing until 3am and then the contractions started. They were very frequent up until about 11am, and now theyíve calmed down but that could be because I havenít been very active - my pelvis is limiting me a lot
I have an examination at 6pm and fingers crossed thatís when theyíll be either inserting another Propess
Or popping my waters - baby is head down but unengaged, so the dr has said if my waters are burst by a midwife Iíll need another midwife to guide and hold the head in the pelvis to make sure baby goes into the right position.
Iím exhausted but so excited!
And yes, my worries were warranted about my UI making the contractions even more painful - because theyíre horrendous!

Oh, gosh, you've really had a rough time of it with this baby! I hope that sweet little troublemaker is here by now, or will be soon. I bet a screaming newborn is going to seem like a real break compared to the last few months and this induction drama!
