Oh fingers crossed Lucy!!
IVF is so pricey isnít it.... is there an option to get it on the NHS?
Or do you have to go through all the waiting?

No news from here - frustratingly!!
40+2
Had the midwife today. She attempted a sweep but my cervix is closed, damn it! Was incredibly uncomfortable and for nothing!

Were you ladies over with your first babies?

Laura - how is Freddie?

This round is costing £6000! That is my house deposit pot emptied because I already have a daughter I’m not entitled on the nhs

I was 1 week overdue and ended up being induced because of reduced movements . It is pretty normal to go late with your forst! any questions ask away!

Ouch!! Expensive!
Ah yes I didnít even think about having a child already making you not eligible. Damn rules!

I keep reminding myself Iím only 2 days over but everyone I know that have had kids lately were early.

I have had one friend who was induced and she said it was horrendous... is it as bad as people say?!

Oh Lucy I hope it works for you. Everything crossed and gosh £6000!

I went 9 days overdue with my dd and was induced as my BP started getting high. Had mild pre eclampsia. I went 4 days over with Freddie but was natural.

Hes doing fab thanks fitting right in. We are not in a routine yet though it's all depending on how well we sleep lol.

I hope you go into labour soon hun I keep popping on to check you both are doing OK.

Hope to hear good news soon Lucy xxx

I personally didn’t find labour too bad, I was induced at 11am and my daughter born at 6pm. I spent most of my labour in a room with 4 others until I was 9cm and she was coming out, I New I was having aches and pains but wouldn’t say they were any worse than period pains ( I have bad period pains) and I didn’t realise they were contractions until it was too late! I did need gas and air for the last 5 minutes though!

But the thing is, if your labour is painful, there are so many pain options and you never should have to go through the pain, that is what my friend told me ! She thought she would have to go through most of it but then she found out she could have an epidural earlier than she thought and she said it was bliss!!! So don’t worry about the pain, you don’t have to go through it if it’s too much!

Oh Laura I’m so glad you and your little man are doing great!

My induction was alright. Bit more intense than my natural labour but gas and air for both labours got me through. It's the transition stage I find hardest. It's kind of a feeling of I can't do it they are stuck lol. My body pushed for me though if that makes sense. You just go with it really and when it's happening you go into a zone and all the things that scare you go out the window.

With Freddie I woke up at 2.30 with mild period pains went for a wee and lost my plug. Went and told my partner. Felt crampy so I said I'll have a quick bath. About 3am i got out the bath and could feel contractions every five minutes that were OK but obviously there. I went for another wee and had pink blood on the tissue. Phoned the midwife. Contractions were every three mins but I still could talk through them. She said get my daughter to family but wait a little longer to go in. She said second labours could be quick though. I got of the phone and my partner took my daughter to my mum's around 3.40. As soon as he left I was having to breathe through it. But I was walking about packing. Brushing my hair etc. He got back ten mins later. At 4.00 I was in the car and we were rushing to the hospital 50 mins away. Contracting every three mins and breathing through it. Got to hospital at 4.40. Got wheeled into labour suite at 4.50. I puffed on gas and air as it started to hurt properly when I got out the car. I yelled at the midwife I needed to push. Waters popped. And pushed for 20 minutes and he was out. Can honestly say I only felt properly in pain for half an hour. Was a pretty easy labour.

Try not to worry about induction etc. I completely sympathise how annoying it is for that due date to come and go. Its hard to feel you can't control it. Everyone advises you to rest etc but its hard. All I can say is she will be here soon and then time will fly. You still have a good few days and she will probably come before induction as you are doing great health wise x

Thanks ladies! Youíve made me feel a lot more at ease about the whole process!
Iíve still got a week for her to decide to come out on her own accord which I guess is a long time when youíre over 40 weeks but I just feel that itís not going to happen and I will def be induced.

Iíve tried everything they suggest and nothing has worked so today Is a new day and I have changed my mindset - she will come when she is ready.
Nothing else I can do!

husband and I are going to drive into Greenwich today (not far from here) and have a wander around the park and markets which will be nice.
Hope you both have a good weekend whatever youíre up to!

Hope Freddie is well and Lucy please keep us posted! Xx

You are feeling the exact same as I did both time. It's so bluddy frustrating lol. It drove me mad people saying eat pineapple. Have sex. Stimulate your nipples lol. Drink raspberry tea. I don't believe it works. A week is a lifetime at this point. The best part about induction is you are at the hospital ready lol. I was nervous about the journey with my first. It sounds really cheesy but when she is born you will be glad she's not two weeks old already because those first few days are so precious. I always end up thinking how is she or he a week. My partner goes back to work on Tuesday. I'm not sure how two kids and a house to run works on my own lol!!!.

Lucy when do you find out if the ivf worked. I hope you don't mind me asking how many eggs are they putting in for you. My sil had success on the second day attempt and had two eggs implanted and one baby girl was born nine months later. It's so sad how much it costs. You clearly are an amazing mummy and deserve it to happen easier than this. I really can't wait to hear from you.

We are getting little one registered today. Another job to tick off. Everything is such a rush this time we've only just booked it in. Xx

oh yes!! I NEVER knew your body does the pushing for you ! everyone told me of the horror stories, which i think are sometimes exaggerated, but no one told me your body pushes without you having to conciously push!

that sounds like a nice day planned londonkiwi

i had to go away with my first, move away from home and into the hospital 2 weeks before due date because i live too far away from a hospital. so i was a bit of an emotional mess by the time my lo came at a week late. I only got to see my partner on a sat night and sunday each week which was hard but it is all sooooo worth it in the end

raspberry tea is shit! i drank soooo much and i hated the taste of it lol it doesnt taste as nice as it sounds haha

i start my injections next week to start the process of IVF round 2!! my dr will only put one back in because of new regulations they have started to follow because of my age but i will see how many of my eggs fertilise this time and maybe have another chat with him....
