    Have been on the maternity ward since 9am. Have had 1 lot of propess at 11am. No change except slightly more back ache (but this is as likely to be due to having to lie on my back for an hour whilst being monitored). Am on 4 bedded ward, the other 3 ladies are further on from me. one has been sucking on gas n air and sounds like darth vader.:winkwink:

    Have sent hubby home to get some rest, as nothing happening here and we both got little sleep in the night.

    Am due to be assessed again in an hour, with another pessary at 6pm.

    hohum, thought things might move quicker than this...at this rate will see babs right n christmas or later

    never mind, nothing else i can do now:shrug:

    Am now having regular mini contractions which is good. However, the mw on duty doesn't think I will be going into full blown labour tonight & am likely to go on an oxytocin drip tomorrow sometime. Glad I have a couple on hotwater bottles with me and have my tens as well. Think I will be needing some pain relief strategies tonight

    Went on oxytocin drip. Ow ow ow ow!then had very strong contractions all day. Had an epidural as couldn't cope with that level of pain. Told I could start pushing at
    11pm Christmas eve. Baby came out at 11.55pm! Very very glad she came out on as eve.
    Spent all of yesterday (Christmas day) on labour ward recovering as lost nearly 2 pints of blood and felt proper poorly. Baby Is a 9lb'er,
    and I got a 2nd degree tear and lots of stitches.

    Have just woken up after first night with babs ....
    It is bliss .
