Sooo, woke up to a good covering of snow this morning, got kids off to school then hubby drove me to hospital,( im a gutless wonder in snow and the roads were not clear) I had an ap at 11am to do bp, urine and monitor plus a sweep. we were prepared for a couple of hours but 4 hrs later...oh my word, i was starving! We had a student midwife who put the monitor on and the trace kept going, then the paper jammed then lost the trace again etc etc all in all i was hooked up for 3 sessions instead of the normal 1. Then another midwife examined me and said she could only just feel the tip of my cervix and it was posterior and long.Thus totally contradicting the registrar who did one last week and wrote, 1cm open, cervix soft and central. i mean, which is it eh?? apparently it doesnt go backwards once its started to move central and soften so what was going on today? This midwife made me put my fists under my back to tilt my pelvis before she examined, the previous Dr didnt do this, didnt need to so whats that about, I have a tilted uterus too so wonder if that made a difference. by this time I was worried about getting stuck at hospital as snow was settling again, my kids were let out of school early and i was starving hungry, plus we had gone over the 3 hrs parking and were charged £4.40! NOT happy!!
