So I guessed something was happening yesterday, but didn't quite believe it could be the start of labour! Woke up this morning at 4.15am with contractions about every 8 minutes; rang hospital at 5.00am and went in at 7.00am. Contractions about 4 mins apart at this point; baby is happy - the midwife monitored her for a bit, and checked her size and was happy. I'm somewhere between 2 and 3 cm dilated and need the contractions to carry on!! They've sent us home pending an event!! My waters still haven't gone, but have had a show/lost my plug, but the contractions have slowed down to 1 in 8 minutes. Anyone have any ideas how I can speed these up again - I really don't want them to stop, and want to meet my little girl sooner rather than later!!! Also if they stop, is there any indication when labour may happen, or could I still sit at 2 - 3cm for the next four weeks and end up being induced? (am 38 weeks currently!)? So am excited, but terrified!!!!
