    hey

    Juts got back spent 2 hours on trace monitor as babe playing up:baby: little monkey.
    TUESDAY



    the midwife and consultant agreed straight away after looking at me that I would be induced on Tuesday at 8.30,I have to ring and check bed availabilty but hopefully. They said if my cervix is open then they will break my waters apprently it is 100% effaced now and 2cm's outer and 1cm's inner so should be enough to do at present state,and they can only break waters once an induction plan is underway so hence why not done before,if cannot break waters then prostin will be given.

    I am so pleased to have a date but am so scared all of a sudden,is this normal,lol?

    Thought I would let you all know and will be texting my text buddies so they can update

    thanks bex

    Good on ya hun!!!

    I found being induced wasn't so bad but i was only allowed to have the gel once a day .... (they induced me over 3 days)

    Can't say i knew what it was like to have it any other way!

    Hi hun great news on the induction!

    One thing thoughm, it might be worrt asking if they can just use the gel/pesserys to get you going, as having your waters broken dont tend to spead your labour up but much and just make your contractions more painfull, so perhaos see if they can do that as a last resort.

    I have a load of literature on this if your interested.

    Yes they have said I can have the prostin still if want,but they reckon will be quick (yeah right!) once waters gone.

    I am to have 3 lots of that prostin every 6 hours then a drip or something,arrrr shitting it now

    Glad there's an end in sight Bex. Not long to wait now.

    Just remember this is a short time in your life and the end result will be worth it. You can get through whatever is thrown at you and at the end you'll have your little girl at last.

    Don't be frightened :hugs:

    I was induced with madam, don't worry about it, the thing I liked was you are monitored start to finish, and so is buba. I am so excited for you.

    Enjoy your last few days of peace and quiet! :hugs:

    Good luck for tuesday bex. I didn't think the labour was any worse with the inductoin. I had one lot of prostin and then had waters broken about 7pm. Just as i was demanding epidural as mw said only 4 cm dilated and decided couldn't cope anymore, lo arrived just as they'd inserted drip incase bp dropped once epi done. (note to self must post in birth stories).

    I barely slept on the monday night as i was excited as i knew lo should be born within 48hrs , but also nervous/bricking it about the birth due to spd, and both my other lo born with cord around neck and dd having to be resuscitated.

    Will be thinking of you on tuesday and will try and keep up tto date on your progress but not online much at the mo as lo needs feeding a lot.

    Take Care
