    The last couple of days have been so hard. The tightenings have been getting stronger and last night i was told it was because Ruby has settled in the back to back position. the pains are bad!!!!!

    I have heard back labour is painful but im also being induced tommorrow at 8am and they are using the Oxytycin (sp?) drip straight away as my waters broke friday.


    How am i going to cope with the pain tommorrow if this hurts so much??!!!!
    Im so scared

    Sam, just focus on your little princess, and that you will get to meet her soon! You are being so brave, just keep her in mind. Take your scan photo and hold it and focus on it when the pain is too much and realise it's all for a reason, you're bringing her into the world!

    Remember, you may have a longer labour as you are being inducded. But you can have a epijural.-- dont be frightend of it if you get offered it, take it if you need it
    I was induced with my daugther and the epijural was a god send :) Also the catheta means you wont have to worry about painful wees afterwards!


    You will be fine i know you will. I wish you all the love and luck in the world.




    (BTW your babies likley to share my daughters birthday shes 4 tomorrow)

    Don't worry, you'll be just fine.. Your body is made for it!! Like my m/w says you're not sick, ill, there's nothing wrong with you or your baby.. You need to embrace the pain, cause that's the price to hold your lil Angel, no??! Be strong, it's only one day in your life afterwards you have a child forever!! Focus lol!! good luck!!! xx

    My first was a back to back birth. Similar to you waters broke but then nothing else happened for me, contractions weren't strong enough for anything else to happen. I was given hormone drip to stimulate contractions (not sure if that is what you are getting). I ended up having an epidural to dull the pain and it did help. Keep trying your exercises to see if Ruby can move before you go, my midwife had mentioned that they encourage you to do this even when in labour now. They say that it takes longer to deliver a baby back to back, it took me about 11 hours from when drip started.

    Just keep calm hun and don't panic. You will see Ruby very soon and that is the main thing. She has to get here somehow. Just deal with each thing as it happens. Each labour is different, even ones that are back to back, and each woman handles it differently.

    Good luck and can't wait for the updates, at least now you will have pain relief for any contractions! xx
