    I'm back and buzzzzing!!!

    So.....first of all THANK YOU Anne-Marie for updating :hugs: and thanks for the well wishes on her thread girls too :hug:

    As Anne-Marie said I ended up on at the day clinic for montioring after my feet seemed to go right up and I was getting pins and needles in my face and seeing these sparks/stars......

    They told me too come straight on and yes my BP was up - she said they will let it go up by 15 on the bottom number over your normal rate and mine was exactly 15 up and my pulse was up too.

    She put me on the monitor and Hebe's HB was a bit erratic but settled after about half and hour or so. I has getting BH's which went up to about 60 (dunno what they measure them in!) and she said as they were irregular you could tell they were BH's but we'd see if they were doing anything if I wanted to....ie. do an internal!! So I was Errrmmmmm HELL YEAH!!! So after a bit longer on the monitor she's did a speculum to check my waters were still intact and as they were she said 'we may as well encourage these BH's and do a stretch and sweep' :happydance:

    She checked my cervix which she said was soft, 50% effaced and I'm 2cm (the dreaded 2cm!!!!) so something is happening and maybe the sweep will jiggle things along.

    I'm not getting my hopes up at all but I feel so good that something is happening. When I was examined at 41+3 with Emily they said NOTHING had happened and I felt such a failure :( I feel like I can handle another 2 weeks now knowing my body is doing SOMETHING how ever small.

    YAY!!!

    Fantastic news sweetie. :hugs: Now you know something is happening you can chill back and drink some more Raspberry leaf. Just think, the next time you go in you'll leave with Hebe. :dance:

    It's hard to say Sarah - we went straight to the supermarket and I was buzzing round coz I was so happy with how things had gone. While I was waking about I could feel a bit of acheyness in my lower back and the usual pressure between my legs. I'm not sure it would have been any different without the internal.....of course every little thing now I'll be thinking 'Oh is this something??!!'
