    So been in hospital since about 4am saturday night/sun morning however you'd put it! was having contractions so they hooked me up to ctg in delivery suite, there was loadsss lol and i was really in pain so they gave me paracetamol and got me into the bath. as soon as i got into the bath, blood everywhere! liquidy, chunky stuff, so midwife declared i'd had my show and not to worry.

    Got out of the bath and hooked back up to ctg, had an internal 2cm dilated, frowned when i heard this because of hearing so much about the dreaded 2cm!
    As we hadn't been to bed yet or eaten since about 6 on sat they gave us lots of toasttt and tea :D and the midwife talked away to us for ages, she was actually LOVELY. after second ctg i had another internal, just over 2cm dilated, and as my 'liqur' is low but havent recalled waters breaking we were moved up to the ward. basically had about 4 ctgs throughout the day, skip had to leave around 11 after loadsss of walking around lol he was shattered, so tried to go to sleep but one of the girls on the ward was well..snoring..really horribley so i couldnt sleep lol. had another internal this morning and ctg and my blood pressures low, but they let me come home as only 3cm and im actually not in any pain anymore just feels like somethings dangling between my legs!

    so basically, the plan of attack is a big big walk and hot hot curry tonight! then back in for my scan at 9am tomorrow and if liqur is low im being induced!

    and jus ta wee tip for your bags ladies, pack earplugs!

    By the way, did you ever ask what the fluid level is for you? Mine is quite low, I am just waiting for Weds to see what my OB says.

    No sorry! i didnt ask but im positive they've wrote it in my notes somewhere as the midwives were quite concerned. if not i'll ask at my scan in the morning and report back!
