hey everyone, its been a while since i posted on here, technically im not due till wednesday but this is 2nd baby (first labour was a fast 6 hours after 6 weeks of BH) and i had the midwife out to check me last sunday as id lost my mucous plug and been contracting but wasnt sure if my waters had gone (they hadnt) and im due to have a homebith if all goes well! BUT when checking me, she said i was 2cm dilated, easily stretchable to four so technically in early labour, i had been having contractions and cervix pain for aaages but nothing major.
all this week ive been on edge waiting, having on/off contactions all day and night, getting progressively worse and timeable, then they just stop, sometimes because ive changed position or sometimes on their own. Im not sleeping enough and my 21month old is driving me crazy because im exhausted and constantly in pain! a few nights running ive woken up with contractions so bad and close together i think it must be time and get out of bed to get the heating etc on, then they just stop out of the blue. im active, i spend ages a day sat in 'good' positions for bringing baby down into place and on a birth ball, we go on long walks everyday, my pelvis is in agony and im fed up!!! WHEN is this little monkey going to come out?!?!
anyone else had this, shall i ask my midwife to come and check me over?! dont know what to do!!!!!
