There seems to be a few people coming from sarah-likes-love's blog to mine for updates. Just letting you all know, I've not heard anything, good or bad, from her! :( I'm hoping everything is alright ♥

Just did an update!

:)

Quick update while I have the chance.

Still no baby :(

I went in to triage today because that water stuff happened again and I had reduced movement, they told me to come in.

They looked at my pad and was convinced it was my waters and told me I’ll definitely be induced today. They got a doctor to do a speculum who said it wasn’t my waters and seems more like a lot of discharge. I had another speculum done by the midwife to double check a while later. I also was being monitored and Melody was doing good, I was having tightenings but they weren’t too painful.

So then they decided to send me home :(

I didn’t want to be induced, I’d much rather have it happen on it’s own, but being told I’d be going home with my baby in my arms, only to be told I’m going home with her still in my belly did upset me. I felt like it had been dangled in front of me and taken away.

I’m in so much pain with my spd and I just want her here now. I have my midwife appt next Wednesday and I’ll be 40 weeks 1 day, she told me I wouldn’t get a sweep until I’m 41 weeks but I might beg her.

I don’t know how much longer I can take. It really feels like my pelvis is just going to give way.

Also my cervix is the same as last time so there doesn’t seem to be much progression there.

So any tips on helping labour along would be appreciated!

:( I never got it!

If I do go into labour before Tuesday I’ll text thegirlwhowaitsforafamily and ask if she will update for me! :)

Super quick update while I have the Internet for a few mins…

Last night I went for a wee and noticed a damp patch in my underwear. It was massive but was kinda big. Big enough for me to wonder if it was my waters trickling.

When I wiped the tissue had a yellowy colour to it and i kept wiping and it carried on for a bit.

So I put a pad on and kept my eye on it. There was a bit of the yellowy liquid on the pad but not much.
When I researched it, the waters are a yellowy colour.

I’m going to keep my eye on it and ring the midwife tomorrow depending on if it carries on.

Won’t have Internet until Tuesday!

Might be able to pop on at some point like now, I’m at the old house and the wifi is still working here.

Placenta/afterbirth…

So I wanted your experiences with ‘birthing’ the placenta. It’s not very widely spoken about and I just wanted to know what it’s like.

How long after giving birth to your baby did it happen, what did it feel like, all that kind of stuff.

So either send me a message or reply or reblog and let me know :)

I’m so stupid.

I thought I was 4/5 engaged a few weeks ago as the midwife wrote brim in the notes but didn’t right how engaged.
I thought brim was 4/5.
But on Wednesday another midwife said I was the same as last time, but she’s written 3/5 so I’ve been more engaged than I thought. And that night she dropped even more so god knows what I am now :’)

Mini update…

So today we have got the most of our stuff in the house. Still some to bring but this is the first night staying in this house!

We have all the essentials.

For most of the day I was having contractions and they got so bad I couldn’t move.

About 6.30ish I started to time them and they were 7-8 mins apart and lasted for about 2 minutes, which I thought was pretty long. I’ve since started to use the TENS machine which has really helped so I don’t notice them as much. I can’t time them whilst using it because I can’t feel them as much but soon I’m going to turn it off and see what the situation is and time them if I’m still getting them. I’m not sure if it’s ‘real’ labour or just annoying contractions that I keep getting as part of this early slow labour. So we will see when I turn the machine off :)

James’ brother has let us borrow this mobile broadband thingy so I have the Internet!!! I can even use it in the hospital.

I know it may sound stupid, but I was excited to be able to announce Melodys arrival on here, my ttc, miscarriage and pregnancy journey have been the main thing on this blog…

I saw “Good News” and thought you were in labor or something!

Lol sorry! I didn’t even think about it coming across that way! :’)

I’m not that lucky yet! ;)
