Oh lovely @maise_moo I'd say you feel like a new woman!! I am finishing up work on Friday and then section is booked for Wednesday so feel like the walls are starting to close in trying to get everything finished in work, the christmas tree up and the house ready for baby! Luckily I'm squeezing in the hairdresser on Thursday!

Ah it'll be lovely for you to treat yourself on the 11th so hopefully you get to keep the appointment!

God 4 days I know they do need to tell us everything but then again sometimes I wish they didn't - ignorance is bliss!

Hope you're not too stressed with work Becks. You need to be relaxing at this stage.
Atleast house and tree sorted though. Enjoy the hairdressers.

I'm like a new woman after the hairdresser/beautician. Baby better come quick as I have fast hair growth

Shelli. Defo keep hair appointment. You will need it to feel better about yourself. Pep you up!
Never knew induction could take awhile..I naively just presumed you had baby on same day haha.
Atleast you know you could you waiting to progress and it's all normal so you wont be stressing/wondering why is there no movement. You'll be great. Just make sure you have snacks/long charger lead/netflix/music.

so induction depends on what they do, with gel, yes it can take a while. if they burst your waters its fast and furious but equally exhausting. i'd say to all of you having your first baby, don't be afraid to ask for pain relief if you need it and you want it. some people sail through with nothing, others need pain relief. Do whats right for you.

Mine either! I didn’t mind too much as my daughters birthday is the due date so I didn’t want to miss that. But it’s over now I’m ready!! Will be having another sweep on Monday I believe. Thought something was happening after he last one, was quite crampy and lost the plug but nope

was in to see my consultant this morning and imbookef for a section in just over a week now.
Husband will be allowed in for the birth and a couple of hours abd thats it. So i'll be on my own for a few days till i get discharged. The e hospital is walking with covid so im not surprised but still abit disappointed that i'll have no help or support. anyways, hope youre all doing well, im sure the first december delivery will arrive very soon.

That's really tough going but I suppose at least you know they're doing their best to keep the babies safe. Hopefully you won't be in too long x

Hi all.
Baby girl arrived yesterday just after 4pm.
9lb 8oz of pure perfection.

It was a long and tiring 2 days but overall a very positive experience.

Restrictions in NMH are very limited and husband has got to spend lots of time with me & baby.

I'm hoping to get home tomorrow morning.

Hope your all doing well and enjoying your last days of pregnancy.

Happy to answer any questions on induction or hospital or anything else.
